FROM JOSIE MARAN COSMETICS
THINK: Luxury with a conscience, beauty for a cause.
WHAT THEY ARE: Three Model Citizens. Three charities to support. Three bottles of Limited Edition 100% Pure Argan Oil. It takes more than a pretty face to be a model citizen—but in the case of supermodels Josie Maran, Petra Nemcova and Angela Lindvall, it sure helps. They may be famous for their beauty, but these three activists are committed to improving the world we live in, bringing new meaning to the term “model citizen.” That’s why the eco-beauty maven behind Josie Maran Cosmetics tapped fellow models Petra Nemcova and Angela Lindvall to join her in creating limited edition artwork for the bottles of her signature Argan Oil to benefit the causes they believe in. Launching in conjunction with Earth Day, each of the three limited-edition designs supports a cause close to one of the model’s hearts.
“Living in a sustainable, earth-friendly way that benefits the planet has always been an essential part of beauty for me,” explains Josie Maran. “Petra and Angela are also so dedicated and passionate about the causes they support, and I wanted to share our enthusiasm with the world. We want to encourage everyone to join us in becoming ‘model citizens,’ and the limited-edition Argan Oils are a great place to start.”
I was sent a a bottle of the Model Citizen Argan oil designed by Angela Lindvall, more information on Angela and her charity below, and I have to admit that my first reaction was what will I DO with this? My skin and hair tend to go towards the oily side so I initially thought, what can this oil do for me? Well, I found out it can do a lot. I used the oil on my dry elbows and knees, smoothed a dab through wet hair for extra softness and used some for nighttime skin conditioning. Not only is the oil 100% natural, there is virtually no smell and I was not left with a greasy film after use. I was especially surprised and pleased that the oil did not gunk up my hair or make it limp. For me, the oil isn’t something that I would use daily, but I think that the Josie Maran product is great for integration into your existing routine. Also, 10% of all proceeds from the limited edition oil goes to benefit the charity noted on the packaging. Can’t beat that!

Sometimes you get news about something that seriously just makes you stop and want to scream WTF!!!! Into the loudest, biggest megaphone you can find. I just had that moment. And if anyone needs me, I will be purchasing the largest bottle of wine available for sale by law in the United States this evening. Unbelievable.
