This past winter was a rough one: cold, dry and, well, cold and dry! My skin suffered like it’s never suffered before. Dry, scaly patches on my face and arms. It felt as though my skin was about 2 sizes too small from December to April. I went through lotion after lotion, trying anything that anyone promised would make my skin feel soft and hydrated. By the time Carla handed me a bottle of DHC Rose Treatment Oil, I wasn’t even reading labels. I slathered first, checked it out later.
DHC’s skincare line is based upon the moisturizing and cleansing properties of olive oil. Their Rose Treatment Oil combines olive oil with aloe, mulberry and Bulgarian damask rose to revitalize, moisturize and soften skin. This light oil feels like a spa treatment – the , fresh rose scent; the way the oil sinks into the skin and instantly perks it right up. I use it on my face before putting on moisturizer, and occasionally apply it to my feet, elbows, anywhere that needs some extra TLC.
Now that the sun has come out and temperatures are on the rise, I wondered if I would have to retire my Rose Treatment Oil to the back of my beauty shelf. Would the oil suddenly be too much now that my skin is no longer chronically parched? Happily, no. It seems to have adapted to the changes in my skin’s moisture level and is still part of my skincare routine. My face is clear and softer than it’s ever been.
