I seem to be on fire with testing out my samples lately. For today’s post though, I want to talk about the Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Triple Rose Renewing Moisturiser, which I have in the sample size version. The full size version of this can be found on Amazon* for a little over £52.00, or you can order from the brand’s website, which can be found here for £58.00. Honestly, at this price, this is not a product I will spend so much money on, at least not while I have a very tight budget.
However, as I do have this sample at hand, I want to talk about my experience with it if you have the budget and are looking for a new moisturiser for your skincare routine. So I want to start off by mentioning this is part of Aromatherapy Associates’ Hydrating line of skincare products, and you can view the entire line on their website here. I have also posted about the cleanser from this line as well, which you can read here.
So the moisturiser claims to:
“combin[e/ing] essential oils of three unique roses from Morocco, Turkey and Bulgaria to rejuvenate your skin. Keeps your complexion looking youthful, radiant and full of vitality.”
These are some really nice claims that I think for most people with dry to even mildly combination/oily skin types, offers some really nice results. Off the bat I’m going to say that the presence of rose certainly takes form in the scent of this product. For me, the scent is very strong and uncomfortable and something that immediately turned me off, especially as roses are not a scent I’m super fond of, however, you may like this if you’re not sensitive to fragrance or like rose scents.
As for the texture of the product, this is definitely a thicker cream than I would normally apply to my skin. I used this only on my cheeks and jawline area, as I didn’t feel comfortable using this on the oiliest and most congested areas of my face. It spreads easily over the skin, although it does leave a slightly sticky texture to the skin shortly after application. On dry skin types, I think this isn’t a bad thing, as it does go away very quickly, but on my oily skin, I do find it is too heavy for my skin type. Which is why I suggest this product for dry to normal skin types, and for oily skin types to leave this be.
Overall I don’t think this is a bad product, just definitely not ideal for my skin type. It doesn’t irritate my skin to use it, but it doesn’t work well for oily skin, especially if you need to tackle excess oil at the same time. However, I do think this is a suitable option for very dry to normal skin types that need that immediate boost of moisture to their skin. I do think it’s a very expensive product though, and not one I will be purchasing the full size of any time soon, although maybe someday from one of their other skincare lines that are better suited for my skin type.
