Jurlique Activating Water Essence

I discovered this product last year and it was the first Essence I had tried. I’d heard using an Essence was a very popular step in Asian skincare routines but was dubious as to whether I needed to add another step to my already quite rigorous regime. After using it for a while I realised that it was that perfect step for refreshing and hydrating your skin before going in with your serum. Just to be clear, an Essence is not a toner, nope it’s used after both cleansing and toning, it can replenish moisture, balance skins PH levels and help skin look glowing and it is now one of the steps in my routine that I look forward too.

At the centre of the Jurlique Activating Water Essence is their star ingredient – Marshmallow Root Extract, which is great at deeply hydrating skin and improving its ability to retain moisture. If you have yet to try an essence I highly recommend trying one.

Favourite Jurlique Products

Rose Moisture Plus Balancing Serum

Jurlique are well-known for their incredible quality rose products, they have an Organic Farm in the Adelaide Hills of Australia where they grow many of the herbs, flowers (including their roses) and plants for their products. This serum is part of their Moisture Plus range and it is fantastic at reviving tired, dry skin. It combines rose hip fruit oil, evening primrose oil and green tea extract to protect the skin’s barrier and provide extended moisture to keep skin cushioned, fresh and looking radiant.

Purely Age Defying Firming Face Oil

LOVE this product, in fact I really like the whole Purely Age Defying range, if I was pushed to name my must have product from Jurlique it would 100% be this Face Oil. I have used up so many bottles and always have one on the go. I use it at night and it performs nothing short of a miracle because when I wake up my skin looks well rested and healthy, it also works to even skintone and keep skin looking plump. It is 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. So your skin is in good hands with this and my skin always feels incredible after I have used it.

Favourite Jurlique Skincare Products

Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder

Most people are unaware that Jurlique do a finishing powder, I think it is the only makeup product they stock but it is one of my absolute favourites. This loose powder is so fine & lightweight that it never feels heavy or drying on the skin. It’s a translucent powder so it’s not going to add coverage or leave a white cast to your skin. It is great at setting makeup and keeping that oily t zone in check. I like to apply this with a big powder brush & sweep the product across my t-zone & chin, it has a really nice floral scent and my go to powder for eliminating that dreaded shine but leaving the skin with a slight matte velvety smooth finish.

It contains the key ingredients Corn Starch & Rice Starch which act as natural substitutes for talc, while Silican imparts a smooth texture on skin, Glycerin helps to moisturise and prevent moisture loss and Arnica helps soothe and cool the skin. If you like your setting powder to leave your skin with a slight matte finish without looking flat then this would be a great product for you.

Jurlique Purely Age Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream

This moisturiser does feel quite thick and rich when you first apply it but give it a minute and your skin will have absorbed it to leave you with a velvety soft finish. It’s so nourishing and instantly smoothing. It contains powerful natural ingredients such as, Yeast Extract to help promote collagen synthesis, 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 and finally Beech Tree Bud Extract accelerates the production of fresh new cells. For me the one thing I noticed almost instantly from using this is my skin looked smoother, which is why I think it makes the perfect base for foundation. It helps give you that flawless base.

Jurlique Beauty Box

I’m excited to see some of my favourite Jurlique products included in this box, the Rose Hand Cream is beautifully hydrating and leaves your hands feeling soft and smooth, I always have a tube of this on the go. Their Rosewater Balancing Mist is one of Jurlique’s best known products and is perfect for refreshing your skin (especially during the Summer) and giving the skin a boost of hydration. I leave this sat on my desk so I can spritz it throughout the day, its nice both under makeup or on top to refresh the skin.

I’m excited to try the Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser It sounds very gentle and lovely for days when your skin is feeling dry and looking dull. The ingredients enhance cell turnover and dissolve dirt and impurities so this will work well as an evening cleanse to remove all that pollution and dirt from the skin and enhance skins radiance.

All the products in this box are luxurious and have a list of skin loving ingredients, of course at the centre are the beautiful roses which are grown on Jurlique’s biodynamic, organic farm which is nestled in the Adelaide Hills of Australia. The farm uses steam, water and fire to extract the intense hydrating properties of roses for the Rose Hydration Range. If you’re ever lucky enough to be Adelaide you can book a tour of the Jurlique Farm to see and learn about the nature and science behind our skin care products.

If you tend to shy away from Rose scented products because you think they are a little old fashioned or smell too floral don’t let that put you off. Jurlique’s Rose Collection is delicate and light in scent and smells a lot more modern and dewy. If you have the chance you must try it for yourself I think you will be surprised at how lovely and fresh the scent is.

Did you manage to get your hands on this Beauty Box? I would love to hear what Jurlique products you love and use in your skincare routine. Oh & Jurlique are running a competition to win the Jurlique Iconic Collection worth £152 – more details below.

Jurlique Hand and Nail Care

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream 2016

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream 2016

I’m excited to Introduce you to 3 new and exciting products from one of my favourite skincare brands, Jurlique. They are releasing a complete hand care ritual and I think you are going to love them!

A little background – Jurlique is 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 develop 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.

I always get excited when Jurlique launch a new product and to have 3 to share with you today is pretty special. Jurlique have extended their hand care range to include an Exfoliating Treatment Mask, a Nail & Cuticle Treatment Oil and also a limited edition Rose Handcream Handpicked. Everything you need to keep your hands looking and feeling their best.

Jurlique Exfoliating Hand Treatment

Jurlique Exfoliating Hand Treatment* 100ml £20

This has a cream texture with tiny exfoliating Jojoba beads which provide just enough scrub without being abrasive. I like that this is a multi benefit 2 in 1 treatment mask and scrub. Apply a generous amount to the backs of your hands, fingers and forearms, relax for 5 minutes then with a little warm water massage off making use of the Jojoba beads. It leaves your hands velvety soft, smooth and nourished. It includes,

  • Red & White Clay – to absorb impurities
  • Jojoba Beads – to gently exfoliate
  • Shea Butter – to soften and hydrate
  • Calendula Extract – to nourish and protect

I can really see a difference in my hands after using this, they look healthier and they don’t get dry as quickly. I know a specific hand scrub isn’t a must have but if your budget allows for one then this Jurlique offering is luxurious and very effective. I have promised myself to make it part of my weekly manicure routine. Got to look after those hands, after all its one of the areas that shows the first signs of ageing. You get 100ml of product and so that will last a good few months.

10ml for £12, I think this oil is a bargain & a product that will serve you well and last for ages and one that I am very excited to have in my collection. My cuticles will be in tip top condition.

Jurlique Nail and Cuticle Treatment Oil

Jurlique Nail & Cuticle Treatment Oil* 10ml £12

I have to say that I have terrible cuticles, they are always dry, flaky and need a little TLC! This oil is just what I needed, it couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Its an indulgent treatment oil that will nourish, condition and soothe cuticles as well as strengthening dry brittle nails.

This has a very fancy & fuss free pipet dispenser so you only need a very small amount of oil on each cuticle, I would say 2 – 3 drops will be enough for both hands. I gently massage the oil around my cuticle and nails then leave it to sink in. Its quite greasy so you may want to do this treatment when you have time to relax & not be on your computer, phone etc. The oil contains,

  • Rosemary Extract – to strengthen dry brittle nails
  • Horsetail Extract – to strengthen dry brittle nails
  • Carrot Root – to soothe cracked cuticles
  • Calendula – to nourish and soothe dry cuticles
  • Almond & Macadamia Oils – to intensely hydrate and restore moisture

Jurlique Rose Handcream ltd Edition

Jurlique Rose Handcream Handpicked* 150ml £36

This Jurlique release is a limited edition version of one of their most iconic and best selling products – and I have to say this offering is my favourite Jurlique handcream to date. This Rose handcream is simply beautiful, everything from the outer cardboard packaging right down to the cream itself is so luxurious and smells so good.

This 2016 limited edition Handpicked version features Jurlique’s unique Rosa gallica Flower Extract. This precious extract is drawn exclusively from this years vintage of the pure and potent Roses grown at the Jurlique Farm in the Adelaide Hills.

All the roses used in this limited edition product were handpicked and all the Rosa galica Flower Extract from this years harvest has gone into this luxurious handcream so it won’t be used in another Jurlique product this year.

  • Sweet Almond Oil – to moisturise and soften
  • Rosa gallica Flower Extract – to protect, restore moisture and soothe
  • Macadamia Oil – to intensly hydrate and restore moisture
  • Calendula – to soothe, soften and protect against dry skin

Its a rich cream that will nourish, deeply moisturise and replenish dry hands. Leaving them feeling velvety soft and smelling beautiful. This isn’t a cream for your handbag, this is a beautifully packaged cream that will be beautiful on your vanity or bedside table so you are reminded to apply it throughout the day. You get a whopping 150ml of product and you need only the smallest amount to feel the benefits. This would make a really thoughtful gift or treat for someone special.
