Since starting a family, I’ve been all about simplifying my life, cutting back on excesses and paring down my routines. While my 20’s were a blur of makeup, beauty products, gizmos and gadgets (amongst a few other vices!), my 30’s are all about finding what works well for me and sticking with it. Sometimes I’m just so tired at the end of the day, even the act of washing my face seems like the most tremendous chore (#aintnobodygottimeforthat)! That’s why I rejoiced when I came across Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil. It’s a daily moisturizer, it’s a cuticle treatment, it’s a hair treatment AND it’s all-natural. It’s like the jackpot of beauty in a small 100% recycled glass bottle.
With this crazy winter weather, I’ve been using the oil at night on its own as well as each morning, blended with my regular daytime moisturizer (Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Cream). For those of you poo-pooing the idea of using an oil directly on your face, hear me out. This product just sinks right in and leaves my face looking dewy and fresh, not greasy at all. Any remnants on my hands get immediately rubbed into my cuticles for a double dose of Argan Oil love. All it takes is 4 drops of Argan Oil and my dull, flaky skin is gone, gone, gone (isn’t that a Phillip Phillips song?!). For this, Josie Maran, I am forever grateful. OK, Phillip Phillips, I am grateful for your song too- it’s pretty catchy.
