själ Skincare

sjal is one of the skincare lines that I have been wanting to check out for awhile.   The line was founded by a former fashion stylist Kristen Petrovich  and her mother, Karen.

Detailing the science behind the line would be too lengthy here, but the short version is that sjal is a holistically based line that uses over 160 exclusive rare , active  natural ingredients.  Used are precious  gemstones as well as gold, silver and platinum.  All ingredients are pharmaceutical grade and all products are free of fillers like caffeine or silcones.

The mother -daughter duo wanted to combine parts of Ayurvedic , Tibetan , Homeoptahic and Chinese medicines.

So  now let's talk products.  I've tried just a couple but   have been very impressed. My favorite is the Serum 1- Liquid Vitamin Lift.

I  try and use a lot of  different skincare , so  in the morning I noticed that my skin looked good, better than usual . And then I remembered that I had used the Serum 1 the night before . It was the first time I had tried it.  Results within 1 use ? That's pretty great. My skin had been brightened and seemed more even. I only have  a small sample packet of this and I have to say buying a full bottle is tempting . Unfortunately  this line does have a very high price tag  , which is the one , possibly only, drawback.

Serum 1 is loaded with peptides, fig, pomegranate and iris botanicals, minerals including zinc and copper, Vitamins B12, K and C, Hyaluronic Acid and Apricot Kernal Oil  .( partial list. )

 I also tried the Orbe  Eye Contour Creme. This is rich but not greasy preparation that  does all the things you want in an eye cream. It hydrates and soothes. With use, sjal says it brightens , reduces puffinessm dark circles and lines. Licorice is in there for brightening , lipids for moisture and again lots of peptides and ceramides.

For more info on the full line and the story behind it,   you can go to www.sjalskincare.com
