Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 with Argan Oil, .5oz
Waaaay too oily!
I have really dry skin and was excited to try this tinted moisturizer because of reviews I had read about how great it is. I used it twice, once with a primer and once without and it is WAY too oily for even my skin (which flakes and looks reptile-like with most products. VERY DRY)... I felt like it never sunk into my skin, it just sat on top of my skin all day and every time I touched my face a little bit came off. I also tried putting a powder over and it just looked cakey. Another thing is this broke me out like CRAZY. I RARELY gets zits, I usually put olive oil and almond oil on my face as a moisturizer too, so my face is used to oils.Also, I read many reviews that talked about how great of coverage this has and I have to disagree I think it has light coverage. I know as a tinted moisturizer its not suppose to have full coverage but I felt like I had to conceal every mark on my face because this was soo sheer. I am sending it back!
The consistency was way too thick and smells like sunblock. Lastly, the size of the product was offensive. For what I paid I'd expect a bit more product. Only upside was the little bottle of argan oil. Contemplating sending this back, however.
Very nice! Color important....
I am waitlisted on the Light color, but I tried to use the Fair, as I am usually able to use both fair and light colors in most products. I generally fall right in between. The Fair is way too pale for me and I need to return it. Only use the Fair if you are Nicole Kidman-fair. This product can go on a little heavy at first, but then it blends in with your skin and really looks great. Give it 30 minutes of so before you judge! Perhaps it is the oil in it that gives your skin a real glow. I am going to try it on the tops of my hands as well. It seems to be quite beneficial for my skin, as well as protecting and covering flaws. I sure hope the Light comes back into stock for me. The 30 SPF is great for me in the summer! It is also a good product for the dry winter months. Thanks Josie!
I so wanted to love this. Unfortunately, it doesn't absorb well on my skin. Its also a little heavier than I had hoped. I started using it over the weekend - today its Tuesday and I have bumps all over both cheeks. (And I normally have very clear skin). I used to use 100% Pure's tinted moisturizer which I LOVED, but it's impossible to get, even on their website. Sadly, tomorrow this goes back.
Really wanted to like this stuff, but can't. The tinted moisturizer that is...the oil is great and I will never go without it. In fact, that's the only reason I'm not sending this back. I want to keep the little bottle of oil to refill with my bigger bottle of oil.
The moisturizer is really, really cakey. You put it on and can see it in your pores. I bought it because I was hoping it DIDN'T look like a regular foundation. Unfortunately, it does. If you're not into heavy foundations, skip this one. BUT, definitely get the Argan Oil itself. Josie really has something there!
Great idea...truly wanted to like it, BUT it smelled just like suntan lotion, and I really don't like that smell. Sssooo disappointed!
I just received it today and was so excited to use it. Just as Josie said, it has full coverage. Covered my imperfections and it doesn't look caked on. I also love that it came with the Argan Oil. It is wonderful also. I have combination skin and was afraid that it would be too oily for the oily parts of my face, but it is not.. I also purchased the Josie Maran Luminous Hydrating Liquid Powder with Brush to go along with this. And again, as Josie said that you can feel the burst of coolness. Most finishing powders make you look dry and old, but this powder makes you look fresh and natural. So glad that I have bought these products! Can't wait to purchase the others!
This is a great tinted moisturizer
This is a great tinted moisturizer just the right amount of coverage only thing is that it makes my eyes cry. Her untinted moisturizer does not do this to my eyes. I will not reorder for this reason.
I like this tinted moisturizer but I can only find my color (espresso)at sephora. Qvc why don't you offer anything to deeper skined women of color we watch also!
Please bring on Auto Delivery!
I love this product, a full coverage tinted moisturizer, but can't always find it available. Please put on A-D!
I have used EVERY brand's tinted moisturizer and this is my favorite by far. I use tan and love the color. Has great coverage but melts into skin since it is a moisturizer so within an hour or so it looks like you are wearing no makeup but you are still covered. LOVE. Want in another TSV.
I received this tinted moisturizer kit about a week ago as a gift. Just right for my 70+ yo skin. Wonderful coverage and no sinking in wrinkles. Easily the best foundation I have ever tried in my life. My daughter is going to send for this as well. I was ready to give up ever finding something that looks so good.
