When I saw this little set free with Marie Clair I knew I had to get it even just for the freebies. Having never tried Aromatherapy Associates as they are just way out of my price range for every day use I decided it would be a nice treat and see if I thought they are worth it. You get three miniature bottles no sachet size so even good if you just use them for traveling with. The daft thing is without this being in Marie Clair other than the bath oils I didn’t even know they had a skin care range.These are all from the Hydrating Rose range.
Renewing Rose Cleanser
10 ml worth £1.25 or 200 ml for £25
For me this could be any cleanser, there’s nothing wrong with it but there wasn’t anything that made it different. It felt nice a thick creamy cleanser, the rose scent wasn’t overly strong and I didn’t have any reactions to it. It just had no spark that made me think this is worth what I would be paying for it. Maybe long-term use would show different results but this only lasted 3 or 4 uses so I can’t say otherwise.
Triple Rose Renewing Moisturiser
5 ml worth £5.60 or 50 ml for £56
This was by far my favourite out of the three as it was so hydrating but is also the most expensive. Well worth it if you can afford it and have crazy dry skin like I do. Very few moisturisers stop my Psoriasis on my eyebrows flaking during the day but this worked. I even applied it under my eye where I have a dry patch of skin that concealer likes to cling to and it fixed that too. I didn’t have any stinging when I got it in my eye not that you should do that I’m just a bit haphazard. I’m still using this one just very sparingly where I need it. May pick up a second issue to get a little more of this one.
Rose Face Mask
15 ml worth £5.50 or 100 ml for £37
This is a gel face mask which for me is quite strange to get used to. I’m always with the clay masks and this is odd for me. It has the rose scent and leaving it on for 10 minutes the scent wasn’t strong here just a floral hint. My skin did feel soft afterwards but beyond that I’m not sure how long that lasts as I moisturise after any way. I couldn’t see any major change but like with the others more use may make a difference.It has however peaked my interest in other gel masks which I’m looking into that are more in my budget.
From this experience if I did get chance to purchase something it would be the Triple Rose Renewing Moisturiser that is the star of the trio. I still would love to try out the oils and maybe if I’m lucky at Christmas I might get a bottle to try as a treat for myself.
