CENTURIES OF HEALING IN ONE BOTTLE: INSIDE LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM

 

 

If you love SAINT JANE, chances are you love our holy grail Luxury Beauty Serum. Its award-winning formula is filled with over 20 luxury floral actives beloved for centuries by ancient civilizations for their skin nourishing results. Each flower brings its own unique benefit to the table, and quite honestly many of them could be a full skincare routine in their own right. Combined, they create our cult-favorite Luxury Beauty Serum. We don’t mean to brag, but it has been called "the face oil to end all face oils". Just saying.

While we could literally write novels on each of these gorgeous flowers and why we chose them, today we simply want to highlight a few of our favorites and the benefits they have in store for your skin.

 

  1. Helichrysum: Dubbed “immortelle” by the French for its powerhouse anti-aging properties, Helichrysum was once presented as an offering to the gods in ancient Greece. It was also used as a topical anti-septic. These healing properties make it a wonderful addition to skincare products because it helps activate repair and cell turnover, plus stimulates collagen production for more youthful looking skin.

 

  1. Calendula: As one of the most effective, natural anti-inflammatory ingredients out there, Calendula more than earns its place amongst skincare superheros. It known for its ability to soothe and calm irritated skin from conditions such as eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, etc. Its rich supply of essential fatty acids make it highly nourishing for dry skin. These skin healing properties led Civil War era doctors to use it as a wound treatment for soldiers.

 

  1. Sunflower: Not just another pretty summer flower! Sunflower is a natural skin protectant able to be used on the most sensitive of skin. It contains high concentrations of Vitamin E and Linoleic Acid, both powerful protectants that help support and maintain skin’s natural barrier. Historically, it was used to care for the delicate skin of premature babies.

 

  1. Rosehip: Historically, Rosehip has been used for centuries to treat a variety of issues. It has been used as everything from perfumes and food flavoring to treatments for muscle cramps and scurvy prevention. It was used by the Egyptians, Romans, and Mayans for its incredible healing abilities. We love it for skin thanks to its high concentrations of antioxidants and its ability to stimulate both collagen and elastin production.

 

Can you believe that this list does not even scratch the surface of the many luxurious botanicals found in Luxury Beauty Serum?  Our floral infused products are filled with so many meticulously clean ingredients steeped in history that we can't wait to share more. Make sure to follow us for further details on the many exquisite florals we curate for our award -winning formulas.

OUR SECRET TO LAYERING ✨

 

Have you ever typed into Google the words, “Can I use *insert skincare ingredient here* at the same time as *insert skincare ingredient here*.

Yep, we thought so. We’ve all done it - pondered the mysteries of layering skincare ingredients until our heads spin. Layering can be a tricky concept that boggles the minds of even the most seasoned skincare aficionados. 

 

SAINT JANE is here to take the guesswork out of layering our products. All of our products are packed with potent ingredients designed to complement one another and enhance their effects. Though each of our products contains enough clean actives and rich botanicals to be a full routine on its own, we’re sharing our complete suggested layering guide below.

 

Step 1 - The C-Drops

 

As a general layering rule of thumb, you should start with the thinnest in product texture and work your way up to the heaviest. For SAINT JANE, that means The C-Drops is the first layer of your routine. Packed with a 20% glycerin-encapsulated Vitamin C blend, this powerful serum is formulated to penetrate the deepest layers of skin for maximum effectiveness. Starting with The C-Drops enables you to up your skin’s glow factor for a radiant complexion. Though Vitamin C is a potent ingredient that can sometimes cause irritation and redness as an unfortunate side effect, our formulation includes skin-soothing botanicals, for a gentle yet effective first step.

 

Step 2 - Hydrating Petal Cream

 

As the newest product in the SAINT JANE skincare arsenal, Hydrating Petal Cream has already taken its place among our can’t-live-without products. With the ultra-hydrating power of 1% pure Hyaluronic Acid combined with the smoothing capabilities of Hibiscus Peptides, Hydrating Petal Cream delivers silky smooth, hydrated skin that lasts all day. Its featherweight texture absorbs quickly and is specifically designed to never pill, making it the perfect lightweight moisturizer to layer on top of your first step. As an added bonus, it’s the perfect base for your makeup if you’re doing this routine in the morning!

 

 

Step 3 - Bright Repair Eye Cream

Somehow, our eyes seem to always be the neglected part of our skincare routine. Do we really need an entirely separate product just for this one area? The answer is an emphatic YES. The skin around our eyes is different than the rest of our face, and thus needs special care. Bright Repair Eye Cream is specifically designed to target dark circles and fine lines while protecting the integrity of our delicate eye skin. 10% Vitamin C visibly brightens while Green Tea and Grapeseed work to de-puff and knock out the intensity of dark circles for a calm, well-rested look. 

 

Step 4 - Luxury Beauty Serum

 

It has been called “the face oil to end all face oils” for a reason. Our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum is a powerful treatment packed with hundreds of nutrients designed to reverse signs of aging and calm skin. This omega-rich serum not only delivers a huge dose of soothing botanicals to skin, it also packs a punch with actives such as Sea Buckthorn and Calendula, which gently resurface and detoxify pores. Luxury Beauty Serum is our holy grail, skin-transforming powerhouse and is the ultimate final layer to seal in all of the nutrients from the previous steps.

Why We Love Calendula to Calm the Skin

Why We Love Calendula to Calm the Skin
A Sacred, Clean Way to Calm Skin

 

Calendula is one of our favorite botanicals for calming the skin. Coveted for centuries, this sacred, ancient skin-soother is known and clinically proven for its anti-inflammatory properties, regenerative potency and antioxidant-rich benefits. 

Calendula was first named by the ancient Romans, who observed the plant would bloom on the first day (Latin: kalends) of every month. They viewed the plant’s non-stop blooming as a symbol of joy and cultivated it in their gardens to spread happiness. Ancient Egyptians extracted the sap from the plant’s stem and used it to heal wounds and promote healthy skin growth. In World War I, battlefield doctors would hydrate dried Calendula flowers and apply the mixture to soldiers’ wounds to prevent infection. 

When it comes to stressed skin, we take inspiration from mother nature and botanicals that have been used for centuries to restore, heal and nourish. This beautiful ingredient which restores balance, boosts hydration and aids the skin barrier, is the ultimate lifeline for stressed-skin, and one of our potent botanicals in our Luxury Beauty Serum and Luxury Body Serum. Our Calendula is sustainably sourced in Egypt using CO2 extraction methods directly from the flower to ensure potency and efficacy. But most of all we chose Calendula to infuse your skin with moments of restorative calm.
