Jurlique Citrus Purifying Mist Review
I received a bottle of Jurlique Citrus Purifying Mist and I am ready to review it after using it for 2 weeks. Despite receiving it for free, I will give an unbiased review. What a cliche disclaimer, lol! After all, I am anonymous here so I don’t feel pressured to give biased reviews for the products I have received for free.

Jurlique Citrus Purifying Mist Review
I have dry, dehydrated skin but Jurlique gave me this Citrus Purifying Mist which is meant for oily skin. The product claims to reduce oiliness and calm redness.
Many skincare enthusiasts who have a habit of reading the ingredient list will be horrified when they see alcohol is being listed as the second ingredient. Alcohol might be okay for oily skin but it is generally discouraged for dry skin because alcohol is drying. Hence, if you want to make your skin less oily, it is alright to use products with some alcohol in it.
I am biased when it comes to alcohol in skincare products. I am generally much more accepting when it comes to Japanese skincare products containing alcohol because I have tried several Japanese products containing alcohol and even comedogenic ingredients but they work wonderfully on my skin (I might review them in the future). Somehow, the Japanese can break some skincare rules and produce wonderful products so I learn to not be an ingredient snob when it comes to Japanese skincare products.
I decided to test this product anyway. Other than the alcohol, the rest of the ingredients seem quite interesting with all the botanical ingredients. After cleansing my face, I shake the bottle and spray it all over my face with my eyes closed. The smell is citrus-like and the texture is exactly like water so it absorbs into the skin quickly. Besides that, the high alcohol content also aids in the product being evaporated quickly. Therefore, those with oily skin will love this texture as it is not sticky at all.
My verdict after using Jurlique Purifying Mist for 2 weeks? I think this product is useless to me. This is because I do not see any changes after using it. After all, it is not the right product for my skin type. At least I do not experience any negative effects.
Despite being catered as a product to reduce oiliness, I don’t notice the Jurlique Purifying Mist drying out my skin further as I use a moisturizer after that. I’m sorry I can’t test it without a moisturizer because my skin really needs a moisturizer.
Since Jurlique Citrus Purifying Mist does nothing for me, I will give it to my boyfriend who has oily skin to test it out. He is quite lazy in using skincare products though so I will only update this review if he uses it regularly.
