Product Description: According to One Love Organics, the Rose Aromatic Body Serum provides a mist of precious oils that intensely moisturize the skin, leaving it refreshed, beautifully scented, and soft to the touch. Unlike most water-based lotions it has 100% active formulas for a more potent, longer lasting moisture solution.

Usage: After showing, while my skin is still damp, I generously apply this serum. I apply it all over as I would with a traditional lotion.
My Thoughts: I was given this product by a friend and thought that I would share my experiences with my readers. This product is light and has the perfect weight for use during summer months when you don’t want to be slathered in thick creams. It also uses plant-derived ingredients that are safe for the body. Most notably, this serum has a lovely formulation that isn’t greasy and easily glides over the skin for a softening effect.
What about moisture? This serum does have some beneficial moisturizing properties but unfortunately it isn’t quite moisturizing enough for me. I have drier skin, even in our humid southern summers, so I need more moisture than this product offers. It serves as a good base but I have to follow-up with another moisturizer to give my skin the feeling of comfort that I desire.
I was also overwhelmed by the rose aroma. I appreciate that it offered a natural rose fragrance but I realize that I am not really fond of the scent of roses. If I purchased this product I would probably opt for one of their other fragrance profiles (lavender, neroli or chamomile).
Who is this product for? This product is probably best suited for the warm months or on those occasions when you don’t want to use heavy creams and lotions. It would be great for someone who wants moisture and doesn’t suffer from extremely dry skin. For all of my rose-scented product lovers, you will be in aromatic bliss! Even if roses don’t appeal to you this product may still be a “go”, since other aromas are available as well.
