I seriously hate to post about something that is sold out, but consider this a sort of PSA. If anyone sees this on shelves, snag immediately. And I have been told by the Josie Maran team that they are working on restocking the Argan Liquid Gold Self Tanning Oil so get that credit card ready.

I have been a bit ambivalent about self-tanner this summer (just sticking with my tried and true Kate Somerville which is fabulous but hardly new to the routine). That was until this oil came across my desk. I am one to fall hard for an oil and this one is no different. Just happens to be this version is a self-tanning version.

First and foremost, my readers tend to focus in on the scent. I can’t smell a single thing except for argan oil goodness, vanilla and apricot. But those with a more sensitive nose will be glad to hear that in consumer studies, 88% agree the product left no after-scent. So score one for Josie.

The formula is a quick-absorbing and nourishing pure argan oil. The finish isn’t greasy but I do get a golden finish. I applied this rather quickly the first time around, but with the mitt I didn’t need to worry about streaking. The soft and plush fabric actually calms my skin and gives an immediate but natural-looking bronze. The formula also contains coconut water and aloe to smooth and revitalize skin.

I am already well through my bottle of this liquid gold. So I will be sure to let you know as soon as I spot a replenishment for myself. I will be keeping my eye on Sephora.
