Skincare Sundays :: Jurlique

c/o Jurlique

I actually first learned of Jurlique from my mom. She's been a long time fan of the Rosewater Balancing Mist. After borrowing her bottle over a month ago because I ran out of my beloved Caudalie Beauty Elixir I fell in love and wanted to try more from Jurlique. I'm not sure why I hadn't jumped on this brand earlier as they don't test on animals and use high quality, natural ingredients.

For the last couple of weeks, I've been using four products from the line and so I thought I'd do a review for those of you who might be interested in the brand!

The Jurlique Citrus Hand Cream is definitely a luxury hand cream. It's creamy, rich, and leaves the hands feeling soft but not greasy. The light citrus scent is perfect for Spring and Summer and the tube is a great size to throw in your bag. Although I've loved this hand cream, I'm not sure that I would repurchase after I finish this tube. It's an expensive hand cream ($25 for 1.4 oz) that just gets used up too quickly. This is one of those products that I love and would purchase if I felt like splurging on myself, but for everyday use, I'd say that you can get the same results with the L'occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream ($28 for 5.2 oz) my holy grail hand cream for the last three years and still going strong! But for those of you who want to try something new or are looking for something to splurge on, the Jurlique hand creams are definitely worth trying also comes in Rose & Lavender scents.

The Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel is a soothing antioxidant serum to help comfort delicate skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, dryness, and dullness. This serum has a light gel texture that quickly absorbs into the skin upon contact. I haven't used it long enough to decide whether it has helped with fine lines but it has definitely helped my skin appear more plump and radiant. I love using it at night with some sort of a moisturizing oil over it; you'll wake up with an amazing glow!

Okay, I am seriously IN LOVE with this product. I literally CANNOT be without this. It's advertised as an all purpose salve that moisturizes, softens, and protects dry or chapped skin. This balm also comes in the original scent which is a light citrus scent. At first I tried this as a lip balm, which is how I think most people use it. I thought it was okay as a lip balm, nothing too amazing. The life changing moment happened when I ran out of cuticle oil. My cuticles always get very dry so I always make sure I give them a little extra moisture throughout the day. I tried this balm as a cuticle moisturizer and I fell in love. This balm kept my cuticles soft, moisturized, and healthy. Once during the day and once at night did the trick! My cuticles are more groomed, don't need any pushing back, and stay moisturized. Plus the light rose scent is beautiful. At just $6.50 a tin, I've picked up a few more so that I can leave one next to my bed, one at work, and one in the bathroom. I seriously can't live without this!

This cleanser is great for those who have dry or sensitive skin. The Groomwell and Sichuan Peppercorn help to soothe and rebalance skin while the Macadamia oil helps with dryness. I love to use this in the morning since it's milky, gentle, and leaves the skin feeling clean but not a tight squeaky clean. I don't like to use very harsh or deep cleansers in the morning as there isn't really a need for it. No dirt, dust, or pollution has collected on the face over night so I stick to something gentle that gets rid of the night's oils and remaining product without completely stripping the skin. This Jurlique cleanser is great for that purpose and I definitely recommend it to those who need a morning cleanser or those with sensitive or dry skin.
