Continuing with the Xmas gift ideas, today I've got an absolute winner from Jane Iredale, which is available from the online store RY - The Starter Kit, which contain a selection of the perfect products to get you hooked to Jane Iredale. I am already hooked on Jane Iredale, so if you've missed my reviews, you can find them via my product directory.

Anyway, this Jane Iredale Starter Kit really is the perfect way of getting to know the brand, and it would be the perfect Xmas gift idea too.

If you're not familiar with Jane Iredale, the brand makes mineral makeup, which are multi-functional and which have skincare benefits all while they look good.

The kit comes in a couple of different skin tones, including light and medium (which I've tested), and it contains:

  • Smooth Affair, 7ml
  • Golden Glow PurePressed Base SPF20, 2.8g
  • Golden Glow Amazing Base SPF20, 1.7g
  • Pommisst, 15ml
  • Mini Powder Brush
  • Travel sized cosmetic case with an large mirror

The Smooth Affair is a primer and skin brightener, which has anti-ageing properties that increase luminosity, even skin tone, and minimise the appearance of pores. It contains a whole host of natural ingredients including apple and grapefruit extract to maintain the skin's elasticity and promote luminosity and radiance, aloe leaf juice to soothe and calm the skin, green and white tea leaf Extracts, Royal Jelly and algae extract, for their anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory benefits, olive Leaf Extract to promote epidermal cell renewal, and honeysuckle extract to help purify the skin.

The Smooth Affair is used after your usual moisturiser, and it just takes a tiny amount to cover your whole face, so even this tiny tube will last you a while. It has a beautiful scent and absorbs quickly into the skin, and afterwards makeup seems to glide onto the skin even easier. I also find that it takes less foundation to make my skin look even, which in itself results in a more natural and nicer look too. On my combination skin, my makeup also lasts longer without the need for touch ups. I love how this primer makes my skin feel and look, and I love that it is not only more natural but also cares for the skin while I wear it, so I will definitely be purchasing a full sized when I run out.

Then I follow with the Amazing Base SPF20. I actually already own a full sized one of these, which I'm using in the refillable Jane Iredale brush, and I'm loving it, and have already got a backup - and I generally use it as a finishing powder for a little extra coverage where needed, and actually usually have the refillable brush with me when I'm out as its perfect for touch ups to ! This is a powder foundation made from micronised minerals, and it is a bit of a multi-tasker as it can be used both wet and dry as a concealer, foundation, powder and sunscreen all in one, and because it contains algae extract, it also helps reduce inflammation, soothe sensitive skin, and rebuild the skin's lipid film barrier. The powder goes on fine, but can easily be build up, and cover blemishes, redness and pigmentation, and it gives a nice radiant healthy look.

Alternatively there's the PurePressed Base SPF20, which offers a more sheer, as well as a semi-matte look, so in some ways this pressed powder is fantastic for combination or oilier skin types. Like Amazing Base, it is also made from micronized minerals and contains algae extract, as well as pine bark and pomegranate extract, which soothes sensitive skin and helps prevent moisture loss. The power is extremely light, almost weightless on the skin, and again, it can be built up for more coverage. But personally I prefer to use it as a finishing powder as it gives such a nice velvety matte finish.

To finish off, there's the Pommisst, - and again I already got a full sized bottle of these which I am also so in love with. This fruity scented spray is a hydration spay that has added pomegranate extract, which gives the skin a dose of anti-ageing botanicals and antioxidants to protect the skin from UV rays. This spay helps set you foundation and give it a dewy look, and can of course also be used throughout the day to freshen up the skin or add a boost of moisture.

The kit also comes with a Mini Powder Brush which is made from hand-tied goat hair, and is so incredibly soft. It is perfect for applying both the amazing base and of course also the Pure Pressed base as well.

And everything comes packaged in a gorgeous silver cosmetic case with a large mirror.

This truly is a great starter set, and is such a good way of trying out some products, which are all incredible, and you're sure to fall in love with immediately.
