I have seen a lot of people talk about this product for a while! Everyone seems to be loving this Argan Oil by Josie Maran, so I thought I would also give it a try and see how it goes for me.
As it says on the packaging, this is full of antioxidants, vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It is supposed to nourish and protect the skin and it also says that is is non-irritating, non- allergenic and allergy tested as well.

The packaging has a dropper so it easy to get the amount you want and control the drops rather that pour it in your hand which can be very messy.
When I first tried this, the first things I noticed was that it was very light weight and thin in a way. I did not expect that at all. I thought it would be too oily and greasy feeling.
It applied smoothly and my face did not feel greasy just very well moisturised but I could feel the oil on my face. I did this at night before bed. So I waited for the oil to absorb into my skin before going to bed so I wouldn't get the oil all over my pillow.
So when it was 90% absorbed into my skin, I jumped in the bed and ready to go to sleep until my face started to get all itchy and it wasn't a normal itchy face. My whole face was itchy and very irritating and I couldn't ignore the itchiness. I got really scared so I jumped out of bed and washed my face immediately and when I was done washing it, the itchiness was completely gone!! It was a very weird experience. So that night I just did my normal night time skin care. I did this a several nights to see if my face would react to it the same and it did. Fortunately it did not cause me to breakout but the itchiness was very uncomfortable and I could not stand it.
I decided to return this item. It just didn't work for me as well as it did for other people which I heard they "love it and its the best" and all that. I was very disappointed with this product and I wish it had worked for me but oh well..
When returning this, the lady at Sephora suggested that I would keep it and use it on other parts of my body and hair but the way it reacted to my skin, it freaked me out and also, the main reason I bought it was for my face so when it didn't work, I had no reason to keep it.
