Jurlique started with a dream; to connect people back to nature.
Unfortunately my first encounter wasn’t as profound as a sudden realisation to be connected back to nature. I received a sample of Jurlique’s Moisture Plus Moisturising Lotion with a makeup purchase I made. Because I have bad skin in general, usually moisturisers always feel thick and irritating on my skin, so I was surprised at how lightweight and hydrating the moisturiser felt! Impressed, it was only natural that I had to go back for more!
Jurlique is all about creating a pure and natural skin care range by combining the arts of alchemy, herbal medicine and homeopathy. Quite fittingly, in order to achieve such a dream, the creators sought the world for a place that was both pure and natural to grow their iconic ingredients and they found no better than Adelaide Hills in South Australia!
I set the store clerk a task to find me 3 products that would suit my horrible combination skin and here’s how it turned out!
Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Mask
I have combination skin in probably the worst way possible – it’s like from one extreme to another. My skin can range from super oily to extremely dry all at the same time. Jurlique’s herbal recovery antioxidant mask keeps my skin feeling hydrated and the antioxidant beads (which are quite fun to pop against your skin I might add) really helps to target the first signs of ageing.
+ Skin feels hydrated and looks radiant
+ Helps minimise effects of dehydration and dullness
+ Gently exfoliates for smoother and brighter skin
My skin always feels and looks rejuvenated after using this mask. It also feels bouncy and my pores look smaller. Unfortunately, the effects don’t last for more than a day, so you need to use it approximately 3 times a week for upkeep.
Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Lotion
Jurlique’s Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Lotion is extremely lightweight, hydrating and protective. As a result skin is kept soft, soothed and balanced.
+ Helps protect skin from environmental damage
+ Helps soften, soothe and rebalance dryness
+ Leaves skin hydrated and moisturised
A sample of this product alone made me want to buy Jurlique products. This product provides hydration for my skin without irritation. Jurlique’s natural and lightweight feel on my inflamed skin is testament to the natural goodness of the products. It’s soothing, feels incredibly light on my skin and it smells really nice too! Waking up after using this product, my skin has a rejuvenated glow and doesn’t feel so inflamed. A word of caution though, if you have acne prone skin like me, use this product every second day or only at night.
Citrus Purifying Mist
The Citrus Purifying Mist is especially designed for those with oily skin (aka perfect for me!). To be used daily, this mist clarifies and purifies an oily complexion.
+ Energises and purifies skin
+ Leaves oily skin feeling refined and refreshed
+ Possesses antioxidant properties
Out of the three products I bought from Jurlique, I liked this one the least. This product is designed for oily skin and while initially the product does provide relief, leaves your skin feeling fresh and has a great citrus scent, I felt that overall it made my skin more oily.
