My first entry for January starts with a pretty pink release by luxury french beauty brand, By Terry!
There’re three new products that were added the existing Baume de Rose family.
Baume de Rose Body Scrub
Baume de Rose Lip Scrub
Baume de Rose Lip Care (crayon)
Apart from the visually pleasing pink packaging, this collection is sure to appeal to all rose lovers. The iconic scent of Baume de Rose is present in all three.
Up first is the exciting new lip care stick and scrub. Beautifully packaged in minimal, stylish pink.
What I love about balm sticks is the convenience of application. No more grubby fingers poking into jars! Therefore hygienic application and also prolonged shelf life. I’m actually surprised By Terry hadn’t thought of launching this earlier.
If you are a fan of the iconic Baume de Rose, this new crayon makes a lovely addition to your handbag. Just as comforting, nourishing with a touch of luxurious Rose flower essential wax & Vitamin E to keep the lips supple all day. The only difference between the original pot and this crayon is the formula is less buttery and thick, which I believe was better as an overnight lip repair treatment. The stick version is more of a light balm that delivers long lasting hydration for day time. It’s colourless and goes on thin which makes it ideal as a pre-lipstick lip perfecter too.
The Lip Scrub is described as an “ultra-gentle scrub that delicately smoothes, refines & beautifies the lips. Super charged with Rose butter, Rose flower essential wax, Rose hip oil & oil extracts of Black Rose & Pastel Rose, it’s sugary rich balm leaves lips hydrated, nourished and more comfortable”.
L- Body Scrub, R- Lip Scrub
The first thing I noticed was that the granules are suspended in a ultra creamy formula and rather sparse. For lips that tend to get extremely flakey, this most certainly will not be getting rid of every single flake. Personally i’d opt for something slightly more gritty with less creaminess for thorough exfoliating.
However, as the description, the smoothing ingredients do soften and nourish the lips for a pillowy pout. Something that would work for regular upkeep and comfort for anyone living in colder and dry weather or just have naturally dry lips that need constant care.
Lastly, my favourite product of this launch. The Body Scrub.
It’s no secret i’m addicted to luxury body care. I find myself continuously reaching for products slightly on the higher price range as the ingredients and textures are usually more cosmetically elegant & refined. Basically you are paying more for the ‘experience’.
If you strictly indulge in budget body care, this one’s obviously not for you. But! I do believe, if you read my blog and follow me here, you are more likely a luxury skincare junkie too! Yes?
The consistency and granule size is perfect for a gentle but thorough scrub. The sugar particles don’t feel scratchy or harsh, and leave the skin feeling smooth and velvety after use. My preferred method of use is applying this directly on dry skin and emulsifing by adding some water halfway through. Smells amazing btw and gets the job done!
What’s noticeably special about this formula is that it’s deeply hydrating & nourishing even after rinsing.
Reading the ingredient list I find this includes Rose butter, Rose Hip oil and also Black Rose oil extract just as the lip scrub. All that keeps skin supple and moist & perfect for dry skin and drier weather.
My top pick of the collection is the Body Scrub! It’s just such a luxurious treat after a long day. Trust, your body will love you for a nice scrub down with some luxurious and skin loving ingredients. Of course, the price is steep. But then again, we are talking expensive ingredients and a product that’s effective and also feels amazing.
The Lip Care Crayon is a good everyday staple. The product works and provides long term hydration. Something I always look for in lip products.
The only product that didn’t live up to expectations was the Lip Scrub. As far as an effective lip scrub goes, my experience was rather underwhelming (even though this is classified as ‘ultra-gentle’ and I should be expecting a softer exfoliation). Basically a lot more granules would be required for this to work on my flaky lips.
