Barefoot Botanicals are a 100% natural skincare company founded by qualified homeopath Jonathan Stallick and Hilery Dorrian. Rosa Fina Anti-Ageing Day Cream is packed with antioxidant-rich and collagen boosting properties that firm and plump the skin. Skin is protected against environmental factors whilst the complexion is left brighter and glowing. This is the cream version best for normal to dry skintypes. There is also a lotion available which, being lighter, is better for oily to combinations skins.
Rosa Fina is made from pure rosa mosqueta oil, a miraculous oil that contains incredible anti-ageing skin properties which help to reduce fine lines and scarring whilst moisturising and conditioning the skin.
Contains: Rosa mosqueta, plus coltsfoot, horsetail and lady’s mantle strengthen collagen and elastin, plump fine lines and firm skin. Argan, borage and jojoba oils provide essential fatty acids to soothe and strengthen the skin’s barrier and protect against moisture loss and environmental damage. Olive extract softens and combats inflammation. Antioxidant vitamins A,C and E brighten and protect skin against free radicals. Vitamin B5 moisturises and soothes.
The first thing I noticed about this moisturiser is its natural rose scent which is quite strong but very pleasant. The cream has a medium consistency and is absorbed well. On application, skin immediately feels firmer and looks conditioned and more radiant. After using the moisturiser for a few days my skin felt hydrated and looked brighter. With long-term use I think the moisturiser would improve the appearance of fine lines and prevent them from deepening.

Overall score: 8/10
I think this is a good all-round, natural moisturiser and would recommend it for normal to dry skin types and mature skin due to its rich consistency and comforting scent. It does not have an SPF so some people may prefer to use it as a night cream.
