I recently tested Jurlique Balancing Foaming Cleanser—lucky for me! Jurlique is an Australian company that has been around for over 25 years working to create skin care that is organic and biodynamic, as well as pure and powerful skin care. They operate on a biodynamic farm (Biodynamic, in case you are wondering, “is a method of organic farming that emphasizes the holistic development of interrelationships of the soil, plants and animals as a self-sustaining system” according to Wikipedia), which makes this product line really interesting and unique—and a “must try.”
I decided to try something different with testing Jurlique Balancing Foaming Cleanser…
Each fall, when the air begins to cool and dry out I get this annoying little patch of skin on the left side of my chin that gets red, splotchy and rash like. One of the benefits that the Jurlique Balancing Foaming Cleanser offers is its complexion balancing formula. So, I thought, “Just what I need to get this annoying, little patch of skin cleared up!” I used it for the month of September, and then I stopped using it at the beginning of October to see what would happen to that area of my skin.
In September it completely cleared up, and it stayed clear up until last week (2nd week of October), when the unsightly red skin patch made its charming appearance again! I had been using the cleanser once a day, at night before bed. Everything else in my routine has stayed the exact same…so I have to give the credit to Jurlique Balancing Foaming Cleanser for actually balancing my complexion just as it claimed it would!
Some of the other benefits of using this cleanser are that it helps improve skin’s firmness and reduce visible signs of aging, and provides intense hydration and antioxidant protection. It utilizes the living energy of calendula, daisy and peppermint to gently wash away surface impurities. Other wonderful ingredients include Ginseng Root (which helps firm the skin) and Rosehip Oil (which helps restore the skin’s radiance). Vitamins E, C, and Ginkgo Biloba protect and restore skin, and Marshmallow is used as an ingredient to soften sooth the skin. AND it is made without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, and phthalates.
The scent is very unique and subtle—it smells very natural and refreshing. It also foams up nicely with a little bit of water, which I love in a cleanser. After using it my skin feels soft and smooth, not tight and dry like it does with other cleansers. I am also very pleased with the complexion balancing results. I am dying to start using it again, now that my little experiment is over! And, with the fantastic list of ingredients and the list of ingredients that it is NOT made with it’s another wonderful organic option you can feel good about using to not only benefit your skin, but to keep you healthy. Plus, knowing that the farming techniques being used are not only creating amazing, natural, safe, pure and effective skin care products, but are also working in harmony with soil, plants and animals is a huge extra that you don’t typically find in a skin care line!
Overall I highly recommend Jurlique Balancing Foaming Cleanser, especially if your skin is dry and sensitive like mine. I look forward to trying some of the other great products Jurlique makes, including a Replenishing Foaming Cleanser, a Purifying Foaming Cleanser, and a Smoothing Foaming Cleanser all of which you can find on their Web site: jurlique.com
