Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream { review }

Hi Lovelies!  You might remember from my Winter Empties post that I have a ton of hand and body lotions to work through, however on Black Friday I caved for a Josie Maran set that was this lotion and the Bear Naked nail polish remover wipes for $10.  I’ve been using this hand cream off and on since December and love it.  Actually, I like it so much I’m sort of rationing it and saving it for when I really “need” it!

Here are the details from Sephora.com

JOSIE MARAN  Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream $22
What it is:
An ultrahydrating, never-greasy hand cream infused with 100 percent pure argan oil and shea butter, and lightly scented with a natural vanilla apricot fragrance.
What it is formulated to do:
This rich, never greasy, super hydrating cream keeps hands looking and feeling good. Josie’s signature ingredient, argan oil, is spun into a creamy butter to revitalize skin and restore softness while improving skin’s texture. Lightly scented with natural essences of vanilla and apricot and infused with shea butter, it’s nature’s most luxurious moisturizer—hands down.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates
Sephora is the exclusive beauty retailer for this product.

My thoughts:
This is a thicker hand cream but it absorbs amazingly fast and leaves your hands feeling super soft without being sticky or greasy.  I also love that this is in a tube instead of a tub.  I have nails, and when I use products that are in a tub, I hate getting stuff in between my nails!  (Huge pet peeve!!)  The scent (Vanilla Apricot) is also light and lingers for a while after you put it on.    I was hoping the scent would be stronger apricot but its just nice and refreshing.

This is my first true Josie Maran product other than little samples here and there, but I cannot get enough of it!  I think this will remain a winter staple for me, since its not really necessary during the spring & summer.

    • Thanks – I really love this stuff, I think this product is exclusive to Sephora but try it out next time you’re in a store. My hands love it! 🙂

  1. I’ve been dying to try Josie Maran’s products! Especially her oils. I’m a lotion addict as well, I even have 3 lotions in my purse at this very second…. it’s an illness lol. Good to know Josie’s lotion is just as phenomenal as she describes it; cannot wait to try it myself!

    • I have 3 on my desk at work and two in my purse! 🙂 I keep trying to work through some that I’ve gotten as deluxe samples or trials but it takes forever!
