Brand Review: Josie Maran

The argan oil-based Josie Maran Cosmetics (also on QVC) seems to grow daily, in both followers and products.  In addition to skincare, they also offer hand and body products, hair care, and color cosmetics.  The brand itself focuses on what they refer to as “luxury with a conscience” which means to the best of their ability they try to use and advocate fair trade behaviors, sustainable ingredients, and environmentally friendly packages.  I have not had the opportunity to try all of their goodies, but here are three of my favorites:

  • Argan Balm and Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil – I love love love both of these. There is not a section of skin that hasn’t benefited from them since I’ve owned it.  I believe I’m on my third tin of the balm now.  Most of the time I use the balm under my eyes and on my lips, and the creamy oil on my cuticles.  Both are particularly good to travel with because of the many uses!
  • Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter – This is ahhh-mazing in the wintertime for my dry skin. I find it a little heavy for all-over use in these humid Texas springs but I keep it around as a treat for my hands when they need a boost.

I have yet to try their color cosmetics but I am looking forward to getting my hands on the Argan Matchmaker Powder Foundation and the Argan Color Stick.  The powder looks great even for dry skin and the color stick works on cheeks and lips!

Granted, two of the items I didn’t like were the Argan Cleansing Oil (it stung my eyes and did not rinse cleanly) or the Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 (too greasy).  But that is all a matter of preference!
