Hello everyone! I’m taking ages to complete this post as i’m swamped with work and plenty of backlogs recently! However, i’m glad that most of the companies are really understanding and not add-on to my stress level! Thank you Decleor and Camy for being so patient with me… Today, i will like to share about a serum which i have been religiously using it every night for the past 2 months. :)

Back in olden days, essential and plant oil has always been widely used due to its highly beneficial medical benefits.. The logic behind is nature is well made and plants create their own balance by adapting, capitalizing on and selecting the best from their environment.
Our body is complex and sometimes we do not know what it needs, which causes an imbalance. As such, aromatherapy can also help to restore this balance within the complex human skin and body..

Decleor has sent me the Rose D’Orient Aromessence Serum for review as i have sensitive + acne prone skin which is prone to flare-ups and redness (from stress, irritation or hormonal imbalance). Aromessence Rose D’Orient is an elixir of 100% pure, 100% natural Essential Oils, specially formulated for the daily care of sensitive and reactive skin. It contains Essential Oils of Roman Camomile, Petitigrain and Neroli to treat and pamper skin. It will purify, soothes the skin, immediately restores comfort and relieves irritation.
As a made to measure aromatic treatment care product for sensitive and reactive skin, this 100% natural serum with Essential Oils will instantly soothes away feelings of tightness and helps reduce signs of sensitivity. It also comforts the skin and melts away signs of destress.
To optimize the effective of the serum, it is recommended to use it on perfectly cleansed skin.. Put one of your finger on the top of the bottle and tilt the bottle to dispense one drop of the serum. Repeat this process on another finger and warm the 2 drops of serum on the palm of your hands. After which, inhale deeply to indulge in the delicate scents of Essential Oils before applying the serum onto the entire face (in an outwards motion).. To compete the routine, using acupressure onto the key energy points of the face with gentle yet firm pressure (as per video via this LINK).
I have sensitive and acne prone skin hence i was feeling quite worried before i use this product.. Since it is oil based, i was afraid that it will make my skin even oilier and worsen my skin’s issues. Despite being paranoid, I’m glad that took the plunge and try the AROMESSENCE since it is so highly raved by many.
After using it every night for the past 2 months, i have to say that i love it! i use it all over my face with the recommended facial acupressure, the rose scent smells so good and relaxing that I’m always looking forward to using it.. It leaves my skin smooth after application and i will wake up with supple skin the next day (despite sleeping in air-conditioned room). I also find that it balances my skin as i’m seeing reduction in skin redness / sensitivity. It does not cause me to breakout nor does it contribute to more clogged pores. After adding this to my skin care regime (together with clarasonic which i will touch on in another post), my skin condition has improved so much in terms of clarity – lesser imperfections + more radiance.
The two downside about this product will be the price. It is on the high side but a little goes a long way (2 drops will be more than enough to treat your skin). Another downside will be that it takes a long time to get absorbed by the skin so i must wait for about 5 mins before i can apply my moisturizer (this is the reason why i don’t use it in the morning as i’m always rushing for time). The photo below is just for illustration purposes as i can’t take it during night-time due to lighting issue. :D
If you wish jump on the Decleor bandwagon, the products are sold @ Tangs Level One.. :)
