Yesterday evening I headed over to the Jurlique New York City Flagship boutique for my first blogging event where myself and fellow beauty enthusiasts learned about Jurlique. Most of you may have heard of Jurlique before as you can find their products at Sephora. The Australian skincare brand emphasizes the importance of natural ingredients and eco-friendly production methods. Many of the ingredients, such as rose petals, are grown at Jurlique's farm in South Australia.
The event focused on three main collections and products. The first was the new Rose Moisture Plus line which is meant to hydrate the skin and protect it from the harsh environment. The scent of all the products in this line is absolutely divine. Jurlique's rose scent is sophisticated and pleasant without coming across as a strong fragrance. The Rosewater Balancing Mist was very refreshing and the first thing that came to mind was the similarity to the heavily hyped Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I have not tried either for an extended period of time so I can't say if they're similar products but in theory they seem to be comparable.
The Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Gel Mask was another product that we were introduced to. I was very excited to learn more about this product as I have been searching for a hydrating facial treatment. This gel mask is unique in that small capsules of vitamin E are suspended in the gel formula which are supposed to nourish the skin further.
The Purely Bright line intrigued me because Jurlique claims that using this regimen will even out the skin in 30 days. I must say I am a bit skeptical of high and lofty claims like these but who knows, maybe it does work! I tried the Purely Bright Radiance Serum on the back of my hand and I loved how easily the formula absorbed into my skin.
Besides discovering the many products that Jurlique offers, I was also ecstatic because I had the chance to meet some other bloggers! Here I am with Cydia and Wing who you might recognize from Youtube. I also met Jessica and Alice who were incredibly nice as well. I rarely get to talk about beauty products with people in real life so the event was a great chance to chat with other ladies who love skincare and makeup as much as I do!
At the end of the evening Jurlique sent us all home with goodie bags containing some of the products that we tried in store.
I can't wait to try out the products and I will be doing reviews for each of the items after I have had sufficient time to assess them. I want to use up some of my current skincare items before delving in the Jurlique products so I probably won't be reviewing these too soon.
Based on the information from the event and speaking to the Jurlique representatives, I have high hopes for the products and I am eager to see how my skin responds to them. If you have never tried Jurlique, I would urge you to go into a Sephora or freestanding store to just smell the products even if you are not looking to change your skincare routine because the scents are really nice.
As a little bonus for my followers, if you spend over $50 on the Jurlique website and enter the code JUNEROSE at checkout, a deluxe sample of the Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream will be added to your cart! This offer expires at the end of the month.
