04 November, 2015 What’s New: Janjira Marine Radiant White*
Over the last two weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of trying out a new range from Janjira, a Thai skincare brand that is making serious waves in the luxe skincare market. Combining ancient beauty rituals with a fresh approach to keeping skin youthful and healthy, Janjira offer targeted solutions that are proven to make a visible difference to the look and feel of your skin. They sent over their new Marine Radiant White range, a curated collection of products that claim to target dark spots, reduce and prevent discolouration, and deeply exfoliate. I believe this range is targeted at women who want to lighten their skin, as the key ingredient which is featured in every product (Algowhite™) inhibits the skin’s ability to produce melanin. Whilst I’m definitely not interested in becoming any paler, I am keen to brighten my complexion and reduce some discolouration on my cheeks, so I was definitely excited to try the range out.
Overall, I enjoyed using the three products I received. Although I had a few minor issues, generally I was happy – and I’m really pleased to discover a brand that unashamedly embraces the spa-like elements of skincare, as I truly believe that looking after your complexion should be fun and luxurious. Keep scrolling to find out my thoughts on Janjira’s new releases!
The first product I tried was the Janjira Marine Radiant White Brightening Cleanser* (£22 here). Janjira market this cleanser as a ‘one-stop shop’: it removes makeup, exfoliates with the help of Vitamin C, and brightens and nourishes with the help of Vitamin B3 and Algowhite™. I didn’t get on too well with this cleanser, as although it didn’t foam, it left my skin feeling quite dry and tight. It did a good job of removing heavy eye makeup, and it left my skin feeling squeaky clean – I prefer to feel nourished and refreshed rather than cleansed within an inch of my life, but some people enjoy that sensation.
The next offering from Janjira that I tried is definitely a new favourite, and it’s the Marine Radiant White Brightening Toner* (£20 here). This lightweight, nourishing and soothing toner comes in a top-pump form, meaning you have to press down on the lid with a cotton round to distribute the product. It’s oil and alcohol-free, and contains a whole host of nourishing ingredients, including Sodium Hyaluronate (a form of Hyaluronic Acid). It’s a dream to apply, and great for whacking on after using an exfoliating or purifying face mask, for an immediate and long-lasting moisture boost. This is definitely a new favourite, and one that I’ll be keeping in my skincare stash for a long time!
Last up is the Janjira Marine Radiant White Illuminating Day Cream* (£24 here). Hydrating without feeling heavy, this immediately brings a subtle glow to bare skin, whilst providing both UVA and UVB protection – two key factors that can cause an enhance dark spots and pigmentation. Dry skin types would love this moisturiser, as it sits beautifully on the skin, and would be a great base under makeup. For me, it works better as a moisture booster on my cheeks and around my eyes, especially if I’m rocking a heavy matte foundation that day.
So that’s the Janjira Marine Radiant White range – pretty, easy-to-use, and relatively affordable for a luxury skincare brand. I’ve enjoyed trialling these products, and will continue to use the toner everyday. The cleanser might be a little more appropriate in the summer time, and the moisturiser and toner are both great all-year round.
