New! Pure Radiance SPF30 2 oz.
What it is:
It's an anti-aging treatment mineral full-spectrum SPF30 that gives your skin a radiant glow (not metallic at all; more of a youthful, freshly washed glow). It evens skin tone (it truly evens your skin tone beautifully) especially any redness you may have in your skin. It has a self-adjusting tint that offers light, natural looking coverage. If you have spots you want to cover, you'll need to use a concealer. This very hydrating, antioxidant rich formula contains plant derived stem cells and garden cress sprouts that protect against aging. It plumps wrinkles and will not settle into lines and wrinkles at all. Your skin looks so good, you won't need to wear makeup over it. Oh... and it prevents and fades age spots and sun damage to boot!
Who it's for:
It's for all skin types except very oily. Normal and dry skin types are going to love it, so are rosacea/sensitive and acne skin types. If you don't like the look of a youthful glow, it's not for you. I'm not talking shiny like a new penny here.... but 'youthful glow' is the best description of it. For someone with oily skin it may look more shiny than glowy.
How to use it:
I use 4 pumps and massage it really well into my skin. I avoid putting it on my lips and eyelids if I'm going to be wearing eyeshadow and lipstick. It does have an after feel (if you touch your face) which goes away. So, let it soak in before applying makeup over it (which I don't think you'll need to do). It isn't mask worthy, but I haven't found one that is.
How to remove it:
Pure Radiance SPF30 has incredible lasting power! By the end of the day, it's still looking great and not settling into lines and wrinkles. Two testers commented on it being difficult to remove. I haven't found that, but I double cleanse. So, if you don't double cleanse, this might be the time to start! I use Rinseable Cleansing Oil, then Elderberry Gentle Foaming Cleanser. I've also used my Microfiber Cleansing Cloth first by pressing it against my skin (using as hot as I can stand water, wrung out) and holding it there until it cools. Then gently wiping the SPF off with the microfiber cloth, and then finally using Elderberry Gentle Foaming Cleanser. This works great as well - but I'm not always in the mood to hand wash my microfiber. Following with Exfoliate or Cell Renewal Toner (both are alcohol free) is ideal.

Garden Cress Sprout Extract helps to prevent skin from aging by inhibiting melanin production, which helps even skin tone and prevent age spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. This purified extract of garden cress sprouts activates the skin’s own detoxification system and promotes cell turnover. It’s a natural way to protect cells against environmental stressors. Cress contains great skin benefiting phytonutrients but of particular interest are isothiocyanates, as they have the ability to detoxify environmental pollutants and to neutralize free radicals in the skin. Garden Cress Sprout Extract is also proven to increase skin firmness and smoothness.
Grape Fruit Stem Cell Extract: Grape seeds are known to contain anti-inflammatory properties, prevent skin aging, scavenge oxygen free radicals and inhibit UV radiation-induced activity. Grape fruit stem cells are embryonic in nature, they are a catalyst in helping aged, sun-damaged skin to heal itself. They are able to protect, maintain, and regenerate (promote the creation of) epidermal adult stem cells. Grape skins and grape seeds contain what is called phenolic compounds such as anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, and antioxidants. Anthocyanins act as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Proanthocyanidins stabilize collagen, maintain elastin, reduce swelling, and also act as an antioxidant. Collagen and elastin form a fibrous matrix in the skin that provides support to the skin's structures. Damage to the fibrous matrix from exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays can result in wrinkles, creases, crepiness, and sagging. Grape fruit stem cell extract is important because it is a natural botanical substance, and it has been proven to protect and heal skin exposed to ultraviolet light and its damaging rays.
Knotgrass Extract (Perilla Frutescens) is a member of the mint family and is native to Eastern Asia. This extract is a great source of omega-3 essential fatty acids It can regulate the skin's oil production, improve balanced hydration, subdue breakouts and minimize signs of aging. Omega-3s can also help soften rough, dry skin and have a soothing effect on irritation and dermatitis. It has exceptional antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities due to the abundance of linoleic acid. This makes it a great choice for problematic skin types. Excellent for treating aging skin, soothing, repairing and providing powerful antioxidant protection for mature and aging skin. Rich in flavones, it offers potent antioxidant activity thus helping to prevent free-radical-induced damage to the skin cells, which can result in premature aging. It also contains a compound which acts as a natural precursor for ceramides, which plays a role in maintaining the skin barrier to protect against water loss. The oil is naturally rich in polyphenols (particularly rosmarinic acid) and triterpenoids (particularly ursolic acid), natural molecules that demonstrate anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antioxidant and anti-allergic qualities. This oil is a fine non-greasy ‘dry’ oil which is easily absorbed into the skin.
Squalane is a highly effective emollient that locks moisture into our skin. It’s also a natural antioxidant. The molecular structure of squalane closely resembles our own skin and can penetrate deeply without clogging pores and stabilizing highly sensitive skin. Using squalane in can reduce wrinkles, help to fade scars, reverse UV damage, lighten freckles and fade pigmentation, all while fighting free radicals. Squalane is vegan and great for all skin types, including acne prone.
