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.

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.

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.

skinChemists Bee Venom Facial Serum*

I’ve been using this serum for a couple of weeks and I have to say It is easy to see why the Bee Venom range is skinChemists best selling collection, not to mention the Duchess of Cornwall’s skincare product of choice. With over 50 years experience skinChemists offer quality skincare that delivers results.

Bee Venom has become a very popular ingredient in skincare over the past few years and it works by:-

Fooling the skin into thinking it has been stung, the Bee Venom causes the body to increase the level of blood circulation to the application area, encouraging heightened production of collagen and elastin. This increased production restores a plumper and firmer skin structure, slowing down skin sagging and dramatically reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

The main ingredients in Bee Venom Serum are:

  • Bee Venom which aims to plump and firm the skin while stimulating collagen production
  • A blend of Amino Acids aim to balance the skin, whilst improving skin clarity and encouraging an even skin tone for a brighter complexion.
  • Hyaluronic Acid aims to maintain moisture within the skin

It has a lightweight gel consistency which after you massage it in to the skin feels like it almost evaporates. There is no sticky, greasy residue left behind and It leaves the skin feeling very soft, hydrated and visibly smooth. It feels great layered under your other skincare and gives you a nice base for makeup. I also like that it has a subtle sweet scent.

This is a perfect addition to your skincare routine for Spring as it plumps your skin and leaves it with a fresh, healthy glow. Coming from a very wet, dry Winter this is exactly what my skin needed.

** During the month of March if you use my code LETSTALKBLOG this Bee Venom Facial Serum will be reduced from £135.00 to £19.99 which is an incredible saving **

Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Age Defence Youth Facial Oil

Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Youth Oil

Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Youth Oil

Roses on Valentines Day doesn’t just have to mean flowers…..right!? Let me introduce to you to the beautiful Rose Quartz Age Defence Youth Facial Oil*, this is such a skincare treat.

I really enjoy using a facial oil in my skincare routine although I often think people are worried about oils leaving their skin too greasy or that they’re too heavy but there is a facial oil to suit all skin types and treat many skin concerns. I think it’s a step that everyone should introduce to their routine. Oils penetrate the skin at a deeper level than creams and are often a fantastic way of protecting skin against free radicals, give deeper hydration and rejuvenate dull complexions.

Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Age Defence Youth Facial Oil

I have been testing a beautiful Rose Quartz Oil from Skin Chemists and it has become a staple in my skincare routine as it is packed full of skin loving ingredients which are helping restore my natural healthy glow and leaves my skin feeling velvety soft.

The main active ingredients in the formulation are:
1) Rose Otto Oil helps to restore moisture balance in the skin. Its anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties aim to repair and protect the skin, whilst firming and toning.
2) Vitamin E aims to reduce skin damage, whilst protecting against daily damage.
3) Almond Oil works to provide deep hydration and nourishment, brightening and renewing the appearance of the skin.

It is a lightweight feel, more like water than an oil, it is so nice to massage in to the skin and I love the uplifting floral scent, its beautiful. I like to apply two or three drops to my skin in the evening and it helps me wake up with skin that looks well rested and refreshed. Although I do also like to add a drop to my moisturiser and apply after my serum in the morning because it adds just the little extra hydration to my skin. I like that it helps my makeup apply smoothly too. I think because of its light non greasy consistency you can use this morning or night, or both!

It comes beautifully packaged in a bright pink box and inside is a simple glass bottle with a pipet dispenser. It feels luxurious and the fact the product has a pretty pink hue is nice too, feels very pretty.

So if you’re looking for a product to give your skin a boost of anti-oxidants, hydration and radiance then this is the product for you. Why not treat yourself this Valentines Day!

During the month of February this Rose Quartz Age Defence Youth Facial Oil will be reduced from £99 to £24.99 which is an incredible saving & just for a little extra 20% off you can use my code LETSTALKBLOG which will make this oil just £19.99!
