Joliebox Review - Essential Care Organic Rose Moisturiser

I have been trying this moisturiser out for a few weeks now. Once it arrived in my Joliebox earlier this month I put it into my skincare routine straight away and it hasn't been removed since.

This organic moisturiser is perfect for all skin types. It's a thin, cream coloured lotion that absorbs like a dream. I prefer thin moisturisers as I have oily skin and don't tend to need the intense hydration that a thick cream would give. For oily skin types, moisturisers that have a high content of water are usually best. I think this is why this one works so well for me. It takes seconds to rub in and then I like to leave it for a couple of minutes to sink into the skin so I am left with it feeling soft and supple.

It smells rather strongly of Rose to start off with but this does mellow down. It is not so overpowering that you would get a headache but if you were to smell your skin the scent would definitely be there. 

After it has absorbed I generally then go on to apply my primer and carry on with my makeup routine. However I have been finding that when I wear the primer over the top it doesn't seem to work as well. I tend to get expression marks showing around my mouth which I don't get without using the moisturiser. I am still trying to think of a way to figure out how to stop this because I really like the product.

This is the first moisturiser that I have found that doesn't make my skin more oily afterwards. It seems to   control the amount of oil that is produced which makes it very desirable in my eyes. It keeps my skin hydrated for the whole day without any trouble and is really simple and effortless.

Have you tried using this product? Let me know how you got on.


  1. I got this too and I haven't used it yet. But the fact you say it doesn't make your skin more oily after use makes me want to use this now! :) I quite like the rose scent it has! xo

    1. I know, such a huge bonus! You'll have to let me know how you get on with it :) xxo

  2. I LOVED this when I got it in my JolieBox. I really want to buy some but I live in Germany (I get my mum to send the box over). It really calmed my face down and took away the redness.

    1. That's awesome! I bought a new moisturiser today by mac actually. It's a gel one so I will have to see how that one works in comparision. xxo
