You guys, I’m obsessed with Josie Maran’s Argan oil products. Totally, totally obsessed. My skin is sensitive and had been really red and flaky for some time (damn you, fickle weather!), so I tried applying her regular ol’ Argan Oil before my moisturizer at night and seriously, in about a week, all the redness and flakiness was gone. And it’s stayed gone.
So naturally when I heard about Josie Maran’s new Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47, I had to try it. Once again, a very wise decision.The moisturizer is great–it’s thick, but not so thick that it feels greasy or gross (my pet peeve in moisturizers with sunscreen) and I love that it has a high SPF. I’m very fair and burn easily, so as much as I may like some daytime moisturizers that I’ve tried with lower SPF’s, they’re just not practical for me if I plan on spending any time in the sun at all. But having an SPF 47 is a lot of protection for my average days since I don’t spend a ton of time outside in the direct sun (just enough that an SPF of 30 or below isn’t practical). I’ve been using it for about two weeks now and it’s definitely protecting my skin and keeping it really well moisturized (no redness or flakiness has returned!). It does have a little bit of a sunscreen scent, but nothing overwhelming at all and I find that it goes away quickly once I smooth it into my skin. All my fellow pale skin friends – definitely check this one out!
