I was kindly sent two products to try: the Rose Rain Floral Water and Follow Your Bliss Tangerine Balancing Face Serum.
The Rose Rain Floral Water is a pure rose water spray, recommended for ageing and delicate skins. Rose water is my favourite toner, so I absolutely loved this product! It feels so calming and refreshing on the skin, plus the delicate scent of rose is so soothing.
Rosa Damascena Flower Water.
The Follow Your Bliss Tangerine Balancing Face Serum is designed to energise and restore the skin’s elasticity and help maintain a correct oil and moisture balance. It contains a nourishing blend of plant oils and extracts, as well as tangerine and palmarosa essential oils to help balance the skin and frankincense to firm and tone.
I loved the scent of this product; as an aromatherapist, I create many different blends every day for my clients and for myself, and some of my favourite blends contain essential oils of the orange family. Tangerine is closely related and very similar to mandarin essential oil, which is one of my favourite oils to help reduce stress and anxiety. Since essential oils can evoke memories and feelings when inhaled, I felt an immediate sense of calm when I first opened the bottle, and every time I used it after that.
The serum goes a long way, so you only need to apply one or two drops. It is easily absorbed and doesn't feel greasy, which can often be a worry if your skin is prone to oiliness like mine is. It made my skin feel wonderfully soft and smooth afterwards, and although I usually applied it underneath my moisturiser, I found it to be hydrating enough to use alone. I especially enjoyed applying a little extra at night and thoroughly massaging it into my face to give my skin a boost.
