Hey guys! Hope you all had an amazing weekend. I've been miserably sick and no amount of Vitamin C or meds are helping :( BUT I am hangin' in there. It is just horrible weather and everyone around us is sick, so were bound to catch it at some point or another unfortunately. I wanted to post about a product most people have heard of but don't really know about. Argan oil: What is it? What does it do? Who can use it? I went into Sephora a few weeks ago and part of the VIP 500 points was the Josie Maran Argan Essentials. It was a cute little package with face wipes, cleansing oil, Argan oil and a lip balm. I loved all the products she had and had also heard about it from an employee there who praises natural products. I started researching Argan Oil and they refer to it as the "Golden Oil" . The info on it almost seems unreal: heals acne, takes away pigmentation, anti-oxidant, anti-aging, wrinkle-smoothing, burn-healing and it is also moisturizing for hair and skin. Sounds too good to be true huh? I've been using it everyday as an evening regimen and my skin feels so soft and nice! Because I am natually oily, I opt out of it in the mornings and would rather the oil really absorb into my skin at nights. Funny though, although it is an oil, it does not leave a greasy residue but feels almost like a dry oil. I don't see results for "wrinkles" yet lol but I do have to use it for a few more weeks to see visible results. Josie Maran is sold at Sephora but other brands carry it too at organic stores like Whole Foods. Don't go for the cheap ones because those may be diluted although they say 100% Argan. A little bit does go a long way and I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you all to use it for so many beneficial reasons. Tell me your thoughts on it!
