[URANG] - True Rose Repair Essence

My love for roses is not a secret at this point so it shouldn't a surprise that I gravitate toward rose products. The product I want to talk about is the Urang True Rose Repair Essence and I received it from Skinvestment's Beauty Date Montreal!!

Skinvestment held the Beauty Date Montreal back in November 2017 for bloggers and enthusiasts. The goal was to introduce everyone to different brands and products. One of the brands introduced by Skinvestment and Daint is Urang. Which is a company that focuses on using natural products that is safe to use on pregnant women, kids, and even pets. If I remember correctly, the idea came when one of the co-founder was pregnant and wanted to find skincare products she could use. 
The product Urang sent to the event was their True Rose Repair Essence, which uses organic rose floral water and essential oils. This was the product I am the most excited about as it is so much roses!! The essence is to keep skin moisturized, calms down redness and re-energizes sensitive and mature skin. Honestly to me, moisturizing is the key purpose I am looking for, everything else is just cherry on top!

**Edit** I forgot to put up the usual disclaimer. I just got too excited about my review. πŸ˜…πŸ˜… Even though I received this product for free, all opinions posted are mine. 
Apologies for the blurry picture. I didn't realize the pictures I took were blurry and recycled the box.
**Rosa Damascena Flower Water (45.6%), Water, **Glycerin (5.98%), Sclerotium Gum, Betaine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Panthenol, **Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract (0.2%), Salix Alba (Willow) Leaf Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Paeonia Suffructicosa Root Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil (0.1%)

** Organic ingredient 

There are no synthetic fragrance, additives, harmful preservatives or chemicals in this. The rose water is organic Bulgarian rose water, which contains Vitamin C and A, which will calm the skin down with its anti-inflammatory and anti-acne properties. The rose flower oil will nourish the skin, along with the aloe and olive extract to help soothe and protect the skin. All of which will leave to a well hydrated skin with a glowing complexion!
This is an essence, so I was expecting a runny serum. But it is more a gel! Which is great, as I dislike how those serum tend to run off and my hands end up with more product than my face. So gel allows it to stay in place and I don't lose any product! 

Now the scent...... The scent of the essence is WONDERFUL!! I absolutely love it! 😍😍It is an aromatherapy treatment to me at this point! I just relax so much with the scent. It is a true rose petal scent. It isn't very sweet, just a light rose scent. I just rub it in my hands, cover my eyes and cheeks before spreading it. The scent just make me go "ahhhhhh" and I can feel my eyes relaxing. I kid you not. It is the one thing that makes me feel so relaxed with just a sniff. 

As for performance. I think it is quite hydrating. The instructions said to use two to three pumps and massage to enhance absorption. But I treasure my essence so I use one pump and it is sufficient for my face. And I didn't find too much difference between using one or two pumps, so one pump it is! 
The essence sinks quickly, and feels a bit tacky to the touch initially. Then it made my skin feel less  dewy, like there is friction on my skin and it is causing my fingers to drag against the skin. I didn't really like the feeling, but it does eventually go away. And when I pinch it, it feels different from the skin without essence. So..Why do I like this essence so much if it sounds like it's not hydrating at all??
Can you see the difference? The skin looks a lot less "wrinkley" after the essence is applied.
Well.. The scent is a big selling point to me. But I was sold on the hydration aspect when I swatched it on the back of my hand. I had one pump, let it sink in, and forgot about it. Then when I was on my way home, I touched the back of my hand, and there was a noticeable difference! The side with the essence felt more hydrated and dewy than the side without. And this is after 6 hours, and multiple washes of the hand! That is VERY impressive! 

After using it continuously for a couple of months, I have to say the essence is great! It still have the same wonderful scent each time, and I still go "ahhhhh" when applying the essence. I found that it hydrates my skin well and I am so happy Skinvestment and Daint introduced me to Urang! I can't wait to try some of their other products!
