GORGEOUS, GLOWING SKIN

BeautyPrep-Cleanser Jane Iredale

  • PREP YOUR FACE for a flawless makeup application. Designed to make your mineral makeup look better and last longer, Jane Iredale’s BeautyPrep™ cleanser, toner and moisturizer work together to hydrate and protect the skin for a perfectly smooth complexion.

  • EXFOLIATE for silky, soft legs and body. Made with 100 percent ultra-nourishing botanicals, this scrub gently buffs away dead skin cells and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Meanwhile, it’s infused with a hint of cardamom (a known aphrodisiac, FYI) — leaving you with soft, silky skin that smells as delicious as it looks.
