I realized that I should hurry up and review my jar of The Organic Pharmacy Rose Plus Anti-Ageing Face Cream before I finished it. I hit the bottom of the jar, and while I still have a few weeks left before it is empty, I thought it wise to talk about it while I am still using, and coveting, the last bits of this tremendous jar. I should preface this by stating that I have every intention of purchasing a replacement as soon as I make a dent in a few other face creams, but this one is worth every cent!
About The Organic Pharmacy,
Founded in 2002 by pharmacist Margo Marrone and her husband Francesco, The Organic Pharmacy skincare brand evolved from the duo’s successful London-based chain of herbal, homeopathic dispensaries and wellness clinics. Developed for a range of skin types, the comprehensive collection of organic and fair-trade products treats, repairs, and improves a broad spectrum of issues. One of the brand’s first products, the Carrot Butter Cleanser, is celebrated for its velvety texture and blend of all-natural ingredients which gently lift dirt and makeup without stripping the skin.
The Organic Pharmacy Rose Plus Anti-Aging Face Cream is a phenomenal, ultra-potent antioxidant-rich anti-aging face cream that is very effective, makes a visible difference, and does so without harmful chemicals. As you can see from the picture at the bottom of this post, I am a big fan of The Organic Pharmacy, and I always have several of their products in my weekly, if not daily, skincare product rotation.
Rose Plus Anti-Aging Face Cream is a light to mid-weight face cream that is concentrated and that sinks into the skin immediately. This nutrient-rich cream leaves behind no greasy film, but instead leaves skin with a healthy glow. It is deeply hydrating, it improves micro-circulation, it scavenges free-radicals, and it renders skin soft, supple and smooth. After sustained use, it softens the appearance of fine lines, gently exfoliates dead skin cells, and reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Skin appears lifted and rejuvenated, and this is honestly about as perfect as an anti-aging cream could be. It has a warm, earthy aroma that is natural rather than artificial smelling, and it calms the senses as it sinks into the skin.
According to The Organic Pharmacy,

It helps reduce and reverse sun exposure damage and improves micro circulation, restoring hydration and elasticity.
