Everyone shares the products they love. It’s rare you see any negative reviews posted on Instagram or by influencers. Although it does happen, it is rare. I pride myself in being honest. I cannot be a true representation of myself or my brand if I am not honest. And I am honest with brands as well. Sometimes I fear that will prevent them or others from working with me in the future, but the truth is, not every product out there is amazing. So, without further ado, here is my honest review of something I’ve been using for the last month.
Over the last month, I’ve been trying an Argan Beta-Retinoid Pink Algae Serum by Jose Maran Cosmetics. I used it every night after I washed my face and before I applied my moisturizer. This product comes in a gorgeous hot pink bottle that looks fabulous on your bathroom counter and has a glass dropper. The serum feels more like an oil to me than a serum. In fact, the color of the serum reminds me of pizza grease. You can apply this serum prior to applying your moisturizer, which I loved. Unfortunately, I was not a fan of the smell and I did not seem to notice much difference over the month. I also suffered from some brief breakout on my chin and in the crease of my nose, so I discontinued use in areas where that product may have moved with the application of moisturizer.
I have heard nothing but positive things about Josie Maran products and plan to try other products from this brand in the future, but this one was a miss for me, personally. This product may work better for someone with drier skin, as I have naturally oily skin.
