Today I bring you the By Terry Echantillon Creme de Rose from my April Beauty Bar Sample Society Box. This thick cream has a soft crushed rose sent (gosh I never would have guessed from its name *snicker*). It absorbs into the skin at an average rate leaving a slight creamy feeling to the skin after 10 minutes. It claims to have ingredients that help tighten up your skin giving a more useful appearance and is intended to be used each morning on the face, neck and décolleté (upper chest around the collar bones).
How does it perform?
Beats me. I tried it at night because I didn’t want to have a negative reaction and have to live with it all day, but the smell was so strong since you have a scent – even though not as strong as perfume so close to your nose. Luckily I was quite tired so I fell asleep despite the scent. I woke up about 8 hours later – started my daily activites without remembering what I did just before bed (applying the cream) and within a few minutes I started wondering what the strong scent that was following me was. Then I remembered…8 hours later and the scent was still there.
There is no way I can use it again – the scent is just too sweet, and even near my collar bones is too overwhelming for me. I truly wish I could say that this cream gives you an instant facelift, but I can’t bear to have it on to find out.
If you like the smell of sweet roses then you may like this. I’d suggest going and finding a sample before buying a full priced one since this scent will probably make or break it for you.
Will I buy it again? No, I really can’t use with with the fragrance.
Will I finish the sample? No, again, I really can’t use with with the fragrance.
