Good morning, dear readers! :D
I wanted to start branching out with the types of blog posts I have, so I will be posting about other cosmetics as well as nail polishes. :)
Josie Maran Argan Oil:
(Price at Sephora:
0.5 oz - $18 CAN
1.7 oz - $58 CAN
4.0 oz - $125 CAN)
(Ingredients: 100% Organic and Natural Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil.)
I love this stuff!!! :D I only use a few drops on my face and neck in the morning and evening, after I have done my other face care. I find it helps seal the moisture in, and it gives me incredibly smooth skin. It helps with my dryness issues and evening out my skin tone, while being extremely gentle and non-irritating. You can use it by itself, and it will help moisturise wherever you put it.
For those who have combination or oily skin, fret not!! This oil acts as a lubricant to your skin, so instead of making your skin produce more sebum by drying it out, it 'tricks' the skin into thinking it has enough so it doesn't produce extra. An oil that helps with oil problems...go figure! But it really does work. :D I have dry-combination skin and I adore this product! :)
Argan oil hails from the land of Morocco, as the argan tree only grows in that region. (You can read more about argan trees, oil and the extraction process here. It is quite interesting!! :D)
The oil can be used all over your body, including your hair (to add shine, moisturise and minimize frizziness). But do know that you should use only a small amount if you add it to your hair; a little goes a long way.
I enjoy the fact that this is an amazing organic product with only one ingredient, and that it can be used for so many things.
This is an expensive luxury product (when purchased from this brand), but a little goes a very long way. I love the packaging that Josie Maran's products have, and the fact that the golden oil is housed in a dark bottle (to protect the contents from light) with a dropper. (One thing; argan oil is very thin so it will drip out of the dropper on its own accord, so be careful when you use it so that you don't spill it.)
I have also used argan oil from New Directions Aromatics, and I found it worked just as well for a much cheaper price. There was more of an earthy scent to this one, but you really can't complain considering the value. You can get organic argan oil at these prices:
3.3 oz - $14.17 CAN
16 oz - $49.61 CAN
33.8 oz - $95.40 CAN
135.26 oz - $360.80 CAN
676.3 oz - $1653.67 CAN
I used up my last order from NDA, as I got the 'sample' of 3.3 oz a while ago, and shared it with a friend. The bottle I got was also dark glass, but did not come with a dropper, so I prefer the packaging from Josie Maran. However, at this price I may just go back to NDA argan oil and put it in the Josie Maran bottle. :D
I am horrible when it comes to packaging!!! I love luxe bottles and jars, teensy-spoons that come with expensive creams and all those luxury trappings. The problem is I don't have the income to support that lifestyle. Sigh!! Silly me! XD
Anyhoo, if you haven't tried it before, I highly suggest giving argan oil a go. It really is a wonder product, and I am glad to have it in my skincare regimen again. :)
Have a lovely day! :D
