WHAT: Josie Maran Cosmetics is an organic argan oil based line of natural, nontoxic, and eco-friendly beauty products, created by supermodel Josie Maran.


WHY: Made with 100% pure organic Argan Oil (commonly referred to as “liquid gold” or “The Gold of Morocco”), whichis an incredibly rich source of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It has astonishing healing, conditioning and anti-aging properties to keep your skin and hair nourished and strong. Argan Oil is not only a “superfood” for the skin and hair but for the whole body. Josie Maran Cosmetics is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates (chemicals commonly used in beauty products to prevent the growth of bacteria/fragrance, that are known to have cancer causing and hormone disrupting effects on the human body).

My favorite Josie Maran product is the Tinted Moisturizer… I wear this daily and love that it’s moisturizing (+ natural SPF!), gentle on my skin, and gives a nice sheer “glowing” tint without feeling cakey.

WHERE: Available online at Josie Maran, or at Sephora stores (online and in store).

THE VERDICT: I am a longtime lover of Josie Maran Cosmetics because of the quality ingredients and the way they leave my sensitive skin feeling moisturized but never clogged (which a lot of oil-based products can do).

Here are a few of my favorites:


Argan Oil

This legendary, lightweight oil, grown organically in Morocco, is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Use it as a fast absorbing daily moisturizer, or to heal and condition everything from cuticles to split ends (I love putting this on the ends of my hair before bed/washing). Plus it is 100% organic! Housed in a recyclable glass bottle.


Daily Moisturizer with SPF 40+

This natural formula physically blocks UVA rays that can cause up to 80% of premature aging. It also blocks the harmful UVB rays we encounter on sunny days or at the beach. Unlike traditional sun blocks, this natural formula is infused with Josie’s signature ingredient, Argan Oil, which repairs and reverses damage caused by the sun, fights sign of aging and improves skin tone for a radiant, renewed complexion.


Bear Naked Wipes

Wipe off makeup and dirt nature’s way, with a blend of natural and healthy ingredients including aloe vera, cucumber, and vitamin E. Free of fragrance, parabens, and petrochemicals, these luxuriously soft wipes are kind to tender eyes and skin and are biodegradable. Leave your skin feeling nourished and refreshed!
