Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil, $28, Sephora

Every once and a while a product comes along that deserves special attention. What strikes me about this creamy oil is actually just that. A creamy oil? In spring?

Yes and yes. Infinity times. Not only is it 99% natural, the non-greasy hybrid is a blend of a creamy, smooth lotion and a deeply hydrating oil with multiple uses. I originally began using the formula to soften my hands but soon found several other uses including a dab under my eyes before bed, smoothing my eyebrows as a last minute touch up and smoothing a pea-sized amount on my cheeks to create a dewy glow over blush.

Helpful hint: A little goes a long way and if it's been a while in between uses, shake or massage the product to keep the oil distributed.

Here are a few of Josie's tips for everyday uses:

Use Argan Infinity Cream to:
-Deeply moisturize dry areas of the face.
-Soothe irritated skin caused by rosacea, wind, or sunburn.
-Soften elbows, heels, and other rough patches.
-Keep stray eyebrows in place.
-Smooth flyaways.
-Moisturize at night.
-Prevent razor burn and irritation.
-Prevent skin dehydration during airline travel.
-Apply as a lip conditioner before lipstick.
-Apply over lip stain for a silky finish.
-Lightly dab on eyelids before applying eye shadow.
-Apply before or after using cheek stain to improve blendability.
-Transform powder eye shadow or pigment into a cream by mixing with Infinity Cream.
-Mix with a powder luminizer to create a light, shimmery lip balm.
-Use as a subtle face highlighter to illuminate cheekbones, lips, and brow bones.
-Mix with a powder blush to create a silky cream blush or colored lip balm.
-Hydrate and plump dry, swollen undereyes.
-Apply to fingertips and toes to hydrate and soften cuticles.
-Quench skin post-sunburn.
