I had never even heard of a ‘SKINCARE 5 A DAY’ and now I find myself changing and thinking more about my routine as a result. Why? Because this Jane Scrivner Skin Theory makes complete sense.
JANE SCRIVNER SKIN ELIXIR
Let’s start at the beginning. I was introduced to this brand a while back by Alison Young (the woman is the fount of all beauty knowledge and a true expert in every sense of the word when it comes to beauty). I had only recently delved in to the world of facial oils and hadn’t been entirely convinced when I started using the Skin Elixir Balance Nourish Facial Oil.
JANE SCRIVNER SKIN ELIXIR ELEVATOR PITCH
If I had to deliver an elevator pitch on this product, it would sound like this:
From the gorgeous packaging to the soft and smooth texture, this product delivers an experience across every touchpoint as well as a sensory overload as soon as the incredible smell of the Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Sweet Orange essential oils permeate the air around you! It would be a sin not to indulge yourself and take a deep breathe in before applying to your skin.
After such a positive first experience with a brand I had never used before, I did a little more research which led me to the SKINCARE 5 A DAY. Think about how healthy eating starts with a balanced and varied diet which consists of your 5 a day. If we apply the same formula to our skincare, we need to change the thinking around our skincare.
The products we include in our routines are often chosen to solve our skin problems. Surely the aim should be to focus on creating and growing healthy skin so that there are no problems. Which made me ask myself if my current skincare regime is ‘feeding’ my skin the 5 A DAY it needs to be healthy or are the products in my beauty bag just fire fighting the symptoms of unhealthy skin?
What I love about this oil is you only need one pump for your whole face, so a little goes a long way! It smells incredible too! If you’ve tried it, I would love to hear what you thought.
