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.
