This stuff is smaller and not as effective as the ones you can find on the vitamin aisle of your grocery store.... dont waste your time.
I use this HEAD TO TOE...Literally..... love love love!! Use it as my AM/PM moisturizer! for my hair/body/nails/lips... love!!!! I suffered from terrible acne since i was a teen and this stuff has literally turned my skin around... I promise you guys please try it if you are not sure. I was scared to do it and I am so glad I took the chance. I only use Josie Maran products on my skin now. i cleanse with her argan oil cleasner, few times a week i add some of her argan oil exfoliator with some of the cleanser... then i follow up with the argan oil. I do add a drop of lavender oil in the argan oil to help kick any blemishes i might feel coming up. is my skin 100% amazing? no...but who's is? If i had to rate my skin before using JMC products a year ago I'd give it a 4/10... now? 8/10. So...just my personal experience :)
Love this stuff... Use it under my eyes and on top as well. It instantly brightens up your tired eyes. I am fair skinned so it looks good and natural on me. When I do use my Dr. Dennis Gross glow pads on my face it does look a little light to be natural but I just add a little bit of the warmth by BE in it to make it darker. Great product. But it does burn and irritate my eyes if I rub.... kinda sucks....only reason it gets 4 lippies.

I have such a love/hate relationship with this stuff. I get dry patches sometimes around my nose and eyebrows. I would NEVER use this stuff on my entire face.... because its just honestly too oily for me. It does work well on the dry patches and it USED to be the only thing that would somewhat take care of the dry patches without making me look like a face full of oil. So yes I keep it on hand for little spots that need extra moisture. But now I just use Vitamin E oil.... and its AMAZING. :) I will probably have a jar of this stuff on hand still cos it is great for little dry patches.
I am a chapstick/lip balm junkie...I keep my lips moisturized and in great shape. So when I see a new product I always grab it. This one .... is not so great. It's nothing special....I never REACH for it but if I grab it I will use it sometimes but most of the time I put it back and reach for another lol...

Bronzers -Josie Maran Cosmetics - Bronzing Argan Oil
Happythenjaded 5/30/2012 9:33:00 PM
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 applied....it 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!! :(

My skin is so different from most people because I know that this is a lot of peoples HG cleanser and for me it just dried me out....It didnt feel healthy or clean to me at all...and it smells like a cheap Avon brand or something.....

Got this set on Ebay. I really do like the scent of them and the moisture is great. I wish the bronzing one was 'darker' as it really isnt even a bronzer its more like a glittery version of the regular oil. BUT they make your skin look healthy and radiant so. I dont use them on my face, just my arms. But overall they are great....I dont know if I'd spend $30 on them again but-- if I found them on sale I would buy them. Pretty cool products.
Got rid of the blemishes but in return I got a chapped, red, and raw face ugh!!! NEVER AGAIN!!
Okay so I bought this thinking it was going to change my life like it has for so many others...WRONG..... It literally...TORE up my face....I mean... it took me forever to get my face healed from this thing. :(

Okay first of all AMAZING. Only reason it gets 4 and not 5 is because it does tend to make my face red and a little sensitive after I use it (for an hour or so?) but thats the only downside!! I have ordered the glow pads and will review thats soon!! GREAT product that actually works!! BTW-- my skin is SUPER sensitive and I have the EXTRA strength (i ordered the glow facial pads and the regular ones) I think these extra str. are a little too strong for my skin but the results are amazing!!!
Wow-- Been using for a few weeks and my sometimes super dry/ sometimes super oily skin has really BALANCED out!! It is very pricey ($40 for ONE bar or $76 for THREE) but so worth it!!! I just cut off a little cube and use the same quarter sized cube through out the week twice a day...really lasts if you keep it OUT of the water and just use it sparingly (lathers up so well you only need a little!!!). It has really faded out old acne marks like no other !!! After I use the bar (as my cleanser) I follow with a dab of Josie Maran argan oil on the marks and then put my normal moisturizer on (Boots No.7 redness gel? whatever its called!). I have also been using the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta peel pads twice a week and OMG!!! My skin looks and feels amazingg!!! I also use a raw/organic honey as a mask a few nights a week-- Try this combo and see if it helps your skin/complection!! Works for me and I have been searching for years lol!! :)
Great for lips, hands, face, etc. My nose area gets really dry around the nostrils and also get dry patch between my eyebrows so I use this at night and it really works..so cheap too!! DOES NOT CLOG!!! Promise!! If your face is really dry then wash it with an aloe based cleanser (Body Shop!!) and then leave it damp and apply Vaseline Petroleum Jelly to your damp face as a mask and leave it for a few hours....!! :)
