Curtain Call: Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter
Hey guys! Today’s post is on something I’ve just finished up today. Here’s my take on the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter.
At 59 ml / 2 fl oz, I got this set of 2 at Sephora a little over a year ago. I didn’t get to use it until recently.
The website describes this item with the following:
“It’s not heavy, it’s my butter—silky, intensely hydrating body butter that smells subtly yum and gives sweet relief to the driest skin. Packed with luscious oils and whipped to a feather-light texture, it sinks in instantly for velvety soft skin to create an argan oil infused body lotion in a flash. Spread the love and feel the difference.
Why I love it: No matter how many hot baths or red-eye flights I take, this stuff has my back and my front, and everywhere else. It’s hard-core enough to quench parched elbows and heels, but never greasy or sticky. And the two fresh, natural scents, vanilla apricot or sweet citrus, lightly linger on my skin like an all-day aromatherapy infusion.
What’s in it: No wonder it feels so good. My Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter is a powerhouse of more than ten plant oils and extracts, plus the star of the show, 100% Pure Argan Oil, with its restorative and antioxidant properties.
What’s not in it: I dont clutter my butter with ingredients that are toxic, or unethically tested. That means no parabens or harsh artificial fragrances. And no guinea pigs, unless you count my friends and family.”
Verdict? I love it. It is everything I have come to more or less expect from a good body butter. It is definitely light and absorbs really nice into the skin. What I will say that this isn’t a non-greasy formula. It’s light — I’ll give it that — but it has the lightest touch of greasiness that comes with oil-based body butters. It’s almost not noticeable but it’s there. And when compared to other oil-based body butters — yes, I’d say it’s not greasy at all. It lasts just as long as I expected from these little tubs — more than I can say for the Nspa Coconut Body Butter I’ve reviewed recently. Between Sweet Citrus and Vanilla Apricot, I prefer Sweet Citrus. I feel that the freshness in this scent is pleasant and it’s more true to the name of the scent than Vanilla Apricot.
At $35 for 240 ml / 8 oz, this product is available on their website. Products from this brand is also carried by other retailers such as Sephora.
