At one point in my makeup life I’d have told you Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer was my HG but really that’s changed courtesy Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer ($38).
When it comes to base products, bb creams, and foundations I’m a cheater. I’m really not faithful to any single product because I really love the chase of discovering new products especially BB and CC Creams. I love trying new ones out and finding ones to love.
So it does come as a surprise that I use Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer more often than not!
Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer is a lightweight, creamy formulated moisturizer with a hint of tint and an SPF 30.
Formulated with pomegranate oil and goji berry and natural papaya extract this is a gently hydrating formula that can be used any skin types.
Anytime SPF is added to a product I always feel like it completely changes the consistency of it, makes it a bit runnier and watery. Josie’s Tinted Moisturizer stays delightfully creamy and rich in texture which is one reason I adore it. Granted, I have drier skin so I don’t believe this or any Tinted Moisturizer is going to take the place of my daily moisturizer but I rely on it for the extra moisture and the lightweight coverage even though it contains Argan Oil. I think Argan Oil is a little intimidating because you might think the formula is too rich but really it isn’t as hydrating as one would think with such an ingredient in the formula.
I don’t have major skin issues. I only need lighter coverage that will even out and brighten my complexion and this seals the deal for both of those problems. This brightens, evens my complexion, and sets a beautiful bare skin finish for makeup. I use year round but now that Spring is on the way and Summer to soon follow you’ll likely be lightening up your makeup base usage. This is an excellent lightweight base that creates a truly flawless canvas for makeup!
I do wish at some point that Josie will bring back her Protect and Perfect Argan Daily Moisturizer because as wonderful as this formula is I still prefer the consistency and finish of that product!
Either way, if you want a creamy no nonsense tinted moisturizer which I consider a truly top pick in the TM world I’d head in for a purchase of Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer.
