There’s nothing I hate more than being greasy or dirty, so for the longest time, I avoided trying Josie Maran’s Argan Oil, even though I’d heard nothing but great things about it. I was afraid that if I used it, it would make me feel oily or it wouldn’t soak in and I would have to shower again (or wind up looking like I hadn’t showered at all). Well I finally gave in and got a bottle of it to try… and I was so, so wrong. You guys, it’s fantastic! The older I get, the more I appreciate multi-purpose products and this is so that. You can use it in a myriad of different ways, including as your daily face moisturizer, in your hair to treat split ends, on your nails to soften your cuticles, on rough patches of skin on your body (like your elbows or knees), or even as a bath oil in the tub. I’ve done all of those now except used it in a bath and I’m kind of obsessed with it.
The product itself is a 100% pure Argan Oil that’s grown organically in Morocco. It’s cold pressed to make sure that it’s the best quality, highest-grade oil, and it comes in a recyclable glass bottle that was purchased from women’s cooperatives in Morocco to help support their social and economic welfare. Kinda cool, right? And I love that it dispenses the oil from a dropper – it makes it easy not to use too much at once and waste it. It’s just a super moisturizing product that absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any greasiness afterwards – perfect to use on the go or at night when it has even more time to sink in and do its job. I just love the way it leaves my skin looking. If only I’d tried it sooner!
