About Josie Maran
Josie Maran

Raised in a bohemian household in Northern California, Josie Maran grew up appreciating natural, unpretentious beauty. At the time, makeup — heavy and mask-like — seemed anything but pretty to her.

"When I compared the supposedly glamorous women I saw in magazines to my mother, who never wore a stitch of makeup, it was no contest," says Josie. "My mom was, and still is, a true beauty."

Following her mother's lead, Josie opted to avoid cosmetics altogether. Josie began modeling at age 12 after being discovered at a family friend's barbecue. Though she loved working, Josie waited until she finished high school before pursuing modeling full-time. At 17, she signed with Elite in Los Angeles, and her career as a professional model kicked into overdrive. Josie quickly earned a name for herself by landing some of the most coveted jobs in the business, including the cover of Glamour magazine (she would go on to grace it five more times) and a stint as the iconic Guess girl. Soon, Josie was regularly appearing in top fashion magazines.

"As I began to land jobs, I discovered what a lot of other girls already knew: the power of makeup. I'd never even applied lip gloss, but I learned trade secrets from the team of expert artists who applied my makeup on photo shoots. I was surprised to see how makeup could transform not just my look but also my mood! I saw that a little could go a long way, and I stopped seeing makeup as the enemy."

With a remarkable portfolio of commercials, ads, and music videos already behind her, Josie moved cross-country and signed with Elite in New York. In 1997, she landed a lucrative contract as the face of a major cosmetics brand, a title she held for nearly a decade. In another career coup, Josie was featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue three years in a row. She also made a successful transition into acting, appearing in feature films including Little Black Book, Van Helsing, and The Aviator. But it was the birth of her first child that jumpstarted Josie's latest endeavor. Josie explains, "Becoming a mother inspired me to take a look at my life and ask, 'What can I do for the world? How can I contribute?'" Having spent so many hours in the makeup chair, Josie was ready to create her own signature line.

"I want to contribute to making positive change, and I also want to create something fun, beautiful, and luxurious," Josie says. "My dream is to build a brand with so much influence and popularity that my customers and I can work together to make the world a better place."

Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible I bought the huge jar of this not realizing it wasn't the regular stuff. I decided to try it after thinking about it for two weeks. It's terrible. I went out and when I came home,I realized it was all over my shirt. I must've looked quite the idiot! It's also too thick for me. You have to keep rubbing to not miss a spot. Then the next day it's all dried up in the hairline. I wish I could get the regular stuff in caramel apple. That smelled so good! 05-14-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stains clothing Although I really like Josie's regular Argan oil products, this one is a dud. It's moist and creamy, which is a good thing, but it never "sets," so it rubs off on clothing and linens. I even tried REALLY rubbing it in and letting it dry for an hour before dressing, and it still stained my slacks. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. 05-13-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy Glow Love this stuff. My skin looks glowing/healthy and shows off muscle tone. A little goes a long way. Also, let the body butter set for a few minutes before changing into clothing. I also run my hands through my hair and it gives it a nice shine. 05-12-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by So Disappointed In my opinion, this body butter is definitely not worth the money...smells horrible, it is a terrible color, so thick that it magnifies every wrinkle on my hands, it leaves a heavy wax feeling on my skin and the worst part is it comes off on your clothes. I watched the info commercial...she clearly stated it would not rub off on clothes ...this is not true. So disappointed. 05-04-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lousy I just purchased two of these jars--why?? because I love the products I have used before. I decided to try this one. First--it is too dark for those with fair skin. Secondly--I had to apply more than I usually do to get the moisture. By doing so--it came off on my white blouse, on my pants and actually did not look nice at all. 05-02-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smell I love what it does for my skin but the scent is terrible. Hubby said I smell rancid. 04-26-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by What a Mess! I bought this in the super size- hoping for a little color and argan oil benefits for my skin. Well, color was fine, skin felt great but this stuff is a mess. It came off all over my clothes. I hope my shirt isn't ruined!!! So sad. 04-25-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by Operative word is "illuminizing" Let me preface this review with a profile: I am a 63-year old with very pale dry skin who loves Josie Maran products and have been happy with most all of the ones I've purchased. This one was a miss for me. Loved the fact it gives me a slightly darker glow that looks lovely ~ so long as you stay indoors ~ but the minute you step outside, it looks like someone dumped a can of glitter all over you. This product is great for those with perfect skin, but if you have age spots or any sun damage, this product highlights every bump, age spot, and flaw you might have. If this cream was formulated like a bronzer to make your skin darker, but without the illuminizing feature, it would be perfect for those of us who hate the hassle and after-effects of self-tanning but wanted the temporary effect of making the skin look darker and glowing. (The argon oil would serve that purpose all by itself, you don't need the glitter). I will keep it because there is alot of product for the money and it does look great worn indoors ~ just realize if you don't have perfect skin and wear this product outside on a sunny day, you are going to look ridiculous. 04-22-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ugly shine This may be whipped but it went on as if you were putting peanut butter on your skin. It's the ugliest color or shine I have ever put on my skin and it rubbed off on my clothes. I would never buy it again or recommend it to anyone. Even my foot doctor couldn't believe what I had on my feet. 04-20-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by beware--stains sorry--- had to send this back as it stains everything. where's the white body butter which I loved?? please bring it back!!! 04-08-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too Greasy I was expecting the original body butter but with a hint of color. I have the original (white and creamy) and love it. Absorbs easily and not greasy. This stuff is way too greasy for me. Had to send back. 04-08-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst Argan Body Butter Ever I thought this would just give skin a nice illuminated glow, boy was I wrong. There is too much bronzing in this...did not expect so much. The glow is artificial looking too. Does not absorb like her other products. You must be very careful not to get any on your clothing as it stays on the fabric. I have tried lots of Josie Maran's products and liked them...this one not so much. Sorry, but I have to return this one. 04-03-16
