My Jurlique Skincare Routine!

I have the pleasure of trying out a lot of skin care products but Jurlique has become one of my favorite brands so far...So much so, that they are sort of my standard. It can be a bit jarring to my skin to change up routines too often, but duty calls, and I find myself swapping out products every 3 to 4 weeks. But now, instead of changing my day time AND night time routine, I just switch my night time products when I need to test something new, and my morning routine (and my skin, for the most part) stays consistent with these products from Jurlique...

I start with Jurlique's Balancing Foaming Cleanser. I love its fresh, but not overbearing scent. I also love that its a foaming cleanser (I prefer to use foams in the am and creams or scrubs in the pm) with a pump (makes it more sanitary). This cleanser is rich with calendula, daisy, and peppermint to help lift away surface impurities gently. It leaves my skin balanced and hydrated.

I follow the cleanser with Citrus Purifying Mist. If I'm feeling a little groggy (which I usually am), this is such a great pick me up. The scent is so bright and happy and when I need an extra little "howdy do", instead of spritzing the mist on a cotton round, I spray it directly on my face. It contains witch hazel, marshmallow, and tangerine and lemon essential oils to help perk up and purify the skin. I love that it is gentle enough for me to use any time, multiple times a day if I want. And I'm not gonna lie-I was instantly smitten with the packaging: between the spray and the heft of the chic frosted glass bottle, it is one of the prettiest products on my counter right now.

In the mornings, regardless of the season or the weather, I prefer to use a moisturizer with SPF. So the Purely Sun-Defying Moisturizer with SPF 15 Sunscreen is perfect for me. When it says high performance, its not kidding! I have oily/combination skin and it only takes a pea size amount to give my face the hydration it needs. It was designed to help improve firmness and reduce fine lines and wrinkles (with natural red sea algae), skin elasticity and smoothness (with buriti oil), and protect the skin from free radicals and external aggressors (with ectoin). It also helps to fade discoloration-it's truly a powerhouse in a tube.

Being the product junkie that I am, you have to know that the fact that I continue to use a product over and over again (especially when I have others to use), it has to be good stuff! If you're interested in trying out these products (or some similar picks) for yourself or to give as a gift, here is the perfect gift set...

I have a few more Jurlique products that I'm absolutely in love with; I use them occasionally as a part of my night time routine. But that's another post for another time. Have you had a chance to try anything from your Jurlique? How often do you change up your skin care regimen? Do you do the same thing day and night or do you switch it up? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Until next time...


  1. The packaging for these products is just beautiful! I tend to favor Neutrogena everything for my skin, but these items sound incredible! :)

    1. Seriously, the package is so luxe! It makes me feel so grown up and chic whenever I use it! Lol. It's funny the little details that suck me in :)


I love to hear from you, so leave a comment, question, or suggestion and stay tuned because I WILL respond! xoxo...
