Jurlique Hydrating Rose Duo


We can’t put it off any longer. It’s time to start sharing some of the gifts we’ll be giving for Christmas, and which we’d like ourselves. Frankly, they’re the only ones we’ll bother sharing.

We’re fussy. We’ve been around aeons. We know what we like, and what real women like. We’re not interested in gimmicks, or products that are going to gather dust, but in pretty fail-safe presents that will really push recipients’ buttons.

So let’s start with this excellent rose-powered duo from Jurlique. Their rose-scented products have done well in our Beauty Bibles (first books, now online Awards) since the year dot (or rather, 1996 when the first book came out).

Jurlique Hydrating Rose Duo features two longstanding favourites of ours, and of our testers: Rose Hand Cream (125 ml) – the perfect rich, nourishing but not sticky cream – along with a Rose Love Balm (15 ml), a fab multi-tasker.

They’ve both got a divine rosy-posy scent. Your great aunt, your best friend, your goddaughter: hand on heart there’s nobody who won’t love this.

Our definition of a perfect gift. (And more to come as the clock ticks down to Christmas Day.)
