Super Hydrating Face Cream with Organic Rosehip Oil 60mls
If your face feels dehydrated and dry, looks a bit dull or needs some extra love, which it does as we get older, then our Super Hydrating Face Cream is what you want. It has all the elements to give your face the hydration, protection, nourishment and love it requires.
A great face cream works to give you all this because it has:
- a water base which delivers hydration to the outer layer;
- a humectant which draws water up from our lower tissues to deliver more hydration to that outer skin
- oils to soften, nourish and protect your skin and aid hydration by forming an occlusive layer that locks in water.
The big secret to having smooth and plump and healthy skin (that looks younger) is hydration. Our Face Cream delivers this where you need it: in the outer layers (as you can never drink your way to this). Water-attracting humectants draw up hydration from your lower tissues and the gorgeous oils lock it all in.
Nourishment and protection
Our super-hydrating Face Cream has some of the best antioxidant-rich organic, cold-pressed oils you can find, including Rosehip, Marula, Evening Primrose and Jojoba to protect your skin against the unavoidable free radicals that cause the damage to your skin. Think daily environmental damage (UV rays, pollution, air-borne toxins). If you want to take care of your skin and have it healthy and gorgeous at any age you need to look after it, protect it and do it every day. One of the best ways to do that is to use the power of antioxidants, both in your diet and by applying directly to your skin.
If you are going to use a face cream every day, actually twice a day, you may as well do it with one that smells divine, feels luscious and gives you a few moments of comfort in your busy day.
Best suited to...
Dry, dehydrated, sensitive and maturing skin. Perfect for anyone needing a daily dose of hydration and TLC.
Made in New Zealand for NZ conditions
I started making and using my Face Cream just for myself because I wanted something natural and gorgeous to use on my skin, which definitely needed much more hydration after I moved to New Zealand. And at 40-years-old I also needed more hydration than when I was younger. I made this Face Cream and used it for 12 years before I ever thought of selling it, To this day, each jar is made and poured by hand.
How to use it
Use in the morning under your SPF and make-up. We do not have SPF in our Face Cream because I recommend you use a dedicated sunblock: a product that is made to protect you from the sun and only that. You will not be able to apply enough of a SPF make-up or SPF face cream to get the coverage that’s required to protect you from the sun. And it's hard to apply these products evenly enough for proper protection. The reason sunblock needs to be reapplied every two hours is because it becomes clumped or uneven (like your make-up does) and that allows the UV rays to get through.
Use our Face Cream at night as the last step in your routine: apply to a clean face and after serums and oils (if you use those).
The goodness in our Face Cream
- Rosehip Oil* is a fabulous antioxidant. It moisturises and firms up the appearance of fine wrinkles, leading to a smoother face that glows.
- Marula Oil* for essential antioxidants, helps protect your skin from daily environmental damage (UV rays, pollution, air-borne toxins), helping with suppleness and elasticity
- Evening Primrose Oil* is magical for sensitive skin, preventing breakouts, smoothing wrinkles and improving the overall health of your skin
- Jojoba Oil* is deeply hydrating. It adds another layer of antioxidants that promote collagen synthesis, taking you one step closer to glowing skin.

AGNES & ME CRUELTY-FREE PRODUCTS ARE HANDMADE IN SMALL BATCHES IN TITIRANGI, NEW ZEALAND
I have enjoyed using this cream which suits my skin as a night cream. It feels great. However the delicious fresh floral perfume has changed recently to a rather over almondy smell. Disappointing. I hope you can source the previous ingredients. Your oil has a delightful fragrance.
I am so disappointed to read this Jean, sorry. I have not changed the formula but I do have one of my FAQ on the website addressing the variations in colour and smell as it is sometimes just the change in the batch number of an ingredient that I get from the suppliers 'Because all our ingredients are organic and natural, and our products are made by hand, occasionally there can slight variation in colour or smell from batch to batch.' But I will send you an email to see what batch number you experienced this with and get you another jar, Deirdre
I have been using this face cream for over two years now and I still enjoy using it every single day. I use it morning and night as part of my face routine and the result is my face feeling hydrated and an even skin tone. Could not recommend this more.
Thank you so much Alex
Just a tiny tiny bit goes a long way!! I was using way too much to begin with. I dab more on at night and less on during the day.
Thanks so much Meg and it is definitely a good thing to use more at night ☺
For me, this cream has the perfect balance between richness and weight - so lush without being heavy or greasy. It has given my face so much of its life back :-) Just buy it! I use it as part of a three-pronged approach with Blam Blam Balm and the Restorative Face Serum with Bakuchiol & Kiwi Seed and they are all magical in their own way.
Ive purchased this for my partners birthday two years in a row now! She absolutely loves it!
