“…Baie Botanique successfully combines the wisdom of our ancestors with the power of modern skincare technology, to ensure that our natural and organic ingredients penetrate the skin’s surface. That way we have beauty from the inside and out – as our products gently renew the skin’s surface leading to a gorgeous glowing complexion, whilst replenishing deeper beneath the dermis…”
Baie Botanique is the brainchild of Sophie Oliver. Sophie had a background of a make-up artist, and when she transferred to a plant based lifestyle she decided to combine her expertise and passions into creating a very special skincare range. Baie Botanique has a basis in plant extracts, notably rose and rosehip, both of which are the staple ingredients of the Rose Renew range that I have been using on my skin for the past couple of weeks.
Rose Renew Regenerating Face Wash
The Rose Renew Regenerating Face Wash is a very gentle formulation that can be used both day and night. You place a small amount in your hand and then massage into your face and neck before rinsing with warm water. It is very gentle on the skin, but has a lovely scent of rose that is fresh and natural – not like those very synthetic, old lady rose smells. The product is very refreshing, and leaves the skin feeling really clean and very soft. The bottle is 125ml, which I think would last for quite a few weeks. The product contains what is known as the ‘Rose Renew Superstars’ – Organic Rose Water, Rose Absolute and Organic Rosehip Seed Oil’, which gives the product that lovely scent, and, more importantly, it contains no parabens, phlalates or synthetic colours or fragrances.
This is definitely a product that I would repurchase, lots of things irritate my skin – this doesn’t, pure and simple.
Rose Renew Regenerating Serum – Anti Ageing
This is a great product to put on once you have cleansed with the face wash. A pump action serum, this is a non-sticky serum that can be worn under make-up as part of an every day skincare routine. I found my skin tone looked noticeably brighter once I had used this for a few weeks, and my skin felt tighter too, which made the lines around my eyes and on my forehead less visible. This product promised to imcrease cell turnover and collagen production, which would explain the improvement in skintone. Once again, the superstar hero ingredients are there, and the ‘skincare nasties – parabens, phlalates et al, are not. (Click here to view)
This is one of the best serums I have used, a real hero product.
Rose Renew Regenerating Face Cream – Anti Ageing
This is a very good moisturiser that can be applied day and night, although I kept it until night-time as it was quite thick and nourishing. This is a pump action bottle which allows you to limit the amount that comes out – hence no waste, but it was definitely thicker than I expected it to be, which was pleasantly surprising. I did feel a slight tingle once I added this to my skin, but this calmed down very quickly and then the skin felt very soft and smooth. This is a product that promises to plump, hydrate and replenish the skin, and I really feel that it does this and so much more.
The beautiful rose scent is there, and I found myself using any excess as a rather lovely hand cream. The scent just lingered beautifully in the air.
Baie Botanique products are wonderfully organic and with that beautiful scent of rose, they evoke well being and relaxation as well as nourished and hydrated skin.
