Review: Josie Maran Argan Oil Daily Moisturizer SPF 40+

I've been on the hunt for a new sunscreen moisturizer. Due to the insufferably hot Texas summer, I haven't spent much time outside, but when I do, even to run errands, I like to have some SPF on my face. Since I don't go through facial sunscreens as fast as body lotions, I was willing to take a chance on something a little more expensive: Josie Maran's Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40+.

  • Absorbs quickly
  • Broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) protection
  • Light, fruity fragrance that dissipates quickly
  • Contains organic ingredients
  • A little goes a long way
  • Pricey per ounce
I was really surprised at how light this moisturizer felt on my skin. It was non-greasy, despite having argan oil as one of the top ingredients. There is a lovely fruity scent that is very light and dissipates quickly, so it won't conflict with your other scents or perfumes. I only needed a tiny amount to cover my face, so the $14 "to go" size will actually last me quite a while (perhaps even through the season). This was great to see, as I often have to throw out large bottles of sunscreen that I can't use up before the expiration date. However, if you plan to use a lot of it, the full size is $54, which is pretty pricey. If you like this moisturizer, I recommend limiting the use to your face if you're on a budget. This product rated a low 2 on EWG's Skin Deep database. It is one of the easiest sunscreen moisturizers to use and felt great on my skin.
