Jurlique's Biodynamic Beauty

Last week, Jurlique launched their new Biodynamic Beauty line with a party at the home of film director Brett Ratner. Brett is an old friend of mine (he actually helped me to make my movie) and he has an AMAZING house with the fancy title, The Hillhaven Lodge (it's one of those Hollywood staples that has been around for ages and has seen the likes of many a celebrity prance through the sprawling estate - there's even a disco with a DJ booth a a swirling disco ball!).

Anyway, back to the beauty. Brett hosted the Jurlique launch and the celebs flocked in droves to enjoy an afternoon BBQ and hand and foot treatments with Jurlique's Rosewater Balancing Mist and Rose Hand Cream (obvi). Guests included Salma Hayek, Rosanna Arquette, Paris Hilton, Stevie Wonder, Oliver Stone, Tracey Edmonds, Gerard Butler, Francis Ford Coppola, Scott Caan, Jared Leto, Ileana Douglas, and Claire Forlani.

Here are some pics from the event:

I, unfortunately, had to miss the fete because I was 3,000 miles away celebrating love in NYC. However, I was able to get my hands (and eyes) on the brand new Biodynamic Eye Cream.

A word (or several...) about the eye cream:
"A high-performance, deeply hydrating cream, made with the most efficacious natural actives, providing immediate and long-term improvements to the skin around the eye area. Rich in the living energy of Euphrasia and Arnica, this intensely moisturising eye cream helps reenergise tired-looking eyes. Eyes appear brighter as dark circles begin to fade and puffiness is reduced. Lines and wrinkles are softened for a smoother eye contour. "

The cream has a surprisingly light consistency. Anyone who is a fan of Jurlique can attest to the fact that their creams tend to be on the richer/ creamier side - not this one. It's lightweight and less thick - not that this is a bad thing. It still hydrates, soothes, and moisturizes. And it does awaken tired eyes with its incredible blend of all-natural ingredients. Like all Jurlique products, it smells fresh, healthy and clean and is perfect for sensitive skin. And, a little goes a long way.

My one complaint - and I have this same issue with many of their products - is in regards to the packaging. Because of the tube, excess cream easily escapes. It seems a bit of a waste because more cream comes out then is actually needed. But other then this minor package blip, I have to say, Jurlique scores yet again! Bravo to another amazing product!

PRICE TAG: $45.00 for .05 oz

I can't wait to try out the rest of the line... have you tested any of the Biodynamic products? Have a favorite? Let us know!
