It’s Fabulous Friday! Where Desertdoll brings you dream items worth the splurge…

I just love a good facial. The plush robes, the warming mitts, the steaming, the layer after layer of lux products. I even like the extractions. I can’t think of anything else that pampers you more and shows such immediate results. Plus, how often do get an hour with someone who has infinite knowledge about skincare? Take full advantage of that one on one time to ask questions.

There’s one line that I see in more spas than any other- June Jacobs. As a matter of fact, the last 2 facials I received were at spas that featured June Jacobs in most of their treatments. But I’ve been noticing it for years. Names with fresh ingredients in them; Cranberry, Papaya and Citrus, along with products that have a more scientific edge, like Age Defying Copper Complex and Brightening Serum with Retinol.

The June Jacobs line, close to 70 products strong at this point, has been around since 1999. In earlier years, June worked in a prominent NYC plastic surgeon’s office. She learned so much about skin that she decided to pursue a career in the skincare industry, developing not only her own line, but also co-founding Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skincare.

I think they sum up their remarkable, comforting line best: “Based on high concentrations of carefully selected botanical and plant extracts, recognized for their soothing and restorative powers, the June Jacobs Spa Collection marries age defying science and luxury. June’s belief in both paraben and preservative free treatments combined with hydrosol technology, which distills active ingredients to its purest form, delivers unparalleled results”.

We received an item I have been longing to try for years, one of their star products, the Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque. Masques are one of the easiest ways to get a spa-quality treatment at home. And this one is one of the best on the market. It’s got slight tingle to it, which I really like in a product. Plus, it smells fabulous! Pumpkin acts nature’s own gentle exfoliant, so it’s gentle yet super effective. And best of all, it’s suitable for all skin types. Here’s what they say “This deliciously spicy, skin purifying pumpkin enzyme masque is a gentle enzyme “peel” designed for home use. Gently digests and exfoliates dead skin cells and impurities as it delivers pumpkin’s botanical repair benefits into the skin. Leaves the skin cleansed, detoxified and silky smooth. Age-fighting anti-oxidants and vitamin A protect and silken the skin. Roughness retreats and dryness disappears.”

I happen to love pumpkin, but perhaps smelling like a pie is not your thing? No problem, we also got to try the Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque . Very similar to the Pumpkin-gentle, natural exfoliating enzymes-except this is a mix of Papaya, Mango and Pineapple. This masque is also a creamier base to the gel base of the Pumpkin and is therefore a bit more moisturizing, yet still suitable for all skin types. I’d really say it’s a scent preference as to which you chose, because they both gave great results and left my skin feeling soft and looking gorgeous!

So, if June Jacobs had you postponing that facial, let us know!
