You'll probably remember that I've previously declared my love for home-grown Aussie brand, Jurlique, in particular the Hydrating Rose Mist, the hand creams, sun creams and lip balms, so today I'm going to talk about the Purifying Mask and the Blemish Cream.

Recently my skin has gone a little bonkers. While I've always struggled with breakouts, in recent years I've managed to keep them under fairly good control. Until recently where a particularly stressful period in my life, made my skin flare up like it hasn't for a long time. I reached for several products, among those the Jurlique Purifying Mask and the Jurlique Blemish Cream.

Keeping my skin cleansed deep down every pore, is a vital step - including doing the weekly or twice weekly face mask to really draw out those impurities. The Jurlique Purifying Mask is a purifying and refining treatment mask designed specifically for oily skin. It gently exfoliates the skin while controlling and rebalancing oiliness and helps lift away and absorb impurities and excess sebum from the skin and pores.

The actual mask is a clay mask that contains potent botanical extracts including among others sesame seed oil, almonds and oat bran to exfoliate, and lift away the impurities while extracts of wheat bran, carrot root, green tea, grapeseed and tumeric helps protect the skin against environmental aggressors.

It is recommended to be used weekly and left on the skin, avoiding the eye area for approx 10. I do admit to using it twice a week for a few weeks, simply as my skin was so bad. And while I did not notice an immediate effect of the mask, I did after each use both seen and feel that my skin was incredibly soft and smooth, and pores appeared smaller. Often masks designed for oily skin really dry out the skin, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn't the case with this one from Jurlique. Since regularly using this mask, my skin has luckily almost cleared up again. As I've used countless of other products in the fight of the blemishes, it is naturally a little tricky to exactly say how this mask has performed. However, I am convinced that it has helped make my skin considerably less greasy, and consequently it has helped prevent my pores becoming clogged up and the blemishes appearing in the first place.

The mask has a lovely natural scent that you can only love, and I also really like knowing that it is made using the best organic ingredients without all the nasties! 

The Jurlique Blemish Cream is an acne-purifying treatment that contains botanicals and clay to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and redness, while soothing the skin at the same time as it helps rebalance oiliness and sebum in the skin.

The Blemish Cream can be used both during the day and night, but personally I find that it is best used during the day only, for the simple reason that it is slightly tinted, so it actually works as a kind of concealer at the same time. It is easy to blend, and helps even out the skin tone, and covering not only the actual blemish, but also any redness surrounding it. Unlike most other blemish creams I've tried, the Jurlique Blemish Cream doesn't irritate my skin or dry it out, yet still within a day or two of using it, blemished are usually either cleared up or at least significantly reduced in size. I also like that it doesn't have that typical strong chemical scent of most other blemish treatments, and I really like that this Blemish Cream not only covers up breakouts and blemishes, but helps treat them at the same time.

Overall, two fantastic products from Jurlique, that are definitely worth checking out if you too suffer with oily skin and breakouts.
