Summer is officially here, but it has been scorching hot in Kansas City for about 6 weeks now! Even though it’s hot, it is also humid so I stay inside most of the summer. That means any tan or glow I get comes from beauty products!
I have received the following products for my honest review from Josie Maran, Jergens and Hard Candy:
Josie Maran Argan Liquid Gold Self Tanning Body Oil ($38 USD) — This is a self-tanning body oil that features a blend of 100% Pure Argan Oil for intense nourishment and fast-absorbing 100% Pure Argan Oil Light for a semi-matte finish. Natural DHA helps give skin a healthy, even, natural-looking bronzed glow and the included plush mitt ensures streak-free, blissful application.
I have this in Hippie Beach, which I think is a new scent. It includes notes of lavender, sage, chamomile, and rose. It smells no nice! This has a really nice mitt that makes it easy to blend in. This gives a golden tan that looks so natural, which I love!
Josie Maran Argan Lip Sting Plumping Butter ($23 USD) — The subtle sting and proprietary lip-plumping complex visibly enhance lips for a voluptuous, juicy pout. Soothing manuka honey and moringa butter hydrate for smoother and fuller-looking lips.
The shade I have is Embrace It Honey. It’s a nice nudes shade. I feel a very slight sting when I apply, but it’s not a pure plumper because it also hydrates the lips. It’s nice for a natural, pouty look.
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil ($48 USD) — There’s only one ingredient in this bottle: 100% pure, 100% organic, 100% natural Argan Oil. This nourishes, conditions, and heals. Absorbs easily into skin, intensely hydrating and leaving behind a dewy glow.
It’s always good to have a bottle of Argan oil on hand, and this one is 100% pure so I know it’s good for my skin. I use it to remove makeup, on dry skin patches and on the ends of my hair. Such a multi-tasker!
Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer (#8.99 USD) — Glides smoothly on wet skin to instantly lock in hydration. and I towel dry it in. It is so easy to use and gives a gradual tan. I love that I pat it dry and I can dress and go! And the color doesn’t rub off of my towel or clothes. Plus it has a light, fresh scent. Available for Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan skin tones.
Hard Candy Glitteratzi ($6 USD) — Apply to eyes, lips or body. Apply one coat for a sheer layer of sparkle, or two coats for full impact liquid glitter. Available in 7 shades. The shades I have are Twinkle (pink), Star (gold) and Aurora (white and pink). These dry down and don’t budge, so I think they are best on the eyes. I don’t care for drying lipstick, but I love it when my eye makeup stays all day. Star is more opaque than the other two shades, so it looks amazing on the eyes. I’ve used the white as face highliter, it’s very glittery! I also might try them on my body or cheekbones. Glitter is fun to play with, especially in the summer!
