I love using cleansing oil daily even if I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis. A good facial massage never hurts! I was pretty happy with my organic Olive/ Sweet Almond Oil for the purpose but ever since I am seeing these exotic oil combinations in a single handy bottles couldn’t resist myself and jumped into the bandwagon. I have been trying various cleansing oils and balms for the matter and today will be sharing my views on famous Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil. Her whole product range is based on Argan Oil.
The Josie Maran Argan Cleansing oil comes in a huge 180ml transparent plastic bottle with pump dispenser. Super convenient ,user friendly- no fuss packaging. The pump dispenses just the right amount of product without any spillage or wastage. The texture of the oil is quiet thick & gooey which sadly puts me off.I couldn’t go past the texture initially as it is very viscous and working with it requires effort. One needs to spread this on dry skin and massage where it feels slightly sticky . On brighter side it dissolves every single speck of makeup without drying out the skin. Infact my skin feels very smooth after washing it off. Thankfully it gets washed off easily despite of the thick texture. I have read reviews of this not removing eye makeup that efficiently, and I agree to that little bit. I do not wear eyemakeup daily (eyeshadows) but then a stroke of liner/kohl along with mascara. Though I didn’t faced any issues for removing off eyeliner/kohl, this definitely didn’t take out my mascara properly and I had to go back to my Almond Oil for the job. I don’t wear waterproof mascara daily but for regular mascara too I had to rub quiet a bit! It has got a citrus-y fragrance and tastes slightly bitter.If you are sensitive to smells I would suggest testing it before as the smell is quiet bold here.
Overall I am on fence with this one. I love how it makes my skin feel but the formula puts me off abit and the fact that it ‘s not that good with removing my mascara forces me to look towards other options which does the job equally well with much easier to work with formula.
