The Jurlique x SkinStore Limited Edition Beauty Box
This box comes with a booklet explaining the products and a little more about the Jurlique brand.
You know when you were a kid and your parents made you keep busy with school activities and clubs? Well while my peers were playing varsity soccer, cheering, or in choir, I was the president of our school’s rose club. I was also our only member. I love roses.
Next stop: ROSE CITY.
I love a skincare company with their own farm!
For over 30 years, we have grown powerful ingredients on our organic farm in South Australia, free from synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers.
Every ingredient we grow at our Jurlique Farm is renowned for addressing specific skin care concerns and our unique process unlocks the most powerful qualities of Nature to grow, harvest and extract the concentrated botanicals we use in our products. Each ingredient, is uniquely designed to enhance skin’s natural radiant glow, under any condition, for any age or environment.
I liked this feature with a Jurlique expert, who made personal recommendations about their products.
The booklet finished up with some additional info on their Herbal Recovery Signature Collection. I now want all of it.
We have arrived at the rose garden. Let’s dive in!
This little tube of hand cream is the perfect size for my purse. It smells of pure roses but doesn’t overshadow my perfume. It is a great formula for winter as it is heavier, but not greasy or oily.
Rose Moisture Plus Lotion, 1.7 fl oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $45.50
This moisturizer has a much more reserved scent than the other rose products in this box. It actually smells quite a lot like black tea! It is very lightweight and has quite the pedigreed list of ingredients such as rose hip oil, honey, beeswax, and shea butter. I applied it under my makeup (I usually skip a primer) and everything set just fine on top and stayed in place all day. My skin looked very hydrated and dewy. This is not heavy enough for me to use at night with my dry skin, but during the day it is a winner in my book.
Rosewater Balancing Mist, 3.3 fl oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $38.00
Toners are admittedly the one skin care step that I often neglect unless it is the height of summer and I have been storing them in my fridge to beat the heat. They are important because they add hydration and therefore allow you to use less product after application, which saves mad $$$. Toners are the unspoken all-stars of your routine! This one is pure roses and moisture. It is super refreshing and you can fake a super dewy look by lightly spraying it on top of your finished makeup look
Nutri Define Superior Retexturising Facial Serum, 0.17 fl oz – Estimated Value $22.10 (Buy the Full-Size 1 oz for $130.00)
I cannot hit my pillow without a serum on my face. At some point after hitting 30, I became convinced that without serum, I would immediately turn into a wrinkly hag woman who looked like an old leather bag. This is probably only partially true, but I am always on the lookout for my next favorite serum. Although this is one I would never be able to afford, I appreciate this little sample. While it is small, a little serum goes a long way, especially if you try an essence before application (more on that further down). This serum promises big things and has reviews to back it up. I hope to have lost a few years from my face by the end of this tube. Do I look 21 yet?
Rose Body Oil, 3.3 fl oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $48.00
I love body oils but they generally just make a huge mess because so much product comes out once you tip it to grab some. This bottle has an essential oil style dropper, which means only a few drops come our readily and you have to be a little more patient. This is genius. No longer do I have to fear an entire handful of oil when all I wanted were those few drops. This oil smells like in your freaking face roses and I am totally here for it. I like to use it right out of the shower on my arms and legs and find that even though this oil is rich, it absorbs pretty quickly if I am thoroughly towel dried. This ultra-hydrating oil gets its powers from a blend of safflower oil, macadamia seed oil, and jojoba oil. These oil all stars are the perfect blend to showcase the rose scent without interfering with it.
Essences are one of my new skincare obsessions. Until this year I had never even heard of them in any meaningful way, much less tried any. I am currently using the Amore Pacific Vintage Single Extract Essence from my Amore Pacific Limited Edition Glossy Box and I love it because it is a great calming step before I apply serum and then moisturizer. Gotta find those extra steps to give your skin even more hydration and make it even softer! It is also a step in your skincare routine that helps the products you apply after absorb better. I actually need less serum and moisturizer after using an essence because my skin is already hydrated and ready. I am down for anything that extends the life of my expensive products. I hope that I like this freshly scented essence just as much!
The Verdict: This box was a rose lovers dream. If you don’t like roses, well… I had never tried any Jurlique products and so far I am more than impressed. Each of these products is exquisite, and I cannot wait to test their might against my dry winter complexion. I am not sharing a single bit of this box with anyone, and I feel zero guilt. My favorite items would have to be the essence, the balancing mist, and the body oil, though picking favorites was extremely difficult. This box also boasts an astounding estimated $164.26 value. For a $55 box, that is great! Even though it may be a cold cold winter, I will be sitting here glowing and smelling like spring.
