Looking for a little winter skincare and some pampering? Then you’ll want to become familiar with Jurlique’s new skincare line to help sooth the skin and eliminate redness: Calendula Redness Rescue. Jurlique is an Australian line of organic skin products. My Australian friend Fiona introduced me to the secret of Jurlique before it was widely available in the US. Now you can find Jurlique in Whole Foods, PHARMACA and Sephora. Their new line to help calm the skin and eliminate redness is based on Calendula flower extract. I was privileged to try the new products at the Jurlique Spa this week in Santa Monica, CA. Read on to learn more about the wonders of Calendula and enter to win a gift bag with these healing products.Calendula flowers from the Jurlique farm (photo courtesy of Jurlique.)
If you haven’t heard of the flower Calendula, you may be more familiar with it as the Marigold flower. The oil from these flowers has long been used to treat inflammation and wounds. So it makes sense that Calendula extract would work on the skin to reduce redness. However, the Jurlique line of Calendula products has more that the Calendula extracts. The Jurlique Comfort Complex is fortified with chamomile, echinacea, self heal, spilanthes and marshmallow extracts. Clearly, these products are chock full of great ingredients. However, the scent of the products and it’s calming properties is another benefit. The products have a light scent that resembles a mix of orange and cucumber. The line consists of these three products:
Calendula Redness Rescue Calming Mist: A refreshing mist featuring extracts of aloe and linseed, rich in beneficial polysaccharides and amino acids. This is a very soothing scent, especially if you are feeling stressed. I like this spritzed onto the face or even sprayed onto the pillow before sleep.
Calendula Redness Rescue Restorative Treatment Serum: This light, clear serum is designed to step up your epidermal defenses and help reduce redness. One of the ingredients in the serum, prickly pear, provides a natural protective barrier from environmental aggressors. This light serum can reduce redness if used consistently. Immediately, you’ll notice that the serum is mosturizing and provides hydration.
Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturizing Cream: This hydrating cream offers more than Calendula extract. It also contains pure plant oils like Evening Primrose, Macadameia, Rose Hip plus Avocado, perfect ingredients to replenish dry winter skin.
Because most of us are experiencing extraordinarily cold dry weather this season, I thought it might be a treat to giveaway all three of the Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue products to one lucky reader. This skincare package is worth over $140.00 US retail. So, take advantage of this opportunity to treat yourself! You deserve some pampering.
