Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser

It took me a wee while to get used to the scent of this Jurlique Soothing Cleanser, it has a very herbal smell to it. Its very strong, at first I wasn’t too sure about it. The sales assistant in SpaceNK recommended this as i wanted a morning cleanser, an alternative to my Liz Earl Cleanse & Polish. I wanted a non hot cloth cleanser for the morning so this is what she recommended for sensitive skin.

OK so scent aside (I am used to it now) this is a great cleanser it has a very calming affect on the skin and is really gives your skin a deep clean. It also removes all traces of makeup and this I really like. I hate cleansing then having to repeat because there is still makeup left. Double cleansing is OK if you are wearing a little more makeup than normal but when you’re using quite a pricey cleanser i don’t want to use twice the amount each time.

Since using this cleanser i have noticed my skin is calmer and less red. This cleanser doesn’t strip the moisture from your skin it leaves your skin feeling bright and fresh. So i am enjoying using it & after using it for a good 6 weeks i still have over half the bottle left. For the 200ml it costs – £27.50

This isn’t the first Julique product i’ve used, i have used their hand creams and loved them. I am defiantly going to look at their product range and pick up a few more skincare items. Do you have any recommendations.

I have no words for how much i love this product. Yes i read all the reviews about this and thought blah – how good can a beauty spritz be? Well the answer is REALLY REALLY good i made this purchase from Space NK in Covent Garden – where i was served by a lovely young lady (name i forget) but i was recommended this as i have had such sensitive skin lately and this extra long crappy wintery weather we have had is drying out my skin and making my face dull and sensitive. I was so fed up with it and i did not feel like myself, dull skin is horrid.

I also bought the Jurlique Cleanser at the same time (also recommended by the lady in Space NK). I have only been using this a week and so can’t say too much on it, apart from it seems to be working, but we will see. I like to use things like this for a good month before giving my opinion.

But back to the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, I bought the 100ml bottle for £32, i started using it right away whilst i was in London for the weekend, London can be hard on your skin all that pollution and travelling also dries out your skin. I used it on the plane to stop my skin drying out, it felt really nice. I have to say this product feels so luxurious and the peppermint scent really wakes you up and leaves your skin looking fresh and vibrant. I have noticed my skin being less dry & dull not to mention it has helped reduce the redness on my cheeks. Although this might be in combination with the Jurlique Cleanser i am trying.

Do not be put off by the price, yes its a little bit on the pricey side but you really only need to use a little bit and it can be used in so many ways – under makeup as a wakeup spritz or to freshen up your makeup, its great for travelling to stop your skin drying out or breaking out. A bottle of this will really last you as i’d say 2-3 sprays is all you need. You can purchase a smaller bottle from feel unique for £9.90 with FREE delivery. I highly recommend it and plan on purchasing it for all my girlfriends birthdays this year. So all in all I think its going to be a staple in  my makeup bag from now on.
