Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil
I received this sample of Josie Maran's Argan Cleansing Oil ($32/6oz) in a Sephora Beauty Insider 500-point gift. I've been lukewarm about my experience with Josie Maran products, partly because they market themselves as being natural but some of their products contain well-know non-natural ingredients, like silicones. This product does contain all-natural ingredients, but I can't say I am a fan. To be fair, I didn't really give it a fighting chance. I know that many people claim oil cleansers work wonders for blemish-prone skin, but this product feels so thick and viscous...I just never got up to guts to try it. I have been using it as a body oil after showering and that works for me. It contains numerous natural oils including argan oil (duh!), safflower oil, grapeseed oil, olive oil, and sweet almond oil. It also includes grapefruit peel oil, which scents the product.
I love the smell of grapefruit, so this stuff has me there, but otherwise I think it was a miss for me. Has anyone used this? Care to share your experiences?
