skin care that improves the wear of makeup

Hello everyone! If you are a long time reader of the blog, you probably know that I am big fan of the Jane Iredale makeup and that’s pretty much the only product line I put on my face. Jane Iredale has all natural, good for you mineral makeup products that actually last and give you a natural look. My all time favorite is their loose mineral powder. It gives your skin the right cover, without clogging your pores. If you are fairly new on board, you may find this post interesting HERE where I break down my no fuss daily makeup routine.

skin care that improves the wear of makeup

Jane Iredale launched their first ever skin care that improves the wear of makeup, so I thought I’d gave this I try. I tested these products for 10 days and here’s my two cents on them with some product facts, of course.

BeautyPrep Face Cleanser

This no-rinse cleansing water promises a deep pore cleanse with nourishing Oat Amino Acids. I was surprised and a little suspicious first as I am used to thick cleansing milk or gel to get rid of every bit of makeup. Despite its water-like consistency, this product does deliver. I use it to cleanse my skin in the morning prior to toning and moisturizing and then at night to remove dirt and makeup. The BeautyPrep Face Cleanser contains a proprietary micellar water with dual cucumber extracts in liposome form that gently hydrate, smooth and protect the skin. It is rich in antioxidants and vitamins to reduce free radical damage, which is always a bonus. It took me a little getting used to since I am so set on using a thick milk or solid coconut oil to remove makeup.

BeautyPrep Face Toner

The promise: This gentle toner refines pores and moisturizes with organic botanical liposomes. Prepares skin for layering moisturizer and makeup and is infused with Herbasome, a fruit extract infused water, to provide deep skin hydration. Contains organic Lemon Grass, Apple, Pear, Carrot and Coconut Water to balance pH and restore the surface of the skin.

My two cents: I absolutely love this toner! It has a subtle, lemon-y and refreshing scent. It freshens up my skin and removes any last little bit of makeup or oil that I missed in the first step. I love to use this product during the day when I am home, just to give my skin a little refresh boost.

BeautyPrep Facial Moisturizer

The promise: This soothing cream moisturizes skin and helps prevent transepidermal water loss while protecting the skin from airborne pollutants. Prepares the skin’s surface so makeup goes on smoother and lasts longer.

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 transepidermal water loss.
  • Pale Rose helps to rebuild the moisture barrier and provide suppleness for the appearance of newer, softer skin.

My two cents: Honestly, I put my regular moisturizer to the side and started using this product instead. It’s amazing! The consistency is thick, but the cream applies very easily and absorbs instantly. I never felt any residue or film on my skin. The subtle lemon scent almost felt like a mini facial experience while applying the product (I like to do a quick facial massage while applying it, so everything absorbs). I would most definitely recommend it.

I am always a bit hesitant when I see a makeup line launching skin care products. I think the two are totally different areas and require lots of experience and expertise. I was pleasantly surprised by the BeautyPrep products and just like the Jane Iredale makeup line, these items set the bar high and over deliver. My absolute favorite has to be the facial moisturizer. It satisfies my always thirsty skin and it was so very easy to apply. If you are looking for a spring skin care kick start, give these a try! They are so worth it.
