I’m a huge fan of rose scented products and Morrocan Rose really appeals to me as its deviates away from the tradition English rose scent we come across in scented products here in the UK. A quick ‘Morrocan Rose’ search on Google brings up many mentions of REN Morrocan Rose Otto range and that itself is very telling. Putting it quite simply, I don’t think anyone does Moroccan Rose better than REN. It’s been a while since I last done and event post so today I decided to flag up some gorgeous images I took at the REN Moroccan Rose Otto event, and discuss a product from the range that I am absolutely loving.
The event was held at the decadent five star St Pancras Renaissance Hotel which is ‘famous’ for being the shooting place of the Spice Girl music video ‘If You Wanna Be My Lover’. Just a little tidbit of information thrown in there. We entered a room that was lit up with rose scented Dipytique candles, and a wave of gorgeous rose scented aroma hit us when we walked into the room. The presentation of the products were beautiful and we watched a really informative video shot in the Moroccan rose villages which talked us through the rose collecting process and the way the petals were made into a ‘nectar’ which is used in products such as the REN Moroccan Rose Otto range. It was really enlightening to see the whole rose industry aspect of the product. We also got to meet the director of the documentary that was made on the whole rose gathering process and test out the products. It was a beautiful event as you will see from the pictures below.
We were also given some food to nibble on, and maybe because I am typing this on an empty stomach I feel like I really should include them! They also served my favourite bottled coconut water yay, it’s the closest to fresh coconut water which I adore.
I attended the REN Moroccan Rose Otto event quite some time ago, I think sometime in early May and I have really tested the products out fully before reporting back. I usually tend to do that with skin care, body care, hair care items because you need time to form opinions on products like that whereas eye shadow and lipstick really need just one day to figure out.
Today I’m going to discuss the gorgeous REN Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish. The word gorgeous was a huge giveaway on my thoughts about this product. It’s a real sugary scrub which immediately made me sigh ‘yes’ in the Herbal Essence advert kind of way, I love a scrub that you can actually scrub with and get a true exfoliation out of. I have been applying this onto dry skin just before I dip into the bath and it has been working wonders on my dry patches and ingrown hair. Tan lovers out there – this will ensure you aren’t left with patches.
After giving myself a good ol’ scrubbing, I step into the bath and the scent just lingers in the water and the oil from the scrub really softens my skin and makes it feel soft and nourished. There is olive and almond oil in the product, and rather than that being just washed off in the bath once I step out my skin still remains nourished. The scent is luxurious and really relaxing, a spa like product in your own bathroom. If I could change anything about it however it would be the packaging. The rest of the range has weighty luxurious packaging, I’ve just purchased the bath oil last week which is packaged lovely, however this tends to remind me of a nutella tub! However the product inside is not reflective at all of the packaging, and it definitely will not deter me away from repurchasing. That being said, it’s been a month of use and I’ve gone through about a quarter of it so think it might last me awhile.
I have just used up one of my Elemis body oils and have begun trialing out the REN Body Oil so I will report back on it soon. So far it looks very promising. Now you can pick this baby up here from REN’s own website or at any REN distributor. It is priced at £32 for 330ml which I find very reasonable for a luxury scrub.
