Pros: Gives a BEAUTIFUL golden glow to my skin ( I'm NC50 in MAC ) so this product brightens up my skin for those no makeup days, Smallest amount is needed, Moisturises skin, Doesn't break me out ( I have extremely oily skin ), Bottle will last for a while ( unless I decide to use it for my body, which I will because it's just that beautiful ), The smell doesn't bother me, it's an oil so I don't expect it to smell like a bouquet of flowers, Looks beautiful on every skintone, Overall I like this product Cons: Price for the amount of product you get ( especially if being used on the body ), A bit messy as far as the product & it's packaging, Does take some time to absorb into my skin when using on the face ( guessing because of my oily skin, it absorbs well when I use it on my body which is dry )

I am such a product junkie and this oil is on the must keep list! I have been using the bronzing oil for the last 6 months and absolutely love it!!! In the winter, I apply this directly to my decollete and legs for the formal holiday and winter parties to give a glow, but in the last 3 months I've been adding a drop of it to my winter (lighter) foundation. I initially thought it would be a horrible idea since the oil would make my face look greasy and shiny from the shimmer, but this doesn't do it at all! In fact, it gives me a nice healthy glow, and absorbs right into my skin without making it look slick and feel heavy.

I've also have been trying to use products that are good for my skin, with less chemicals, parabens, petroleum, and this one fits the bill! Love it!

It is nicely bronzing, but it does come off on your clothes, even hours later. So you're better off using her argan oil on your skin to moisturize without the bronzer part, unless you plan to just stand for hours at a cocktail party or something where what you've bronzed doesn't come in contact with much.

I got a deluxe sample of this in a swap, and thought i'd give it a try on my legs (don't think argan oil would agree with my combo/acne-prone face). It smells a little strange, like peanuts and olive oil or somethig. It's a little sticky once applied, but adds a nice slight healthy glow to the skin. It feels a little heavy, even for my legs, so I can't imagine this used on the face. Maybe if you have very dry skin? It also leaves a little tacky feeling, so I wouldn't wear this with any clothes you cherish, in case it gets on it...

I have been wanting to try this for awhile now....And MAN is this stuff hard to come by!! It's always sold out on Sephora, QVC, and Josie's site. But LUCKILY after weeks of being sold out it became available on Josie's site and then the next day on Sephora's site!! So I got it !! I had ordered a set on Sephora of Josies (Beautifuly Bronzed or something??) just for this oil the day before I ordered the 1.7 oz bottle of the Bronzing oil. I got them both in the mail the same day and wow....the .50 oz that came in the set STINKS and has NO color when does give a nice healthy shine to the skin...but the 1.7 oz bottle smells HEAVENLY !! (think grapefruit/lemon/orange...citrusy!) and it gives a lovely tint and shine!! Maybe the sample size is a dud or something??? DO NOT order this if you are looking for a BRONZER though as it gives very little color...mostly just a GLOW similar to the original Josie Argan oil, but with a sliiiiiiiiiiiiight (very very slight) 'tint' and a little more shimmer. It's great for guys or girls!! Makes the skin look alive and healthy!! Love it !! Try it !! IF YOU CAN FIND IT!! But better hurry cos its even more impossible to find after summer!! :(
