Secrets how to keep skin healthy and glowing during my winter holiday in Harbin.

Hey everyone! There is another few days before Happy Chinese New Year ends. Gong xi gong xi hope you are blessed with abundance of wealth, health and happiness.

Sorry been missing from my blog for a while as I just got back from travelling weeks just before CNY not long ago. I finally managed to visit the famous Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival in Harbin, China. 

If you read before, Harbin temperature during winter season is really harsh and it is about -18 to -20 Celsius during the day time ande temperature dropped below -30 Celsius and more at night. And during my last year backpacker trip to Hokkaido, the winter was below -10 Celsius already quite unbearable where my skin & lips was peeling.

Knowing that CNY is just around after I'm back from Harbin, I knew my skin cannot take risk... cause want to look pretty pretty during CNY ma :) Hence finding the right skincare range to use in winter is really important as your skin is exposed to extreme coldness and dryness . You want to avoid at all cost skin from becoming very dry, peeling, cracking and bleeding especially on your face area. 

 I'm glad to tell you that I found the right skincare not only to suitable to use in Malaysia summer season but in Harbin winter season! Kid you not...not only my skin survive -30 Celsius but it was behaving really well during my trip and I wanted to share you in details! 

This is my winter skincare regime & in fact I continue using when I'm back in Malaysia. So basically this Jurlique skincare range that are able to hydrate & protect my skin from summer to winter :)

Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser (RM150/200ml)

A soothing foaming cleanser for sensitive skin that lifts away surface impurities to leave the complexion fresh and clean. It helps to re-balance skin's sensitivity, hydrate and dryness leaving skin clean and comfortable. This is suitable for people with sensitive skin.

I can smell calming lavendar scent when you lather up the cleanser with water. It's a milky foam that gently cleans my skin leaving it soft and hydrated. 

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist (RM147/100ml)

This can work as a hydrating mist and toner. It's suitable for normal to combination skin that able to restore and hydrates the complexion. 

This is one of my favourite product from Jurlique because it has my favourite  rose scent that is very lovely. Plus my skin immediately feel soft & supple after few spray on the skin, I would recommend you to warm your palm before pat the product into the skin for better absorption. For convenient, I pour some into my travel size container and carry them around handbag so that I can use to refresh my face anytime I want. This also can work as makeup setting spray.

Jurlique Activating Water Essence (150ml/RM265)

This works like a pre-essence product where we need to apply after tone before serum. This product will prepare the skin to fully absorb the benefits of your serum and moisturiser. Pour a few drops into the palm of your hand and warm and gently press over your face, neck and decolletage for better absorption. Interestingly this product key ingredient is marshmallow root as it would be able to provide intensive hydrating, softening and balancing properties to our skin. 

Love how it has really light herbal botanical scent with notes of lavender, geranium, and sandalwood. Lovely combination of scent! The texture of this product is like water but it works magically to make my skin feel soft and hydrated preparing my skin for next step. 

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum (30ml/RM288 or 100ml/RM592)

This is youth defence serum that promise to help reduce the appearance of first sign of aging i.e fine lines, improve elasticity, restore radiance and increase hydration whilst protecting the skin from environmental aggressors. 

Key Ingredients: 

- Wu-Zhu-Yu (Evodia Rutaecarpa) : Improve micro-circulation within epidermis.

- Peach Leaf Extract : Contributes to the skin’s capacity to protect itself against future environmental damage. 

This serum is a savior as it keeps my skin not only hydrated by glowing under -30 Celsius weather! I just use 1-2 pumps onto fingertips and press gently over face, neck and decolletage and the gel serum immediately absorb into my skin nincely. I love the floral scent and how the serum does a great job keeping my skin hydrated and comfortable in Harbin although the air is dry and cold. It leaves my skin visibly glowing, hydrated and keeping my fine lines at bay. Absolute love this product and I'm highly recommending this! 

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Face Oil (RM241/50ml)

This treatment oil is designed to smooth fine lines, restore luminosity and deeply moisturise. A potent proprietary blend of extracts helps protect against environmental aggressors and aid in skin wellness. Skin feels smooth, hydrated and looks even toned and radiant.

This oil is quite rich and would be suitable to use in the day & night after serum in winter. Just take 2-3 drops and gently press onto face, neck and decolletage until absorbed for additional moisturiser protection. And in summer or other seasons, I would recommend you to use this product during your night skincare regime and this would be extremely be suitable for people sleeping in air condition room. If you have extremely dry skin, you can use in the morning too but maybe 1-2 drops would be sufficient due to our humid weather.

Jurlique Calendula Redness Soothing Moisturising Cream (RM150/40ml or RM288/100ml) 

A rich moisturising cream for sensitive skin that deeply hydrates and soothes whilst protecting skin from environmental aggressors.

During winter our skin will sometimes turn to become sensitive hence I got moisturer from sensitive range to use as well. This soothing product helps to heal and restore damaged or scarred skin. Although the product texture is cream but it's light and non-greasy so it's okay to be for people with oily skin I believe.

I was a bit hesitate to use natural skincare brand in winter because I have the perception natural/organic skincare brand might be less hydrating and less efficient but Jurlique proved me wrong.

And after a month  of using the product (in Harbin & Malaysia), I can see my skin are properly hydrated and in fact skin was glowing! The pores & fine line are noticeable smaller and faded out. The fact that Jurlique skincare especially the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum was able to perform during Malaysia hot weather to Harbin cold weather truly impressed me. Unlike previous winter trip I always came home to Malaysia with nose area skin peeling (cos the skincare was not hydrating enough) and sometimes I have to swap to another skincare range in Malaysia (it's too rich for Malaysian weather)

I also went  to try Jurlique Water Essence Skin Activating Facial Treatment a week before CNY. I'm super impressive with the facial because it really condition, hydrate and revitalise my skin.. 

I can see the GLOW immediately after facial 😍😍😍 unbelievable and this is a #nofilter #nomakeup picture!! 

Good news is there is a 50% for first trial (Normal price RM430 for 1h45m facial)... Pls go try and experience is relaxing yet effective facial :)
