Beauty Find: Jurlique Makes Citrus Work For Your Skin

“Biodynamic” might not be the first word that comes to mind when you think about skin care. But it’s one you’ll want to get acquainted with, as it’s the driving force behind the dynamite skin care offerings from Jurlique.

The brand uses high quality, organically grown ingredients (such as black elder and daisy) in its products, with the goal of improving clients’ skin in the most natural manner possible. Jurlique’s philosophy? “Nature trumps chemistry every time”, and it’s so true. I found this out for myself when I tried the company’s line of citrus products.

I’ll admit to being a little apprehensive about trying the Citrus Purifying Mist ($21). My skin, while mostly clear, is super-sensitive. But one spray was all it took to get addicted. Its marshmallow, witch hazel, and aloe vera extracts work to tone, calm (yes, calm!), and clarify the skin. The scent (lemon and tangerine) is so energizing and delicious that it’s become a morning staple.

Bookending my morning skin care ritual is the Citrus Silk Finishing Powder ($36). Designed to control oiliness and rebalance the skin, I can feel it tightening my face after I dust it on, and my skin feels smoother and more primed for makeup after I use it. (I prefer using a powder brush to the puff, and it’s translucent enough to use as a setting powder, too.) One caveat: I can’t speak to its oil control properties, as my skin tends to be drier.

Rounding out the collection is the Citrus Hand Cream ($25). It’s thick and rich – so thick and rich that, when I laced my fingers together and stretched my arms over my head a couple minutes after applying it, I couldn’t keep my hands from slipping apart. It’s sitting on my desk at work – I handle a lot of documents, and a good hand cream is essential for avoiding paper cuts. Plus, the signature citrus scent is the perfect sharp-smelling pick-me-up during midday slumps.
