  • Shop online with me, your
    Independent JAFRA Beauty Consultant:

    In the early 1980s, a friend introduced me to JAFRA products.  My skin was sensitive and I had trouble finding make-up I could use.  JAFRA was the answer and I've used it ever since because I love it!  I found that the eye shadow is long-lasting and doesn't crease; the eye and lip pencils go on easily and do not 'feather; the lipstick is smooth; the foundation is refreshing and not heavy.  If you've tried JAFRA before, please let me be your personal consultant. If you haven't tried it, let me introduce you to it and help you find the products that are sure to become your favorites.  -----Kimber Caito
