Happy Thursday’s Fab Five! Are you ready for fall? I’m so ready for fall. I think I’m too ready for fall. It’s still hot here in D.C. but we’ve seen some glimmer of a cooler season ahead, and I cannot wait. While I patiently wait, here are some of my current end of summer fab faves.
First of all, SPF 47 seemed a little strange to me…right? I’ve never seen an SPF 47 before…I don’t think.
The Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 came in the limited edition Winter Dreams holiday pack, and I was super excited to try it out since I’ve never used Josie Maran skincare products before, and this product is an Allure Best of Beauty winner. I was a little surprised by the consistency of the product the first time I used it. It felt, and looked, more like a sunscreen than what an “AM moisturizer” typically feels and looks like.
This product is super lightweight and even thought it looks sunscreen-y it absorbed easily and quickly and left a great base for makeup application. I was a tad nervous because it seemed a bit thin, and again sunscreen-y, so I wasn’t sure how hydrating it would be, but it worked well for me- I didn’t have a that greasy feeling you can sometimes feel with higher SPF products.
Added bonus: the amount of antioxidants packed into this AM moisturizer, which is a part of Maran’s trademarked SunBoost ATB blend.
All in all I’m not sure I would repurchase this product, I loved the high SPF and antioxidant aspects, and I’m happy I tried it, but I think I’m more in love with some other AM moisturizers.
