I was always skeptical to try out the different beauty oils on the market because I hate having a greasy face and hate having greasy hands. But I heard so much positive raves about the Josie Maran Argan Oil that I decided I want to try it out.
I actually bought this smaller size in late summer and used it here and there during my exchange trip. But once I got back to Vancouver, I’ve been using it almost daily as my moisturizer. So I feel like I can finally share with you my opinion.
How I use it:
I usually use half a dropper. I would put a little on my forehead, each cheek and my chin. Then I’d massage it in with my hands.
What I think:
I have pretty dry skin so I think this helped with dry patches but not more so than regular cream moisturizer. I actually didn’t really like it because it does not ABSORB into my skin! Everyone talks about how it’s not greasy at all, but I find it’s still oily even after 10-15 mins!! Am I using too much?
Not only would my face be oily, but my hands would still be oily too. Then I have to wash my hands or else my palms will get everything I touch oily.
Also, I expected it to smell good but there’s no smell what so ever.
Overall, I’m not a fan of this product. I hate how it doesn’t absorb and leaves me feeling oily. I know it’s natural and suppose to be good for you but I haven’t encountered any problems with my Dermalogica line so I probably will not try any more oils.
What are your thoughts on oils?
