What it is: Washing your face with oil? It’s not as crazy as it sounds. Because the oil in question is 100% Pure Argan Oil, a powerhouse of nourishing, skin-repairing essential fatty acids and antioxidants that purifies as it soothes. Leave behind the drying soaps and abrasive scrubs and hop on the oil cleanser bandwagon. In a word (or two): it works.
Why I love it: My Argan Cleansing Oil is all things to all skin types. It removes every trace of makeup and dirt, deep-cleaning pores without rubbing sensitive skin the wrong way, and works equally well for the most common complexion complaints, from acne blemishes to dryness to dullness.
What’s in it: I blended 100% Pure Argan Oil, the foundation of my line, with lush, replenishing almond, safflower seed and grapeseed oils to heal, cleanse, and protect. Free radicals and everyday impurities don’t stand a chance against this plant power.
What’s not in it: You don’t need to dry your face out to get it clean. That’s why I leave out the moisture-sapping sulfates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances.
How I use it: Rub a few pumps between your palms and smooth over your dry face. Wet your skin and massage the cleanser in. It emulsifies into a rich, creamy milk that rinses easily with lukewarm water. And you’re done.

It takes a few weeks to get into the habit of applying the cleanser to your face while dry (I put it on immediately before stepping in the shower or I'll forget!) but once you use it, you will never stray!
I have oily, acne-prone skin. I've been using the Argan Cleansing oil almost two years. My acne has stopped plaguing me and my skin tone is so much more even now.
Like the reviewer before me, I also have turned my mom onto Josie Maran products, mainly this cleanser. Customers for life!

I have finally found a cleanser that has not irritated my skin! This is huge because every cleanser that I have tried (and that number is huge) sucked what little moisture I had left in my skin, and left me with burning, red, flaky skin. JMC's Argan Cleansing Oil has turned my skin around!! It does not strip-it hydrates and soothes!! I will never use anything else to cleanse. It also removes your makeup with ease! Not only am I hooked for life, but my mom is also! Thank you Josie, for another wonderful product!!!

I switched over to Josie Maran's cleansing oil last winter while using their TM. I used to use the cleansing oil from Origins before but find this to be a better choice as it left my skin hydrated while removing face and eye make up. Never bothered my sensitive oily combo skin...would highly recommend trying!

I love this cleanser! I have been using it for about three weeks with excellent results. It has a lovely scent and is not at all irritating to my skin. It even takes off eye makeup without stinging! I am so happy to stop using a separate eye makeup remover. I have never used an oil based cleanser before and was surprised to like it so much. Because my freshly cleansed skin isn't tight and dry any more, my skin looks younger! I haven't had any breakouts since using it, either. Thank you for this product.
