A few days ago I received a gorgeous colourful package from a brand called Jalue. If like me you’re not yet familiar with them, Jalue is an ice therapy skin care brand…yes that’s right, ice therapy! I’d never heard of it either, but apparently this therapy can work absolute wonders for your skin. Basically ice therapy is the notion of running a herb infused popsicle over your face and neck every morning and night…sound’s crazy I know, but on Jalue’s website it states that Russia’s most famous empress was known to apply an ice cube to her face and neck every morning to preserve her beauty and refresh her complexion, so if it’s good enough for her…

Within one of the Jalue packages you’ll find four herbal sachets and one water tight freezable cone. There are five steps that you’ll need to follow before you’re able to use this product, but the process is kind of fun.

For the first step you’ll need to steep one of the herbal sachets in 100ml of boiling water and leave it to cool. When the liquid is cool, remove the sachet and carefully pour it into the silicone cone. Once that’s done, pop this baby on its side in the freezer and leave it to freeze just as you would with a normal home made popsicle. Before applying it you’ll need to make sure that you’ve cleansed your face and neck thoroughly so that the ice therapy can really get to work on your skin. When your skin is fresh and clean, pat it dry with a nice, soft towel and then run the ice cone all over your face and neck in gentle circular motions. I know that this whole routine seems a little crazy and that rubbing an ice cone over your face might lead your family and friends to question what in the world you’re up to, but if you’re a beauty junkie this is a fun one to try.

The Jalue herbal sachets contain chamomile, sage, nettle, rose and oak bark, all of which are known to help to reduce any puffiness on your face and do a great job at calming and tightening your skin. Ice therapy is also proven to lessen the size and appearance of pores and wrinkles and give your skin a natural look of radiance.

The only negative thing that I have to say about this product is that I’m not a huge lover of the smell of the sachets. They just didn’t smell how I expected them to and in all honesty I found that a bit off putting. However if like me you’re not a fan of the scent of this stuff, rest assured that once it’s frozen you can’t really smell the herbs at all. Despite not loving the herby aroma, one of the things that I do really love about this product is that you can re use the sachets for up to one week before throwing them in the trash. Each Jalue Ice Therapy package contains four of the herbal sachets which means that there is enough product for one month’s use.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Ice Therapy and to be honest I didn’t think it would be something that I’d end up loving as much as I did. The process to the finished product does take quite a bit of effort so I don’t think I’ll be whipping up a Jalue ice cone to use every morning and night, but it’s certainly something that I can see myself indulging in on the weekends or during one of my spa nights. After using the ice cone my skin felt lovely and refreshed, so it’s definitely worth giving this stuff a go, just be aware that you might look like a bit of a weirdo while you’re applying it! Let me know if this interests you or if you’ve ever tried this type of treatment!
