Go Buy Now: Josie Maran Infinity Oil
It didn’t take long for model Josie Maran to make her mark on the beauty world. Her argan oil-infused skincare and cosmetics are industry favourites (especially among makeup artists who favour natural products), but her latest concoction is my favourite. The new Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil ($28) is proving serious competition to a range of products including rich face cream, illuminizer, petroleum jelly, ointment, and hand cream.
I have dry skin that’s hard to quench, so if I could apply the richest hand cream to my face without the fear of breaking out I would. Luckily, this is even better. A thick gel comes out of the tube, but it warms into an easy-to-apply smooth oil that’s 99% natural (and petroleum-free)! I apply it to my damp face post-cleansing a few nights a week and I swear I can feel it soaking up the moisture. My skin is smooth, hydrated, and positively dewy the next morning.
Aside from dryness, the oil helps with sunburnt, chapped, or post-peel skin as well as ragged cuticles. Mix it into powder blush or eye shadow to turn your favourite colour into a cream formula, pat onto cheeks as a highlighter, or prep your mouth for lipstick. You can even use on split ends or frizz. Needless to say, it’s earned a permanent spot in my makeup bag.
