Today I am going to be reviewing the Josie Maran Argan Oil which I bought from Mecca Maxima during the holiday season. Now when it comes to my oily skin I always thought that I need to use products that will take away the oilyness on my face but I was wrong. To combat oilyness I started using this Oil as my moisturiser and I can say it has made such a big difference to my skin.
So it all started with a sample sachet I got with one of my Mecca order and I used it for a couple of nights. Instantly I found a difference to my skin when I woke up in the morning. So I read a bit more about the product and found that it can be used during the day as well. I bit the bullet and bought this bottle for $70, which is a steep price to pay but 4 months down the line I think it is worth every cent I paid. Now this is a multipurpose product that can be used from head to toe on the whole body. Be it to smooth your hair or to strengthen cuticles Josie Maran Argan Oil comes to the rescue. Made with 100% pure Argan Oil that is organically grown, cold pressed, cruelty free, paraben free and vegan.
Let's talk about the packaging first, it comes in a glass bottle with a dropper fixed to the screw top lid so you can easily use how much ever product you want. I think the packaging is a 10/10 for the consistency of the product. I also travelled with this to India and back and it is still in one piece.
The actual oil is clear, light, non sticky and very blendable. I like to use it every morning after cleansing I apply the Estée LauderAdvanced Night Repair Serum and follow with the Josie Maran Argan Oil, about 4-5 drops for my entire face and neck. I wait about 5 minutes and then apply my sunscreen and makeup.
Like I said before this bottle has lasted me 4 months and I have been using it every single morning to moisturise my face. My skin has never felt so good in the past 10 years, I have suffered from a lot of acne and occasional dry patches but after I started using the Argan Oil I rarely get a pimple. It could be because of the fact that my skin is now not over producing oil and thus not blocking pores.
Josie Maran also has a light version of this Oil but I have not tried that so cannot tell you the difference but as an oily skin girl I think the original version is quite light too. You can purchase the 50ml bottle for $70 or the 15ml for $23 from Mecca online or in Mecca Maxima Stores. I highly recommend this product as it has been a game changer for my skin.
