jurliqueIt’s been quiet here… I’ve been on a maternity leave.  But in my absence I had time to fall in love with a new product.  With all the talk of flu season and H1N1 this fall I’ve opted to start washing my hands neurotically.  I have a kid in preschool and a 3 month old at home so needless to say, I’m trying to avoid it.  All that hand washing is drying my hands out something fierce.  I had a sample of Jurlique’s Rose Hand Cream and gave it a go on my chapped mitts.  Oh. Em. Gee.

I immediately ordered a full size tube because this is one of the most luxurious hand creams I have ever experienced.  Even in comparison to some of the chemical versions I used to be loyal to.  If it were a dessert, it would be a creme brulee at the Four Seasons.  Some feel that rose scents are old lady-ish and I can see how that can happen.  But for me, this light floral rose scent is sexy and feminine without overpowering you.  Most importantly, the softness.  This hand cream makes your hands feel so incredibly soft and smooth.  I keep it next to me on my nightstand where my most elite products live.  There is no stickiness and it absorbs well without leaving a greasy feeling.  I just applied it and am happily typing away on my laptop without slipping off the keys.  DId I mention soft?  My hands are soooooo soft.

Jurlique grows 95% of their pure plant-based ingredients on their certified organic and biodynamic farms in Southern Australia.  Not every single product is 100% natural but the Rose Hand Cream passes our test.  A handful of their products that pass our test are available on who’s goal is to provide the purest most natural products possible.  We trust their screening process more than we trust our own.

Get It: Jurlique’s products aren’t cheap.  The Rose Hand Cream runs about $25 for a 1.4 oz tube.  But its an indulgence worth the splurge.  FInd the Jurlique Rose Hand Cream and other Jurlique products on
