Hadn’t used it in years.
It was probably 5 or 6 years since I last bought the REN Moroccan Rose Otto Body Lotion, but I always spoke highly of it and really began to miss it, so I went to the company website and ordered a bottle. Well, let’s just say that the product is unfortunately not what it used to be.
The lotion itself is wonderfully creamy, with just the right amount of emollients in it to suit my normal skin type. I’d venture to say that it would be beneficial for most other skin types as well. It absorbs in quickly and leaves the skin smooth as silk.
So, then, what’s the problem with it? The amazing, beautiful, and uniquely REN Moroccan rose scent is practically gone. Once upon a time it was a pleasure to take the cap off the bottle as it already released enough of the scent to make me feel great. And it was perfect as far as I’m concerned. Enough of a fragrance to be noticed, yet, never overpowering. Yes, it was that good.
Why the change?
I can’t imagine why, unless it’s the availability of the essential oils, and of course, the cost. I’m guessing that the manufacturer’s price went up substantially, otherwise why not keep the formula as it was?
But whatever the case, while I do like the feel of the product, I won’t buy it again. I never thought I’d say that about REN, but the company just isn’t making this product to the high standard of years past. For that reason I won’t be purchasing anything else from that company.
Where I purchased my product: At the REN website.
Price: $44.00 for 6.8 ounces
Purchase experience: REN shipped the item in a reasonable timeframe, and it arrived in perfect condition.
This review is based on my own experience, and the product was bought with my own money.
