A Rosy Outlook: Caru Skincare Co. Rose Facial Serum


Caru Skincare Co. products were a pleasant discovery for me this past year. These organic products are gentle and effective, handmade and crafted in small batches, and feature the most beautiful sustainable packaging I have ever laid eyes on. Product wrappers and labels have small seedlings embedded in them, so that you can plant the wrappers and grow a real plant! Read more about why I fell in love with this innovative, beautiful company in my review HERE and my interview with Caru Skincare’s founder, Dominque Caron HERE.

Caru Skincare recently released new travel-friendly sizes of their popular facial toners (now conveniently with a spray bottle top) and introduced four new, intriguing facial serums for Summer. In addition, you can choose to purchase from the new travel size sets of skincare products. I was very excited when Caru generously provided me with a sample of their new Rose Facial Serum to try out!


As someone with perpetually dry skin no matter the season, I really love creams and facial oils that keep my skin soft and moisturized without making me look or feel like a total grease-ball. Caru’s Rose Facial Serum is simply formulated to perfection featuring a powerful blend of botanical essential oils that are certified organic: jojoba, rose, geranium, carrot seed, evening primrose, pomegranate, and rosehip. These ingredients make for a lightly floral-scented, ultra-hydrating facial serum perfect for applying during the day or at night.

I love how light and silky the texture of this serum is and how smooth and supple it makes my skin feel. I find myself often wearing this serum as a substitute for a daily facial moisturizer as it is hydrating and nourishing enough for my skin. It’s a nice, moisturizing base that you can wear under makeup or for extra nourishment and treatment at night.

“This serum will take seriously good care of your skin. When applied in the morning and night, this serum will help keep your skin looking fresh and vibrant and will help liven a dull complexion. It will leave skin feeling smooth, supple, and may help increase elasticity and decrease the visibility of fine lines.”

Caru’s Rose Facial Serum checks off everything on my list of what I like in a facial serum: keeps skin nourished and hydrated, leaves skin fresh and glowing, doesn’t look oily or feel overly greasy, and sticks to a simple, effective blend of natural ingredients. The lovely, compact packaging is another definite plus; the serum is housed in a frosted glass bottle with a convenient pump-top and is light enough to travel with.

Caru Skincare’s Rose Facial Serum is another skincare necessity that I’m adding to my permanent facial oil arsenal. I’m curious to try the other newly released serums but specifically, the Immortelle Facial Serum. It has a unique mixture of blue chamomile, cypress, grapeseed, and hempseed with claims to tame oily complexions and prevent blemishes.

The Rose Facial Serum is $32 for 1 fl oz. Get it on the Caru Skincare Co. website here, Caru’s Etsy store, or at Pemberley Jones. Caru Skincare Co. also just announced they’ll be including free samples with every order from their website and seriously, just take a peek at these lovely samples, you’re gonna want in on that!

    • Me too! If there’s one thing I’m addicted to buying, it’s facial oils. You definitely need to try Caru products soon, I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from the brand so far. 🙂

    • Thanks, Kathryne! Caru is a favorite brand of mine too. I can’t get enough of the beautiful product design and simple, effective product formulas that work so well for my sensitive skin. Happy summer to you too! 🙂

  1. I love the packaging of her products…so pretty and so amazing that there are seeds in it! I love rose products but was sad to see geranium in there. I’m allergic to that plant. I’ll have to check out her other items to see if there is something else I can use.

    • Sorry Linda, that’s a bummer! :/ I hope you find something you are not allergic to from Caru Skincare Co. You should contact Dominique, the brand’s founder to see if she has any advice about her products with ingredients you aren’t allergic to or perhaps she can concoct something special for you! Dominique is a great resource and very helpful! 🙂
