What it is: In this corner: my legendary 100% Pure Argan Oil, featherweight division. This is for those of you who love what argan oil does for your chapped skin, hair, and fine lines, and want a lighter touch for those sticky situations or humid summer days. Fighting oil with oil? It works! My Argan Oil Light absorbs even faster than the original. And it actually decreases sebum production with repeated use (sounds crazy but it’s true). Get a semi-matte, radiant finish, no matter how oily your skin, and toss the blotting papers.
Why I love it: This stuff is no lightweight when it comes to doing everything my original 100% Pure Argan Oil does: hydrating, balancing, repairing, replenishing. It’s just a shade less rich, for quicksilver absorption and a whisper-light feel.
What’s in it: My famous 100% Pure Argan Oil, just a little lighter.
What’s not in it: You won’t find filler oils, fake fragrances, or skin-irritating parabens here.
How I use it: When it’s a furnace outside and I want to glow, not drip, or if my skin’s oilier than usual, I use 100% Pure Argan Oil Light as my base moisturizer. It’s also a great primer—makeup won’t melt, no matter how slick the dewpoint.

I saw this product in a magazine where they were reviewing skin care. I have VERY sensitive skin and have tried a lot of products, this is one of the best moisturizers i have used! It is light weigh and doesn't feel greasy at all. I will definitely be getting more.

This product is perfect for my 50+ oily, acne/sensitive skin. Makes my skin soft and smooth and no breakouts! Pls make a foundation using this product - don't add the "cones" - it's perfect as is; add a little color and you'll have another winner!

This is the first and only product I've been able to apply to my skin that leaves it feeling moisturized and doesn't cause break outs. Love, love, love!

As a devoted fan of Josie's original Argan Oil (LOVE), I was "late to the party" on the Argan Oil Light. I did try a small bottle, though, recently.
Oh my gosh I was so surprised! It is the perfect weight for adding a
bit of extra moisture during the day if needed. I was on a vacation in a
dry climate and found myself wondering how I had ever gotten along without it! It is a great addition to my skincare.

Like the product. Is very soothing when you apply. Would like more time to determine if it is what I need at my age 60. Ask me again in a month.Bought 22 some Josie products on qvc and liked them. Wanted to try light oil as they do not offer it

I used to get the most painful acne. Not all over my face, and not all the time, but mostly along my hair line and on my cheeks. I started using this at night after washing my face and my acne is gone! Now I use it night and day whenever I start breaking out (which only happens when I use certain brands of makeup or if I forget to wash my face) and within that very same day, my skin starts healing. My acne scars have faded too. I love it! FYI, in the day time, this oil doesn't make me look oily or greasy at all. The original one did a little bit.

I have tried a lot of expensive lines that have been recommended to me. But this is the only moisturizer that actually feels good and hydrates properly. I think it's great for the summer but would go with the full version of Argan during the winter months. Great product!

This light formula is just the ticket to enjoying the same benefits of Josie's original Argan oil during the day. I bought a small sample from Sephora and was convinced this was a must-have! I use Josie's original Argan oil but was not using it during the day because my mineral foundation would not go on the same when using the Original Argan Oil as a base moisturizer. This light formula made all the difference and I am glad that it allows me to continue treating my skin to the benefits of Josie's Argan Oil round the clock. My skin easily absorbs the light formula within a minute and leaves me with a soft, matte complexion. My mineral foundation goes on flawlessly on top of this. And I can feel it continuously hydrating my skin throughout the day. It does not make my skin feel tight or uncomfortable, but rather soft and extremely comfortable. This is fabulous!

I am in my early 60's and I have come to love all of Josie's Argan products and had to try this version of the Argan oil. Love it! I use it as my daily moisturizer - day and evening. It is absorbed quickly, is not greasy and dries to a matt finish. I even use it under and around my eyes as my eye cream and wake up looking refreshed and the fine lines around the eyes are starting to diminish.

I was so excited when Josie launched the 'Light' version of her Argan oil. I have been a huge Josie Maran fan for just over two years now and when I saw this in Sephora I had to try it. My skin is oily and I live in a humid climate. This is the perfect moisturizer to use every day on my skin. It absorbs instantly and I know that I am getting all the benefits of Argan but in this wonderfully light formulation. I cannot rave about this product enough. I continue to use the original oil around my eyes and on my neck. Please, please never discontinue this one!!!!!
