Complete Moisturizing Cream with 4 Beneficial Roses by Le Couvent des Minimes

I picked up the Complete Moisturizing Cream by Le Couvent des Minimes last December, after having tried a sample and liking it.  Fast forward a year and I'm still liking this facial moisturizer made with 4 different roses.  It's my go to night time moisturizer once the weather starts to turn cold, which is when I switch to something a bit more moisturizing.
Now, I've got oily skin, which means I look for a moisturizer that hydrates without feeling heavy or greasy, and this paraben and colorant free cream does a good job in that area.  Key ingredients include (complete list below):
  • Gallica Rose and Wild Rose seed lotion: hydrates
  • Damascena Rose floral water: refreshes and softens
  • Musk Rose Oil: promotes cell renewal
  • Wild Rosehip polyphenols: restore radiance and protect against free radicals
There is a slight rose scent, but nothing overwhelming or that lingers long.  At $33, it's also relatively reasonably priced.  The whole backstory of Le Couvent des Minimes really appeals to me, what with it's rich history and botanical emphasis. I also recently picked up two of their fragrances, which has further impressed me.  Lots to like here!
