Before I get started with the new natural rosacea skin care products that I will be using as of this morning, I’d just like to give a quick update about the red light therapy. It’s going great! My skin is looking better than it has since I first developed rosacea symptoms.
I have been going through a stretch were it felt as though there was still progress being made but that it had slowed down quite a bit from the amazing results I had during the first few weeks.
But over the last week, it’s been like the red light therapy has had a second wind because my skin is healing up in a way that is visible day by day, again, instead of week by week. YAY!
Now on to the next great news…
I’m trying out a natural rosacea skin care product line!
The products are from a company called Rocia (pronounced RO-see-ya), and they’re 100% natural, vegan-friendly and gluten-free. I stumbled upon the company (which is from Brighton, Ontario, Canada), when they favourited one of the posts that I made on Twitter (I’m @treat_rosacea, in case you want to follow…and Rocia is @RociaNaturals, in case you’d like to follow them 🙂 ).
I checked out their website and instantly fell in love with their products. As you know from my previous posts, I don’t choose just any rosacea skin care products that I find. I do a lot of research into them. Part of that process involved contacting the Rocia customer service (via email), which was very friendly and professional and answered all of my questions.
I received some great advice about which products to try and they sent me a box that included:
- The ROCIA organic olive oil cleansing cake (ingredients: saponified organic olive oil, water, and mineral salts).
- The ROCIA Provar treatment lotion (ingredients: water (distilled), cetearyl olivate (and) sorbitan olivate, abies picea (spruce knot) extract, radish root ferment filtrate, and propanediol).
- The ROCIA Quench extra hydration oil (ingredients: abyssinian seed oil, apricot kernel oil (cold pressed), camellia seed oil (cold pressed), rice bran oil (cold pressed), pomegranate oil, and vitamin e)
The company’s website explains why they selected each of the ingredients, which is cool. That information made it a lot easier for me to be able to look them all up and see what I could find out about them in research and in other products and their reviews.
I’m thrilled with what I’ve learned, so far, and I’m excited to give each of these rosacea-prone skin products a try.
The directions that I received via email from Rocia explained that for the best results, I should use only these products for my rosacea skin care for at least two weeks; so that’s what I’m going to do.
Here is the unboxing video that I recorded, to give a bit of a better introduction to the products that I will be using:
I’ll post other videos of the individual products and what I think of using them, and then at the end of 2 weeks, I’ll be sure to create another one that will let me talk about my experience with them all, as a whole system. I’ll be sure to add a blog post here, too, for more of the juicy details 😉
That’s all for now, but I’ll keep you posted!
