Josie Maran Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Tinted Lotion

As the seasons change, so does my beauty regimen. We’re heading into hot weather here in South Jersey, so it’s time to start thinking about lighter makeup and skin care.

In May, I found a product that provides me lighter makeup coverage with a soft moisturizer for my sensitive skin! My 2012 summer regimen will most definitely include this product – Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Protect + Perfect Tinted Lotion.

I’ve used tinted moisturizers in the past, and none have ever provided balance for my skin tone, or softened my skin, quite like this product.

This daily moisturizer is argan oil-infused (Josie Maran’s line of cosmetics and skin care is argan oil-based!) and comes in a 2 fl. oz. pump container that delivers a healthy portion of product:

The best part about this product for me? The “Perfect” part…color-correcting protection:

I hardly EVER get away with just using a tinted moisturizer, and with this, I walk out the door to work and feel free knowing that some days, I just don’t have to put on a full face of makeup to cover my rosacea! I will add, however, that somedays, this is not enough and I put a little bit of pressed powder foundation over it.

Also, if I put too much of this moisturizer on my skin, it will look, and feel, oily. So a little goes a long way!

The good news is, Protect + Perfect will be launching in a QVC Today’s Special Value (TSV) on August 11th, along with an Argan Oil, a full-size Color Stick and Cleansing Oil, for just under $60 for the set. It will not be launching on its own until January 2013, and right now has a suggested retail price of $30. When it launches in August, it will be available in one shade, and exclusive to QVC.

The bad news is that we have to wait until August to get our hands on it. But on the positive side, based on my experiences with my own skin, I know that this will be a good moisturizer into fall and winter for me, as well.
