Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 with Argan Oil, .5oz
didn't like at all!!!
I love argon oil, but this is the pits!!! It came out of the tube thick, like toothpaste. It went on very heavy on my face. I felt like I was wearing 2 inches of makeup. It was easy to see that I was wearing "heavy makeup." Back it went!!
I Like It
I like to use this on my arms and chest. It covers and illuminates the skin giving a fresh, Dewey appearance. I adore argon oil and will never be without it.
I did not like this moisturizer. It did not go on easily and it felt dry. I have used other moisturizers that felt silky going on but this sure did not.
Love but a little messy
I have used this now 4 times and have color not too deep but I look healthy. I love that it has NO odor and is made with things that are healthy for my skin. I also like it does not give a tight feeling to my face after using it. My ONLY complaint is that it is a little messy as you put it on the applicator. I got some on my hands And it did stain so had to scrub to get it off, I have just a natural tan with out the harmful rays of the sun, thank you Josie for creating another great product. I am so glad I am on auto delivery,
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.
