I love oil. Sounds gross, I know, but my combination skin really takes to it. I tend to have dry patches on my cheeks, chin and forehead that get worse as the weather gets warmer.
Since I added oil to my cleansing routine, I found a counterintuitive way to keep breakouts at bay, but unfortunately this doesn’t work as well during the hot summer months.
Enter Josie Maran Organic Argan oil! This 100% pure, cold-pressed, Moroccan oil is lightweight, rich in anti-oxidants, essential fatty acids and other active substances that boast anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Research suggests its reputation as a healing “miracle” serum is well-deserved.
I couldn’t wait to try this product out and see if my experience would mirror the rave reviews. I should warn you up front about the cost, since that was my only ‘con’ for this product. The oil is $48 for a mere 1.7 oz, but don’t let the size fool you—a little goes a very long way.
The medicine dropper makes application precise, and after about a month of consistent use I hardly made a dent in the bottle.
Here's the info on Josie Maran Argan Oil:

What I love:
My skin drinks this up so well that I’ve been moved to replace my former loves, jojoba and coconut oil. Josie Maran Organic Argan oil absorbs easily, with no residue or greasy feel. It leaves my face with a nice healthy glow and it’s full of compounds that protect skin from the sun.
So far, I’ve used it as part of my facial regimen, to soothe dry cuticles, and as part of a deep conditioning treatment for natural hair- all with amazing results. Believe the hype, ladies. This stuff is the truth!
Pro: The ultimate moisturizing and skin-restoring product.
