Get Sunkissed Without the Risk: Josie Maran Bronzing Argan Oil ($52.00 for 1.7 oz.)

Josie Maran has created Bronzing Argan Oil to keep you get that sunkissed look without the sun. It’s a lightweight moisturizer that can be used all over–your body, face, and even hair. I like it on legs over all else, but the “bronze shimmer” is subtle enough to be used on the face. It’s really a natural glow, a bit bronzing but more brightening, than anything else, too. It has an earthy orange-y citrus scent, which I do like more than the scent of Josie Maran’s original Argan Oil. It’s worked so far on my acne-prone skin without incident (yay!), and I think those of you who have great skin already, this is a nice way to enhance it without covering anything up, too.

Ingredients: Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Silica, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil May Also Contain:Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Tin Oxide.

Josie Maran’s products are formulated to be more organic and natural. Her Argan Oil products contain 100% Organic Argan Oil. It’s Earth Month, so for those looking to go be a little more natural in their beauty regimens might want to check out Josie Maran’s line of products. I like that the Josie Maran website offers detailed information about ingredients, packaging, and a great symbol key to put it all in perspective.

    I have used 100% pure Argan Oil on my skin now for 2 yrs. The one i get is shipped from Morocco & i get it from this hippie lady on my block. Until now, this was the only way i could get it. I have acne prone skin & Argan oil has been a savior for me. I know a few older women who use it daily on their skin as a moisturizer & there skin looks impeccable. A friend of mine also uses in on her psoriasis & despite all the prescription medicines she’s been given; nothing clears it up for her but pure Argan oil. Not sure how pure Josie Maran’s version is, but its nice to see this amazing natural oil making it into the mainstream & i’m willing to check it out. Josie’s is pricey however. The 6 oz. bottle i get shipped from Morocco only costs $30 & lasts almost a year.

    Yay! Glad you did a review on this! I have the original argan oil and I LOVE it as well! It definitely has done wonders for my skin. I was very curious about this “bronzing” one. Is it just a bronze shimmer or is it a “self tanner” type product?

    hmmm… sounds good, and I love me some argan oil, but does the shimmer rub off onto your clothes?

    i have been using josie maran’s argan oil for about 6 months now and it is amazing. josie maran makes one without the shimmer too. it will not make you break out and it slowly dissolves into your skin. my face looks fresh and dewy because of its use!! i got it for my mom who has also become addicted to it…her pores have minimized tremendously! i use it also on my hair to control fly aways/frizz. a little goes a long way! definitely worth the money!
