Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Review

IMBB Sponsored Product Review

Hello ladies,

This will be a review of an IMBB sponsored product. Its the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in the scent Vanilla/Apricot.

Product Description:

Josie says:

What it is: It’’s not heavy, it’’s my butter——silky, intensely hydrating body butter that smells subtly yum and gives sweet relief to the driest skin. Packed with luscious oils and whipped to a feather-light texture, it sinks in instantly for velvety soft skin in a flash. Spread the love and feel the difference.

Why I love it: No matter how many hot baths or red-eye flights I take, this stuff has my back… and my front, and everywhere else. It’’s hard-core enough to quench parched elbows and heels, but never greasy or sticky. And the two fresh, natural scents—, vanilla apricot or sweet citrus—, lightly linger on my skin like an all-day aromatherapy infusion.

What’’s in it: No wonder it feels so good. My Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter is a powerhouse of more than ten plant oils and extracts, plus the star of the show, 100% Pure Argan Oil, with its restorative and antioxidant properties.

What’’s not in it: I don’t clutter my butter with ingredients that are toxic, or unethically tested. That means no parabens or harsh artificial fragrances. And no guinea pigs, unless you count my friends and family.

How I use it: Long, hot baths are a treat that motherhood doesn’t allow for very often.  I am lucky to grab a shower when I can. Either way, my skin loves to soak up the deliciousness of Body Butter after bathing, when my pores are open and receptive to all that whipped, velvety goodness.

My Experience with Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter:

Firstly, its all due to the amazing cooperation of IMBB that so many of us, the writers are getting to try such great products and we get to bring forth our experience to help so many of the readers to invest your money in the right products.  Josie Maran cosmetics are widely known because of the ingredient – argan oil which she uses in all of her products.  Argan oil has numerous benefits when used on skin or hair and it has been slowly gaining popularity among cosmetic companies as well. Josie Maran also claims that most of the ingredients used are organic and naturally derived while being paraben and cruelty free.

I fell in love with this body butter from the very first day that I used it. The best thing about this product which is so different from any other body butter I have used is the texture and consistency. The cream is so light, airy and super silky and just spreads on like a dream.  The term “whipped to perfection” couldn’t be more right.  It just melts in the skin and gives smooth and silky application.  It feels so luxuriously moisturizing on the skin but at the same time, it is so lightweight and does not leave a film or layer on the skin. Skin absorbs it thoroughly and there is no greasiness left behind. Though it does provide a slight sheen on the skin it seems to disappear after the product gets completely absorbed which does take a few minutes.

It comes in a huge jar tub which may seem unhygienic to some. The quantity provided is very good for the price and since you need very little as it spreads easily on the body, a tub will probably last me months even with regular use.  I feel that this body butter is suitable to be used all year long. It is moisturizing enough to be used in winter months, but will also good for the summers since it is not too heavy on the skin. When applied overnight, it will fix even the driest and the most parched areas of the body and skin feels soft and hydrated all of the next day. No more itchy or dry skin.

It comes in two scents which is vanilla apricot and sweet citrus.  I have the “vanilla apricot” version of this. The sweet fruity scent is very pleasant and not too overpowering. It does smell very much like fresh apricots. Scent does faintly linger on the skin for a long time, but I do wish it also came in an unperfumed version too since the scent does seem to clash with other perfumes that you may have applied.

Overall, this is a perfect product if you want to give your skin a pampering treatment this winter, buy it for yourself or as a gift. You cannot go wrong with this product. Definitely will recommend to everyone and I am buying this again when I run out.

Pros of Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter:

  • Whipped consistency feels divine and spreads effortlessly.
  • Does not feel heavy on the skin.
  • Absorbs completely without leaving a greasy layer behind.
  • Natural organic ingredients.
  • Fruity scent is not too strong or overpowering.
  • Quantity provided is good for the price.
  • A little goes a long way without compromising the hydrating abilities.

Cons of Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter:

  • Tub packaging may seem unhygienic to some.
  • Huge tub is not practical to take on travels.
