New from jane iredale, the BeautyPrep™ collection is a trio of skincare products specifically designed to prepare, protect and pump skin full of hydration so makeup goes on smoother and lasts longer. The BeautyPrep products – Face Cleanser, Toner and Moisturizer – may be used every morning before applying makeup and every evening to remove makeup residue and nourish the skin. The cleanser and toner both have been awarded ECOCERT Natural Cosmetics certification.
BeautyPrep™ Face Cleanser ($28) – This is my favorite product from the new collection! It’s a no-rinse cleansing micellar water that provides a deep pore cleanse with nourishing Oat Amino Acids. Great for removing makeup and cleansing skin prior to toning and moisturizing, it uses an antioxidant- and vitamin-rich natural formula with soothing dual Cucumber Extracts in lipisome form to gently clean and hydrate your skin.
I love how this micellar water completely removes my makeup (waterproof formulas, too!), dirt, and oil from the skin leaving it squeaky-clean and smooth, NOT stripped or dry! I simply pour a little product on a cotton pad, then wipe my skin clean — and it feels delightfully refreshing with its light cucumber scent! And it leaves absolutely no oily residue on the skin, so no rinsing is required but sometimes I just like to splash some water on my face and then dry off with a soft towel. I also like to use it in the morning after sleeping with a heavy night cream/treatment to refresh and prep my skin for makeup. Best of all, it’s 99.99% natural so perfect for acne-prone, sensitive skin like mine! It really is a dream product for lazy girls like me!
BeautyPrep™ Face Toner ($33) – This gentle toner is designed to refine pores and prepare skin for layering moisturizer and makeup. Infused with Herbasome, a Fruit Extract water that contains organic Lemon Grass, Apple, Pear, Carrot and Coconut Water, it moisturizes and restores the pH balance of the skin. I love that this toner is alcohol-free and in fact, the formula is 100% natural! Its push top applicator makes it very easy to pump & dispense the product. It does a good job of soothing and balancing out my dry/combination skin. No stinging or tightness! Overall, a very nice product that’s gentle & effective.
BeautyPrep™ Face Moisturizer ($45) This soothing cream has been formulated to moisturize, brighten and protect skin from water loss and airborne pollutants. It contains four organic Rose Stem Cell Extracts:
- White Rose supports natural cell regeneration and the skin barrier, while restoring suppleness.
- Damask Rose helps to tighten pores, purify and smooth the skin.
- Rosa Canina (Rosehips) calms and brightens skin and helps prevent trans-epidermal water loss.
- Pale Rose helps to rebuild the moisture barrier and provide suppleness for the appearance of newer, softer skin.
This natural moisturizer has a rich, somewhat mousse-like formula that’s wonderfully hydrating and absorbs quicky without any greasy feel. I have dry skin and didn’t find it heavy when used under makeup but those with combination/oily skin types might feel a bit different. The only thing I am not fond of is the lemongrass scent of this moisturizer, but again scent is very subjective so you might actually like what I don’t! Thankfully, it’s not too strong and fades away after some time.
The new BeautyPrep™ collection is now available at janeiredale.com. The BeautyPrep™ Face Cleanser (micellar water) is a must-have if you have been looking for a gentle & natural makeup remover…it’s a great pick for acne-prone, sensitive skin and worth the $$!
