Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Favourites

Jurlique 12 Days of Glow

As many of you know I’m a big fan of Jurlique skincare. So I was thrilled when they asked me to be a part of their #12DaysofGlow campaign, which also Involves some of my favourite bloggers including Pixiwoo and Tales of a Pale Face to name a few. I’m day 9, if you want to see the other reviews click this link #12DaysofGlow (after you have read mine of course).

Being in my late 30’s the lovely skincare experts at Jurlique matched me up to their limited edition Purely Age Defying Gift Set* which is one of their skincare ranges aimed at people 35+, it targets the first visible signs of ageing. Its skincare that helps promote the regeneration of Elastin, Collagen and New Skin Cells, to keep your skin glowing and looking wonderful.

Before I talk about the products themselves I have to acknowledge the packaging for the Jurlique Gift Sets, they look luxurious and utterly beautiful. The gift set has a lovely festive red sleeve that slips off to reveal a beautiful gift box. The box is wood effect & is of great quality, its a box that you will be able to reuse and keep your treasures in. I know I will be keeping mine, its too pretty not too.

Inside you get 3 full size products from the Purely Age-Defying Range. So it is a great introduction to the range.

Jurlique Purely Age Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream*

This is a luxurious feeling face cream, it comes in a beautiful white frosted glass jar with a contrasting black lid. The cream feels quite thick but it doesn’t sit heavy on the skin, when you first apply it to your face and neck it feels a little greasy but give it a minute and your skin will have absorbed it to leave you with a velvety soft finish. Its so nourishing and instantly smoothing. It contains powerful natural ingredients such as,

Yeast Extract helps to promote collagen synthesis and acts as a tissue restructuring and repair agent. Amino Acid Lipid Complex promotes skin remodeling and contraction of collagen fibers. Rock Samphire Extract supports skin density while reducing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. Beech Tree Bud Extract accelerates the production of fresh new cells.

So your skin will feel the benefit of all those wonderful powerful ingredients working to increase skin firmness, skin tone and hydration levels. After using this for almost 5 weeks I have noticed my skin is plumper, smoother and brighter. The thing you will notice almost straight away is that your skin looks smoother, thats why I think it makes the perfect base for foundation. It helps give you that flawless base.

Jurlique Purely Age Defying Beauty Eye Cream*

This eye cream is a little thicker than the face cream but is just as easy to massage in, I do like to use this at night as when I do I wake up with almost no puffiness around my eyes, the skin looks less dehydrated and that means my fine lines are on the decrease! That makes me very happy. I do suffer from fine lines when my under eyes are dehydrated and having an eye cream that helps combat that means my concealer sinks into my lines less & my eyes show less signs of fatigue.

This eye cream is formulated with Blue Algae Extract and Baobab Fruit Pulp Extract which increases skin firmness to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Jurlique’s renowned Eyebright Extract is blended with Arnica to reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles whilst Vitamin C protects the delicate skin from environmental aggressors.

I would say if you have very sensitive eyes this may irritate them, as it has quite a noticeable herbal scent, its been fine for me and I’ve experienced no stinging or irritation, just something to note if you’re normally sensitive to fragranced skincare around your eyes.

Jurlique Purely Age Defying Firming Face Oil*

Now this is the jewel in the crown for me, I love the other two products in this set & think they work well together but I’m just in love this the Face Oil. I love how little product you need and how soft it leaves my skin feeling. In the evening I can’t wait to cleanse my makeup off just so I can put this on and let it work its magic (although its not magic its science). In the morning my skin is looking its best (thats how best I can describe it). This oil is the key to a great skin day.

Like the other products in this range it contains powerful natural ingredients,

Jurlique’s Age Repair Biodynamic+ Blend helps to deeply replenish the skin and improve the skin tone whilst diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Purely Age Defying Firming Face Oil is also infused with a trio of potent anti-ageing ingredients; Blackcurrant Seed Oil helps to improve elasticity and firmness, Buriti Oil reduces fine lines and wrinkles and Rock Samphire Extract helps to support collagen synthesis and promotes a firmer complexion.

I love using face oils but this has worked its way to the top of the tree & I have been singing its praises for the past month. Although the visible results speak for themselves, I have had quite a few people say my skin is looking good & I have been putting it down to this range & in particular this oil. Its love.

Jurlique Skincare Set

This set would be an ideal gift for anyone 35+ who’s concerned about the first signs of ageing, or anyone that is looking for products that will keep their skin hydrated and improve both skin tone and hydration. This Purely Age-Defying Favourites Gift Set is £90 and available online here.

Origins Dr Weil Mega Bright Eye Cream

Origins Dark Circle Minimizer

Harvard-trained medical doctor and botanist Andrew Weil has again teamed up with Origins to develop this new Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer*. Origins say this eye cream will  ‘keep your eye area looking bright and also helps strengthen fragile, dry eye skin to help the appearance of darkness from circling back’. I have to say I agree 100%.

Origins Eye Cream

This Origins eye cream has a thick creamy feel to it, the consistency reminds me of the Kiehl’s creamy eye treatment with avocado. I’ve been using this mostly in the morning, as I said it’s quite thick and is nice to apply, it gives you an instant feeling of hydration. As soon as you put this on your under eye area feels smooth and looks luminous and fresh. Perfect if you have dehydrated under eyes.

It works as a really good base for concealer as its so rich and my concealer sits really well on top of it. It stops any creasing and keeps the area hydrated all day. This cream is packed full of skin benefits such as,

  • White Peony for its anti-oxidant properties
  • Ume, from the fruit of the Japanese Plum Blossom tree, to help minimise the dark circles
  • Grapefruit to help reduce puffiness
  • Magnolia Extract works to tighten and strengthen the delicate under eye skin
  • Molasses for brightening & evening skin tone

You only need a small amount of this cream and it is easily absorbed and keeps the skin feeling soft throughout the day. I would say my under eye looks brighter (which makes me happy), but I think I also have my cleaner diet to thank for that. I have been eating more fresh fruit and vegetables this year so I’d say a good diet, combined with this Origins cream are making a good team. I’m hoping that as I continue to use the Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer for a second month I see even more results and a reduction in discolouration.

It is a lovely addition to my skincare regime and I think this pot is going to last me quite a while. So if you’re someone that needs help keeping the dark circles at bay, puffiness to a minimum and longs for brighter under eyes then this Origins Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer is a must for you.

REN Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel

REN Eye Cream

Eye Creams are a product I am obsessed with, I seem to be in a never ending hunt for that perfect one. I am now 35 and have found that my under eye area has become alot more dehydrated these past few years and my fine lines are not so fine anymore. I need my eye creams to work a little harder. This REN Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel* has been effective in hydrating and keeping my under eye area looking brighter.

I have been using it for about 4 weeks now and I like to use it in the morning because it is formulated to sooth and de puff your tired eyes & I really need all the help I can get in that department. The clear gel formula I found nice and easy to pat in under my eye, very cooling on the skin. It makes my under eye feel fresh, cool and hydrated. The pump means that you only dispense just enough product, I use one pump for each eye and that gives me the perfect amount. I am hoping this lasts me quite a while as I’m seeing some good results.

REN SkincareREN

REN have jam packed this eye gel with so many beneficial ingredients,

  • Vitamin P from Damask Rose Water is anti-inflammatory and protects capillary network
  • Flavonoids from Arnica reduce puffiness by stimulating the drainage process
  • Mucilages from Fig soothe and instantly refresh the eye area
  • Polysaccharides from Zostera Marina increase and maintain moisture levels
  • Ginsengoside from Chinese Ginseng boosts circulation in the capillaries
  • Tyrosinase Inhibitor from Wild Canadian Rumex reduces dark pigmentation and redness

This is suitable for all skin types and is perfect for this time of year, when our skin needs a boost of hydration and we aren’t getting enough sleep due to all those festive parties! Say goodbye to puffy tired looking eyes with this gel. There are also a few other products in this Vita Mineral Range from REN and they include a Day Cream, Rescue Cream, Skin Serum Oil and a Lip Balm. I have my eye on the serum next!
