Let my skin rejoice!

Yesterday was a day of site inspections. In event planner world that means I'm either going to see new spaces that have just opened (so I stay fresh) or I'm out looking for something specific. Yesterday's jaunt with my team was about staying on top of our game.

Anyway, as we were headed to our second to last stop in the MPD (Meatpacking District) when we noticed we were about 30 min early and a MIA venue contact. So what's a girl to do? She goes to the new Sephora flagship store for 'research' and to kill some time. This store is supposed to be the pinnacle of a modern and transformative beauty shopping experience. They've taken the vibe of the Meatpacking District and weaved it into the entire store environment utlizing, music, art and technology to tell the story.

I had gotten an email about this store a few weeks back detailing all their conceptual art installations and exclusives so I was excited. *Applause* I am happy to report the store is a sensory oasis!

But there was one product from Josie Maran that I tried in particular that I wanted to share. It has that new super ingredient in it called Argan Oil. I lifted the following from Josie Maran's website: Argan Oil is an all-natural, 100% organic, chemical-free beauty marvel that really works. Produced from the Argan tree in semi-deserts of Morocco, Argan Oil has been used by Moroccan women for centuries for it's nutritional and cosmetic benefits.

Commonly referred to as "liquid gold" or "The Gold of Morocco", Argan Oil is an incredibly rich source of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It has astonishing healing, conditioning and anti-aging properties to keep your skin and hair nourished and revitalized and to keep you looking beautiful from head to toe. Argan Oil is not only a "super food" for the skin and hair but for the whole body.

I'm sure you have seen it as its in like everything!! My  co-worker, Jovanca suggested I try a moisturizer and bronzer (she uses it and was singing their praises) from Josie Maran with Argan Oil and can I just say I'm so happy I did. The Argan Oil bronzer from Josie Maran goes on like silk and gives off the most amazing glow. With a price tag of $52 however, it had to wait right there on its pretty glossy shelf until I get paid next week. Josie Maran isn't paying me but I would totally recommend this bronzer. I like it so much better than my current bronzing powder. And eventhough it has a formulation of an oil it didn't feel heavy at all.

Here's a picture of the product and some of its deets: Josie Maran's Argan Bronzing Oil is the ultimate organic beauty treatment giving you a healthy bronzed glow anytime of year. It can be used on the body, face, and hair.

Try it and let me know what you think and don't say I never gave you nothin' :-)

I discovered Josie Maran products when I had to prep for an NYC trip and fell in love with not only her face wipes but her foundation. I had to use it for a tv thing and my makeup was flawless. I rarely wear foundation but when I do, I reach for this one. It's pricey - yes - but worth every single penny, imo :)
