{Tested} Josie Maran Argan Balm

.

——————————————————————————————————————————————

Argan oil, produced from the kernels of the Moroccan argan tree, has been called “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. So, we decided to conduct our own “study.” Seven FOFs put Josie Maran’s Argan Balm (retail value: $42) to the test.  The balm is made of shea butter infused with Argan oil and “leaves the skin softer and more supple” according to the company.

Is this balm–a bomb or a blessing? Read on to see what our testers thought.

WILMA LONGMAN – Brush Prairie, WA

Was this product easy to use?
Very easy. It’s temperature-sensitive: when cold, it’s a wax-like consistency, when warm, it’s buttery and soft. It melts deliciously into the skin as soon as it’s applied.

Did you see a difference in your skin? Was your skin softer and less dry?
Yes. I was especially impressed with the difference the balm made on my cuticles. As a pharmacist, I wash my hands many times a day, and my cuticles were a mess. When I applied the balm before work, it protected my hands all day.

Did it provide relief for your distressed skin?
Yes–it seems to have healing properties. I had a couple small cuts on my hands during the testing time, and the balm seemed to help them heal more quickly.

Is it important to you that this product is made with all natural ingredients and no harsh toxins?
Yes. Chemicals in products can be absorbed through the skin.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
When it is empty, I am definitely going to buy another tin of Argan Balm. It is worth the $42 price tag.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Yes, absolutely! I even caught my FOF husband sneaking some balm for his rough hands.

RHONDA BYER – Los Angeles, CA

Was this product easy to use?
No. It was waxy and in a tub [which made it] hard to get out. I had to keep rubbing my finger in it.

Did you see a difference in your skin? Was your skin softer and less dry?
It worked well on my lips and elbows. I haven’t noticed a change in other parts of my body yet.

Did it provide relief for your distressed skin?
Yes.

Is it important to you that this product is made with all natural ingredients and no harsh toxins?
Yes.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
No. The consistency makes it too difficult to get out of the tub. I prefer a creamier substance for body care and moisture.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
No.

CINDY STEELE – Meridianville, AL

Was this product easy to use?
Very easy.

Did you see a difference in your skin? Was your skin softer and less dry?
Skin is softer. It works especially well on my lips.

Did it provide relief for your distressed skin?
It worked well on my skin, but not my face. It was too greasy.

Is it important to you that this product is made with all natural ingredients and no harsh toxins?
Very important. Our bodies absorb what we put on our skin.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
I wouldn’t go out and buy it. Vaseline would do the same thing.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Not for the price.

MICHELE DOMKE – Sunnyvale, CA

I didn’t care for the packaging–it was too large. Also it didn’t really transfer well from the container to my finger to my [skin and] lips.

Did you see a difference in your skin? Was your skin softer and less dry?
Yes, I used it on my lips and it kept them moist, not chapped.

Did it provide relief for your distressed skin?
Yes and it was very creamy and smooth.

Is it important to you that this product is made with all natural ingredients and no harsh toxins?
Very much so.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
Yes, but I’d use it more regularly if it was easier to get out of the container.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Yes, it does it’s job.

ANNE KALICH – Lacey, WA

Was this product easy to use?
Very easy.

Did you see a difference in your skin? Was your skin softer and less dry?
Yes. This product really improved the texture of my rough elbows and knees. It also helped the eczema I continually fight behind my ears.

Did it provide relief for your distressed skin?
Yes. It’s especially good for knees, elbows and feet. I’d rub it on my feet, put on light cotton socks, go to bed, sleep overnight – magic!

Is it important to you that this product is made with all natural ingredients and no harsh toxins?
Very much so. Although the skin on my face is not sensitive, for some weird reason the skin on my legs is. However, I had no problems with this product. I was able to use it daily without itching or bumps.

Would you continue using this product? Why or why not?
Yes. It worked and a little goes a long way. It didn’t have an annoying fragrance.

Would you recommend this product to other FOFs?
Yes. I’d recommend this product to anyone who has very dry or rough problem areas.
