Smell the Roses is back by popular demand!

IMC_SmellTheRoses-BackgroundRoses-1080x1080It’s back- the nourishing and uplifting Smell the Roses Hydration Spray from jane iredale!

This limited edition spray does wonders for your skin and also supports an incredible education and support organization, Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC). We are now in our eighth year of partnership with LBBC, whose mission is to connect people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support.

Every year we have introduced a special product with 100% of profits from your purchase going to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The Rise Above with Love campaign was created to honor the support network around women living with, and through, breast cancer.

Kevin Gianotto, associate director of marketing and partnerships at LBBC, explains how our donations impact LBBC and the women who rely on their services: “As a nonprofit organization, it would be impossible for us to provide people diagnosed with breast cancer access to free resources at the national level without the support of our corporate partner. That’s what makes our partnership with jane iredale so exciting.  You provide a funding source necessary for us to develop and initiate programs and services and a platform to introduce the services, as well. It really is full-circle.”

The donations from your purchase of our Breast Cancer Awareness products have helped over 10,000 individuals through community meetings, webinars, online content delivery and national conferences. It has allowed those affected to have resources such as a toll-free helpline, receive a distributed guide to Understanding Breast Cancer and online services at lbbc.org.

Smell the Roses Hydration Spray is refreshing and uplifting. Like all of our Hydration Sprays, Smell the Roses has been awarded ECOCERT’s Natural and Organic certification. The organic Rose Damascena Flower Water is an excellent skin tonic and cleanses the skin without disturbing its natural protective shield while the Rose Damascena Flower Oil and Extracts penetrate into deep layers of the skin. They nourish, tighten, cleanse, detoxify, increase blood circulation, calm and support the skin’s functions. Smell the Roses is recommended for any skin type, especially dry and sensitive skin. It calms inflammation and reduces redness. The scent helps you de-stress and provides you with an overall feeling of well-being.

Both pampering and charitable, you will feel good purchasing this for yourself or a loved one.

Weekend getaway makeup essentials.

Weekend With summer coming to an end, you may be ready to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to enjoy a little rest and relaxation this holiday weekend.  Whether you’re traveling to the seaside, the countryside or even to the big city this Labor Day, these essentials will ensure that you look and feel your best all weekend.

One item I always need in my bag for a weekend away is a Hydration Spray.  No matter your skin type, there is a Hydration Spray that is especially designed for you.  For oily skin, try Balance.  It’s formulated to balance the skin’s oils and help fight acne with its Green Tea Leaf Extract.  If you’re headed to the beach, the Pomegranate Extract in POMMISST Hydration Spray will help boost the performance of your SPF and minimize UV damage, while White Tea Leaf and Rosemary Leaf Extracts protect and soothe the skin, making POMMISST a perfect choice for a post-beach spritz. For dry or sensitive skin, try D2O Hydration Spray.  The Ylang Ylang Flower Extract and Essential Oil of D2O balance skin’s oils and the Chamomile Flower Extract helps calm inflammation and minimize dryness, itchiness and sensitivity.  Each of these Hydration Sprays can also all be used to to apply eye shadow wet for a deeper hue by spritzing your eye shadow brush before applying or turn eye shadows into eyeliners by spritzing any eyeliner brush then applying your shadow of choice.  Plus, they are all TSA approved, so you can carry them in your bag on your next flight (they are also great for a mid-flight refresher).

Fall 2015 makeup: ready to wear runway trends.

Summer is coming to an end, and if you’re located in most parts of the country you’re probably begining to feel the coolness of fall approaching. Every trip I take to the grocery store these days (and I’m there a lot) greets me with the unique smell of cinnamon, back to school has been in full swing and I’m even been looking forward to pulling out my favorite pair of boots. All of these signs tell me it’s time for a seasonal makeup refresh.

Spotted at Fashion Week this past spring were a number of new trends for fall, and some oldies but goodies. Elle Magazine did a lovely job of gathering all of these unique runway looks into one place. We took a few of our favorites and recreated them to be worn by you, even if you aren’t a fashion model. Whether you’re heading out for a night on the town, working in the office or picking pumpkins with your family, we hope these three looks inspire you to play with your makeup and step outside of the box this season. Click the images below to try our looks on in the jane iredale makeover room!

Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener and NEW Smooth Affair for Oily Skin

IMC_SmoothAffair-GroupWithSwatch-RT2-LR copyIf you’ve tried our Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener, you know how truly amazing it is. Smooth Affair is a skin-quenching primer that prepares your skin so that makeup goes on more easily and lasts longer. The green and white tea leaf extracts help promote anti-aging benefits and work to soothe and calm the skin, while the apple extract works as a skin-smoothing antioxidant that helps maintain the skin’s youthful elasticity. The grapefruit extract promotes luminosity and radiance. All of the amazing ingredients work together to smooth, brighten and nourish your skin while minimizing pores and visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

It’s no wonder that Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener won the ALLURE Best of Beauty Award in 2014 and has become one of our top selling products. However, we heard feedback that it wasn’t always the best primer for oily skin, and we love hearing your feedback and helping to create better makeup solutions that work for you, which is why we’re so excited to introduce the all NEW Smooth Affair for Oily Skin in addition to the original Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener.

Smooth Affair for Oily Skin uses revolutionary PoreAway technology along with state-of-the-art mineral science that visibly reduces shine and the appearance of pores to create an ideal makeup canvas. The titanium dioxides and iron oxides color spheres are color capsules that adjust to your skins color. Like the original, Smooth Affair for Oily Skin contains grapefruit extract to promote your skins natural radiance and luminosity and apple extract as a skin-smoothing antioxidant to help maintain skin’s youthful elasticity. Together the ingredients help to create a smooth, matte finish for an even skin tone without any added oiliness to your skin.
