Regular readers may recall that Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist was the worthy winner of the Best Facial Spritzer category in the 2014 Skin Deep Beauty Awards so I thought it fitting that today's post would be a review of the natural skin saviour.
I adore the aesthetics of Jurlique packaging. The minimalist design and squared off glass bottle looks chic and not at all worthy, despite the eco credentials. Admittedly, the weighty glass bottle means that the mist remains on my desk for an effortless and refreshing hydration boost throughout the day as it's simply not functional for travel or carrying in my handbag.
On the subject of functionality, its worth noting that not all mists are created equal and I have to confess to being somewhat of a Goldilocks when it comes to seeking out a mist with the perfect spritz. Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist is "just right", delivering an even, fine spray that feels satisfyingly hydrating without leaving me looking drenched.
It has a delicate, sweet rose fragrance. I'm aware that some don't like the scent of roses, associating the flowers with old-fashioned, "granny" perfumes, however, I found it to be pleasant. The scent adds a hint of luxury and reiterates the inclusion of rosewater, renowned for its soothing properties.
It's difficult to say whether Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist has left my skin more balanced but it's such a joy to use that I spritz it throughout the day, including over makeup, boosting hydration levels (& with most of us citing dehydration as a skin concern, who doesn't want that?!).
At £24 for 100ml, Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist is an undeniably expensive facial spritzer although it does seem to last a reasonable amount of time. However, if you're looking to inject a sense of luxury into your day, I'd recommend it and have already repurchased.
