I have been doing some work with Jurlique lately and they were kind enough to give me lots of product after the shoot. So I took a break from my usual skincare to give it a try.
This is a brand that has been around for more than 25 yrs and prides itself on using natural, biodynamic and organic products sourced from all over the world in their products. They operate their own 153 acre farm using the techniques of biodynamic farming.
I met the head of Product Development in the US, RIchard Pietz, he was in his late 40's and his skin was flawless ! He said that he had been using Jurlique for years. So I guess he is a testament to its effectiveness.
My favourites of the ranges they gave me are ...... Soothing Herbal Recovery Gel for it's lightness on the skin . It's a serum so it doesn't feel heavy. This one is for all skin types.
Purely Age Defying Ultra Firm and Lift cream . I used this over the Herbal Recovery Gel and it felt hydrated without feeling heavy on my skin also. Again all skin types.
Balancing Cleansing Lotion. This one was really nice as it wasn't greasy when you massaged it into your skin and when you rinsed it off the skin felt clean and soft.
And this one turned out to be my favourite , Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Gel Mask. It has these strange white beads in the gel that you massage into your skin as you put the mask on. They are meant to release Vit E into the skin apparently . I left the mask on for half an hour instead of 10 mins (not sure if that's good or bad!) . When I rinsed it off my skin felt sooo smooth and it looked really radiant AND it still looked that way the next morning when I woke up. Will definitely keep up a supply of this one.
Their products are available worldwide and their website has a list of all their stockists.
