Josie Maran Argan Oil

This lightweight oil can be used as a daily moisturizer and treatment for skin, hair, and nails…and now it comes in a holiday package!

What it does:
This high-grade oil, rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, can be used in many different ways: to hydrate and nourish skin, as a daily moisturizer, as a skin treatment, to treat spilt ends, and to soften cuticles. It’s gentle enough to use from head to toe on all skin types and is believed to help with skin conditions including acne. Argan Oil easily absorbs into the skin, providing a youthful, dewy glow, with astonishing healing, conditioning, and anti-agingproperties. The limited-edition holiday packaging is inspired by the colorful bazaars of Morcco, where it is grown organically.

What else you need to know:
100% Pure Argan Oil is cold-pressed to ensure that it’s the best-quality, highest-grade oil. It’s sold in a recyclable glass bottle and purchased from women’s cooperatives in Morocco to support their social and economic welfare. These cooperatives also work within a UNESCO biosphere reserve that ensures the protection and reforestation of Argan trees.

Research results:
This product is clinically proven to improve skin hydration and skin elasticity. After just four weeks, participants saw a visible reduction in coarse wrinklesand fine lines in the eye area; more than 83% of women showed significantly improved skin hydration.

 But this stuff is amazing! Works extremely well and I highly recommend it. I have friends who use it too and love it! Worth the money!!!

(They also have it in a regular version and in a set at sephora. And don’t forget to try her hot oil hair treatments!)

Pomp-pomp-Pompadours!

Pompadour’s are all over the red carpet and Hollywood again lately, this time with a light, feminine feel. From high to low, this style has been a hit…except for maybe Snooki’s…? However, it’s not always about the height. Hairstylists say they don’t have to be perfect, and can be tousled and simple too! Yay for imperfection! Just make sure they stay up with plenty of teasing and light hairspray! This makes it seem fluffy and bouncy.

What is your favorite pompadour look?
