Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47

First of all, SPF 47 seemed a little strange to me...right?  I've never seen an SPF 47 before...I don't think.

Anyway...

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.

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47, $32.

Thursday's Fab Five

This. Smells. AMAZING...I've even gotten compliments from my friends.  Papaya Sunset is from the spring 2015 Hawaiian Five Collection, so it probably won't be around forever.

My Mom bought me this a couple of years ago, I have it on my countertop and I love looking at it.  It's the perfect home accent, and box signs are so trendy right now, I know Barnes & Noble has a lot of them.

Trader Joe's Popcorn with Herb & Spices
New. Favorite. Snack.  I never would've bought it if my typical Movie Theatre Popcorn was in stock, but it wasn't...so...I had to buy this.  Thank gawd I did, because I'm obsessed!

essie 'Tart Deco' Nail Polish
On my nails this week!  Super punchy, summery, and fun.  GET IT.

NARS 'Mata Hari' Blush
I found this in my makeup trunk and completely forgot I how much I loved it.  The pigment is amazing & it's matte, which works so much better for me with work.  I'll do a lengthier review soon!

Budget Beauty: Nivea Touch of Renewal

As spring blooms it's important to start getting your skin warm weather ready.  I've officially pulled out all my sundresses and tucked away my heavy winter sweaters, so now it's time to get my skin in gear.

Nivea Touch of Renewal


Nivea's Touch of Renewal Lathering Body Scrub is the perfect drugstore buy to scrub and cleanse away that winter skin and let your summer skin shine.  You can even use it as part of your daily shower routine.

The thing I love about this product the most is how incredibly gentle it is- I use it mainly on the shoulders and chest area because of it's fine exfoliation and a main ingredient is Vitamin E, which is great for anti-aging and smoothing the skin.  Sometimes we forget how important it is to have a chest/ neck beauty regimen, that part of the body shows aging quickly!!

As far as scent goes, it's a very clean and light scent...nothing overpowering or too fragrance-y.

Body scrubs can be expensive, but Nivea Touch of Renewal does an amazing job at the perfect price point of about $6!
