The Benefits of Pumpkin in your Beauty Regiment

Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Oreos, it's no news to anyone that when Fall is in the air, pumpkin is in the kitchen. But It's not just in the kitchen that Pumpkin is a big hit, it's widely used in the beauty industry. With properties such as vitamin E, zinc, alpha and beta-carotene, fiber, magnesium, and potassium, it's no wonder why pumpkin is making it's way onto service menus all over the beauty industry!

The Pumpkin has many great benefits, including Vitamin E  to help fight acne; Zinc which is fantastic for managing hormone levels and oils and it's vitamin content promotes the production of collagen. Pumpkin is said to have a "detoxifying effect" in which it  "supports healthy cell turnover" and is great for all skin types!

Facial Client Retail: Dermalogica & June Jacobs Powder Exfoliant Reviews

Estheticians often tell me that if they had to send their clients home with only ONE retail product to maintain beautiful, glowing skin, it would be an exfoliator.  Something gentle, but powerfully effective in sweeping away dead skin cells, brightening dull complexions and keeping skin clear of breakouts, thus keeping clients' skin looking great in between facial appointments. This is important for both the client and the esthetican because great product recommendations build trust and repeat business.

SO what to retail? 

Years ago, my esthetican sold me Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant after a facial: A dry, powder exfoliating polish that activates with water. I LOVED it devotedly for a few years. I have subsequently tried BareMinerals / Bare Escentuals - Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser and found it to be blah.  So when June Jacobs recently launched her Radiant Refining Exfoliating Powder,  I was eager to try and compare.  

Rice, Bamboo, Salicylic Acid & Papain
Leave Skin GLOWING!
#1 Retail to Clients!
The results of June Jacob's Radiant Refining Exfoliating Powder.... IT IS MY NEW OBSESSION!  My skin is not glowing - it is BEAMING.  All the little hormonal pimples I had bulging at the surface of my skin have retreated. My skin looks smooth, healthy, flawless and RADIANT, and it looks YOUNG!  Which, after just turning 40 last month, is very important!!  

Also, Radiant Refining Powder is Paraben Free! Dermalogica's Microfoliant is not. (My bottle of Microfoliant  has "Methylparaben" listed) 

I am also in love with the amount of anti-oxidants in June's formula.  Microfoliant has some, but JJ's Radiant Refining Powder has MORE - like: 
  • Bearberry Leaf Extract
  • Mulberry Fruit Extract
  • Lemon Fruit Extract
  • Willow Bark Extract
  • Goji Berry Fruit Extract
  • Pomegranate Fruit Ferment Extract
  • Grape Seed Extract
  • Red Tea Leaf Extract
June Jacob's is a world renowned name and brand in the five-star spa industry.  Her products are highly regarded for their natural properties and effective performance.
