Argan Republic Beauty Products
Jade Stone, Rose Quartz…What’s the Difference?
Browse Argan Republic’s crystal rollers and you’ll see variety. This includes an adorable mini jade facial roller that’s perfect for on-the-go eye treatment. But is one better than the other? According to Masterson, it all depends on your personal choice.
“This is a question I get a lot,” says Masterson. “The stones have different energies, if you believe in that kind of thing. The physical benefits of the tools are the same. They can be used for lymphatic drainage and detoxification, which will help with puffiness and clearing skin.”
Masterson says you can also use it to rejuvenate your skin and smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, the physical benefits of facial rolling include improved circulation, which delivers nutrients and oxygen to the skin.
Benefits of the Rose Quartz or Jade Eye Mask
The rose quartz and jade eye masks are beautiful skincare tools that can tempt you into purchasing one, whether or not you need it in your beauty routine. Some may wonder if there are any benefits at all, or if it’s another marketing gimmick. If it’s the latter, who can honestly be surprised?
However, it’s not a gimmick. There are many benefits to the rose quartz eye mask and jade eye mask. They can soothe and relax facial muscles and skin; improve blood circulation and skin tone; reduce under eye circles and much more.
As it’s not your ordinary eye mask, it doesn’t come with your ordinary price, retailing at $155.00 a mask.
Masterson’s Favorite Argan Republic Products
I love asking this question even though it feels like the tragic scene in Sophie’s Choice. These are her valuable creations, but of course we want to know which is her favorite. Because, obviously, we’d like to give that product a try.
“As for skincare products, it has to be any of my oil based serums,” says Masterson. “I tend to rotate what I use depending on how I’m feeling about my skin and the season. But my serum goes on my face twice per day no matter what. Everything else is optional: beauty balms, masks, rollers…I use them less frequently as I’m a busy mom.”

Sun Protection: Glow Illuminizing Oil from Argan Republic
Summer is slowly moving into fall, but no matter what the season, it’s important to protect your skin with sunscreen. But if you do get damaged, there are natural products that can soothe your sun burnt skin. Introducing Glow Illuminizing Oil.
“The first part of sun protection is prevention,” Masterson says. “Wearing an SPF sun defense oil or protective clothing is a must!”
To add onto that, if you have pale or sensitive skin, take your sun protection a step further because studies show that sunscreen is not enough for people with pale and sensitive skin.
Masterson says, “The Glow and Shine oils are formulated with a number of oils that have a natural spf. Although the spf of each oil varies, I think adding them to your skin care ritual can only help.”
She recommends using the Glow and Shine oils when sunscreen is the last thing on your mind.
“Maybe you’re going to an outdoor wedding, to meet for coffee in a park or walking the dog,” Masterson says. “People don’t generally apply sunscreen for these types of activities buy you can actually get UV damage. Healing sun damage is the next part, with regenerative oils that fight free radicals and improve elasticity.”
Intro to her Holistic, Organic, Cruelty-free Lifestyle
I think it’s safe to say that most of us want to live a healthy, natural lifestyle even if we’re taking absolutely no steps towards it.
For Masterson, her introduction to a holistic and organic, cruelty-free lifestyle came relatively easy. She tells us that she has always been health conscious, but realized she had much to learn after reading The Beauty Detox Solution by Kimberly Snyder.
Advice from the “Master”son
A natural, holistic, plant-based lifestyle sounds great on paper. But when put into action, it can be a challenge. We asked Masterson if she had any advice to kick-start a healthy lifestyle.
“I would suggest starting slow,” says Masterson.
She understands that this change can be overwhelming, which is why she suggests taking it one change at a time. What’s a good starting point? Your skincare routine.
“Swap out a conventional moisturizer for a natural one,” says Masterson. “Make one new healthy recipe per week…go slow and soon you’ll find your living your greenest, healthiest life.”
