I am a huge fan of cleansing and moisturizing with oils so it’s no secret that Josie Maran Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands. Let’s face it, the woman is gorgeous and I love the products she offers. While I have been a long time user of the Josie Maran Argan Oil, I haven’t tried the Argan Balm or Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter until recently. Once these products touched my skin, I was immediately sold. Since I have dry skin and Eczema, I am always looking for products that will work hand in hand with my beloved coconut oil to provide my skin with the moisture and protection it needs and I’m beyond impressed. Today I’m going to share these products with you and my thoughts on each.
While these products are available in full size, I am showing and sharing with you the travel sizes of each. If you are looking to try these out before getting the larger size, the travel sizes are the perfect amount for you. The Josie Maran Argan Balm in Vanilla Apricot (Net Wt. 28g / 1oz – $12) is formulated to help nourish and protect the skin. Made in the USA, this balm is filled with healing and hydrating properties of Argan Oil that are concentrated in solid, leak-proof form. It is the perfect companion for you when you need an intense hit of moisture. I use this balm at night prior to bed to get a deep dose of hydration. I apply it to my elbows, heels, hands and even on my lips and wake up with soft, moisturized skin in the morning. I also apply this as a cuticle oil and with winter right around the bend, this will be my cold weather protector. Anyplace and anywhere you think you need a little more moisture or protection, apply this balm for a whole lot of awesome. Made with 100% pure argan oil in a base of rich shea butter and soothing essential oils, this balm is free of synthetic fragrances and parabens and is not tested on animals. It is the perfect “on the go” treatment for your skin and I LOVE IT! This balm comes in two scents (and an unscented I believe) and I’m loving it. It has a light fragrance, but smells so yummy.
Next on the list is the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter (Net Wt. 59mL / 2 fl.oz. – $12.00). If you have been following this site for a while, then you probably know that I love The Body Shop body butters, so this is a new thing for me. The Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter from Josie Maran is rich in essential fatty acids and scented with Vanilla / Apricot. There are a few other scents for this particular product. It is formulated with cold-pressed argan oil and is rich in vitamins and minerals as well as other beneficial ingredients that are good for your skin. I absolutely LOVE this body butter. The whipped texture is light and makes it very light weight on your body. It has a light fragrance, but you can still smell the Vanilla/Apricot scent. Applies evenly and smoothly and feels wonderful on my skin. If you are not the type of person that likes oily body butters but wants the benefits of oils within, you may like this one. I can feel the argan oil on my skin, but I’m still able to grip certain items without my hands being too slippery and I love this product all over my body. This is my ultimate treat after getting out of the shower and my skin is left moisturized, soft and smooth. “My husband loves how my skin feels too – which is the ultimate approval – lol.” A little goes a long way with this product, massage all over your arms, legs, body, hands, neck and chest… and feel pampered and wonderful.
Last is the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream (Net wt. 30mL / 1 fl.oz. – $12). The travel is perfect for my purse and I have been using it as such. Included is Josie’s ultra-hydrating formula that is infused with pure argan oil, shea butter and aloe vera to help hydrate, heal and protect dry, cracked hands. This cream absorbs quickly into my skin, making it a great cream for on the go. I don’t like to use hand creams while driving because my hands are too slippery but I do not have that issue with this cream. It’s rich but not too heavy and I love treating my hands with this product while doing a manicure. It smells yummy, feels great on my skin and I have noticed an improvement of my skin and how soft it feels since using this product. I love it.
I have a ton of different moisturizing products and have my favorites. I definitely think these products are going to be life long favorites after using them. My skin feels great and I love how I can get so much use out of little products. I’ll be picking up the full sized items once these run out because I do really enjoy them tremendously. Besides Josie Maran’s Argan Oil – what other body products have you tried and enjoyed from her brand?
