This is a review of a set from Josie Maran sold on QVC called Argan Body Revitalization Collection. It's item number is A301256 and it's sold for 6 payments of $10.41 or a one time payment of $62.46. It has a retail value of $135.00. It's still on sale, if you want one don't wait too long because the price will go back up. When Josie was on air on the 4th, she discounted some sets so much so that they were good alternatives to the TSV. Now on to what was included in this set:
- Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream in Peppermint Bark, 4.6 fl. oz., retail value $40.00
- Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Peppermint Bark, 8 fl. oz., retail value $35.00
- Argan Color Stick in Plum Sugar, .55 oz., retail value $22.00
- Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub in Peppermint Bark, 10 oz., retail value $38.00
The retail value for this collection is $135.00 just as stated by QVC. This is the reason I only purchase most cosmetics in sets since they are such a bargain. At the retail price I just wouldn't be motivated to spend that much money. In this kit, the average price per item in the kit is only $15.61 which makes it affordable versus $33.75 per item retail. I was a little worried trying a new scent, Peppermint Bark, but I'm happy to report it smells delicious just like candy canes! Mind you the scent doesn't last very long, it is aromatherapy during application. I really love this scent, it's very refreshing and I hope she has it in another set soon. This set also comes in unscented and Vanilla Fig. Vanilla Fig is a very nice scent also and it's very popular. I've found all of her vanilla scents to be pleasant. The hand cream is wonderful, it's not too oily so that you can apply it and move on with your day without having to wait for it to sink in. Though my top favorite is from L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. The Josie Maran body butter is my favorite of all the brands I've tried. It's not too thin or too thick in it's consistency. It does take a bit of time to sink in. I like to apply it before bed since it's lovely aromatherapy. Body scrubs aren't my favorite type of cosmetic, but they are necessary. Having thyroid disease, my skin cell turnover is very slow and I need something to speed it up. I've been putting off spending money on a body scrub, so this kit was perfect. Of all of the scrubs I've tried, this one is very nice. Typically I use salt scrubs and she stated it's better to use sugar since it doesn't dehydrate the skin. I'm not a fan of her color sticks, so I will be selling it or giving it away. It can be used both as a lip stick and a blush. I'm not very good at applying cream blushes, so I shy away from them. I just can't get them to blend very well and so they aggravate me. Even though I'm not using that product it still makes this kit a bargain at $20.82 for the three products I will be using. The color stick is the least valuable item in the kit anyway. If I sell it, then it will be even less. I find this is the best time of year to purchase cosmetic sets from QVC since the pricing is lower. This is the time to stock up or find gifts for the ladies on your list.
If you missed out on the TSV, Josie Maran Super Size Anniversary Set, it's available on wait list for $8.01 more which is only 10% more than the TSV price. It's still a good value since it has a retail value of $261.00. Did you buy the TSV or any of the featured sets? I'd love to hear your review, please comment below.
