You know that expression "You are what you eat"? It's more true than you think, and to no one's surprise - what we put in our body really does affect the way we think, feel, act, look, and function on a daily basis. This same principle applies to skincare and makeup; if you put low quality and harmful products on your skin, your skin will react accordingly (in other words, poorly!). Seasoned cosmetic afficionados have tested the waters of every skincare line available only to find that they create more skin problems than what they started with.
Along comes insightful and innovative entertainment industry veteran Jane Iredale. She noticed this pattern while working with actresses and models who were suffering from the negative effects of constantly wearing substandard makeup brands. Being the astute problem solver that she is, she developed an idea for a makeup brand that would not only be effective in making skin look more beautiful, but effective in improving the skin's quality and health simultaneously. After much trial and error, we think it's safe to say that her idea was wildly successful, and that Jane Iredale Cosmetics are some of the best products for sensitive skin available today.
Got Beauty has no shortage of employees and clients who are obsessed with Jane Iredale, but we thought it was probably time to give a quick rundown for those who may not know about it just yet. If we can't convince you, try skimming through the latest Allure Magazine, Vogue, and W Magazine issues...you may find that we're not Jane's only fans.
The "Four-In-One" Benefits
The Amazing Base, PurePressed Base, Glow Time and Dream Tint products all serve as foundation, concealer, sunscreen, AND contain active skin care benefits. What this means is that you're wearing makeup that not only improves how your skin looks, but makeup that also heals and enhances it. One of our Jane Iredale education representatives told us that using any of these products is similar to cutting out junk food from your diet or quitting smoking; you're upgrading the quality of what you put on your body, and the results speak for themselves!
They allergy test their products...and we mean SUPER allergy-test.
Jane Iredale conducts exceedingly thorough testing on their entire line. Each of their products are safety tested, allergy tested, clinically tested, AND dermatologist tested (and did we mention cruelty-free?). For this reason, its chance of causing a sensitivity reaction is extremely low. Speaking as someone who has incredibly sensitive skin and a tendency to have breakouts, I can say that the Jane Iredale Pressed Powder is the only foundation I've ever used that doesn't irritate my skin and make acne worse.
Jane Iredale products are ideal for those suffering from acne.
One of the characteristics of Jane Iredale products that make them so ideal as a coverup for acne is the fact that they are all certified non-comedogenic. What this means it that their foundation acts as a protective barrier on the skin that allows it to breathe and function normally, which means no clogged pores....which means less acne! Certain products such as the Zap and Hide Blemish Concealer Stick actually treats acne while effecively covering it up.
Six of their most popular products have built-in sunscreen.
Six of Jane Iredale's products (PurePressed Base, LipDrink, Amazing Base, Dream Tint, Glow Time, and Powder Me) have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. For the record, you cannot earn this seal without scientific data proving that it successfully aids in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin. The titanium dioxide and zinc oxide in the Jane Iredale bases literally block UV rays by acting like tiny mirrors on the skin that deflect any rays of sun. Pretty neat, huh?
