Jurlique’s Botanical Cleansers
If ever there was a summer essential in our beauty cupboard, it would be Jurlique’s radiant skin foaming cleanser. After a full day outside, apart from the dirt and make-up even our very own dead skin cells become skin stressors. We believe that cleansing is the first step to having radiant skin and this cleanser naturally removes the impurities that make the skin look dull and tired.
We love the unique blend of botanicals that are handpicked from Jurlique’s organic farm. They all have strong antioxidant properties that help gently cleanse and protect the skin. They offer the ultimate solution in botanical cleansing and come in a range of luxurious textures: a lush foam, a silky oil, a rich lotion, and a gorgeously lightweight gel. Jurlique’s radiant skin foaming cleanser is priced at HKD $220 for 80g.
