Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 Review

Even though I am only in my early 20's, I have learned that good skincare is worth every penny. Although I am not ready to invest in $300 eye cream just yet, I am loving Josie Maran's products because of their natural ingredients and because Argan oil does wonders for my acne-prone skin.
 
 
The Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer with Natural Broad Spectrum SPF 40 ($35) is a great daily moisturizer and skincare all in one, without any greasiness or odd smells typically associated with that high of a sunscreen.
 
 
This is marketed for all skin types and has Argan, Apricot, Jojoba, and Pomegranate oil along with Chamomile and Green Tea Extract and Aloe. So many good-for-you ingredients along with no parabens or synthetics and is vegan and cruelty free.
 
 
This is pump-style application and although is comes out white and a little watery, it does not leave a white cast on the skin, photographs just fine, and sinks into skin quickly. My only qualm with it is that I wish it were a bit easier to distribute all over my face, because the argan oil sucks into your skin so quickly (at least on my face). That isn't a deal breaker though, because you don't need a thick layer of this to get all of the benefits. Also, this may be common knowledge, but I tend to rub my eyes from allergies---don't do it with this! It will transfer from your face into your eyes and burn like sunscreen. Which is obvious, I know. So now I have to kick my habit of touching my face. But for this product, I think I can.
 
I really love this moisturizer and I highly recommend it, especially for oily skin because argan oil does wonders to regulate that oil production and doesn't irritate acne.

  3. I was looking forward to trying out this product and once I read your post, I decided to buy it. Sunscreen is the only face product I like to wear and love Argan oil for my hair, so I thought why not for my face?! I wanted to let you know though that when I went to Sephora the other day, the MUA told me that JM is re-releasing this product b/c they have decided to reformulate it. So, these ones are either sold out or discontinued. Thought to share w/ you in case you would like to post it for your readers. :)
