This is like that one MIRACLE product that changed my skin completely over night!!! Well, not over night…but definitely over a period of 2 weeks, I could notice great changes in my skin.

It all started last year in winter. I started using this particular product on my face as a night time moisturizer.

Skin Type : Dry and leaves patchy dry spots in winters.

Usage: PM (once during night time)

Color: Colorless

Texture: Light weight, easy to spread n easily absorbed by the skin.

Application: Just few drops (3-4 drops) were enough to cover my entire face n neck.

Feel on skin: It is very light weight and does not feels heavy on skin. Does not leaves the skin greasy at all. It did not clog my pores nor there were any ugly bumps. I use it only at night, but have tried using it under my make up. If you intend to do so, I would suggest using just 2 drops and not more.

Difference in Skin: I noticed that it made my skin very smooth and soft. There were absolutely no dry patches at all. Also over a period of time, it made my skin very glowy, healthy, supple and just great from within.
The facial skin appears very nourished and makes me look younger than I actually am...
I have many people asking me the secret of my good skin. This MAY have helped with lightening the mild Pigmentation on my skin, but I am not sure, because I have been using other serum in conjugation.

It is definitely worth giving a try. A small bottle costs around $15 and it will last for more than 6 weeks if used once a day religiously. Maybe even more depending upon the quantity used.

Argan Oil from different Brand: I have seen Whole Foods carrying argan Oil as well. I have not tried them. I just thought it would be great idea to try a known brand over totally unknown one.

I don’t use this at all in summer. I start the usage from Fall and continue till Spring. This is my Second year using the Argan Oil and I have yet to get a single dry patch on my face.

Try it and do let me know in the comment section if it worked or not. This sure is a Holy Grail product for me. Also do ask me any questions if you have, because I know I am not a good review writer and at times it may be complicated for me to tell what I actually want to.


  1. Hi dear
    so sorry i cannot speak english well, but i need your help about josie maran argan oil.

    i had bouhg josie maran argan oil from ebay, item is full size..
    In item's description seller says; item is sealed..
    But when i get i saw item not sealed and im so worry if item is fake or filled different and cheap vegetable oil original glass bottle..

    Then i feeling little nutty and margarinish (margarine ) scent

    i will visit your website for your reply
    many many thanks
    Warm wishes

    1. hello Skoc,

      The oil mentioned above does not smells at all. No perfume smell, no nutty smell. No smell at all.
      Also it is COLORLESS...No color.

      I have not tried any other brand, so I don't know if the product actually has any color or smell. Josie Maran is a reputed brand, so I assume it is what it says.

      Also, if your bottle is open, try to return it. Maybe the oil must have gone rancid, hence the color alteration and smell.

      At last, if you are looking for a nourishing oil for your skin, I would suggest trying some aromatherapy blends available in your own country. Good old Light Olive Oil, Jojoba oil, Grapeseed oil, Apricot oil are few oils that are used on skin as well.
      PLease do a patch test or consult a aromatherapist.

      Good Luck

      Ebay has loads of please beware. Hope this helps.

  3. where can i get Josie Maran Argan Oil and how much is it?

  4. Wher can i get Josie Maran Argan Oil and how much does it usually cost?

  5. @Riza Dyane Gonzaga... We can easily get Argan Oil here in USA at any Sephora or Whole Foods. Josie Maran Brand can be found on QVC as well. Usually 50 ml bottle costs around 35-50 USD depending on the brand,.

    Hope this helps..Thanks for stopping by... :)

  6. If anyone can ask any skin specialist or dermatologist that what is the most effective product for human’s beauty? They all told you like same answer and the answer is Argan oil. This oil comes from origin Argan tree which only comes from Morocco.
