Josie Maran Nourishing Argan Oil Skincare Collection

Good Afternoon #BeautyBagDolls I am very excited to bring you a review of Josie Maran Nourishing Argan Oil Skincare Collection. This is a beautifully packaged 4 piece kit that will keep you skin looking and feeling really soft and supple. Included in this is kit is the Argan Cleansing Oil, Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment, Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter and 100% Pure Argan Oil. I was so excited to try this kit out because two of the product I never tried before and the other two are two that I love and the sizes are perfect to take everywhere with me. Visit Josie Marans website to purchase these goodies.
My 4 skincare must haves for hydrated skin from Josie Maran Cosmetics! Argan Oil from this brand is a must have!

The first product in the Josie Maran Nourishing Argan Oil Skincare Collection kit is the Argan Cleansing Oil, while I have used Josie Maran cleansing product in the past I have never used it in this form and it is so wonderful. It is different in a good way compared to any other cleanser I have ever used. It is not greasy or drying which is such a must for me because right now my usually oily skin has become so dry and when I apply this to my face and then wet it, it because a rich creamy milk that melts away all my hard core long wear makeup without stripping it. The Argan cleansing oil also feels so good and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I also must say it is self heating which really helps hydrate your skin while removing all of the makeup and dirt of the day. The next product is the Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment which is a serum and right now it is the only serum I have been using. With my dry winter skin I always reach for the Josie Maran  Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Serum and I have loved this serum for a while now in fact I have reviewed it previously for you here.

The next product in the this great kit is the Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter. I am new to this and I was excited to try and for good reason. After I use the cleanser and the serum I like to follow up with a great moisturizer and for the first time I get to use Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter and it truly feels like a dream cream. Since this is so new to me I learned that Argan oil is whipped to perfection to create a lightweight yet luxuriously rich and hydrating face cream. Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter is formulated with argan oil, which nourishes skin with essential fatty acids and vitamin E, and a blend of watermelon seed oil, shea butter, and fresh cucumber extract, that work together to leave skin feeling soft, smooth, and glowing. The Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter is so hydrating without being greasy it is almost hard to believe it is packed with everything you face needs to thrive and if your like me you can say good by to uneven texture because this face butter truly helped me even out my skin tone. After a week the texture of my skin was more even and after one application my skin looked so plump I was floored. After about 10 days the lines around my eyes were diminished. I am in love with this face butter and combining everything in this kit makes my results seem like magic when all it is, is everything is 100% argan oil from Josie Maran. The final product in this kit is the largest and it is a bottle of  100% Pure Argan Oil I have reviewed this in the past and I am a big believer in agran oil. I love to put it everywhere. From my face to my feet and every part of my skin in between. It hydrates your dry arms and elbows to nourishing your face, neck and décolletage. I love it on my dry legs, knees, ankles and feet. It is also great to put on top of the Whipped Argan Oil Face Butter.  For even more information read my review here.

All of these Josie Maran products individual are a 5 $$$$$ but grouped together they are off the chart amazing. My skin is balanced and I  which is not something I can say often! LOVE this skincare so much!

Extra Love From Anna: I want to thank Josie Maran and her amazing PR team that sent me these great products to try out for all of you! I look forward to continuing to work with Jessica and being able to review more great Josie Maran products in the new year! Thanks so much!

Coco & Co Coconut Oil for Beauty

Hello #BeautyBagDolls today I am very excited to be bringing you a review from an awesome company called Coco & Co they are the experts in the purest virgin coconut oil and over the past few months I have become a huge fan of coconut oil for beauty and what they were kind enough to send me is their coconut oil for beauty of course. I was sent the 8 ounce Best Seller Bestie Jar and the 2 ounce Mini Jar. These two are the perfect size for me and right now I am going to traveling to see family and for work so the 2 ounce mini jar is going with me everywhere whereas the 8 ounce Best Seller Bestie Jar is moving from my bathroom to my night stand so I can use it on my cuticles and legs before bed as wells as my hair to tame static and on my eye lashes to promote their growth.
I am never with out my Coco & Co coconut oil. It is a beauty bag must that comes in convenient sizes for you to take with you on the go when needed.

Coconut oil has endless possibilities of uses and the Coco & Co coconut oil is "made from freshly pressed coconut milk, chilled and separated, this coconut oil remains raw and heat is never used in it's processing." This is clean and 100% raw coconut oil. I find that the scent to very light and fresh which is something that I love. It is so pure that it helps sooth my sensitive skin. My face gets the perfect amount of hydration it plumps my skin and is glowing! The moisture lasts all day when using the Coco & Co coconut oil for beauty. This has also worked a miracle on my dry hair and scalp. The weather has turned to be so cold and my hair has responded by being so dry that it almost hurts. Twice a week I have used this as a hair mask getting it into my scalp and down to the ends of my hair and leaving it in for about an hour and rinsing with shampoo as usual and my hair has turned around in literally one treatment. No more dry hair and static are gone for good. I only do this twice a week and my hair has completely gone back to normal but with added shine. In all honesty the Bestie Jar has become my beauty best friend as well as my travel jar because I have taken it with me. The Coco & Co Coconut Oil is a beauty bag must for all and gets a 5 $$$$$ for of course how good it is for you and for the fact that its just one product that is 100% coconut oil that you can use in so many places for your beauty!

Extra Love from Anna: I am in love with all of the products that were sent to me from Coco & Co.  The two jars of coconut oil that were sent to me are amazing!   I hope to collaborate with Coco & Co again in the future and I want to Thank them for their kindness!
