I’ll be the first to say that there are two things that I hold close to my heart. One of those things is nature and the other is Australia, which is exactly why I have such a soft spot for this brand. Let’s face it, nature has been a primary source of beauty products and cosmetic treatments for centuries. But this practice has changed over the years when it became a “standard practice” to have beauty products produced in a laboratory. In recent years, however, we have seen a change in that practice and an emergence of many more brands producing natural products omitting those synthetic ingredients.
One of the brands that I’m referring to is known as the Jurlique Skin brand. This brand produces organic, natural skin treatments that find their roots in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia. Founded by the Klien couple, the Jurlique Skin has an amazing story behind it and even more interesting products. Here I’ll share part of their story and basic reviews of their most popular or best-selling skin products.
Jurlique Company Details
What on earth does this mean? Well, for those curious, Jurlique is an amalgamation of the names Jurgen and Ulrike Klein, the couple that founded the brand. This German couple consists of two very well-informed individuals. One of them is a biochemist and the other a botanist, together they were in search of the cleanest soil, freshest air, and the best natural ingredients to restore the health and beauty of consumer’s skin.
They found exactly what they were looking for in Adelaide Hills located in South Australia, as it’s one of the cleanest, untouched places on Earth. They established a farm where they grow most of the plants necessary for producing the ingredients in their products. After lots of effort in the development and manufacturing process, they now produce a wide range of products and sell them in more than 19 countries around the world.
As I said before, Jurlique’s dream was to connect people back to nature via the natural/organic products they provide consumers with ingredients that mainly are grown on their farm in South Australia.
The ingredients in their products are incorporated to treat skin issues and there are no established unique proprietary formulas so to speak. All ingredients are good for your skin. The botanical extracts are derived from plants grown organically and responsibly on their own farm. They’ve omitted pesticide use, herbicides or artificial fertilizers from the growing equation.
Every product contains natural ingredients and plant extracts like rose, macadamia nut oil, safflower oil, Kakadu plum extract, African birch bark extract, yarrow extract, viola tricolor extract, calendula extract, lavender extract, peppermint extract, and more. You can find all the ingredients for each product on the individual dedicated pages seen on their official website.
The Jurlique skin care products are specifically designed to work on the skin (obviously) but they’re meant to be applied to target specific skin issues. You can browse through the products and pick out what you need/want according to skin issues like slowing the aging process, brightening of dark spots, hydration, oil control, sun protection and more.
Below you’ll find a hand-picked selection of a few of their bestsellers. Take the time to learn about them before jumping the gun and making a purchase.
Rose Hand Cream
One of the bestselling Jurlique products, the Rose Hand Cream is a hand cream rich in texture. It’s made with rose extract that has an amazing soothing fragrance as well as powerful hydrating properties. Then there’s the macadamia oil which helps deliver the essential fatty acids which we all know restore your skin back to health and help it retain high moisture levels. The safflower oil nourishes the skin, smoothing out any wrinkles that may be present. It’s also got soothing properties.
Activating Water Essence
This Essence hydrates the skin, revitalizing it as it softens. The product should be applied before using any serum and/or moisturizer for the full hydrating effect. You’ll find main active ingredients such as marshmallow root extract which has deep hydrating properties, calendula extract (this has anti-oxidation properties) along with important natural acids which aid in soothing those with sensitive skin issues. The peach leaf extract helps improve the tone of the skin, making your skin glow and wrinkles disappear.
Nutri-Define Superior Retexturising Facial Serum
This facial serum was designed to help smooth out those deep wrinkles, lines, and ultimately improve the loss of elasticity and lastly, fix that sagging skin. It contains high concentrations of licorice root and ginseng root extracts which help firm the skin, boost collagen production and deeply hydrate your dry skin. The consistent use of this product helps people make their skin softer and noticeably smoother. If you didn’t know already, we’re huge fans of facial serums in general, so perhaps you should give this one a shot.
Rosewater Balancing Mist
This is a “daily” product that brings the necessary hydration levels to those dealing with normal and combination skin. It’s made with marshmallow root extract (lots of hydrating properties), aloe vera (calming and balancing) and rose (hydration galore) and by the way, it’s amazing.
Lavender Hand Cream
Perhaps one of the most popular essential oils of today, this rich hand cream is made with a lavender extract. That lavender extract helps hydrate and restore your skin. You’ll likely notice nothing but the smoothness of the skin on your hands if used properly. The skin is left feeling supple and soft and the calming scent of lavender has a nice soothing effect.
The Jurlique products are well-liked by consumers purchasing natural skin care products today. A quick look online and you’ll notice that nearly all of the reviews are positive with regards to the hand creams, especially the Rose Hand Cream which is a consumer favorite. The satisfied users report that this cream has a rich texture, is easily absorbed into the skin, not leaving any greasy residue or unpleasant feel, and that it has a lovely rose scent.
The natural, organic ingredients paired with the relatively affordable prices make Jurlique’s product line very appealing to most. If you’re looking to make adjustments to your current skin care regimen, then you should definitely look into the Jurlique products. They work like a charm, no doubt about that!
