Product Review: Argan Oil

I don't think I would ever be accused of being a fashionista. Don't get me wrong, I like to look as pretty as possible. But I can be realist, and realistically 2 little boys + sticking to a budget = easy does it in the beauty department. This means I was excited when I found something that not only simplifies my beauty routine, but helps my skin feel clearer, brighter, and healthier.

I have been using Josie Maran's argan oil for a few months now. I bought it myself and have no vested interested in the product except that it works for me. I use the pure 100% argan oil as a morning and night moisturizer and find that when using it I don't need any additional eye cream. Just a little bit (about 1/3 dropper) works to cover my whole face and doesn't leave it feeling oily. I have sensitive, dry skin and it doesn't irritate at all. Because I don't have oily skin, I can't speak directly to that (please share if you do and have tried it) but because it absorbs so fast and you can use so little, I really think it might be ok for oilier skin.

After the oil worked out so well, I tried the color stick, concealer, and, tinted moisturizer (with SPF 30! I use the fair color). I am now officially having a mini love affair with my beauty products. I have stopped using mineral foundation (which I loved but was very messy and time consuming) most days and am really enjoying the fresh look these few products provide.

I would love to hear if you have tried this or something similar. How did it work? What else have you found that works? What is your favorite new beauty find?
