Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist and Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Lotion Review

I’ve always thought of Australia’s Jurlique as the pioneer of natural skincare, but I had no idea that the company has been around for over 30 years! Unlike many brands who hawk “natural” products that are anything but, Jurlique is the real deal. Their powerful formulas are not just botanically-based…they actually grow the ingredients on their farm in the “unspoiled Adelaide Hills” of South Australia.

The standout ingredient is the fragrant Rosa gallica rose. I’ve been experiencing a duo of Jurlique’s rosewater-based skincare, and these products are a total mind/body experience. Roses don’t just smell heavenly; as a skincare ingredient, they provide hydration, protection and increased radiance to the skin.

I’ve tried other rosewater-based facial mists, but none offered the total sensory pampering of Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist ($38, 100ml). This daily hydrating mist for normal to combination skin hydrates and lifts the skin as well as my spirits! The scent is so natural, I like to close my eyes and imagine myself walking through a big field of roses, sunshine on my face. You might be laughing at my flowery prose, but just one spritz and you’ll be doing the same goofy thing!

Besides roses, the mist contains Marshmallow Root Extract, which offers hydration, softening and overall balanced complexion; and Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, famous for its calming and healing properties. This mist can be reapplied throughout the day… and if you’re like me, you’ll be misting all day long!

As much as I love the Rosewater Balancing Mist, the other product I used is even more nurturing to my skin. Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Lotion ($44, 50ml) is a creamy, rosy miracle. Just a little dab helps protect skin from environmental damage while softening and moisturizing. Full of the same heavenly Rosa gallica Roses as the mist, the Moisturising Lotion also contains Rose Hip Oil, rich in essential fatty acids for deep hydration; and Turmeric Root Extract, an antioxidant power player that reduces glaring signs of aging such as dark spots.

The moisturizer protects skin from environmental damage. It absorbs quickly and leaves behind the happy scent of roses. Think of how soft a rose petal feels… that’s what a regimen of Jurlique can do for our skin.

    I’ve really been drawn to products that use roses as an ingredient lately–it seems like a lot of brands are remembering why people have used roses in skincare and beauty for probably forever. I don’t think I’ve met a Jurlique product I didn’t like, so I’ll be checking this out! Great post, @turboterp!
