At SAINT JANE, florals have always been our muse when developing our luxury, meticulously clean formulas with your skin in mind. Sustainably-sourced and respectfully harvested, our florals are hand selected to harness their innate abilities to deeply nourish, hydrate and protect your skin. These sacred florals have been used for centuries for their powerful benefits for skin wellness.
After more than 2 years of research and rigorous testing, we formulated our LUXURY SUN RITUAL SPF 30 with luxury active florals specifically known to thrive in dry, harsh, warm climates. Among these florals found in our innovative formula is DESERT ROSE, also known as “the resurrection plant” in Latin American culture. This resilient plant is known for its ability to spring back to life, surviving even the most extreme dehydration.
How is this possible? Scientists believe the DESERT ROSE is able to gather and store sugars and amino acids that strengthen the elasticity of its cell walls, which keeps them in tact. This rare and remarkable ability produces the same moisture-boosting super powers when applied to your skin. DESERT ROSE also acts as both a humectant and an emollient, meaning it takes on both roles of both drawing moisture into your skin, and locking it in place preventing moisture loss. Its dual-purpose roll even outperforms Hyaluronic Acid when it comes to hydration.
DESERT ROSE is a triple threat when it comes to skincare benefits. Not only is it deeply hydrating and effective in increasing moisture levels, but it also has a positive impact on your skin’s protective outer barrier. Because it is an emollient and can lock in moisture, it can strengthen your skin barrier, the protective layer of your skin. The stronger your skin barrier, the better your overall skin wellness. Skin density is also positively affected by DESERT ROSE. Increasing skin density can transform the way your skin looks and feels, with reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
How does DESERT ROSE perform in our sunscreen? Because wearing SPF should be a daily part of everyone’s skincare routine, formulating LUXURY SUN RITUAL with multi-tasking ingredients was important to us. The hydrating, protective, and nourishing benefits of DESERT ROSE allow this product to act as so much more than a sunscreen. Applying LUXURY SUN RITUAL every morning acts as a primer, moisturizer and sunscreen in one step. Ideal for sun-sensitive skin, your skin will stay hydrated and nourished while receiving crucial sun protection. Continue reading
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:
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:
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:
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:
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:
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!).

The summer sun is fast approaching and with more time spent outdoors, your skin requires a little more TLC. Feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin while lounging by the pool or taking a beach walk is pure bliss, but your body needs as much calming hydration as the skin on your face, post-sun. LUXURY BODY SERUM has quickly become a cult-favorite for incorporating into summer bodycare routines. We love this multi-tasking body oil for a multitude of reasons, but particularly for these three:
Your skin can turn from sun-kissed to sun-stressed in a matter of hours. If you’ve had a little too much fun in the sun, a slather of Luxury Body Serum goes to work to instantly calm and soothe your skin. Formulated with luxury active florals like Violet and Jasmine deliver calming properties to red and irritated skin. Applying this serum before bed will have you waking up to skin that feels comforted and renewed.
Besides redness and irritation, the biggest negative effect from over sun exposure is dry skin. The sun can rob your skin of the valuable moisture it needs to thrive. Luxury Body Serum has 28 (yes 28!) omega-rich luxury active florals, like Sunflower, Grapeseed, Avocado and Jojoba that deeply restore moisture. Even though the serum is rich in texture, it’s lightweight enough where it absorbs deeply into your skin and brings hydration levels back up.
Glowing skin for the summer will always be in style. Step out into the sun with radiant skin that is illuminated. Luxury Body Serum helps to boost your skin’s natural radiance with citrus actives like Grapefruit, Blood Orange and Lemon that work as a natural exfoliant. These ingredients help renew skin cells and leave your skin fully glowing.
Prepping your skin for a summer day with a full body shave? Applying Luxury Body Serum on legs, under-arms and your bikini area will help to soothe and hydrate post-shave. Razor bumps can be harsh and uncomfortable and adding our body serum to your routine can help to minimize irritation.
Razor Bump Beater
“For girls who get razor bumps EVERY time they shave— this is for you. I literally went years without shaving because I break out in horrible rashes every time I shave no matter what I use. THIS STUFF is the key. Put it on wherever you shaved while still wet and it instantly soothes. I haven’t seen a bump since I started using it this way. It’s magic. I’ll never go without it now!” S. Witten, Sephora Client
Long summer days can leave you mentally and physically drained by the time you are unwinding for the day. Luxury Body Serum is the perfect selfcare treat for a post-shower massage to relax tired muscles. The gorgeous vanilla bourbon scent fills the senses with a luxurious, calming effect. After the serum fully absorbs and you climb into the sheets, you’ll be greeted with deep relaxing sleep while the nourishing ingredients soften your skin overnight.
“This has enhanced my routine. I love the glow it gives to my skin and I use it for more sensitive areas or areas that tend to get sore and tired — calves, shoulders, décolleté, neck. It helps me relax too!” - Allie V., Credo Client
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
If you are looking for a few self-care rituals to help you unwind each night, look no further than our head-to-toe recommendations.Continue reading

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.

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:
