Review: Jurlique Clarifying Deep Cleansing Gel

I have been incorporating this Clarifying Deep Cleansing Gel by Jurlique in my morning skincare routine over the past few weeks, and have been thoroughly pleased with it.

Jurlique claims that this gel cleanser "provides a multi-benefit function to take control of excess sebum production. With gentle exfoliating micro beads from natural Jojoba esters combined with Willow Bark, surface dirt, impurities and sebum are cleared while promoting increased cell turnover to improve surface texture and a fresh appearance."

When I first heard about this gel cleaner, I thought it's right up my alley, as I have problems with oily skin. However, I was a bit iffy about the whole "micro beads" thing, after learning about micro beads from personal care products ending up in our oceans and being eaten by sea life (read here for more information). I was assured by Jurlique that the micro beads in this gel are made from a natural ingredient (jojoba seeds), and is readily biodegradable and non-hazardous.

As mentioned earlier, this is a gel cleanser and thus has a gel consistency with small granules (micro beads). As such, it is slightly grainy but is not abrasive at all. So much so that I even risked my skin in the name of beauty and used my Clarisonic with it (in case you aren't aware, you shouldn't use cleansers with beads or exfoliants with a Clarisonic). I'm come away unscathed! In fact, I really enjoyed using my Clarisonic with this cleanser, as the Clarisonic added an extra level of exfoliation. 
This cleansing gel also doesn't dry out my skin. Rather, it leaves my skin feeling smooth and refreshed. It has a pleasant citrus/lemon-grass scent that I wouldn't normally be a fan off, but I quite like this fresh scent!
As for the claim that it helps with excess sebum production, I honestly cannot attest to this. I haven't noticed a decrease in sebum production after using this cleanser every morning for the past 3 weeks or so. My skin still gets oily enough for me to want to blot around the same time of the day as before I started using this cleanser. However, I have and still am enjoying using this cleanser every morning and would recommend this!
Jurlique Clarifying Deep Cleansing Gel retails for $38.00 and can be purchased directly from Jurlique stores (or online - jurlique.com.au), leading department stores and selected pharmacies nationally.
