St. Jane Petal Moisturizing Cream – $68.00
“A powerful, lightweight moisturizer is something I’ve been personally missing out on from my skincare routine, and the light bulb has just gone on. I immediately started working on the formula, which was inspired by the subtle way florals preserve their beauty through hydration” — Casey Georgeson, founder of Saint Jane
The first time I applied the moisturizer, it felt light, almost like a serum, and it absorbed fairly quickly, leaving behind a finish that left my skin feeling soft, plump and hydrated all day long. If I had to compare, I’d say it looks a lot like Tatcha Water Cream Moisturizing, but lighter and more airy. The next day, I applied Petal Cream under a layer of skin tone, concealer, and setting powder, just to see what would happen when moisturizer meets my other products. consequences? Aside from the lack of pilling (hooray!), I found that Petal Cream had a boosting effect, leaving my skin looking clearer and brighter, with a natural glow meaning I didn’t have to use any highlighter that day.
When talking about the formula with Saint Jane’s founder, Casey Georgeson, she told Well + Good that she was really inspired by the flowers: “Hydration is as essential for the flower as it is for our skin, so I wanted floral mimicry and hydration working together.” She also explains that balance is key, saying, “Too much hydration and the flower droops, too little and leads to dehydration – so it’s about that intrinsic balance that florals and hydration have. Achieving that perfect balance between moisture and feathery texture in a cream has become the Holy Grail for me.” . Jorgson adds that it took over a year to find this great spot and get the formula just right.
As someone with combination skin who lives in one of Los Angeles’ Dry Valleys, I’m very picky with moisturizers. It’s hard to find a formula that’s light enough, but it delivers hydration without feeling too heavy. Saint Jane has the perfect texture and efficacy with its formula, which contains 1% pure hyaluronic acid (this helps maintain skin hydration and elasticity), vitamin C (a skin brightener and collagen product), and 10 flower extracts with soothing properties (including hibiscus tea peptides). , pink lotus, mimosa, honeysuckle, and rosemary, with frangipani as a light fragrance).
The cream also includes 500mg of THC-free CBD (total amount in the bottle, not per application). Studies have shown That cannabidiol (also known as CBD) can help with inflammation, such as blemishes and acne.
And if you prefer a simple skincare routine, you’ll be happy to know that you can use SJ’s Petal Cream as a day and night cream. While the brand recommends pairing it with their own beauty serum, I’ll be honest with you: I generally use it solo—which is what the founder herself expected. “The formula is dense with floral nutrients and hydration boosters like 1 percent pure hyaluronic acid, so if you only use Petal Cream in your routine, your skin will be hydrated and nourished—all day and all night,” says Jorgson.
Even with the air conditioner on full mode, I still wake up with soft skin looking fresher and more vibrant. This is kind of good morning.
