I recently received a package from my friend Leslie (Bravenezz) who lives in New York and I have to thank her for including this item in it.
|Josie Says - 'This treatment balm instantly makes lips feel soft, supple, and smooth by restoring your lip's youthful fullness with concentrated doses of natural ingredients'.|
Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment is an anti ageing lip conditioner which helps nourish dry chapped lips whilst fighting the appearance of lines.
The first thing that attracted me to this product is the funky packaging, it looks like a tiny Arabian pot, which makes me think of the film Aladdin. Lovely plastic pot with a stylish bronze lid. Definitely has a certain 'je ne sais quoi'.
Although the packaging is beautiful I have to admit that it would be one for your dressing table as it isn't really 'travel friendly' I would end up losing the lid in the abyss of the bottom of my handbag which would really frustrate me. It would be great if they did it in a 'chap stick' style too.
The treatment is rich in natural, organic ingredients which are Paraben free and this product has not been tested on animals. Argan oil is rich in Vitamin E which is full of anti ageing properties.
The texture of the balm is very smooth and non sticky, when I applied this to my lips they instantly felt softer and had a nice shine to them. I loved the smell of this product it reminds me of 'Fruit-tellas' (if you remember those you will know what i'm talking about) You can use this any time of the day, i've taken to putting it on my lips at bedtime after cleansing and then again in the morning before putting my lipstick on.
I would definitely recommend trying this out if you can get your hands on it. I have noticed you can buy it on Ebay for £9 however, I would be wary about it's authenticity as Josie Maran doesn't sell this in the UK. So my advice would be, if you are organising an international makeup swap with an American Blogger i'd request this item just to try it. I'm really glad I got to. I may even be cheeky and ask for another to be sent over when it is finished (don't worry i'd pay for it). Whilst researching more about this product I found that Sephora is the exclusive beauty retailer for this product - I am so gutted we don't have a Sephora over here.
