Josie Maran Whipped Argan Body Butter Duo Jasmine &Ginger
Ordered this because I have used Josie Marans products in the past and even though they are pricey I thought they were worth it. This body butter, however, does not reach her usual standard. I was so happy to see the BE LOVED Jasmine fragrance again! I had it in the face cream and it was the best smelling thing ever! This body butter was nothing like the other products. It was an awful aroma! The ginger was no better. I am so disappointed in this product I may never purchase any more of her line. She has expanded and has lost quality trying to offer a lower priced item. Sorry, hate to give a bad review, love QVC and am a long time customer, however I felt I needed to review this one.
I live out in the high desert of California, it is very dry and low humidity. I go thru various lotions quickly. I love this stuff! I appreciate that it is made from natural ingredients. I will say, you must let it dry before doing anything. It has made a huge difference in how I view other lotions and there ingredients. As far as the fragrances go, gladly they do not last. Some of them are a little strange. I love this at night, I use some on my feet and then wear socks, the difference is amazing! I can't wait to try other products from this line, I am very pleased.
I just received the Jasmine and Ginger whipped body butters a couple of days ago and I think they are wonderful. I disagree with the ones who say the ginger smells bad. If you are a cook and have ever used fresh ginger, or even the spice for that matter, this is exactly what it smells like. It reminds me of the spices you put in a pumpkin pie The jasmine is very light and smells wonderful also. I used the ginger this evening before I go to bed and I plan on using the jasmine in the day time. It feels wonderful on the skin, and if it does all Josie says it does, and I believe it will, I will be back for more. Thank you so much Josie and QVC for having her!!!!!"
I love this product, but in this case could not get past the fragrance. The Jasmine smelled like dirt and the ginger had a medicinal odor . Neither was at all subtle and was noticeable to other people. Did not find the vanilla apricot as offensive. Had to return these as it is pricey and I would not use it.
Lightweight, very moisturizing. Awesome scent. I love it!!!
Ginger scent the best
I have written a review before but I am so pleased with this product I have to sing its praises! My only problem is I would like both jars to be ginger scent. It is the most invigorating scent, it surrounds me after my shower and lulls me to sleep. For all of you who have reviewed that you do not like the ginger scent I will gladly TRADE.
Smell is terrible
I have purchased many of Josie's products with argan oil. I have loved everything
ordered except this. I like the feel on my skin, but the smell is terrible. I feel
like I need to take a bath after using. My husband remarked, " whatever you have on has
a terrible smell." He thought I had put something on for my arthritis.
I have used half of the jar already since I purchased it. I rub it on my face and neck religiously everynight. I have a smooth, soft, texture and radiance. I do not use anything else but this product. I have noticed such a difference in my skin. I am 55 and have noticed the fine lines are going away. I highly recommend this cream to anyone over 50. I have the citrus scent. It is more minty then citrus but the result is worth it.
The smell :(
I love the product and believe the wonderful things they say it can do for your skin. I have notice that it had helped to even my skin clarity. It is a bit oily but it is whipped oil so that I'm ok with but the scent I can not get past. The Jasmine is ok and I used that jar first now I'm on to the ginger and I can't stand it. I know it's suppose to be natural but it smells to earthy. It makes me feel like I need to take a bath all over again, it doesn't smell fresh or clean.
What happened to the Jasmine?
This is the second time I have bought this. Do not like the ginger but LOVED the first Jasmine. This second order smells completely different. Sort of a strong version of the green tea undertones in the honeysuckle one, which ruined the honeysuckle, by the way. It is terrible smelling.
I think someone spilled the wrong fragrance into this batch. I will try again in a few months when I assume it will be a new batch. If they cannot keep the scent the same there is no sense in buying it.
It would be nice to be able to order these separately so you only get the fragrance you want.
Scents are Awful!
I love the body butters, but the scents are terrible! Jasmine I will be able to tolerate, but the ginger is not at all flattering!
best moisturizer ever
This is a wonderful product. Without a doubt the best I have ever used and I have used numerous very high end department store moisturizers since I was a cosmetic buyer for several years. A little goes a long way it looks, feels and smells lovely. Please continue making it. This is my second shipment and I couldn't wait to get it even though I was only out for 2 days. I'm hooked!
