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 http://www.mulondon.com/

 




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.
Texture: 
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.
