Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter. I was dying to try the Vanilla Bean scent – apparently it smells like a Starbucks Vanilla Bean Frappucino! Turns out I cannot justify spending $43.00 CAD on the full 8 oz version of the cream. I picked up the 2 oz travel size in Honeysuckle Vanilla for only $15.00 CAD. It’s really a shame they do not carry the travel size in Vanilla Bean. Either way, the Honeysuckle Vanilla is a great second choice.

I’m not great at explaining scents but the Honeysuckle Vanilla smells like a sweet mix of vanilla and honey (oh wow – who would have known?). The smell is not overpowering at all. For how lightweight this cream is, it sure has a lasting and moisturizing effect. Just a bit of this cream makes your skin feel so smooth. Its absorbed into the skin really quick and leaves a great light scent. It does not feel greasy at all. After applying some of this on my own hands – I am immediately compelled to force it on whoever is next to me – which is usually my boyfriend. He doesn’t seem to mind it and likes the smell – so take what you want from that!

This product is a must-try if you are looking for a new body butter/moisturizing cream. Although it is a little bit of a splurge, a little bit of this cream seems to go a long way. If you are hesitant to pick up the full version then try out the travel size. It’s actually a decent quantity for someone like myself who only uses creams on my hands when they are feeling extra dry or when I feel like pampering myself.
