If you love the idea and benefits of Argan oil, but can't seem to use it without your skin breaking out, give this a shot! I loved JM's regular Argan oil, but found it definitely took thick for me in the summertime... as well as, if i used it more than 1 night, i would get random bumps. I took a chance and got the small, $14 bottle of the Light version and I have NO issues! I was very surprised. I use it nightly now over my Retin A in the winter, and 1-2 drops in the daytime if it's especially cold outside... and I'm naturally more combo/oily. This isn't exactly matte, as the product says, but it definitely is a lighter consistency and gives the same benefits as the regular version in regards to moisturization. I haven't even finished my first $14 bottle, and when I am near a sephora next week, will be purchasing a back up because it's a great product to have when your skin is just parched from the cold or sunburned. I just wish it wasn't so expensive and/or someone made a similar 'light' version (garden of wisdom, please??)
I LOVE LOVE my regular Josie Maran Argan Oil so I thought I'd try her light version. I bought the teeny small $14 bottle from Sephora. I think that's an insane price for the scant amount you receive. The smell is different than the regular oil, but to me they feel basically the same upon application. I noticed the light oil leaves my face feeling slightly tacky and takes much longer to absorb. I will not repurchase the light version, I'll just stick to the original. If it's not broke don't fix it, right???
I bought the small $14 bottle of this and I am in love with the results. I had to force myself to keep trying and not review immediately. I've never tried the regular version but this version is so good I don't think I would bother. I use this on my face at night and the results are amazing. My skin has never looked better in the morning. It looks plump and even and I swear its helping my slight acne scarring. I was so impressed I tried it on my hair and nails, but it made my hair feel greasy and seems like a waste on cuticles, so ill stick to my face. Ill have to buy a great big bottle of this once I've used up some more oils, as its definitely the best I've come across. It sinks in a lot faster than rosehip. Also it's odour free which is a bonus with something natural!
I got a sample of this and used it for a few nights. I do not see any difference between this product and other oils (Tarte Maracuja Oil, Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Oil, etc.). I do not think that is necessarily a bad thing. It moisturizes nicely but I have yet to see a face oil that does not leave your face a bit oily in the beginning. I would buy this because I only use face oils at night, but perhaps it is a bit much for during the day.
Okay, so I have been an avid user of the regular Argan Oil for about a year now and I did love it, but I wanted to try the light because I felt my skin starting to become a bit more oily from using the Argan Oil (we all have different skin!). The light works WONDERS! BEYOND amazing!!! I no longer wake up with the "shine" that the regular argan oil gave me. My skin feels so perfectly hydrated and it's so extremely light and feels so good. My skin has never been better just from switching to the lighter formula. Josie does it again!
I literally just got this in the mail today, and I already love it. I feel like it's okay to wear during the day since it's the "light" version. It doesn't feel super greasy on my skin, surprisingly. I may get the regular one for when it gets colder, because I don't know if this version will be moisturizing enough during the winter. But so far, I love this product!
I got this to try, so I got the $14 bottle. Now I have not tried the original but I have really loved the results I have gotten.
I'm currently using a deluxe sample that I received with a recent Sephora order. I usually use the regular JM argan oil for my face and mixed in my body lotion, which is perfect for the colder winter months, but not so much for the summer. Right now I'm using this on my face - it's odorless, thinner, but by no means matte in finish. You can still feel it on your face... it's still an oil after all. I find that I do need to use more drops of this as compared to the original argan oil, otherwise I don't notice anything different between the two formulations. I'm not sure that I'd repurchase though, because I'm interested in looking into other oils.
