Here is a review from one of my enthusiastic clients: 

I love the Stimulatine Jour! It does work believe it or not, especially for the reason I purchased it in the first place, which was to keep skin from drinking in my foundation. And it does help with this. I use a very light coverage foundation with SPF just to mask my redness. So its a great product for me. If it wasnt, I wouldnt pay $112 for it! When I type that amount out, it really just seems ridiculous, but it actually works and it hasnt bothered my skin so far. I think its the frankincense/boswellia.

Yonka has been good to me lately. Ive never had any other products actually do what they say, so perhaps it is worth the extra money. You should be pleased that you have invested so much in this skin care line over the years. You made a great choice and stuck with it. So many aestheticians are always looking for the next best product.

Directions for use:
In the morning (Jour means day in French):
  • After cleansing and spraying on Yonka Lotion toner
  • Apply a pea-sized dollop of STIMULASTINE JOUR over face and neck
  • Then use eye cream

What does a cleanser do and what should I look for?

Cleansers remove oil and debris from the surface of your skin and to some degree from inside the pores. Cleansers are not exfoliators and only do a surface cleansing. They are important in keeping your skin clean and free from built-up debris and oil. You should cleanse both morning and evening for proper skin care.

What you’re looking for in a cleanser is a product that first and foremost gets your skin clean without causing any other effect, such as dryness or irritation. If you experience any negative side effect from your cleanser, I suggest shopping around for something else. Since you are using it at least two times a day—every day—you just can’t afford to use something that isn’t right for your skin.

I prefer milk cleansers to soaps. And no matter what you choose to use, you always want a pH balanced, non-alkaline cleanser. Also, you want to rinse the cleanser off with water, not simply towel off or use cotton. There are numerous products to choose from, and that is why I recommend purchasing Nitrazine or other pH papers (see link below) so you can at least be guaranteed that the product you are using to clean your skin with is not stripping it, causing problems down the road.
