With sheet mask selfies and bath bomb snaps on the rise, it’s evident that at-home skin care is becoming more and more popular by the day. And while grabbing a quick sheet mask or under-eye patch is an easy way to practice self-care while catching up on our social media, reaching for an authentic, make-it-yourself mask paired with traditional breathe-it-in aromatherapy isn’t usually at the forefront of our minds when we get home from a long day. That’s one of the reasons why the concept behind Jillian Wright Skincare, a luxury natural skin care brand that has recently relaunched itself, is so refreshing to me and thousands of others who value both time to unwind and quality products to help make the most of it.
“At-home self-care is the new black,” founder Jillian Wright tells us. “More and more people are taking control of their ‘Zen’ by loving their skin, wellness and bodies on a daily basis. They are carving out me-time at home to improve the quality of their lives because they can. We are giving ourselves permission to feel good, look good and be confident in our own skin,” she says, adding that healthy skin and a healthy, confident attitude leads itself for better productivity, happiness and peace. “It all stems from self-worth and acceptance and bringing the spa experience to a private space feeds a positive, loving existence.”

Wright is correct, as setting aside just a few minutes on one or two nights every week to do a simple face mask or enjoy a relaxing bath does wonders for your stress levels and sense of calm. To get your at-home spa routine off on the right foot, the brand just debuted new packaging and products for 2017, including a Coconut Cleanser ($19), Energy Misting Elixir ($22), Blemish Buster Spot Treatment ($20), Illuminata Hydrating Eye Gel ($45), Bee Hydrated Moisturizer ($65) and Premium Reserve ($150)—but the ultimate offering that got me hooked? The brand’s Glow Masks ($50)—both the Signature and Detox options are incredible—which, when combined with the Mask Mixing Bowl ($28) and Brush ($19) (Wright collaborated with Faith Adams for the bowl and the London Brush Company for the vegan brush), make you feel like you’re in the middle of a five-star spa.
The idea behind these best-selling powder-based face and body masks is to combine them with the line’s elixirs or water to make a paste that suits your liking inside the bowl (you can even add your favorite facial oil to make the experience even more luxurious) before applying it to your face or body with the facial brush. This step may seem unnecessary, but somehow, it adds an extra sense of calm and serenity to the process that will keep you coming back to it. Wash off the mask after 10 to 20 minutes (it will feel hardened when it’s ready to go) and your skin will be glowing and radiant, much like your mood and confidence. And that’s exactly the point. After two decades as a spa owner and giving more than 12,000 facials, Wright’s first-hand approach is simple: The way you feel about your skin directly impacts your confidence and self-esteem. We’re right there with her, so why not join us in putting in a little extra time and effort? Your skin and state of mind will thank you.
