June Jacobs Spa Collection – Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque & Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque

Yesterday all of the June Jacobs Spa Collection arrived. It’s so exciting! I feel like a kid in a candy store. I don’t even know what to try first or what to share with you first. There’s just so much to talk about. Over the next several weeks, I’ll be using Junes’ products, my estheticians are all trained on them and we’ll be experiencing our clients’ reaction, too. Where to start? Last night I treated myself to a double peeling mask. That’s sort of like going to the gym and taking a 40 minute run on the treadmill, followed up by a great yoga class. Meaning that both forms of exercise are really good for you, but that they do different things for you body. Or, in this case these two masks do different things for your facial skin.

An occasional facial peel is a great way to loosen dead skin cells.  A good peeling mask will improve the texture of the skin while restoring elasticity. A good peeling mask will also relieve congestion, reduce pore size, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone and stimulate collage production.

pumpkinLet’s look at the two peels. First I did the June Jacobs Pumpkin Enzyme Peeling Masque. This is a great mask for sensitive skins or skin prone to acne. It’s not as intrusive as glycolic can be on some skins. This pumpkin peel mask has the richest source of beta carotene and also contains a full complement of Vitamin A derivatives. The antioxidants from pumpkin are amazing. They do so much good for your skin. They provide cellular rejuvenation through enzymatic exfoliation, strengthen cellular responses, and acts as a humectant to increase skin hydration. It is the perfect remedy for blackheads or dull, congested skin.

But, honestly I was so eager to try June’s masques that I thought I’d treat myself to the Papaya masque too. The Papaya Peeling Enzyme Masque offers extensive benefits. This peel is loaded up with fruit extracts, which are just another way at getting at and removing the surface dead skin cells. Papaya is really effective at smoothing out wrinkles. And it is chock full of Vitamin A, which accelerates the formation of new skin cells, and lots of Vitamin C. And you know by now how great Vitamin C is for you skin and how much you need your fill of C. Papaya’s fruit extracts are so gentle to your skin that it’s hard to believe that it’s actually doing anything. There is no stinging or peeling and it smells so good. 

Both of her masques smell amazing. June has used all fresh, all natural ingredients and wow! After you wash off this mask, you skin will be like silk – mine was. And, it is today. Now I probably won’t do another back to back of the June Jacobs Pumpkin and Papaya Masques. Time is always an issue for me. But I will keep both of them and alternate their application. It’s hard to describe how each masque offered different benefits to my skin, but they did. Again, it’s sort of like being back at the gym. What’s better for you: a jog, an aerobics class, lifting weights, palettes, yoga….? They’re all good for you…. differently. That’s the best analogy I can give you.

One masque is better than none, but two or more types are even better.
