It’s been a while since I found a product that I love so much it becomes a staple in my daily routine, but it’s easy to say that this little beauty is one of them. I’ve been after a new finishing powder for sometime, and have had my eye on this one for quite sometime. I’ve never tired Jurlique before but am a huge fan of rose scented products so it only seemed fitting that I give it a go!
The packaging of the entire range is beautiful, simple, sophisticated and clean. I love the matte cardboard they use for the boxes and the soft botanical photography to add a touch of feminity to the design. The main appeal for me with this finishing powder is the rose scent and that it also claims to balance skin, it’s more than just a typical finishing powder.
The compact is very good quality. A matte black lid with a gloss logo and a clear plastic tub. The lid has a sensible click close mechanism to keep things tidy and easy to store.
There’s a good sized mirror in there and a super soft applicator pad with the ribbon logo handle. You can use this to press powder on the skin in a rolling motion to disguise pores and fine lines. Alternatively, for a soft, lightweight coverage you can use a brush (I use a Clinique Bronzer Brush) to lightly dust to fix make up and balance shine and oil.
One of the reasons why this is a superior powder to others are the top quality ingredients. Most finishing powders and powder based products have a talc base, which can be drying on cakey on the skin. This powder is talc free and instead is a super fine, super silky formula, enriched with Arnica to soothe and cool the skin. Corn starch, rice starch and silican leave a smooth finish to the skin.
I love this product because it feels super lightweight and really does the job. It fixes make up in place all day with only the tiniest amount and leaves skin super soft with a airbrushed look and light rose scent. Truly delicious. Retailing at £24.50 it is a treat worth spending on.
Have you tried anything from Jurlique?
