WWD Beauty Biz reports that Mally Roncal's obsession with staying bacteria-free, after having twins, directly influenced her launch of additional makeup brushes. In the current issue, Mally shared five tips for keeping your makeup bacteria-free:
"1. Wash your hands with antibacterial wash. For my clients I use an antibac that smells like lavendar called Jao Hand Refresher. I put it on my hands and rub them together, then let it dry and put it over their faces. Not only do you kill germs, but you can enjoy a moment of peace."
My name is Jen and I bought some facial moisturizer from you a few weeks ago at the Spa and Resort show. Just wanted to say thanks for introducing me to this wonderful product. My skin looks and feels incredible ever since I have been using this. And the smell is like a little trip to the spa every time I open the jar - I love it! I will definitely be using this product for years to come (and trying your other products as well).

"Among Jao Hand Refresher's legion of uses, I've heard that it will zap zits, bust germs at the gym, cool off the under-arm area, and provide an aromatherapy pick-me-up. Its formula is even safe for the sensitive skin on the face, where it has reportedly been used as an after-shave and an astringent. The name is clearly misleading - this "hand refresher" works wonders on the whole body.
Though the initial squirt smells strongly of alcohol, the gel then seems to transform into an herbal potion, leaving a lovely lavender aroma as it dissolves on the skin. Unlike every other commercial antibacterial product I've used, this one didn't make me want to rub my hands on a towel to get rid of a yucky, wet residue or an overpowering, sickly scent. Ethyl alcohol tends to be less drying, but I nonetheless felt an urge to moisturize my hands soon after "refreshing" them."

"If you had to pick which useful product to have on hand on a deserted island, this would probably be the one. They call it “your portable sink” and recommend it be used for diaper-changing, aromatherapy boost, zit zapping, hand softening, facial astringent, after shave… Okay, there was more; but when I saw “after shave,” I thought, “Hmmm…I’m going to test that.” So, I decide to do a bikini shave to really put it to the test. Even got a little scrape in the process (owie!). Jao took care of the scrape and there was no irritation that often or usually happens from shaving this area. That was a first. As you-know-who would say, “It’s a good thing.”
got it at Alcone) & I said I had to get some.
Well Monday night I was doing the Quill Awards @ Lincoln Center &
this lady Jane had put some on her hands & I LOVED the smell & asked
what it was. Jao again. She said she got hers @ Alcone as well. I
read the back & called the number. There was a Whole Foods in the
basement & I just knew they had to have it & sure enough Wendy
answered the phone & looked it up & THEY HAD IT!!!!!! Bought 3 bottles.
I'm a make-up artist & will be using this everyday.
