Hope all you guys are doing great! This one, again, comes from my honeymoon shopping! I picked this up on our trip at Royal Caribbean cruise. It is a ‘Skin Balancing’ facial oil by Jurlique. I had come across this brand earlier as well, but it never caught my eye. On my visit to the cruise, this brand specifically caught my interest when I studied their philosophy as it sort of met with my philosophy as well and I was sold. I had never tried any products from this brand earlier, but with my love for facial oils and my dry skin made me pick up their ‘Skin Balancing Facial oil’. When tried from a tester, it made my hands so soft and moisturised that I had to buy it, imagining my skin will feel and look the same.
Jurlique is an Australian brand whose philosophy is as follows:
“Our vision was to formulate and manufacture the purest skin care products available based on the healing properties of nature and to inspire people to health and wellbeing… Jurlique was driven by this vision. We did not follow a trend, we were trendsetters.” Ulrike Klein (Source: Jurlique website)
This lightweight yet deeply nourishing treatment oil is rich in nourishing Safflower Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Avocado Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil and Shea Butter. It helps address the signs of moisture loss and uneven skin texture, while protecting your skin from environmental irritants.
This treatment oil with previous emollients including Safflower, Rose Hip, Avocado and Macadamia Oils and Shea Butter is designed to deeply moisturise and help restore suppleness and elasticity, while Vitamin E (Tocopherol) helps protect against environmental aggressors. Skin feels hydrated, smooth and silky and looks radiant.
$ 50, but I think I paid $ 60 (Price you have to pay on international waters?! :/ )
My Experience with Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil:
It’s been almost 3 months since I’m using Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil. It is a very light weight oil that seeps right into your skin, giving it a good dose of moisture. It definitely can be heavy if you use too much, so ensure that you use only a few drops (2-3 should be fine considering its summers) and press it into your skin. It is advised to use only once a day; hence, I chose to add this oil in my night routine.
I have been getting up with soft and supple skin every morning. My skin really feels very soft and smooth to touch. Even in this Mumbai humidity, it really helps my skin stay supple since I sleep in an air conditioned room.
Their claim to reduce uneven skin tone did not work on me! I didn’t see any improvement in my skin tone as such. May be it might take a long time to see results, but then except for rose hip oil, I do not notice any ingredient specifically that might help in evening my skin tone out. No complaints as such since I still love how this facial oil balances the moisture and keeps my skin soft and supple.
Packaging: It comes in a nice amber coloured glass bottle with a built in dropper. Perfect for the product and it controls the amount you need with every use. Amber coloured bottle helps in restoring the potency of the ingredients from the sun.
Fragrance: It smells sort of nothing in particular. No strong smell as such just a slight regular smell of oils. I don’t think this would bother any nose.
Pros of Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil:
• All natural ingredients.
• Highly rich and moisturising.
• Makes skin soft and supple.
• Amazing for dry skinned beauties.
• Makes your skin look really healthy and hence, radiant.
• You don’t need a lot of product. Hence, it will last you a long way.
• Will be your best friend for winters.
• Very convenient packaging.
Cons of Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil:
• Does not work on uneven skin tone, as claimed.
• Can be too heavy if applied in excess.
Would I Repurchase Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil?
Umm… I like this facial oil a lot. But, since this will last me quite some time, I would want to put my hands on another facial oil by the time this one gets finished. 😀 As a brand yes, I would love to try other products they have to offer.
Would I Recommend Jurlique Skin Balancing Face Oil?
Yes, if you have dry and dull skin that needs intense moisture and suppleness, this product is for you. Oily skinned beauties can skip this, since it might not do much for the price you have to pay.
Have a great week ahead… see you soon.
