JOSIE MARAN 100% PURE ARGAN OIL LIGHT




Ok, I haven't done a beauty post in a really long time {I know, I am sorry}, so today I wanted to share and review a new love in my life. Yes, it's the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light.

Some of you have probably tried this oil before and maybe some of you haven't. If you have tried this oil, I am sure you will agree that this stuff is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. 

About a month ago, I was looking for a new moisturizer for my face. I wanted to try something new and change things up a bit as I don't like to use a certain product for long periods of time. I was using this moisturizer which I love but since my face has been changing and getting a little more oily {even in the winter months} I wanted to try something that wasn't a "moisturizer." I have always heard great reviews on the Josie Maran Argan Oil and have always wanted to try it. Ok, so you are probably thinking, why would she use an oil on her face when her face is already oily? Yes, I thought that also and was a total sceptic. I went into my local Sephora and was talking to a beauty consultant about the Josie Maran Argan Oil and she was saying that she uses the regular Josie Maran Argan Oil and that she absolutely loves and swears by the product. She also has oily/combination skin.

I ended up getting a sample of the regular Josie Maran Argan Oil and used it for a few weeks. I did like it but I found that it was a little too heavy and I didn't like the feeling on my face as it was almost too greasy. I went back and got a sample of the "light" oil and this one was much better for my skin. The light oil is a lighter consistency and it also dries more matte on the face but also gives a little bit of a dewy look which I LOVE. I went back a week later and ended up getting the 0.5 oz {which is the smaller bottle to the 1.7 oz}.

I have been using the Josie Maran Argan Oil Light for over a month now and I can't believe the way my skin looks and feels. My face has never looked better and has never felt softer. Even when I am not wearing it on my face, my face still has a glow to it. This oil does not break me out, it actually helped clear up my acne as well as redness caused from past acne blemishes. This oil also reduces sebum production and is great for all skin tones, especially sensitive/ acne prone skin {which is me}. My skin also feels tighter and more hydrated.

How I apply it:

Morning:

After I have washed and toned my face, I add two drops to the entire face and whatever is left over on my fingers, I will then dap that around my eyes for extra hydration. I then follow my makeup routine afterwards. This oil is a great makeup base and when I apply my foundation {liquid or powder}, my face just looks flawless and dewy and so healthy looking. My boyfriend has also been commenting on how good my face has been looking as of late. Now, if your man notices and compliments you on your skin, then you know the product is a keeper.

Night:

After I have washed and toned my face, I put two drops on my index finger and I rub my two hands together and apply it all over my face. Once I have rubbed it all in, I then add one drop to my index finger again and I apply that around my eyes, focusing more on the outer corner of my eye {crows feet area} and a little under my eye and under my brow bone. Make sure that you don't get it too close to your lash line as it can get into your eyes.

Not only is this oil good for your face, it can also be used for your cuticles, hair, dry skin {hands, feet, elbows etc}. It's a multi purpose product and you definitely get your money's worth with this oil. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone and I am really glad that I found a product that actually doesn't make me breakout.

I hope you all found this post helpful and please let me know if you have any questions about the product or how I use it. Leave them in the comments below and I will definitely answer them as soon as I can..

Thank you so much for stopping by, xo!!

  4. Thanks for posting this! I've been thinking about getting the Josie Maran original Argan Oil for a little while now. I have combination/dry skin, but in the winter (especially right now) my skin is so, so dry. It's actually pretty disgusting. I think since my skin is so dry it could handle the original. I just really hope it doesn't break me out.

    1. My skin is a little dry also but only in certain areas of my face. You would probably like the regular Argan Oil then if your face is really dry. I swear by this stuff, you will see a big difference I am sure.

  10. I have only tried a sample of the regular version and I couldn't really tell if I liked it or not because it was just in the little packet! I have used facial oils before though and loved them so maybe when I run out of the one I have now I will give this a try!

  16. My skin gets very dry on my lower legs in the colder months and can be annoyingly itchy. I tried Argan oil last year and it soothed my skin and kept it moisturized. Buy Argan Oil for Skin

  17. Argan oil is great. MY wife is using this regularly.

  19. I love this stuff, a little goes a long way, I have combination skin with a super oily t-zone and rosacea. At night I use a few drops and press it into my skin and wake up with no oily sheen (I tend to have an oily t-zone in the morning if I use a regular oil-free moisturizer at night) plus my redness that I get with my rosacea is significantly reduced and my skin is super soft to the touch, great product!
