JURLIQUE | #12DaysOfGlow | DAY 4
I really cannot believe it is December already and we are getting closer and closer to Christmas! Have you all sorted out your Christmas presents and of course your wish lists?
I received the perfect Christmas gifts from Jurlique already and yes, I am so sorry, I opened them before the big day!
I didn't know much about Jurlique before, I've heard friends talk about it, I've seen some of their products in Space NK... I've used their Facial Mist Sprays before and I came across their Advanced Serum which works a treat. Today, I want to let you find out more about my Jurlique experience and how I get my #JurliqueGlow.
Let me introduce you to #12DaysOfGlow.
Jurlique's Christmas sets this year are focusing on the #JURLIQUEGLOW. Who doesn't want their skin to glow? It's winter, it's almost Christmas, we are hardly getting any sun, we're losing that summer tan but that doesn't mean we don't have the right to have glowy and supple skin.
The #12DaysOfGlow is a campaign between Jurlique and 12 bloggers showing you how we achieve the #JurliqueGlow.
If you have never come across Jurlique's products, let me quickly tell you a bit about them. As with most brands, Jurlique offers products for all skin types and all skin concerns. The skincare lines include, sensitive skin, hydration, calendula, rose and many more, but today I want to talk about the Herbal Recovery collection.
Since I have given birth to my son, I feel like my skin is ageing quite a bit faster than before, of course, lack of sleep, late nights, stress and hormones are something to do with it, but I know age is also a factor. I am only 24, but I know that it is never too late to start preventing ageing from happening to the body, or the skin. I've been using "anti-ageing" or "age-prevention" skincare products for a few years now but I've never really switched to another brand because I'm scared my skin won't like it.
I am very impressed with Jurlique's choice of products and am very grateful they offered to send me out some products to try. We were given a list of gift sets to choose from, and there was no doubt about it, my eyes were immediately drawn towards the Herbal Recovery option.

Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Gel Mask
Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum
Herbal Recovery Advanced Eye Serum
This Trio Set above is, in my opinion, the perfect saviour for my skin. My skin works especially well with serums and I love masks like there's no tomorrow, so I couldn't say no to this trio at all.
Other than the fact that the Herbal Recovery range can help age-prevention, one of my favourite things about the products is the scent. I am such a weakling when it comes to great scents, especially floral, so these being lavender literally killed me, I was sold before even testing the products!
Product Code : HRM
I love masks, from facial sheet masks to a clay mask. However, my first ever mask was a gel mask but this Antioxidant Gel Mask works wonders. The mask itself is a gel, obviously, and it looks a bit like the serums with very small antioxidant beads (they look like microbeads) which help to gently exfoliate the face.
I have started a "mask series" on my blog which will be a collection of reviews on the masks that I use/have used, this product will have a more "full review" very soon, so watch out for it!
I'm currently in Hong Kong and I haven't yet got used to the wind over here, or the water. Obviously I cleanse my face and apply the same skincare as usual, but the water I use to wash my face comes straight from the tap, but it takes time for my skin to adapt to the change. This mask has helped me a lot, I apply it and leave it on for 10 minutes at night before bed and I wake up all refreshed and hydrated. I am so glad I brought this along with me. Not only that, it's just a tube and the bonus? It's 100ml, just right for an in-flight liquid. Although, I do only use a facial sheet mask on the plane as it is much more convenient.
Product Code : HRES
Let me to quickly tell you what I don't like about this serum, this and the Advanced Serum... The packaging. I don't like how it is in a glass bottle? It makes the product so heavy which meant that I couldn't actually bring it to Hong Kong with me, because every little fraction of a KG builds up my luggage allowance.
Other than that, I like it, I do prefer the Advanced Serum as it works with my skin, this eye serum doesn't seem to do all that much for my eyes. However, I assume it will improve in the long run.
As with most eye creams, gels and serums, you would obviously expect or hope that they will help to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. I have found that this eye serum does help to radiate the areas around my eyes a bit, but only a bit.
I apply the product with my ring fingers, around the areas that need most attention, always remember to try and avoid using your face moisturiser around your eye area, stick to an eye focused product. Why the ring fingers? They're your weakest fingers, as you don't need to be applying anything around your eye area with force - rubbing to hard can also make nasty lines appear.
Yet again, I love how this product smells but I find if I use it in the day time, I feel quite drowsy, lavender really does send me to sleep.
Product Code : HRAS
30ml £45 / 100ml £90
Now, onto the Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum, this has got to be my favourite Jurlique product at the moment, I love how smooth the application is and I especially love how little you need to use at one time.
With some products, it seems as though one pump just doesn't seem enough. Yet, I could probably use a pump of the Advanced Serum and still have some left to spare! I can definitely tell you that my #JurliqueGlow is down to this product, as soon as I apply it, I feel and see a difference. My skin feels lifted, hydrated, smooth and of course, radiant.
I apply this in the morning as soon as I have cleansed, it's the perfect product for a hungover face, you look so much more wide awake, it deceives people! I also use this product at night before I sleep and I can see the difference as soon as I wake up. However, at night, I do apply it a little more generously as I know my face and neck will have more time to gently and thoroughly absorb and enjoy the product.
If I could recommend any skincare product to you, Jurlique's Advanced Serum will definitely be nearer to the top of the list! The pricing on this product is reasonable, if it works for you of course. You might be able to ask for a sample at one of their main stores or beauty counters and give it a go yourself - TRY BEFORE YOU BUY! I have a 15ml sample bottle which is great for travelling and this 30ml bottle at home, it may seem so little but it lasts a very long time.
I still have a few products (box on right) I would like to introduce to you, so I will be reviewing them as soon as I am back home in the UK.
I would like to take this chance to say a very big grateful thank you to Jurlique for picking me as one of your 12 bloggers, I am truthfully honoured to be part of the #12DaysOfGlow.
If any of you have any questions about skincare in general or if you want to ask about a Jurlique product/recommendation, I am happy to help! Just leave me a comment below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Thank you for visiting JYUKIMI.COM and I hope you don't just get #12DaysOfGlow, I wish you a lifetime of the #JurliqueGlow.
Have a merry Christmas and I wish you all the best for the new year.
