This has been my favorite mask since 2004. It never makes me break out. I use it all year round. My skin can become flaky due to retin-a use and unlike other masks this treats your skin w/ great ingredients but never dries me out....much different than your typical clay mask that can cause dryness. Love this! This is one of the few products that I can say I search for no replacement or better …Read more

I really wanted to like this product. I wanted to find a product that photographed well. Like others I found that this product does not look as nice in person as it does in photographs. Also, I think my mineral makeup photographs just as well as this foundation.

I was not exactly thrilled with the overall product for its in-person appearance, I thought it was way too Matte for daily …

I have been using this product for several years. It is my go to product for SPF on my lips during the day. I apply it over my lipliner & before my lipstick or gloss. I also carry it with me to reapply SPF during the daytime. My favorite scent is Lemon Chamomile. I have also tried Mint, Ginger, Black tea & Berry...Lemon is still my favorite by far.

I have been using this for years. I apply it before bed & it makes your lips extremely soft. I don't use it during the daytime because it does not provide both UVA/UVB protection, so in other words it provides SPF but not broad spectrum spf. I use Jack Black SPF lip products during the daytime.

Great basic moisturizing cleanser. I was a bit hesitant to try this since it looked like Vaseline & I have cystic acne from time to time. I took a chance since I really needed a moisturizing cleanser in order to continue my anti-aging & anti-acne regime.

I like to use this mostly in the mornings to wash off my Retin-A or Proactiv treatment from the night before. I apply it to …

Moisturizers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 [DISCONTINUED]

This is my favorite winter time SPF. It moisturizes my skin yet I do not breakout. Since I use Retin-A & proactiv I find the argan oil beneficial, it has never made me breakout in the winter...though I don't use it in the summertime since it is too heavy for my skin during warmer months. So when it starts to heat up I switch to La Mer SPF 30.

I, unfortunately, love this expensive La Mer SPF in the summer time. I don't breakout from it & it does not make my face greasy.

In the winter I use Josie Maran SPF 40, which I also love, since my skin is drier then & can use the moisture.

I really like this cream. I used it on my face & when I am really dry I like to mix it with about 2-4 drops of Argan Oil at night. I used this over proactiv & Retin-A, depending on what I am using that night. I have tried department store & Sephora brands as well and I like this best for my skin. I have never broken out from it.

I cannot tell you how much I love this color, unfortunately it contains Parabens! The ingredients are not listed on the tube but are available on a tear card at local retailers or you can obtain the ingredients buy emailing Cover Girl. I will be looking for a replacement for this color since the product contains Parabens.
