QVC's Josie Maran TSV - May 2016



Eight Piece Argan Oil Body Butter Whipped Creamery - May 14th TSV


This is a preview of QVC's Today's Special Value for May 14th 2016. It includes eight 4 oz. jars of Josie Maran's Argan Oil Body Butter. It features five of her favorite scents: 
  1. Vanilla Bean 
  2. Vanilla Fig aka Be Giving
  3. Vanilla Apricot aka Be Joyful
  4. Lavender Citrus
  5. Unscented aka Be True
Also included are three brand new scents:
  1. Limoncello
  2. Cherry Pie
  3. Orange Creamsicle
She calls it "Eight Scoops of Argan Love" and she says "just one scoop of these melty, creamy treats will satisfy, delight and entice all of the senses". The preorder item number is A279888 and the auto-delivery (A/D) preorder number is A279897. The item number on May 14th will be A274952 and the A/D number will be A279895. The price is $69.96 or four payments of $17.49, note that easy pay may not be available on the day it airs. Auto-delivery shipments are every six months for two years. One 4 oz. jar retails for $22, so the retail value on this box is $176! Each jar in this set only costs $8.75, bargain! That's why I only buy her TSVs since they are a bargain in comparison and separately they are just too expensive for me. Be sure to click on the photo to enlarge it to get a better look at the jars.

The jars come in a sturdy storage box that could be used for something else when you are done. It would make a wonderful gift since the presentation is impressive. I recommend only opening them when you are ready to apply some of the cream since the seal will have quite a bit on it that you'll need to use right away, so that you can throw the seal away. Also, prior to opening the jar, tap it on the table to get rid of the air bubble and let it sit upright for a bit so the contents can settle. I just applied Cherry Pie and it smells scrumptious! It's smells just like cherry pie and the crust, it's very authentic. I'll be trying the other two new scents next. I've tried four of the five other scents before when I purchased the 2 oz. set of jars. Out of all the scents I've tried so far Apple Crisp & Caramel Apple were my favorites and my least favorite is Vanilla Almond. What's your favorite? I've been purchasing more of her TSVs than any other brand lately, I'm truly addicted. I also purchased her November 2015 TSV and her February 2016 TSV. I highly recommend this set since you'll never be bored with so many scents to chose from not to mention I've found her body butter the most moisturizing of all the brands I've tried. While four ounces might not sound like a lot, you'll need much less than other brands per application. It's not too thick and not too thin, so application time is quick yet extremely moisturizing.

Update - Orange Creamsicle is my favorite! It smells just like the ice cream and it's making me crave it! Limoncello smells like lemonade, it's yummy. I'm not a fan of the seals on these jars, they are really hard to get off. You may want to avoid using your nails because it can cause damage to your nails and/or manicure. I landed up using a nail art dotting tool to pierce the seal and then pull it off. Scissors may work also, but you'll need to be careful.

  2. Do you know if any of the scents will change with future shipments if you do autodelivery?

    1. They have in the past, so my guess is the ones listed above 1-5, her favs, will be the same but the new scents, 1-3, will be different.

  3. I love the vanilla apricot and sweet citrus, lavender, and ginger. I can't wait to try vanilla fig. I hated the Caramel Apple scent, but it was my first body butter from her and hooked me like a fish!

  5. Hi, do you know if each of the tubs are sealed? I know in the past I have bought her body butters and once I twisted the lid there was no protective seal just the cream. Ideally it would be nice to have each of them have a seal to give as gifts :) and so they won't get ruined too fast.

  6. I noticed the ingredients in the newest ones seem to be different! Are the textures the same and does it affect their penetration?

    1. It seems the same to me. What ingredients did they change?

      Delete
  7. Quite a few! I got the list of ingredients from Qvc! The only ones that seem to be significantly different are the three new ones! What caught my eye at first is that citric acid is the last ingredient and it does not seem to have ever been in any of the others then I spotted several others! I love the original ones and am just unsure whether the new ones will feel the same on the skin and do the same "magic"?

  8. For seals like this, I usually use a knife to slide them right down the center, then reach my finger in to pull up the seal from the center and then move around the edges. Much easier than trying to grab from an edge. Thanks for the updated review!
