Jurlique’s Embrace Graceful Ageing Workshop at Marionnaud

I got a text from Marionnaud last week and since I was on leave last October 16 (Friday), I decided to drop by Marionnaud in SM Mall of Asia to attend the Jurlique’s Embrace Graceful Ageing Workshop. I was one of the earliest who came in so while waiting, the staff of Jurlique gave me a very relaxing 20 minute facial. During this facial, the staff talked about a little background about the Jurlique products.

Jurlique is an Australian brand that creates skin care products out of organically grown ingredients using Biodynamic farming. Their products are quite expensive, but because of its ingredients, the price is worth it.Photo Credit: www.jurlique.com.au

Even before this workshop, I was able to try Jurlique’s Lavender Hydrating Mist in Greenbelt 5. I love this mist as it is not only very refreshing but the scent is very uplifting as well. Not to mention the fact that I am a big fan of all things lavender. It has hydrating properties so I can use it as a toner cum moisturizer. It can also set makeup just like Evian Facial Mist. The only con I can see with this product is its bottle because it looks heavy and fragile.

Another stuff I love in Jurlique’s product line-up is their Citrus Silk Finishing Powder. After the express facial they did on me, the staff put this powder to set everything. The workshop started at 2pm and I went home at around 8pm. Still, I didn’t see any shine on my face, even on my stubborn T-zone. So this gets a thumps up from me! The powder is super fine that it looks almost similar to Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Powder (which I’ve been lemming to have). The finish is very true to its name, so silky.

After the workshop, I was given a loot bag with three sample sachets of other Jurlique products: Balancing Day Cream, Balancing Foaming Cleanser and Rose Hand Cream. Of the three, I was only able to try the Balancing Day Cream yet. I’ll post a review of the other two products soon.
Jurlique’s Balancing Day Cream has a very thick, creamy consistency. It indeed hydrates your skin. Although in the mid-afternoon, I feel that my T-zone is starting to get some sheen on it. So if you are oily, this one is not for you. I think this one is for people with normal and combination skin types. The scent though is very nice and sweet. It reminds me of The Body Shop’s Shea Body Butter. It also brightened my face that I have to put more in my neck so as not to make my décolletage look darker. For me, even though it’s a Day Cream, I’d rather use this at night to soothe my skin and replenish its lost moisture during the day.

The Jurlique people was generous enough that they even entitled every participant to a hand massage. There, I was able to try the Lavender Hand Cream. I love love love lavender. It made my hand soft and smooth without feeling greasy. This one adds up to my list of favorite Jurlique products.
With this, I was able to justify why their products are a bit expensive as their products are of good quality and deliver nice results.
