Oil change.

So we all know my love of watching QVC ~ not necessarily buying anything but watching the hosts hawk Isaac Mizrahi swing coats, philosophy three-in-one bubble baths and Corky’s Beef Ribs.

Saturday nights on QVC are my favorite as they feature shows geared specifically towards beauty products.

Because on Saturday nights all us girls are sitting at home in our pajamas watching QVC with a credit card burning a hole in our giant pajama pockets.

Believe me when I say my heart races and I sweat a little bit watching the overdone hosts talk about how I can get that moisturizer for just pennies a day or that eyeliner delivered on a quarterly basis for such a low, low price. They're trying to save me money!

One item that caught my interest is by Josie Maran, she has a line out of Argan Oil products that people are currently flipping out about – and when I say “people” I am referring to the QVC hosts, enthusiastic viewers calling in with glowing testimonials, and sweet little Josie Maran herself.

Model? Actress? I don't know.
But I do know I want that $35 lip palette.

What the heck is Argan Oil?
Who the hell is Josie Maran?
I have no idea - but obviously this oil is life-changing and I gotta have it.

As an acne-survivor I worry that these products may cause me to break out or make my face look like an oil slick - because miraculous as this oil may be, the fact is I’ll still be rubbing oil on my face – which seems weird.

I mean, I don’t even like to eat fried chicken because I am fearful that I will touch the chicken, touch my face, and break out in cystic acne just like in high school.

Okay let’s get out of KFC and walk into Sephora where I just happened to be last week. They had just gotten in their newest, shiniest, bestest Beauty Insider gift yet, which just happened to be a little goodie box filled with big sample sizes of Josie Maran Argan Oil products!

So I blew 500 points in one wad and went for this product I’ve been wanting to try.
This was hard for me as I am a Sephora-points-hoarder, constantly denying the freebies that are offered to me with the thought that something bigger and better will come along.

But now…

I am an oil-on-my-face-convert! The Argan Cleansing Oil was the toughest one for me to bring myself to try but good Lord - it feels and smells SO GOOD. It kind of has that Aveda-like yumminess to it but not as much of an overwhelming/knock you out cold smell. And the Argan Oil itself feels amazing on my face and has also been awesome on my dry cuticles and flyaway hair.

Multi-useful.

I guess my face should have been getting an oil change right along with my Toyota Corolla because my skin has never felt so soft and looked so clear.

The little box of goodness also came with a full size tub of Josie’s Argan Lip Treatment (love it) and her Bear Naked Wipes (haven’t tried those yet because I am too into rubbing oil on my face.)

Reminds me of a snake-charmer basket.


So there it is.
No need to break down and do some pajama shoppin’ from QVC to try out this lovely line. Only needed to spend hundreds of dollars to rack up a shitload of Sephora points.

Bonus.
