Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum

Just recently I ran out of my Manuka Doctor Age-Defying Serum, and despite being happy with it, I have been dying to try some of the products from Jurlique.  Having walked past the chemist in Warragul for a while and seen the display for their 'Nutri-Define Superior Retexturising Facial Serum' in the window, I finally went in for a look.  However, at $145 a bottle I just couldn't do it (!), but having a good look at their products I spied this...
.... the 'Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum', which is a youth defence active gel concentrate, and being aware that I'd just run out of my previous serum I knew that it was fate.  Ok, so maybe it wasn't fate, but I just had to give it a try.
 
For starters it smells gorgeous, with the initial scent coming through being a lovely sweet rose.  You only need a little bit, with 1 to 2 pumps onto your fingers only delivering a tiny amount, then it smooths well over the face.  I really like that Jurlique is an Australian company, it is a leader in natural skin care and their ingredients come from their farm here in Australia.
It is an anti-ageing product with hydration benefits, and claims to help reduce the appearance of fine lines.  It also says it will increase elasticity, restore radiance, increase hydration and has antioxidants to protect you against the harsh environment.  Having only had it a short while it is yet to prove itself, but so far I am pretty confident in it's abilities.  It is, however, lovely to use. 
 
Do you use a serum?  If so, which one do you like?

  3. I had a sample of this in my Look Fantastic Beauty Box a while back and it was really lovely on my skin and it gave me hydration whilst keeping my skin soft, but I hated the scent of it. That kind of herbal scent is not to my liking and it was so strong x

    1. Hi Alina. What a pity that the scent put you off. Isn't it interesting that different scents are nice to some people but horrible to others! Maybe it was your noses way of telling you that some of the ingredients weren't suited to you?? I have a friend who hates the taste of tomatoes..which is fine..because he's allergic to them! Maybe it's a similar thing!! x

  9. Sounds promising. What does it contain? I'm currently loving (and have been for a long, long time) Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Serum.

    1. Hi! I haven't heard of that brand at all. It does sound great. Anything that is going to boost moisture sounds awesome! Just having a look at the bottle now and it's not giving me a list of ingredients. It does say it has 18 botanical extracts, vitamins and essential fatty acids. Jurlique is a natural brand, there was a big list on the box but I'm away this weekend...and I think it's in my bin at home! x
