A naturally rose-scented, multipurpose beauty balm created with organic, cold-pressed rosehip oil, safflower, green tea seed, organic argan, frankincense, moringa, grapeseed, palmarosa & organic rose (there’s a double hit of the rose plant; it’s included here in two different forms!). For both cleansing and moisturising (of the face, lips, cuticles, everything!); a deliciously aromatic pot of natural nutrients with an irresistable honey-ish scent. As always, this product is free of animal-derived or synthetic ingredients and is very gentle. It’s truly delicious!
What does it feel like?
… Like a lightweight balm that melts into a luxurious oil in warm weather or when in contact with the skin. It sinks in beautifully.
Uses & Directions:
MULTIPURPOSE: Nourish | Cleanse | Highlight | Lips | Face | Body | Mask
– As a cleansing oil: massage a pea-sized amount into dry skin to loosen, lift & remove make up & dirt. Remove with a warm, damp cloth or pad, or just with water. Use in rotation (if you like) with the PURIFYING PRO-GLOW YELLOW GOLD CLEANSING BALM WITH TURMERIC, GREEN TEA, TEA TREE & MEADOWFOAM. (And click to read about how cleansing with oil works, even for oily skin!)
– As a moisturiser: apply to dry or damp skin (applying to damp skin can lock in the hydration), massage in & glow!
– As a mask (nourishing & moisturising): massage in and leave for as long as you like (overnight, if you like!) before massaging again and rinsing away.
ORGANIC, COLD-PRESSED ROSEHIP OIL: This is proudly the bulk of the formulation. Wonderful for reversing hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and scars. Its high anti-oxidant content improves texture and revitalizes the skin.
SAFFLOWER: Nutrient-rich, lightweight, deeply nourishing & easily absorbed. Softens and moisturises delicate, sensitive skin to leave a natural glow. Our bloodstream absorbs so much of what we apply topically; here lies pure goodness.
TEA PLANT: The tea plant is known for its high antioxidant content (meaning it fights free radical damage) and is anti-inflammatory. It’s a beautiful thing to connect with your skin, hence this page!
MORINGA: with over 70% Oleic acid (an omega 9 fatty acid), Moringa seed oil has excellent cleansing ability as well as being a powerful natural antioxidant. It moisturises without leaving a greasy feeling, and is good for fine lines and wrinkles as well as acne-prone skin.
GRAPESEED: Non-comodogenic (doesn’t clog pores), this clever oil is light and dreamy, balances sebum, moisturises and is said to restore collagen in the skin. Its linoleic acid helps strengthen cell membranes. It’s also astringent, meaning it tightens pores. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory – meaning it works on problem areas as well as preventing future ones.
ORGANIC ARGAN: One of my favourite things about this oil, is that, like the others carefully chosen for this blend, it doesn’t cause blockages, spots or oil build up. Full of antioxidants, vitamin E and essential fatty acids, many claim it boosts elasticity of the skin (keeping things looking fresh and vibrant) and it’s another balancing oil that helps keep your complexion on an even keel.
ORGANIC PALMAROSA: Palmarosa is a grass native to India, whose sent is reminiscent of rose (hence the name!). It’s been used widely for a variety of skin conditions, but notably assists in preventing inflammation and balancing sebum levels.
ORGANIC BULGARIAN ROSE: A wonderful, sweet & refreshing natural scent; not overpowering but delectably there. Rose is soothing, cooling and calming to the mind and body (not to mention a natural aphrodisiac).
ROSEMARY: a favorite of Paracelsus, a renowned German-Swiss physician and botanist, who made significant contributions to the understanding of herbal medicine during the 16th century. It has lightly-toning, antiseptic and anti-microbial qualities.
LAVENDER: Anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and gentle, lavender is renowned for its soothing, calming natural aroma.
ROSE GERANIUM: Distilled from the flowers, leaves and stalks, and traditionally used by the Egyptians to promote radiant skin, this aromatic and sweet oil is rosy and uplifting, its aroma alone enough to earn its presence in this toner… But, just for fun, it is also said to improve circulation, balance sebum levels, help kill the bacteria responsible for acne, calm irritation and fade blemishes. Did I mention it smells beautiful?
PATCHOULI: A woody, earthy note with natural properties of astringency and calming. Soothes and tones skin and stimulates the generation of new cells.
FRANKINCENSE: The healing qualities of frankincense have long been known. Steam distilled from the resin of the Boswelia genus of trees, it has a rather regal scent which is also calming and uplifting, and it’s even thought to lift and tighten skin naturally.
VITAMIN E: an added (natural) extra dose for even more antioxidant power; why not?
