Discovering: Elaa Skincare + Rose Quartz Restoring Body Oil Review

by Mariana, December 2, 2017

The minute I opened the box sent from Jill Stacey, the founder of Elaa Skincare, I knew this was a different and truly special rose-infused beauty discovery. From the minimalist and elegant packaging to the intoxicating scents captured in each of her beautiful creations, it was a luxurious treat for all senses. While you might not have heard of Elaa Skincare, it has been a favorite with eco-luxe boutiques and popular green beauty bloggers.

Elaa Skincare is created and lovingly hand-made by Jill Stacey with fresh organic, wildcrafted and bio-dynamic ingredients that are 100% natural and pure. Each of Elaa's products is packaged in premier Miron Violet Glass containers in order to better preserve and increase the potency and aliveness of the beautiful botanicals. Immediately after my initial interaction with Jill, I knew she was a person I wanted to connect more with - sincere, creative, personable, and absolutely in-love with what she does. 

I ordered and had the pleasure to try a few of Elaa’s rose-infused formulas:

  • The Coconut Rose Cleansing Milk: One of Elaa's best-sellers, Jill describes this as 'A soothing and nourishing drink for the skin of celestial moonlight and stars, sunny tropical beaches, and English rose gardens.' It's a very gentle yet effective cleanser, with a floral-tropical scent, coming from the Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Rose Otto, Organic Vanilla Absolute, Organic Elderflower. $48 / 50 ml bottle
  • The Bee Beauty Facial Oil: This facial oil moisturizer with a concentrated Royal Jelly for an ultra-nutrient delivery, has a lighter oil consistency and penetrates the skin beautifully for glow and hydration. Organic Rose Otto, Sandalwood  and Jasmine contribute to the divine floral scent. $39 / 15 ml bottle
  • The Sweet Orange Honey Rose Restoring Body CreamFeaturing, among other powerful ingredients, Organic Rose Hydrosol, Wild Orange Essential Oil, Organic Rose Essential Oil, Organic Acacia Honey, Organic Vanilla Absolute, and Organic Vetiver Essential Oil, this is one of Elaa's newest creations. It's smooth and silky, with a sweet and scrumptious scent. $35 / 60 ml
  • The Rose Quartz Restoring Body Oil: A Gem Stone Crystal skincare creation that I'm reviewing in more detail below.

Each of Elaa's rose-infused products has a beautiful, distinctive and unique scent profile where the rose is positioned differently, but pairs perfectly with and complements the other star ingredients, such as the coconut in the cleansing lotion and the acacia honey in the restoring cream. The scents are natural and develop beautifully as you apply the product, but never overpower, offering a luxurious, aromatherapeutic experience for the body and mind.  Now, more detail about the Rose Quartz Restoring Body Oil.

I love body oils year-round, but prioritize them especially in the colder months for the deeper hydration and nourishment they provide (versus a body lotion or cream). Elaa's Rose Quartz Restoring Body Oil is one of the most luxurious, 100% natural and effective oils I have used. It is a body oil with a rich and silky consistency. It is best used on a slightly damp skin after you shower - applies and absorbs beautifully (within a minute or two, no greasy feel), leaving your skin silky smooth and softly scented. You don't need more than a few pumps either. Take a look at the organic raw anti-aging oils, nutrients, and essential oils on the ingredients list: 

Rose Quartz, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Macadamia Oil, Organic Hazelnut Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Argan Oil, Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil, Organic Rose Hip Seed Oil CO2, Organic Sea Buckthorn CO2, Organic Unrefined Vitamin E Oil, Organic Supercritical CO2 extracted Rosemary Antioxidant, Coenzyme Q10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin A, Organic Vanilla Absolute, Organic Rose Absolute.

I do feel a special energy each time I use this oil and, in addition to its most intoxicating scent, I attribute it to the Rose Quartz. I use crystals at home but crystal-infused skincare is new to me and I'm so happy I discovered this. Each batch of the oil is infused with Rose Quartz and each bottle also includes a few tiny pieces of activated Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is the crystal of unconditional love and the heart chakra. A high-vibration stone, it is said to promote feelings of love (including for oneself), compassion, confidence, nourishment and emotional healing. In terms of skincare benefits, it is said that rose quartz 'has been used since 600 B.C. for its power to beautify the body and skin, especially to prevent signs of aging and to create a clear complexion.' 

Now, a bit more about that simply intoxicating aroma.  I've said before that I'm always looking for a complete sensory experience in choosing beauty and skincare, and Elaa's Rose Quartz Body Oil unquestionably delivers. If you like rose and vanilla scents on their own, you would love the combination of rose and vanilla in this oil - it's the perfect balance of floral and sweet, luscious and elegant, just beautiful! In addition to the beautiful scent, both rose and vanilla offer amazing skin benefits. Organic Vanilla Absolute soothes and protects, and organic Rose Absolute helps restore, firm and heal the skin.

What is Rose Absolute? Rose Absolute Oil is produced through a gentle solvent extraction process, where the flower essence is extracted from the petals. It has a higher yield (~7 lbs of oil per 10,000 lbs of roses) than rose essential oil (~1 lbs per 10,000 lbs through steam distillation) and a more true Rose scent, making it the preferred choice for perfumery. Suitable for all skin types, it's used in creams and lotions for its anti-inflammatory, restoring and cell regeneration qualities.

I have been using the oil for a few weeks, almost daily, and it's helped my skin feel more hydrated and toned, considerably reducing dry patches; and I look forward to the aromatherapy this oil provides! It comes in a 100 ml Miron Violet Glass bottle and, with just a few pumps per use, it should last for a few months. At $49 / bottle, I think the price point is at par with the purity and quality of the ingredients that go into it. If you are looking for a small way to elevate your daily skincare routine, a luxurious way to pamper and indulge this winter season, Elaa's beautifully-crafted Rose Quartz Restoring Body Oil is just perfect. It is also one of the items included in our Limited Edition Holiday Box (loved it so much that we had to feature it in one of our boxes).

Part of Elaa's mission reads: 'Elaa is dedicated to creating the most alive, highest quality, most effective, most pleasurable, most natural, most pure, most safe, highest vibration self-care treasures that inspire self-love.' After my first experience with Elaa's creations and after including the Rose Quartz Body Oil into my daily skincare and self-care routine, I can't but agree there is indeed a special quality about these products that defines them as 'self-care treasures that inspire self-love'.
