Argan oil--an extract from the kernels of the argan tree--is known in Morocco as “liquid gold” for its healing, conditioning and anti-aging properties. “There are few-to-no formal studies proving a measurable effect of argan oil on skin health,” says Dr. Jessica Krant, a NYC-based dermatologist. “However, the promise is great--it contains vitamin E, many essential fatty acids, and other antioxidants.”
This week, we're conducting our own “study": 8 FOFs will put Josie Maran Argan Balm
(retail value: $42) to the test. The balm is made of shea butter infused with Argan oil, and“creates a protective barrier to seal in hydration and leaves the skin softer and more supple,” according to the Josie Maran website
. The company claims distressed skin will be relieved “instantly,” and also suggest using it on unruly cuticles, dry feet and frizzy hair.
We want you to tell us: Is this balm a bomb...or a blessing?
