Today I’d like to share with you another amazing Xmas gift idea, this one from Jurlique, and it is so amazing that I personally would be so ecstatic finding it under the tree..


What They Say:

Hydra Control Body Essentials: Natural beauty starts with deep hydration. Leave your skin feeling soft, supple and perfectly protected with this deluxe package of hydration essentials.

RRP: $69 (Valued at $94) – Available from Jurlique

What I Say:

This gift set includes three full sized products:

  • Hydra Control Perfect Polish Body Scrub, 150ml
  • Hydra Control Moisture Revive Shower Gel, 250ml
  • Hydra Control Ultra-Rich Body Lotion, 250ml

So with a body scrub, a shower gel and a body lotion, it really does live up to the claim of body essentials!

When I received the Hydra Control Body Essentials Xmas Gift pack I was instantly impressed. It came in a gorgeous large box that looks like it is made from timber, and I actually had to study it up close to realised that it in fact was a printed cardboard box. It is just stunning. The Box has a Jurlique Xmas themed design on the lid. Inside the three full-sized products sit nicely and protected by red tissue paper.

The Jurlique Hydra Control Perfect Polish Body Scrub comes in an easy to use tube, and it has is made from pumice, apricot seed powder, olive seed powder and passion flower seed powder, all in a gel consistency. The scrub is very gentle, so you can use it frequently without feeling you’ve scrubbed your body red raw with a too abrasive scrub, but personally I would have liked it to be a bit grittier. And once rinsed off, and it does take a little while to get rid all the little scrubbing particles as they do not dissolve (and consequently also leave a little bit of a mess in your shower!), your skin is left wonderfully soft and without being dried out.

The Jurlique Hydra Control Moisture Revive Shower Gel comes in a pump bottle with a squarish design, and as always, I love that it is a pump dispenser as it is so easy to use. The shower gel claims to be a rich foaming body cleanser, and that it truly is – it easy lathers up into the softest foam (and even more so if you use a sponge!), that gently cleanses your skin. It contains among others extracts from honeysuckle, daisy and rose.

Finally, the Jurlique Hydra Control Ultra Rich Body Lotion also comes in the same style squarish pump bottle like the shower gel, which again I really love. And as the name suggests, the body lotion is extremely rich yet it absorbs quite quickly into the skin, leaving it silky soft and smooth, and without any greasiness or residue at all – which is rather surprising considering its rich consistency. Consequently it is also rather concentrated so you only need to use a little. And it seriously keeps your body nourished and hydrated all day long, with no need to reapply.

All the products have the same floral scent that comes from the included botanical ingredients, and as it is such a natural scent, you can only love it!

You can of course purchase the products individually, but buying this gift set not only saves you money, but you also get the beautiful box that you can reuse to store other little things such as jewellery.
