Staffer Tested & Approved: Jurlique Skin Care Products

There’s a lot to love about Jurlique Skin Care. We broke it down for you with some of our favorite products.

Jurlique is natural skin care that WORKS. The notion is as simple as their philosophy, nature+science=beauty. But that’s just one of the reasons that we can’t get enough of this incredible beauty brand. Jurlique is the Exclusive Skin Care Sponsor this Spa Week, so our staff had the pleasure of testing a range of the brands beloved products—everything from the new launches to the tried-and-true favorites.

Purely Age-Defying Facial Serum

11df558c-5139-4adf-93b9-f4eecc5717cd

“I love how this serum leaves my skin feeling softer and more hydrated, without causing it to become oily. I have combination skin, so this is always a concern, but this product is light and absorbs quickly. Once you start using you can really see a difference in hydration within the first week! The serum pairs well with the moisturizer counterpart, Purely Age-Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream. Plus it smells great, which is a nice pick-me-up in my morning beauty routine!” -Kaitlin, Spa Week Senior Account Manager

Purely Bright Eye Correcting Cream and Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturising Cream

“I have been a fan of Jurlique for years, and my adoration only grows each time I try a new product (and it doesn’t hurt that my soul mate Leonardio DiCaprio uses the products as well). This spring I had the luxury of trying Jurlique’s newest launches, The Purely Bright Eye Correcting Cream and Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturising Cream. The Purely Bright Eye Correcting Cream has truly been a revelation in my life. As a beauty junkie who is constantly looking to try new things I have to admit, I often have trouble sticking it out with products that take a bit of time to garner results. This time though, I started to notice a difference sooner rather than later and have continued to dab a drop of this light cream under my eyes every morning and evening for the past two months. I can honestly say that my under-eyes and my bags and dark circles have gone from very bothersome to barely noticeable! I have used the Calendula Redness Rescue Cream as a spot treatment not just on my face, but anywhere on my body that I notice redness. It is a thicker cream that as someone who breaks out easily I’d be a little weary of using as a daily moisturizer, but I love how it works quickly to alleviate any irritation I notice. Two thumbs up for both products!” –Arielle, Spa Week Daily Associate Editor

Rose Hand Cream

“I love this rich hand cream. The rose smell is delightful and the lotion really absorbs well. Especially with the harsh winter, this product kept my hands looking and feeling great. I love Jurlique’s focus on natural ingredients–this cream is formulated with not only rose oil but also honey and calendula.” – Brynn, Spa Week Account Manager

Purely Age-Defying Firming Treatment Mask

“I was first introduced to the sheet mask craze a few years ago when they were fresh on the beauty scene and I’ve been hooked ever since. A convenient, individually wrapped facial that I can take anywhere with me AND manage to scare the crap out of anyone in my view? Umm, yes please! Although you may look like Jason Vorhees for 15 minutes, it’s all worth it—which is why I was super excited to try Jurlique’s version of this trend. The Purely Age-Defying Treatment Mask is a wonderful compliment to your nightly routine. After cleansing your face, apply the mask, relax, and open your eyes 10-15 minutes later to firmer, hydrated and overall more radiant skin. Who knew that natural ingredients like Kudzu Root Extract, Vitamin C, Beech Tree Bud Extract and Willow Bark Extract could help improve skin tone, reduce wrinkles and exfoliate? Well, now you know. They’re especially beneficial for helping to nurture skin back to health after a long winter.” –Kelly, Spa Week Public Relations Director

Lavender Body Care Lotion

 4b4a0e2b-a0c7-4d25-b22d-1b1ec3612653

“I really love this lotion! It’s super light and leaves my skin feeling naturally hydrated without that greasy or heavy feeling that other lotions have. My skin is hydrated all day long and has the most intoxicating light fragrance of lavender. Definitely a must try!” – Melissa, Spa Week Director of Travel Marketing

Purely Age-Defying Ultra Firm and Lift Cream

d31dddb1-9891-4fdd-bad2-3fb5cadf661d

“I have been using this product for about 2 months, each evening before bedtime. My skin is totally hydrated and has more elasticity as well.  Did I mention it also smells amazing?  Bonus! Jurlique products rock!” – Breanna, Spa Week Director of Corporate Gift Sales
