Josie Maran's Argan-Oil Infused Bronzer

Can’t get enough of Argan oil? Neither can I. Perhaps that’s why I’m smitten by Josie Maran’s Argan Brightening Bronzer Sun Spot Corrector. This little compact contains bearberry extract and Vitamin C to brighten the skin (don’t worry—no hydroquinone found in this formula!) and contains a natural SPF for some light sun protection.

Note, however, that you should still apply a regular SPF everyday. Natural SPF’s are usually not sufficient. They typically give you an SPF anywhere between five and 10. And because you can’t be certain how much protection you are actually getting, make sure you are using an actual sunscreen (e.g. any product that makes a numerical SPF claim) to prevent pre-mature ageing and sun damage.

Josie Maran’s Argan Brightening Bronzer produces an extremely natural colour—not too orange or muddy, like some bronzers on the market. It gives off the perfect sun-kissed glow and can be layered according to your desired level of colour.

And what can I say, I’m a sucker for beautifully moulded compacts, even though I know it will disappear after a couple swipes with a blush brush. Am I alone in this obsession?

What bronzers are your must-haves this summer?
