Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist

We've loved Jurlique since we first met its original founder, Dr. Jurgen Klein, back in the early 90s. He was growing his own ingredients biodynamically in sun-soaked Australia, and we loved Jurlique's natural philosophy. The brand has grown over the years but it's about to enter a new phase, featured in select M&S Your Beauty stores with this deluxe Rosewater Balancing Mist (the perfect summer cool-down, if summer ever arrives...)  A limited edition, it features a blend of five rose extracts including rosa Gallica, rosa centifolia, hibiscus rosa Sinensis, rosa canina and rosa multiflora, to soothe, cool and balance.

We love the soft rose scent, those hydrating botanicals - and also the fact that a portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold will go to the Jurlique Ideas of Beauty Fund, which empowers, mentors and educates women globally.  (They raised over £100,000 for the cause last year alone, and their first initiative was with the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience - www.aimementoring.com - which aims to help those students finish school at the same rate as all Australians.

So you get a lovely rosy product.  And those young women get a rosier future, too...
