Kicking off my first comeback with a beauty review and this time it is the Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil. It is priced at 32$ for 180ml.
I picked this up in Sephora at Downtown Disney District in Anaheim about two weeks ago and have fallen madly in love with it ever since.
This is actually the first time i use oil as my cleanser and when I first tried it and was happy with the outcome, I asked myself why didnt I start sooner?
Ok since I was traveling at the time, I suddenly remembered that this oil could spill in my bag! But fret not you guys, the pump has open and closed system AND you dont have to pump out the oil to get the pump to close just like the Clinique’s cleanser I’ve been using! AMAZING! That alone got 2 stars from me!
The bottle doesn’t say what the ingredients are but I suppose I can google it and put it here for all of us.
From Sephora website:
6 oz/ 180 mL
-Organic Argan Oil: Repairs and replenishes skin cells.
-Grape Seed Oil: Aids in improving elasticity to the skin.
-Grapefruit Oil: Energizes and awakens the skin.
Hellanthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed oil, Polysorbate-80, Polysorbate-20, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Arganla Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Citrus Grandis (Pomelo Grapefruit) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Tocopherol (Antioxident), Sucralose.
Instruction on the bottle says:
“Rub 3 to 4 pumps into dry hands and apply evenly over dry face. Wet face and massage into a rich milk. Rinse thoroughly with water.”
Personally, 3 to 4 pumps is way too much for me. On days that I dont wear full make up (just eyeliner and Coloupop liquid lipstick), 1.5 pumps is enough for me and on days I wear full make up (mascara, foundation, concealer and the works), i use about 2 to 3 pumps. This is when you use your own judgement to use the product. And yes, this cleansing oil is really good at removing make up!
I love the simplicity of this product. Did you know that this cleansing oil cleans my face so good that I have been skipping toner and that alone saved 2 products. Toner and cotton pads!
I have tried to clean my face with toner after washing my face with the cleansing oil and guess what? I only had very little of dirt left. The fact that I save more money and time for skipping toner is just brilliant. 2 more stars for that! 😀
Since we have been racking up 4 stars, I’m going to give it one more star for being gentle on the skin. I have very sensitive skin and this never hurts my face. I dont feel any tightness after washing my face with this. ❤
5 stars you guys! Head on to Sephora and get yourself some and if I haven’t been convincing enough, get a sample and try it for yourself. I am going to leave a link to it here so you can check it out.
Thanks for reading guys! Have an awesome week!
