Saturday Skin Care: MuLondon Organic Rose Moisturiser

When Boris contacted me to review the Organic Rose Moisturiser, I was very excited (and may even have let out a little shriek) because I had just read Sarah’s rave review on this product and was dying to try it.

Product Description by MuLondon:

 Luxury 100% organic face moisturiser with Rose Otto oil, Rosehip Extract and Rosemary. This amazing trio will pamper, balance and nourish dry, irritated and sensitive skin.

These precious herbal extracts and oils are carefully balanced and hand-blended in a base of certified organic Shea butter, Coconut butter and Golden Jojoba oil. This creates a unique, rich, divinely fragranced and creamy balm that is packed full of nutrients for your skin. No water is added at any stage – so you get pure, undiluted herbal power that is to be used sparingly.

Price: 10 pounds for 30mL and 19 pounds for 60mL
Availability: on the MuLondon website


The scent:
It smells like roses- REAL roses, not the synthetic sickly sweet fragrance that you might find in a cheap perfume (or Rosebud Salve, ick), and the scent develops and sweetens a little on your skin once it’s warmed. There is also a green, herbaceous note from the rosemary extract, which fades once you rub the product between your hands.
The MuLondon moisturiser is very different from every other moisturiser that I’ve tried in that it has no water content at all. It’s kind of a whipped balm, which is semi solid at room temperature but once you take a pea sized amount and rub it between your palms (as directed), it becomes liquid and at this point you massage it into your skin. 
It’s very rich, but when I use the recommended amount I find it readily absorbs into the skin and does not feel greasy (although on oilier skin types it may be a little heavy, in which case you might want to try the other moisturisers in their range).
Mulondon Organic Rose moisturise straight out of jar. note: This is ALOT of product, which is just to show you how it looks. I would only use a half of that on my face

MuLondon Organic Rose Moisturiser- warmed.
I’ve been using this product every second night or so on my face, and daily on my decollete- and it’s a great emollient moisturiser, especially when used on damp skin straight after a shower. My skin is loving the jojoba oil, shea butter and rose hip oil in this.- feeling so soft and nourished after each use. 
Like Sarah, I don’t expect this product to have dramatic anti-aging effects, I’m a big believer in having multiple skin care products that address specific issues so I would layer this on top of any serum that I decide to use.
A note on ingredients:
Boris really goes all out in sourcing great ingredients. The Rose Otto essential oil AKA Attar of Roses (used in this moisturiser) is one of the most expensive essential oils available because it takes approximately 4000kg of roses, to make 1kg of the essential oil via steam distillation.
The much cheaper Rose Absolute, used in other formulations, is extracted using a solvent, and the yield is much higher but the purity and potency is much lower. 
Because this formula is waterless, it actually gets away with not using a preservative (microbes cannot grow in a waterless environment) which is very clever!
Full ingredient list:
Vitellaria Paradoxa (Shea Butter)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Butter)*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil)*, Rosa Damascena (Rose Otto Essential Oil)*, Rosa Canina (Rosehip Extract)* , Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary Extract)*
note: this product was sent to me by Boris for consideration.

    I view something really interesting about your web blog so I bookmarked .

  28. Zune and iPod: Utmost All those assess the Zune towards the Touch, still following seeing how slender and surprisingly minor and mild it is, I contemplate it toward be a as a substitute distinctive hybrid that combines traits of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s Quite colorful and stunning OLED screen is a bit lesser than the contact screen, but the participant by itself feels quite a little bit more compact and lighter. It weighs relating to 2/3 as a lot, and is substantially scaled-down inside width and peak, although being simply just a hair thicker.

  29. You made some decent points there. I regarded on the internet for the issue and located most people will go along with with your website.

  30. Zune and iPod: Optimum All those examine the Zune towards the Touch, nonetheless the moment viewing how thin and incredibly reduced and mild it is, I take it to be a very unique hybrid that brings together traits of possibly the Contact and the Nano. It truly is Pretty colourful and gorgeous OLED show is a little bit more compact than the touch screen, nevertheless the player itself feels Really a bit lesser and lighter. It weighs over 2/3 as significantly, and is appreciably scaled-down in just width and peak, despite the fact that being just a hair thicker.

  31. In between me and my partner we’ve owned a lot more MP3 players higher than the several years than I can rely, together with Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, and many others. But, the last couple of a long time I’ve resolved down to a single line of gamers. Why? Due to the fact I was delighted toward come across how well-designed and exciting to employ the underappreciated (and commonly mocked) Zunes are.

  32. blast cube says:

    Utterly indited written content, regards for selective information. “He who establishes his argument by noise and command shows that his reason is weak.” by Michel de Montaigne.

  33. The Zune concentrates on being a Transportable Media Player. Not a world wide web browser. Not a sport machine. Potentially in the future it’ll do even superior inside all those areas, yet for already it’s a Great course toward organize and hear towards your audio and films, and is devoid of peer inside of that respect. The iPod’s strengths are its net viewing and programs. If those people stable added compelling, probably it is your ideal preference.

  34. ?????????? says:


  35. The clean Zune browser is surprisingly very good, nevertheless not as Wonderful as the iPod’s. It functions very well, nevertheless is not as prompt as Safari, and includes a clunkier interface. If you sometimes program upon taking the website browser that is not an issue, nevertheless if you are planning in direction of study the website alot from your PMP then the iPod’s more substantial display and far better browser could be necessary.

  36. Apple presently is made up of Rhapsody as an app, which is a superior start, nevertheless it is by now hampered as a result of the inability towards shop locally on your iPod, and incorporates a dismal 64kbps bit selling price. If this variations, then it will rather negate this comfort for the Zune, but the 10 songs per thirty day period will however be a significant in addition within just Zune Pass’ want.

  37. The Zune concentrates upon becoming a Transportable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a activity machine. Perhaps in the foreseeable future it’ll do even far better inside of all those areas, still for now it can be a Great path in direction of arrange and listen to your music and flicks, and is with no peer within that respect. The iPod’s advantages are its net viewing and applications. If all those solid even more powerful, potentially it is your most straightforward conclusion.

  38. Thank you for writing this awesome article. I’m a long time reader but I’ve never been compelled to leave a comment. I subscribed to your blog and shared this on my Facebook. Thanks again for a great article!

  39. Arms down, Apple’s application keep wins via a mile. It is really a large selection of all varieties of applications vs a instead sad option of a handful for Zune. Microsoft is made up of programs, especially inside the realm of video games, however I’m not absolutely sure I might require in the direction of bet on the long run if this part is essential toward on your own. The iPod is a a great deal far better alternative within just that scenario.

  40. This is becoming a little bit much more subjective, but I a great deal like the Zune Current market. The interface is vibrant, is made up of much more aptitude, and some cool characteristics which includes ‘Mixview’ that make it possible for by yourself suddenly look at equivalent albums, tunes, or other end users similar towards what you happen to be listening in direction of. Clicking upon 1 of those people will heart upon that product or service, and a different fixed of “neighbors” will come into perspective, enabling yourself in direction of navigate near investigating by comparable artists, tunes, or customers. Chatting of customers, the Zune “Social” is on top of that excellent pleasurable, making it possible for your self uncover many others with shared choices and becoming close friends with them. Your self then can hear to a playlist developed dependent upon an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening in direction of, which is much too enjoyable. Those people nervous with privateness will be relieved in direction of notice on your own can keep away from the public versus seeing your unique listening habits if your self consequently opt for.

  41. Among me and my spouse we have owned far more MP3 avid gamers above the many years than I can count, together with Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, and so forth. But, the remaining few yrs I have solved down toward one line of avid gamers. Why? Considering that I was pleased toward uncover how well-designed and enjoyable in the direction of employ the underappreciated (and extensively mocked) Zunes are.

  42. I’ll gear this critique to Two types of people in america: present Zune homeowners who are thinking about an improve, and Those attempting in direction of make a decision concerning a Zune and an iPod. (There are other avid gamers well worth thinking about out there, together with the Sony Walkman X, but I count on this presents on your own enough info in the direction of generate an conscious alternative of the Zune vs avid gamers other than the iPod line as nicely.)

  43. Sorry for the huge study, yet I’m incredibly loving the fresh Zune, and assume this, as properly as the Good opinions some other All those comprise penned, will support on your own make a decision if it is really the straight choice for your self.
