Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum | Sephora ad

Finally, my baby arrived!!! And I'm absolutely delirious from happiness and anxiety. How can such a small thing can be the center of my universe and bring so much joy and frustration to my life!?

So anyway, let's get on with the real deal here, Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum.


Packaged in a white bottle with a sleek rose band around its cap, I'm already liking the outlook of this well-known brand (famous for its extensive use of natural ingredients in all their products like black tea, rose, sugar, lotus and such). 



What it claims:
Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum is a fast-absorbing fluid that intensely hydrates and retains moisture for a healthy-looking, glowing complexion. The soothing formula offers 24-hour moisture* and boosts the skincare ritual that follows.

Key Ingredients:
  • Rosewater helps to soothe and rose flower oil helps to nourish
  • Angelica leaf extract is known to help retain moisture**
  • Porphyridium cruentum, a “smart” algae, helps to deliver optimum moisture***
  • Hyaluronic acid helps attract and maintain moisture to enhance suppleness
  • Cucumber extract helps to soothe and cool the skin


Dispensed in semi-opaque liquidy form, the consistency is emollient enough to spread across my entire face without effort and I'm happy to report that my dehydrated skin soaks all of them products up. The soothing and calming rose scent is not overpowering nor is it those old-school-grandma-ish kind. I just love slapping this product on, no kidding.

After application, I do feel that my skin is smooth and supple with the dry tightness which tends to linger on my face after cleansing gone in a jiffy. As I've mentioned, my skin is totally lapping up the product.

I would highly recommend to use a moisturiser after this product to lock in the moisture and give yourself more barrier to the surroundings as with all serums, Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum helps boost and restore your skin's vitality and hydration.

June Jacobs Neroli Hydrating Mist | Sephora ad

I'm a bit on the fence with June Jacobs Neroli Hydrating Mist. Part of me love it and part of me is afraid to use it. Let me tell you more below...

So, the packaging (or the box rather) sucked me in because its pink and adorned with purple dotted with some mint. Like, its just too pretty for my own good. 


What it claims:

"Paraben and preservative free, this revitalising mist toner is enriched with Neroli oil, extracted from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree, known for its ability to stimulate cell regeneration. Powerful patent pending anti-oxidant blend of white, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry, pomegranate and grape seed extracts help to neutralize free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat the visible signs of premature aging."


What's in it:

"White, Red and Green Tea extracts combined with Goji Berry, Pomegranate and Grape Seed - Extracts help to neutralize free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat the visible signs of premature aging.

Bitter Orange Fruit Extract - Derived from the blossoms of the tree found in the south of France, it contains flavones, carotenoids and the alkaloids, synephrine and octopamine, which act as stimulants having cell regenerating qualities."





I really love how invigorating and refreshing this mist is. Its like citrusy but not too zesty as its being toned down by a herbally note (guess its the tea extract). And then the mist dispensed is fine enough to give you an even spread on your face thus you can definitely go generous with spritzing. The best part is you do feel the product after spraying, it doesn't evaporate into thin air and leave you with nothing on your skin. I really can't stand Mist products that disappear after a couple of seconds of application like it has done nothing.

Now, for the "I love this product but I can't use it right now" part. A huge BECAUSE, I am pregnant. The key ingredient, Neroli Oil is an essential oil and it is not recommended for preggers as there might cause some side effect to the baby. Hence, you can totally imagine how bummed out I was not being able to use the product right now.

Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice pick-me-up spray to freshen up or just to hydrate your skin in the middle of the day.

Ren Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel | Sephora ad

I have been on a look out for some cleansers that are more natural, non-vigorous and even helps hydrates my skin since I got pregnant. The cleansers that I'm currently using did none of those and its a pain in the butt to treat my flaky skin (especially the area under my lips). 

Lo and Behold!!!

Finally, my prayers are answered and here comes Ren Rosa Centifolia Cleansing Gel



Actually, the packaging doesn't look much to begin with. Sitting in a clear plastic-ky bottle (well, at least you can see how much product you have left), the packaging isn't much. However, do not let it fool you, there's just so much more this product has to offer. 

What it claims:

"A rose infused facial cleansing gel that will leave your skin thoroughly cleansed, refreshed and soothed. 
Results:
  • Gently removes dirt, pollution and make-up.
  • Balances, tones, soothes and reduces pore size without causing any tightness.
  • The perfect all rounder. Cleanses and hydrates for healthy skin metabolism."



Key ingredients for the cleansing gel:

  • - Polyphenols from Rosa Centifolia decongest the skin, soothe and protect facial vessels
  • - Polysaccharides from Aloe Vera retain moisture and soothe
  • - Rose Otto Oil from Damask Rose Petals calms and soothes


As you can see from the picture, the product is a clear type of gel with little bubbles contained within. I would first wet my face and with my wet fingers, rubbing the product between them, and massage onto my skin.

The first thing that hits me is the scent. The Rose Fragrance. Its heavenly I tell you. Well, I love Rose scented products to begin with so this is a definite winner for me. Its really calming and soothing without being overbearing or fake, just like applying roses directly to your skin.

Then after rinsing off the product, I immediately notice the condition of my skin. Its not drying or squeaky clean at all. I was on top of the moon. My skin has never been so smooth and plump/hydrated. Can't stop touching my face seriously and I didn't get those pesky flakes in the middle of the day. A huge thumbs up.

As if I'm not convinced that this is the perfect product me, I went ahead and Googled the product to check for compatibility of the product with pregnant women. Guess what, this product is suitable for pregnant women as it was said that Ren was actually specially created for the founder's pregnant wife!!! :O

OK, I only have good things to say about this product (except for the packaging though). Do take note though that its a little on the pricier side as you are only getting 150ml of products. However, with so many beneficial effects it has on my skin, I'm definitely making this my skincare staple.

Erborian Yuza Doudoune for Hands | Sephora ad

If you are unfamiliar with the brand, Erborian is a brand from both Paris and Seoul. Its Co-founders are from these 2 countries whereby successfully marrying the technology & high quality ingredients from Korea with innovative beauty rituals around the world.


Erborian Yuza Doudoune for Hands claims to:

Nourish and soften the delicate skin of the hands with IMMEDIATE EFFECTS as below:
- Nourishes and softens the delicate skin of hands
- Protects skin from external aggressions
- Provides instant comfort



Packaged in a bright yellow squeezy tube, the Key Natural Ingredients used in this product that keeps hands soft and smooth are: 

Yuza: Antioxidant, strengthens the skin barrier
Liquorice: Reduces the production of melanin – responsible for pigmentation marks 
Coconut Oil: Helps to protect, nourish and repair the skin



The product is dispensed as a yellow thick cream which is emollient enough to be spread on your hands. What I do love about this product is how fast my skin "drinks up" the products. I've counted, it literally took 20 seconds. o_O Talk about efficient guys. This makes it a very suitable day hand cream when you need to go to work or do daily household chores as it doesn't leave any sticky or slippery residue.

Another factor that I really enjoyed about this product is the scent. Its not too overpowering or sickly floral/sweet when applied. It has this soothing light citrusy fragrance that leaves your hand smelling all refreshed.

Well, if you want me to nit pick, I kind of wish the cream stayed a little longer on my hand so that I can feel it doing its magic moisturising and hydrating my hands. Weird I know, but oh well, that's just me.
