Aside from reading a product’s ingredients list, one of the things I always do when testing new skin care is to smell it. I love products that smell like roses because it reminds me of spring and summer. Even though it’s almost fall, these two products make me feel like it’s still summer whenever I’m applying them!
If you like floral fragrance in your skin care, especially rose-scented products, then you might fall in love with these two products from Korean skin care brand AROMATICA. Read on for my full review.
Key ingredients: Organic rose water, rose essential oil
What it claims to do: Deeply hydrate the skin and give it a glow
My experience: Most serums I’ve used come in a 30ml bottle so I was surprised when I saw that this one comes in a 100ml bottle, which is a generous amount! I’ve been incorporating this serum into my morning routine for a month now, and I haven’t even gone halfway through the bottle! I imagine it’ll take me a few months to use the entire thing.
The Reviving Rose Infusion Serum is formulated with organic rose water and rose essential oil, which gives it a beautiful and elegant rose scent. The scent isn’t overpowering and it fades quickly as it absorbs into my skin. I’m also impressed by the serum’s texture as it’s not sticky at all, and although it has a light pink hue from the bottle, it’s actually clear when applied.
It’s a very lightweight serum for me, which makes it ideal for my daytime regimen. Upon application, I always notice that my skin appears more radiant, hydrated and soft. This serum also never fails to soften the appearance of some of my smile lines, which is a plus.
What it claims to do: Improve the skin’s elasticity and lock in moisture
My experience: Similar to the serum, the Reviving Rose Infusion Cream also boasts an elegant rose scent. This cream has a very soft and buttery texture that glides so smoothly onto my skin. I don’t have to worry about my T-zone areas looking oily by midday because this cream makes my complexion look glowy and never greasy.
I’ve also been incorporating this into my morning routine and, when combined with the serum, the amount of glow that I get is unlike anything I’ve experienced. Now that we’re entering the colder seasons, I could use all the glow I can get as my skin tends to start looking dull during winter.
The Reviving Rose Infusion Cream also does an A+ job of locking in moisture since it contains organic shea butter and babassu seed oil. It looks like I won’t have to worry about dry patches throughout fall and winter as long as I have this in my routine!
Even though its products are rose-scented, AROMATICA doesn’t use synthetic fragrances, so what you’re getting comes from natural ingredients. Both products are also vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.
In addition to loving both of these products, I adore the packaging. Both products come in glass packaging that looks sleek on my skin care shelfie. I also appreciate the fact that AROMATICA uses 100% recyclable packaging and opts for sustainable glass instead of plastic packaging.
Overall, the Reviving Rose Infusion Serum and Cream are perfect for keeping my skin deeply nourished with a side of glow. Although I don’t think their formula is potent enough for mature skin, they definitely deliver at softening my premature fine lines. So if you’re looking for products that help with premature skin aging and give your skin a youthful look, then these two are worth a try.
