Beauty product of the week: Aromatherapy Associates Rose Cleanser and Skin Tonic
These products have given me the clearest skin of my life.
Why we love this product
Okay, so technically this is a review of two products, but I think they generate the best results when used together.
I've never been big on toners. I know why you're supposed to use them. Toners can help shrink your pores and remove excess oil. I've tried a few and the effects have never been noticeable enough to convince me to add another step to my beauty routine.
However, I've been using the Aromatherapy Associates Rose Skin Tonic in conjunction with the Renewing Rose Cleanser for three weeks now and I have noticed a massive difference in my skin.
I don't have acne exactly, my skin is pretty clear. What I am prone to is little lumps and bumps that sit under the skin. They're not red or inflamed, but they make my skin look horribly rough especially in the sun. This congestion also makes wearing highlighter a nightmare. Instead of giving a healthy glow, highlighting products show off all the bumps, making my face resemble The Alps more than skin.
But after only a week of using this toner tonic, all my under-the-skin congestion started to seriously clear up.
And it's not like I've been using cheap cleansers or toners in the past. My last three cleaners have been from pricey, high-quality and reputable brands. But these products by Aromatherapy Associates are the first I've tried that have actually managed to clear that congestion.
The cleanser is creamy and gentle. It's not drying at all, but it also manages to rid your face of all makeup. The tonic is lightly astringent but also very hydrating and calming. The subtle rose fragrance of both is also a highlight for me, it smells pretty and soothing without being overpowering.
If you have congested skin, these products really worked for me and I think you should give them a go too.
The Rose Skin Tonic retails for $50 and the Renewing Rose Cleanser retails for $60, so they're not exactly the most affordable products, but they're also not outside the realms of affordability.
