Saint Jane Beauty has yet to make a product that my skin hasn’t fallen right in love with. The CBD-based luxe skin-care brand has reached cult-classic status with their soothing Luxury Beauty Serum that feels more like a face oil than a serum, and the C-drops, another luxe oil formula that brightens and evens skin tone.
If you have sensitive skin and you’ve ever had to incorporate actives into your skin-care routine, you know it can be a scary scenario. Thankfully, the anti-inflammatory properties of the brand’s calming whole-flower CBD formulations really help my reactive skin with tolerating other active ingredients that would normally turn it red. In that same way, their new Hydrating Petal Cream ($68) is blended with hibiscus-seed peptides, which act as a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids.
Hibiscus is also rich in vitamin C, which makes the smoothing petal-cream also a brightener. The natural active also contains anthocyanosides which can neutralize free radicals and calm stressed skin similarly to CBD. Pink lotus, honeysuckle and magnolia flower essences nourish and hydrate leaving skin petal-soft and provide a relaxing, natural scent.
For those who are not keen on face oils but have been curious about Saint Jane, the lightweight and fast-absorbing Hydrating Petal Cream can moisturize, brighten and help minimize the look of pores without that slick, oily feel that some people dislike on their skin. Just a pump or two of the hyaluronic acid–based cream morning and night gives my skin what I need to give it a plump look while nurturing dry skin. It’s so multi-functional that beside my cleanser, it’s the only skin care I took with me on my recent weekend trip out of town. I’m happy to report it was truly all I needed to keep my summer skin looking and feeling glowy and smooth.
