Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist - review


I've been testing a couple of new face mists recently and this is one of them. The other one was an offering from NuFACE, which I really liked (I've reviewed it here), and while this one's fine, I definitely prefer the NuFACE.

Still, I think this is a decent product and although it costs more than I would typically pay for a face mist (I get through them too quickly to buy expensive ones), if you like Jurlique and the smell of rosewater, then this may be one to try.

Jurlique claims/product details:

I think this face mist is fine, but it's been designed for normal/combination skin so it's not surprising that it's not the best mist I've tried for my dry skin.

It's a standard mist that comes in a beautiful glass spray bottle. First off, I have to say that I like the spray itself. It's fine enough that it doesn't disturb my makeup or leave droplets on my face, and it's also not too forceful so it doesn't shift things.

It smells like rose but thankfully the scent isn't too strong because I personally don't like the smell of rose and never have, and some of Jurlique's products smell so strongly of rose that I find them to be unusable. This one's fine and I can live with it.

In terms of effect, look, it does feel a little hydrating and cooling but not enough for my dry skin, and while I do find it to be refreshing, it doesn't get in there and really nourish my skin like some mists can do - so I agree that it's better for normal/combination skin, and Jurlique has plenty of mists on offer so I'm sure that some of them would suit my skin better than this one does.

I do however agree that there's something balancing about it, and it feels rather toning so I can see how it would suit other skin types. So if you have normal/combination skin and like Jurlique, then it may be worth testing this in-store.

On the claims: yes it's a little revitalising and refreshing, although I've certainly used better; yes I think it enlivens dull skin a little, although not for long - and, again, I've used better; no I don't think it softens and smooths my skin, but yes I agree that it tones and balances; and no I don't think it's particularly hydrating, although it does hydrate a little.

Overall, I think this is a decent product but it's expensive for what it is and it's not the right kind of mist for my dry skin, although I can certainly see it suiting those with normal/combination skin who want something light.

Fine but not for me.
