*Love Lula: Alteya Organics New Rose & Mullein Collection - First Impressions

These following thoughts are my first impressions. Don't you just love the stylish packaging of the new Alteya Organics Rose & Mullein range!

The Gentle Brightening Cleanser I bought myself in order that I could test out the full range (£15 - 200ml) which comes in a plastic pump bottle and is boxed. The products have a rosy/slightly herbal scent.

The cleanser is a cross between a cream cleanser and a low foaming cleanser and unfortunately found I just couldn't get on with it - I think I prefer one or the other! 

Formulated with illuminating Bulgarian Rose Otto, Mullein flower extract helps to brighten while skin reviving Candeia Bark extract calms, softens and smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles. Soothing Aloe Vera is a natural exfoliant and Hyaluronic Acid replenishes.

To use: massage onto the skin (I couldn't work out if you were meant to use it on wet or dry skin - and although I tried both methods it just wasn't for me) before rinsing.

The Hydrating Flower Toner* (£13 - 120ml) was in the love category! It's a cooling and soothing mist which refreshes and tones the skin.

Formulated with illuminating and toning Bulgarian Rose Otto, Mullein flower extract brightens, Candeia bark extract soothes and blurs fine lines and wrinkles, youth preserving Rose Water and deeply hydrating Hyaluronic Acid. It'll make sure your skin is really clean before nourishment.

To use: spritz onto the skin after cleansing or throughout the day to refresh.

Iridescent Light Serum (30ml - £19)* is white in colour and slightly thicker than I was expecting but it absorbs quickly and is nice to use. 

The serum contains the same ingredients are the rest in the range and is infused with their proprietary iridescent light phyto-complex which fights dull and tired skin encouraging it to glow! 

To use: apply AM/PM before moisturising for brighter, tighter and more luminous skin.

My favourite product from the range is Pure Moisture Face Cream (£18 - 50ml) which is a light and fluffy cream which absorbs instantly onto the skin leaving it feeling nourished and hydrated. It provides a perfect matt base for make up.  Again, it contains the same ingredients to promote younger looking and glowy skin.

To use: apply AM/PM after the serum.

The jury is out as to the range's brightening qualities (I haven't really noticed any difference to my skin in that sense) but the range is lovely to use and very affordable. For me, the star of the range is Pure Moisture Face Cream.

Have you used anything from the Rose & Mullein range?


  1. This range sounds really good, I would love to try the toner. But I just got myself their rose water and chamomile water when on holiday in Bulgaria so I need to use those first! So far, whatever I tried from Alteya Organics I loved so I definitely want to try more from the brand in the future.

    1. I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed! Did you go and visit the rose fields when you were there? That's something I'd love to do.

    2. I really wanted to go to the Rose Valley but it was too far from when we were staying. But if I ever go back to Bulgaria I will definitely make an effort.
