Sunscreen -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Protect Daily Sun Protection Argan Oil infused Sunscreen

on 7/18/2018 7:41:00 PM

I have dry cheeks and some minor oil in my t-zone for summer and I found this SPF to feel disgusting. It was heavy, sticky and never dried. Does have a white cast that you have to work into your skin but it eventually lessens unlike the feel of this sunscreen. It also worked poorly with any foundation I tried to layer over it causing oxidation, separation and patchiness.

In addition the pump on this bottle takes forever to get the recommended amount. I like pumps like everyone else but this should come with a better pump for the thick sunscreen. I tried to use it on my dry arms and hands but who has 30 minutes to pump out sunscreen?

Has a natural nonscent so a plus there. I might keep for deepest winter. That's the only time I could see using this. But If you have very dry skin, this is for you.

Liquid -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation Fluid


I'm on my second bottle, and am about to order a 3rd, and I am pretty picky about foundation. The shade "G35 Electric" somehow matches me year round (I am an NC20-30 depending on the season), and has a lovely yellow undertone. I actually don't find this overly dewy at all, and I"m combo/oily. It definitely does have a lovely brightening effect, but the finish is satin-matte IMO, although I do wear it on it's own (no primer/moisturizer), since it's summer and my skin does not need the extra layer of hydration beneath. A little goes a long way, and I can easily get medium coverage. Looks very natural, and I don't really need to powder over this to set it, although my nose/forehead tend to be oily, so I do apply some powder just on those areas. I love the bottle, somthing about the rainbow of colors cheers me up every time I use it, and of course a pump is always a bonus. I wish it had an SPF rating, otherwise I pretty much love it!

Moisturizers -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 with Sunboost ATB


Wow! This has to be one of the better mineral based facial moisturizers with SPF I have ever used. For the longest time I have used Bare Minerals Prep Step and the lack of cosmetic elegance is now starting to get to me. Just like most of the other products out there, it feels and smells like a sunscreen. Josie Maran’s has a pleasant fruity scent and really feels like a regular moisturizer going on. Yes, it’s a bit greasy initially but this is due to the argan oil and soaks in quickly. And it’s the first mineral-based sunscreen I’ve ever use that actually feels moisturizing. Many of them feel quite drying and like they leave a film on the skin. I wouldn’t really recommend this moisturizer with SPF fo and it’s the first mineral-based sunscreen I’ve ever use that actually feels moisturizing. Many of them feel quite drying and like they leave a film on the skin. I wouldn’t really recommend this moisturizer with SPF for people with oily skin, but for people with dry to combination skin it feels really nice. Another caveat, I also would not use this in humid climates because I can imagine with the higher oil content it might get sticky.

Concealers -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Argan Creamy Concealer Crayon

on 6/18/2018 8:03:00 PM


I like the convenience and ease of using a fat crayon as a concealer. This crayon rubs on really easily with full coverage. I don't use this as my primary concealer, but as a spot touch up. I dab Nars' creamy concealer underneath on general areas and use this as a spot touch up over areas where i need a little extra attention (acne scars, hyperpigmentation, mosquito bites etc.). The texture is a bit thick to go under eyes or larger areas. But I would definitely re-purchase this for what I do use it for.

Blush -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee

on 5/31/2018 11:50:00 AM


This is just OK. I have it in the Coral colour and I wish it was more pigmented. I have to kind of dig into it with the back of my nail to get enough product and I find myself putting on several layers before it even shows up. Would not recommend for darker skin tones.

It blended well for me and the consistency is fine -similar to Tarte's cheek stain, which I like. I found it went on smoothly on clean, moisturized skin. I was hoping that it would work well as a multi-use product but the pigment payoff isn't big enough.
