Naked Rose Nutrition Cream
This cream feels really nice on the skin, not sticky at all. It has a nice rose scent that isn’t overpowering. It’s light enough to use during the day, but nicely hydrating enough that I’m happy to use it as a night cream too when needed. The skin feels noticeably softer and hydrated after use. In fact – the cream and facial radiance oil together work really well. The cream on top creates a nice balance to the skin and they melt together into the skin beautifully.
- Rose Centrifolia flower extract – calming and Rose Geranium essential oils creates a balancing infusion
- Cold pressed Blackcurrant, Elderberry, Raspberry, Poppy Seed, Organic Rose Hip & Organic Thistle Seed Oils infused with Rose & Rose Geranium Essential Oils. Known for being antioxidant rich to protect the skin again free radical damage, hydrate and soften the skin.

This has a lush but non greasy texture, and has been formulated to be non-comedogenic and similar to our skins own sebum.
This lush gorgeously scented balm is a dream for your skin. It’s blend of black currant seed, starflower seed and elderflower seed oil along with gardenia extract which is both calming and soothing for dry, sensitive skin types …this really works well as a night treatment.
The gorgeous scent of this balm reminds me of tropical vacations and comes from the inclusion of gardenia flowers.

All About Sustainability
Sarah who is the founder of Love Absolute is passionate about making sure that her brand is sustainable and carefully considers all aspects of this in the creation of her products, which is something that we love about this brand.
Their products are 100 % Vegan and Insect and Bee friendly. This ensures soil diversity, whilst extending the season for pollinating insects, with a lower carbon footprint.
Being Eco-Conscious is a very broad subject and some of the things they think about are, impact to environments, farming methods, biodiversity, Soil Diversity, water use and wastage – locality and impact on local people.
They also think about their packaging and their normal products are all housed in Miron Glass which are high quality, solid and re-usable and can be washed and repurposed as spice and herb jars that will keep your spices much fresher.
The only waste might be the label, which can be peeled off and put in with the recycling and they post without any added plastic in cardboard and string.
Ingredients and Sourcing
In terms of ingredients sourcing we have probably the lowest carbon and shortest journey time of any UK brand, as the bulk of our ingredients are grown and cold pressed within a two hour drive.
In terms of biodegradable end results, any emulsifiers or preservatives they use are green tech which means what goes back to the earth ( down the sink) will not cause any problems to the environment, and all adhere to the standards of cosmos nature and eco.
They have designed their products to be able to meet the soil association standards so they can certify in the future as they grow – meanwhile they follow the developments in farming to make sure they are doing their best to stay conscious and ethical.
