FACE


Josie Maran Argan Protect SPF 40+ Natural Daily Sun Protection $32.00 avail @ Josie Maran
Description: A daily-wear sunblock that naturally shields sensitive skin from the sun.  Josie’s sunblock employs natural titanium dioxide and zinc oxide to provide tested levels of broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, fending off the skin-aging effects of sun exposure. Infused with sun damage-fighting Argan Oil, the extra-mild, fast-absorbing formula is safe for even the most sensitive skin—including that of babies and toddlers. The light, smooth sunblock is ideal for daily use and can be applied under makeup for a moisturizing base. A delicate apricot scent is deliciously sweet, while still subtle for those who can’t tolerate the typical smells of sunscreen.  PABA-free and chemical-free, the formula is a natural choice for summer sun protection!
