I’ve heard about Josie Maran‘s products reaching a cult following, especially her moisturizing Argan oil. So when I saw she had coconut water infused cheek gelées, I couldn’t wait to give them a try. I purchased the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée in Poppy Paradise and have been really enjoying the buildable, hydrating color this product delivers.
These cheek gelées are infused with 50% coconut water for 14 hours of continuous color and hydration. They have a wonderful texture, a cross between a cream blush and a cheek stain. You can build the color up and it hydrates your skin as well, due to the addition of Vitamin E enriched Argan oil.
Poppy Paradise is a cool toned pink that I feel is perfect for summer. As you get that summer tan, you can build the color up to give your cheeks that perfect blush. With 6 shades, there is a color to compliment all skin tones.
Being a natural product, these cheek gelées are made without parabens, sulphates or phthalates and they are nourishing while providing a beautiful veil of color. I think these gelées will be a staple in my lighter summer make-up routine. After a day in the sun, I love the idea of a hydrating blush for evening.
