Jan Marini Skin Research

March 1, 2011 Reviewed by admin 0 Comments
Since Jan Marini established Jan Marini Skin Research in 1994, she has been at the vanguard of medical-grade skin care and aesthetic products. In 2005, Jan revolutionized eyelash enhancement with the introduction of Age Intervention Eyelash Conditioner, only to see her miracle product pulled from shelves by the FDA because of the controversial glaucoma drug it contained. Recently, 64-year-old Cher revealed JMSR products as the secret to maintaining her remarkably drum-tight face.

The Good

JMSR works at the cutting edge of technology, and produces powerful, if-lightly tested, products that perform their respective cosmetic duties extremely well. Despite the FDA eventually recalling Age Intervention Eyelash Conditioner, Marta was initially blown away by its efficacy. Jan displayed good moxie and proved her competency in the wake of the recall. She quickly came out with prostaglandin-free Marini Lash, which Marta found works, though not to the same spectacular degree as the original. Jan was a pioneer in the use of Glycolic Acid as an exfoliant and topically applied Vitamin C. Other beneficial ingredients included in her products: green tea extracts, rooibos and pomegranate, and grape-derived antioxidant resveratrol.

The Bad

Age Intervention Eyelash Conditioner contained prostaglandin, a controversial glaucoma drug with a hefty list of side effects. Because JMSR is on the cusp of the most advanced skin and eyelash treatments, and because she has a habit of rushing products to market before extensive testing, one might be wise to avoid rushing out to buy her latest breakthrough treatment.

The Truth

Jan Marini Skin Research is truly pressing the boundaries of skin care and aesthetic products. Marta recommended Jan’s Age Intervention Regeneration Facial Mask, and found that the Age Intervention Eyelash Conditioner had a Miracle Grow-like effect. But it seems there’s no such thing as a miracle in eyelash growth, unless however, you consider potentially damaging side effects like blurred vision, change of eye color, and discomfort part of the miracle. Regardless, Jan Marini’s products do work and as evidenced by Cher’s endorsement and a handful of appearances on Extra!, Jan has taken her setbacks in stride and continues to develop popular, revolutionary products. Like many innovators, it might be best to try her products after they’ve been on the market for a while, tested and FDA approved. As an analogy, the Wright Brothers produced the first manned flight, but based on the untested, unrefined, and unsafe nature of their early aircraft, it wouldn't have been wise to be one of the first to go for a spin.
