The Argan Oil made me breakout so needless to say I prefer the Lotus Oil. I have been using 3 drops (in the palm of my hands that I rub together in order to warm the product up, then pat on my face and neck) every night for 8 months now and it's just a little over halfway done. The color hasn't changed because I keep it stored away from light. It is made of essential oils, which are photosensitive (I believe that's why Josie Maran packages her in a dark bottle). Lastly, the Argan oil is a little more liquidy in texture, therefore a little less comforting on the skin than the Lotus oil.

The Clarins Lotus Face Treatment oil contains a blend of rosewood, geranium, and lotus extracts which help to purify skin, tighten pores, and refine the skin texture. The Clarins oil has a scent and the Josie Maran Argan Oil is completely fragrance free. Both of the oils will last you about the same amount of time, however, Josie Maran's Argan Oil can be used all over the body and face so if you intend to use it on your body and face, this bottle of oil may not last you as long as the Clarins oil because the Clarins oil is specifically formulated for use on the face only.
