More Than a Sunscreen, Meet Luxury Sun Ritual

Sunscreen is a non-negotiable part of everyone's skincare routine. Up to 90% of signs of aging come from the sun, and 1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime, which makes SPF one of the most important things you can do for your skin. Choosing a daily, effective sunscreen can be overwhelming, so we developed the perfect formula that not only powerfully protects your skin but does so much more.

What's Your Skin Type? Saint Jane Solutions for Every Complexion

What's Your Skin Type? Skincare Solutions for Every Complexion

At SAINT JANE, when our teams go to work on developing a new skincare product, your complexions and the individual nuances of your skin are at the forefront of our minds. How we can craft formulas that benefit a myriad of skin concerns, products that multi-task and bring balance, and most importantly beautifully support the multitude of skin types of our clients.

Our skin types are as different as our personalities, and knowing your skin type is crucial in finding the right rituals to support your skin. While skin types can be complex, your skin will likely fall into one or more of these categories: Dry, Oily, Combination, Normal or Sensitive. 

No matter your skin type, there are SAINT JANE powerhouse products that beautifully and efficaciously address skin concerns. Here are our recommendations according to your skin type:

DRY SKIN

Having dry skin can be both uncomfortable and frustrating, as hydration plays such a key role in the overall function of our skin on the surface and the cellular level. Hydrating ingredients are always present in our formulas because they are a consistent need across every skin type, but especially for dry skin. If your skin is in desperate need of moisture and hydration, you need:

  • HYDRATING PETAL CREAM, our light-weight but deeply hydrating daily moisturizer. This petal packed cream can be applied both morning and night after cleansing and serums. We infuse this daily hydrator with powerful luxury active florals like Hibiscus, Pink Lotus and Honeysuckle for petal soft skin and potent hydrating benefits.
  • LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM, our best-selling powerhouse serum with ultra hydrating and nourishing ingredients like Omega-3 fatty acids, Sunflower, Rosehip and Sea Buckthorn. This beautiful blend of luxury active florals, not only calm, nourish and hydrate the skin, but also locks in moisture. The ideal final step in your dry skin routine.

OILY SKIN

The biggest myth of having oily skin is that you have to deprive your skin of moisturizing products. Oily skin is caused by the overproduction of sebum, and is off-balance. The solution is to work towards balancing your skin and incorporating ingredient-driven products into your routine. Two of the best balancing ingredients for oily skin types are Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol. We have two beautiful products that happen to have these balancing ingredients:

  • HYDRATING PETAL CREAM boasts Hyaluronic Acid as a hero ingredient in the formula, and because this daily cream is so light-weight and absorbs quickly, it's the perfect hydrator for oily skin as well.
  • SACRED SLEEP OVERNIGHT REPAIR is our 0.5% Retinol solution formulated as an overnight treatment. Retinol is a powerful ingredient as it can aid in building up collagen and firming the skin. As a result, you can experience tighter pores that emit less oil for a more balanced complexion. 

SENSITIVE SKIN

We have a special place in our hearts for those with sensitive skin. So much so, that every formula we create is infused with calming ingredients that soothe the skin and counteract any active ingredients traditionally known to irritate sensitivities. If you have sensitive skin, then you know it can be difficult to find products that are gentle enough to be effective, but also that don’t cause flare ups, redness or inflammation. We especially love recommending these products to our clients with sensitive skin:

  • THE C-DROPS, our gentle yet effective 10% Vitamin C serum, is the perfect solution for those with sensitive skin. Vitamin C is a highly active ingredient, and traditionally can be problematic for sensitive skin types. When we formulated The C-Drops, we included powerfully calming ingredients to counteract any harshness that Vitamin C delivers. These Vitamin C brightening drops are gentle but still very effective. 
  • LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM has been a cult-favorite among our sensitive skin clients. This golden elixir is centered around visibly calming and soothing the skin from concerns like redness, irritation and inflammation. Among the many ingredients in the efficacious blend are Sunflower, Helichrysum and Marula that are naturally calming for the skin.

COMBINATION SKIN

This skin type can be tricky, as your skin can experience many concerns at once. Dry and oily areas in the same complexion need balance. Incorporating products that hydrate dry areas and exfoliate/resurface oily areas are important in your routine. Combination skin will greatly benefit from the same products recommended for both DRY and OILY skin types:

NORMAL

If your skin falls in the “normal” category, then lucky you! Your skin is balanced and can handle both hydrators and active treatments (all of the above!).

Simple Skincare Rituals for Every Skin Type

simple skincare rituals featuring the hydrators and the resurfacers

At SAINT JANE we believe in clean skincare infused with Luxury Active Florals that deliver powerful results. No matter your skin type or skin concerns, there is a simple routine that can help you achieve optimal skin wellness. Incorporating a few products into your morning and evening rituals, can not only be beneficial for the skin but also empower beautiful moments of self-care. 

the hydrators hydrating skincare set

The Hydrators

Hydration is a key factor in having healthy, balanced skin. Whether your skin is dry, combination or oily, applying products that deeply hydrate will rejuvenate your skin so it looks and feels smooth and soft. The outermost layer of the skin needs moisture to flush away toxins and carry nutrients to the skin’s cells. Skin that is well-hydrated also is less sensitive to irritants and germs that can slip through the lipid barrier when the skin lacks moisture.

For deep skin hydration, we recommend The Hydrators, which is our duo featuring Hydrating Petal Cream + Luxury Beauty Serum:

  • First apply Hydrating Petal Cream after cleansing and toning. This daily drench is the perfect lightweight moisturizer that is infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Hibiscus Peptides that boost elastin and deliver moisture to the skin.

For an extra dose of rich hydration, next layer our hero product Luxury Beauty Serum over top as a last step. This serum is packed with nutrients and omegas that nourish and along with ultra-hydrating Luxury Active Florals like sunflower, rosehip and jojoba.

the resurfacers skincare set

The Resurfacers

In order to achieve that petal soft skin, incorporating products that have actives to renew skin cells and gently resurface is essential.  Resurfacing serums increase cell turnover and gently renew skin cells to reveal more youthful, glowing skin underneath. They are formulated with chemical exfoliators, which are gentle, low-percentage acids. These types of products really help prep the skin to receive hydration and other nutrients from your other skincare.

For gentle skin resurfacing, we recommend The Resurfacers, which is our face and body duo The C-Drops and Luxury Body Serum. These two products deliver head to toe glow.

  • For the face, apply The C-Drops in the AM after cleansing. This ultra-brightening serum uses gentle citrus actives and Vitamin C to gently resurface the skin revealing a smooth glassy glow.
  • For the body, apply Luxury Body Serum after a bath or shower for best results. Packed with 28 omega-rich botanicals and exfoliating fruit acids, this silky serum reveals soft, radiant skin all day long. 

Having skincare rituals that resurface the skin, renew skin cells and deeply hydrate can help achieve a myriad of skin goals. The key to overall skin wellness is balance, and incorporating these simple routines into your daily practice is a powerful way to get there.

Worth the Hype: The Serum with 900+ 5-Star Reviews

luxury beauty serum

 

Luxury Beauty Serum was the very first product we created. It holds a special place in our product lineup and quickly rose to cult status among those looking to tackle skin concerns like redness, inflammation, dryness, and dullness to name a few. With over 900+ 5-star reviews across the web, Luxury Beauty Serum has transformed so many complexions and re-written skin stories. We read every single, authentic review and it not only reinforces our healing mission but inspires us to keep creating and innovating transformative skincare formulas.

Simply put, Luxury Beauty Serum is worth the hype, our concept is proven and the skincare community has spoken…but what truly makes this miracle elixir so special? Just a few drops as a last step in your skincare routine will provide multi-correctional benefits. This serum can truly do it all.

Calms Redness

Whether you have sensitive skin, mild redness or struggle with eczema or rosacea, Luxury Beauty Serum acts as a super-soothing treatment. Harnessing the ultra-calming and protective properties of ingredients like Sunflower and Calendula to soothe irritated skin, when it comes to calming redness, the results speak for themselves. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“I've had bad eczema my whole life and this calming serum has helped soothe it naturally without any burning, oily residue, or chemical ingredients!” — Rachel G.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Takes all redness away. I have mild rosacea and it gets exacerbated by everything that touches it! This product calms my skin down within seconds of applying it. My skin is much less flushed throughout the day when I have this on. Three drops covers my entire face -- a little goes a long way.” — Heather G.

Clears and Detoxifies

When it comes to blemishes and acne prone-skin, Luxury Beauty Serum is a powerful detoxifier. We hand selected several Luxury Active Florals like Helichrysum which are natural antibacterial ingredients to keep skin clean and free of toxins that often cause break-outs. Anti-inflammatory ingredients like Sea Buckthorn, calm existing breakouts while simultaneously helping to prevent future flare ups by controlling excess sebum production.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“I’m 37 and have struggled with breakouts well into my adult life. I’ve tried everything. Well, I think I finally have the final product and started using this every night. Everything is better! No breakouts!" — M. Charisma

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Most incredible skin product I’ve ever tried! I have tried A LOT of fancy skin products, but none of them come close to this product. My face has never been so clear and even-toned. My skin is SO happy.” — Holly W.

Deeply Hydrates 

Oily and dry complexions alike need hydrating and nourishing moisture. When a skincare product like Luxury Beauty Serum works overtime to detoxify and calm the skin, if it's not delivering moisture, then it's incomplete. The drenching hydration this serum delivers deep into the skin is unparalleled. We infused every bottle with ultra-hydrating ingredients like Prickly Pear and Rosehip that naturally moisturize the skin. You are left with skin that not only is calm and clear, but plump, soft and supple.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"The best serum out there!!!! WOW!!! I've been using so many different face serums and finally found one that I can't live without. The texture is amazing and absorbs so quickly into my skin.  I have the hydration and glow I've been looking for." — H.M.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Holy Water of skincare products! I religiously use the beauty serum at night before bedtime. It makes my skin feel amazing and I wake up with soft, smooth and plump skin. I've used other oils and serums but this is my go-to beauty product especially during the fall and winter months when my skin craves more moisture.” — Louise W. Continue reading

ICONIC INGREDIENT: RETINOL

Have you heard the news? We’ve added Retinol, a powerhouse skincare ingredient by anyone’s standards, to our impressive ingredient list with the launch of Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair. This renewing treatment of Luxury Active Florals and powerful Retinol restores while you dream. Before you click *add to cart*, learn more about our innovative new formula and how it can transform your skin!

What is Retinol?

There are few skincare ingredients more renowned than Retinol, but do we actually know what it is and what it does for our skin? Retinol is a powerful antioxidant and a derivative of Vitamin A. When applied topically, it converts to retinoic acid and has the ability to penetrate deeply into skin. 

 

Retinol has become a coveted skincare ingredient partially due to its anti-aging ability. At once this hardworking ingredients can increase cell turnover, reduce evidence of sun damage, improve texture, minimize fine lines and pores…the list goes on. See some of the many benefits of Retinol below:

 

  • Reduces visible signs of aging by increasing cell turnover and diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boosts collagen production and inhibits the enzyme that breaks down collagen and elastin
  • Evens skin tone and reverses sun damage by fading hyperpigmentation
  • Improves skin's texture by resurfacing to reveal a smoother complexion
  • Helps prevent breakouts by detoxifying pores and controlling overactive oil glands

 

While Retinol sounds like a no-brainer to add to your skincare regime like, yesterday, it’s important to understand the potential for adverse side effects. Many people suffer from irritation and retinol sensitivity while acclimating to using a retinol-based product. There are many ways to reduce Retinol sensitivity, such as using the product less frequently and being mindful of what other ingredients you combine it with. 

 

How Is Sacred Sleep Different From Other Retinol Products? 

When formulating Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair we wanted to ensure we delivered all the benefits of retinol while minimizing or eliminating its less desirable side effects. We paired .5% retinol with a host of inflammation and irritation fighting ingredients powered by our signature luxury active florals. Here are a few of the soothing florals found in Sacred Sleep:

 

  • Violet Flower: This soothing flower soothes dry, chafed skin and alleviates irritation
  • Elderberry Flower: Rich in antioxidants, elderberry rejuvenates skin and promotes healing
  • Lavender: This healing herb reduces inflammation and redness

    LUXURY ACTIVE FLORALS: PINK LOTUS

    If you’ve tried our award-winning Hydrating Petal Cream, you know that we formulated this featherweight cream with 10 floral essences, each with their own specific benefits for skin. One of the most historically symbolic of these Luxury Active Florals is the Pink Lotus flower. 

     

    Of all the florals in our meticulously-clean formulas, the Lotus has perhaps one of the richest histories. It was revered as a symbol of purity and tranquility in several cultures. To the ancient Egyptians, it was a symbol of rebirth due to the way the flower recedes into the water at night and re-blooms fresh every morning. In Hinduism and Buddhism, the Lotus is a symbol of purity, renewal, and enlightenment. The color of the flower is also significant in Buddhist teachings, with pink being considered the ‘true lotus’ of Buddha.

     

    The benefits of Pink Lotus in skincare are not dissimilar to the reasons it was beloved by ancient civilizations. A powerful antioxidant with anti-aging capabilities, the sacred flower is a natural fit in Hydrating Petal CreamThe lotus contains a potent amount of polyphenols and flavonoids, including Kaempferol, which is known to have the highest antioxidant level amongst 35 types of flavonoids. These help protect against free radical damage, which is a leading cause of visible premature aging. An additional benefit to preventing damage from environmental factors is that in doing so collagen and elastin production are protected, which enables the skin to remain youthful for longer.

     

    Lotus is also a rich natural source of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids, which gently resurface skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By removing dead surface cells, newer, brighter skin is allowed to shine through. While the AHA content may sound unappealing to those with sensitive skin, the flower also contains many soothing properties to counteract any irritation caused by the AHAs. Lotus is a natural anti-inflammatory, which soothes redness and stressed skin. It also replenishes moisture and is naturally healing, it is even frequently used in natural medicine for wound healing. 

     

    Finally, Lotus is oil-balancing and purifying due to its ability to absorb toxins from skin and clear the complexion. It helps control sebum production without stripping skin of its natural moisture, meaning its safe to use for those with oily or acne-prone skin.

    THE ULTIMATE SAINT JANE FACIAL

    Facial smoothing stones have become all the rage with aestheticians and influencers alike. In fact, you’ve probably seen them floating around your Instagram or TikTok feeds on more than one occasion. Users swear by their ability to depuff and contour the face, but you’re certainly not alone if you’ve ever looked at one and thought, “How the heck am I supposed to use this?”. Not to worry – we’ll guide you through the step-by-step process using our Obsidian Smoothing Stone coupled with Luxury Beauty Serum and Hydrating Petal Cream for the ultimate SAINT JANE facial!

     

    Step 1 – Prep

     

    On a freshly cleansed face, apply one full dropper of Luxury Beauty Serum. The omega-rich formula not only delivers a boost of nutrients, the oil also helps saturate the skin to ensure the best canvas for the Obsidian Smoothing Stone. The anti-inflammatory properties in the serum augments the depuffing power of the stone for your most radiant results.

     

    Step 2 – Smooth

     

     

    Using the below diagram as a guide, glide the Obsidian Smoothing Stone across your face in the directions shown using sweeping, fluid motions. Pressure, as well as direction, is important. Pressing too hard will not increase the effectiveness of the tool, instead you should think of pulling rather than pushing on the skin. Gliding the stone across your face in this manner promotes better blood circulation which in turn helps to depuff.

     

     

    Start at the base of the neck and follow the arrows in upward motions as shown. Repeat each stroke 5-10 times for optimal results. Make sure to sweep the stone all the way to the outer edges of your face with each stroke.

     

    Step 3 – Lock In The Results

     

     

     

    As a finishing step, we love to apply Hydrating Petal Cream to lock in the benefits from steps 1 and 2. The 1% pure hyaluronic acid formula delivers hydration for plump, glowing skin while floral essences like Magnolia soften and smooth. Hibiscus seed peptides, dubbed “Nature’s Botox”, promote elastin production for firm, contoured skin.

    10 FLOWERS, 10 BENEFITS: DISCOVER THE POWER OF FLOWERS FOR YOUR SKIN

     

     

    Since Saint Jane began, using meticulously clean, natural ingredients has been one of the most important principles we’ve stood by as a brand. When developing our new Hydrating Petal Cream, we approached the formulation with the same principle in mind. Inspired by petals and their ability to retain their beauty through hydration, Hydrating Petal Cream uses the power of 10 floral essences to moisturize and smooth the skin.

     

    While “floral essences” may sound beautiful and luxurious, and they are, their benefits go far beyond their gorgeous packaging. Each of the 10 flowers in Hydrating Petal Cream was chosen for their unique capability to aid your overall skin wellness. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the power of these hardworking botanicals.

     

    Daisy: In addition to its ability to brighten skin, Daisy contains a combination of polyphenols which are known to suppress melanin production, which enables it to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

     

    Frangipani: As a powerful softener, Frangipani works to soothe dry, cracked skin. The result is a more supple, toned complexion.

     

    Full Flower Hemp: One of the most sought-after skincare ingredients, Full Flower Hemp extract is most known for its anti-inflammatory properties. It has the ability to soothe skin suffering from the effects of conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea.

     

    Hibiscus: Known as “Nature’s Botox”, Hibiscus is an ingredient with a multitude of benefits. As a rich natural source of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids, Hibiscus gently resurfaces and renews skin. We even devoted an entire post to this hero ingredient, which you can read here.

     

    Honeysuckle: Honeysuckle's benefits for skin are numerous. It is a natural antibacterial agent as well as an anti-inflammatory, which means it has the ability to reduce the frequency of breakouts and calm any that occur.

     

    Jasmine: In addition to its anti-septic properties, Jasmine hydrates and restores the skin to increase elasticity and fade scars and hyperpigmentation.

     

    Magnolia: Magnolia has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine due to its powerful anti-inflammatory abilities. It’s also a potent antioxidant, reduces skin redness, and help prevent the loss of elasticity.

     

    Mimosa: Mimosa is a coveted skincare ingredient for its ability to boost collagen and therefore delay skin aging. It also firms and smooths skin for a more youthful appearance.

     

    Pink Lotus: As a rich source of Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids, Pink Lotus works to exfoliate the skin’s outer layer and allow younger cells to come to the surface. It also shrinks pores and calms red, irritated skin.

     

    Sunflower: A potent antioxidant, Sunflower helps prevent premature signs of aging and its emollient properties protect the skin’s outer layer.

     

     

    Would you believe us if we told you that despite infusing Hydrating Petal Cream with so many potent botanicals, the resulting formula is not heavy or sticky? The impossibly lightweight cream is packed with so many nutrients, you’ll quickly see why it has become a Holy Grail product!

    SACRED BOTANICALS: HIBISCUS

    We don’t use the term “hero ingredient” often or lightly, but Hibiscus is justifiably a hero ingredient. As a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and anti-aging antioxidants, Hibiscus has more than earned its “Nature’s Botox” moniker. It’s no wonder we blended potent Hibiscus Seed peptides into our new Hydrating Petal Cream.

    You might be wondering what makes Hibiscus any different than other skincare ingredients that claim a myriad of benefits for your face. There are so many ingredients out there that claim to do this or fix that, it can be overwhelming trying to work them all into your routine. One of the things we love most about Hibiscus is that its potent peptides pack multiple benefits into this one ingredient.

    Hibiscus is not only rich in antioxidant Vitamin C, a powerhouse skincare ingredient by anyone’s standards, it also contains anthocyanosides. Anthocyanosides neutralize free radicals, a major source of skin aging, and act as an anti-inflammatory to visibly calm stressed skin. Those with sensitive skin know how hard it can be to find a powerful skincare product that doesn’t cause irritation as an unfortunate side effect. Due to its inflammation-fighting capabilities, Hibiscus is one of the rare ingredients that can do both. In case those benefits weren’t enough,anthocyanosides also act as an astringent and minimize the appearance of pores.

    Fighting signs of aging isn’t the only superpower in Hibiscus’s arsenal. It’s also a rich source of AHAs. These gentle exfoliators increase cell turnover, reduce breakouts, and brighten the complexion without stripping the skin of its natural oils. They also improve skin’s texture and reduce the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation over time.

    Finally, Hibiscus has a high mucilage content. Mucilage is a substance created by plants to help them retain water and nutrients. It works as an intense hydrator for skin and improves skin’s ability to retain moisture, resulting in a supple, youthful complexion.

    Hibiscus is just one of many hardworking botanicals we use in our products. Clean, potent ingredients are the focus of our formulations, and the results speak for themselves. Incorporate our new Hydrating Petal Cream into your skincare routine and experience the power of Hibiscus for yourself.
