A while back I attended the media preview for Crabtree & Evelyn Singapore’s Damask Rose Everyday Skincare Collection at their flagship store at Ngee Ann City. It was my first time attending their media launch in store and I found myself to be in for a real sweet treat with their Damask Rose skincare collection welcoming me at the entrance, fresh roses on the left and rose inspired cakes and more on the right. I don’t know about you, but I am a major flower lover and I have a soft spot for roses, peonies and rancanculus – flowers that have layers upon layers of petals. So. Much. Love.
The Damask Rose Everyday Skincare Collection is formulated with natural ingredients chosen for their ability to deeply moisturize and rejuvenate even dry and sensitive skin. The 3 key ingredients are French Damask Rose, Rose of Jericho & Hollyhock. Essentially these ingredients are known to be intensely moisturizing, brings immediate and long lasting hydration and anti-inflammatory properties.
The collection features 10 products; 3 cleansers, 2 toners, 3 moisturiser & 2 masks. I picked Cleanser: Freshening Cleansing Lotion (100ml), Toner: Relaxing Micellar Water (150ml) & Moisturizer: Hydrating Day Lotion (50ml). The cleanser has to be shaken to blend the oils and actives before usage. I love how it cleanses and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. However I was initially confused and used this as the toner (yes I didn’t read the description properly, just assumed “lotion” as toner) so I was confused why it was slightly oily. However after getting the confusion out of the way, this is a great lightweight cleanser that can be used out of the shower. I love the Relaxing Micellar Water (toner). I’ve been using it regularly now – replacing my Kose toner which has just run out – it doubles as a cleanser too, removing any residual impurities and tones the skin. The hydrating day lotion is white in colour and moderate in consistency. It’s supposedly a lightweight moisturizer however I find that it is still slightly heavy for Singapore’s humid weather. For best results, apply it into the face and wait for the it to dry, about 1 min before applying on make up. After the moisturizer sets into the skin, the skin is left soft and supple. But this is a moisturizer only for those with patience, I tend to hurry my skincare and makeup routine on mornings when I am in a rush so I prefer waterbased/gel moisturizers that sinks into the skin real quick. One thing for sure, the entire skincare range has a lovely rose scent that’s sure to be a bonus for floral lovers out there – just like me!
I recommend you to visit & test Crabtree & Evelyn Damask Rose everyday skincare collection in stores and approach their knowledgeable staff to assist you in making the right picks for your skin and preference!
