Jurlique Rose Hand and Body Care

(gifted) This gorgeous new duo from Jurlique has taken pride of place in my bathroom. There is something about a fancy hand wash & hand lotion that makes me feel like a proper adult who has their life together. Jurlique have revamped their hand care products and this duo are in their new beautiful packaging which has a very minimal, elegant feel to it. The bottles compliment each other and their subtle gold touches make them feel extra luxurious, they look fab in my bathroom.

They are both 300ml bottles which are fantastic value and it means they will last you a very long time. Both products have that classic, rich, floral fragrance which is thanks to their signature organic Rose Gallica scent which Jurlique is famous for. This brand is known for their organic roses and even if you usually shy away from rose scented products you have to give Jurlique a try, they have made a classic rose scent feel modern and fresh, it is really beautiful.

Jurlique Softening Hand Wash Rose 300ml*

Your hands are the part of your body which often get forgotten about when it comes to pampering. They get put through the ringer on a daily basis so having a product that isn’t going to be harsh, drying or strip them of moisture is so important. This soap free Jurlique hand wash is gentle and has been formulated to gently cleanse, soften and hydrate skin with its non-drying ingredients. Your hands feel clean, fresh and comfortable after using it and you can smell the beautiful rose aroma on your hands for ages after you have washed them.

This luxurious hand wash contains a special selected blend of natural botanicals and Rosa gallica extracts to cleanse and nurture your precious hands. Free from harsh chemicals, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances its pH-balanced formula leaves your hands feeling clean and refreshed while its delicate Rose fragrance uplifts your senses.

Jurlique Softening Rose Hand Lotion 300ml

Much like the hand wash, the hand lotion comes in a beautiful 300ml bottle in white with lovely gold details which is very fresh looking. The pump makes dispensing your hand lotion so easy and fuss free, I don’t only apply this to my hands, I like to use it right up my arms. The moisturising, lightweight formula means it doesn’t just sit on top of the skin making your hands feel greasy. It absorbs quickly and you can crack on with your day with velvety soft, hydrated hands.

Enriched with pure, natural extracts of Rosa gallica, Calendula and Chamomile this indulgent hand lotion deeply nourishes and hydrates the skin on your hands. Its powerful blend of natural antioxidants restore and protect the skin against environmental aggressors . Its lightweight, non-greasy texture absorbs easily leaving your hands replenished, soft and beautifully scented.

This duo is quite indulgent and luxurious but worth every penny. They’re fantastic quality and Jurlique use natural botanical extracts in all their products, so your hands are getting the very best treatment and you see and feel the difference in your skin after using this duo. Not to mention they are beautiful scented and look very stylish in your kitchen or bathroom (especially if you like that popular minimal Scandi look).

Emporio Armani In Love With You

In Love With You Armani

When it comes to Armani fragrances I have remained loyal to Si for years, it is one of my all-time favourite perfumes, so when Armani asked if I’d like to try their latest release, In Love With You I wondered how it would compare to Si. Let me tell you right out of the gate that they are so different and there is room in your fragrance collection for both! Si is a little more grown up and undeniably feminine. Whereas ‘In Love With You’ EDP is sweet and sexy but with a modern intense twist.

Armani, In Love With You Perfume.

Emporio Armani In Love With You EDP

In Love With You is a brand new women’s fragrance launched nationwide on January 30th 2019 and is a rich, fruity bold scent. It is quite intense and a little more playful than Armani Si and I like it!

It comes in a lovely simple, weighty bottle with a silver cap and the Armani Logo embossed into the spray cap. Those subtle details make the product feel so much more luxurious.

New Armani Perfume for 2019. In Love with You EDP

Top Notes – of black currant, cherry and raspberry.

Heart Notes of jasmine absolute and rose

Base Notes of wormwood, vanilla, patchouli and vetiver.

This fragrance has a great mix of floral, fruity and warm notes that work to make this scent intense, juicy and modern. It is the perfect scent for strong, sophisticated women. A wonderful day to night fragrance, the berry notes make it juicy and fresh, perfect for daytime. But if you apply it more liberally the sexy, adventurous heady base notes make it the perfect evening scent too.

Patchouli and vetiver are two of my favourite notes in a fragrance, I am always drawn to these notes and think they make a scent really edgy and interesting. I think the mix of notes works so well together. I love the sweetness of the fruity notes that give you that initial youthful feel. Then the floral notes make it a little more feminine and sophisticated and the base notes give it that sexy, modern scent. The layers compliment each other so well.

Emporio Armani In Love With You Perfume. New for 2019

If you’re looking for a new scent for 2019, I have to say this perfume from Emporio Armani has to be top of your shopping list. I think it is a scent that will have such a wide appeal. If you get the change to get to an Armani counter you have to try it for yourself. Make sure you spritz it and let it settle so you can really appreciate all the notes, you will not be disappointed.

Or if you need ideas for a Valentine’s Gift then look no further. This perfume would make such a thoughtful, luxurious gift for someone special.

Available nationwide and at www.armanibeauty.co.uk from 30th January 2019

RRP: £90 (100ml / £68 (50ml)

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.

Baylis and Harding Prosecco Fizz Handwash 500ml £6.70

This is a limited edition handwash in Prosecco Fizz. What could be more fitting for Christmas than a product that is prosecco scented? It is a huge 500ml bottle and the packaging looks very luxurious and expensive but the beauty of all Baylis & Harding products is that they’re all so purse friendly. This has gone straight into my bathroom for our house guests to enjoy over Christmas, although this huge bottle will last well into the New Year.

Candle Jar With Christmas Tree Lid – £10 from Amazon

This has to be my favourite gift option. Everything is so festive from the incredible packaging right to the Winter Spruce scent. This candle screams Christmas. I adore the Gold Christmas Tree detail on the lid it really makes this candle look so luxurious and very festive. The scent is light enough so you can have this candle lit in any room in your house and the scent lightly fills the room without being too overpowering.
