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.

YOU ASKED. WE ANSWER.

You’ve got questions, and we’ve got answers! We recently asked our customers to share their most burning questions about any of our products. They did not disappoint! At SAINT JANE, we strive to provide as much information and transparency around our award-winning products as possible. We feel that you have a right to know what’s in the products you put on your skin, and the benefits our meticulously clean ingredients can provide. That way, you can make an informed decision on which products earn their spot in your daily skincare routine. We’re answering five of our most-asked questions below!

 

Q: “I have normal to oily skin, will Luxury Beauty Serum make me break out?”

A: Dubbed “the face oil to end all face oils” by Stylecaster, Luxury Beauty Serum is a powerful treatment designed to address numerous skin concerns. Not only will it not clog pores, but it also works to detoxify them thanks to ingredients such as Calendula. Super ingredient Sea Buckthorn also helps balance excess oil production while 500mg of Full Flower Hemp Extract calms inflammation and irritation from current breakouts. In short, Luxury Beauty Serum is safe to use for all skin types.

 

Q: “What does glycerin-encapsulated Vitamin C mean?”

A: A good Vitamin C serum is a staple in any skincare routine, but these powerful serums can irritate sensitive skin. Our unique formula for The C-Drops contains a potent 20% Vitamin C blend, which we encapsulated in glycerin to ensure the serum penetrates the skin’s deepest layers for maximum results while minimizing irritation and redness.

 

Q: “Can The C-Drops be layered with your other products, or do they have to be used on their own?”

A: All of our products are designed to complement one another and enhance each other’s effects. We suggest using The C-Drops as the first step in your routine, followed by Luxury Beauty Serum and Hydrating Petal Cream for maximum hydration and radiance.

 

Q: “Which of your products are okay to use under makeup?”

A: Hydrating Petal Cream is not only a deeply hydrating moisturizer, but it also works beautifully under makeup for petal-soft skin that lasts all day. Bright Repair Eye Cream's silky formula absorbs effortlessly and is perfect under concealer and foundation. Our no-pill formulas enables makeup to glide on seamlessly for a naturally glowing complexion.

 

Q: “Is Hydrating Petal Cream only a summer moisturizer?”

A: Definitely not! Don’t let Hydrating Petal Cream’s featherweight texture fool you. The formula boasts 1% pure Hyaluronic Acid for deep hydration capable of standing up to winter conditions.

Bold Botanicals: Kakadu Plum, Sacred Superfruit and Unexpected Source of Vitamin C

With small, creamy white flowers in long spikes clustered towards the tips of the branches, the Kakadu Plum is an extraordinary botanical and superfruit originating from the wilds of Australia. Aboriginal people have valued this sacred plant for thousands of years for its nutrient-rich and medicinal properties, even using the red bark of the tree to heal skin conditions.

It wasn’t until the 1980’s that western scientists discovered just how extraordinary this fruit really is. They found phenomenally high Vitamin C concentrations in Kakadu plums. Traditional fruits like oranges and lemons are well known for being natural sources of Vitamin C, but the Kakadu Plum has the highest recorded concentration of Vitamin C in the world, measuring at 100 times that of an orange.

 

Natural contents in the plum are also rich in antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Research has even shown its extract has excellent preservative qualities. With these powerful benefits, this superfruit ingredient is a dream for infusing into your clean beauty routine.

When we were developing The C-Drops, infusing Kakadu Plum as one of our sustainably sourced, hero ingredients was the answer to harnessing the power of this superfruit to benefit the skin. Grown free from human intervention, this beautiful, wildcrafted ingredient thrives in its harsh growing conditions, developing a highly efficient defense mechanism made up of diverse antioxidants. These antioxidants help to detoxify the skin and fight off free radical damage caused by environmental factors.

Kakadu Plum works to restore the skin’s natural barrier and encourages skin elasticity and suppleness which is ideal for balancing the complexion. Perfect for acne prone or oily skin, while its deeply soothing qualities can calm sensitive skin.

Our favorite way to incorporate Kakadu Plum into your skincare routine is through a targeted serum like The C-Drops. Rich in Kakadu Plum, citrus botanicals like lemon, lime and mandarin work to visibly smooth skin textures, brighten dullness and leave a radiance you only get with high concentrations of Vitamin C. 

Get the full benefits of this rich ingredient in your morning skincare routine, and be sure to follow with a good sunscreen to add another layer of protection for your skin.

Best in Class Vitamin C for Bright, Glowing Skin

It’s no secret that Vitamin C is one of the most powerful ingredients in skincare. In the 1920’s a Hungarian scientist named Albert Szent-Györgyi became interested in the cell respiration and energy production in plants, and would meticulously study any “browning” or interrupted growth. While conducting a series of experiments, he discovered that he could delay these interruptions by adding citrus juice to nurture the plants. Eventually, he would learn to isolate what he believed to be the protective acid agent in the citrus juice, and made the game changing discovery of Vitamin C. 


Our skin is just as delicate as the botanicals in Albert’s studies, and infusing Vitamin C into your skincare routine can be just as powerful as the results he witnessed in his discovery.

Like many ingredients, not all Vitamin C is created equal. There are different variations, different potencies and different levels of quality. We believe that in order to transform the skin, only the best Vitamin C will do.

We use an innovative form of Glycerin-Encapsulated Vitamin C that goes into every drop of our award-winning The C-Drops and Bright Repair Eye Cream to deliver potent benefits to your skin. Glycerin is a natural hydrator that is known for its ability to deeply absorb past the skin’s surface. In combination with Vitamin C, it increases the efficacy in visibly brightening, smoothing texture, and nourishing the skin. Delivering Vitamin C to your skin in this form also helps to improve your skin barrier and provides a level of protection against skin stressors.

 Our Vitamin C is formulated for top level potency. Active at 20% in C-Drops and 10% in Bright Repair, the brightening and resurfacing power is at its highest level of efficacy. Our decision to infuse CBD into the formula helps to soothe on contact, and keeps irritation at bay...a common problem with traditional Vitamin C skincare. The way these two ingredients perform is a beautiful balancing act, a dream for even the most sensitive complexions. 

 

Like all of our ingredients, our Vitamin C is held to the highest standards of clean beauty. Sustainably sourced and thoughtfully formulated, we never compromise when it comes to keeping every component meticulously clean.  A clean approach to CBD skincare for peace of mind so you can squeeze the day. 

Life is a wondrous phenomenon. I can only hope that someday man will achieve a deeper insight into its nature and its guiding principles and will be able to express them in more exact terms…To express the marvels of nature in the language of science is one of man’s noblest endeavors.” — Albert Szent-Györgyi
