Violet & Rosehip Replenishing Face Cream for dry, mature, damaged skin


The richest, most sumptuous face cream for dry/mature/damaged skin. Super-nourishing, cooling, gorgeous, and much-loved!



'I first tried this at a Country Living fair - probably 10 years ago now - and just loved it. It does what it says - enriches the  skin and makes it feel wonderful.  Now my mother, sister and cousin are all devotees too.'   Nicky N, Bathampton.


This has to be the most gorgeous, totally nurturing face cream ever!   A truly sumptuous, richly nutritious, herb-filled skin cream which  blends the cooling and plumping properties of violets and mallow with a  kind and gentle base of rose water, nourishing borage oil and  anti-oxidant rosehip seed oil.

It is particularly  suitable for mature or dry skins that need extra nourishment and a lot  of cell-building encouragement. This is provided by the borage seed and  sweet almond oils and rosehip seed oil.

Added to all that nourishment are the other famous characteristics of the herbs we use. Rose is anti-inflammatory, healing, soothing. Sweet violet contains saponins which act as a mild skin tonic alongside mucilage which is soothing and anti-inflammatory. Borage or Starflower, contains high levels of essential fatty acids which are antioxidant, healing and anti-ageing. EFAs are necessary for the growth and maintenance of healthy skin.

This cream has a wonderfully smooth texture, and  skins quickly and easily deep down into the skin to do its work. It  smells of rose with an accent of violet leaf, bringing its  unusual  slightly leafy-green note.  And altogether it is an unusually good cream  for very dry, weather-damaged, mature, overwrought skin..



METHOD: After thorough cleansing (we recommend Wild Rose &   Soapwort Gentle Cleanser) and toning (Melissa & Cornflower Gentle Toner, or Damask Rosewater & Glycerine), then applying Triple Rose   Intensive Face Care oil. Dot replenishing cream over face and neck and smooth into skin with an upward sweep of the fingers.
