Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

hi Josie

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

I want to know if argan oil reduce pimples. 

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

If I am using the Argan Matchmaker serum foundation, does that provide enough anti-aging benefits if I use another moisturizer?  I am currently disabled but am working to get my Masters in another area of work so that I can re-join the workforce but money is tight.

Thank you, Josie, you are so beautiful and you brand is helping me be more beautiful in my 40's!  I can't believe the Chameleon Pigments work so well, in the past I had tried other brands that were self adjusting and they always made me so dark, and an unnatural color, where as yours matches beautifully!

Thank you,

Sandy Aranyos

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Josie! You are so gorgeous! I've been a long time fan of your Argan color stick in petal pink. It looks amazing on both lips and cheeks and is fully pigmented. Are the watercolor cheek jellies similar?

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Sephoramusthave! Thanks so much for your question. I'm so glad you love the Argan Color Stick! The Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée is a little different. You can use it on both your lips and cheeks, but it provides more sheer, see-through color than the Argan Color Stick. It's infused with 50% Coconut Water to keep your skin hydrated, and gives your cheeks a really natural flushed look. I'm obsessed with it! If you love the Argan Color Stick in Petal Pink, I think Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée in Pink Escape will be perfect for you!

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Josie! I am interested in what was the initial idea that sparked your desire to begin your own company and what were the initial challenges that you faced during the companies infancy. 

 

Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Natbrooke-

Thank you for signing it to chat with me! I got the idea for my company when I was preggers with my first daughter, Rumi Joon. I was super aware of what was going in and on my body, and kept asking my makeup artist friends if there was a natural, safe, and healthy alternative to the products I was using. They all said no, and told me it was impossible to create a line that was high performing and natural. I thought, I can't be the only one who wants something healthier for my body! I just knew I had to go out there and do it myself. There were definitely challenges--people kept telling me it was impossible. But I kept going! 

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Thank you for your reply! Keep up all of the beautiful work with your cosmetic line. 

 

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Josie I suffer from mainly whiteheads on my nose and area around the nose, chin and a little bit on my forehead. I also have scars, and large pores. I have been using the Argan oil since May My forehead is a little cleared up, and also the sides of my face. Could recommend something for me?

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Dear Josie, what do you envision for the future of Josie Maran Cosmetics?

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

The Clear Argan Moisturzing Stick seems to be discontinued.  Will it ever re appear?  I love it and don't want to add color everywhere that the stick can be used. 

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Craftqueen! Thanks for your question! It's always so sad for me to have to discontinue products I love, but I have to make room for amazing new Argan innovation. The Argan Balm is fairly similar in texture to the Argan Moisturizing Stick, and should be a good substitute!

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

where do you get your beautiful highlights? and is there an eco-friendly way to get them and maintain them.

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hello Josie, you are such an inspiration! I am completely in love with your line. One staple from it is the Argan lip treatment balm. Love the packaging, love the faint green apple smell! I massage it into my lips every night! I am one of those women who loves lip plumpers... more so loves the tingle of them... I know you have a volumizing gloss, but will you ever bring one with a little "kick"? Also how do you achieve such a gorgeous smoky eye?

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Josie! I love your argan oil and your coconut water blushes.

I like both your argan oil regular and light. Although you market them as having the same health/beautification attributes, do you recommend one over the other? I like them equally. I guess I want to know from the expert, do you prefer one to the other? If so, why? a compare/contrast

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi BlushHoarder: This is such a good question! Asking me to pick one over the other is so hard! Like you, I love them both equally. I use the Argan Light in the morning before my makeup when I want something even faster absorbing than the original. Then, I use the 100% Pure Argan Oil at night when my skin needs a little more moisture. I also change which one I use depending on the climate I'm in. When I'm in the super humid weather at my Pennsylvania house, I mostly use Argan Light. But when I'm in L.A., where it's so dry, I use mostly the 100% Pure Argan Oil.

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Sephora Argan Beauties! 

So excited to be here chatting with you!  

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Josie!

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Josie!!

 

Will you be offering your Luscious Lips in the pink shade again??

Re: Live Chat with Josie Maran

Hi Josie!  


First off, I want to say I LOVE your products.  I tried your argan oil a couple of years ago on a whim and was hooked.  I have two questions.

 

1. Apart from using your products (which I find very relaxing) what is your favorite way to de-stress?

 

2. Do you have any plans for Sephora (or your website) to carry your exfoliating powder?

 

Thank you!!

 

P.S.  Also, I LOVED your model citizen products this year (the honey lavender chamomile with radiance/Ian Somerhalder ones).  I know it was limited edition but just know that if you made it permanent I would be thrilled.  The body butter version was my absolute favorite of all your body butters for both the scent and the perfect amount of radiance/sheen.  Same goes for the argan oil with radiance and the hair serum.
