Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Collection

Jurlique Herbal Signature Moisture Range

Jurlique has completely revamped & remastered their iconic Herbal Recovery Range. Not only has the packaging received a (stunning) facelift but the new formulas are more potent, have a higher concentration of botanicals and the ingredients have all been meticulously selected to improve the overall appearance of dull, uneven skin. There are 5 products in this new range, including a serum, hydrating mist, eye cream, moisturising lotion and rich moisturising cream.

This collection focuses on minimising the signs of ageing, reducing dullness and helping your skin retain more moisture. As I Head into my 40’s this range this new Herbal Recovery Signature range is perfect for my skin type & immediate skin concerns.

New Jurlique Skincare Collection

I’ve been trying 2 out of the 5 products from this new collection and I’ve noticed a positive change in my skin. As we head into the more dry, cold weather of Autumn/Winter I think these products will really help replenish and nourish my skin.

At the heart of the new Herbal Recovery Signature range is a more potent signature blend of powerful botanical extracts. The Viola Tricolor is the pure Viola from Jurlique’s organic farm in the South Australian hills & they’re handpicked only when they’re at their peak.

  • Viola Tricolor: Our highest dose yet (more than triple) of our vital antioxidant botanical protects from signs of premature ageing
  • Yarrow rejuvenates and reduces the appearance of fine lines

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Eye Cream

Jurlique Herbal Recover Signature Eye Cream

I hear a lot of talk about whether or not an eye cream is a necessity and although I don’t think it is vital I still like to use a product that has been specifically designed for this area. The skin around your eye is so delicate and particularly thin and prone to damage. It is where I show signs of being tired and dehydrated so I prefer to use a cream that can minimise these by plumping, hydrating and adding luminosity to my skin, an eye cream is a really good way of doing that. So if an eye cream is within your budget I would say it is a great (not mandatory) step in your skincare regime.

This new addition to my skincare routine from Jurlique is lovely and lightweight, it feels almost like a serum in texture. I pat it all around my orbital bone and on the tops of my cheekbones too and it gives my skin a boost of hydration and leaves my eye area looking fresh, more awake and it helps makeup/concealer sit so much better, I think it is because it plumps, smooths my fine lines and is super hydrating.

Rich, hydrating and bursting with plant antioxidants, this eye cream contains extracts of Yarrow, Japanese Cedar Bud and Beech Tree Bud to firm, re-energise the delicate skin around the eye. As well as combat those pesky fine lines.

The hero ingredient is Persian Silk Tree which minimises the appearance of puffiness, dark circles and smooths skin! Everything you need in an eye cream!

• 80% of women agree skin feels replenished and hydrated

• 88% of women agree skin feels firmer

I am taking this with me on my 40th birthday trip to Amsterdam, I will need all the help I can get to combat those late nights, effects of travelling and all the pollutants from a city break!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Eye Cream

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Moisturising Lotion

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Moisturising Lotion

If you like to use a lightweight moisturiser then this Herbal Recovery Moisturising Lotion will be right up your street, it’s not as heavy as your standard moisture cream and it won’t leave your skin feeling greasy. It has a very lightweight, fluid texture which is easily absorbed, it instantly makes my skin look fresh and feel so smooth. I like to use it as part of my morning routine as I find it works well under makeup but I prefer to use a heavier night cream. This lotion is jam-packed full of natural and effective age-defying botanicals including,

Cedar Bud Extract to help nourish and revitalise your skin’s glow, improves skins suppleness and reduces the visible signs of ageing. Yarrow, Viola Tricolor and Marshmallow Root replenish your complexion and smooths and softens skin helping reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Signature Range

It comes in a lovely pink ombre effect glass bottle with a pump dispenser, I’d say 3-4 pumps give me enough product for both my face & neck (and that is quite a generous amount of product).

• 80% of women agree Herbal Recovery Signature Moisturising Lotion reveals radiant younger-looking skin

I have really been enjoying using this moisturising lotion and would never have thought such a lightweight product could hydrate my skin so well. It has given my complexion a revived radiance (ideal as we head into the colder months) and I’m thrilled to have it in my skincare routine

Replenishing Skincare from Jurlique

I have to say the packaging is just stunning, I love the pink colour palette and the ombre effect adds a fresh modern look which I think It’s quite eye-catching.  Each product comes in a glass jar/bottle so it feels luxurious and has that quality feel to it. Top marks on the packaging for sure!

This new revamped version of Jurliques Iconic Herbal Recovery Collection contains their most concentrated formulas ever, optimised with advanced absorption, a more luxurious feel and a subtle scent inspired by the botanical drying shed at their Australian Farm. If you’re looking to add a few new products to your Autumn/Winter skincare regime then you might want to give this new Signature Collection a go.

Michael Buble By Invitation Rose Gold EDP

By invitation rose gold edition

New Michael Bublé-By-Invitation Rose Gold Fragrance

I dubbed the original By Invitation fragrance from Michael as my favourite discovery of 2016, it was a really sexy fresh scent and encapsulated luxury and so I’m so excited that Michael Bublé is back with a new version, this latest release from Michael is just as luxurious and has a real Spring/Summer feel to it.

If, like me, you often overlook ‘Celebrity Fragrances’ I urge you to give this one a go. Unlike most celebrity endorsed products Michael Bublé himself was actually an integral part of every aspect of both fragrances and I have to say this new Rose Gold edition is something very special and has that touch of glamour and luxury you’d expect from the man himself.

Michael Buble’s new ‘By Invitation Rose Gold’ is a Floral Oriental Gourmand. A charming, feminine fragrance, it’s sensual, glamorous and combines a variety of luxurious warm, floral tones. This fragrance is very charming and elegant and it not only has a very layered, luxurious mix of notes it is a bottle that will look stunning on your vanity.

By Invitation Rose Gold Perfume

By Invitation Rose Gold EDP 

This beautiful new By Invitation Rose Gold is a Floral Oriental Gourmand. A charming, feminine fragrance – it’s sensual, glamorous and combines a variety of luxurious warm, floral tones. It’s a tender, modern sophisticated scent and I think it’s an ideal Spring/Summer perfume.

Starting with sophisticated top notes of radiant magnolia, red fruits and Granit pear, By Invitation Rose Gold has the tenderness of a rose and peony heart, with a hint of black plum. With a lingering praline and vanilla base – and just a touch of precious spice – the fragrance is charming and elegant.

This perfume has quite an unusual mix of notes, it’s a Floral Oriental Gourmand so you can make out the sweetness of the pear and red fruits which give it a Summer feel. The beautiful rose and peony give you a familiar fresh and floral scent whilst the black plum, praline and vanilla give it a warm, sweet but sexy twist and I just love the hint of precious spice that adds a very modern layer to this perfume. Your senses are really taken on a scent journey with this perfume and I just love it.

NEW Michael Bublé By Invitation Rose Gold Perfume

We have to discuss the stunning packaging and bottle, both of which have such a luxurious feel to them. The jewellery inspired bottle is a nod to the original By Invitation fragrance, I think this new Rose Gold release has a more contemporary feel as Rose Gold is very on trend.

I really like the way the bottle is suspended in the centre of a metal rose gold circle (which is designed to resemble premium jewellery), it looks extremely sophisticated and very elegant. The perfume also has a soft blush pink tint to it which makes it look very feminine and sexy. The bottle is weighty and there is such a luxurious feel to this design, and I think the bottle is quite unusual for a perfume bottle. You can tell a lot of time and work went into developing both the fragrance and the iconic bottle.

Gift Ideas From Jurlique

Christmas Gift Ideas From Jurlique

Christmas Gift Ideas From Jurlique

If you’re not already familiar with Jurlique, they’re an Australian brand which was started back in 1985 by a husband & wife dedicated to harnessing the power of nature to create incredibly effective products. Their ethos was Nature + Science = Beauty and to this day Jurlique develops high-performance skincare, using potent, biodynamic (Biodynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition), organic and natural ingredients sourced the world over.

Jurlique has an Organic Farm in the Adelaide Hills of Australia where the magic happens and this was the brainchild of the founders Dr Jurgen Klien and his wife Ulrike, a Horticulturist and a Botanist with a passion for combining nature with science to deliver natural skincare with long-lasting effects. To this day the farm is thriving and its where many of the herbs, flowers and plants are grown for Jurlique’s products.

Jurlique Sweet Violet Grapefruit Hydrating Mist

Jurlique Sweet Violet & Grapefruit Hydrating Mist 

I am a long time user of Jurlique’s classic Rosewater Balancing Mist and always have a bottle on my desk just to refresh my skin throughout the day. I was so excited to learn they’d released a lovely limited edition version. The Sweet Violet and Grapefruit Mist are packed full of potent natural antioxidants, which help improve skins moisture levels, leaving the skin feeling hydrated, soothed and balanced.

This is such a versatile product. I like to use it on clean skin before my skincare regime, and also throughout the day to refresh my skin or indeed to refresh my makeup. It gives the skin a real boost of moisture, the scent is also very calming and a nice blend of zesty fruit and floral notes. I like that it comes out as light misting of moisture to your skin, and doesn’t drench your face.

Jurlique products always come so beautifully packaged and this hydrating mist does not disappoint. The outer box has a gorgeous purple floral design with gold writing. The purple ombre bottle itself is simply stunning, it looks so luxurious. This would make a thoughtful gift for anyone who enjoys skincare and is maybe missing out on this step in their routine.

Jurlique Skin Brightening Facial Treatment Masks

Jurlique Skin Brightening Facial Treatment Mask

2017 was the year of the sheet mask and I for one love this beauty trend. Sheet masks are the ultimate in pampering. I was very excited to hear that Jurlique had released their own sheet masks and I love that Jurlique has included an extra piece for under your chin. What a fantastic idea! It helps to keep the mask in place a lot easier

  • Helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolouration, addressing the signs of a dull, uneven skin tone.
  • The innovative formula with VitaBrightKX and other potent brightening ingredients delivers a highly concentrated solution to help inhibit melanin synthesis, reducing the appearance of dark spots and discolouration to help revive a dull looking complexion with uneven skin tone and texture.

It recommends to leave the mask on for 15 minutes but I have found with most sheet masks that you can really leave them on for longer. I tend to have a bath when I use a sheet mask so I just leave it on the whole time & that tends to be about 30 – 40 minutes. The mask fits my face well (I have quite a small face) and was easy to get into place, it felt cooling and very relaxing and there was quite a lot of product to massage in after I removed the mask which felt so nice.

You get 5 masks in each box, I have been using mine the night before a big event or indeed after. These are quite luxurious masks so I have been using them as a real skincare treat but I have to say they leave my skin feeling incredibly soft and looking fresh and radiant. In terms of reducing dark spots and uneven skin tone, this is something that takes time and I will update you if I see a positive change in my discolouration.
