My skincare routine has been staying pretty much the same for quite a while now, with only a few change-ups here and there depending on what my skin’s doing but one of the recent additions to the gang has been the Jurlique Antioxidant Cleansing Mousse*, which I was lucky enough to be sent for review, I quickly got to work trying it out and after using it for quite a few weeks now it’s time to weigh in on the results.
When I first read the words ‘foaming cleanser’ on the front of the bottle I was a little tentative. In the past, before I knew what I was doing when it came to skincare, foaming cleansers have wreaked havoc on my skin – drying it out completely and just generally giving me a bad time but this Jurlique one is different. It pumps out of the bottle like a mousse but when applied onto the face it turns from a white foam into a sort of oil that you massage into the skin before washing off with a face washer and that’s what makes the difference – my skin isn’t left feeling stripped of moisture, it feels refreshed and clean but there’s no tightness to my skin.
The packaging is lovely, as is all of the branding from the Jurlique range – all of the products simply look natural and good for your skin in their simplistic packaging (even my boyfriend likes visiting their stores because of their beautiful aesthetic). I find that one or two pumps of this gives me a really good thorough cleanse. I generally give my skin a quick once over and get rid of my eye makeup with micellar water before cleansing and then avoid getting the foam near my eyes, as it warns against on the bottle, I did it once and it can sting a little bit. This double cleansing makes sure my skin is spick and span (is that still a saying people use?) and it really doesn’t take up too much more time. The fragrance is light, it just smells vaguely herbal-ly, nothing synthetic or intrusive.
I’ve found that since I added this to my routine (I generally only use this at night even though it is suggested to use it twice daily) my skin has been behaving extremely well with only the occasional hormonal breakout on the chin and that’s seriously impressive, the redness that I normally experience particularly across my nose has gone down dramatically to the stage where there have been days where I’ve barely worn base make-up. To those of you that have had similar bad experiences with foaming cleansers this isn’t one to rule out just because it says the words ‘foaming cleanser’ on the front, I can imagine unless you have super duper dry skin you won’t have any problems with this cleanser and your skin might even thank you for the change up, like mine has.
Have you tried anything from Jurlique?
