My skin craves moisture all year round so the search for extra hydrating body lotions, balms, and butters is a never ending one. The Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Ultra-Hydrating Body Butter is a product that instantly caught my eye because my skin ADORES Argan oil.
Argan oil, the oil in which Josie Maran places in most if not all of her products, is an orderless oil believed to contain vitamin E and other essential fatty acids. Argan Oil has been known to help fight skin irritation inflammation, and assists with the fading of hyper pigmentation.
The Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Ultra-Hydrating Body Butter is a light and silky but intensely hydrating butter that claims to offer relief to even the driest skin. Packed full of antioxidants, and luscious skin calming ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, and sunflower oil, this product promises non-greasy moisture and comes in Vanilla Apricot and Sweet Citrus, two scents that Josie Maran says “lightly linger on my skin like an all-day aromatherapy infusion.”
This body butter is non-allergenic, allergy tested, clinically tested and is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalate and retails for $35 for 8oz ($4.35 per ounce)
I love the fact that this body butter has such amazing ingredients I have prior positive experiences with and that have been clinically proven to moisturize the skin. The thick yet lightweight consistency of this product did not leave my skin greasy. It’s creamy consistency is easy to apply with only a little going a long way. This product’s moisturizing qualities linger despite frequent hand washing and left some of my driest areas soft throughout the day.
Retailing at $35 for only 8oz, the price of this product is a little steep making it a definite splurge for most. While a little goes a long way, I cannot see me using this body butter everyday over my entire body due to the cost. I love scented body lotions, however, the smell of this butter can be quite overwhelming at times and could easily over power any perfume or body sprays that you may apply afterward. I am a nurse and I have to wash my hands frequently, yet despite its great qualities, I will not be able to use this at work as the smell will surely bother my patients.
The Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Ultra-Hydrating Body Butter is an amazing product that does everything it claims to do. If this Josie Maran created a bigger container for the price, and scaled back on the scent, I would easily give it 5 stars.
