Foundations -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Argan Matchmaker Serum Foundation


I've been sampling this for awhile and decided to go with the full size since it is a perfect match and it didn't cause my skin grief. Out the gate I must say that this offers zero coverage. So if you are trying to hide skin sins don't even bother with this one. It lightly evens out the skin and is super light. It appears white but once applied on the skin it blends right in. I don't know what the science is behind this product but all I know is that it feels weightless on my skin and it doesn't highlight my enlarged pores that reside in certain spots. I sometimes top this over her tinted moisturizer spf 47 or I wear it over my AM skincare and then "set" it with mineral foundation...especially if seeking medium coverage. My skin is free of acne...finally...and I'm enjoying going without heavy if is this something you seek....light coverage...then this is something worth checking out.

Moisturizers -Josie Maran Cosmetics -100% Pure Argan Oil

on 10/18/2018 9:49:00 AM


Being 100% organic, the Josie Maran Argan Oil nourishes different types of skin: dry, sensitive and normal. As I have dry skin and live in a country which makes it even drier, the nutrients in the oil are excellent for providing protection against further dryness and can speed up the healing of the skin. Once I realized how argan oil is extracted, I became an even bigger fan.

This is how argan oil is made:
I apply a few drops on my skin and gently rub it on my face and I instantly get a healthy glow. The oil really nourishes my skin as it contains loads of Vitamin E and fatty acids. Vitamin E is key to strong immunity and is also a great antioxidant. The product is not only restricted for dry skin, but it can also be used by girls with acne.

Moisturizers -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter

on 10/16/2018 9:39:00 AM

I’m hooked. I can’t go back to using drugstore moisturizers. They’re simply not nourishing enough. I was on accutane a few years ago, so I don’t produce oil. My skin is very dry. I had some severe dry patches between my eyebrows and on my chin. My makeup looked scaly. I’ve used almost an entire jar and my dry patches have softened. The one on my chin is almost completely gone! My skin feels more plump in general. This is a thick unscented cream. You need to rub it in. However, it doesn’t feel thick. It absorbs quickly and nourishes deeply. I still use an oil on top. The jar is made of thick glass and is heavy. I’m not a big fan of jar packaging, but this doesn’t have any active ingredients. I’m running low and will be going to Sephora soon to repurchase!

Lotions/ Creams -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Argan Milk Anti-Aging Body Renewal Serum

on 10/7/2018 5:21:00 PM


I have been using the body renewal milk and it really works. I want to reorder this however, once again this company has stopped making it available! This is not the first time Josie Maran Cosmetics has done this with a product and I don't understand. There is no explanation by them. If it doesn't become available again soon I will never order from this company again. The product is great, the company not so much!!!

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

on 9/22/2018 12:16:00 PM


I'm giving this 5 lippies for one reason: NO CLOGGED PORES.

It seems like every other mineral sunscreen I've ever tried has left me, at the end of each day, with a nose full of clogged-up pores. This one does not. In fact, it leaves my skin beautifully soft and conditioned. I'm also prone to acne around my chin, but have not experienced any such problems while using this product.

Others have mentioned a white cast. I can't detect a white cast on my golden-olive skin (NC30). In this respect, it performs better than sunscreens from Clinique, Cerave, EltaMD, Coloressence, and Coola.

So far, the only downside I've experienced is that it leaves my oily skin very shiny. I'm currently looking into finding products that I can use to control the shine without clogging my pores, because I can't see myself using any other sunscreen. This is my HG.

The texture is light and silky like an upscale face lotion. It is very rich but I don't mind it because it melds better than most sunscreens that feel like a mask on top of my skin. As the name implies, the base is argan oil. I can't detect a scent or odor. (Some argan oils have a funky odor, but this product does not.) I can use it around my eyes without irritation. As far as I can tell, it provides good sun protection. (I don't burn easily.) Overall, the benefits outweigh the one drawback (shiny face) and I will repurchase.
