Used to be one of my favourites
Herbal recovery advanced serum used to be one of my favourite skin products before I purchased it this Christmas sale. I only opened it yesterday and the nice gentle smell that I loved on my face now has a hint of a mildly smoked trout. I purchased it with 50% discount online, but frankly I was buying a different product. I feel disappointed that I didn't get the product I was buying (I have been using advanced serum for at least 2 years prior to this purchase and feel that I no longer trust buying Jurlique product. If this sale had an aim to s...ell out the products because they do not meet normal expectations- I believe it should have been clarified on your sale page. I am confident that something like this does not happen with say Lancôme, where you get exactly what you pay for, either on sale or full price. :-(
Noticed difference after first use
I received my first sample on Cathay Pacific. After just one use my daughter commented on how nice my skin looked. After draining my free sample I splurged for the big bottle. I have rosecea and very prone to break outs. This product has reduced my redness and really made a difference on my face. I highly recommend it.
ok for younger people but...
It is OK for younger people but if your over 50 I would be wary
It seems to make the skin on the neck crepey IE looks older! Plus face became more red
I read somewhere that our skin thins as we get older and the anti aging serums can irritate older skin
I saw a makeup consultant slathering anti she serum on an older women so one wonders
My skin is not normally sensitive so be wary of your over 50
Jurlique Herbal Recovery/ Advanced Serum, expensive
I have used Jurlique and this product since its beginnings. They 'reformulated' this gel more recently (don't know why as it was always a best seller), and called it 'advanced'. This is a nice gel, lovely even, and the consistency and smell are fine. It seems similar to previous one to me. The cost has escalated in recent years, now at $175 for 100ml (now before tax too which used to be included), or $79 for 30ml (must be because it is 'advanced' in a more silvery colored bottle!). The product is now tailored I think also for the chinese market...and animal testing is also thus allowed on this and Jurlique products. There are now many other good natural, organic and ethical products (this is not organic) out there, and much cheaper. At the moment I use this alternately with some other serums I have found that are good and much cheaper. The order within Australia took about 2 weeks to arrive (I had to chase it up as I was wondering what had happened by then and they used to be quicker).
This is my all time favourite skincare product! I cannot stress enough how much I love it. It's a serum, rather than a cream which I love and it's beautiful to use. You only need a small amount to cover your whole face and neck. The serum soaks in perfectly - the skin just drinks it! I always find my skin is in much better condition when I'm able to use this product daily.

A little of this serum/gel goes a long way so despite it costing quite a bit ( the 100 ml is $ 140 approx ) it works well on my sensitive skin, elimates blemishes and reduces pores, glides and hydrates the skin well, making it look radiant and feeling smooth. I would give it 5 stars but it is expensive, however a little lasts a long time and you are paying for a quality brand with quality ingredients.
smooth on my skin, luminates it !
This gel is lovely. It is made of pure, natural herbal ingredients. When applied on blemishes, sores etc they seem to heal almost overnight. Suitable for all skin types- mine is prone to breakouts and this stuff just helps to heal any blemishes, not encourage more. Good for around the eye area too. It costs a bomb to buy a large bottle, but it will last ages as it spreads really easily, especially on damp skin.
Lovely light gel that absorbs easily and does wonders for sking repair and healing
it is quite expensive, but a little goes a long way
This product is quite pleasant to use. One full pump covers my entire face adequately. It is a watery sort of gel so it spreads very easily and is absorbed surprisingly quickly by my skin. After continuous use, it leaves my skin balanced and glowing.
-Comes fron an Australian owned company that manufactures effective products which uses ingredients that are botanically based
-The product comes in a glass pump bottle is fantastic as it is a hygenic method of dispensing and also allows us to gauge the amount of product used.
-Has attractive packaging and comes in two sizes 30mL and 100mL
-Has a very strong floral scent which I find off putting
I like to put this on in the evening around my eyes and cheeks. It is very gentle and absorbable - not at all greasy. I received a bottle as a Christmas gift - I'm not convinced that it meets its claims so I don't think I'd rush to purchase it.
The Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel is a light weight, easily absorbable gel-like cream which is supposed to have restorative properties for tired skin. It has a mild fragrance, feels 'watery' when applying it and a little bit goes a long way.
This is a very expensive product and I'm not sure that it is worth it as I can't say that I noticed a lot of difference in my skin appearance.
