Greetings Beautiful! I wanted to start the year off right and share some gorgeous new products that I am loving and that are making my skin absolutely radiant, so I figured that I would let you in on my little secret. Perhaps you’ve heard of Jan Marini, skincare icon and the pioneer of medically validated skin care preparations? Well, if not I am delighted to introduce you to this fabulous line full of active products that really work and transform your skin. At the beginning of the Fall/Winter season, Jan Marini kindly sent me two amazing anti-aging skincare products to try and I have totally fallen in love with them! Today, I am excited to tell you all about them and give FOUR of them away!

Limited Edition Jan Marini Holiday Exfoliator 

OK, admittedly my timing is a little off season with this product review, but this product is so yummy and transformative, that I will continue to use it throughout the year. The Marini Holiday Exfoliator is a clinical-strength resurfacer that immediately refines your skin’s texture and follicle size and gives your face a gorgeous radiant, polished glow. This innovative product contains antioxidants, unique spherical dissolving beads (non-abrasive), papaya enzymes, and glycolic acid, all designed to gently and safely scrub and resurface your skin.

What do I love about this product? I absolutely adore the almost edible sweet and spicy gingerbread scent. I love how it thoroughly and effectively smooths and softens my skin and how refreshed it looks after I use it. This is one of those scrubs that you can feel working and your skin looks noticeably different immediately afterwards. And did I mention, it smells like a slice of the holidays?! Deelish! However, this is a Limited Edition product and when it’s gone, it’s gone! But lucky you, I am giving TWO away and you can also buy it HERE.

Jan Marini Age Intervention Retinol PLUS

This isn’t your ordinary retinol product, it’s a ground breaking new concept in retinol technology. Retinol PLUS delivers the most aggressive levels of stabilized retinol combined with advanced topical agents to maximize efficacy while simultaneously decreasing irritation, sensitivity, dryness and redness-all very common side effects with retinol usage. And not only is it formulated with a potent and well tolerated retinol formulation, but it also contains anti-aging and collagen boosting peptides, antioxidants, hydrators and skin soothing ingredients that deliver unparalleled skin rejuvenation benefits.

What do I love about this product? The results are totally noticeable and amazing! I have noticed a nice softening of my fine lines and wrinkles, a much softer and smoother skin texture, radiance and luminosity and an overall vibrancy to my skin. Since I have been using it, people continually comment on how gorgeous my skin looks, and I credit Retinol Plus for that. And I am truly impressed with the lack of sensitivity and irritation that I have not gotten with this product. Typically, when I use retinol, my skin gets a little red and irritated (but the results are worth it), but that didn’t happen at all with this product. Love that! Oh yeah, and the reasonable price of $65 for a potent anti-aging product is very appealing too (not peeling :-))

But perhaps the best news of all, is that I am giving away TWO Jan Marini Holiday Exfoliators & TWO Retinol PLUS products to 4 lucky readers!

    I’d love to try the Retinol treatment. The scrub sounds nice except for the description of the smell. I don’t care much for gingerbread so it would be hard for me to use it. Thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway!

  58. Girl, you had me at the mention of “gingerbread”, I adored how retinol helps our skin but also get irritation from it, how clever you are to find a product thst gives immediate results without the redness!

  59. Joni Owada says:

    I havent come across any, but if by chance I win this one, perhaps it will be my new find.

    I use coconut oil on my skin and that seems to work, but I dont know about it being antiaging…I did read that it was supposed to help with age spots, but I as of yet dont have any to try it out on…

  60. jan marini daily face protectant SPF 30 is the BEST!!!!!!!! I have used it with moisturizer and serum when i am really dry- alone on the beach- under makeup. totally rocks!!!!!!

  61. @dreamofmcqueen says:

    I don’t see the “DO IT” button, only a way to share on FB. Is there a way to enter without having a FB profile?
    Many thanks!
