The rose collection saved my skin. I was blessed with porcelain skin, even tone, a blemish once a month even through my teen years. For most of my life I did what my grandmother and mother did. I cleansed with drug store cold cream, used a little moisturizer and finished up with power. My skincare routine didn't change much over the years. In my mid/late 40's that all changed. My skin became dry, the tone red and uneven and I developed cystic acne. I tried everything you can think of for 2 years. Then I ran across The Lovely Rose Apothecary on YouTube or something. I ordered the rose travel set in May 2017. After a month my skin looked better than it had in years! I just can't say enough about how pleased I am. I love using the rose cold cream. It smells wonderful and feels luxurious. The vanishing cream works great under makeup. My 3rd order just came in and I'm looking forward to using the night cream.
Where to begin...I have used drugstore brands to high end skin care brands that irritated my skin etc;.Fed up and wanted to try something basic,healing,chemical free and also old fashion and found this on Etsy! I had to choose between lavender or geranium travel set to make sure what would be fitting since I am blemish prone and combo balanced skin.Glad that I got the geranium set! It comes with directions in how to use it. Very happy to say it hasn't break me out and irritated my skin for a month! Made my skin smoother.I love the cold cream it melts off the makeup and didn't break my eyebrows and eyelashes either like other eye makeup removers do! Also love using the toner/cleanser in the morning I love the elixir of that makes me relax during the early day! This will be next purchase very soon in the regular size set!
Nice packaging and really cute vintage inspired products. I enjoyed using the creams and toner. I feel good about the ingredients. Timely shipping.
This is really high-quality cold cream, like out of a fine European apothecary “back in the day.” I have only used it for a little over a week, and my skin looks and feels very different. I decided to try it because I happened to read the shop owner’s comments about how women used to have a simple skin-care routine based around cold cream, and I have become tired of all the serums and this-and-that on the market, which seem over-priced and don’t do that much. This set is worth every penny – just three products that last a while and do their job. I plan to continue this old-fashioned approach for many months, and I foresee that my skin (my life and budget too) will be the better for it, I think.
After all my searching, this has been an answered prayer. I had broken out in a terrible, painful eczema on my face, mostly on my eyes. I've tried so many things from low to high end, chemical to natural, desperate to find anything to combat the soreness and dryness of my skin. The moment I applied this cold cream my skin was soothed, smoothed, and stayed moisturizer. As I massaged the product onto my chafed ares, the flaky skin also gently and painlessly lifted off of my skin. It was like watching a magic spell unfold. Thank you so much. Please never stop making this because I don't plan to ever stop repurchasing it the moment I have finished this batch. The packaging alone makes me feel beautiful again.
