I stopped into Sephora a few weeks ago to browse the new holiday sets and gifts. I love when brands package their favorite products into gift sets because you can try a variety of items at a smaller price point and then go back and purchase your favorites in full size versions. After walking through the aisles for about ten minutes, the Josie Maran Cosmetics counter caught my eye. I have never purchased anything from the brand before, but I’ve always heard wonderful things about her Argan oil. I have combination sensitive skin that becomes very dry during winter months. I recently noticed that my typical moisturizer isn’t thick enough to hydrate dry patches on my face. After a bit of research online, I decided to purchase the Whimsical Wonder Argan Oil Skincare Essentials set. I love that this set comes with five products for only $39 at Sephora! The set value is actually $72!
The Josie Maran Whimsical Wonder Argan Oil Skincare Essentials set includes:
0.5 oz 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil
0.33 oz Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment
0.5 oz Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil
0.5 oz Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47
2 oz Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in “Be Joyful” (Vanilla Apricot)
The Argan Oil hydrates and nourishes the skin. I apply it after I wash and pat dry my face. The packaging is great because it comes with a little dropper applicator so a little goes a long way. Typically I use one to two drops to cover my face. I then follow up with one drop of the Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment. This treatment improves skin tone and texture – after one use I couldn’t believe how different my skin felt and looked. On days when I need more hydration, I’ll follow up with the Argan Daily Moisturizer. This product is a lightweight moisturizer that “features skin-loving ingredients such as green tea, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and innovative SunBoost ATB, resulting in powerful sun protection.”
I love using the Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter all over my body for smooth skin and nourishment. The Vanilla Apricot scent is divine! I tend to use the Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil on my heels after a long day on my feet at work. What I love about Josie Maran products is that they are paraban free, eco-friendly, and natural. If you have sensitive skin, this may be the best skincare product line for you as it does not irritate the skin. I never considered putting oil on my face but I can’t tell you enough good things about how much better my skin looks after one month of using Josie Maran products.
