Jurlique Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator Review

You know what big fans of natural products we are here at Beauty Crazed and Christelle so loves her Jurlique Purifying Mask that I thought it was high time that I tried some Jurlique myself!  I decided to give Jurlique Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator - 50ml - $49.50 a go because I love fruit and I love exfoliators so it seemed impossible that this stuff wouldn't be great!  First off, the smell is amazing, very citrus, which I love!  The name might be a bit misleading if you are used to your exfoliators being the scrub type - this exfoliator is a peel, so no roughness to it at all!  It's very easy to use, you clean your face, apply a thin layer of the exfoliator to your face and neck, avoiding the eye area, leave it on for up to five minutes and then just rinse it off with water.  Now I've heard some people mention that they felt nothing at all when it was on their face but I actually felt a very small tingle - which  I like because then I feel like something is happening!  It came off easily with water and my skin felt very soft afterwards.  You can use it 2-3 times a week and be sure to wear your sunscreen as products that contain AHAs can really increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun.  I also found after using it that my moisturizer seemed to work better and soak in easier so that was a nice bonus!

Jurlique is an Australian line and this product is chock full of natural enzymes and extracts native to Australia such as: Quandong, also known as desert peach, which grows from a tree native to Australia that's related to the Sandalwood tree.  Quandong Extract is high in Vitamin C and essential fatty acids to help improve the complexion and assist with gentle exfoliation, Desert Lime, which is rich in antioxidant Vitamin C - the fruit works to promote youthful looking skin and helps gently exfoliate, Acacia (Wattle), Australia's national flower is also a gentle exfoliant.  Other key ingredients include Pumpkin Enzyme to exfoliate and Sugar Cane, Lemon, Orange and Apple to improve dull complexions for more even skin tone and brighter, clearer complexion.  Natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Lactic, Malic and Citric Acids promote cell turnover and radiant skin, while Willow Bark Extract improves tone, texture and appearance with natural Beta Hydroxy Acids.  Prickly Pear Stem and Green Tea leaf invigorate the skin with antioxidants and humectants to make the skin feel healthier and hydrated while helping to promote firmer skin.  Prickly Pear Flower helps soften fine lines and wrinkles through gentle exfoliation.

If you've ever felt that manual exfoliation (with a scrub) is too harsh for your skin or you are just looking for a new way to softer skin then the Jurlique Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator is definitely worth a try!  You can score your own Jurlique products at Sephora and Holt Renfrew.
