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.

Sacred Botanicals: Sandalwood

Centuries old Sandwood and its use for both medicinal and skincare benefits have been recorded for over 4,000 years, making it among the earliest botanicals to be used in this way.

Native to India, Sandalwood has a rich history and was believed to have been used in the bathing rituals of Hindu Gods. It is even written that the most powerful Goddess, Lakshmi resided in a Sandalwood Tree.

It was known then, and known now to hydrate, rejuvenate and soothe the skin. The unique and powerful benefits of this botanical are ideal for many skin concerns and skin types. As such a versatile ingredient, Sandalwood is one of our 20 botanicals found in our best-selling Luxury Beauty Serum. Our multipurpose skin calming, balancing and nourishing powerhouse serum.

For complexions on the drier side, Sandalwood can provide deep replenishment for moisture loss. It’s a natural emollient with powerful, hydrating effects on the skin. The scientific structure of Sandalwood allows deeper absorption into the skin to deliver an intense dose of moisture.

Sandalwood is the perfect gentle exfoliant for brighter skin. Rich, and liquid gold in color this oil has mild, natural astringent properties making it essential for skin renewal. 

Soothing and calming. Our two favorite skin benefits of the botanicals we select for our formulas. Sandalwood doesn’t disappoint in this department. It is rich with calming compounds with the unparalleled ability to renew the complexion. A dream botanical for harsh skin concerns like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.

The calming effects of Sandalwood go beyond the skin. When it comes to aromatherapy, the calming scent of Sandalwood is a favorite. It is said that the most aromatic Sandalwood Oil comes from the oldest trees. It’s rich, woody aroma is just as effective at uniting your senses as it is balancing your skin.

Sacred Botanicals: Helichrysum "The Everlasting Flower"

helichrysum_luxury_beauty_serum_saint_jane

In every drop of Saint Jane serum, every jar of eye cream, and every swipe of lip treatment are sacred, trusted botanicals that have been used for centuries to treat and transform the skin.

Of the 20 potent botanicals found in our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum, Helichrysum is one we harness for its concentrated antioxidant potency and historical healing powers. This powerful botanical, also known as “Everlasting” or “Immortelle”, impresses with its extreme gentleness and high efficacy. 

Some of the first known uses of Helichrysum comes from the time of the Ancient Greeks, as it was known and used for its wound healing ability often used after the frequent battles of that time period. 

Helichrysum appears countless times in Greek mythology, most notably in Homer’s epic poem when the hero Oydsseus returns to the Pheonician coast and meets the divine Nausicaa, the beautiful daughter of the king. It is told the secret of her beauty is the extraordinary oil of the “flower that never fades, even when it is picked,” earning its name...Immortelle.

In addition to its rich history, this everlasting flower really shines when it comes to benefits for the skin, as the ancient women of history discovered. The renewing oil is an anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiseptic...the list goes on. The esters found naturally occurring in the oil are known to help reduce the appearance of acne and have a calming effect on the skin. The presence of naturally occurring chemical components make up the unique structure of this oil that’s powerful enough to balance oily and dry skin, but gentle enough for sensitive skin, especially when mixed with other botanicals (like the 19 others in Luxury Beauty Serum).

Helichrysum oil can be incredibly moisturizing, even for oily complexions and its powerful renewing properties have been shown to slow and even visibly reverse signs of aging. The high concentrations of antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties help to repair and restore skin cells, revive dull skin and combat fine lines and dark spots.

When selecting and sourcing our botanical blends, those that have the ability to calm skin stress are close to our hearts. Helichrysum is both antibiotic and antifungal and an effective treatment for so many skin irritations. Using a serum like Luxury Beauty Serum, with concentrations of Helichrysum can help combat skin stress like breakouts, eczema, psoriasis and other skin concerns. Our love for this everlasting flower and it’s healing history runs deep and infusing its sacred benefits into every golden drop will empower your skin to find balance and calm.

luxury_beauty_serum_reviews

“My holy grail oil and  favorite product I have ever used on my face. I waited to write this review until I really used this long term. It’s been over a year and I have no desire to change or try a different product. It helps with my breakouts while hydrating my skin at the same time. I recommend this to everyone! I use it on its own at night or mix a few drops with my moisturizer.”

- Sephora Client

“For me skin care is about slowing down, winding down, and taking the time to just enjoy smells, textures, and pamper myself if even for ten minutes before bed. This serum introduced me to this new practice of mine and I love it. Added benefit: my skin has never felt softer.

- Sephora Client

“This is a beautiful face oil. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I purchased the full size after finishing up a sample I received. I've been using this for about 3 weeks and it's definitely made a difference in my skin. I see a reduction in fine lines, redness and an improvement in moisture level. It sinks right into my skin leaving no residue behind. The smell is divine. After pressing it into my skin I hold my hands up to my nose and inhale. It's a very light and relaxing scent. I will continue to purchase this product given the results I've seen in a short period of time. I would also like to give a shout out to the Saint Jane team. They are so friendly and extremely helpful. It makes me feel good supporting a company like that.”

- Sephora Client

“Love this product!  Luxurious packaging and experience applying this serum nightly. Finally a CBD line that hits the mark for clean and luxury beauty. After a month of use it has helped calm the redness and irritation my skin acquired after having my second child. I am now a fan and will be purchasing again!”

- Sephora Client

“This serum is heaven in a bottle. Such a beautiful product, in every sense. As for the serum, it’s lightweight, has a slight scent to it but it’s pleasant, and made my skin feel good. With continued use, my skin felt more hydrated, my areas of texture decreased, and my skin had a glow to it. I feel like this serum improved the overall look of my face and skin.”

-Sephora Client

Is It a Serum or a Facial Oil? Our #1 FAQ About Luxury Beauty Serum

luxury beauty serum cbd clean beauty

 

We get asked this all the time...is Luxury Beauty Serum a facial oil or a serum? We have an answer but first let’s start with the difference between a serum and a facial oil. If you find yourself unable to tell the difference, you aren’t alone. The term “serum” has become a general skincare category for any kind of treatment that targets various skin concerns with formulas that vary in texture.

A serum is traditionally a super concentrated, lightweight product that is applied after cleansing/toning but before moisturizer. Because of their fluid or gel-like textures, they absorb easily into the skin to powerfully target skin concerns with concentrated active ingredients. Serums can be formulated to boost hydration, brighten, detoxify, fight signs of aging and so much more. 

When it comes to facial oils, they are quite a bit different from serums. Oils are richer in texture, and act as an emollient moisturizer. Because of their impenetrable properties, they are designed to seal in moisture as a final step in your skincare routine after serums and moisturizers. Moisture escapes our skin so easily because of both environmental and genetic factors, so the use of a rich facial oil can protect your skin barrier and prevent moisture loss.

So which category does our award-winning, multi-purpose hero product fall? Luxury Beauty Serum is...BOTH. When we were developing this product, we wanted it to be truly multi-purpose and act as both a serum and facial oil (and moisturizer too!). The unique formula is infused with concentrations of rich botanicals like Sea Buckthorn, Calendula and Rose to boost radiance by gently detoxifying the pores. The 500 mg of Whole Flower CBD in the formula has a small molecular structure which, when combined with the other botanicals, absorbs quickly and deeply into the skin, unlike traditional oils. Your skin is not only receiving deeply intense concentrations of nutrients, but also a boost of hydration and barrier protection. The lightweight concentration of a serum with the skin drenching hydration and protection of a rich oil.

The result is skin that is nourished, stress-free and radiant. You can use Luxury Beauty Serum in your A.M. and P.M. skincare routine after cleansing and toning to target skin concerns like redness, acne, dryness, dullness or sensitive skin. Your glow is unmatched.

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.
