 Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Primer and Brightener

The Primer can be used as a primer before a makeup application. It can be used with or without your current moisturizer. In addition, the Primer can be used (on a freshly washed face) as a moisturizer before going to bed.

Using your fingertips, simply spread the primer evenly over your face until it is absorbed.

Jane Iredale Primer

This is non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, sensitivity tested, clinically tested, dermatologist tested. This is a personal preference aspect, but for those who do not wish to have a fragrance, I just want you to be aware that there is a very distinct grapefruit smell.

This product is gluten free; however, it is not Vegan, as it contains royal jelly.

The Primer did exactly as promised, “to even skin tone, minimize the appearance of pores and increase luminosity.”   It most definitely made my pores almost invisible. The brightening is supposed to improve your skin tone with repeated use. So, while I’m not sure I’ve seen my skin “brightened” yet, I can write that the Primer left it smooth, and very moisturized. I would write that it was dewy, so if you have oily skin, I’m not sure that this would be an appropriate primer for you. It’s winter here on the east coast, so even though I would normally always use a moisturizer, I did not need one with the Primer. It was actually too much moisture for my skin, and it looked, too “dewy.”

I love the packaging! There is a seal over the opening of the Primer! I have not had  a problem with squeezing just the amount of primer I want to use out of the tube. Yes, I guess the “downside” is that you’re not able to see how much is left in the tube.

price: $48.00 USD

jane iredale- The Skin Care Makeup

I have a terrific product that I will review: the jane iredale product, the Lip Drink. Jane Iredale founded Iredale Mineral Cosmetics in 1994, and her goal has been to “make products that look good, feel good and are good for the skin. Products must be easy to apply, as well, so that a woman can be her best in the shortest amount of time.”

This jane iredale product is SPF 15 from the lip balm’s active ingredient, zinc oxide. It is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, and when used regularly it can aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin. The Lip Drink provides Medium Protection from UVB/UVA rays.

I like that the lip balm tube is designed to appeal to both women and men. It’s not  just women that have to worry about skin cancer; men are equally at risk, of course! The lip balm is advertised as being colorless, which is true, but I do get a white tint on my lips.

This is practical for all seasons. Your lips can get scorched from the winter winds and the sun’s rays in the summer.

Another great aspect is that the Lip Drink has no petroleum-derived products. Jane Iredale reports that it is Vegan and Gluten Free. The smell and flavor is from lemon and carrot oils.

See the open jar symbol? That’s the EU (European Union) requirement that all boxes and labels contain that symbol with the number of months you can expect to use the product at its “optimal performance.”   So the period the consumer has on the Lip Drink is 12 months.
