Hey Posse, Up north you are un the grip of summer and down here we are chilled by winter. Both the extreme months for temps and winds and dry skin. I’m not much of a cosmetics person, yeah even though my job is Drag Queen. I wash with soap and only use after shave balm after my shave. This year though I’m noticing some little dry patches on my face. Nothing awful or noticeable really but enough to make me look for something extra to sooth my skin.
Rose Face Elixir by Aftelier Perfumes
A few weeks ago I made a perfume purchase with Aftelier and this beautiful face elixir came with it. Only US$70 for a 20ml container it seemed like unbelievably good value and worth a try. Especially compared to the prices I see on the beauty counters for similar products.
It’s on my bureau for when I get out of the shower and has become a weekly thing on Wednesdays. It smells so rich and glamorous. Roses and spices and honey all combine to create a beautiful starting point for any rose centric fragrance. It’s only been three weeks but Mohur by Neela Vermeire Creations and Wild Roses by Aftelier have been super choices. Even if rose is only a background note I think this will work beautifully. There are other fragrances in the line if rose doesn’t float your boat.
2019 is full of surprises. I was told as a youngster to only use water based moisturisers on my face. Something about it absorbing better and quicker. Well this puts paid to that bad advice. Rose Face Elixir is only on my face for seconds before my skin has drunk it up, leaving soft, pliable, refreshed skin and that heavenly fragrance.
Do you ever use oils to moisturise? What are some choices that have worked for you?
