Josie Maran Argan Skincare Ritual Set

I have been wanting to switch up my skin care and try to find better protection for my mug. Trader Joe's Nourish moisturizer has been a staple in my routine for a few years now, but was sad to see it show up as a 10 on ThinkDirty.  I think it is time to step up my facial care game.  

Dirty! :(
1.9 oz Argan Cleansing Oil, 0.5 oz Pure Argan Oil & 0.5 Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47
What the says:

What it is:
A three-step skincare ritual set for hydrated, healthy, protected skin. 

What it is formulated to do:
For healthy, balanced, hydrated skin, Josie Maran's Argan Skincare Ritual is the place to begin. Cleanse, nourish, and protect skin with this set of Josie's three bestselling skincare products: Argan Cleansing Oil, 100% Pure Argan Oil, and Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47. Each gentle, hydrating skin saver is packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids to make skin glow. 

The self-heating, non-greasy Argan Cleansing Oil hydrates deeply as it melts away makeup and dirt. It features Argan, safflower seed, and grape seed oils to cleanse the skin's surface and renew the complexion so that skin is left velvety—never oily, stripped, or dry. Nourishing and lightweight, 100% Pure Argan Oil repairs and replenishes skin while offering intense hydration. Protect skin with the all-natural, chemical-free Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47. Naturally scented and non-greasy, it’s infused with SunBoost ATB™—an innovative complex that promotes the effectiveness of the formula's natural sunscreens. Skin is left refreshed, hydrated, and protected. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates 
- Phthalates 

Semi-clean - not bad.
Uh-oh, dirty. :(  The fragrance in this item is what makes it dirty.
Cost: $24 @ Sephora

-Good set to try 3 items from the Josie Maran line
-SPF content is high in the moisturizer

-The moisturizer has fragrance
-Glass bottles

Would I recommend this to a friend?  Yes!  Even with the fragrance in the moisturizer, I liked the products.  The cleanser cuts through make up and leaves my skin soft.  I have used argan oil before for both my face and hair and mainly use this one at night after cleansing.  The moisturizer does have some weight to it, but is absorbed after a few minutes of applying and only needs 2 pumps to cover my face, neck and ears.
