Calming mist whenever my skin is experiencing redness and itchiness

IMG_2894

The Jurlique face mist isn’t a new thing in my skincare arsenal. I’ve previously tried the rose face mist and I fell in love with the scent. Always with the scent. When it comes to hydrating toner I think I’m easily swayed when it’s obviously hydrating and the product has a really nice scent. But I couldn’t help to wonder whether the 100ml bottle of this face mist at around IDR 670,000 is too pricey or not? But when I factor in my other hydrating toner and how long it lasts, probably it is worth the price.

So I picked up another one after I finished my bottle of rose face mist, this time around the travel size of Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue. At that time, I was having a really problematic skin with new small acne popping out every other week or so and unbearable redness and itchiness due to stress caused by projects deadline. I was under a lot of pressure and it’s taking a toll on my skin.

The easiest way to deal with redness and itchiness, other than using the right skincare arsenal, is also to have a kick ass face mist. Whenever the urge to scratch my face arise, I would just spray a face mist. That’s why I picked this one. Because calendula is one ingredient that will go hand in hand with my problem. Calendula is known for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Tea for your skin from Jacqueline Evans

Jacqueline Evans is another skincare product that hailed from Australia. To be exact the home of Jacqueline Evans skincare is Malvern, Victoria. It’s no surprise that I jumped to the opportunity of trying the skincare from this brand. I wasn’t sure where to start with this brand. As with any other brand, I was playing it safe and opted for the face mist instead.

Before I review the Jacqueline Evans Rooibos Facial Toner, let me first introduce you to the brand. Jacqueline Evans is a Naturopathic Skincare and classified as a premium organic skincare, though price-wise it ranges between AUS 18 – 78. With the most expensive product being the eye gel. The brand focusses on research so that they could find safe products yet effective. It contains only natural and certified organic ingredients.

The Rooibos Facial Toner is a face mist that is packaged in amber glass bottle with a spritzer. The spritzer itself is easy to use and it disperse a normal amount of mist, the one that is not too fine and not that horrific that you feel like it’s raining cats and dogs.
The ingredients is pretty simple, they are:
organic rooibos tea*, rosa damascena (rose) water*, aloe vera concentrate, soya lecithin,
vegetable glycerine, amyris balsamifera (sandalwood) oil, rosa damascena (rose) oil,
pelargonium graveolens (geranium) oil, grapefruit seed extract
*certified organic ingredients
Instead of using water, Evans used organic rooibos tea and rose water for this beautiful concoction. The former ingredient lends its soothing and herbal scent of the product. I’m a tea drinker so using this product is a really pleasant experience for me. If you’ve ordered a rooibos tea from Starbucks before, you probably know what scent I’m talking about. It’s just this one is more delicate.

My Aussie Haul

Being surrounded by beauty junkie alike from FD means that I’m no short of offers to get me beauty stuff from overseas. The problem is, this makes me short on cash *gah!*. On my friend’s recent visit to Australia, she managed to get me these loot. I’m so excited of these natural goodies, which the Aussies (and extend that to the Kiwis) are known for. If the French have Pharmacy, then the Aussie have Chemist. It’s loaded with affordable skincare and mostly dominated by homegrown beauty product that is either organic or natural. They’re also serious when putting those labels. On top of that, compared to the Western Hemisphere products, the price tag is much much more reasonable.

See the description after the jump.
