From time to time Jurlique sends me a lovely box of products to try out and review. I’m not compensated in any way other than the free products and my opinions are my own. I’ve been using these products for a couple months so that I could give a fair assessment.
The Herbal Recovery Gel is a smooth, light serum. Cool and slippery, it absorbs easily. The pleasant floral scent dissipates quickly leaving skin feeling clean, nourished and balanced. I like this product so much that it will permanently replace my old serum. It’s a luxury product at $140, although they offer a smaller size for $50.
Purely Bright Day Moisturizer is for everyday use and should lighten dark spots if used for an extended period of time. I didn’t notice any lightening effects, but really enjoy this lotion. I wish it had an SPF, so I could use it all summer long. The lightweight, non-greasy formula is $48.
The counterpart for evening is the Purely Bright Night Moisturizer. Overnight moisturizers can be too heavy for me. It’s important to hydrate at night, but there’s nothing worse than waking up with an oily face. This is light enough for me to tolerate, and that might be partly due to method of application. For all of Jurlique’s moisturizers, they recommend warming a small amount of products between your fingers and lightly pressing it into the skin. It’s a technique that I’ve come to love. Not only is it gentle, but it stretches your precious product. At $52, I’d like this one to last.
I’m a sucker for masks. It’s the perfect way to de-stress and feel a little pampered at home. The Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Gel Mask is a clear, light gel that gives a nice hydration boost. It gives a bit of a cooling sensation, and of all the products in this review, this feels the most spa-like to me. $48 buys a large tube that will last a very long time, even with frequent use.
The Purely Age-Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream is supposed to provide noticeable resulting in tightness and line reduction right away. I can tell you when I use it I feel firmer. I don’t know if I’m quite old enough for this product just yet, although it’s very nice. The jar is heavy glass and it feels and smells expensive. Firming products can cost a fortune, so I think the $70 for this one is actually a bargain. A little goes a long way and this far will last forever.
I’m a big fan of Jurlique’s extensive line. The luxury products are packaged simply and I appreciate the metal tubes that don’t allow air to contaminate the products. Do you have any favorite Jurlique products?
