My newest obsession: Josie Maran Argan products

It takes a lot for a skincare brand to woo me. I am so beyond picky that it’s not even funny. I’m serious. Between all of my chronic conditions and issues (you know, like not being able to handle strong fragrances), I’m like the worst person in the world to please when it comes to skincare. But Josie Maran? ZOMG!


First of all, why haven’t I heard of this brand? It has been sold at Sephora forever and a day and yet I’ve never made attempts to dabble into. This is more of a introduction to the brand. I’ll be back with formal reviews. I’m just so overwhelmingly excited to have come across Josie that I just, I just…I could seriously name my first child Josie.


Okay, I’m kidding. Not really though because Josie is actually an adorable name. So anyway, a while back Sephora was selling a Josie Maran Moroccan Bazaar Argan Skin & Hair Bestsellers kit. It’s not at Sephora anymore, but you can get it from Amazon through Josie Maran. Quick tidbits about the brand:

-Free of synthetic dyes
-Quality packaging…most are housed in glass bottles
-Higher-end brand with a conscience

Let’s just do a quick run through of what came inside…

Whipped Argan Oil in Vanilla Apricot



Sweet, decadent, gently fragranced and moisturizing. This stuff is such a pleasure to use.

100% Pure Argan Oil



The star of the show. I’ve been known to use this oil everywhere; for face, body, hair and nails. It’s such a great oil because it isn’t super greasy but still settles into the skin nicely.

Argan Oil Daily Moisturizer SPF 40



It’s my current moisturizer and it’s wonderful. It doesn’t leave a white cast over my skin and doesn’t feel heavy either.

Argan Oil Hair Serum


I can’t believe I actually fell for this. I choose my hair products wisely and would have never looked at this (because I would assume that it wasn’t made for my hair type) but this serum has all natural fragrances and sinks into my locs nicely.

Argan Cleansing Oil


Haven’t actually given this a spin yet so only time will tell how great it is. I’ve got high hopes!

Argan Balm


A fragrance-free and solid version of the oil. What’s to hate about this. It feels just as great as the oil and I’ve been loving it on my lips.

The dream team…


You can get this set here for $69.99 but stay tuned, I’ll be back with a closer look of some of these products. All I know is Josie Maran = LOVE. I have seen the light, y’all.

    I just bought the 100% Argan Oil a few weeks ago and am in love with it! My skin, my hair….The only problem is that I now want all of her products! I also love the ethics of the company.

    • Brittany

      I knowwww!!! I have that “problem” too. I actually went all crazy on QVC a week or so ago and purchased more argan oil products. Ha!

      • heather

        Oh man, I didn’t know she had products on QVC. You evil and amazing enabler 😉

  • You’ve made me want to try their products! Especially the Argan Oil Daily Moisturizer SPF 40.

    • Brittany

      I am sooooo in love with the moisturizer the most. It’s so lightweight for every day use.

    I love her Argan Oil. I had this rash for over a year. Yes, you read that right – a YEAR. I went through two rounds of antibiotics and a tube of topical ointment. Nothing would work. I received a sample of this in a New Beauty Test Tube. One night my rash was itching so bad I decided to throw it on before bed and see if it would stop the itching. I woke up the next day and my rash was 50% better. I continued to use it and it cleared up within two weeks! Needless to say, I bought a HUGE bottle and I buy it as gifts for all my female friends. I can’t say enough great things about it. I love the moisturizer too (40+). I think the smell is divine.

    • Brittany

      Um…wow! That is one serious testimony! I’ve gotta start spot treating to see how this works with my itchy eczema.

  • Love her moisturizer, love the oil cleanser, love the lip balm in the pot! Also, the hydrating finishing powder she sells on QVC is seriously the most amazing product. I’m pretty much addicted and use it everyday. It’s on waitlist, though, and I had to order more from amazon. I hope this means she’ll be releasing it at Sephora soon…

    • Brittany

      Ah yesss, glad to see that I’m not the only one obsessed with Josie. :)

  • Great post! You are making me really want to buy this set! I’ve only tried the argan oil & shimmer powder from this brand and I love both. I really need to explore this brand more and a set like this seems like a great way to do it.

    • Brittany

      Yep, the set is what got me reallllllly into the brand. It’s the best way to try everything. :)
