Beauty for the Busy Mom

One company catering to the everyday woman and her skincare needs By Brittney Byrne  Photos Kimberlee Miller Have you ever grabbed that face cream off the clearance shelf at the grocery store, or rationed your sample tube until there were only drops remaining of the high­end product? The prices for quality skincare can put a major dent in a budget and on the flip side the bargain products can leave much to be desired for your skin. That’s where Olivia Kelly of Jasmine and Juice saw a need and decided to fill it. Olivia was born and raised in Idaho and, after getting her esthetician’s license in 2013, she noticed a lack of affordable, easy skincare for the busy everyday woman. She started searching for something to fill this void in the marketplace. Once she became pregnant with her daughter, the need increased due to her struggle with a common symptom of hormones, cystic acne. Olivia said, “did you know most acne skincare says it’s not safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding?” And from her need, arose her company Jasmine and Juice. The company is named for a childhood memory of her mother. Growing up, Olivia said her mother would get up every morning and put on her jasmine lotion. To this day, jasmine still brings back those memories and sparked the idea of the name of her company. She went on the hunt for skincare products that fit the Jasmine and Juice mission statement. She started by blogging and finding products that worked for her.  As it grew, it evolved into an ecommerce business and jasmineandjuice.com was born. Since launching in August, Jasmine and Juice has found more and more products to fit the need. Their number one seller currently is the Blue Nirvana Facial Oil. The oil is formulated with Ylang Ylang and is excellent for all skin types. It contains anti­microbial and anti­ inflammatory properties and is loved by oily, acne­prone and even rosacea­prone skin. It gives a glow to the skin and leave it looking healthy. It is 100% cruelty­free, organic, and vegan. Retailing for only $59, this is exactly what Jasmine and Juice is all about. Healthy, affordable, and easy. The oil is by a Korean skincare line KBeauty, but they also carry quite a few products made by small US based companies. What does the future hold for Jasmine and Juice? The sky is the limit for this up and coming company. In the next year, Olivia hopes to work with a manufacturer to formulate and produce her own line of skincare products. She wants to help every busy woman out there to take care of her skin. She hopes to also perfect a line of skincare for the pregnant and nursing mothers who are dealing with skin issues from hormonal acne to dryness. She wants to make something that is safe to use when in that delicate stage of life. The local company can be found online on their beautiful and clean­cut website and hopes to have a retail location in the future.
