I’m currently working my way through a few different body and bath goodies I received for Christmas, but there’s one beautiful set in particular that I’ve really been enjoying, REN’s Moroccan Rose Experience Set. I’d actually tried a sample size of the body lotion which is included last year and fell in love with the amazing scent and lovely texture, so I was thrilled when I unwrapped this little box of goodies on Christmas day.
|REN Moroccan Rose Experience Set|
There are four different products included in the set, a Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash and Body Cream, an Ultra-Moisture Body Oil, and a Bath Oil, all of which come packaged in a beautiful Arabesque patterned gift box.
|REN Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil|
REN’s Moroccan Rose Otto Bath Oil is formulated with Moroccan Rose Otto Oil to nourish, moisturise and condition the skin and leave it lightly fragranced with roses.
I have to admit, I’m normally not a fan of bath oils, as most of the one’s I’ve tried leave an oily kind of film in the bath, and on me. I’m pleased to report that REN’s bath oil doesn’t do this. In fact, it doesn’t feel oily or greasy in the slightest - it actually mixes with the bath water, turning it slightly milky, and fills the bathroom with a beautiful, soothing aroma. The scent is quite intense, but isn’t overpowering or cloying. To me it smells of a mix of gorgeous, fresh roses and Turkish delight- absolute heaven.
After bathing in the oil, my skin feels wonderfully soft and hydrated, and I can still smell the lovely scent for hours after. Again, not strong or overpowering, just a delicate hint of fresh rose.
|REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash & Body Cream|
Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash is described as a delicately scented shower wash and is formulated with Rose Otto, Palmarosa and Geraninium oils.
This is probably the product I was most looking forward to trying in the set, as I’d read a lot of positive reviews on it, and it’s won the InStyle best body wash award 10 years in a row! Pretty Impressive stuff. It smells absolutely amazing and creates a gorgeously, creamy rich lather, which feels incredible. It leaves my skin feeling comfortable and soft, and the elegant scent lingers on my skin for quite a while after using.
REN’s Rose Otto Body Cream is described as an easily absorbed body cream that will leave skin optimally hydrated, silky soft and lightly fragranced.
To me, this feels more like a lotion than a cream, as it’s quite thin consistency wise, and feels very light weight. It’s very easily absorbed and leaves no oily/greasy residue behind, which is fantastic (I can’t stand greasy body creams!). It adds enough hydration to my skin and it does leave it feeling very soft and smooth (especially when used in conjunction with the other products in the set), those with very dry skin might not find this hydrating enough though. As with the other Moroccan Rose products, this leaves a very light, delicate rose scent on my skin, which lingers for hours after I’ve applied.
|REN Moroccan Rose Otto Ultra-Moisture Body Oil|
Moroccan Rose Otto Ultra-Moisture Body Oil is a rose infused body oil formulated to intensely replenish the skin, lock in moisture and give a healthy, youthful glow.
Like bath oils, body oils are something I’m normally not overly keen on, because most of the one’s I’ve tried leave an oily residue on my skin. Like the body lotion from the set though, REN’s body oil absorbs quickly and easily, and leaves no greasy residue on my skin at all. I’ve mainly been using the oil on dry areas which really need extra moisture (elbows, knees etc), but also find that mixing a few pumps of the oil with the body cream and applying all over works brilliantly at hydrating, and leaves my skin feeing beautifully soft and smooth.
Overall, I’m incredibly impressed with REN’s Moroccan Rose Experience set. The products included are fabulous, they smell divine and they all do a fantastic job at hydrating. They make bath time a real treat, and I wouldn’t hesitate to repurchase any of the beautiful products from the set in the future.
The kit is available from the REN site (£32.00).
