The Aubrey Revitalizing Therapy Cleanser with Rosa Mosqueta Rose Hip Seed Oil ($14.95) has moisturizing properties, and its creamy texture immediately feels hydrating. While I naturally have skin that tends towards oily, I thought I would give this cleanser a try because this past winter and spring I suffered from some dry skin in my T-zone area. The first thing I noticed before I even applied the Aubrey cleanser to my skin was the scent. The rose hip seed oil is highlighted prominently on the label yet the smell had overwhelming cherry notes. Personally, I can’t stand anything cherry scented; however, I did grow used to this particular scent over time.
I also took issue with the texture. While I could see how the product would be effective on dry skin, I didn’t enjoy the sensation of washing my face with a cream cleanser like this. It felt thick and heavy, like I was trying to wash my face with hand lotion.
All this being said, I do think the Aubrey Revitalizing Therapy Cleanser was effective! While using this product for two months, my dry skin disappeared and I noticed only a minor breakout during the testing period. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who needs an extra kick of moisturizer with her facial cleanser, but it simply wasn’t the perfect cleanser for me.
