Aw, I love kitties too! I have 2 at home and they get all our attention (mine and my husband's)... they're like our only kids! :P We wanted to adopt a 3rd one that I fell in love with at a pet shelter, but our apartment complex has a pet limit of 2.

And yes, I have to be careful with all my cosmetics, because they like to bite and play with anything they see!

Somewhat off topic: Big & Sexy Products are on Hautelook today.

 

Also, I just saw that one of the 500pt Perks at Sephora is a Josie Maran Argan Essentials Kit which includes: Bear Naked Wipes, Argan Cleansing Oil, 100% Pure Argan Oil and the Argan Lip Treatment

If you guys are searching for a good bb.....with a 25 dollar purchase on sephora you can get the tarte bb cream deluxe sample :)

 

 

and the reviews are REALLY good for their bb cream

I used the argan oil for a week.....not really a fan. I have oily hair so I need to wash them daily and by the afternoon next day my hair turns greasy. (Normally happens when I haven't wash my hair the day before) It does make my hair soft though. It works but also makes my hair look greasy very fast.

Ive been using the argan oil on my face and my hair. My face is smooth and my hair so sooo touchably soft! I only use about 2-3 drops on the bottom half of ny hair and it soaks right into the ends. My bf even complimented me on how not frizzy my hair looks (well maybe that was a compliment lol)

I've ben using the JM argan oil too and it's not really doing much for my face :( my face is still dry. Does anyone have any tips for using it? I'm thinking about using it after I steam my face but unsure if I can do this on a daily basis.

I've heard of adding it to a facial moisturizer!

maybe you should use it as a deep conditioner thing, like once a week. Also, I've heard you can use it as a conditioner as in when your hair is wet.

Finally here! I received the Frappe Nail polish and crease brush. Those are exactly what I was hoping to receive smile.gif

Still waiting for my January bag icon_cry.gif

post #1361 of 1419

Still waiting for mine, too. Ipsy emailed me back and said "it should be coming shortly" and posted a link to my tracking that says it is in Iowa (not close)...... wasn't very helpful

I get two bags a month, my sister kept stealing my stuff from my bags so this month I ordered two. I received my bag on jan 15 and I am still waiting for the second bag.I wanted to surprise my sister but by the time I get the bag it might be february. I'm trying to be patient but I'm kinda bummed out it's taking so long. My bag has been in Colorado for over a week, I live in Arizona so I guess at least it's kinda close. frown.gif

Same as what I got! :) The polish is rather thin though... :/ But, guess that makes it good for layering.

Just tried the Bloody Mary polish tonight... it is GORGEOUS!  It's a beautiful cherry red, totally channels Marilyn Monroe.  Now I want to put on some red lipstick and black cat-eye liner!

:( At least we aren't alone!! But I was more than disapointed when the 2 week mark came today :'(

I dunno...I tried the JM oil and I just felt like a grease slick.  I don't have oily skin or dry skin...sort of normal with a patch right between my eyes where it is dry/flaky.  I used 3 drops and by 10 am, I had to go wash my face.  Did I use too much?  I did this:  Washed face, while still damp, applied the 3 drops of oil, blotted my face dry,  then put on my eye serum (because I'm old and vain.)  I didn't wear makeup that day because we were staying home all day.  I didn't add any extra moisturizer or anything weird.  But I was seriously feeling like I was going to drip oil.  

 

I guess I can use it for other stuff.  I like how it feels on my hands after I do my homemade sugar scrub.

I guess I'm lucky that my hair is dry and thick enough that I don't really have to worry about how much oil I put in.  My hair won't really get greasy unless I put it in everyday for a few days.

Maybe try it out on a patted dry face instead of a damp face.. So it doesn't lock in all the moisture? Not too sure.. I have oily skin and while using the oil it actually didn't get greasy like that.. I applied 2 drops on a clean and dry face.

I basically do the same. I wash my face, dry it completely then put a drop on my cheeks, forehead and chin and smooth it out. My skin can get quite oily at times, but I've had no issue with this oil :-)

Okie doke...thanks!  I've tried it this morning with a dry face.  So far, feels the same...sort of greasy...but maybe it'll sink in soon.  Feh.  Maybe I'm just meant to use it on my hands or something...

Just to double check, do you just put it on, or do you work it in? I always like work everything in and have no problems with most products, I do that with this one and I even apply it after working my serum in and my skin absorbs it just fine.

post #1373 of 1419

I don't feel greasy at all when I use the JM. I do it like everyone instructed and pat it on a damp face and it's awesome! I don't feel oily even a little. It absorbs pretty quick.

That's what I do. I add two drops to my moisturizer and work it in.

Same here. I started adding two drops to my regular moisturizer and that seems to work better for me. I think I will use the oil alone as a light moisturizer in the Summer time though.

Yah, I rub in like any moisturizer or other oil I've tried.  I don't feel as drippy oily...but it still feels oily.  Meh.  I guess it isn't for me!

mmm maybe if you try it at night instead? idk maybe it isn't :(

post #1378 of 1419
I used it at night, damp face, 4-5 drops. I have dry, sensitive skin and this was very nice. I do prefer to top it off with a night cream though. My skin is very dry currently. Damn Chicago cold lol
post #1379 of 1419

I find the JM isn't doing a thing for me either.  I have very dry skin.  When I put it on, rub it in, my face looks great, nice and smooth but by morning, I can see the dry again.  Too bad, I was hoping for a miracle but nothing has ever really helped my dry skin in winter so I can't say I'm surprised.

Did you try adding it to a moisturizer? :-)
