Product Swap: Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil

Time for another product swap! :)
For the past 14 days I stopped using my Cetaphil moisturizer and swapped in Josie Maran's 100% Pure Argan Oil.
This is the first time I've use any sort of oil type product as moisturizer. At first I couldn't keep myself from thinking that this product was just going to make my face a greasy mess, but after the first day all of my worries were gone! 
Overall, I really liked this product. The application was a little bit messy just because it's and eye dropper...sort of. I think it would be much easier if they had just put a pump on the bottle. But I guess that's just part of the 'experience'. 
While using it I noticed that my skin did not feel dry or tight, and when I woke up in the morning my skin had a nice glow to it. However, probably 4 or 5 days ago I noticed a dry patch of skin on one of my temples, obviously this wasn't giving me quite enough hydration. 
What I did last night was I used my normal amount of Cetaphil but I mixed in probably 2 drops of the Argan Oil. Honestly, I don't know if this made any difference at all. My skin always looked glowy when I used the Cetaphil, so it was no surprise to me when the next morning I woke up to glow skin. 
I think I'm going to put this product on the shelf for now; my skin does tend to be dry and I am not ok with flakes or dry patches. I think I'll bring it back out in the warmer months. I have a feeling that since my skin won't need as heavy of a moisturizer that this will be perfect!
I will do a re-evaluation of this product in probably June.

I hope you enjoyed this product swap! Let me know if you have tried Argan Oil, and if you have, what's your favorite use for it?
Talk to you soon!
