Josie Maran Argan Oil isn't moisturizing enough


I've been using Josie Maran's Argan Oil for the past few weeks and my skin is still flakey and dry! I've been using it morning and night, by applying it either to my dry or wet hands and then rubbing/patting it into my face. I use approximately 4-6 drops every time. Do you think I'm applying to wrong? DO you guys have any other moisturizer/cream suggestions for me?

I don't find it to be particularly moisturizing alone either. I do find that it makes other lotions and serums work much better though. For a while I was using boscia's vitamin c serum and would put about 3 drops in with that and mix them together. That worked very well. Maybe it just needs a "base".


The other issue you may have is a need to exfoliate a little with something gentle like a rice powder. Sometimes an excess of dead skin will make it difficult to let the products absorb.


The clarisonic is really excellent at priming skin for the best absorbtion possible for products. Hope this helps!!
