Product Review: Mamonde Rose Body Butter

      I love anything rose scented, especially when it's a body cream. The brand Mamonde (pronounced Ma-mon-day) has a whole range of rose scented products, but the rose body butter particularly caught my eye. The body butter claims to be deeply moisturizing, firming, and smoothing. I've heard good things about the entire Mamonde rose line, and in retrospect I actually regret not purchasing more products from the rose line while I was in Korea!



Mamonde Rose Butter Body Cream, 6.76oz
Price: $15

Description
Roseextract and rosehip oil offers instant moisture.  Shea butter creates an enriched moisture veil that creates smooth skin.  Hyaluronic acid and water-soluble collagen offers enriched moisture. A delicate rose fragrance that lasts for hours.


Review

     Texture wise, it's not as thick as The Body Shop body butters. Instead, the consistently is more like a thicker lotion. The rose scent is not overpowering, but rather subtle. Despite it's thicker consistency, it actually soaks in rather well, especially after a shower or bath. In terms of smoothing, it actually did have some skin smoothing qualities which I was surprised at. You definitely feel that your skin is smoother even through the next day. I think it's because my skin soaked in the cream particularly well. Would I repurchase? If I lived in Korea yes, but since I live in New York, I think there are other alternatives that would work just as well (I love The Body Shop's Atlas Mountain Rose body butter).

Concluding Remarks

      The Mamonde brand is a bit difficult to get in the States, but the Rose Butter Body Cream is available at YesStyle, Qoo10, and KoreaDepart. Within the Mamonde rose line there is also a salt body gel scrub, a rose toner, hand cream, shower gel, and cleansing foam. If I were to go back to Korea, I would definitely pick up the body scrub and toner!
