Jan Marini C-Esta Cleansing Gel & Bioglycolic Resurfacing Body Scrub

jan-marini-c-esta-gel-cleanserJan Marini skincare products are amazing. I’ve used various products from the line for years. I recently had the opportunity to try out editorial samples of the Jan Marini C-Esta Cleansing Gel. Actually, I put a tube of it in the shower and since my BF was complaining about a minor break out (while exclaiming: I don’t get zits!) I decided to be kind and share my coveted skincare tricks with him. Use this, I said, and you won’t get zits.

Well, that was a few weeks ago and today I asked him if he was indeed using it. Occasionally boys do listen! He has been using the Cleansing Gel and reports  that his face is clear and “feels cleaner”.

C-Esta Cleansing Gel has a nice citrus scent, lathers up well and is great for oilier skin types or those with acne-prone skin. The Gel doesn’t irritate sensitive skin or strip your skin, like a lot of products for oily skin do. It’s great for super hot Southern California summer weather, when skin tends to be more greasy. Price: 6 fl oz. / $29.00

jan-marini-bioglycolic-body-scrubAnother skincare obsession of mine is exfoliating products, but not just for the face! If you use self tanners, you know that you need to properly exfoliate in order to get a nice, even tan. Jan Marini Bioglycolic Resurfacing Body Scrub combines glycolic acid and polished granules to provide overall smoothness to the skin, which increases with continued use.

The Resurfacing Body Scrub is great for everyday maintenance and exfoliation, and it smells bright and citrusy. I keep a bottle of this in the shower too. I apply the scrub on my body and leave it on for a couple of minutes before scrubbing it off. My skin feels smoother and softer after use. I was getting weird little bumps on the back of my arms no matter what kind of lotion I used, and now they’re miraculously gone!  Price: 12 fl oz. / $37.00
