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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
