Even though we are very close to welcoming spring into our lives, winter does not seem to want to go away.  The recent temperatures in NYC have been in the teens.  Excessively dry cracking skin on the face, hands and body have become the norm in my life.  In times of such drastic conditions, I turn to my HG Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter ($35 USD/ 8oz.) to soothe my parched skin.  This natural tub of whipped creamy goodness will work wonders to restore moisture and balance to the driest of skins.

  5. Has a pleasant natural fragrance (vanilla-apricot or sweet citrus).
  6. Fragrance and formula is suitable for men, women and children.
  7. Due to the high levels of organic oils (Argan Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil,  Shea Butter, Avocado Oil and Coconut Oil), not much product is need to reap the moisturizing benefits.

  9. Can be used all over the body and lightly on the face.
  10. Comparable, if not, better than some higher-end moisturizers on the market.

The Cons to Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter:

  1. Limited retail locations; only sold in person at Sephora.
  2. Can feel heavy on the face if too much product is used.
  3. Oiler skins may find the formula to be too dewy and hydrating for facial use.
  4. No other cons…IMHO, this is one of the best moisturizers on the market.

Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter ingredient list.

My entire family is plagued by dry skin.  My husband absolutely loves the Sweet Citrus scent and will not use any other moisturizer.  My eldest tween son (who is a diver and in a pool 3-4 days a week) has been caught using my husband’s precious JM stash.  He also commented on the high quality of Josie Maran Body Butter in comparison to his more economical Trader Joe’s Body Lotion.  My youngest son has very dry facial skin and this lotion is the only product that works for him.

Josie Maran also manufactures a slew of other Organic Argan Oil based products, but I find the formula, size and value of the Body Butter to my liking.  I prefer the Vanilla-Apricot scent and use this lotion as my winter facial moisturizer in conjunction with my oils (discussed here).  As a result, my foundation applies seamlessly and the feeling of hydration lasts all day (especially when used under long-wearing/drying foundations).  I also transfer a small amount into a container to fit into my handbag and use it as a hand lotion throughout the day.

Josie Maran products can be found at Sephora, QVC and

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you if you have excessively dry skin and seek a natural moisturizer, then Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter is for you. The instantaneous hydration and lasting comfort make this body butter a must-have for my entire family. The whipped consistency allows the lotion to melt into the skin, rather than, sit on top of the skin.  Truly a luxurious product; a bold statement coming from a former La Mer Moisturizing Cream user.  Have you tried any Josie Maran products?  Be well and stay safe.

    I have very very dry skin. It is flaky and arms are scale I think from meds I’m on. I ordered the uncented due to the copd. AND due to extra sensitive skin, does this Body Butter cause any reactions ? Can I use it on my face ( cheeks chin, forehead?

    • Hello Rhonda,

      I have not had any issues with the JM Body Butter. I use this rich cream all over the body and face. It truly is a lifesaver in the harsh cold winter months.
