[New In 1st Impression] Physician's Formula Primer Argan Wear Argan Oil with Coconut Water

Saturday, December 12, 2015
I'm a HUGE fan of Physician's Formula, especially their Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil as you might know from my review of it last month. So when I saw that they've released a new line of products from the Argan Wear line, I knew I had to try something out.  The item that caught my eye was the Argan Oil with Coconut Water. 

  • Light, refreshing and ultra-hydrating blend of 100% pure Argan Oil and 100% pure Organic Coconut Water provides priming, hydrating & brightening benefits all-in-1! 100% Pure Argan Oil, can improve skin's brightness, tone, texture and elasticity. 100% Pure Organic Coconut Water rebalances and rehydrates skin.

  • Exotically scented ultra-luxurious primer absorbs instantly creating a beautiful even canvas that rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin so you can apply your makeup flawlessly.

  • Shake well to mix. Close eyes and spray onto face prior to makeup application or alone for a moisturizing treatment twice a day. Use after makeup to set and add a dewy finish. Can be used on face, body, hair and nails. Let product dry completely before getting dressed.

  • Hypoallergenic. Gluten Free. Cruelty Free. Paraben Free. Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist Approved. 
  • As you can see the Argan Oil with Coconut Water is packaged almost identical to the Ultra-Nourishing Argan Oil. It wasn't until I checked my receipt that I realized this is actually a primer and not only is it a primer, it's a primer in a mist form.

    Although the bottle has a gradation with the top part tinted in the same caramel colour as the Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil, you can still see the contents inside with the top half oil and the bottom half coconut water. Before using the product you must shake to mix these two.

    The bottle has a standard nozzle top that's provides a pretty decent mist. At first I had to mist myself 5 - 10 times to really get the hang of it. Now I just need 2-3 spritz.  

    The mist comes out clear but it does have a bit of oil to it. After leaving it on for a few mins, it sinks into the skin. 

    To test this product out, I sprayed this product to half my face and applied the same bb cream - Innisfree Ampoule Intense BB Cushion - to both sides.  Lately, I've been so busy and tired that I haven't been applying my regular routine of skincare and as a result, dry patches have formed on both sides of my cheeks again. My daily skincare consist of slapping on some sleeping pack before knocking out.



    Although I was skeptical of what 2-3 spritz of a mist can do, there was actually a difference. Upon application, on the side misted, dry patches were not as noticeable as the side with the BB Cushion. People can still see the patches up close but it's not as obvious as the side without the mist primer.  However, as the day wore on, the dry patches became more noticeable and I had to mist myself again to touch up. Foundation sticking to dry patches is not attractive at all and lately none of my primers seem to be able to get rid of that. 

    As a facial treatment, I don't really notice a difference in the feeling of my skin unless I spritz quite a few times. It seems more effective when I spritz before applying other skincare on top rather than randomly spritzing in the middle of the day. Doing the latter half seems to make no difference in how my skin look. However, this is a first impression and how I feel about the product may change later on. 

    Now onto some of the things I don't like about this product. With mists, a lot of the product do generally get wasted as it doesn't all land on the face and with only 30ml, I can see this primer won't last long. I've already gone through 1/6 of the product and it's only been a few days. As a primer, you can get away with 2-3 spritz but as a facial treatment, I didn't notice a difference in my skin unless I spritz it around 5 times. Also, I was really hoping this would smell nice because the mists generally envelop your face and you get a really big whiff of the scent. Argan Oil with Coconut Water smells slightly... sour. It's not citrus, coconut,  or anything I can pinpoint. I'm really not a big fan and I feel almost dreadful when I am about to mist myself. I don't know if my skin is just too dry but my skin stings a little bit whenever I mist myself. This stinging feeling lasts for a few minutes.  Lastly, although it says on the box that I can use this on my hair, I've notice that my hair actually gets a bit solid when I use this, as if it got coated with hairspray. 

    Overall, I'm still not quite sure how I feel about this product. I wanted this to be a quick fix for my dry skin but it's not. I will have to follow my skincare routine more diligently. With a rebate sticker for $9, I think this is really affordable and definitely worth a try, especially since the winter is so dry.  It doesn't hurt to have a bit of more hydration. It's an interesting concept and that's what I really like about Physician's Formula. They always come out with innovative ideas. Other things I'm looking forward to try from this line is the nourishing oil glosses and the translucent powder. I'm still waiting for a good sale to get those.

    For those who have never used a rebate sticker before, it does work. Usually it takes about 3 months for my cheque to get back to me though. Just remember to fill out the rebate form from their website and mail that in with the pink sticker and original receipt. 


    1. Interesting product! I honestly haven't tried much Physician's Formula even though I've attempted to buy some things from them but end up just putting them back on the shelves. Not sure why.. I think I'll pass on this mist for the time being but I've seen that Physician's Formula has released a cushion!

      1. I had no idea they came out with a cushion! Thanks for letting me know :) Some of their stuff can be hit and miss and at such a high price point for drugstore, I can see why you might be hesitant to check out.

    2. Soo glad I read your review, omg I bought this and it stang when I misted it. Will be returning did not know it had alcohol.

    3. Soo glad I read your review, omg I bought this and it stang when I misted it. Will be returning did not know it had alcohol.

      1. You're welcome! I'm glad this helped :) Their ingredient listing is on their website.

    4. Only used this for one day but after a while it felt like I had been to the beach and had salt all over my face?? Also really don't like the smell--was wondering if I got a bad bottle....

      1. Nope~ i don't like the smell either. I think it's got something to do with the alcohol content in it.
