I have heard about Josie Maran’s cosmetics line for a few years now, but surprisingly never had a chance to try their products, until recently I started using their Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter, and I fell in love with this product from the very first day!
Why Argan Oil?
The major highlight of Josie Maran’s cosmetics is that she put Argan oil into most of her products. It is a 100% chemical-free oil that is originated from the Moroccan desserts, which is why it is also as known as “Moroccan oil”. This special ingredient is 100% pure, natural and 100% organic. It consists of high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids. Vitamin E and essential fatty acids such as Omega-6 and linoleic acid can help hydrate and soften your skin. It is so pure and can be used as a natural moisturizer itself. In addition, argan oil can help fight skin inflammation and assist to soothe the symptoms of skin ailments like eczema or rosacea.
The Formula of Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter
One of the biggest reasons to make me decide to give this product a try is because of its amazing ingredients. This intensive hydration body butter not only contains 100% pure argan oil, but also along with more than ten other super natural plant oils and extracts, including shea butter, coconut oil, aloe vera leaf juice, avocado oil, lime fruit extract, rosewood oil, apricot fruit extract, white tea extract, sunflower seed oil and extract. It is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalate and gluten.
You’ll be surprised, with all these oils infused into this body butter, the texture of the product is actually amazingly lightweight. It is extremely fast absorbing with super airy and silky texture. It really feels like you are feeding whipped cream to your body and it smells so delicious! I picked the sweet citrus scent, and this sweet fruity scent is very pleasant and not overpowering at all. Every time when I open the jar, I cannot resist smelling it for awhile before putting the product on.
There are several other scents available for you to choose, but it depends on where you shop from. I picked the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Sweet Citrus from Sephora, but they had only 4-5 scent choices there.
Below is a full list of all the scents Josie Maran offers, and I think the new Juicy Mango scent will be my next purchase – it already sounds too delicious to me!
- Juicy Mango (New!)
- Vanilla / Apricot
- Vanilla Peach
- Vanilla Bean
- Sweet Citrus
- Honeysuckle Vanilla
- Red Rooibos
- Cucumber Aloe
I really love this product a lot considering its ingredients, texture, scent and result. It is extremely moisturizing and the whipped consistency helps spread effortlessly. The product is not greasy at all and absorbing into your skin instantly. The best time to use this product would be after a warm shower, as it would be much easier to lock the moisture in the open pores and keep your skin stays fully hydrated.
My only complaint, if any complaint, would be the price: retailing for $35 for 8oz is for sure not cheap. However, given the very high quality of the ingredients plus a little goes a long way – you will find you need far less than other regular body lotion / body butter, I would say it is a luxurious pampering product for your skin and the result is well worth the price. It is truly an amazing product that does everything it claims to do.
