After a brief hiatus (during which I worked the retail pre-holiday rush — it was cray, but that’s another story), we’re now back to our regularly-scheduled programming. Over the next two weeks, posts will come about every other day, just because I don’t have access to my regular equipment and backdrops.
Anyhoo, you may recognize the Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light* from my DIY Lavender Curl Refreshing Spray post. I got it as a 100 point perk because I’m a Sephora VIB. I have to say, this is one of the better perks I’ve gotten from this program.
Anyhow, everybody and their cat knows that argan oil is a bit of a hot ingredient when it comes to skin and hair care these days. You find it in skin and body products, hair products, lip balms, cuticle oils, and even makeup. Josie Maran has made herself synonymous with it, along with MoroccanOil. I love MoroccanOil for my hair, but I’m a bit hesitant to put such a fragrant oil on my skin (I have a thing about scents in skincare products — don’t judge). The argan light is supposed to be a lighter version of argan oil that is perfect for oilier or combination skin and for very thin or fine hair. I got it for my skin, and I’ve tried it on my hair and it’s lovely! What I love about argan oil — especially this light one — is that it sinks right in and doesn’t leave my skin greasy.
Now, the full size of this is in the $50 range, so I don’t know if I’d go out and buy it right away once this one is done. I might price out regular, non-Josie-Maran pure argan oil at the health food store, because I’ve a suspicion that when it comes to Josie’s, you’re paying for the name and prestige more than the product itself.
Although I have to say, overpriced or not, the little pipette/eyedropper is awesome and I’ll probably keep the bottle to refill with whatever argan oil I do buy. It makes me feel like a scientist.
