Josie Maran Argan Oil | Review

"Oil and my oily complexion DO NOT go!"  

This is what I used to always tell myself.  Always envious of women who would buy decadent facial oils from lush brands, I never once thought that maybe... just maybe I could buy one that might work for me.  

My skin had been clear for quite some time but I started to notice a few dry patches around my mouth and eyes.  I didn't want to buy a new moisturizer because I was afraid switching to a non-gel formula to help with the dryness would cause a breakout and they're f-ing expensive.  
I turned to this oil after having heard Nicole Guerriero rave about it.

0.5 ounce - $15
1.7 ounce - $48
4 ounce - $96

This oil is 100% pure and organic.  No nasties here :)
I found it to be very moisturizing without being too greasy.   
I apply with index, middle and ring fingers and simply massage into the skin.
I found it absorbs within 20 minutes and doesn't sit on top of the skin.
Please keep in mind that a little goes a long way. 
I use 3 drops for my entire face.

  It is a great oil to apply directly onto freshly cleansed skin before applying a night cream.
I only use this product during my evening skincare routine.  I find it a bit too nourishing under my makeup for daytime and I don't have the patience to wait for it to sink in when I'm rushing in the mornings.

This oil helped with my dry patches, improved the quality / texture of my skin and has anti-aging properties.
Guess what?  I use it on my nail beds, hair and any dry skin on my body.
It instantly nourishes and makes dry hair feel hydrated, without any of the added silicones.
Hooray!  I can't see this ever not being a part of my beauty regime.  

Has anyone else tried this?
What did you all think?

If you haven't I would highly recommend purchasing if you are in search of a multipurpose oil.
