ORGANIC ROSE OTTO CLEANSING MILK
The secret to choosing anti-ageing products that work is to use ones that are gentle and hydrating, as this leaves skin looking and feeling plump, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The Dr. Organic Rose Otto Cleansing Milk is natural and mild, combining rose otto oil, rosehip oil, aloe vera, shea butter and essential oils, which work to soften the skin and create a protective moisture barrier. The formula is gentle and does a good job of removing dirt, makeup and impurities without damaging or stripping your skin of its natural oils.
