Josie Maran

Sunday, April 7, 2013

A few weeks back, Sephora had an awesome Josie Maran set up for grabs for 500 points.  I immediately added this gorgeous set to my shopping cart and anxiously awaited its arrival!  I'm a huge Josie Maran fan and although i had already tried a couple of the products in this set, there were a few new items that i was anxious to dab into.

First, i'm a bit obsessed with makeup wipes!  After all, keeping a few packs on my nightstand and bathroom ensures that i will never have an excuse to go to bed with makeup on!  I have tried and liked many brands, though i always fall hard for those with soft cloth wipes that are gentle on my skin and eyes.  Josie Maran's Bear Naked Wipes are packed with a blend of aloe vera, chamomile, cucumber and vitamin E.  They are fragrance free (perfect for my sensitive eyes), and free of parabens and petrochemicals.  The bonus... they feel luxuriously soft and wonderful on my skin!

Josie Maran's signature ingredient in most of her products is argan oil!  Yes, it's hip... it's trendy right now... but it's also fabulous for your skin!  Since i love multi-tasking products, this wonderfully rich oil is essential in my makeup bag and nightstand.  I use JM's Argan Oil on my cuticles, dry knuckles and occasionally on my dry lids.  It's fragrance free and gentle enough to use on my 5 year old girls which makes this product an absolutely staple at chez FMM!

Ok, so if you've kept up with my blog, you know i LOVE lip balm!  I own many brands and keep this FMM staple just about everywhere... my makeup bags (yes, i have several - don't judge!), my night stand, most of my purses and probably most drawers in my house!  Josie Maran's Argan Lip Treatment feel incredible!  I simply apply some on my lips before bed to ensure that my lips wake up feeling soft and refreshed!

Josie Maran's Argan Cleansing Oil was my least favorite of this set.  In fact, i'll be honest, aside from the fact that i don't enjoy an oil based cleanser for my face, i honestly couldn't get past the smell.  I won't tell you what i thought it smelled like because i don't want to leave a visual, but lets just say, it wasn't pleasant... for my taste!  I hate writing this negative portion of the review because i love keeping my reviews solely positive, but since this product was part of this set, i had to give you my raw and honest opinion.

Overall, i was very pleased with this set! I use and would absolutely purchase 3 out of 4 of these products again!  Success!

Thank you SO MUCH for reading! XOXO Carla - FMM
