Jurlique Purely White, Love Balm, Eye Makeup Remover and Purifying Mask

jurlique11

Welcome to my collaboration post on many Jurlique products I have been testing out lately! If you are not familiar with Jurlique, you should be! They are an Australian Spa grade Skincare brand with bio dynamically grown ingredients! With scents and extracts that will remind you of a  walking through lush floral garden, Jurlique is a true skincare experience. Let’s begin…

Jurlique Purely White Moisturizers and Serum

The Jurlique Purely White Range of products are designed for people with concerns such as hyper pigmentation, dull complexion and premature aging. With key ingredients such as Vitamin C rich Kakadu Plum, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract and Hyaluronic acid the skin is infused with antioxidant and complexion brightening ingredients! I used the Purely Bright Serum, Day and Night moisturizer, for 3 weeks and noticed some great results!

The Purely White Radiance serum was a light weight serum gel that absorbed into the skin in seconds. It made my skin very soft without any residue.

The Purely White day and night moisturizer were incredibly lightweight and left my skin hydrated but matte to the touch! Although recommended for All skin types, I feel they are better suited for a normal/combination or oily skin. The smell is a classic Jurlique floral scent with a slight undertone of licorice. The combined ingredients left my skin smooth and bright. I do not have any serious pigmentation problems so I cannot say I noticed a decrease in pigmentation, but my overall radiance was noticeable and my redness was diffused.

Key Ingredients in the Purely White Products :

Hyaluronic Acid- Improves hydration and gives a plump appearance to the skin.

Kakadu Plum Extract– helps to reduce the appearance of pigmentation or any skin discolorations.

Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract– helps to inhibit melanin synthesis and fade existing pigmentation.

African Birch Extract– Antioxidant with skin firming qualities.

Vitamin C – Antioxidant known to help even skin tone.

Love Balm

The Jurlique Love Balm is one of those simple yet can’t live without products. A multipurpose balm that works wonders on chapped elbows, lips, hands and cuticles, or anywhere that needs a little TLC. I use the Love Balm mostly for my cuticles and lips, and is something I always have on hand… literally!

Key Ingredients in the Jurlique Love Balm:

Olive Oil, Safflower Seed Oil and Beeswax– Moisture and smoothing of the skin

Vitamin E and Soybean Oil–  Hydration and Antioxidant Protection

Bisabolol– Soothe the skin and help reduce redness or irritation

Jurlique Eye Makeup Remover

The Jurlique Eye Makeup remover is a lotion based remover that is so gentle and effective at removing makeup. I really adore this Makeup remover as it easily removes my makeup without any residue or irritation to my skin or eyes. The lotion texture allows me to either massage into my skin and eyes with my finger tips, or remove using a cotton round. Although it is marketed as an eye makeup remover, I find this product equally as effective for my face makeup, as well! It deeply nourishes and protects my skin and instead of pulling on my skin as I usually do with other makeup removers, the Jurlique eye makeup remover is so effortless it practically melts off the makeup.

Key Ingredients in the Jurlique Eye Makeup Remover:

Jojoba Oil:  Protects and Hydrates skin

Sunflower Seed Oil: Deeply hydrating and smoothing

Dandelion and Calendula Extracts: Soothe irritation and protect fragile skin

Jurlique Purifying Mask

The Jurlique Purifying mask is an awesome mask that helps to tighten pores, control oil and lift away impurities. This Clay based mask is great for those breakout prone times or when the skin is feeling congested. I noticed instantly a more refined and purified complexion, with even just one use of the mask! My pores were tighter and my skin felt clean!!! I used the mask 6 times and noticed that it really helped keep my complexion clear of blemishes. This mask also has a manual exfoliation property so it can act as your weekly exfoliant and mask, bonus!

Key Ingredients in the Purifying Mask:

Kaolin Clay: Purifies complexion and absorbs excess oil

Almond, Oats and Oat Bran: Gentle manual exfoliation

Vitamin E and C: Antioxidant skin brighteners

Chamomile Extract and Allantoin: Soothing, anti inflammatory as well as hydrating

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum

jurliqe logo

Many women seem to neglect and overlook the importance of detail in their beauty care routine. Most of us realize that we must have a clean and moisturized face for optimal facial beauty, but what about our neck and decollete…? One of the first places you can detect a woman’s skin health and age is in her face and neck; so why do we wait until we have creppyness, dryness, age spots and lack of firmness in our neck area, to begin to do something about it? Prevention-Is-Key.  I asked myself this question, and despite still being in my 20’s with little to none of the above concerns, when given the opportunity to be proactive and try something, I thought, what the heck! I am really glad I did!

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum is a beautiful anti-aging, hydrating neck serum packed with LOADS of skin repairing, nurturing ingredients. So even if you are not in dire need of anti aging on the neck area (yet), you are giving your neck and decollete a fighting chance to maintain its youthful firmness for as long as possible! If you already have major neck and decollete concerns, this product is going to help you tremendously with the repair of these concerns, and you will see a difference! The reason I can strongly say this? A  fellow, more mature skin specialist and I were both given one to try, she does have the above mentioned neck/decollete concerns, and she gave a rave review (not surprising with the quality of ingredients).

Jurlique Neck

As I said before, this serum is packed full of great skin loving ingredients and antioxidants. Avocado, Jojoba and Evening Primrose oil for smoothing and nourishing, Gingko Biloba and Vitamin C for amazing antioxidant and skin brightening/firming, Soybean Protein for firming, Carrot Seed extract- rich in Natural Vitamin A for anti wrinkle and firmness, Licorice Root Extract for pigmentation lightening! WOW ME LIKEY that! The ingredients found in Jurlique products are all Biodynamic, Organic and Natural, which makes them even more potent and effective.

LIQUIDneckserum

With my use of the serum, I noticed an incredible boost of softness and hydration. I typically have little patches of eczema, especially in the winter months, under my chin and on my neck. I was pleasantly surprised that within a week of using the serum, my little dry patches were smooth and undetectable. I did notice that my little natural gobble chin was also less gobbly, which was a great surprise. I absolutely adored the lightweight texture and how quickly the serum absorbed, as I do not particularly enjoy the feeling of something on my neck. The scent of the product is quite different, herbal and licorice. If you do not like these types of scents, do not fret, it dissipates withing 15 minutes.
My co Skin specialist, noticed an amazing improvement in the texture, hydration and firmness of her neck area/ decollete area. In a few words she said “It does the trick!”

So for any of you looking for a preventative measure to maintain the youth of your neck or decollete, or those of you that already have major concerns, the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Neck Serum is for you.

Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder

jurliquepowder
This will be my first kind-of makeup review. I begin with Jurlique, a company from Australia that makes wonderful natural skincare with bio dynamically grown ingredients. The Jurlique Rose Silk finishing powder is essentially a translucent face powder. What makes this product unique and really great is the fact that it is infused with tons of skin nourishing ingredients, such as Witch Hazel, Calendula, Daisy flower and glycerin etc. Therefore it is more of a skincare product than a makeup.

I used this product in 3 different ways. The first was underneath my powder mineral foundation, over top my moisturizer and liquid foundation. I usually use a translucent powder underneath my mineral foundation to ensure I have no excess oil that may change the color of the foundation or make it cakey. I used the Jurlique Rose Finishing powder as such and noticed immediately how softened my complexion appeared. It is so finely milled and feels so soft, my complexion was totally airbrushed, I did not even need my mineral powder foundation over top! After I did apply my mineral foundation, it looked flawless, actually! My complexion was radiant for the entire day, and it did not give me a totally matte look, which I am happy about. I secondly tried it underneath my mineral foundation and over top. This result was more matte than the first, obviously, because I applied it twice. I also found that my makeup was literally untouched 12 hours in, I typically see fading in 6-8hrs, so that was a pleasant surprise! Lastly, I applied it simply on its own for my day off face (almost no makeup, except for the necessities so people don’t think I am ill) and it was perfect! Right overtop of my moisturizer, it diffused pore size, redness and took away all shine. It also kept my skin fresh looking for almost the entire day. I will recommend not to over apply because although it is translucent, if you over do it you will have a slight white residue.

The container is also wonderful especially if you want to throw it in the purse for touch ups, and comes with a high quality pouf! You can use a big round brush to apply too. As an added bonus,  it has lavender and rose essential oil, so it smells delicious for an overall beautiful experience.
