A while ago I reviewed Rio Rosa Mosqueta Oil which I was very impressed with. I was really pleased to be contacted again and asked if I wanted to review their new product, Rio Rosa Mosqueta Anti-Aging Day and Night Cream. I leapt at the chance as it could not have come at a better time. I was suffering from a bad onset of winter skin, it was feeling really dry and out of condition and there was a definite onset of fine lines. I was really interested to see how it would perform.
The cream comes in a lovely box that shows a picture of the Rosa Mosqueta and the sides show lots of information about the product. The rose-hips of the Rosa Mosqueta rose are used as one of the ingredients in this cream along with Bulgarian rose extract and other well known skin cream ingredients like Shea Butter, Macadamia nut oil, Aloe vera, Calendula, Horsetail and Chamomile. The Rosa Mosqueta is a rose that grows high in the Chilean mountains and is known to be specially high in essential fatty acids which are known to be good for the skin and provide great healing benefits. The cream is meant to protect your skin from harmful UVA radiation during the day and to nourish, hydrate and repair it while you sleep. It is also free from parabens, paraffin or other synthetic ingredients.
The cream itself comes in a glass pot, with the rose theme continuing onto the silver lid which I think is a nice touch.
The cream is white in colour and is quite thick, a little bit goes a long way. It feels really luxurious on the skin and it sinks in to your skin really well, instantly making your skin feel much softer. It has a nice subtle smell, which smells a little bit like roses, but it is not too strong or over-powering.
It is advised to use the cream morning and evening after cleansing the skin and for the best results it should be used in conjunction with Rio Rosa Mosqueta oil. I just tried it on its own and I have to say after using it for two weeks I am really impressed. I mentioned that my skin was going though a horrible dry phase, due to the onset of cold weather. This has completely gone and my skin now feels much softer and smoother. I have noticed that the fine lines I was experiencing seem a lot less pronounced as well. I think my skin looks much better as well, it definitely has a more youthful glow. I loved this cream and the way it made my skin feel, I will definitely use it again.
