I remember Jurlique as the lovely smelling store, in the top floor of a local mall (MidValley Megamall). Whenever I walked past, I’d be sure to pause, take a huge sniff of the lovely smell of essential oils wafting out the front door, and then go on my way feeling that little bit more relaxed. I had a facial there once too. But it was a long time ago.
When I was recently reintroduced to the brand, my first observation was the change in packaging. It used to look a little utilitarian before with a plain white and blue colour scheme, but the new packaging looks much more palatable. The Balancing Foaming Cleanser, for one, sports an opaque pump bottle with a good pump that dispenses just the right amount of gel cleanser each time. You don’t need too much of this one.
Jurlique is an Australian brand that uses primarily botanical ingredients in their products where possible. Their products use extracts of plants and essential oils and here’s the interesting bit. Not everything may smell great. This facial cleanser for example, takes some getting used to.
