Frugal Friday – Josie Maran Mini Argan Oil Stick

Today I have a gift for you dear beauties—a whole lotta goodness packed into a little $6 stick. It’s the Josie Maran Argan Oil Stick ($6). This mini stick is a balm that offers all the benefits of the nourishing oil, which includes anti-aging ingredients rich in fatty acids and vitamin E. Since it’s a convenient stick form, the ways you can use it are endless—

  • Moisturize dry, chapped lips
  • Soften dry cuticles
  • As an overnight under eye treatment
  • Sooth dry skin
  • Help stretch marks
  • On dry knees and elbows
  • I’m sure you can think of some others

 

I had been having a real issue with chapped irritated lips and nothing else helped. I tried every lip balm known to man, exfoliated my lips with everything short of sandpaper, used several overnight treatments and each morning I would wake up with chapped lips. What was weird is that my lips were okay, but the edges with very red and rough. It was so bad I couldn’t even wear lipstick—and let me tell you, that is a tragedy for a makeup addict like myself.  

It wasn’t until I reached for my Josie Maran Argan Oil Stick and used it liberally overnight that my lips began to improve. I used it every night and after a few days my lips started to heal and after about 4 or 5 days they were considered kissable again. I’ve been applying the Argan oil stick every night since and my lips are super soft and moisturized. While I was coating my lips, I decided to massage some Argan oil stick into the creases on my upper lip and you know, after two weeks now, I think it’s helping! I’m not crazy about the slight camphor smell—it does smell like another scent was added to try to cut or cover up the obnoxious camphor smell but it didn’t quite work.

This mini stick is perfect to throw in your purse, keep at your desk, in the car or on your nightstand. It’s also ideal to stash in your beach bag this summer; Argan oil can help to sooth insect bites, sunburn, and tame fly aways.
