Josie Maran Holiday Gift Sets

I'm getting into the Christmas Spirit! I see it everywhere, so I was thinking about christmas gifts to give to my family and friends. I got two gift sets from Sephora that I have been testing out and I think they will make great gifts! They are from Josie Maran. I really like Josie Maran products because they are made from mostly natural ingredients. Her main ingredient is Argan Oil. I really like Argan oil especially in the the winter when it gets really dry and my skin starts getting some dry patches.


The first set I got is the Escape to Morocco Holiday Lights and Brights Set $29. It comes with
100% Pure Argan Oil Light: I really liked this one as a night time moisturizer because it's lighter than the original which caused me to break out.
Argan Illuminizer: I mix this with my foundation to give my skin a really pretty glow or you can use as a highlighter to the high points of your face.
Argan Color Stick (Spice): I was always intrigued my this product so i was deligthed to see this in the kit. It a very nice natural flush to the skin and doesn't feel tacky, but i like to use it more as a lipstick. It feels very nice on the lips.
Argan High Gloss Lip Quench (Pink Honey): This is a pretty recent product from the line. They sell the it in a clear color, but the kit came with a color that matches very well to the color stick. This gloss is very moisturizing and not sticky at all. It pairs great with any lipstick.


The second set I got is the Escape to Morocco Holiday Hair & Body Beautifiers $39. It comes with 
Argan Cleansing Oil: This oil removes makeup very well. The only issue I had is that it's pretty thick so you have to rub a lot. It's not my favorite cleansing oil but its a good one overall.
Argan Infinity Intensive Creamy Oil: This by far has been my favorite product of the kit. I use it anywhere I have dry skin. I use it mostly on my feet as a foot cream and then I put some socks and I wake up with the softest feet ever! 
Argan Oil Hair Serum
100% Pure Argan Oil: This is not a favorite for moisturizing my skin because it's too heavy for my skin and I breakout, but I found another use for it. I use it as a  hair oil and for my cuticles and for that it's a great product!
Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream in Vanilla Apricot: This is one of best hand creams I have tried, it's very moisturizing and skins in really quick. No greasy residue.  I already finished it and will be buying a full size one very soon!This scent is amazing!!
Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter: I love the feel of this body butter and it moisturizes really well for this time of year.

Overall these kits make a great Holiday gift for a love one or even for yourself! What do you guys think of this set and Josie Maran Products? Next on my list is to try some of her makeup products.
