Hey friends! I took quite a long break from blogging as I was on my family vacation (to the US); and though I had initially planned to blog actively during my vacation, things got quite hectic and didn’t work out the way I’d planned. So anyway, I’m back now and I’m very excited to share my review on the cult-favorite skincare products by Jordan Samuel Skin.
So where do I start? First yayyy! Finally, I got to try Jordan Samuel Skin products. Many of you might know that JSS products were on my wishlist for quite some time! I remember reading numerous promising reviews of JSS products by my trusted beauty experts. I was also intrigued to try JSS skincare products because I hadn’t come across even one single review that mentioned, “Nope, this product doesn’t work for me.” In fact, I would read people mentioning JSS products as their HG and proudly being on their third or fourth bottle of the serum/toner/cleanser. At that point, my curiosity had reached its peak. So I jumped with joy when our vacation to the US was in the works.
So after using JSS products for over a month, I’m ready to give my two cents.
Let’s begin with a little info about Jordan Samuel Skin. Jordan is a ballet dancer turned esthetician who graduated from the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute. He worked as a leading esthetician at Ummelina International Day Spa in downtown Seattle, followed by training for the renowned Kate Somerville skincare line. In 2012, he opened his own skin clinic, where he developed his unique Signature Facial and a capsule skincare collection.
Now on to my review – The After Show Treatment Cleanser
The After Show Treatment cleanser was formerly known as Plié Treatment cleanser. This unique gel to oil formula is packed with olive, jojoba, and grape seed oils to remove every trace of makeup, while sugarcane, apple and willow bark extracts offer gentle exfoliation and hydration.
I have used this cleanser both in the morning as well as in the evening. What I particularly love about this cleanser is how gentle it feels on my skin, yet it can easily remove every bit of makeup without much effort. Plus it has a delightful faint fragrance that uplifts my mood. It doesn’t irritate my eyes at all and doesn’t strip or dry my skin; in fact, it feels quite nourishing and hydrating. When mixed with water, this cleanser turns milky and rinses off easily leaving a well-hydrated and a clean soft skin. Most of the days when I’m tired, this is my go-to cleanser. I also prefer it for traveling because then I don’t have to carry another product to remove my makeup.
Hydrate facial serum is one of the best serums I have used so far. It’s just incredible! Hydrate is an aloe-based serum with star ingredients like Hyaluronic acid, stabilized Vitamin C, hexapeptides, cucumber, tamarind, and passion-flower extracts to keep your skin hydrated and dewy all day long. Hydrate serum has a transparent gel sort of texture that sinks into my skin like magic leaving it so plump and smooth. I reach out for this serum almost every day.
But I have noticed it doesn’t layer well with some serums/makeup products; they tend to pill. I’m not much of a makeup person; so it doesn’t bother me much. The formulation is simple; the texture is absolutely wonderful and; it keeps my skin plump and hydrated all day long! I just love it!
Hydrate Mist is the liquid-y version of the Hydrate Facial serum. They form a perfect team together!
Hydrate Mist + Hydrate Facial Serum = Double Dose of Hydration + Plumper & Dewier Skin
Hydrate mist contains red seaweed along with the powerful hydration team (akin to the Hydrate serum) of hyaluronic acid, cucumber, tamarind, passion-flower and organic glycerin. When I use Hydrate mist with the Hydrate serum, my skin just drinks them up like they are some sort of skin tonic (which actually they’re) and then I just don’t feel the need to apply anything else. I have also used Hydrate mist to soothe my skin after a long walk in the sun and on my sunburns; it offers such a calming and a soothing effect to my skin.
The Jordan Samuel Skin trio couldn’t have arrived at a better time. When I reached US, my oily skin became dry due to the drastic climate change. I had itchy skin and dry patches on my cheeks and forehead; I was aghast. The dry patches were all gone just after one use with the awesome triad; it was unbelievable. Not just that, during our vacation, I remember how my husband’s skin condition had worsened too – the skin around his nose had peeled off and it just looked awkwardly red; he was flabbergasted! I immediately recommended him to use the Jordan Samuel Skin products – the After Show Treatment cleanser, Hydrate mist, and the serum. The next day his skin looked calm and much better; and within couple of days the redness and the dryness were all gone.
Yeah, so now I understand the hype around Jordan Samuel Skin products (because I love them too now)! My skin loves it and responds so well to these products and I don’t think I’ll ever be without them!
Oh and before I end this blog, the other thing worth mentioning and commending about Jordan Samuel Skin is that JSS products are directly shipped from Jordan to you with no middle-man (a direct-to-consumer brand), allowing the costs to stay pretty low. How amazing is that?
Jordan’s also got a fab YouTube Channel where he talks about his products and shares all his skincare knowledge. You should definitely check them out. (because they are simply awesome!)
