Questions & Answers for Josie Maran Argan Balm

Question
Gritty feel?
I scanned the reviews for any mention of this, but couldn't find any. The balm seems to moisturize pretty effectively, but it also has a gritty feel that I don't particularly enjoy. Has anyone else noticed this (is it meant to have an exfoliating effect) or is my item defective? Thanks!

Thank you all for your answers.
The grit did not dissolve when I warmed the balm in my hands or when I applied it to my skin. Maybe I got a defective product. I returned it, and I will not repurchase.

Mine also has a gritty feel to it. I rub it between my hands to warm up the product before applying and then rub it on my skin. I do feel the grittiness, but once it's on my skin I no longer feel it. I also use it on my lips and feel the grittiness at first, but that disappears once the product melts into the skin. I'm not sure why some balms are gritty and others aren't. I've researched online and haven't found any answers. Since the gritty feeling disappears once it's melted into my skin, it doesn't bother me so much.

Yes, I have noticed the "gritty" feel, so I do not use it on my lips.

I absolutely love mine for lips - it is so moisturizing. A little too slippery for me for skin, but I haven't used it on elbows or feet. Probably afraid to us it up too fast because of the price. Mine has no gritty feel whatsoever. Just smooth. I'd take it back and exchange it if you have any question.

Mine also has a gritty feel to it. I just try to work it into my skin a little more. Yours is not defective. I have dealt with the grit because it is so soothing and intensive moisture.

Question
Compare to her Argan Oil Moisturizing Stick
I tried Josie Argan stick for my dry lips, but I did not care for the texture or fragrance, plus it was not long lasting on the lips. How does the balm compare to the moisturizing stick in terms of texture and lasting hydration? Thanks

I did exactly the same thing. This has no taste and is amazing. It stays put and is a little thicker in texture than the balm. I just can't say enough good things about it. I think you will love it too. It will last a really long time as the jar is good sized (so for me it is not a size I can carry in my purse - too big - but I keep it at home and use it when I know my fingers are clean). I was put off by the price, but figured I could always return it. I love it. It is not going back!

I bought both the stick and the balm and I definitely prefer the balm. In my experience, the balm lasts longer and doesn't irritate my skin. There are definitely other ingredients in the stick that aren't in the balm because my skin reacts to the stick and I've never had any issues with the balm.

You might find it too greasy, but if used lightly it might work. I found it wasn't as moisturizing as her whipped body lotion and my skin would be dry again by mid day.

Gritty?
I purchased a kit that came with this in it, but it feels really gritty. Did I just get a bad batch, or it supposed to have the grit for exfoliation?

Argan Balm VS Infinity Cream

The argan balm is very, very rich. The infinity cream is much lighter and absorbs more quickly. I use the argan balm only at night.

I cannot speak for the other one, but I LOVE the Argan Balm. It is so wonderful. I use it on my lips as it is a tiny bit thicker than what I normally use, so for winter it's been wonderful. Maybe a little too slick for me for my skin, but others like it. It has no taste or scent either. I tried some of her other lip products and they taste awful.

answer 3
I have both and like each of them. I tend to use them for different purposes though. I use the infinity cream as intensive moisture for my face or random dry patches. The balm I use on my lips, cuticles, and also on small dry areas. The balm is easy to transport, but can be gritty. I like the cream in the tube, but mine separates a little bit and sometimes just comes out oily not creamy. You can't really go wrong with either one.

This product is very very rich and I would not recommend using it on the scalp. It wouldn't hurt to visit a sephora retail store so give it a try before forking out the money. Be sure to use a very small amount.
