Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil
Due to the fact that I can have problem skin, I am constantly using Acne clearing products or spot treatments to help fight the seemingly never ending battle of bad skin. While these products work well, they tend to dry out my skin. So, I wanted to find a moisturizer that nourished my skin but didn't cause breakouts.
When I was first recommended to use Argan oil, I immediately said NO WAY. The word oil always freaked me out. I assumed that applying oil on my face meant that my skin would get "oilier" and therefore I'd breakout like crazy! I obviously had some misconceptions.
As usual, I did my research and read all of the rave reviews about Argan oil. I decided that maybe it wasn't so bad after all. I picked up the Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil from Sephora. The great thing with Sephora is that you have 30 days to try the product and can return it if it doesn't work out.
I incorporated the Argan oil into my morning routine and applied just about 3-4 drops of it before my regular moisturizer. I found that it did hydrate my skin significantly and made my skin feel extremely soft. However, I feel like applying it daily was a bit much for me as my skin started to look a bit shiny.
Overall, I am definitely a fan of the Argan oil, but with moderation. I now use it a couple times a week to give my skin some extra moisture. I either use it before bed or in the morning before applying makeup. It works well and some people even find that it clears up their breakouts (that was not the case for me, but it didn't cause any additional ones)
Pros: Moisturizing, Skin is left feeling very soft, Can clear up skin, doesn't cause breakouts, Price is reasonable for how long the product lasts
Cons: May make skin look shiny if too much is applied
