Prep and Prime Like A Pro! Makeup Artist Approved Skincare ✓

Ask any makeup artist and they will tell you that the key to a flawless application is making sure your skin is properly prepped. It’s important to incorporate skincare products into your ritual that smooth, calm and hydrate your skin for a balanced complexion and a blank canvas for makeup. Prepping your skin with the right formulas help your makeup to go on smooth, melt into your skin and look more natural (and last all day!).

A LIGHT-WEIGHT, ULTRA-ABSORBENT MOISTURIZER

If your skin is dehydrated and dry, your foundation will never sit properly on your skin. A crucial part of skin prep before foundation is a light-weight moisturizer that delivers deep hydration, but also fully absorbs leaving zero greasy residue. Our HYDRATING PETAL CREAM does just that. Pure Hyaluronic Acid and Hibiscus Peptides deliver daily moisture that leaves your skin balanced before applying makeup.

Celebrity makeup artist KINDRA MANN counts on this moisturizer [Hydrating Petal Cream] often to prep skin before applying makeup for her clients. “The intelligent ingredients in this moisturizer make it a standout face lotion that I will use again and again and again,” she says.

A PORE SMOOTHING, PRIMING SPF

Our innovative sunscreen, LUXURY SUN RITUAL, has become a cult-favorite among makeup artists for not only protecting the skin with SPF 30, but also beautifully blurring pores and priming your skin for foundation. Read what just a few of these talented artists had to say about Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30 and it’s pore smoothing, priming benefits

“I have never seen anything like it! This formula works beautifully as a pore smoothing primer that offers a blurring, soft-focus effect on makeup with SPF protection as well.” - ALLAN AVENDAÑO, Celebrity Makeup Artist

“It is an essential part of my kit — whether creating a look for the red carpet or a photoshoot, its an SPF that checks all the boxes. It’s clean, mineral, reef-safe, sheer and invisible. It’s like a second skin. It feels so amazing.” — RENÉE LOIZ, Celebrity Makeup Artist

“I love this SPF because not only does it protect you from harmful sun exposure it’s also great for blurring pores which makes it an ideal 2-in-1 makeup primer.” — KENDAL FEDAIL, Celebrity Makeup Artist

PRO-TIP FOR A GLOWING COMPLEXION

One of our favorite makeup artist tips for glowing skin comes from HEBA THORISDOITTR, head makeup artist for the wildly popular film Don’t Worry Darling. Heba mixed a few drops of our LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM into the foundation for actress Florence Pugh to give her a glowing complexion in the film. The perfect pro-tip for giving your skin a glowing boost when applying your foundation and infusing extra nourishing skincare into your makeup look.

DON’T FORGET YOUR LIPS

Have you ever gone to apply your favorite lipstick and your lips are dry, preventing smooth and evenly distributed color? Not ideal. Keeping your lips smooth and hydrated is the key to preparing them for other lip products.

Our Luxury Lip Oils double as both a lip-drenching dose of hydration and a subtle wash of color to either wear on their own or to moisturize your lips before applying lipstick. Makeup artist REBECCA HICKEY reached for our Luxury Lip Oils on set of The White Lotus Season 2, to give the actors luminous, hydrated lips worthy of a Sicilian vacation.

Celebrity makeup artist LISA AHARON loves our Luxury Lip Oils for “keeping lips hydrated to create the illusion of volume that can be lost with age.” She adds that they can also “help to smooth lips and fill fine lines.” 

Incorporating just a few powerful, effective formulas into your skincare ritual can prep and treat your skin for your most flawless, long-lasting makeup application yet. Taking the time to prep your skin makes all the difference.

Winter Skin Solutions with SAINT JANE (Say Goodbye to Dry Skin)

Winter Skincare Favorites to combat Dry, Dull Complexions All Season Long

When the temperature drops, we bundle up with thick jackets, boots and scarves to keep cozy, forgetting that the skin on our face stays exposed to the harsh elements every day. It’s so important to give your skin extra TLC during the cold winter months because it stays constantly exposed to cold, dry air and unforgiving elements. In most places the temperature and the humidity both drop which is the least favorable conditions for balanced, healthy skin to thrive. Nearly all skin types struggle during the winter in some way, calling for a new skin ritual action plan. So what to do? Give your skin nourishing, moisture-drenching products that bring your skin back to life…all winter long, from head to toe.

Hydration Hydration Hydration

The most common effect of winter temperatures on our skin is loss of moisture. In order to bring your skin back to a balanced state of hydration, using a daily moisturizer from head to toe is essential. 

  • For the face: Our Hydrating Petal Cream is infused with Pure Hyaluronic Acid which powerfully draws in and seals moisture into your skin, for a long-lasting moisture boost. Apply 2-3 pumps every morning after cleansing and serums.
  • For the body: Our Hydrabloom Body Silk is the ideal daily body moisturizer for dry skin. Also formulated with Hyaluronic Acid + our Sea Flower Complex, our light-weight body silk intensely hydrates, absorbs instantly and beautifully combats dry winter skin.

Hydrabloom Body Silk

Smooth and Boost Brightness

Your skin can also become dull and flakey during the winter months meaning you need to incorporate products that have active ingredients to slough away dead skin, regenerate cell-turnover and prep your skin to receive moisture.

  • For the face: Our The C-Drops have 20% Vitamin C and citrus actives that work to visibly smooth and renew the surface of your skin, giving you a boost of brightness and a smooth canvas for all your hydrating products to layer over.
  • For the body: Luxury Body Serum is packed with citrus like Pink Grapefruit and Blood Orange that work to smooth dead skin for a boost of radiance and nourishment.

Don’t Forget Your Eyes!

Your under-eyes are the most delicate part of your face and often the first area to show signs of aging and distress. Our Bright Repair Eye Cream is ultra-hydrating with Green Tea and Grapeseed, but also brightening with 10% Vitamin C for total nourishment. Apply a liberal amount under your eyes every evening after cleansing and serums.

Retinol in Winter? Yes!

Incorporating treatments into your winter skincare ritual is also important to keep your skin ecosystem in regular balance…exfoliate, nourish, hydrate REPEAT.

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair

 

Especially in the winter months, incorporating a gentle Retinol treatment 1-2 times per week will help exfoliate dead skin cells and boost cell-turnover. Our Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair is the ideal Retinol treatment for winter, because in addition to the 0.5% Retinol in the formula is Violet Flower and Lavender which are both extremely calming florals. These active ingredients are infused into an ultra-rich, hydrating night cream that keeps your skin moisturized and plump while you sleep. Apply 1-2x per week as a last step in your evening skincare ritual.

For those evenings where you aren’t using Sacred Sleep, our best-selling Luxury Beauty Serum can be applied as a last step for an ultra-rich drench of hydration and skin-calming nutrients. We blend active florals like Rose, Helichrysum and Sunflower to deeply nourish and hydrate your winter skin.

Body Like Silk: Discover Hydrabloom

Hydrabloom Body Silk Daily Moisturizer

When it comes to skincare, we often focus on our face; meticulously curating a suite of serums, treatments and hydrators to tackle a myriad of skin concerns. Why shouldn’t we show the same love and care to the skin on our body? We believe clean skincare is a head to toe ritual, delivering total skin wellness, solution-oriented results and indulgent self-care…all over.

Our first bodycare product, Luxury Body Serum, has quickly become an award-winning, cult-favorite for enveloping the skin in deep, rich nutrients, omegas and intense hydration. The formula is also brightening and smoothing with citrus actives like Blood Orange and Pink Grapefruit. It's the perfect body oil applied just out of the bath or shower and especially if your skin is in need of an extra boost of hydration.

Something that was missing from our luxury collection of face and bodycare was a daily body moisturizer that harnessed the power of active florals to deeply nourish the skin, provide lasting all day hydration, while still being light enough for everyday rituals. Hydrabloom Body Silk is our innovative, beautiful solution to everyday, all-over hydration.

Hydrabloom Body Silk Daily Moisturizer

Since moving to Southern California in recent years, I’ve been deeply inspired by the ocean and its innate ability to heal and calm the body and spirit. I started to research nutrients and flowers found in the sea and discovered how they can benefit the skin, especially with firming and toning.

Hydrabloom Body Silk was born from this inspiration, formulated with our unique Sea Flower Complex, which features a blend of sea flora and algae, packed with vitamins and minerals. It’s like having a green juice for your skin, restoring good-for-you nutrients your skin needs to thrive. Not only is our Complex nutrient-dense, but it also has firming and toning benefits.

Our love of flowers and their ability to nourish and heal the skin was central to sourcing and selecting ingredients for Hydrabloom. Wild Chamomile, Jasmine and Hibiscus are the skin-benefiting bouquet in this formula to help stimulate collagen, elastin and boost the skin firming effects of our Sea Flower Complex. This floral-medley combined with pure Hyaluronic Acid hydrates and plumps the skin for moisture that lasts all day long.

Developing the perfect texture of our daily body moisturizer was crucial. We wanted the formula to be silky and creamy, super hydrating yet easy to apply and above all fast-absorbing. It glides easily over the skin and the consistency is truly light and breathable, leaving behind rich moisture that is never greasy or sticky. It’s everything we’ve ever wanted in a body lotion but could never find...now it’s here to be a part of your daily, self-care ritual. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Our Gentle, Yet Powerful Approach to Anti-Aging

 

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair Retinol Treatment

Discover Your Beauty Sleep

Our award-winning Retinol infused night treatment, Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair is our gentle yet effective solution to anti-aging.  This powerful but gentle night treatment is one of our most innovative formulas. Our approach to Retinol is very intentional, and solution-oriented. We infused gentle, calming and hydrating ingredients like Violet Flower, Lavender and Evening Primrose to counteract the 0.5% Retinol, which can often be drying. You receive all of the incredible benefits of Retinol like diffusing fine lines, combating hyperpigmentation and age spots, without the irritation and dryness. After cleansing and toning your skin, apply Sacred Sleep as your final step 3-4 times per week. Incorporating Sacred Sleep into your evening ritual will have you waking up to restored and revitalized skin morning after morning. 

Retinol for All

The general skincare community has a love/hate relationship with Retinol. On the one hand, it is extremely effective when it comes to repairing the skin, blurring fine lines, smoothing skin texture and boosting collagen production, but on the other it can be harsh and isn’t ideal for sensitive skin, as an active ingredient.

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair breaks all the boundaries of a traditional Retinol in many ways. Our solution was to combat the strength of this powerful treatment with calming ingredients like Violet Flower and Lavender, to offset redness and sensitivity. Next, instead of creating a Retinol serum, like you typically see, we decided to infuse our 0.5% Retinol into a rich, ultra-hydrating night cream with Orchid and Evening Primrose that deliver lasting hydration. The result is the powerful toning, plumping benefits of Retinol with none of the redness, irritation or dryness from traditional Retinols.

Sacred Sleep is a hero product, especially for those with sensitive skin, which overall, 60–70% of women and 50–60% of men report having some degree of sensitive skin. This nightly treatment allows sensitive skin to experience the full effects of Retinol, safely and gently. 

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair Retinol Treatment Night Cream

Nightly Retinol + Daily SPF

Sacred Sleep’s innovative formula is centered around the fact that sunlight decreases the efficacy of Retinol and isn’t as effective during the day. Using a Retinol treatment overnight allows the full effect of this anti-aging ingredient to transform your skin while you dream. Beauty sleep is not a myth, especially when it comes to your skin. During sleep, your skin's blood flow increases, and rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure, reducing wrinkles and age spots. Sacred Sleep aids your skin’s natural, overnight process to further aid in building collagen and increase cell turnover for even more powerful results. 

 Retinol, even when formulated with calming ingredients like those found in Sacred Sleep, makes your skin more sensitive to UV rays. When incorporating a Retinol treatment into your weekly skincare ritual, you must be diligent about applying a daily broad-spectrum SPF 30, like our Luxury Sun Ritual, to protect your skin. 

Real Results

In an independent clinical testing panel of 60 women ages 30 to 59 who regularly used Sacred Sleep 3-4 times per week at night on clean, dry skin:

  • 100% found age spots and hyperpigmentation visibly reduced
  • 84% saw a significant reduction in fine lines
  • 83% did not experience peeling or redness
  • 74% found their skin was firmer and lifted

With continued, diligent use, Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair is a powerful treatment that delivers visibly smoother, plumper and more even-toned skin while you dream.

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.

    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.

    BLOOM AND BRIGHTEN

    Luxury Active Florals are at the heart of every SAINT JANE formula. We use dozens of different flowers and botanicals across all our products, each with their own unique benefits for skin.

     

    With the launch of our new Resurfacers bundle, which features our award-winning Luxury Body Serum and The C-Drops bundled together for the first time with exclusive savings, we wanted to highlight a few of our favorite renewing flowers in those formulas.

     

    Among the 28 omega-rich botanicals and exfoliating fruit acids in Luxury Body Serum is Damascus Rose flower oil. Known also as the Damask Rose and the Rose of Castile, the Damascus Rose is beloved for its heavenly scent. Its benefits are not just superficial, however, the oil is a coveted skincare ingredient because of its ability to renew and purify skin. A natural astringent and anti-microbial, Damascus Rose oil not only helps treat but also prevent breakouts. It also has the ability to speed wound healing, decrease hyperpigmentation, and promote a more even skin tone.

    Jasmine flower oil is another floral most-famous for its scent. However, like the Damascus Rose, Jasmine contains many hidden benefits for skin. We included Jasmine in Luxury Body Serum because of its ultra-hydrating properties. It has the ability to soothe and heal dry, irritated skin in even the harshest conditions. It has even been known to aid those suffering from skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. As an added bonus, it helps promote collagen production for plump, hydrated skin!

    You already know our cult-favorite The C-Drops contains a 20% Vitamin C blend, but did you know it contains 5 different types of exfoliating citrus fruit oils to help you achieve our signature glow? Orange Peel Oil is known for its ability to improve skin’s overall texture by promoting clarity and smoothness. It gently resurfaces to buff away dull, dead skin cells and reveal radiant skin. As an added bonus, it also helps promote good circulation and blood flow.

    One of the reasons we are able to pack such a potent Vitamin C blend into The C-Drops is our inclusion of 500mg of full flower hemp extract.  Full flower hemp extract is famous for its anti-inflammatory capabilities. Its ability to calm breakouts, soothe irritation, and reduce redness have made it one of the most talked about skincare ingredients in recent years. We love it because it allows us to pack so many clean actives into our products that work to renew your skin without irritation and other side effects!

    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.
