A couple of months ago I received a very lovely package from Rosemira Organics. With her passion for skin care, Mira Herman created a brand that aims to provide nourishing ingredients to deliver healthy, ageless skin.
Mira, who started out as a herbalist, made her first cream moisturizer at 19. She then went on to become a chiropractor and acupuncturist. Rosemira Organics encompasses her expert knowledge of whole body health and skin care – giving birth to a line of handcrafted products that helps to balance your skin using the most nutritious, high quality ingredients.

Spring Flowers Calming toner*: HANDS DOWN my favorite item of all. This neroli-based hydrosol is incredibly, what else, calming, and it also smells divine! Essential oils of neroli and bulgarian rose helps balance sebum, and lemon verbana soothes thirsty winter skin immediately. Dry, dehydrated, and sensitive skins will find this an instant relieve. It was a sad day when I ran out of this lovely hydrosol.
Ingredients: *Organic Citrus Aurantium (Neroli) Hydrosol; Aloysia Triphylla (Lemon Verbena) Hydrosol; Aqua (Water) Distilled; *Organic Rosa Damascene (Bulgarian Rose) Essential Oil; A blend of 100% Steam-Distilled Organic or Wild Crafted Essential Oils (*Certified Organic Ingredients)

(*Certified Organic Ingredients)
Divine Honey Rose Replenishing cream*: My second fave of the lot, this has surprisingly a light, whipped texture. However, instructions say to use sparingly as it contains ultra-hydrating ingredients. Honey essential, Kenyan olive, and Chinese borage seed oil make a super moisturizing blend, and carries a wonderful perfume-like scent. Just a light dip into this mousse and it’s sufficient to deeply nourish the skin, leaving the skin satiny and supple.

The mineral content and concentration of dead sea salt is unique. It contains Oxides of Silicon, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Sodium, Potassium, Sulfur, Phosphorus, and Bromide to name a few. According to research, skin disorders like Acne & Psoriasis are relieved by soaking in water with added Dead Sea Salt. The high concentration of Magnesium specifically has proven instrumental in improving skin hydration and removing inflammation. And additional research has shown 40% reduction in depth of existing wrinkles, so now there is the added benefit of repair and prevention of skin ageing.
Is there any other better way to incorporate this highly beneficial mineral compound? With added ‘benefits of increased circulation, deep detoxifying, hydrating and rejuvenating’ properties for the skin, I’ll never look at dead sea salts the same way again. And indeed, wiping off the mask after 20 minutes revealed clearer and cleaner skin that doesn’t feel tight or dry, which can happen with some clay-based masks. My pores were also almost invisible.
A quick check back with Mira, I was told that the Lavender & Geranium Deep Cleansing masque is a great overall preventative treatment and awesome for hormonal spots. She added that it’s safe to use twice a day, especially when you’re facing active breakouts. My sample only lasted me 2 uses, which I wished I had saved for a “rainy day” as I recently had a cystic spot that took longer than usual to go away. Definitely need a full size of this power mask!

I’m really happy to have been able to try out the Rosemira line. The company is PETA and Leaping Bunny-approved, and most recently they’re carried at select Whole Foods stores. Both Mira and Kathryn, the social media representative, have been very kind and helpful in answering my queries promptly. Mira offers skin consultations and you can get product samples at very affordable prices. Also do check out their body and hair care range, which all sound equally as divine as their skin care.
