A picture of June Jacobs product

The June Jacobs Spa Collection is committed to producing the highest quality, luxury spa products, using the highest quality, natural ingredients. A natural botanical skincare line, June Jacobs Spa Collection formula's do not include parabens, preservatives, synthetic dyes, or sulphates and are mostly petrochemical and fragrance-free when possible.

Thanks to Sephora, Australia now has access to hundreds of overseas brands that were not accessible to us unless we travelled abroad. Having more varied choices in beauty products can sometimes feel intimidating as it can be hard to know what is suitable for our skin, this is why Sephora provide not only well knowledged staff but sample pots of almost everything they sell for you to take home and try and 9 times out of 10 you will be back to purchase what you sampled.

One of June Jacobs products I will be talking about is the Pore Purifying Facial Bath.

It is an effective, paraben and preservative free purifying cleanser with deep pore cleansing action and is formulated with natural antiseptic, tea tree oil to rid the skin of surface impurities absorbing oil and sloughing off dead skin cells. Natural anti-inflammatories, willow bark and pine bark extract will calm skin while nutrient rich algae extract acts as a humectant, retaining the moisture level of the skin. 

Powerful patent pending anti-oxidant blend of white, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry, pomegranate and grape seed extracts help to neutralise free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat the visible signs of premature ageing, leaving the skin clean, radiant and revitalised.

I wanted to point out the key Ingredients in this product as it contains quite a number of amazing ingredients.

Pine Bark Extract is derived from the tree found mainly in North America.  Pine Bark extract contains anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, which help in the prevention of ultraviolet (UV)-induced damage of the skin.

Willow Bark Extract is derived from the tree indigenous to Europe.  This oil contains many compounds such as catechins, tannins, flavonoids and the glycoside, salicin which helps to inhibit the production of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

Witch Hazel Extract is derived from the shrub found in Canada which have anti-inflammatory properties and tannins, which have astringent properties to tighten skin tissue, remove excess oil and revive dull skin.

Tea Tree Oil is derived from the leaves of the Australian melaleuca tree.  It contains terpenoids, which have anti-bacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties beneficial for problematic skin.

Lavender Extract is derived from the plant indigenous to the Mediterranean, containing natural alcohol, linalool, which provides lavender’s antiseptic properties by killing bacteria, reducing inflammation and aiding in the skin’s healing process.

Turmeric Root Extract is derived from the underground stem of the plant found in Asia and India.  It contains the polyphenol, curcumin which has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.

Carrageenan and Algae Extract consists of many polysaccharides sugars such as Alginates, which are responsible for moisture retention and fucoidanes, which encourage circulation, playing a key role in the elasticity of the skin.

Combining all of these ingredients gives you a potent exilir of vitamins infused into the skin giving you the ultimate results for flawless skin.

Lavender is the dominate scent when you open the Pore purifying facial bath cleanser.  It's lightly scented which is really pleasant when cleansing the skin.  The consistency is quite thick, when water is added it turns into a creamy lather. 

You only need a small amount for the whole face. Gently massage onto skin with a circular motion. Rinse skin thoroughly with water and pat dry. Skin is left feeling soft and supple.

There is no skin tightness or dryness.  Skin feels cleansed and cool. After applying skincare and make-up my skin still feels refreshed.  It is however, hard to squeeze the product out of the bottle.  At times it becomes challenging that I unscrew the top to get the product out.

June Jacobs Spa Collection is exclusively available at Sephora Australia. The Pore Purifying Facial Bath RRP $58 for 200ml.
