Josie Maran Argan Moisturizing Stick

Argan Oil, Emu Oil…it’s always sounded like the same thing to me for some reason. I swear the Muse must be so watching too many episodes of The Crocodile Dairies from years ago. Actually Emu Oil is created from the fat of an Emu…oh my god the grossness but supposedly it’s great for your skin.

Anyway, Argan Oil…that one had me puzzling…was there some species of bird out there named an Argan? Sometimes my stupidity knows no bounds. Turns out Argan is actually a tree.

Well duh how was I supposed to know that. What? I never claimed to know alot about trees.

Moral of the story is Josie Maran Argan Oil is the awesome, especially if you sport mega dry skin.

Take the jump to hear about the new version of Josie Maran Argan Oil!

The Muse actually owns the Josie Maran Argan Bronzing Oil, good stuff (review coming soon) so she was kinda tickled that they have a new Argan Moisturizing Stick. It actually debuted today and is available at Sephora for $22 w00t!

So as much as I love the oil formula I must admit the stick does tempt a girl as it seems heaps less mess than an oil. This is a multi-purpose balm so you can use it from head to toe to give a shot to dry skin areas that need a bit of soothing moisture and tender, loving, care.

Chapped lips, dry, patchy cheeks, stinging insect bites, hang nails and cuticles, dry elbows and knees, dry spots between your brows (what? I get that! For serious!)…you name it you can slip a bit of this nourishing balm right on for instant relief. No it won’t clean the house for you, don’t even ask but hey it does everything else! Joy!

Me, I want it. I need all the help I can get in the dry skin department. Josie Maran Argan Moisturizing Stick, sign me up for a case Josie…I could use it.

Anyone try Josie’s regular Argan Oil?

What are you using the ward off evil dry skin?

Oh my gosh the Muse so wants to cozy up to Josie Maran for Earth Day! Have you seen the Josie Maran Earth Day Essentials Green-On-The-Go Kit?

Josie+Maran+Earth+Day+Essentials

Loves it!

Bonus! Jump ahead for a review of Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss!

The Josie Maran Earth Day Essentials Kit includes all full size products aside from the Jose Maran Argan Oil which is mini size! Cool, a steal and a deal! Pretty impressed they are bundling together so many products for a low cost of $48 USD. Economy beauty rocks doesn’t it?

The set includes:

  • Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil
  • Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss in Daring
  • Josie Maran Cleam Blush in Sunrise
  • Josie Maran Mascara
  • Josie Mara Eye Liner

Josie’s line is eco-friendly and organic right down to the packaging! The line is free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and dyes.

I’m simply gagging to get my hands on the kit to review but until I do I at least have the Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss in Daring that’s included with this kit. It deserves it’s own review as it’s mighty good!

When I was little my older sister used to make me cupcakes from cake mix like Betty Crocker to take with me to school for my birthday. I always wanted to lick the spoon after but my mum was fond of telling me if I did I’d get worms, lord….my mum is such a freak. Anyway….what brought that story on? Oh yea..Josie Maran Plumping Lip Gloss tastes like Betty Crocker Cake Mix…for serious it does. Look mum I can lick my lips and eat my gloss and not get worms! It’s deadly tasty which means it probably won’t stick around on your lips very long! Seriously, if I could I’d lick the applicator like a spoon…so sweet and yummie!

The gloss itself has a nice waterY texture minus any tack or stick. The formula does need to be layered on for intensity as one layer won’t cover much so I do suggest going over lips a few times as the effect is stunning if you do. It has a small brush applicator which is nice as it fits snug in the tube without splitting as some brush applicators are known to do. The formula does make lips look fuller and plumper. The shade I tried is Daring which is a shimmering rose that looks almost copper on my lips with hints of brown. It’s a nice warm shade that pairs beautifully with a peach or a bronze shade of blush. It’s not a long wearing gloss because of it’s thin consistency plus the fact that it tastes so good doesn’t help but it does give a high shine to lips and a certain fullness. The formula doesn’t have harmful ingredients nor does it contain parabens so you’re not going to worry whether or not you should be ingesting it.

All in all the gloss is quite nice and I see myself purchasing a few more shades. It’s a generous size, has plenty of shine, offers lips a fuller look, and tastes bloody good! What more could a girl want?

I’m Muse Approving this one for purchase as I really liked it and think it’s worthy of a look!
