The Body Deli Creme de la Rose

Background info

The Body Deli is a relatively new brand to the UK. It was launched exclusively in the UK by my favourite Organic and Natural online skincare store a beautiful world in early 2014.

The Body Deli is a range of superfood skincare made in California, USA. The brand uses lots of seriously fresh organic raw superfoods and clinical actives to deeply nourish the skin. The products are hand made in small batches. The brand is loved by many celebrities. I am a lover of American Beauty brands but I would have to say that the Body Deli is possibly one of the best advanced organic/natural brands I've come cross from 'across the pond'.

Rose is one of my favourite ingredients of all time and I recently wrote about the benefits of using rose in skincare in my magazine column for the recently launched bodhi luxe magazine. To read about the benefits of rose please visit bodhi luxe Ingredient's corner Rose

This cream is one of my favourite organic creams that I've tried of late. I wanted to use it for a long time before reviewing to fully appreciate this product. 

Product description

CREME DE LA ROSE is a luxurious rich and nourishing anti-aging facial moisturizer that is formulated to help accelerate cellular turnover, feed epidermal cells, restore elasticity and diminish the depth and intensity of wrinkles. BULGARIAN ROSE, COQ10 AND VITAMIN-A is used for its cell regenerating properties and exquisite healing aroma. GOJI BERRY extract is used for its amino acids and vitamin C content. For normal to dry skin types that are experiencing the effects of aging. Skin looks and feels younger with regular use. Enjoy the world’s finest facial cream.

WHY WE LOVE IT

CREME DE LA ROSE is our most popular product at Body Deli. It has become a cult beauty classic. Truly it is one of the most sensuous and delightful ultra-rich moisturizing creams available at any price. Each batch of CREME DE LA ROSE is handmade in small batches and takes over 24 hours to make. It is hand blended for over 3 hours to get the smooth as silk texture that delivers a refined and elegant skin feel.

Certified Organic Bulgarian Rose oil is one of our favorite ingredients that we use in CREME DE LA ROSE, at over 4000 dollars a pound it is our most expensive ingredient. Bulgarian Rose oil has been used for centuries for its exquisite aroma and its therapeutic healing and regenerating qualities. Did you know that pure distilled rose oil is the highest frequency biological substance?

Every living thing emits an electrical frequency which can be measured in megahertz; rose has a measured frequency of approximately 350 megahertz. The human body is measured between 62-78 megahertz. Rose in its purest form is a potent active ingredient to support cellular health.

Most of all CREME DE LA ROSE is luscious and delivers the complexion a more youthful and radiant appearance. It is the closest thing that we found to the fountain of youth in a jar.

Results and review

This beautiful anti ageing cream is thick, luxurious and whipped to perfection. It feels ultra concentrated and not greasy in the slightest. When you apply it to your face it gives a beautiful dewy and radiant glow. For me it does everything I want in an anti ageing cream, it's packed full of anti ageing ingredients such as Coenzyme Q10 and antioxidants (see product description for more details of the ingredients). Immediately after application my skin feels perfectly hydrated, calm and moisturised. It has an extremely silky texture and feels incredibly smooth on the skin making the perfect base for makeup.

The cream looks wonderful like frozen strawberry yogurt in a jar. My only slight disappointment was that with a name like creme de la Rose I was expecting this to be seriously rosy but it isn't, it has a nice scent but I wouldn't say it is rose. I can't quite put my finger on the scent but it is mild but very pleasant.


I like to use this as a day cream as I prefer using facial oils at night. This is perfect to apply underneath a sunscreen. A couple of times a week when I think my skin needs an extra boost I will use this as a night cream for extra hydration.

I would say this is perfect for all skin types, if you have oily skin you can use less and if you have dry skin you can use more. A little does goes a long way which is great.

This does not break me out and has leaves my skin looking plump and feeling firm. Due to the ingredients contained it helps to speed up cellular turnover, plump the skin, reduce the look of wrinkles and stimulate collagen production. It feels very special when using after a face scrub or mask.

I would say this cream is excellent value for money and it lasts a very long time. It is £65/$75 and although expensive I'm surprised this isn't more to be honest, you get what you pay for!

I've never come across such an advanced anti ageing cream which is raw and organic. An extremely well done to a beautiful world for finding this and bringing this conventional and amazing brand to the UK. I would repurchase in a heartbeat. If you are looking for a raw, organic and anti ageing face cream then I think this will be the perfect choice for you. A perfect 5/5!

  2. This moisturiser looks positively edible, shame it's aroma isn't as rosy as it's appearance. I have looked at the website and all of the products look fabulous, especially the Blueberry Fusion Scrub. I think it's great that there are more natural anti ageing products available that actually deliver what they promise and that is results :) Jude x @jadlgw

    1. Thank you for reading Jude. Although the aroma isn't as rosy as I would have liked it is still very pleasant. I have the Blueberry Fusion scrub that looks even more edible! I love the concept of using super foods on the face as it truly is like food for the skin. xx

    1. Hi Sandra,

      Thank you for reading. Don't let the 'not so rosy' scent put you off, its still extremely nice. There's a lovely blend of essential oils in this. I still think it is perfect and worth every penny. xx
