I don’t even know where do start on how absolutely fabulous the Jane Iredale Eyegloss are! They are one of my cannot live without products. The Jane Iredale Eyegloss is a liquid eye shadow that offers a creaseless, sheer, shimmery wash of color. It is a beautiful shadow for those who like a natural look and it is also an incredible shadow base!

I used the Jane Iredale Eyegloss as a light eye wash on its own and as an eyeshadow base. What really stood out for me was the remarkable wearing power of the product on its own, and how it made shadows last for hours that would usually have been off in a jiffy!

I started using them when I went to the south of Turkey in August, the hottest time of the year, 40 degrees celcius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) and soooo humid. I had 3 huge events which lasted from about 10 am- 1 am the next day. They were all outside in the sun, heat and wind- which led to the rest of my makeup slowly melting away as the hours went. The Jane Iredale Eye Gloss saved the life and beauty of my eye shadow, every time! They come in a convenient sponge tip applicator, which actually blend the color very well, they are also in a tube so you can get out every last bit!

I tried 3 beautiful silk shimmer Eye Gloss, but they come in 7 other colors!

  • Champagne Silk – A beautiful light champagne/cream color that acts as a perfect neutral base for light-medium skin tones. Champagne silk was my favorite eye gloss, simply because of the color. It worked so beautifully to offer my eyes that beachy, wet look and works with any shadow over top because it is a totally neutral color.
  • Peach Silk– A sheer peach/pink color that gives a soft illuminating effect to the lid. Also a great neutral for light-medium skin tones. I used Peach silk under some of my cooler shades of shadow and loved the way it brightening anything that went on top!
  • Grey Silk– A Gorgeous cool slate grey color that adds depth and dimension to the lid. Perfect as a soft wash of pigment on the lid or as a base for your darker shadows. I used Grey Silk with dark colors, and loved the way it held my smoky eye in place!!!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum

Many women seem to neglect and overlook the importance of detail in their beauty care routine. Most of us realize that we must have a clean and moisturized face for optimal facial beauty, but what about our neck and decollete…? One of the first places you can detect a woman’s skin health and age is in her face and neck; so why do we wait until we have creppyness, dryness, age spots and lack of firmness in our neck area, to begin to do something about it? Prevention-Is-Key.  I asked myself this question, and despite still being in my 20’s with little to none of the above concerns, when given the opportunity to be proactive and try something, I thought, what the heck! I am really glad I did!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum is a beautiful anti-aging, hydrating neck serum packed with LOADS of skin repairing, nurturing ingredients. So even if you are not in dire need of anti aging on the neck area (yet), you are giving your neck and decollete a fighting chance to maintain its youthful firmness for as long as possible! If you already have major neck and decollete concerns, this product is going to help you tremendously with the repair of these concerns, and you will see a difference! The reason I can strongly say this? A  fellow, more mature skin specialist and I were both given one to try, she does have the above mentioned neck/decollete concerns, and she gave a rave review (not surprising with the quality of ingredients).

With my use of the serum, I noticed an incredible boost of softness and hydration. I typically have little patches of eczema, especially in the winter months, under my chin and on my neck. I was pleasantly surprised that within a week of using the serum, my little dry patches were smooth and undetectable. I did notice that my little natural gobble chin was also less gobbly, which was a great surprise. I absolutely adored the lightweight texture and how quickly the serum absorbed, as I do not particularly enjoy the feeling of something on my neck. The scent of the product is quite different, herbal and licorice. If you do not like these types of scents, do not fret, it dissipates withing 15 minutes.
My co Skin specialist, noticed an amazing improvement in the texture, hydration and firmness of her neck area/ decollete area. In a few words she said “It does the trick!”

So for any of you looking for a preventative measure to maintain the youth of your neck or decollete, or those of you that already have major concerns, the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum is for you.
