The Jurlique story
Dr Jürgen Klein, a biochemist, and his wife Ulrike, a botanist, had always been passionate believers in the healing power of nature. Their vision was to create a pure and natural skin care range combining the ancient arts of alchemy, herbal medicine and homeopathy to reconnect people to nature. But this was back in the 1980s, when beauty products came from the lab, not the land. The Kleins were undeterred. They refused to be swayed from their belief that nothing manufactured could come close to what nature could provide when it came to truly healthy, beautiful skin. So they began their search for the purest place on earth and after searching the world, they discovered the unspoiled Adelaide Hills in South Australia. They left their native Germany and the lives they knew behind, and set off to the other side of the world. Here the Klein’s found the pristine land they needed to establish their farm and grow their pure and potent ingredients. They decided to call their new brand “Jurlique” – a combination of both their first names . Today, Jurlique products are sold in more than 19 countries around the world. And our most iconic natural ingredients are still grown in the Adelaide Hills where Jurlique first began.
Rosewater Balancing Mist 24$
A daily hydrating mist for normal to combination skin with the scent of roses that restores and hydrates the complexion.
Perfect add on to any skin care regimen. I love using it in the morning to refresh the skin especially during winter when I weak up with dry parched skin from the indoor heating. Great for during the day even over your makeup whenever you need to soothe the skin and add extra hydration. Ladies who workout (or even gents) throw this into your gym bag for post workout refreshment. Gently shake and mist over your face with your eyes closed. If you are looking for your skin to glow but it has been a challenge due to harsh climate or simply you have dry skin this mist will be your new best friend. Does your makeup look to matte and caked up? Spray the mist over it and it will give you instant glow and will get rid of that dry caked up powdery look.
Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream Mask 42$
This rich, deeply hydrating treatment mask helps improve skin’s moisture levels for dehydrated and dry skin.
Out of the whole Rose collection this is the product that really stood out for me. It is thick reach and creamy, spreads easily. I apply it on freshly cleansed skin and leave for about 10 minutes. It rinses out easily but I like to remove it with cotton pads damped with the warm water. It leaves skin moisturized and soft but to my surprise it also does amazing job retexturizing the skin. Uneven skin texture appeared less prominent, smoother to the touch , pores looked smaller. This is the winner for me!!
Rose Hand Cream 25$
A rich, protective hand cream with the relaxing scent of rose to restore smoothness and keep skin looking youthful.
My biggest struggle when it comes to dry skin are my hands. And it has been like that since I was little. In the wintertime it gets especially bad. Now you can add to that housework and often washing my hands around my two little kids. Rose hand comes in a sleek tube and it’s perfect to toss it in your (makeup) bag to apply it even when on the go. It absorbs fast and doesn’t leave any residue. I love rubbing a bit more product into my cuticles.
Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream
A rich, high-performance cream for dehydrated skin that provides the dual benefits of hydration and antioxidant protection.
Rose moisture plus cream has a lush rich texture but to my surprise it absorbed almost immediately. Or my skin is maybe that dehydrated that it needed desperately all the moisture and antioxidant benefits this cream offers. To those concerned about the scent it is very lightweight rose, like a young soft rose scent but it goes away soon after applied and I do not think you would be bothered (the same goes for the whole collection). This can be used morning and evening – this is when I like doing a bit thicker layer after spraying Rosewater balancing mist.
Rose Body Oil Limited Edition 72$
This deluxe edition of our bestselling body oil is a delightful festive indulgence. Rich in the pure Roses grown and extracted at our Jurlique Farm to leave skin feeling beautifully soft and smooth.
Lightweight yet nourishing body oil in this holiday limited edition is the best treat for your (dry) skin. Warm up the small amount between the palms and apply to damp skin after taking a bath (or a shower). Your skin will thank you. It leaves skin glowy, moisturized, toned and you will smell like the most beautiful rose bouquet. And roses provide more than just a pretty smell. Rose essential oil reduces redness caused by inflamed capillaries, improves skin texture, provides antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits, and has even been shown to lower levels of cortisol, a stress hormone. It can be also used as a massage oil . Go ahead treat yourself you deserve it!
Overall big thumbs up for the brand and the story behind it as well as for all the products I had a chance to test and enjoy them – they are gentle yet effective. Jurlique products can be found at http://www.jurlique.com/ and http://www.sephora.com/jurlique
