Product Review: Happy Valentines with Aromatica Rose Skincare Line

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! So synonymous with Valentine’s Day are roses, that I’ve decided to write a blog on my love affair with the incredible Rose Skincare Line from the popular Korean cosmetic brand, Aromatica. Formulated for dry skin, the Aromatica Rose skincare line has been a saviour to me and so many Buttermilk customers, helping us through the cold months and sealing our dry skin. I have combination skin which tends to get oily in the summer and in need of much moisture, especially on my cheeks, in the winter. As well as having combination skin, it’s also prone to breakouts, so I use these K-Beauty products whenever my skin is particularly dry and this line has been amazing. It creates a barrier and seals in moisture, quickly repairing and restoring my skin.

Why I heart the Aromatica Rose Skincare Line

Correction, it’s not just the Rose Skincare line I love, but Aromatica the brand and all of their products. I met with Aromatica in Korea some time ago and it’s clear how incredibly proud they are of their brand and their products. After sampling them myself, I quickly learned that they have every right to be. We user group tested Aromatica’s products here in the UK and it was the one skincare line where we didn’t have a single bit of negative feedback. Even a few people who don’t like the smell of Rose found the scent to be gentle and I quote, “not at all like an old lady!” I got the feeling these products were going to popular in the UK and I wasn’t wrong. Aromatica products are amongst our best sellers. There are three products in the Rose line: a serum, a fluid (light moisturiser) and cream (thick moisturiser). All of which are organic, anti-ageing and specially formulated with Bulgarian rose damascena oil, giving a warm and floral scent. I promise they smell beautifully floral and not at all like an ‘old lady’!

Who is it for?

Those with dry skin or customers with combination skin who have been experiencing a period of dry skin and need to restore their dry patches and brighten skin tone. As the products are natural and organic they are also perfect for those with sensitive skin. If you have very oily skin, I highly recommend Aromatica’s Sea Daffodil Aqua Gel Cream and Toner instead of the Rose line. Aromatica’s packaging is stunning and the bottles are a beautiful frosted glass, so they make a fantastic gift. Aromatica Rose set

'Safe yet Powerful' is Aromatica’s philosophy on skincare.

Aromatica was established with a quest to be 100% pure, natural and safe. The founder, Jerry Kim, is Korean but whilst living in Australia he discovered the importance of natural ingredients. Jerry Kim had a passionate belief that beauty should be honest and natural, not synthetic, and this has been their inspiration for over a decade. Aromatica source the very best ingredients from all over the world and the finest essential oils native to the source location. It’s this dedication to using the best ingredients that I think really shows in the exceptional quality of their products. With a huge following in the US, this Korean organic skincare line is sold at Macy’s and Urban Outfitters. Aromatica’s products are manufactured in their ECOCERT certified facility, so are credited for their organic manufacturing process and is the only Korean beauty brand to earn EWG’s Skin-deep Champion Status!

What products are in the Aromatica Rose skincare line?

Aromatica Rose Absolute First Serum £28

Aromatica serum A big bottle at 130ml Aromatica’s highly concentrated boosting serum is formulated with 79% organic aloe vera which helps to restore and protect the balance of your skin. This anti-ageing serum helps protect the skin with antioxidants and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I was hooked on Aromatica’s Rose Absolute First Serum for months, my skin felt brighter, healthier and radiant after using this serum. Lighter than most serums (please see the picture above of the consistency), it boosts and gives gorgeous dewy skin without feeling too heavy.

Aromatica Rose Absolute Vital Fluid £30

Aromatica fluid Aromatica’s Rose Absolute Vital Fluid is a light dual action lotion containing organic aloe vera leaf extract to beautifully hydrate the skin. Golden jojoba oil and organic shea butter keep the skin healthy by providing rich nutrients to protect the skin. A double action moisturiser that contains adenosine and niacinamide to brighten the skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. If you have dry skin, then Aromatica’s Rose Absolute Vital Fluid is the perfect light moisturiser for the summer months and morning moisturiser in the winter. It’s perfect for those with combination skin experiencing some dryness and dehydration of their skin in the colder months. It has a pump to dispense the correct amount into your hand, a little goes a long way, this bottle lasts for ages!

Aromatica Rose Absolute Vital Cream £35

Aromatica Fluid Aromatica’s Rose Absolute Vital Cream helps nourish and revitalize your skin overnight. As a thick cream I would only recommend this product to those with dry skin, who can use this product morning and evening. I would only recommend to those with combination skin if they are experiencing a period of dry skin and to use it overnight, which is what I do. The formula is rich in rosehip, evening primrose oil and avocado oils enriched with vitamin E to nourish and revitalise dehydrated skin. This multifunctioning cream has 7 herb extracts and adenosine to brighten and help ease fine lines and wrinkles. You can never start too early with anti-ageing creams, so these products are not just for mature skin! The pot comes with a little spatula to keep the cream hygienic and scoop out the right amount.
