Rock Rose Beauty Nourishing Facial Oil
If you are a regular reader of this website, you will known only too well that I just love a good facial oil, if you find the right one for you, it can take the place of so many products, moisturisers, toners, you name it, a good oil can do the job.
Always being on the look out for something new, I read about a UK based brand in a recent edition of Vogue.
Called Rock Rose Beauty, they manufacture a small range of 100% plant based skin products including the subject of this review – Their Nourishing Facial Oil
Rock Rose Beauty Nourishing Facial Oil
The story behind Rock rose beauty is one of triumph over adversity.
Co founder Lindsay Wright was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. After a lengthy treatment that involved chemotherapy, other aggressive drugs and a double mastectomy she has (thankfully) come through the treatment.
The treatment left her with a number of side effects, including very dry, dull and blotchy skin. It was on a holiday in Portugal that she stumbled across a moisturising balm that used the oil from a local plant – called Rock Rose.
Rock Rose ( Cisytus landifer) is a native plant found in the mediterranean, in particular Portugal. Its oil is renowned for its healing and immunity boosting properties, it has a high amount of antioxidants and polyphenols and studies show that its just as effective as green tea in reducing cellular damage caused by free radicals.
After trying the balm she found that her skin started to regain its radiance, becoming smoother and more healthy looking.
Inspired by this, Lindsay, along with two friends who had cosmetic industry experience started making small quantities of this moisturising balm to share with their friends and families.
It soon became apparent that their product was a winner and thats when they set up their company Rock Rose Beauty and started to sell their products to the public.
Suitable for all, but particularly the maturer skin, their rock rose oil products are now best sellers and a recent feature in Vogue has now really put them on the map.
Their facial oil was a particular interest to me as I love my oils.
It has been developed to intensely nourish and revitalise the skin, in particular in women who are older and have gone through, or are going through the menopause.
The Formula In Rock Rose Beauty Nourishing Facial Oil
Its based around the effect of the rock rose,(Cistus ladaniferus) Its oil extract is capable of getting deep into the skins layers, helping to soften and improve the appearance of fine lines, and wrinkles. It boosts skins texture, and lifts and tones.
Alongside the Rock Rose oil it also contains:
Jasmine Flower Oil – Helps to reduce dryness without causing any blocked pores, it has a wonderful floral scent that uplifts and boosts the spirit
Rose Flower Oil – Contains natural sugars in the petals that help maintain skins smoothness.
In addition it also contains:
- Calendula Flower oil
- Evening Primrose oil
- Geranium Flower Oil
How To Use Rock Rose Beauty Facial Oil
I was told years ago by an industry expert that to get the best from any skin oil, put a few drops into the palm of your hand, rub the hands together to allow the heat of your hands activate the oils and then apply to the skin.
This oil has a gorgeous scent, it rubs in well, and leaves the skin feeling smooth without leaving that horrible oily feeling that you can get with some products.
After trying it for several weeks, I am really happy with the results, my skin feels soft, it looks plumper too and the few lines I had have definitely reduced in appearance.

My Final Thoughts On Rock Rose Beauty Facial Oil
I am so happy that I picked up Vogue last month, discovering Rock Rose Beauty facial oil ( and in fact their whole range of products as above) has been one of the best things that I have ever done, I simply love them, and the way they make my skin look and feel.
The facial oil is without doubt one of the best out there – possibly THE best.
I also love the fact that its all 100% natural and plant based, there are no horrible parabens, glycols or silicones, just pure natural skin care that really works!
