Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil

Hi there.

Miss me? Sorry I’m way behind on comments but trying to get through ’em soon! Doing my best! Promise! E-mail is way backed up as well but will reply as fast as I can. And finally working on giveaways. One winner was alerted already, yay, congrats Candee! More winners are a coming and I’ll be alerting them as I finish up my database with all the entries on each giveaway!

That’s about all my blog news today. How about you? All well? Have a fab Holiday? I’m so ready for the weekend to start! Green Hornet coming out soon, I got messed up as I could have sworn Seth Rogen said it was coming out this weekend on Howard Stern this morning but maybe he was hitting the smoke before that interview. I got all hyped and realized, wait, it comes out next weekend, what the hell is he on about?


In other news I nearly finished Pasta. I’m so damn proud of myself, it only took several weeks to complete ha! I started it back in October proceeded to get busy and never finished it and re-started watching it recently and now I’m down to 5 episodes! Gong Hyo Jin so freaking kawaii! She’s darlin’! Just melts my heart when she runs after Lee Sun Gyun saying, “Chef, Chef!” Awwww! But what’s up with Honey Lee and her McSmirk in this drama…she’s constantly with a weird little grin on her face. Creepy! Totally devastated last night when our two heros are sitting at the bus stop and proceeding to share a kiss and the subtitles went off. I got all kinds of pissy after that but thanks to mayonnaisepan on Twitter for hearing my pleas of, “OMG WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY SAYING!?” and defusing the time bomb and saving the day!


I have a slew of reviews upcoming for you shortly but anyone take note that Josie Maran has a new Argan Cleansing Oil?

Imma want some!

Josie Argan Cleansing Oil has launched on QVC and is, of course, injected with Argan Oil. Are we tired of Argan Oil yet? I say nay! Bring it on in this cold Winter air.

It’s a 6 oz size for $32, about an oz larger than Shu’s version which is $28 at 5 oz.

Could prove awesome eh?

Whatcha think?

    Woot! On a cleaning oil frenzy! No worries, I love me some cleansing oil! It kind of sucks that the US is not digging it as much. Right now, I’m using Lancome’s version, and it’s not too shabby. 🙂


    • the Muse

      LOL morgan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lmao! want me to correct that?! haha or shall we leave it?! ;-D!

  • Carrie

    I want to try this! I’m loving Josie’s AO and some of her cosmetics. The cleansing oil is on waitlist right now tho. 🙁

    • the Muse

      I’m sure sephora will get it soon carrie if it doesn’t come off wait list at qvc 🙁

  • Claire

    She’s really carving out a place in the beauty product aisle and has the stuff to back it up.

  • Lucy

    I haven’t watched HSN for a long time but happened to see this. I was tempted. I guess I’ll wait to see how others like this. I’m not even sure what the Argan oil is about.

  • Mary the Muse Militant

    Love an oil cleanser but have to ask you if you use one with your Clarisonic?
    I’ve read articles saying it is best not to use oil cleansers with it.
    Others say it is fine to use oil.
    What do you use yourself?
    Thanks Muse !

    • the Muse

      noooooooo mary never hun. I use the Clarisonic as a treatment tool not as a makeup remover and def not with oil cleanser ;-D right now I’ve been using it with the new milk cleanser from Korres, sometimes I use it with Philosophy Purity, and sometimes I use it with Rosette Foaming Face Wash ;-D but def not with oil cleanser.

  • Mary the Muse Militant

    Thanks Muse for your advice.
    I use the oil to cleanse off makeup first and was then using the tubes of Clarisonic cleansers that came with the Clarisonic.
    I’ve ran out of those now and need a new cleanser and I won’t use the oil with it as you said above.
    I might try a Philosophy cleanser as Korres is hard to find around here. Maybe a cheapy good old Boots own brand !
    Thanks !!

    • the Muse

      my pleasure mary! ;-D you can def use anything really ;-D Boots makes some nice stuff so I bet you find a great cleanser to ude with ;D

    I finally got my JM cleansing oil after being on the waitlist for 6 weeks… this is the best cleansing oil I ever used! I was wary since my skin’s already so oily + has the nerve to be sensitive. This product has argan oil, grapeseed oil & other ingredients that make it warm up for a moment when you add water.

    Once rinsed off my face looks & feels so clean. The packaging implies that you may not need a moisturizer after using but I do — my skin’s so oily that the wash, once rinsed, leaves my face clean but in need of moisturizer. I only use this cleansing oil at night. I use a small amount of Shea Terra tamanu oil after cleansing since I’m working on getting my cystic acne/scarring act together.

    Drawbacks… expensive at $32/bottle; only sold at QVC for now & the waitlist wait is long.

    • the Muse

      yay jan so glad ;-D sounds fabulous! ;-D I love a good cleansing oil and this sounds fabs!

    Just got the JM cleansing oil, but I didn’t see a clear plastic cap on it. Does it have a clear plastic cap? I was wondering if I got a returned item or not.
