Washing your face with oil? It’s not as crazy as it sounds. Because the oil in question is 100% Pure Argan Oil, a powerhouse of nourishing, skin-cleansing essential fatty acids and antioxidants that purifies as it soothes. Leave behind the drying soaps and abrasive scrubs and hop on the oil cleanser bandwagon. In a word (or two): it works.see more...

I don’t know what I would do without this cleanser. I bought it on the recommendation of a Sephora employee whose daughter had similar skin concerns as I do. My skin is extremely sensitive and every cleanser I’ve tried before causes painful cystic acne. This not only helps clear and prevent breakouts but leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated you only need 2 or 3 pumps and my bottles last a long time. You do need to make sure you rub it over your dry skin first then massage your face with wet fingers in order for it to work the best. This is my all time holy grail product and I can’t imagine going back to a gel or cream cleanser
This is the first and only oil cleanser I've ever used. I wanted something light that would take off my makeup and pre cleanse my face before my main face wash. Over all the directions were easy to use, the smell was soft, it's very generous, it great for sentive skin, and it did a great job taking off my makeup. I did not like how sticky the product is and how my face always still felt sticky after I used it. However I did continue using it after about two months and only stop when my face started breaking out (due to foundation not this product) and my dermatologist gave me a recommended list of products. Overall a great product for anyone with sentive skin who wants an oil cleanser. As long as you don't mind the sticky.
Personal preference is for cream based cleansers as opposed to oil. Mainly because that’s what I grew up on. But I was gifted this from Sephora, and I used about half of it before I passed it on to someone else. It worked well for removing makeup, and my skin reacted well to it, but it was just not my cup of tea.
Perfect for removing a full face of heavy makeup, waterproof makeup, highly pigmented makeup, stubborn makeup, even helps loosen and remove left over lash glue. I use it almost daily and have been for years. Safe for people with oil skin as it does not leave the skin oily when used properly.
Let's talk! This oil is lovely. Feels light weight but effective on the skin (great if your nervous about using an oil). I wear a full face of makeup about 5 days a week and start with a makeup wipe follow with this and cleanse. This breaks down so much of the leftover product and conditions my skin and LASHES. It also helped me a little bit with my redness, overtime. People say its a little thick in texture which is why you need to wet your face a tad before applying and massaging in but then its wonderful.
I’ve had this for a couple months now and I can honestly say it’s my new favorite thing! I told the lady at Sephora I was looking for a good value facial cleanser that was gentle and effective, and she immediately led me to this. I had never used an oil cleanser before, but I been a huge fan of Josie Maran’s line of products for awhile! And this was such a good find and a great deal, I had no idea she even made cleaners! I will definitely rebuy.
I use this most every day. Unlike the argan oil which feels too heavy, this is a really nice cleanser. It leaves my face with enough oil to not overproduce and cause me to break out. In between using the PTR blemish buffing wash, this is what I will use. The smell is nice. The size of the bottle is nice. I think I got this as part of a kit with the argan oil and the sunscreen oil from my Sephora inside JCPenney. I do not have acne/pimples like I used to from using this product.
I am so in love with cleansing oils and Josie’s Argan cleansing oil is awesome. It feels warm on the skin when you first apply but takes off all makeup, gets rid of all dirt really nicely. I will always buy this product!
Great make up remover leaves skin soft hydrated not stripped great for removing waterproof makeup. I love this product for the summer it removes all make up dirt and sunscreen but goes not leave my dry. I have eczema and I'm aginf this is a great product to soothe my irritated skin.
Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil is an interesting product. I tend to have dry feeling skin that is also oily at times and sometimes get breakouts. This cleanser has a nice barely there scent and the bottle is clean and nice looking. Also a large size for a cleanser. This stuff leaves your face feeling soft and hydrated but not oily despite it being an oil cleanser.
Q & A
Does this make your skin dry?
I bought this yesterday but I don't think I totally love it--did anyone have to get used to using this?
Has anyone else had any issues with the bottle/pump leaking? It has happened twice for me and the first time I thought I could a defective pump, but a second bottle appears to be leaking again.
Is this a thicker oil? Do you need to use another cleanser after using the oil?
I wanna try this. Any feedback?
