So I finally took the plunge! I had been on the fence about ordering argan oil period, for obvious reasons (OIL!) but thankfully there were some reviews on QVC and Sephora to go by plus Josie Maran is just so darn convincing all on her own! I had read that the Argan Oil Light was the one to order if you have an oily visage or if you have a T-Zone like I do. And that is what I’m recommending now, as well. When Josie says “light” she means it. I use 4 drops in the morning after I’ve applied my Estee Lauder moisturizer since it has SPF which I will not leave the house without it on my face! Four drops is enough to cover my whole face and I don’t look like an oil slick and my makeup (Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup) stays put. The Argan Oil doesn’t have any SPF in it; as well it shouldn’t, since its pure Argan Oil and adding anything to it would no longer make it “pure”, duh! At night I use 4 drops as well and I pat it on just the way Josie shows you to when she’s on QVC and I pat lightly when I’m going around my eye area. Yes, you can use this around your eye area and it isn’t going to irritate them at all, well at least on me it didn’t and I also where contacts. Thanks to the polar vortex there have been days when I’ve added a 5th drop of oil around my lip area, I also started getting a chapped/eczema type of thing going around my neck and I used the oil in combination with St. Ives lotion and it cleared it right up. I’ve been using the Argan Oil Light for a little over two weeks now and I love it! My face doesn’t look as red as before, it’s so much softer and for some reason, and this may not be the case for everyone, but my eyebrows are fuller. I haven’t been using it for the full four weeks, which seems to be the magic number to really see a change in your skin i.e. the fine lines I know are there, but everyone says aren’t; so I will update once I’ve hit that mark especially now that I’ve added the regular Argan Oil to my beauty regimen (did I really just say that?). I love this oil so much that I ordered the regular Argan Oil to use at night. I’ve only been using the regular Argan oil for a few days now, but I can feel the difference between the regular and the light. I usually splash water on my face in the morning and since using the regular Argan oil my face feels softer and smoother.
If you’re considering give Josie’s Argan Oil a try here’s my recommendations. If you just want to try the oil either the regular or the light go to Josie’s website and order there. You can order the regular here and the light here. Some of the reasons why is Josie doesn’t use a huge box to send you your product, it’s packaged well and everything is recyclable. She also offers free shipping on orders over $25 and who doesn’t love free shipping?!? And you may find a surprise or two with your shipment as well. 😉 And there are also some products like her new moisturizer that are exclusive to her site, I really want to try this product out, but since I just bought a new Estee Lauder moisturizer it might be awhile. Then there are products exclusive to QVC, a very dangerous place for me, like this Argan Matchmaker Blush and Argan Oil Collection that I did order the other day when QVC was having an Easy Pay day. I’ve already received the Argan Oil Collection so I’ll be adding more reviews as I use those products.
If you’re still wobbling about whether to give Josie’s Argan Oil a try, I say go for it! If the $48, 1.7 oz. is too much for you there’s a smaller size here for $16 and it also comes in light. AND if that doesn’t entice you enough then just wait until the 28th of March she has a full hour on QVC from 12-1 am and if you’re like me then you know that could possibly mean a Today’s Special Value! If you decide to go for it let me know what you think and if you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments and I’ll try to answer them as soon as I can.
