Body Potions for Silky, Radiant Skin
Although Jurlique has amazing spas all around the globe, it’s as easy to have the indulgent Jurlique spa experience at home with a selection of their amazing skin prep products. Using certified organic farming methods, their botanicals have been grown and handpicked from their own Australian farm for the last 30 years to create beautiful and clinically-proven cosmetics like the Rosewater Balancing Mist.
The Rosewater Balancing Mist is a hit of hydration where it matters most – your face. Restore skin’s radiance, refresh makeup, and protect from external aggressors with this rose-scented and extracted mist. It’s the perfect morning ritual, a mid-day pick-me-up, and evening calm, and smells amazing too. Don’t be shy, spritz a few times over your holiday hair strands to add in a lovely scent.
Before the day begins, make sure to be appropriately hydrated from the start with the Activating Water Essence. This essential skin and holiday hair prep product will leave your skin smoother, softer, and healthier-looking from the inside out. It’s not just a moisturizer, but actually activates the skin’s ability to retain its own moisture.
When it is the time to moisturize, Jurlique’s Nutri-Define Supreme Restorative Light Cream moisturizes and softens the skin with intense hydration, but also reduces the signs of aging. It’s perfect for all skin types, but with its active youth-restoring botanicals and Biosome6 technology, it reduces the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles for those who have them, leaving skin looking smoother, noticeably firmer, and youthful.
Hands are another area that needs hydration. The Fragrant Rose Hand Cream is a no-brainer for deep hand moisturizing. With all the wear our hands get, they need plenty of nourishment and protection. The Rose Gallica Flower Extract is incredibly indulgent but also delivers an intense and velvety soft hydration. Skin will feel softer, instantly hydrated, and everyone will notice an improvement in your skin’s smoothness at those holiday parties; if they aren’t enamored by your gorgeous holiday hair locks.
When the parties are over and it’s time to relax, the Softening Shower Gel Rose will gently clean off those fun times with its soap-free gel, in a luxurious rose scent. Like everything Jurlique creates, it’s free of harsh chemicals but rich in pure organic botanicals grown in South Australia. With so many wonderful products, you’ll want to revamp your entire beauty regime to match your holiday hair highlights and styles.
