Being a Hockey Mom means I have to spend a lot of time in cold temperatures. It's like winter all year round. We spend several days a week at the ice rink, and as weather gets warmer here in Texas, my skin pays the price more every day. The change from warm to cold in such a short time span zaps any moisture out of my skin, specifically my hands. I went on a hunt for something that would moisturize my skin better than your average drugstore lotion. During a quick trip to Sephora, I was told to Josie Maran's Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream a try since the Argan Oil would bring moisture back to my hands and elbows, the places that suffer the most.
Description: From Josie Maran's website, 100% Pure Argan Oil, whipped to buttery perfection with rich shea butter, will soften you up in no time. With hydrating macadamia nut oil, anti-inflammatory chamomile and green tea extract, and nourishing carrot seed oil, it’s the most luxurious cream ever, hands-down.
Size: 2.37 oz
Review: I was a bit skeptical that this would actually be the cure all for my dry hands. When I tried this in the store, I was very pleased, and somewhat surprised, with how creamy and moisturizing this was right off the bat. The hand cream melted into my skin quickly, I would guess this was due to the argan oil and shea butter that has been whipped into the hand cream. It also didn't bead up when rubbing it in, a issue experienced with other "moisturizing" hand creams. I was sold on how amazing this product was that I now have two travel sizes (limited edition, no longer available) in my purse, one in my car, and a full size on my beside table. I also keep at least one on hand as a spare for when the others run out. This only comes in one scent right now, Vanilla Apricot, but the smell is nice and not too heavy. The Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream does run on the more expensive side, but it's well worth the splurge! Only a small amount is needed each use, so the tube lasts a while. I would give this product a solid 4.5 stars!
