Hi IMBBians,

This is my first product review, I am nervous, hope I do justice to the product. I have a problem with sunscreen; actually I had problems with sunscreen, but I am super excited to introduce this product which completely changed my view about sunscreens. To find out why I am super excited, continue reading:

Product Details:

“I think sunscreen is good and lightweight, non-greasy, chemical free sunscreen that moisturizes while protecting the skin is even better. My Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 features green tea, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and innovative sunboost ATB, resulting in powerful sun protection. Not to mention all the benefits you’d expect from argan oil infused daily moisturizer: skin-nourishing, texture-smoothing, and radiance-boosting, protection+ beautifying = bliss.”  It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phathalates.


$32.00 for 60 ml/ $54.00 for 120 ml.

It comes in an amber color bottle with pump system to deliver the right amount of product.  Since this product is formulated without parabens and sulfates (chemical preservatives), the amber color of the bottle increases the shelf life of the product.  The packaging is such that it wouldn’t leak, it reminds me of cough syrup though.

My Experience with Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47:

I have used so many different types of sunscreens.  Most of them made me look dark with a white cast; some sunscreens gave me breakouts.  Josie Maran is famous for her argan oil products.  I have used her argan oil light version and hair serum, both of them worked great for me, so when I first spotted this moisturizer in Sephora, I want to give it a try, but my previous experiences with sunscreen made me think twice.  One day, I went to Sephora and asked them for a sample.  After using the sample, I bought the 60 ml bottle.  This one works for me – it doesn’t leave a white cast.  The best thing about it is that you don’t need a moisturizer above; it has all good properties of argan oil.  Another great thing about this moisturizer is that it fades away marks and imparts glow to the skin.  This is completely a lightweight formula, which gets absorbed easily into the skin.

SunBoost ATB is a unique blend of anti-oxidants, skin soothers, and hydrators that work together with natural sunscreens to boost sun protection while conditioning and nourishing the skin. It uses less amount of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide (which can be heavy on the skin and leaves white cast).

You can see that it doesn’t leave a white cast in sun light as well as with flash, so it photographs well.
