With the arrival of 2016, I welcomed a deeper, unsettling redness in my cheeks – no bueno. It seemed to have come out of no where. I have bumpy, congested spots that required more makeup than usual. I started coming to terms with the fact I have inherited my genetic rosacea. But leave it to April’s Rosacea Awareness Month to bring attention to a line that has finally brought some relief.
Jurlique’s Calendula Redness Rescue helps calm redness with organic ingredients. I am hard pressed to pick a favorite from the three products from the line that I tried out – I think they have all earned a spot in my permanent collection. First up, the classic Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue Soothing Moisturising Cream utilizes their proprietary Comfort Complex to works against sensitivity while providing hydration. Along with Calendula, the formula contains Chamomile, Echinacea, Self-Heal, Spilanthes and Marshmallow extracts to provide an effective defense in soothing red, sensitized skin.
I’ve been on a mist kick lately, so not surprised I fell hard for the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist. I love the subtle scent and hydration. The balancing spray also makes makeup look natural and dewy.
Last is a serum I like to layer below the cream. Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum helps with redness, but also gives a youthful glow. It works against fine lines and encourages radiance. All three are available at Sephora and Jurlique.com.
