SAINT JANE x Batsheva SPRING/SUMMER 23 NYFW

SAINT JANE x Batsheva

 

Making our runway debut for the SPRING/SUMMER 2023 season, SAINT JANE was the exclusive skincare brand for the Batsheva Fashion show complementing the incredible runway looks with glowing, nourished skin.

“I am honored to be partnering with SAINT JANE on the beauty look for the show”, said Makeup Artist Francelle Daly. “I knew that the skin was going to play an important role in the look and both Batsheva and I wanted to amp up the innate glow of the skin and there is no better way to do this than with SAINT JANE’s nourishing formulas. Not only does the skin look and feel incredible, but the formulations are also perfect with makeup application. They are a dream to work with”

I was so excited to bring our signature SAINT JANE experience to the fashion world, for the very first time. Creativity and design are two of the hallmarks of SAINT JANE. Batsheva Hay and her eponymous collection represent some of the most beautifully creative and gorgeous designs to grace the New York runway. Her designs, much like our formulas, take inspiration from the past but embrace modernity and an unabashedly feminine spirit.

GET THE LOOK

Francelle Daly and her team exclusively used SAINT JANE products to achieve the beauty look for Batsheva’s show:

LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM – Used as a first step, our ultra-hydrating serum was used to prep the skin before makeup and ensure a nourished, glowing finish to the skin.

BRIGHT REPAIR EYE CREAM – Our eye cream was applied to the delicate eye area to boost brightness and visibly depuff tired eyes. It absorbs instantly and layers well with makeup.

“The scene was happening at Ben’s Kosher Deli on West 38th street. Busy Philipps, Chloe Fineman, and Coco Rocha hung out in booths while servers walked around offering coffee and orange juice. Of course this place could only be the setting for Batsheva’s spring collection.

This season Batsheva Hay wanted to challenge herself. “I started thinking about Gunne Sax, because I’ve so Laura Ashley’d myself out that I was like, ‘Let’s go into this more ’70s kind of vibe,’' the designer said after the show. “I was appalled by how I continually make such frumpy garments, and I thought, the only thing I can do is try to do something sexy, show more skin and make it sexy… or whatever.” The sexiness was there in the fabrics, like the white mesh with black flocked velvet stars that was used on a short princess sleeve cropped top with Batsheva’s signature ruffle on the chest, worn with a matching mid-rise maxi skirt (complete with red lace underwear visible underneath). It was also there in the Working Girl-esque ensemble of a slim button down shirt tucked into a pencil skirt with a peplum, all done on a red polka dot on white fabric and accessorized with a floral print tie and red polka dot mesh gloves.

The cast included Jordan Roth, Hari Nef, Charlotte Kemp Muhl, SamRon in a shiny red PVC dress, and Jemima Kirke and Alex Cameron, who opened the show in sort of matching white PVC wedding looks. “This felt like a really big show,” Hay said.

GO BEHIND THE SCENES

Backstage at fashion week is chaotic in the best way. So many hardworking creatives collaborate to present their heart and soul. We are so honored for the opportunity to send glowing skin down the runway as part of the beauty look for this incredible show. The first in what we hope will be many more appearances in the fashion space.

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. 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

FROM PETAL TO SHELF - OUR COMMITMENT TO CLEAN AND SUSTAINABLE INGREDIENTS

 

The term “clean beauty” gets thrown around a lot in our industry, but what does it actually mean? Clean beauty products are supposed to be made without ingredients shown or suspected to harm human health or the environment. The truth is, however, that government regulations in the United States regarding clean products have not caught up with those in Europe and other parts of the world. Companies are relatively free to define their own version of “clean”, which makes it all the more important that you do your own research about which products you’re bringing into your home and using on your skin.

 

 

At SAINT JANE, we have always been committed to formulating our products with clean, sacred botanicals that empower your skin. We embrace ancient ingredients and the benefits they hold, while understanding that we have a responsibility to do so sustainably. We acknowledge the ancient practices and cultures that have been using our ingredients for centuries, while taking the opportunity to modernize them in a responsible way. SAINT JANE’s formulas embody this unique collaboration between time-honored practices and traditions and modern green technology. The result is sustainably cultivated and performance-driven skincare products that nourish the skin and the soul.

 

When sourcing our ingredients, we employ a “glocal” approach. We partner with companies and farmers around the world to support their diverse cultures and empower their rich traditions in a modern and sustainable way with environmentally sound practices. Below are just few examples of how we source our ingredients:

 

  • Hibiscus: We work with a family owned and operated Hibiscus farm in Hawaii. These beautiful flowers are antioxidant rich thanks to the volcanic rich soil indigenous to the Islands. The Hibiscus are cultivated by hand to ensure efficacy.

 

  • Prickly Pear Oil: Native to Morocco, Prickly Pear has been revered by locals for centuries. Our oil is produced by a local company that has been in business for generations. Our partnership with this small, family operated company supports and sustains the community at large by providing jobs to thousands of people and helping to protect the land from industrial farming.

 

  • Yeast Extract: We chose to formulate our award-winning Hydrating Petal Cream with Yeast Extract as a sustainable way of eliminating animal collagen as an ingredient while still reaping the benefits of collagen for skin.

 

  • Fermented Algae: We’ve collaborated with an innovative French company which has discovered multiple ways of growing and harvesting sea algae in the open sea inside a private and protected sea farm where they cultivate algae - the flowers of the sea" on submerged systems to guarantee the perpetuation of the species.

 

In addition to thoughtfully curating our sourcing partners, we are also committed to transparency. We provide a detailed list of all ingredients used in each of our products on our website, as well as 3rd party lab testing results so you can be sure of the safety and efficacy of our products when choosing to incorporate them into your skincare routine.

SACRED BOTANICALS: FRANKINCENSE

 

You’ve most likely heard of Frankincense because it is said to be one of the three gifts presented at the birth of Jesus, but what exactly is Frankincense? A staple in Ayurveda and Ancient Chinese Medicine, Frankincense is an aromatic resin obtained from the trunks of the Boswellia tree. The aromatic sap was traditionally burned as incense and was said to ward off evil spirits and serpents. Native to what is now modern-day Oman, Frankincense became the most lucrative trade in the world until A.D. 400 and made southern Arabia the richest region of the world at the time.

 

The ancient Egyptians were among the largest consumers of Frankincense, with Queen Hatshepsut organizing the largest trading expedition in the country’s history at the time to open more trade routes and provide better access to the sacred resin. The Egyptians used Frankincense for everything from wound treatments to eyeliner, and unsurprisingly Cleopatra was one of the first to use it as a skin treatment.

 

 

The wound healing properties of Frankincense translate well into skincare. It’s a natural astringent that is renowned for its ability to balance both oily and dry skin. Not only does it help fight and prevent breakouts, but its ability also to promote natural cell regeneration enables it to reduce dark spots, scarring, and other forms of hyperpigmentation. By increasing cell turnover, skin’s radiance is also improved due to old cells being gently exfoliated away and newer, healthier cells shining through.

 

Frankincense is also a powerful skin protectant known to strengthen skin’s natural barrier and provide a tightening effect. This ability to improve skin’s elasticity makes it a coveted ingredient among those looking for natural anti-aging ingredients.

 

Finally, its potent anti-inflammatory properties make Frankincense a particularly desirable skincare ingredient this time of year when dry, irritated skin is common. Its calming abilities help improve the overall appearance of skin by reducing redness and other visible signs of distress.

 

 

It’s no wonder we included Frankincense among the 20+ luxury active florals in our cult-favorite Luxury Beauty Serum.

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.

SACRED BOTANICALS: POMEGRANATE

 Our award-winning Luxury Beauty Serum contains over 20 clean, hardworking botanicals. Each of them brings their own list of benefits to the table, and Pomegranate is no exception. In fact, the list of potential benefits that pomegranate holds for skin is so long, it definitely earns its super-ingredient title. 

 

As one of the world’s most ancient fruits, pomegranates have a rich history across many ancient civilizations. In early Jewish culture, the fruit was considered a symbol of sanctity and abundance. In China, it was a symbol of fertility, with Buddha often depicted holding a pomegranate to represent an abundance of sons. In ancient Greek culture, it became a symbol of rejuvenation and eternal life due to its association with Persephone, the goddess of spring. Given what we know now about the detoxifying and anti-aging properties of pomegranates, it is not surprising that the fruit was revered by so many ancient peoples.

 

 

Pomegranate is often lauded for its antioxidant properties, and for good reason. It contains approximately 48% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C, a skincare hero-ingredient by any standards, as well as other antioxidants such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid, and tannins. The high dose of antioxidants helps fight free radical damage and even protect against future damage. It also empowers cell regeneration and healing, which makes it an effective treatment for sunspots and hyperpigmentation.

 

If you’re like us, anti-aging benefits are one of the first properties we look for in our skincare ingredients. Pomegranate does not disappoint in this area. Studies have shown that pomegranate seed oil may help improve cell turnover and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also known to promote smooth, firm skin by empowering collagen and elastin production – two key ingredients for a more youthful complexion. It also not only stimulates new collagen production, but helps protect the collagen you already have, leading to even more anti-aging power.

 

Finally, pomegranate is rich in fatty acids and deeply hydrating due to its ability to penetrate to the deepest layers of skin. It is particularly effective in the winter months, as it helps prevent moisture loss to fight dry, irritated skin. However, those who suffer from acne-prone skin need not worry, pomegranate will not clog pores and even contains anti-microbial properties to help prevent future breakouts. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, which helps calm existing breakouts and soothes red, irritated skin. By reducing inflammation, circulation is improved which supercharges skin’s ability to heal and regenerate itself.

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 our nighttime 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.
