FRESH Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream Review

A dozen Roses on Valentine's Day? Nah, I'd rather treat my skin to FRESH Rose Cream. I have spent much of Winter trying out new moisturizers in an attempt to combat dry skin. We rarely experience such cold, dry weather here so this was new territory for me. After becoming hooked on FRESH Rose Face Mask and the Sugar Lip Treatment I wasn't at all hesitant to give the Rose Cream a go. They had me at Deep Hydration!

FRESH Rose Deep Hydration Cream is a lightweight gel-cream infused with soothing rosewater and nourishing rose flower oil that delivers intense 24-hour moisture for petal-soft skin. The lightweight formula uses time-release technology to encourage ideal hydration levels by attracting and sealing in moisture throughout the day. Exactly what I need right now!

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.

This moisturizer feels luxurious straight from the gorgeous packaging and it smells divine! The subtle rose scent is indulgent and natural. The cream is lightweight and sinks in to the skin immediately. I love that I can use this at night and wake up with super soft skin as well as wear it under my makeup during the day.

For being such an intensely hydrating moisturizer it doesn't feel heavy at all. It gives a soft, non-greasy finish. Having sensitive skin this does not irritate my skin at all. It nixes those dry patches with out any added oiliness to the T-zone and does not break me out. I feel like this will work wonders for all skin types.

I am extremely pleased with how well this face cream is working out for my combination skin. My skin just feels healthy and even has a little bit of a glow to it even during these cold grey days. Treat yourself to Roses in the form of long-lasting gorgeous skin, you will not be disappointed!

BOXYCHARM Galentine's Day Box Review

BOXYCHARM is showing us major Galentine's Day love with their February Box! I wasn't that in love with last month's box, but they have totally redeemed themselves with this one. For $21/mo. BoxyCharm gives you 5 Full Size Beauty items with a retail value over $100.

OMNIA Eye Kit by Royal & Langknickel ($29.95)
OMNIA Gold and Rose Gold Brushes were developed with the natural hair purist in mind and features meticulously selected natural hair of the finest quality for impeccable performance. These are beautiful brushes! I love the gold duo and they are super soft and dense.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow Pans ($12)
A highly-pigmented high-end shadow for half the price without sacrificing quality. This Makeup Geek eyeshadow can be  used alone of placed in a Z-palette to build your own custom palette. I received the shades Prom Night and Cherry Cola. The shades will vary depending on your box. This is my first time trying MG eyeshadows.

I really like Prom Night, it's a pretty cool toned shimmering taupe that looks beautiful on green eyes. Cherry Cola is a deep matte burgundy. Both formula's were buttery and pigmented. I can see myself buying more of these, nice eyeshadows and affordably priced.

Juice Beauty The Reflecting Gloss ($15)
Shimmer your lips in brilliant color with this reflecting gloss that contains a blend of organic antioxidant-rich acai & goji berries, minerals and sweet-agave for the most brilliant shine on Earth. I love Juice Beauty skincare so I was excited to get my first makeup product from them. Fig is a very pretty shimmery bronze berry gloss. With shimmer mettalic lips on trend for Spring I am counting down the days till I can wear this.

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying ($79)
HOLY COW at BoxyCharm giving us a FULL SIZE Dr. Brandt skincare product in this box! That is amazing! I am a huge fan of Dr. Brandt skincare, I use the PoreDermabransion scrub regularly. This Age Defying formula contains aluminum oxide crystals, lactic acid, and soothing botanicals to polish away dead skin cells, provide a radiant, healthy look, and smooth skin's texture. Also included is a coupon for 25% off your next order at dr. brandt. I used this for the first time last night and I love it even more than PoreDermabrasion. It has that same fine crystal microdermabrasion, but instead of a matte blurred finish it gives a healthy glow to the skin. Very nice for aging or dry skin types, and it leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft.

Small Z Palette ($14)
Completely customize this Small Z-Palette, made exclusively for BOXYCHARM, features an open-faced, magnetic base that allows you to easily switch out shades and products as often as you like! This pint-size Palette will fit just about anywhere and fits up to 9 standard-sized round pans. I love how small and cute this palette is, yet it still holds plenty of eyeshadows to do more than one look with. I know I will be taking this with me traveling!

Who needs Chocolates and Roses when you can have a BOXYCHARM Galentine's Day? February's box was amazing! I feel like the products that they offer just keep getting better and better. I loved everything in this one, and wow at that $79 Dr. brandt scrub!
