Roger & Gallet Le Soin Aura Mirabilis

Roger & Gallet Le Soin Aura Mirabilis skincare range review

Roger & Gallet are well known for their fragrances and scented bath goodies, but are now dipping their toes into the world of skincare with their new Le Soin Aura Mirabilis range. This carefully edited range of four products is designed as a beauty ritual, and its so incredibly well thought out. I really love when brands take the time to curate a range with such purpose, you know its going to be good.

Aura Mirabilis is quite an interesting concept; it was originally a powerful natural remedy created over 300 years ago by monks. The natural elixir was derived from a select group of healing medicinal plants and was applied topically to burns and wounds to heal and preserve the complexion, or even drunk to heal and improve vitality. It later became Eau de Cologne - familiar, no?, and was even used by Napoleon III and Queen Victoria. 

Roger & Gallet have based their range around Aura Mirabilis by including 18 distilled plants in each of the products in the range, which includes a Beauty Vinegar, Double Extract (a bi-phase serum), Extra Fine Cleansing Mask and Legendary Cream.

Starting with Aura Mirabilis Beauty Vinegar*, because it fascinates me; this is a bi-phase concoction that once mixed distributes the plants from the oil at the top and mixes into the fruit vinegar beneath it. Beauty Vinegar helps smooth the skin, refine pores and leaves the skin soft and smooth. I use this as my toner step and I love this especially in the morning as it leaves my skin very radiant and fresh looking. Don't be put off by the name, it certainly  smells nothing like vinegar! Like the rest of the range, it smells very botanical and fresh and quiets the mind perfectly.

Aura Mirabilis Double Extract* is probably the star of the collection for me. Again, its a bi-phase formula, sitting somewhere between an essence and a serum. I've found this very effective on my skin over the weeks that I've been using it. Infused with 18 distilled plants, it sinks into the skin beautifully and protects against environmental nasties, while replenishing and restoring the skin and helping reduce wrinkles and uneven tone. My dry skin is left hydrated, comforted and looking much more alive. Can we also take a moment to talk about the delivery mechanism? It's not too visible in the photos but it has a corkscrew dispenser within the bottle so you can pour out exactly the right amount, or turn the bottle upside down for a second helping. Clever!

The Aura Mirabilis Extra Fine Cleansing Mask* is a clever multi-tasker in my book. A mask as well as a cleanser, this is best applied to dry skin and massaged in. Once water is added it turns into a dreamy milk, which, when washed off, leaves my complexion feeling soft and radiant. I prefer using it as a morning or second cleanser, but whether you use it as cleanser or a mask its a joy to use and leaves the skin clean and not stripped or sensitive.

I do love a moisturiser, so I was very happy to see that they had included one in the range - Aura Mirabilis Legendary Cream*. Texture-wise its light and very gel-like, so it sinks into the skin quickly. It contains White Lily extract, which helps reduce irritation and redness, so my angry Roaccutane skin has been loving this. I find the Legendary Cream to be really soothing and whilst light in texture it's a very effective moisturiser. That said, for me it's a little too light to use in the evening, but it fits the bill perfectly for the day.

Roger & Gallet Le Soin Aura Mirabilis is such a beautiful range. It's so calming and effective, so for me it truly is a beauty ritual.

Will you be checking out this new range?
