39% of this Rose and Honey gel-cream is made of pure royal jelly and rose extracts. Royal Jelly is a honey bee secretion that is used to feed the queen bee of the hive, and is so nutritious that the queen grows to be the largest bee. It's widely known for its anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, wound healing and antibiotic components, and is very nutritionally dense (contains complex B vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, minerals, enzymes and more). It is excellent for sensitive, dry and acne-prone skin, and helps diminish fine lines. Rose extract is especially good for dry, mature and sensitive skin, but is good for all skin types. It is anti-inflammatory, helping minimize redness and soothe irritation, cleanses skin and prevents blemishes. It also helps to brighten and even skin tone.
This antioxidant power couple is boosted by other actives in this product, including Niacinamide at 5% and N-Acetyl Glucosamine (both ingredients work together with Rose extract to reduce hyperpigmentation and scarring), Hydrolyzed Silk (to help build your skin's moisture barrier and minimize water loss), Rice Bran Oil or Sweet Almond Oil (Full of antioxidants and vitamins B and E, hydrating and anti-aging) and Shea Butter (Moisturizing, reduces inflammation, skin soothing).

Moisturizing + Smells Delightful But Didn’t Help W Redness
I absolutely am in love with the scent and texture of this product. You really do feel like you’re in a garden of roses pouring fresh, thick honey into a pretty tea cup. However, I originally bought this cream to help tame my redness and it didn’t help with that at all. I still use it because it’s a good moisturizer (but only at night because it’s sticky) but I won’t purchase it again.

Sunshine for the winter blues
I love, love, love the Rose & Honey Cream for winter nighttime use! My already irritable skin gets dry, yet still oily and quick to break out in the winter. I love the scent, the feel, and the effects of the Rose & Honey! I wake up in the morning with clearer, calmer skin than when I went to sleep!

I thought it is not suitable for combination skin but I was wrong. The gel is sticky at first but absorb quickly and leaves my skin soft and smooth. The scent is great.

As I get older, my skin needs more and more (and more) moisture, and I'm still prone to acne in my late 40s - so unfair! Rose & Honey Cream to the rescue! I use it at night after serums and before other, heavier moisturizers, and my skin has a new glow in the morning. My acne heals faster, too. It's magic!
I adore products with honey in it and this is no exception. I don't know that I'd call this a cream exactly (feels a little more gel-like), but it works well on my dry skin. I think it's better for cooler months (e.g. fall/winter) as it might be a bit heavy for summer. I like using it for nighttime before sleeping and waking up with a nice glow. The texture is a little like liquid gelatin -- not quite sticky, but there are some trailing tendrils when you dip into the jar. A little goes a long way and it smells lovely (if you're a fan of rose tea with a hint of honey, it smells just like that)!
