It’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 SaffronRouge.com 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 SaffronRouge.com.
I’ve long been curious about Jurlique products. There were a few that I’ve wanted to try, but I’m trying to get by with less is more. I love product, but I’m trying to be less wasteful and of course, there’s the whole second child on the way that is forcing me to spend less money. But I got some Jurliqe samples and I can’t pass up a good sample. Samples will never go to waste in this house, because what I don’t use, I stuff in my toiletries bag for travel. A great way to travel light without giving up my girly luxuries.
I have to say, I’m impressed. I really like the Jurlique lotions. I tried out both the soothing day care lotion and the balancing day care cream and they both smell great and are heavy without being overly greasy. I tend to hate most lotions because the extra water means I have to use more to achieve the same results, but this is a great cream with a pleasant rosey smell.
I will say though, that not ALL of Jurlique’s products are free of the safe ingredients we like to avoid. Most of their lotions are LovelyMama worthy, but their shampoos and cleansers tend to have more unfavorable ingredients, so this is another case of learning to decipher the labels. But both of these lotions are great for night time and I can easily see these being a staple on my night stand. Especially with summer sandal season coming along. I can feel the softness already!
Get it: You can order any of the Jurlique line off of Saffron Rouge. Or find some products in your local Whole Foods.
