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 5 out of 5 by LOVE THIS!!!!! I bought the Vanilla Pear Illuminizing Body Butter in the super size a few months ago. I LOVE IT. It gives my legs just enough of a "glow" that my legs look a lot tanner than they are! The fragrance is not too strong, but strong enough that people comment on how good I smell. :-) I wish I had ordered more and in other fragrances because now the super size is not available!!! 07-22-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by Love the original but not this so much. I absolutely LOVE the original body butter but this one left a sticky heaviness feel on my skin and made my skin look dull. I get tanned in the summer and it still looked bad. I HIGHLY recommend the regular body butters by Josie Moran but not this one....sorry! 07-19-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed I was somewhat pleased by the bronzing effect but it definitely will rub off on anything, including clothes! It also has a terrible scent. 07-16-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by TOO Glittery I was hoping this product would give me the look of hydration and glow but not so. There is a difference between a subtle glow and then looking at your skin and seeing specs of glitterly looking substance. I knew if I put this on and went outside, it would be very obvious I had put something on my skin to illuminize it. I don't know about the transfer to clothing because I didn't get that far. I put it on, saw the specs of glitter (or whatever that shiny particle was) and put it back in the box and returned it immediately. 07-14-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not sure!!! Needs better smell or no smell at all The smell is horrible its like plastic/ burn. Where's the vanilla peach??? (not even close.) I think at first it makes your skin super sticky which I hate. Once it sinks in which takes a long time it makes your skin feel amazing. It is messy though, so for me it is just OK. Improve the smell and now were talking. A little does go a long way or will be rubbing for days. Be careful with this one, it can get everywhere. I like the idea of this ,but it needs improvement. You will get results with this product no doubt but you will stink doing it, and your probably have to mask the smell. It that really worth the top dollar amount for an 8 oz jar of stink nope!!!Tub of yuck! The sparkle stays on your skin it really doesn't wash off. Just be aware of it may not be for everyone. 07-14-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This I am not sure why everyone is talking so badly of this product. I absolutely love it and I am very picky about what I use. I also rarely take time to write a review but feel I need to as this is getting a bad wrap. I love using it in the summer as it provides a great glow. I never thought of it as a tanning/bronzing product but something that offers a shimmer. I think it smells fine as well. I have never had problems with it transferring to my clothes either. So glad I decided to give this a try. 07-12-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed This is probably the worst item I've bought from QVC. The 'bronze' is barely noticeable, the little shiny bits on my arms look silly, and the smell is blah. I wish I had returned it but kept thinking I'd get used to it. Do NOT buy it....it comes off on your clothing, too! 07-08-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what I expected When they were displaying it on tv, Josie said it smells amazing and it will soak right into your skin and not come off even after you shower and that the tan would last for days. All of that was false. The smell wasn't that great and it smelt even worse on me as the day went on. Every time I leaned on my legs , I looked at my hands and they were all oily looking and goldish, I had to keep washing my hands. If one water droplet hit my arm, the "tan" would literally come right off, so now I have a half tan arm and then my regular skin tone spotted everywhere. I took a shower and I came out looking pale again, even though she said the tan would stay. Just really disappointed all around. It was a gift for me too. 07-01-16
