Why should we compartmentalize our lives so much, separating how we treat ourselves on a daily basis, versus that once-in-a-while indulgence at a spa? If we used more quality ingredients on our skin and included aromatherapy into our quotidian activities, maybe we wouldn’t have to run off to the spa in the first place!
Pampered Skin Care incorporates organics, aromatherapy, hand-steamed hydrosols and homeopathic remedies into luxurious skin and body care. They are also available as a monthly subscription box. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!
Whipped Rose Petal Skin Wash has a whipped creme-gel consistency. It’s sudsy! It has a spicy, old-fashioned roses scent. It rinses easily, but doesn’t leave your skin tight or leave a residue. It’s hydrating without a greasy feel.
They make the wash with rose petals, Rose Otto hydrosol and Rose Absolute for a rich, natural fragrance. They note that rose calms and soothes the mind. The floral sugars are good for sensitive skin. The wash also includes glycerin, Vitamin E, aloe vera, coconut oil and avocado oil.
Fountain of Youth Hyaluronic Serum is a creme-gel with a faint fresh rose plant scent. It has a number of uses, including as a deep conditioner for your complexion at night, to ease stress lines and rough patches. Raspberry seed oil add antioxidants and geranium oil handles difficult to treat blemishes and other ugly skin issues.
100% Pure Rose Water has no witch hazel or glycerin, so you can use it more liberally around your face without fear. Some use rose water alone as a “moisturizer”, due to the healing sugars of roses. What a great idea for summertime!
Rosehip Nourishing Lip Oil is quite a unique product. It’s fun! They package it in a 70’s style rollerball. It’s got a sweet rose candy flavor, but works hard with rosehip seed oil — packed with Vitamin C and lycopene — along with almond oil and grapeseed oil.
Anti-Stress Rollerball is convenient and discreet — because we’re all under stress! This blend has lavender, ylang ylang, bergamot (which they claim can relieve stress as strong as diazepam!). It smells light and gingery to me.
Silky Hand and Body Lotion absorbs into your skin instantly, but with a satin feel. It’s loaded with oils, aloe, fatty acids and shea butter, along with avocado, chamomile and Vitamin E. It has a rich, spicy floral scent.
Replenishing Lip Treatment is unscented and unflavored. It’s a softer butter in stick form, incorporating nutritious cold-pressed apricot kernel oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and beeswax. No-nonsense healing!
Silky Herbal Dusting Powder really is silky and light, with a select your own fragrance option. There’s no talc or corn starch, but it has herbal powders and clays.
Rose Kaolin Clay & Rosewater Face Mask incorporates pink kaolin clay — considered the most mild for beauty purposes. This is a smooth, sheer, silky mask — not gritty or cakey. They advise that you can also put it on acne areas, let it dry and rinse it off. Along with the high quality rose water, it has zinc, copper, magnesium, castor oil and rice brand oil.
Floating Rose Petal Beauty Oil – where won’t you use it? It has light oils — non greasy — but it still has some richness, body. You can use it on your face, decolletage, in a bath or as a massage oil! It has a very, very light fragrance and is gorgeous in the bottle. It incorporates grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, rosehip seed oil and Bulgarian Rose Absolute.
Liquid Gold Rejuvenating Moisture Rich Day & Night Cream has a thinner lotion consistency and is unscented. It absorbs right away and you’ll be able to apply makeup on top without issue. You can even use it around your eyes — how convenient! It contains ingredients that stimulate your own skin to produce natural collagen and elastin: carrot seed extract, grape seed extract, pomegranate seed extract, algae extract, apple sugars, shea butter, green tea extract and fatty acids. This feels comforting on skin, not greasy or itchy.
CALM Body Butter has nutritious oils like coconut, hemp, jojoba, magnesium, lavender. It’s very silky and hydrating, with a fresh herbal fragrance.
