I've heard great things about Argan Oil so one day at Sephora I decided to buy the small bottle to try it out. I have oily skin, so I'm a bit concerned about putting this on my face, especially since I have a TON of blackheads and heard this can be very pore unfriendly. BUT - I LOVE this as a hair product. I have thick wavy hair that is pretty brittle and dry from daily use of heat products and the occasional coloring. After getting out of the shower and towel drying my hair, I put 3 drops on my fingers and work the oil just through the ends of my hair and than style as normal (still use other products). This has kept my ends feeling amazingly soft and I have fewer fly aways as well. I really do love this for hair. I subtracted 2 lippies for cost though. If I used it for other stuff like my face, than maybe it'd be better, but just for hair, it is expansive. It does seem to last a long time - even though I spilled almost half when I first got it :( it's been 2+ months and I still have a good 3rd of the bottle left.
An excellent, odorless argan oil! This is a top-of-the-line quality argan oil and it works wonderfully on the ends of my hair and applied to my face (only twice a week, as this is very rich).
I'll be looking around for a less expensive brand though. I cannot afford the Josie Maran one, no matter how terrific the product is.
Argan oil is great, but this one from Josie Maran is severely over-priced! You can buy 100% pure, organic argan oil from Garden of Wisdom, 1oz for only $8 (Josie's is around $45 for 1.7 oz).
I used to buy a lot of skin care products from them and they sell tons of different natural oils and raw ingredients. They're high quality at low prices, fast shipping and great customer service. I just hate to see people pay so much for the same exact thing just because it's a fancy name brand sold in Sephora.
I swore I would not be gouged by JM with this product but needed a little extra to avoid shipping on a Sephora order so I bought the small bottle to give it a try. I have started experimenting with oils and was having pretty good luck with the few I tried so was hopeful. I am horrible acne prone so I totally avoided my chin and jawline when I first started using this. I just used it around my eyes and top of the cheeks. Then I ventured to the forehead. When that all went well I began patting it all over. Worked like a charm! NO breakouts of any kind! I put three drops on damp fingertips then pat under my eyes then pat the rest all over my damp face and neck morning and night. I have smooth, plump, happy skin!! I won't buy JM again because of the outrageous price but will repurchase from GOW most likely.
This oil didn't work well for me. I tried it in my hair and it weighed it down and made it greasy. I loved it on my skin the first few days, but it ended up breaking me out horribly. The only thing I use it for now are my cuticles. I won't be re-purchasing.
Aww man, I really wanted this to work, but it didnt. On first contact, it absorbed well into my skin without any greasy feeling (and I have combo/oily skin). And I noticed that it did help with sebum regulation throughout the day as it states. Those were the reasons I liked it and gave it two lippies. BUT, after two days of using it, i started to get zits on my chin and cheeks one by one until my face was full of them :( Im just one of the unfortunate people out there that cant use argan oil. Im sure this works excellent for some as I can see by the reviews. Id suggest giving this a shot though.
Hands down, the best splurge I have made in a long time. For reference I have dry sensitive acne prone skin. My skin tone is also uneven:( I ordered this from QVC. It also came with a creme color stick(which is also very nice). Argon oil is something I will never be without. My skin had been breaking out and I think it was all the chemical ingredients in my makeup and skin care. But since trying more natural ingredients it has gotten a lot better. I was using unrefined shea butter which helped a lot with clearing up my acne and red spots, but my skin needed more moisture. The argon oil is so moisturizing, and my skin literally has been soaking it up! I also use as a hair serum, and my hair is sooo soft and doesn't get frizzy underneath anymore. This has replaced my Kenra serum. I also use it on my kids for scrapes and diaper rash. I have read that this can be pore clogging, but I haven't had a problem, and that's saying a lot. My skin almost hates everything. I think everyone should go out and buy! Thanks Josie:)
I have been looking for an organic moisturizer that wouldn't leave my face feeling greasy at night. This stuff really works. It makes my face have a dewy glow without the oily residue. I use it in the morning under an spf and at night before bed. I used to have red patches on my forehead and now they've disappeared. This doesn't make me break out which I love bc I have acne-prone skin. Although a bit pricey for such a small bottle, I would buy this stuff again. Thanks Josie!
I can not believe how amazing this Argan Oil is. Mind you, i've been using this product for 3 DAYS!! I see a complete turn around in my skin. It's blowing my mind.
I use it twice a day and my skin is loving it. I'm seeing a reduction in redness and when i wake up in the morning after having it settle and soothe my skin all night long, i'm not greasy or dirty looking. i look glowy and well rested.
I put it on under my foundation and i swear, it makes my make up look more natural and even.
This product is changing my face daily, and i am so grateful.
The ONLY downside is the price, BUT at the same time i know i'm paying for quality. It's 100% organic and it's not like you need to use a lot anyways. just a couple of drops on each cheek and on any other dry areas and that's it! I've also noticed, it's making my fingernails grow a lot faster.
I think i'm going to be a life long fan and i couldn't be more happier!
I use this on my hair and skin on a daily basis. I tend to get very dry patches on my face and hairline which my dermatologist prescribed cream barely helped. Argan Oil clears it up a lot faster. I use it as a moisturizer all over my face because it absorbs quickly and feels so light. I understand that there there are cheaper brands of argan oil, but this is very pure and organic which means something to me. I also use it on my toddler. I will continue to pay the price for it.
