Smell and feel

A lovely deep-pink rich balmy gel-to-oil that smells of delicious Chamomile, Geranium & Rose and melts into skin. It has a fresh rose perfume, not a powdery rose tone. It turns milky when splashed with water to lift away dirt and cleanly wash away.

How to use

Massage onto dry skin until melted. Add a little water to emulsify into a white milk and remove with warm water or ideally a damp cloth.

CAUTION: Avoid eye contact. If eye contact occurs, rinse well with warm water. Do not use on broken skin.
