The luxurious skin care products that comprise the pricey June Jacobs Spa Collection practically scream, “I’m from a fancy, high-end spa, and y’all better recognize! (pronounced reco-nize)”
Based out of New York, the indie line sells a wide range of popular spa products for face, body and hair containing nifty plant extracts and compounds like lycium barbarum (goji berry), viola odorata (sweet violet) and matricaria chamomilla (chamomile). The ingredients vary widely per product, so you might want to check the website or labels if there’s anything you’re trying to avoid. All of the products are free of parabens, petrochemicals, sulfates and (in most cases) synthetic fragrances and dyes.
Everything about the line fits with the pricey program, from the packaging to the textures to the scents and, of course, the prices too, which range from about $22 for a moisturizing hand wash to $140 for an age-defying serum. They’re sure to spruce up any room, even a dirty bathroom…
Yes, a dirty bathroom. For an all-too-brief moment, three June Jacobs products allowed me to pretend that my dirty @ss reading room (please don’t judge! I haven’t done much cleaning in weeks) was an oasis of serenity. Forget Calgon — June Jacobs took me away!
3 Products from the June Jacobs Spa Collection
Creamy Cranberry Cleanser — The name says it all. This rich, creamy cleanser has a light cranberry scent, and it leaves a light veil of moisture on my skin after it’s removed (I either wash it off or use a tissue). It doesn’t remove makeup very well, so you may want to remove any first before using. $44 for a 6.7-oz. bottle.
Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Masque — Holy paycheck this is pricey! This unscented, richly hydrating mask feels more like a (nice) thick balm to me. I slather it on after washing my face (concentrating on the dry patches on my nose and cheeks) and sometimes even leave it on overnight. Come morning, my skin feels and looks softer than a baby’s bum. I think it also works great on dry elbows and heels. $80 for a 3.4-oz jar.
Vanda Orchid Mist — The rosemary and geranium scent of this hydrating toner teleports me to the waiting room of a luxury spa. It’s only so-so as far as hydration, but I absolutely LOVE the scent. $48 for a 7.6 oz. bottle.
I like what I’ve tried from the June Jacobs line, but the prices are quite high. Lottery winners and Real Housewives may not mind, and skincare enthusiasts who love high-end indie brands might be willing to turn the other cheek.
