Jose Maran Argan Cleansing Oil

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $32 for 6 ounces

THE SKINNY: Josie Maran took argan oil and made a cleansing oil that also removes makeup and has some anti-aging qualities. The goal is to wash away dirt and environmental stresses and put back some natural moisture and essential fatty acids. 

I've never been a fan of oil cleansers. They feel slimy and can be really hard to rinse off. This one has an icky citrus smell, too.

The cleanser did feel slimy on my face, but it felt like it washed away clean, just as easily as taking off my regular cleanser. It took off all my makeup and left my skin feeling smooth and calm, not tight like some stronger cleansers will do. 

I could have been swayed to buy this one, but a few days after I used it, my face broke out.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. My skin didn't like something in this product.

CHECK IT OUT: This cleansing oil also has almond, safflower seed and grape seed oil.
