Josie Maran Glowing Argan Oil Skin Care Essentials

I have been curious about Josie Maran argan oil skin care for a while, now. Everyone seems to be obsessed with the brand and I see it, everywhere so when I ran across this Josie Maran Glowing Argan Oil Skin Care Essentials set, I decided to buy one and see what all of the hoopla was about.

Josie Maran calls her line Luxury with a Conscience. Her upbringing in a bohemian household in Northern California gave her an appreciation for natural beauty so when she started her line, she wanted to create effective beauty products that are good for us and the world we share. I kinda like that.

The Josie Maran Glowing Argan Oil Skin Care Essentials is a sampling of four snack sized products from the range and I'm happy to report that there isn't a dog in the lot.

100% Pure Argan Oil I am a huge fan of Argan Oil and his little bottle of liquid gold didn't make me mad, at all. Argan Oil is just about the perfect beauty oil as it is equally fabulous for hair, skin and cuticles. Argan Oil is lightweight, drops right in and leaves everything it touches feeling soft, hydrated and pampered.

I can't find a listing for the Argan Enlightenment Illuminizer. I haven't played with this much, yet. It has a very pretty, luminous glow but it is too dark for me, this time of year. I think it will work in the Summer when I use a little self tanner and have a bit of natural colour.

Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist. I am obsessed. I love facial mists and this one is splendid. The ultra-ultra fine mist can go on over makeup and never spot or melt it and it's a beautiful layering step in my skin care routine. As you can see by the lowered level, I couldn't stop using this mist before I took this picture. I would love to get a full sized bottle of this stuff.

Another full size I'm going to need, and soon is the Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm. This creamy, whipped balm is a beautiful makeup primer or a bare skin perfector when I'm not wearing makeup. It glides on, diffusing and minimizing the appearance of fine lines, pores and texture, leaving a smooth, silky finish. This finishing balm locks down foundation and it can also be used on top of makeup for a quick, perfecting touch up. I like to rub the tiniest bit between my fingers and gently pat over any areas where my base has settled into those annoying lines and tiny creases which with I am blessed, smoothing everything back out without disturbing or ruining my carefully applied foundation.

All of these products are pretty much fragrance free. The Nirvana Hydrating Treatment Mist has the lightest zephyr of a natural herbal scent that doesn't last past application. Josie Maran skin care is cruelty free.

The Josie Maran Glowing Argan Oil Skin Care Essentials set was the perfect for me introduction to this lovely skin care brand and I'm happy that I picked it up. I have no doubt that I will be buying more from this line in the future.

Are you a fan of Josie Maran skin care? What are your favorite products?

  2. I've only tried and JM Argan Oil and it's great. I wish I could spray myself in the face because I agree using a facial mist can really help revive foundation or make a drying foundation look so much better. I love your tip about using a balm on top of foundation to blur lines. I've gotta try that!

  3. I've only tried the Pure Argan Oil - which I actually used on my hair. I also had a sample of Matchmaker Foundation, which actually suited my skintone perfectly, though the coverage was on the sheerer side.

    1. I love the oil! If the foundation is safe for me, I wouldn't mind trying it. I like light coverage and hydrating would be a bonus.

  4. My skin loves her products!!! I don't know if she still makes it but there was a tinted 'oiaturizer that was perfection that I used. Total side not but I enjoy following her on a Instagram. I'm not bohemian or earthy by any means but she shares her lifestyle and children and all of it is beautiful!

  13. Josie Maran basically brought Argan Oil into the marketplace in such a way that everyone followed. What kind of camera or lens do you use for sure beautiful clear close ups? Face on close up looks amazing!

    1. I use an old Canon point and shoot camera. I do the best I can while taking the pictures then bring them to where I want them in editing.

  15. I've never actually tried any of the JM oils! I remember wanting the bronzing one when I was on a bronzer kick, but I still struggle with putting straight oils on my face.
