Josie Maran SPF 47 Sunscreen

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47

Everyone needs sunscreen and it is such an important and necessary step in my daily routine. Sunscreen can help prevent skin cancer by protecting our skin from the sun's harmful Ultraviolet rays. The American Association of Dermatology recommends that everyone should use a Broad-spectrum sunscreen that provides protection against UVA and UVB rays. Your sunscreen should be SPF 30 or higher. That's where the Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 comes in.

Packaging and Ingredients

There are so many options to choose from and sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the information out there. I want to make sure my sunscreen protects me and I also want one that uses safe ingredients. So since I had used Josie Maran’s Argan Oil for years, with positive effects, I figured I should give the Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer a shot. I have been a loyal customer of this sunscreen for years now. I also use it as a face sunscreen for my kids.

Packaging

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 comes packaged in a glass bottle with a pump. The pump mechanism works great . I need about 2 to 3 pumps to cover my face and neck.

Formula

The key ingredients are  Zinc Oxide 9.4% and Titanium Dioxide 5.9% which provide sunscreen protection. This sunscreen also has 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil which hydrates and moisturizes skin with antioxidants and vitamin E. One of the ingredients mentioned is SunBoost ATB which supports sun protection while conditioning and nourishing the skin. Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer also has Jojoba which smooths and softens the skin and Green Tea which nourishes for a youthful-, radiant-looking skin.

Shades 

The Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 comes in a tinted formula and a non tinted formula. I use the regular non-tinted version. The regular moisturizer is lightweight and milky looking but does not leave a white cast on me.

My Experience

I wear sunscreen daily, regardless of whether I am going to be outdoors or indoors. I put on sunscreen even if my makeup has SPF in it. This is my tried and tested daily sunscreen. It is easy to apply and absorbs well. I love the idea that this sunscreen/moisturizer has an Argan oil base. My skin tone is medium and this does not leave a white cast/tint on it at all. If it is completely rubbed in I get no white cast, just dewy skin.

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 has a natural, pleasant fragrance. It disappears a few minutes after applying the sunscreen/moisturizer. The smell is not overpowering and it does not bother me. This does feel a little greasy at first, but not more than any other sunscreen. I can wear makeup over this without any issues. If you prefer a more matte look, you can apply any setting powder or finishing powder you use.

Overall, I love this! It looks great under makeup and does not pill, nor does it leave a white cast. A winner in my book!

Pros
  • Paraben free, gluten free, GMO free and cruelty free. Has the Clean at Sephora seal.
  • Great under makeup
  • Does not leave a white cast, absorbs well, blends easily and is a chemical free broad spectrum SPF 47 moisturizer.
Cons
  • The fragrance could bother some people. But it's a natural fragrance that disappears fast.
  • If you prefer a matte look you will have to use a powder over it.
Where to Buy

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer costs $34 for 2oz/60 ml and can be found at Ulta and Amazon.

Give this a try if you want a lightweight moisturizer with SPF which is safe for all skin types. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the last 3 years.
