Physicians Formula Argan Wear BB Cream

2 comments

I recently went to CVS and spotted the Physicians Formula new Argan Wear BB cream.
I watched YouTube video reviews and it lead me to want to buy it. 

I'm not so easily persuaded to buy the new beauty items that come out on the market but when I see something that I truly like and curious to try then I go out and buy it.

What captured my attention to buy the Argan Wear was the fact that it is a BB Cream and sunscreen with Argan oil and it was a drugstore product.

I already use Argan oil as a daytime moisturizer every morning so I figured a tinted moisturizer with Argan can be even more beneficial and act as a foundation without it feeling to heavy on my skin.

So, CVS sells Argan Wear for $16.00 and as soon as I saw the price tag for the tiny 1.2 fl oz tube, I said nope! 

And I put it back but then I had a coupon from the red coupon machine for $3 bucks off and their special was, if you spend $12 bucks or more on any Physicians Formula product, you get $8 bucks back in rewards.

Ding Ding Ding! That was music to my ears making my Argan Wear purchase come out to $4 bucks! Yay!

So let's review this Argan oil infused BB cream shall we? 

The packaging is beautiful, small at 1.2 fl oz but beautiful and it's totally Moroccan themed from the tube all the way to the top.

Argan oil is from Morocco so it's very fitting for the design in the packaging.

What it's supposed to do:
Details from physicians Formula's

Physicians Formula Argan Wear Renew BB Cream is a luxurious, high performance formula that will even out your skin tone, vanishing flaws and imperfections and smoothing skin texture without ever leaving a greasy feel or finish. SPF 30. Infused with 100% Pure Argan Oil.

Isn't she a pretty little thing? LoL


I got the color in Light/Medium but other shades are available.


At first, I applied too much and it was a little caked on but then I took some off and it was better.
It has nice coverage that can be buildable.

I did notice that I needed to moisturize before using this product because without my moisturizer, I applied it on my T-Zone and I had some dry patches.

But if you have oily skin, it's best not to moisturize prior to using this. 
My advice is test it out and see.
This was my first attempt using the Argan Wear.

Now for the second try, it was much better.
I moisturized with my Argan oil, I let it set and used my stipple brush to apply the Argan Wear and it was a better experience that proved better results.

In the picture below, all I used was my moisturizer, the Argan Wear, lipliner and lipstick ,some tinted brow gel and some concealer for my under eye area and chin.
I loved the results and it gave me great coverage.




So my thoughts are:

  • Love the packaging
  • Love the results
  • Love the scent, it's a strong floral exotic scent but then it goes away
  • Love that it feels nice on my skin and gives me a matte finish with a beautiful glow
  • Love that it contains Argan Oil
  • Love that it has an SPF 30
I dislike the Price, $16 Bucks is a little to high for a drug store product in such a small bottle.

Overall this is a nice product.

Will I buy it again ? Yes!
Would I buy it without a coupon? No!
But if I can't get it for $4 bucks again than I would pay $10 dollars for it without hesitation.

So, these are my honest opinions on how the Argan Wear BB cream worked for me. 
Have you tried it? Do you like it? If so comment below:)

Pura d'or Argan Oil Set Review

Leave a Comment


Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes 


I was so excited to review this Argan Oil set from Pura d'or.
It's been 2 years and half that I have been using Argan Oil on my skin as a daytime moisturizer and it has transformed my skin and I rarely breakout and now thanks to Pura d'or I get to try out their Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner.

Let's get into the review: 
My Set included a 16.oz  Premium Organic Argan Oil Shampoo,  a 16 oz Premium Organic Argan Oil Conditioner and and 1 oz size bottle of Argan Oil imported from Morocco.

The shampoo in my opinion did not have a pleasant scent, it reminded me of a little tea tree oil infused with something else and when I read the label, sure enough Tea Tree was present. That type of scent is a little strong for me. 
I did use it as directed and waited 2 minutes before I rinsed it out and it left my hair in the shower soft as can be. 
I then applied the conditioner, and that had a wonderful scent of Vanilla and Lavender. I was kind of nervous because I did not know what the scent would actually smell like but the conditioner canceled out the shampoo smell. I don't think I'll use the shampoo alone without the conditioner.
Overall, the two combined made my hair super soft and shiny and tangle free.
But there's some interesting facts about this shampoo and conditioner.
Here is what Pura'dor states on their website:

And lastly my Fav is the pure Argan oil from Morrocco. I'ts great for hair hands, nails and skin among  other purposes.

The key ingredient is Argania Spinosa and whenever purchasing an Argan Oil always make sure that that is only ingredient or else its diluted and not organic or the real deal.
In the pic below you will see how soft and shiny and managable my hair looked. Also I have no makeup on so this is all about the hair ;)

So, After I towel dried it I diffused it then added a bit of Argan Oil to style it.
So in my opinion this trio works wonderfully together! You can find Pura'dor and many of their other organic products by clicking here: http://www.purador.com/blogger/the-color-wheel-gallery
