Product Review; "Josie Maran Argan Oil Moisturizing Stick"
Argan Oil is one of the better emollients suitable for just about any skin type and has experienced a tremendous amount of popularity in the last few years. But with good reason.
So much so that Josie Maran Cosmetics has built it's brand on the ingredient for it's healing, soothing and regenerative properties as well as it's ability to be so effective and remain on the "organic" spectrum of makeup. Originally, Josie Maran offered it in it's natural liquid form but with the demand in market, they've released Argan Oil Moisturizing Stick. Still just as effective as the serum, this stick seems to serve more as a convenience. Easily rolled up you can use it on lips, dry patches on hands, around sensitive areas of the body or all over face and under eyes. Though it is a bit dense, used sparingly and massaged into skin, you'll find that a little goes a long way and will last you quite a long time.
Ideally, I've kept it in my kit for touch ups in winter months around noses and flaky areas. Once blended in with a brush, foundation can go on top of it to maintain a dewy glow that will soak up and hold all day without getting slick. With Summer quickly approaching, I'm getting accustomed to it for it's ability to soothe burns from sun exposure and the natural antioxidant properties are great for reducing inflammation and UV damage.
Add me to the reason for it's popularity.
