Happy Hump Day! Truth be told, this feels more like a Monday to me than a Wednesday, but yay for the week being almost half over?!
Here’s a quick update on a new product I have decided to try! As I’m working on switching out my beauty routine products and skin care products, I opted to go for a company that makes personalized moisturizer. Yes, you read that right, they make moisturizer specific for your skin. The brand is called Rose & Abbot. As far as I can tell, they use natural ingredients and avoid toxic chemicals in their moisturizer.
I do like that they have a skin care quiz you go through before check out. The only thing I didn’t like about the quiz is that you can pick just two skin concerns. For someone who has combination skin, easily breaks out (thanks hormone imbalances…), and have uneven skin tone, I had to pick the two things that were the “biggest” concerns for my face. I picked large pores and uneven skin tone. I should receive my new moisturizer in a few days, I hope. I am going out of town in a week, and would love to get it before I leave!
In terms of how long a bottle lasts, their bottles are 1 oz in size and according to their FAQ section, using the cream morning and evening, 1 bottle should last 30 days. Sooo, if you only use it as day cream, it should last two months. There are 6 different scent options (the first being no scent) to pick from, as well as whether you want the scent to be Light – Medium – Strong. No scent, Roses, Bergamot & Lime, Plum, Neroli Flowers, and Unicorn. I picked Roses for mine.
I just got the ingredient list for my personalized moisturizer, and there is one ingredient that is not entirely preferable, but compared to the rest of the ingredients I’m not terribly upset about it. I am double checking to see what the “Rose Fragrance” consists of. I believe it’s essential oils, but I know that “fragrance” can really mean anything. (edited to add: just heard back from Rose & Abbot, all scents are created with only essential oils! yay! this makes me happy!)

I’m excited about getting my new cream, especially since my current moisturizer is just about empty! I think this link will work, but try this link for an extra 10% off!
If I don’t like this moisturizer, I will be trying Christina Moss Naturals Organic and Natural facial cream. The Rose & Abbot moisturizer is roughly the same price as the Christina Moss Naturals cream – the price being $26-29 for Rose & Abbot and $26 for Christina Moss Naturals. The reviews on the Christina Moss Naturals cream say that because you don’t need a lot of the cream it lasts for several months with a shelf life of over 6 months. I really like the ingredient list for the Christiana Moss Naturals cream, but we’ll see! I am super intrigued with the whole personalized moisturizer that Rose & Abbot offers!
