Jurlique: Radiance Renewal 28 Day Program

Glowing skin is all I want for my wedding! I want my skin to look clear and gorgeous and glowing! I have been very picky with what skincare products I have been using leading up to the wedding. My routine has been very strict and has been working well. I was feeling like I needed one more thing to help boost the radiance just a little more...enter: Jurlique Radiance Renewal 28 Day Program.

 First things first, for those of you who haven't heard of Jurlique before, they are a beautiful brand born in the heart of South Australia. Dr J├╝rgen Klein, a biochemist, and his wife Ulrike, a botanist, had always been passionate believers in the healing power of nature. Their vision was to create a pure and natural skin care range combining the ancient arts of alchemy, herbal medicine and homeopathy to reconnect people to nature. So they began their search for the purest place on earth and after searching the world, they discovered the unspoiled Adelaide Hills in South Australia. Today, Jurlique products are sold in more than 19 countries around the world. And their most iconic natural ingredients are still grown in the Adelaide Hills where Jurlique first began.

I have only used a few different Jurlique products before, but I have loved everything that I have tried. They are simple products that just seem to work and my skin seems to love them. I first started to get really into the brand last year, when a Jurlique store opened up in Canberra. I am now starting to form quite a love for the brand. 

Radiance Renewal 28 Day Program

The Radiance Renewal 28 Day Program is a powerful two-step treatment that works with your skin’s natural renewal cycle. It deeply replenishes and restores radiance. Its specially formulated botanical concentrates are designed to help revitalize your skin, and leave it looking luminous. I believe it may have been a limited edition release as it is no longer available on the website. If you can find it in store, grab it! It’s perfect for rejuvenating tired or dull skin. It prepares your skin for a special event, or whenever your skin needs an intensive radiance boost.

The whole program is done through two steps and the best part is that you don't need to change your skincare routine at all to include them. After using your serum, before moisturising is when you would apply them. It's as simple as adding in one extra step. 

The first step occurs over the first 14 days of the program. It is a lightweight, antioxidant-rich lotion gently exfoliates your skin. It helps even skin tone and texture, and assists with the renewal of your skin. The key ingredients in this step include:

  • Spilanthes: Grown, harvested and extracted at our farm in the hills of South Australia, this helps tone and purify the skin.
  • Kakadu Plum: As the world’s richest natural source of Vitamin C, this powerful Australian superfruit extract helps improve skin tone and radiance. Also, it helps reduce the appearance of discoloration.
  • Willow Bark: The natural exfoliating properties of this concentrated botanical extract help improve the skin’s tone, texture and appearance.

When using step 1 I found that I only needed a small, pea sized amount to be able to cover my whole face. It was lightweight and spread easily across the skin, soaking in quickly. I applied it both morning and night after my serum and found that it left my skin feeling hydrated and there was no issue with applying make up over the top. I was using a fairly lightweight moisturiser after, but you could use any moisturiser (or none) after this step. 

I didn't see a huge change in my skin during the first two weeks. Yes, my spots started to clear up and my skintone started to even out a little bit, but there were no dramatic changes. I was really enjoying using this step though, it felt lovely on the skin and was so easy to apply.

STEP 2: 

This step is a luxurious cream that smooths skin. It also protects and deeply replenishes your skin to bring it back to optimum vitality during the final 14 days of your program. It uses:

  • Echinacea: This pure botanical extract from our Jurlique Farm in the hills of South Australia helps soothe and restore your skin. In addition, it protects it from environmental aggressors.
  • Kakadu Plum: Much as in, Step 1, this Vitamin C-rich extract of the Australian superfruit helps renew skin luminosity and restore radiance.
  • Peach Leaf: This concentrated botanical extract helps revitalize and soften skin. Also, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and discoloration and restores radiance.

Again, I applied this the same way I applied step 1, after my serum and before my moisturiser. It was a much thicker consistency to the first step and I did find I needed slightly more and I had to work it into the skin with a little bit more effort. What I did find in using this step was my skin started to look brighter, glowier and felt way more hydrated. At the end of 2017 I would have said I had dry skin, I wouldn't say that anymore, especially after using this program. The results definitely come through in the last step and I am loving how my skin looks at the moment (three days after finishing the 28 days).

All in all I have been super impressed with this little treatment. I love how easy it was to use and how I didn't have to change my routine at all to use it. It was just one extra step in the morning and evening, which in the scheme of things for me, isn't much. There is still enough product left in the bottles for a second round, which I will be starting soon to get my skin looking extra glorious in the lead up to the wedding (it's almost a month a way...what! Crazy!) If you're looking for something that will help with skin texture, reduce redness and leave your skin looking glowy, but you're worried about it being harsh on the skin, then I would definitely recommend this treatment. By using natural ingredients it is gentle on the skin and I found I didn't have any irritation or any breakouts (except for Easter) while using these. Definitely a big fan!

As I mentioned earlier, I think these may have been a limited release over Christmas/New Year as they are now no longer on the website, however if you do happen to find them instore GRAB THEM! They retail for $99, but are so worth it!
