June Jacobs Hydrating Masque Review - Age Defying

In my 40's, my skin has taken on multiple personalities. One day I am dripping oil, another it is dry, flaky and tight.  I am always trying to find a product that can bring back the balance to my super sensitive skin without a breakout.
Packed with Potent
Anti-Oxidant & Moisture Rich
Ingredients to HUG skin.

Lately I have been using June Jacob's Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Masque as a rescue treatment to help balance my skin beautifully.

So what makes this mask so special? Well it combines potent anti-oxidants like white, red and green tea extracts, goji berry, pomegranate and grapeseed to to neutralize free radicals and protect skin from environmental toxins that cause pre-mature aging..

What else sets this miracle mask apart?

Sterocare™ - A botanical complex composed of red clover extract and lecithin designed to improve the
thickness of the skin by compensating for the deprivation of estrogen as a result of menopause.

Red Clover Extract - Derived from the plant grown wild in Europe and North America, it is rich in isoflavones - biochanin, daidzein, formononetin and genistein, which protect by stimulating the production of skin’s structural components increasing firmness and elasticity.

Lecithin - Derived from a combination of naturally occurring phospholipids, found in wheat germ, grains and soybeans, it acts as a humectant to maintain the water content of the skin and attract moisture to the skin, helping to facilitate cell growth by lessening healing time and minimizing trans-epidermal water loss.

Kombuchka™ - I LOVE to drink Kombuchka!  It is derived from the fermentation of sweet black tea, it is rich in organic acids and vitamin B, it improves overall skin quality and enhances skin radiance and color by restraining the “glycation” reaction allowing the skin to produce and use anti-oxidants.

Clients will LOVE
The way their skin
Looks & feels.
Dermolectine™ - A glycoprotein of plant origin with remarkable biological, “growth factor-like” properties. It stimulates fibroblasts providing a structural framework for elastin and collagen tissue to smooth wrinkles and help fight cutaneous aging.

Konjac Mannan - Also known as glucomannan, derived from the ground root of the tree which grows in southeast Africa and Asia, it acts as a humectant to maintain the water content of the skin and attract moisture to the skin creating volume in the skin’s appearance.

Sweet Almond Oil - Derived from almonds, it is rich in fatty acids, oleic and linoleic and vitamins A and E helping to soften and moisturize skin improving overall hydration.

This is an outstanding mask for ALL year treatment. It is available in professional size for esthetician back bar treatment and retail size, so clients can continue radiant looking skin at home.

Rose Oil versus Rose Hip Oil - Whats the Difference?!

Rose products have been popular since the times of Cleopatra, however, they are receiving a special focus this spring.  Two derivatives of the flower are a necessity
 for your spa services and can play their own key roles.

Rose Essential Oil is derived from the fresh blooming petals of the Rose Plant.  What may be surprising to most is that this delicate oil is a true workhorse for aesthetic procedures.  It is high in Vitamin C and is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and astringent  making it perfect for use on acne, aging and everything in-between skin.  Some say that Rose Essential Oil can be harsh if applied directly to the skin, so be sure to mix it with a carrier oil, lotion or cream before applying it to the skin.

Rose Hip Essential Oil, on the other hand, is derived from the fruit portion of the Rose Plant.  Also high in Vitamin C, this essential oil contains:
  • Retinol / Vitamin A - Powerful Anti-Aging Ingredient
  • Linoleic acid / Omega 6 oil
  • Oleic acid / Omega 9 fatty acid
  • Lycopene  - Powerful Antioxidant
  • Beta-carotene - Powerful Antioxidant
Unlike Rose Oil, Rose Hip Oil is gentle enough to be applied directly to the skin and has been shown to

  • Scars
  • Stretch Marks
  • Psoriasis
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Fine lines and Wrinkles
  • Acne Scarring
  • Skin Burns
  • Dermititus
  • Chicken Pox Scarring
  • Dry, Brittle Nails
  • Sunburns
  • Windburns
