Make travel-ravaged skin soft as rose petals with Decleor

There are some of us who need a lot of help for our skin while -- and after -- traveling, but it's often hard to find products that do what we need them to do . . . and no more. Sometimes the whiteners/lighteners/fillers etc., are not healing what ails ya'. I find that after flying, eating salted foods, drinking alcohol, getting much more sun than I would at home (which is almost none), I am irritated and dehydrated. My skin is too, ha!

Fortunately, there's Decleor, the luxury French aromatherapy skincare company to the rescue! I was happy to be hosted to experience it.

There's no question that there are certain plants, flowers, herbs that contain nutrients that just can't be replicated in the lab. Roses are one of those prized mysterious flowers that have been cherished for millennia.

There's a two-pronged night treatment that has had me waking up with clear, velvety, non-rashy and well-hydrated skin in the morning. Aromessence™ ROSE D’ORIENT Soothing Serum is an aromatic, vegetal/spice scented fluid serum that has a whole ritual designed around it, such as first inhaling the aromas. It has Damask Rose, Roman Camomile, Neroli and Petitgrain Essential Oils.

The seconds step in the routine is Rose D'Orient Soothing Night Balm. It gets scooped out with a little spatula. The consistency is waxy/rich, made with Rose, Neroli and Chamomile Essential Oils, Almond and Blackcurrant Plant Oils. You emulsify it in your hands before applying in certain strokes as directed. It's a rich hydrator that doesn't over-grease you or feel itchy/heavy. It's protective and nourishing.

Both products are sized perfectly for a 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag.
