Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream

Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating  Cream

Thick and rich on application at first, Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Youth
Regenerating moisturising face cream contains Rosa Arctica, the rare 
"Resurrection Flower", an African violet, known to withstand up to 31 
months of extreme dehydration. Harvested at full bloom for maximum 
efficacy, this ingredient is proven to re-awaken cell activity in skin 
where cell turnover and barrier function is decreased due to aging. 
Formulated to boost elasticity and reduce dryness, dehydration lines 
and wrinkles, this is a natural cream, not synthetic as suggested by 
its strong, paint-like smell. Another of its ingredients is glycolic 
acid, a fruit-derived mild acid which decongests the skin (rids it of 
dairy spots or white heads) contributing also towards a fresher 
complexion. Kiehl's Rosa Arctica is an anti-aging treatment cream which 
delivers the firmer, denser, smoother skin promised by the product. I 
found this cream tightened the forehead instantly, delivering a blast 
of continuous moisture to the skin over the following two weeks. My 
skin was so revived and radiant, I stopped using the product until I 
think it needs intensive care again. Kiehl's Rosa Arctica suits all skin 
types 50g £45. Use as a day cream or apply at night. Available from 
Kiehl's stores nationwide or check online at
