Activating Water Essence

Your step-by-step guide to the Jurlique skin care ritual

At Jurlique, we pride ourselves on our six-step skincare ritual. While it may seem excessive – especially compared to the traditional three-step cleanse, tone and moisturize routines – each step is beneficial for the skin. And for us, it’s not just a ‘routine’, we call it a ritual for a reason. It’s our form of self-care, a time to slow down, focus on ourselves and our wellbeing and look after our entire selves: mind, body, and soul. Discover our guide to the Jurlique skin care ritual below.

Cleanse Like every good skin care routine, cleansing is the first step of the Jurlique ritual. Cleanse twice daily and embrace the double-cleanse in the evenings for a deeper clean (the first cleanse removes dirt, debris, and makeup, while the second cleanse unclogs the pores). Choose a natural-based face cleanser like our Nourishing Cleansing Oil or discover all our cleansers here.

Mist We do things differently at Jurlique. We don’t have a traditional ‘toner’ but we have Mists and Essences instead (our Rosewater Balancing Mist is kind of a big deal). Packed with natural botanical extracts, our Mists provide instant hydration, helping skin to feel soothed and balanced. After cleansing, close your eyes and spritz your mist around your face. Gently press into your skin to help the ingredients absorb.

Activating Water Essence Activating Water Essence hydrates and preps the skin to help it absorb the rest of your skin care products. It also contains emollients and high-performing botanical extracts to attract and hold water for a smoother, softer and healthier-looking complexion. To apply, pour a couple of drops into your palms and press gently onto the face, neck, and décolletage. Want to know more?

Serum Serums are lightweight (but potent) formulas designed to provide your skin with extra hydration as well as target specific skin care concerns. With serums, a little goes a long way - gently press 1-2 pumps of the formula over your face, neck, and décolletage and leave to sink in before you move on to the next step.

Eye Care The skin around the eyes is delicate and prone to dryness. It’s also one of the first areas to show signs of aging, so a nourishing eye cream or gel is important (for those first signs of aging, Herbal Recovery Signature Eye Cream is our best eye cream for wrinkles and dark circles). Eye Creams are formulated for different skin care concerns, so choose one that suits your needs most and gently press and smooth the cream around your eye contour area using your ring fingers.

Moisturizer Rich and creamy, Moisturizers seal in hydration, improve the skin’s protective barrier, and lock in the benefits of the products you’ve used before it. Like other skin care products, moisturizers target different skin care concerns and can be used at different times. A richer formula is great for your nighttime ritual, while lightweight moisturizers tend to work well for day and in hotter climates.
