I’ve been a skincare addict for a while now, but I won’t try just any brand. I like to try brands that are backed by science and research, are cruelty free, and that truly work for me. I have combination skin with some redness around my nose and some signs of sun damage in the form of age spots. Lately, if you’ve seen me around, I have been makeup-free. This is because my redness and age spots are much improved and I feel confident in my skin thanks to Jan Marini Skin Research. I have a Bachelor’s of Science from Yale University in Molecular Biology, so I can actually understand and appreciate what goes into a good skincare product.
Jan Marini Skin Research (JMSR) is one of the world’s most esteemed professional skin care brands. JMSR has teamed up with some top physician and research scientists to develop ground breaking technology that not only addresses the world’s most common skin problems, but that revolutionizes the skincare industry. JMSR has introduced a multitude of technological firsts, has been awarded numerous patents and has published multiple independent peer-reviewed studies on its products.
Jan Marini Skin Research recently launched an exceptional patented formula that helps reduce the visible signs of aging while providing superb hydration to the skin – Transformation Face Cream. Even after the first use, your skin will appear immediately smoother with a silky softness! I am honored to have been chosen to try this out for free in exchange for my honest review.
First of all, let’s talk about the ingredients. This is packed with luxurious, patented growth factor, peptide and antioxidants that are the ultimate in advanced hydrators to reduce the appearance of aging and damaged skin. Key ingredients include: TGF Beta-1 (tissue growth factor that stimulates collagen and elastin), patented Thymosin Beta-4 (which also helps to reduce inflammation and helps skin rejuvenation), anti-aging peptides, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, aloe vera, and plant extracts! I love how the power of science and nature come together in this product to hydrate the skin.
It is good for normal, dry, acne prone or sensitive skin. I have combination skin, and it works great on my skin too. To use it, you want to apply a pea sized amount in the morning and evening over your entire face and neck (all the way around your neck, not just the front of it). On the bottle it says “step 4” which means it is also step 4 in their Skin Care Management System, where step 1 is Cleanse, step 2 is Rejuvenate, step 3 is Resurface, step 4 is Hydrate, and step 5 is Protect.
It’s no wonder this product won the ASCP Skin Deep Reader’s Choice Award in 2017. The first time I used it I actually noticed how a little goes a long way. It absorbed very easily into my skin and left it feeling silky soft, not greasy. It didn’t irritate my skin or have a weird smell. I could see this 1 oz jar lasting me at least a few months. I am excited to incorporate this into my daily routine, and so far, I am loving the results!
