During the steamy hot peak days of summer, I’ll do anything for a respite! All too often, my face thirsts for some refreshment, which I’ve discovered in Jurlique’s Rosewater Balancing Mist. The light mist restores, tones (so much easier than applying toner the old fashioned way!), and hydrates. A few spritzes are akin to going from hot humidity walking into a delicious cool foggy mist; the relief and restoration are immediate! I love the light rose scent which lingers for a few moments as the balancing mist hydrates my complexion. On a typical day, I’ll use the mist at least once midday, but if I’m going to be running from lunch to appointments, I’ll tuck it into my purse for a quick refresher on-the-go. It’s amazing what a difference a few seconds of misting can do both for the senses while creating a fresh and dewey visage. I’m pretty liberal with my spritzing, since there’s so much good stuff packed into each pump: rose oil softens, balances, and restores, while marshmallow extract hydrates and rebalances. Aloe, skin’s natural best friend used for centuries, provides beneficial polysaccharides and amino acids to soothe and calm. Of course, there are no worries about irritants such as parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, or petro-chemicals.
A perfect follow up in the evenings to a misting or cleansing is the Rose Moisture Plus with Antioxidant Complex Moisturizing Cream. It’s not too heavy for summer, but the cream is richly packed with plant oils and an antioxidant complex to combat dehydrations while delaying premature aging. After use, my skin feels silky soft and smooth, and the hydration lasts for hours. Rose Hip Oil is the secret ingredient which skin drinks up for hydration, and it also provides protection against free radicals. Green Tea, Grapeseed and Turmeric Extracts provide powerful antioxidants properties, while Avocado, Safflower and Jojoba Oils hydrate, soften and smooth. The Jurlique duo is perfect for summer refreshment, and the lingering sweet scent will let you slow down and smell the roses!
