In the last year I have received an incredible number of emails requesting even more coverage of natural and organic skincare products, and many people have asked that I seek out some lesser known brands that deliver results at a more affordable price point. One of my more recent discoveries that satisfies this request is Jeffrey James Botanicals.

This healthy skincare line gently cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, leaving it with a healthy glow and vitality. If you are looking to ween yourself from your chemical-laden infused products, and  want to begin a natural skincare ritual, then this is definitely a line to consider. Furthermore, Jeffrey James Botanicals is a luxury organic skincare line that is not only affordable, but it can now be found at Target online.

About Jeffrey James Botanicals,

Founded by former football player Jeffrey James, his namesake brand was created with the belief that true beauty comes from within and guides everything we do. All products in the Jeffrey James Botanicals line are formulated with over 80% certified organic ingredients, using all-natural scents and showcased in beautiful Italian glass packaging. Focused on giving your skin the finest minerals, botanicals and more that it needs to create beauty from within, Jeffrey James Botanicals delivers a truly luxurious, organic experience in the comfort of your own home.
Jeffrey James Botanicals The Serum ($47.00 for 2 oz. from Jeffrey James Botanicals, Target Online and Walmart): This fast absorbing, lightweight, serum profoundly moisturizes and hydrates the skin leaving it soft, supple and lifted. The high concentration of Hyaluronic Acid effectively plumps fine lines and gives skin a glowing, youthful appearance.

According to Jeffrey Jacobs Botanicals,

Hyaluronic Acid makes up fifty percent of this high quality formulation. Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin, there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the world market today. Non-comedogenic, penetrates deeply, and activates collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, brighter and more radiant complexion.

Directions: Use 2-3 pumps of the serum and massage into the face, neck and eye area.

  1. Target can't be wooing me away from Barneys, can it?

    1. LOL!!!!!! Well, I don't know that Target could really woo you away from, but their inclusion of lines such as this one– certainly makes a strong case for expanding one's horizons beyond luxury retailers. I like to try and strike a healthy balance between the two, but to always remain open to the fact that there are many worthy, high quality products that can be found at affordable price points.
