Review: Jurlique Picks.

A quick post about a couple of my recent favourites. I love the idea of natural products especially organic and those containing lots of antioxidants (which prevent damage from harmful free radicals). (Note: I'm not entirely convinced about products which are paraben free as I know first hand that cosmetics need preservatives in order to have a reasonable shelf life and to stay free of microbes.)
Jurlique are a skincare brand which use naturally-sourced ingredients in their products. I've tried the Rose Hand Cream and also the Rose Lip Balm and had to post about them.
The scent in both is gorgeous, not overpowering but quite a fresh, natural smell of roses (ie not that synthetic smell that some products have). The hand cream isn't at all greasy and the smell lingers just long enough in my opinion. It's the perfect size for travelling too.

The lip balm has the same clean scent, and has now become my "go to" lip product. It's very light, I may have mentioned before I only ever use Chapstick on my lips because I don't like the feel of anything heavy or greasy. Jurlique lip balm is my current favourite because it's extremely moisturising without having that heavy feeling like Vaseline or Carmex, which I personally can't stand. I put my Jurlique lip balm on in the morning whilst doing my makeup and it has my dry lips sorted by the time I'm done, ready and prepped for lipstick.
A definitely new favourite of mine, and I highly recommend! Any other Jurlique products I should check out?


  1. Oh I do love Jurlique's Rose hand cream, the packaging is understated but luxurious too!

  3. Never even heard of them - But now I'm curious about that lip balm - Is it tinted or anything at all? x

  4. Yum, LOVE Rose flavoured things! x

  5. I've never heard of these products before either, they sound lovely though, especially the lip balm :) x

  6. Never heard of this brand before, I'm definitely going to give them a go now though, I love rose scented products, and I'm not a big fan of heavy sticky lip balms either. Thanks for a lovely post x
