Absolue L’Extrait. A master piece of regeneration.
The last time rose made the press rounds as an skincare ingredient was through Skin Deli's Creme de la Rose. Sadly, it never got far. Korres also has a line of rose products, but their line is more focused on brightening of the skin. Lancome with its big marketing budget and expensive research team is sure to make this flower popular again on a different level.
Lancome's Absolue L'Extrait has Rose Stem Cells and Body Deli's Creme de la Rose has Bulgarian Rose Oil. It's like comparing a burger patty to a steak in terms of the research and technology. Lancome takes the cake in the rose battle.
Priced at $350. It's definitely one of the more expensive creams on the market.
I am going to get this cream after I'm done with my La Mer Cream, so stay tuned!
