I use the Face Wash Cream after steaming with the Lime/Lemon Concentrate and it works unbelievably well to unclog pores, revitalise the face, gently but effectively exfoliate, and leaves me with a really beautiful glow. I am very glad I tried this again and am more glad that I now cleanse only with Jurlique thanks to a Chanel breakout that took five months to fix. I am back to not wearing foundation because my skin's that good. I'm really, REALLY happy and although the Face Wash Cream is a little expensive, good skin is priceless (for me anyway). UPDATE OCTOBER 2006: I still like it but it is really getting quite expensive and I'm using a chemical exfoliant now which is much better. I'd rebuy though if I felt like I needed a bit of pampering. UPDATE JUNE 2007: Ok, I'm off the AHAs now and use the homemade Face Wash Cream/Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream, which can be found on carekate's notepad, and which works just as well as, if not better than, Jurlique- and it's way cheaper! I think the whole pressing and rolling routine is extremely relaxing and this technique is half the reason why it works so well. If I wasn't so into concocting my own skincare I'd go back to the Jurlique FWC in a heartbeat.
I've always loved skincare regimes with lots of steps. That means I get to use more products, which means more fun in the mornings, and more reasons to get out of bed to make myself bee-u-tee-ful! I'm vain. I admit it. OK, back to the product review... Jurlique's Face Wash Cream is step numero three in it's skincare program. It's a gentle scrub, a mixture of natural grainy bits in a cream base. You're meant to turn the cream into a paste with wet hands, then press the paste onto your face gently. How's that ever gonna work? Having used microdemabrasion products before, I'm rather ruthless with this Face Wash Cream, scrubbing, rather than pressing, to get the maximum exfoliating effect. It's actually quite lovely, but if you are an exfoliating freak like me, maybe sit this one out. Use sand paper instead (hee hee hee). Despite its lack of exfoliating power (IMO), it does smell delish, and it will give you that Jurlique glow. Two thumbs up! Reference: Oily/Combo skin
I LOVE this product. It has noticeably helped with blackheads and leaves my skin feeling all glowy and fresh and smooth (I have normal to dry skin with slightly oily T-zone). I am very impressed by how gentle it is. I didnt think it would do anything at first cos the particles were so soft but it really works. I have tried low end facial scrubs without this effect (usually they are too harsh and drying). This is the first expensive scrub I have tried and I dont think I will need to look for another one. By the way I love the oaty/sesame smell and look forward to my nightly cleansing ritual with it. Also I have not combined it yet with the Jurlique's AHC. I am not sure whether it is worth spending on another product when it works so well by itself.
A miracle! I couldn't live without this. When left neglected my skin gets dry and flaky and then oil builds up underneath and gets all congested. This keeps my skin feeling soft and clean and hydrated. It also works well with the AHC.
It is so soft and indulgent to use and so effective.
I have found that the Jurlique skincare is amazing! Every time my skin starts to get dull or congested- I reach for my Jurlique products. I've made the decision that I'm not going to stray from what works any longer! The face wash cream does a great deep pore wash. I have only used it in combination with the AHC oils which I LOVE LOVE LOVE! The face wash cream/ahc oils are excellent for clearing out white and black head congestion. Great quality product line! (With an ugly name)
This is the ULTIMATE CLEANSER! HG! Love love love! Isn't the whole Jurlique line great? Makes skin soooo soft and healthy!
During winter my face was sooooo dry and my friends would tell me too how embarassing! I had to get rid of the dryness so i found jurlique,my HG face wash,i cant live without this now,I had red patches/dry skin on both cheeks now they gone thanks to JURLIQUE,its so pure!dont rub this onto your skin,u just need to blot it onto your skin!i'm so addicted to this brand that i ran out to buy the whole range,totally worth every penny!dunno how but this face wash works even better with the AHC.JURLIQUE ROCKZ!
I love this stuf! I have dry sensitive pimple prone skin and i was always breaking out because if couldt find a skincare routine that would help my skin. i was getting pretty desperate so i decided to try this, my mum uses a different jurlique cleanser and it didnt work so i was sceptical, but this loved my skin. i follow the instructions using the ahc(lavender) before hand then using this and following up with clinique toner and my skin has dfrastically inproved. i dont need moisturiser in summer and if my skin does get dry ill dap on some flash balm. this is great!
I love this stuff!!!!! I use this about 3 times a week along with my cetaphil cleanser and it's done wonders for me! After using it my skin just feels so soft and looks like it's glowing!! I love it!!!!
Looked forward to using it every morning, loved that my face felt clean and fresh, but did nothing to help with my blackheads. Have not bought it again.
