I am a huge rose lover – in gardens, vases and in my skincare. Roses are chock full of delicious skincare stuff, in addition to smelling wonderful. Kosmea Australia is a skincare company that has built it’s line around organic rosehip oil, as well as the finest herbal, plant and flower extracts. You can read more about their philosophy here. Why rosehip oil? If you’ve ever used Kosmea Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, I don’t have to tell you how incredible it is. My skin adores rosehip oil, and when I started using Kosmea Rosehip Oil, it actually only took a couple days to see a difference in my skin. I use it around three times a week, at bedtime, and my skin loves it. It sinks in and plumps up the skin, improving skin tone and texture, and makes your skin glow.
“Rosehip oil is like a multivitamin for your skin: rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that are essential for skin health. Rosehip oil is a naturally rich source of essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids include omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. They are vital for our general health and the health of our skin — but our bodies are unable to produce them. Essential fatty acids help to regenerate skin cells and to repair damaged skin tissue.
Rosehip oil is rich in a natural source of vitamin A, known as trans-retinoic acid. Research shows that topical trans-retinoic acid is effective in helping to prevent premature ageing caused by sun exposure. Rosehip oil is rich in a range of antioxidants, including beta-carotene and lycopene, which help to protect and repair skin from premature ageing caused by modern living.
Their rosewater mist is in my Top 5 – adore it. It has a fresh green rose-y natural fragrance that refreshes and soothes both the mood and skin. My skin loves rosewater and I like to keep it happy. I use Kosmea Hydrating Rosewater Mist head to toe, after the shower and sometimes also after I moisturize. It’s so nourishing and adds a glow with the beauty of gently distilled rose petals while it quenches dry skin. Love!
The Kosmea Rose Body Lotion is so soft and moisturizing, I just adore it. It’s a worthy replacement of my old love, Rose Milk Body Lotion, long gone. There is a current version of Rose Milk, but it’s not the same at all. Kosmea Rose Body Lotion is full of rose, rosehip oil and shea butter leaving soft silky skin that smells ever so softly of rose. It’s not a strong or cloying scent at all, and is gone after an hour or so. It does layer beautifully with the Hydrating Rosewater Mist, which is why the Rose Body Collection is a great set!
