Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturiser SPF 40

by Megs

After falling so profoundly in love with Josie Maran Argan Oil, I was really excited to try the Argan Daily Moisturiser SPF 40. It’s a broad spectrum SPF and I don’t totally understand what that means except that it’s the “good” kind of sunscreen.

Aside from being a ridiculously rich, jet-setting model, Josie Maran sounds like someone I have a lot in common with. She started her brand in order to make natural, chemical-free, safe beauty products available to women.

The Josie Maran website says this:

As a truly natural beauty, Maran realized there was something missing in the world of makeup. Existing eco-friendly, natural beauty products lacked the sophistication and level of luxury she craved. It was hard to find luxurious products that were pure, gentle, nontoxic, eco-friendly–and sophisticated. Maran thought if she sought out products that met these high standards, then other women concerned with their health and the earth must want them too. So Josie Maran Cosmetics was born.

There’s also this nifty little sound bite which is on all of the Josie Maran packaging: “I believe in balance.
I believe that doing the right thing can be glamorous. I believe in beauty without the baggage.”
I know this post is about the Argan Daily Moisturiser SPF 40 but I want to take a second to say again just how much I love the Argan Oil. I wanted to love the Daily Moisturiser every bit as much. I really did. And there’s not one thing wrong with it. It is a perfectly ok moisturiser. The smell is ok, the consistency is fine, it moisturises satisfyingly. But…if I want a perfectly ok moisturiser, I can easily get one from any drugstore. I ordered this from Sephora ($27 cad). I had high hopes for this product and it is just ok. There’s nothing wrong with it, it just didn’t wow me like the Argan Oil did. I won’t repurchase this item but I will continue to try other products from the Josie Maran line. I like her ideals, they are in line with my own. If you want to try this moisturiser, I say go for it. You may love it.
