Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil is a Rip-off

Josie-Maran-100-Percent-Pure-Argan-Oil

This oil is a top seller at Sephora. Regrettably, I have bought it a couple of times from there in the past not knowing what I know now.

It has so many benefits and it is so versitile, it’s hard to resist.  You can use it anywhere. On your face, on your hair and on your nails. Today, we will explore it’s benefits and the “an arm and a leg” price.

Some benefits of Argan Oil include:

  • The Vitamin A, E, anti-oxidents, and Omega-6 fatty acids
  • It absorbs easily to the skin and does not leave a residue
  • Treating skin infections, bug bites and rashes
  • Reducing sebum levels for acne sufferers
  • Preventing stretch marks by improving elasticity of the skin
  • Soothing razor bumps and burns

If you’re still reading this, you might be one of those intelligent consumers who are curious about argan oil benefits, but unsure if it is worth the investment. What Argan oil does for your skin is great. However Josie Maran’s Argan Oil is such a rip off! I was furious when I found out how over priced her products are compared to other leading brands out there that sell the exact same stuff. All Josie Maran’s oil is – is just a name slapped onto good ol’ Argan Oil. Continue reading “Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil is a Rip-off”

For example the  Clinique’s second step toner was such a big disappointment – it made me breakout bad.  I was told it’s alcohol free and it still irritated my skin.

Then I’d go back on the hunt for a toner just to be disappointed again. I could even remember a time about me complaining to the Sales Representative from Dior about the Cliniques toner (I didn’t have a blog at the time and I just needed someone to vent to), He responded telling me that Clinique sucks (of course he’s going to say that) and that their toner could be used as nail polish remover because of the acetone in it. (I had to google it to see if that were true and to my dismay he was right!). That being said, they have reformulated their toner and have removed the acetone.

Today’s review will be on this YSL primer.  First and foremost I’ll start off with a little background about my skin.  I have dry, dehydrated looking skin most of the time. Which sucks and sometimes even makes the best make up out there look unpleasant. So I know besides a great morning and night skin regimen – I need a really good primer for my skin  Continue reading “YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer”
