Enjoy January in July

January Labs based in Laguna Beach is a new luxury skin-care line, founded by January Olds, who has worked more than a decade in the skin-care industry including eight years with Epicuren Discovery, leading education and product development.

With January Labs, her own baby, she's developed a line that is effective, gentle (no sulfates, parabens or fragrances that can be irritating) and yet easy to use.

Her mantra is that skin care should be simple, and too many products can be confusing and aren't necessarily better.

She's recently landed two exciting accounts with renowned esthetician Dangene at the Core Club in New York, and Glow and Go will also be featured as a "hero" product at the new Fred Segal/NewBeauty store in Santa Monica. Glow and Go is a professional-grade, at-home, anti-aging system for all skin types.

January Labs is now available at a dozen boutiques from L.A. to New York.

I recently tested out her line of skin care, including the Skin Essentials collection of four products, which includes a pure and gentle cleanser (designed to lighten and brighten the skin with willow bark and anti-oxidants), moisture balancing lotion (a light moisturizer with organic oils), a restorative tonic mist and Glow and Go exfoliant, a fave product for its "wow." It felt like I'd just had a sensational facial.

Her products also come in small travel sizes, perfect for on-the-go men and women. January Labs will make your skin feel and look restorative and hydrated. It's available online at January Labs is at 668 N. Coast Hwy., Suite 1193 in Laguna Beach. For more information, call (949) 207-3404.
