I am a sucker for anything that smells fresh, unique, and delicious at the same time. From candles to air diffuser’s, fortunately for me, beauty products are no different. Don’t get me wrong, having sensitive and oily skin means I can’t always indulge in products that have an overwhelming smell, but Jurlique was a different story.
Summer blues are fast approaching, but having used Jurlique Rosewater Balancing mist all throughout the summer and for my holiday abroad, I can for the time being prolong the summery days and warm temperatures with the help of this fantastic facial mist!
Who is Jurlique and why should you care?
Well, for starters, their motto is to be appreciated:
“Our dream was to connect people back to nature. That connection…that’s the really important thing for us as human beings.”
Ulrike and her husband Dr Jurgen Klein were botanists and passionate believers that there was nothing more powerful than the healing power of the world around us. The beauty market is overcrowded, with products manufactured to perfection in the lab, and their vision was to create a pure and natural skin care range that would combine the essence of herbal medicine, alchemy and homeopathy to ensure those who use their range re-connected to nature. Moving from their native homeland of Germany, the duo found the unspoiled Adelaide Hills in South Australia, where their vision became a reality. Jurlique, is a combination of their names and today, their brand is sold in more than 19 countries worldwide. Their range compliments their vision to source the finest, purest and bio-dynamic natural ingredients to create a high-quality end product that is multi beneficial.
The Rosewater Balancing Mist and its benefits
I have heard about the benefits of rosewater, but never have I had the opportunity to try it. Often dubbed as a ‘miracle’ ingredient, rosewater is a concoction of miraculous powers. So when I was given the opportunity to try it, I was not hesitant. The first thing I noticed when using the mist, was how refreshing it was, during the height of the heat when on holiday; whether I was laying by the pool, or exploring the City streets. The mist hydrates and balances your complexion, without drying it out and naturally sets your makeup. You can apply the rosewater balancing mist before or after you have cleansed, though it is recommended to do so after. The mist helps prepare the skin for a maximum absorption of moisturisers and a foundation base. The balancing mist is made from rose essential oil, marshmallow and aloe to soften the skin, whilst the grapefruit seed extract is an antioxidant protector. What is so great about the product, is the ability to take it everywhere you go. It is not heavy, nor is it too large to take on board when flying – all you need is two to three spritz onto your face throughout the day for a quick pick-me-up. Using a mist can sometimes leave an oily residue, but Jurlique’s mist is quick-drying and non-sticky for a clean and refreshing look.
