Over the past couple of years my love for glosses has really grown. Once a product I would avoid, put off by high-street brands whose formulas felt sticky, thick and always a mess to apply and wear, I discovered brands and ranges which were the opposite, which made me fall in love with glosses again. I've tried my fair share of brands and have built up a steady collection of glosses with a variety of finishes and intensity, but a brand I never would have considered for a gloss is Jurlique.
For those of you new to Jurlique (like me), they are a brand whose main range is an effective and skin-loving skincare range for a variety of skin types and ages, expanding to include a luxurious body care range. Their products are always beautifully packaged and from the few skincare products I have tried, the scents, presentation and effectiveness of the products are incredible. Jurlique is a brand built on natural expertise, a brand whose ethos is to harness natural botanicals, using pure, potent and ethically sourced ingredients.
Exclusive to feelunique.com, the new Jurlique Hydra-Gloss with Nutri-Oil Complex* (£12) combines beautifully effective skincare, with the colour pay-off of a natural looking flush of colour. Available in two shades; I'm Blushing, a hint of soft pink, and I'm Neutral, a soft neutral gloss with an ever so slight peach tone, both are wearable alone on makeup free days, as well as days when you want a soft, healthy full lip to compliment a neutral makeup look.
Each has the most subtle minty scent, which may not be everyone's cup of tea but personally, I quite like in lip products. The formula has been specifically created to condition, smooth and soften lips with ultra-nourishing ingredients such as Vitamin E, Avocado Oil, Cocoa and Jojoba Seed Oils to name but a few of the beautiful ingredients inside, presented in small, compact squeezy tubes great for popping in your handbag or keeping on your desk.
They are completely paraben free with no artificial fragrances as well as being dermatologically tested, and I've found the texture and consistency to be spot on. Not too thick, not too thin, they provide a lovely glossy veil which feels completely weightless. There's no messy, sticky, thick feel to the formula, so no worries about catching your hair in gloss every time you move, and I've found with daily use over the past few weeks on makeup free days, my lips have felt soft and pampered by the end of the day. Lovely.
