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?
