REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Cream

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

REN are renowned for their great skincare. I've used some of their face products before but hadn't yet delved into their body care range until I acquired this sample size of their Moroccan Rose Otto Body Cream recently. The cream is designed to leave skin "optimally hydrated, silky soft and lightly fragranced with roses". I'm completely infatuated with rose at the moment, so I've been using this a lot lately and I've quite liked the results. The cream itself is really lightweight with a gorgeous texture - it absorbs into the skin almost immediately leaving it noticeably softer, and without any oily residue. However, the downside to this is that you find yourself needing a fair amount to cover your entire body, and at £26 a bottle (for 200ml - pictured is 50ml) it's not really a product you want to be frivolous with. For me, this product's redeeming feature is the scent - it's simple and classic, with a real luxury feeling to it - I've loved using this cream on relaxing pampering evenings as it feels like a bit of a treat to use. I do wish that it was either a little richer in consistency or a little cheaper, as while I find it effective, I feel that it's just not effective enough to justify the price, which is a shame. My search for the perfect rose body cream continues!

  2. Such a disappointment. I personally really unlike the scent of rose but you'd expect the body cream to be a little better in quality considering the price xx

  3. Rose is one of my favourite smells! The price is a killer though, it would be justifiable for face cream, like Gemma said, since its for the full body that's a bit pricy! As long as you like it though!!
