Ciao bella,

This isn't about your sweetheart sending you a dozen of them!

This is a fantastic and ancient process from the rose hip seed to produce a topical oil that regenerates damaged skin.

The Australian company Kosmea is an international success story founded on the properties of rose hip oil. Kosmea started with a single bottle of rose hip oil and now, today, millions of bottles stand on shelves around the world.

Kosmea takes its name from ancient Greece and means to harmonize (bring into balance). In producing the rose hip oil they have eliminated synthetic ingredients and turned to ancient cultures where plant oils were used to sooth the skin.

Pure rose hip oil is a must have product for those who want a healthy-looking skin. Testimonials from people like you, dear gals and fellows, have been validated by research worldwide. Rose hip oil has been endorsed and respected by dermatologists and medical professionals for its many properties.

I know everyone wants to always feel and look good. Especially when the "big birthdays" come rolling around. Take care of those crow's feet! Laugh lines getting a little deep? Maybe a recent or old scar has been bothering you? Apply your rose hip oil diligently every day and you will see and feel the rewards.

All of us suffer from the mean rays of the sun baking our skin. Many factors contribute to skin exhaustion and dehydration. Use Kosmea's rose hip oil products to rehydrate and rebuild the collagen lost. The cleansing milk uses a gentle action to remove make-up and impurities.

The gentle scrub can be used a.m. and p.m. for all skin types. Chamomile flowers gently exfoliate dead skin cells. Sandalwood powder and honey remove surface bacteria, and natural clay removes excess dirt and pollutants. Cleanliness is next to Godliness!

The Kosmea moisturizing cream smoothes facial lines with a silky-soft feeling. The powerful anti-aging cream protects the skin with four powerful anti-oxidants: vitamins A, C, and E, and green tea extract.

Moisturizing face lotion with SPF30+ contains a patented process where the sunscreen is encapsulated and the particles float over the surface of your skin. By using this technology, less sunscreen chemicals are needed to provide you with a higher level of protection.

When summer does finally arrive--or maybe a cruise to the islands--you will need Kosmea's SPF30+ sunscreen with rose hip oil. This product also uses the highly advanced patented process of encapsulating the sunscreen chemicals. The chemicals do not soak into your skin; they float!

The body products also contain the positive action effects of the many botanical and all natural ingredients used to produce the amazing Kosmea rose hip oil line. I have product brochures explaining in detail the numerous and powerful qualities of Kosmea!

Wishing a dozen roses to all who want them, and a happy Valentine's Day, and Buona giornata,
