For this post I’ve teamed up with Jurlique UK where I will be answering questions live on Periscope. The live Q&A takes place Thursday 25th February between 7-7.30 UK time. Please join us @JurliqueUK where I will be on board to answer your questions regarding the Celendula Redness Rescue range. You can submit your own questions on instagram or twitter, simply add #jurliquetalks for the team to pick out your question, the best one will win a prize (I believe this is only open to UK residents).

So, let me talk you through my first encounter with Jurlique. Whilst I hadn’t used any products from Jurlique in the past I do recall the brand as I’ve seen it in Selfridges and Space NK. I was sent the Calendula Redness Range which consists of three products – Calming Mist – Restorative Treatment Serum – Soothing Moisturising Cream. As the name suggests these products target anyone with sensitive skin, I was pleased to see the use of calendula which is an excellent natural anti-inflammatory.

The calming mist smells really good, I couldn’t quite work out the smell, juicy yet fresh but delicate, not too sweet. I’d describe it as grape and white tea but it’s actually fresh cucumber and chamomile. If you like to create a skincare ritual and layer your products then this will make a lovely addition but it’s certainly not an essential unless perhaps you have sunburn – then a refrigerated bottle of this would be ideal.

The restorative treatment serum is a great product for anyone with sensitive or irritated skin, it works well in combination with the moisturiser as it’s lightweight and absorbs quickly. It has a gel texture so distributes across the skin easily, I found 2 pumps enough, anymore and it might feel sticky. The soothing moisture cream is my favourite product in the range. My face needs a rich cream at this time of year and I’m impressed at how hydrating this product is. Avocado oil is what’s behind the hydration and chamomile will calm the skin alongside the calendula. I’ve been using the three products morning and night, I apply extra moisteriser at night which I love. I’m still using 1% retinol which I featured here so the calming elements of these products are a handy addition alongside the retinol.
