Fresh Rose Hydration Cream Review

I’m always trying out new skincare creams because I feel like my skin likes the change.  Unlike my sister who remains loyal to her favorite facial creams, I like to switch it up and change my skincare when the bottle is empty.  I use a lot of Fresh products because they smell so good.  I do watch out for parabens and surprisingly enough, for a product line called Fresh, some of their products contain parabens. For this post, I wanted to  write a quick Fresh Rose hydration cream review. I purchased this 50 ml (1.5 oz) jar of Fresh Rose Hydration Cream from Sephora for $40.00.

A little bit about this product:

”What it is:
A lightweight gel-cream infused with soothing rosewater and nourishing rose flower oil that delivers intense 24-hour moisture* for petal-soft skin. *Instrumental test on 10 subjects.

Solutions for:
– Dryness
– Uneven texture
– Elasticity

What it is formulated to do:
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream delivers intense 24-hour moisture for normal to dry skin. The lightweight formula uses time-release technology to encourage ideal hydration levels by attracting and sealing in moisture throughout the day. An advanced combination of hyaluronic acids helps to increase moisture for deep hydration to support healthy skin elasticity. Rosewater soothes while rose flower oil nourishes. Enriched with antioxidant vitamin E, this soothing face cream provides non-stop daily hydration for petal soft skin,” (www.sephora.com).

This facial cream is thick and creamy, perfect for hydrating dry skin.  I am usually hesitant to use such a rich cream for my morning routine but despite its thickness, the Rose Hydration cream soaks right in, leaving my skin hydrated but not oily or gloppy. It’s great for use when going makeup free or under my usual makeup.  I also love the light smell of this cream, reminding me of rosewater, the ones you actually drink. Of course, I also love that this Fresh Rose cream is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates.
