Review: Bodhi + Birch Skincare

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

I was recently sent a few samples of the new Rosa Rosa range from the brand Bodhi and Birch, I haven't tried any products from them until now. As I have sensitive skin which can also be very dry I find that a good skincare range can be a bit tricky to find, however the past year or so I have been lucky enough to discover a few that I love, including this range. Bodhi and Birch have released a Rosa Rosa set in which all profits from the set go to a breast cancer care charity, here is a link to the special edition set. 
I have the *Bodhi and Birch Rosa Rosa Clarifying Cleanser, *Hydrating Toner and *Daily Moisturiser as well as the *Desert Rose Rejuvenating Face Oil and the *Neroli Luce Revitalising Face Oil. I have been using the samples for two weeks now and I am in love almost every single product, especially the Rosa Rosa Moisturiser and Desert Rose Facial Oil. 

The Rosa Rosa Cleanser (£32, 150ml) is a creamy cleanser that feels very luxe on the skin and it has a gorgeous light rose scent, as all of the Rosa Rosa range does, but it isn't too strong and the products do not irritate my eczema prone skin at all! The cleanser manages to make my skin feel clean and refreshed without stripping it or drying out the skin. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

Next up is the Rosa Rosa Hydrating Toner (£28, 100ml) I have been using this product as a toner and as a refreshing facial spray, both ways work really well especially after all of the halloween looks I have been created recently. The toner has the same rose scent as the cleanser and it also doesn't irritate my skin. My only negative point about this toner is that I seem to use up a lot of it after each use which isn't fantastic although it is a nice toner for dry and or sensitive skin. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

The last product from the new range is the Rosa Rosa Daily Moisturiser (£35, 50ml) which is my favourite product out of the three. Most moisturisers for my skin type are not hydrating enough and I have to use numerous layers of moisturiser but this one is so hydrating I only need one pump for my face and neck, or less than that when I use the facial oils first! The moisturiser really hydrates, smoothes and soothes my skin without feeling greasy or heavy. Makeup applies beautifully over the top and the hydration lasts all day. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!

I also have two trial sizes of the Bodhi and Birch Facial Oils which you can buy online - they are 5ml each. My favourite oil out of the two is the Desert Rose Rejuvenating Facial Oil (£14, 5ml trial size) which works so well with the similarly rose scent Rosa Rosa range. The Desert Rose Oil feels light weight and as non greasy as oils can be but it leaves my skin feeling smooth, nourished and moisturised. The second oil is the Neroli Luce Revitalising Facial Oil (£12, 5ml trial size) which smells gorgeous, I have been using it in the mornings as it is musky but it has sweet refreshing citrus notes to it. Both oils are fantastic in my opinion and I will be getting so much use out of them in the upcoming colder months, although I do prefer the Desert Rose Oil. They would make great little beauty stocking fillers! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

Overall, I am so impressed with the Rosa Rosa range and both facial oils from Bodhi and Birch! My favourite products have to be the Rosa Rosa Daily Moisturiser and the Desert Rose Facial Oil, which are just heavenly to use and they work so well for my dry, sensitive skin! From the products I have used, I would definitely recommend Bodhi and Birch skincare!

Have you tried anything from Bodhi and Birch before?

  1. I have never heard of this brand before but the products sound really good. Shame that they are on the pricey side, especially that it's such a gamble when it comes to skincare (you just never know how it could affect your skin). I will probably have a snoop around regardless x

  2. I've never heard of this brand, will have to check it out online. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I like the idea of oils but my oily skin doesn't really react well to them. The moisturizer sounds like it's effective. Hydration is key as the weather gets dry. :] // ☼ ☯

  4. Ooh the oil sounds really good, come payday I'm definitely trying one of the oils my skins been so dull a lately and dry hoping an oil will add a much needed dose of hydration!
