Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer

What it is: A lightweight tinted moisturizer with natural broad spectrum SPF 30. What it does: Get everything you love in a sunscreen, foundation, and moisturizer—without the harmful chemicals found in most SPFs. This lightweight formula contains all natural SPF 30 to protect skin from UVA and UVB rays, while the medium coverage instantly corrects skin discoloration and blemishes. Josie's signature ingredient, 100% pure argan oil, is blended with antioxidant powerhouses like pomegranate oil and goji berry and natural papaya extract to hydrate and rejuvenate skin’s appearance. This product is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive and dry. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates - Phthalates What else you need to know: “A good thing, made better: my bestselling, longtime favorite Argan Tinted Moisturizer is made with Argan Oil, so it moisturizes while it protects your skin from UVA and UVB rays. The new and improved version is formulated using an all-natural SPF 30—a rarity, since most foundations with SPF are loaded with chemicals. It sits lightly on your skin, so no clogged pores, and it comes in six shades, at least one of which is sure to suit the new and improved you.”—Josie Maran Shade Conversions: If you loved the previous Argan Tinted Moisturizer, here’s how to find your perfect shade: Crème = Fair 1 Butter = Light 1 Butter = Light 2 Linen = Medium 1 Desert = Medium 2 Espresso = Dark 1   If your previous shade was Butter and you are deciding between L1 and L2, use undertones as a reference: L1 is very close to Butter and works best with cool undertones L2 is suited for neutral to warm undertones.Sephora is the exclusive beauty retailer for this product.

I use my fingers but a good brush would be a foundation brush with the white bristles at the top. Elf has a good cheap version that works just as good as the expensive brand.

I use my fingers. It warms up the product and you can really blend it out so it doesn't look like too much. I'm definitely the type that thinks less is more. Hope that helps. Good luck

Unfortunately no, it is not moisture proof. However I was advised in store to apply a waterproof sunnscreen beneath to help the product's longevity in the summer.

Question
Should I wear a primer with this?
I'm a fair redhead with slight pink undertones and have dry skin only in Winter. I just bought this in light 1 and I do really like it but It never fully absorbes into my skin. Should I use a face primer or am I just using to much?

If you want to but not necessary . You could use a light translucent powder over and spritz a little toner on top

You might be using too much, however you need too if you are using it for you foundation as well. I usually let it sit for about 5-10 minutes and use a setting powder and do not have any issues.

I had the same problem with this. I tried it with different primers and still didn't look right even applying it different ways. I ended up returning it and got the Nars one instead which is amazing with even no primer!!

Question
How is the daily wear for people w/ combination/oily skin?
I use tinted moisturizer, but another brand - it's great on my skin and doesn't leave it greasy or oily looking. I've used Josie's Argan Oil (VERY sparingly at night) and when I wake up in the morning, it's greasy around my nose area.. I'm wondering how this wears during the day for those with combination and oily skin. Will it leave your skin looking greasy and oily as the day progresses? Is this mainly for those with dry skin? Thanks.

Just a little translucent powder will do to touch up.or her color match powder .other than that it has great staying power and the longer you wear it your skin will normalize itself . In other words adjust itself. :)

Fair Shade/Undertone Question
I am fair/light with a little bit of yellow/gold undertone to my skin. (For instance with BE I would use Golden Fair. And for Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer I would use Nude.) I think from what I saw at the store that the lightest color Creme may be for me. The next color is Butter which has now been split into to colors, Light 1 (cool undertones) and Light 2 (warm undertones). My undertones are warm, but I think the Light 2 may be too dark. I was wondering if anyone knew if the Fair/Creme has an undertone to it. I am hoping it is a neutral or yellow based.

I think light 1 would actually be a good match for you. I think fair would be way too light. The light 1 says for neutral to cool undertones but there is a lot of yellow in it - I think it would work well for you.

The huge difference is the SPF ingredients. The original contained chemical sunscreens whereas the new, improved formula incorporates a physical SPF of 30! Apparently the original also had a problem with separating which I haven't seen in this new formula.

The original moisturizer contained chemical sunscreen ingredients. This one only contains physical sunscreens.

Question
I was using the old color, butter, and would like to know which of the two new shades, Light 1 or Light 2, is closest to the old shade of Butter.
The old shade of Butter was a perfect match for my skintone (fair with some freckles) so I want to stay as close to the old shade as possible.

I also used butter which was perfect for my Irish/Italian skin color. Neither 1 nor 2 work for me. They are both too yellow. I am so disappointed in the new product. Good luck finding something new. I've read Ole Henricksen has a tinted moisturizer at the same price point. I might give that a try.
