Estelle & Thild Rose Otto Serum

I’ve been excited about sharing this with you because it’s one of the most beautiful skincare products I’ve tried… Estelle & Thild Ecorganic Facial Serum with Rose Otto for dry/mature skin.

I hadn’t heard of Estelle & Thild before receiving this product for review - it’s a certified organic Swedish brand that’s suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

‘Estelle & Thild’s vast product range has been developed in consultation with dermatologists and toxicologists; it is based on vitamin-rich oils and plant extracts that are good for skin vitality.’

The Rose Otto Serum comes in a pretty frosted glass bottle with a user friendly, hygenic pump applicator.  One pump delivers the perfect amount for your face, although I used several as I also applied this to my neck and décolleté.

A single pump of the serum looks like this. It’s more fluid than some serums I’ve tried, which were a firmer, gel-like consistency. This is super fine and sinks straight into the skin.  It dries quickly, leaving no tacky residue.

The natural fragrance is so beautiful I could honestly apply this 10 times a day. The smell isn’t overpowering by any means – it’s a gentle, sweet yet fresh aroma – mostly smells of rose and melon to me.

How did it make my skin feel?  Soothing is the main sensation I get when I apply this. It feels gentle and nourishing, almost like my skin breathes a sigh of relief.  I’ve had compliments on my skin and it does feel softer and more plumped up. I’d really love to try the rest of this range.

The ingredients list (click to enlarge) sounds like it would even taste good (no, I didn’t!). 

‘The Ecocert seal of approval represents Estelle & Thild’s Organic and Eco-friendly content, ingredients and materials.’

Unfortunately all this goodness and gorgeousness comes at a price. £46 to be precise – and more than I’d comfortably pay for a serum. Having tried this, I’d seriously consider paying that price now.  I imagine it would last around 6 months and I guess £7.60 a month doesn’t sound toooo bad.

Not everything in the range is this expensive… personally I’d love to try a moisturiser and body wash next. Prices start at £10.50 and include a mother and baby range. Have you tried any or are you tempted?

Estelle & Thild Ecorganic Facial Serum with Rose Otto is available online at Beautique.com for £46.
