Rated 5 out of 5 by consuela just what I was looking for
I needed a moisturizer with sun protection but didn't like any I'd found. Josie's makes my face feel dewy soft and of course provides the needed protection, very important to my fair skin.
I use the Nirvana all the time- day and evening before I moisturize. I tried softeners like this before but appreciate the fine mist spray the delivery system gives this one. (The others were splash on and there was to much waste.)
I am happy with Josie's line, as a woman of a certain age- it works great!

I loved Shawn’s presentation on this. She mentioned reading reviews for a while and that this deal put her over the edge. Me too!
But, the products left me dissatisfied.
The rose water spray is all trendy right now and I love the concept. I love that this is made in the USA and not “imported” like most Q items these days. Go Josie! But, in the demonstration Josie mentioned that the spray helps dampen the skin to get it ready for skincare – like a sponge. The concept makes sense but execution not so much. I lightly sprayed but my moisturizer or the Protect + Perfect just kind of slid all over. I do like the smell but not what the product does.
Now, the Protect + Perfect. I am firm on moisturizer having SPF and they are usually in the 30’s. I was excited to see an SPF of 47 on this so that’s the main reason I bought it. I had hopes it wasn’t like all other SPF moisturizers that make my face feel sticky. My face looks all sweaty and feels sticky. It doesn’t sink in – maybe that’s the zinc.
So, neither product worked for me. I hate to spend the money to return but I’d rather that than have items I won’t use under my sink.

I love the Protect and Perfect! I have had it before and was excited it now came in this set because I wanted to try the mist. The Protect and Perfect moisturizes nicely and adds a subtle glow to my face/dewy look. I always get compliments when I wear it. I have light skin (almost fair) and it does look like it will be too dark but it's not. It's amazing!
The nirvana mist is the half of this set that left me a little unsatisfied. First, I didn't care for the scent but if i loved the product, I would have put up with it because the scent doesn't linger. As Josie directed, I would spray my face liberally then put on argan light or another moisturizer. When all was dry and set on my face, I feel like my moisturizer worked less than it normally does. The mist is supposed to enhance your moisturizer and I felt the effect was the opposite.
**QVC, please fix the picture! The description describes the Protect & Perfect (a tinted shade) and that is what I received. But, the picture shows moisturizer w/SPF that is white. It is confusing and I honestly didn't know which was going to come in my shipment.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NETBOOK FAN My new favorite face moisturizer
I ordered this so I could try the face moisturizer and Nirvana was a bonus. I love this lotion. It feels so wonderful on my skin, I love the tint, and it moisturizes wonderfully. I'd been wanting a Josie Maran argan oil product I could use on my face in the daytime and I finally have it (even the argan light was too oily, to my dismay). In addition to my whole face, I use this under my eyes and I don't have my mascara running off, but I do use waterproof mascara. I like the Nirvana too but I wouldn't order it again unless it was a package like this--and I have this on auto-delivery so I will be able to continue getting both as a pair!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Secky Bue Love this pairing of Josie's products
Have purchased before in other pairings of Josie's offerings and these two are my favorites for this 68 year old. My skin is light in color and dry and these two fit the bill to a tee! Love them.

Sad have to return the Nirvana mist makes me cough, it also has a strange scent?? The protect & perfect moisturizer is to thick and hard to spread evenly. I will stick to using WEN replenish mist on my face.

This is the most amazing product. The mist smells so good and the the moisturizer is just to die for. I am having weight loss surgery in two weeks and I wanted to find a routine that is going to help with the fact that I am going to lose certain things that will make me look older. Josie is a blessing. I love her products and now I am even more excited because this is what my skin will need to stay young and healthy looking...
