Jurlique Body Exfoliating Gel - REVIEW

16:42 Pamper Point 2 Comments

Exfoliators are some of the most effective beauty products you can use on your body. Depending on the skin type or personal preference you can choose from sugar based scrubs, salt srubs, scrubs with ground nut shells, coffee bean scrubs etc. The benefits of using scrubs regularly are endless, from cleansing, boosting circulation in the body to removing dead skin cells for more effective skin reneval process. 

 This Jurlique Body Exfoliating Gel  may be the perfect find if you are looking for:

A. Scrub with ground walnut shell powder as a buffing ingredient
B. Scrub with coarser texture
C. Scrub that has powerful cleansing properties
D. Scrub that will help rebalance oily patches on your body, like back or decolette area (Witch Hazel, Rosemary, Tea Tree Extracts and Lemon Balm)
E. Scrub that will invigorate your senses (herby, citrusy natural scent)
F. Scrub with array of naturally derived plant extracts and oils (Green Tea Extract, Lavender Extract, Witch Hazel Extract, Turmeric Extract, Carrot Root Extract, Nettle Extract, Avocado Oil)


My experience with Jurlique Exfoliating Gel:

Although description on Jurlique website says "Gentle", I would categorise it as "Medium Rough" due to its walnut shell powder base (shell powder won't dissolve in contact with water, therefore its exfoliating action lasts until you totally  rinse it away with water). My skin received rejuvenating massage which I really enjoyed. The gel like product spreads easily on contact even with dry skin, which helps reach full benefits of exfoliation. After rinsing the product off, I felt slight warming sensation on my body and the skin was softer to the touch and smoother. I haven't experienced any hydrating though and no protective layer from natural oils was formed. 

I liked this Exfoliating Gel  mainly for its circulation improving powers but I wouldn't  buy this again as I am not a  fan of overpowering citrusy scents mixed up with woody notes.(this is how I perceived it).

Also, Jurlique listed Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate in ingredient list which is a chemical preservative that may cause irritations if the amount is more than 0.1% . PEG 7 is another synthetic acting as an emulsifier which can potentially contain toxins from manufacturing process and reduce your skin's natural moisture factor. Please see the full list below:

  1. Julique is a funny brand because they have some products with some ingredients which I do not approve of, I certainly don't class it as natural more free from but of course that's my personal opinion :-)

  2. I totally agree, I am only starting to discover natural beauty world. It is a very exciting venture so far, with many brands all natural, "half-natural", or just free from as you suggested. Thank you for your comment. :-)
