Sometimes a woman is described as “comfortable in her own skin;” a phrase denoting an admirable quality that is more than skin deep. But it’s hard to be comfortable in your skin if it’s dry, flaking, and itchy!
I’m always on the look-out for a good body cream, and for some time my favorite has been Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Ultra -Hydrating Body Butter. It’s made from 100% organic, hand-crafted Argan oil from the Argan tree that grows exclusively in southwest Morocco. Nuts are hand-pressed to extract an oil rich in vitamins and minerals. It hydrates and softens the skin without any chemical ingredients, which I especially appreciate in an all-over body treatment! Josie sells other products using this pure, natural, body-loving ingredient, but this version is whipped into a silky cream that sinks into the skin, leaving it soft and moisturized all day. A little goes a long way! I apply it after a shower and give it time to soak in while I finish my make-up. It’s available in an unscented version, as well as many pleasant fragrances. I signed up for their money-saving, auto-delivery plan, and twice a year I receive 8 little tubs of it in a pretty decorative box. I’ve given jars to friends and family and I always get back rave reviews – and questions about where to buy it!
