About two months ago I was set up to meet January Olds, founder of a skincare line I “had to try.” Within about two minutes I was instantly in love with her: a 30-something, drop dead gorgeous entrepreneur who is outspoken like you wouldn’t believe. It was a match made in Santa Monica heaven. We were introduced for social media purposes, but the only thing that has really come of that intention are some crazy instagram pics.
Anyway, since our meeting I have been using her January Labs facial products, a small but very powerful line. I haven’t written about them until now because I wanted to give myself ample time to explain to you WHY I LOVE THEM so much: they actually deliver the results they claim to give your skin! My two favorites are these:
This little tub of goo packs a big punch. January, a licensed esthetician for over 12 years, designed this mask to exfoliate your pores without removing your skin. How does that happen? Heat! The cinnamon-base generates a little bit of heat to stimulate blood flow that engages your pores to purge the dirt and delivers oxygen to deprived cells. She used the same stuff that pill capsules are made out of to ensure that the mask doesn’t actually penetrate your skin. This way you can use it up to three times a week without destroying the surface of your face. It’s brilliant! You get the glow from a glycolic peel without the reddness and recovery time.
I feel the effect from this cream when I don’t wear makeup. After I cleanse and spritz on toner, this silk smooth little lotion makes my skin feel likes a baby’s butt…ALL DAY LONG! Be mindful when you use it, you only need half a pump to cover your face and neck.
Both of these products will enhance your existing routine. If you’re looking to make a switch, try her travel pack for $20 so you can sample the three daily essentials in the line.
You know what they say: The proof is in the pudding. January’s skin is FLAWLESS! Here she is, no makeup, making me eggs :)
