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

on 9/23/2018 12:15:00 AM

The original Josie Maran Argan Milk Face Serum is probably one of the first serums/ moisturizers that I'd ever repurchased. When I saw there was a new Josie Maran Argan Milk Anti-Aging Body Renewal Serum I was very excited to give it a try since I love the facial serum versions. I was not letdown at all by the Body Serum. I should mention that the formulas of the two products are pretty different with the exception of Argan Oil and water. The Josie Maran Argan Milk Anti-Aging Body Renewal Serum really does have a slightly liquid/ serum texture and a little goes a long way. That bl eing said, the bottle is tiny for the price, It was tiny. I think if I used this daily it would probably last right around three weeks before needing to repurchase. I think I will save the other 1/2 the bottle for winter time to help use layered with my other skincare products. I do love that this is fragrance free- nice option to have for those of us who have sensitive skin. My video review can be seen here

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.

Moisturizers -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm

on 9/17/2018 2:49:00 AM


I don't understand what this product is for. It doesn't make you glowy at all, it doesn't moisturize, it doesn't work as a primer - the product balls up and is tacky on the face and causes makeup to slide, it irritated my face and caused me to break out every time I wore it, it smears make up when used as a finisher. I just don't understand what this is doing for anyone. I've even just worn it alone to see if it would blur imperfections like a traditional primer, but it seemed to highlight skin texture I didn't even know I had. I was also disappointed with a very unpleasant smell. For my money, if I want a glowy moisturizer I'd go with glam glow glowstarter, if I wanted a glowy primer I'd go for cover fx illuminating primer or smashbox illuminating primer. This is neither primer nor moisturizer nor highlighter. I don't know what this product is and am so confused why anyone would want this. And the packaging is fine aesthetically, but I hate tubs of product because you're contaminating the whole jar every time you dip anything into it. I'd prefer a squeezable tube.

Sunscreen -Josie Maran Cosmetics -Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 Protect and Perfect Tinted Warm Glow

on 8/8/2018 2:21:00 PM


I have fair skin, and I am also a Rosacea suffer, what this means is my skin is always flared up, my breakouts are caused by my rosacea, my skin is so thin that it drys out in the matter of one 2hr flight, or having a shower and missing my moisturizer. If I wear to much make up it gets so easily caked on, and usually flakes off because of the dryness.

I think to many people try this product and think this is what they are going to use for their foundation, its a tinted moisturizer, educate your self. I feel like to many of these reviews are based off of that alone.

However, being someone who has Rosacea, and red skin 99% of the time, this color has worked well for me, I apply it after I but on my mineral block, it leaves my skin glowing and a bit of color over my redness, maybe thats what helps with the 'orange' color others are having, it also doesn't cause any break outs or flare ups. I then apply a mineral bronzer on top and that's it. If you wear sunscreen, which everyone should, your face and NECK should be lighter then your entire body. Apply a light bronzer to your face and NECK and it will solve this issue. Plus everyone knows to apply a bit of your foundation to your neck to help it blend. I am so confused by some of these reviews, so I am just trying to be honest.

If anyone else has flared up skin like me, maybe this wouldn't be a bad option for you. It also last forever as you don't need much, and has the additional added SPF. Its more of a primer, so if you don't like the color then add a bit of your regular foundation on top, it will assist with any dry skin issues.
