As promised, here is my review for the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum. Prepare to board the rave train. I am obsessed with this product. Actually, that's an understatement, but I can't fathom a more appropriate word to use. It has recently been reformulated, and its predecessor, the Herbal Recovery Gel has been discontinued. What am I doing with an anti-aging serum I here you ask? Well, I think Jurlique have marketed this completely wrong, instead it should be called overall skin miracle serum rather than a youth defence serum!
The main difference in this re-formulation is the addition of what Jurlique calls “Naturadiance PB18+” this is a combination of 15 botanical extracts + three breakthrough ingredients. The ingredient which gets me interested is the Niacinamide (not natural at all), which is an essential ingredient for anti-aging and clearing acne. Jurlique ran some trials, and the result was 100% of women saw a difference in their skin. At first I was sceptical but…
Ermigawd this works. I have noticed such a difference in my skin with this serum. I had one line across my forehead that was worrying me just the tiniest bit, and it's gone now. You know those small pimples that just sit under the skin without a head? Almost gone. I brought this about 5 weeks ago and my skin has never looked better! I still get the odd pimple, but they are about half the size and are popping up not as often. I need less makeup, some days I can get away with just a mineral powder. My skin is so moisturised and clear, this is an absolute staple in both my morning and evening skincare routines. A HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT.
The HRAS retails for $75 in Australia for 30mls, there is also a larger size of your interested. I had a store credit of $30 so I used that to buy it, I probably wouldn't have brought it at the full price to start with, but I know I will be repurchasing this for many years to come. It can be found at Myers, David Jones and the Jurlique Stores (duhhh) and selected pharmacies nationwide. Visit a Jurlique store for a sample, they are more than happy to give them out - you'll thank me later!
