When it comes to shopping and that whole gift-getting thing (ie buying stuff that’s not for yourself, soz) – well, it’s simple enough, right? I mean, talk about a whole lotta panic over nothing, surely? Erm, nope. Wrong guys.
Jurlique Fresh Mist Trio
Unfortunately. You see, while shopping for myself really is just a walk in the park (if ya didn’t notice, ahem) – in reality, when it’s comes to buying for others? Well, that’s a-whole-nother board game. And, not an easy one. Not by a long shot. Whether it be a prezzie for someone ya barely know (like, when did Secret Santa ever become a good idea?) or a special-something-kinda treat for the nearest and dearest – it ain’t easy. None of it. So much choice, yet so much room for error. But with that big ol’ dilemma in mind, where d’ya start? Well, a gift set really ticks all the right boxes, I reckon. Especially of the skincare variety. And so, when I caught whiff of the #12DaysofGlow campaign offered up via the ever-incredible and all-natural Australian skincare brand that is Jurlique – well, that’s a serious no-brainer right there. But then, can you really blame me? With their revolutionary combo of nature and science, coupled with some seriously top-notch ingredients and more skin-loving buzzwords than you could shake a stick at – well, they’re right up there with the best of em. Literally. And this, a deliciously seasonal campaign focused solely around a handpicked selection of only their most completely-coveted and best-selling products, all bundled up in to the cutest little gift sets that you ever did see. In a word? Perfection. Thoughtful, indulgent and just that little bit luxurious – you’re on to a serious winner and then some. So, their FRESH MIST TRIO, containing no fewer than(yup, you guessed it) three of their oh-so-cult face mists?Well, to die for really.
Rosewater Balancing Mist
Okay. So I think it’s pretty safe to say that I’m all kinds of obsessed with the ROSEWATER BALANCING MIST already. We go way back. Seriously. In fact, those’ve you that have read around here before now will no doubt have heard all about this stuff. Many times. If not before. I mean, talk about versatile. And then of course, there’s that scent. Rose-candy-marshmallows, anyone? Uh, yes please. But full to the brim with all-natural ingredients including rose flower extract and marshmallow (yeah, really), as well as the likes of aloe-vera and grapefruit seed – that practically edible smell it throws out ain’t exactly surprisingly. Now, not only does this baby make the most perfectly hydrating and stunningly scented sidekick for any kinda double tone routine that ya have in mind, it’ll just work absolute wonders at setting the ol’ makeup face of a morning as well. Plumped? Yup. Soothed? Oh, completely. And with a positively glowing finish? All the way. Now trust me, I get that the thought of spraying any kinda liquid directly on to your freshly makeup-ed face does sound all kinds of terrifying. And you know what? It usually is. But honestly, with this one, you needn’t worry. Jurlique just have the whole thing down. When they say fine mist, they actually mean it – with it’s tiny nozzle (oo-er) allowing for an ever-so-light yet even deposit of product that’ll absorb in a matter of seconds but keep the whole face together all day long. And better still, if things are starting to look a bit on the sorry side in the makeup department come mid-afternoon (you with me?) – then a quick once-over misting with this stuff will go down an actual treat. Ah-mazing. Go, try it. I dare ya.
Lavender Hydrating Mist
Well now I gotta admit, the LAVENDER HYDRATING MIST, specifically targeted to address the more dry and dehydrated skin types may not necessarily have been the first thing I’d reach for myself. Oily skin probz and all. At least of course, until I knew the error of my ways. You see, while you might think that any kinda ‘hydration’ would be the last thing my oil-slick of a face would fancy (or even thank me for), when it comes down to it – oily or not, the ol’ skin does still need a drink every once in a while guys. Especially in the evenings, I reckon. And that, is exactly when I tend to beef things up in the moisture stakes – this stuff included. But hey, personal preference and all. If your skin can hack it, go crazy – morning and night. Not only that though, but the softly sweet and delicately gorgeous lavender scent it carries just makes the most perfect companion for bedtime too. Even if I do say so myself. But, packed full of natural antioxidant goodness – the oils and extract-thingys in this baby really do work wonders in injecting a little (loads) of hydration in to the mix. Like, insanely so. Yet despite all that hydration talk – it still somehow feels light as a feather once spritzed on and your skin’ll drink it up in no time. I mean, even my tricky complexion has been lapping this baby up. Softer, brighter.. and dare I say it, hydrated? Quite frankly, I’m smitten. Who ever thought it? Nah, me neither.
Citrus Purifying Mist
But then as if that little duo wasn’t quite enough for ya (it was me), we have the combo/oily offering of the bunch – enter, the CITRUS PURIFYING MIST. And just like that, I was all over it. Naturally. You see, if you know me – you’ll know that even the mere mention of any kinda oil-rebalancing-whatever is just music to my ears. And skin, obvs. Y’know, being hella oily and all, that is – anything promising to take even the slightest edge off my big grease-face is always worth a look-in in my books. And boy, these guys really do know their stuff. I mean, when it comes down to all-things-skincare – I just know I can count on Jurlique to drop only the very best of the best. So with those knockout ingredients and clever blends making an appearance once again (although this time, with the likes of citric and lemon essential oils kicking around to name just a few), it not only delivers up a beautifully energising and positively awakening fragrance (y’know, ideal morning pick-me-up material) – it really works to refine and refresh the ol’ complexion too. But all that, while providing a serious moisture hit along the way as well. We’re talkin’ hydrated, softened, fully revived. I hear that it’s just perfect for troublesome skintone and working to fight breakouts too if you need it. And you know what? After daily AM use, I reckon my chops might even appear ever-so-slightly less shiny by lunchtime too. And that, is what I call a success guys.
