Rio Rosa Mosqueta | Award Winning, Natural Skincare

Rio Rosa Mosqueta, a local company based in Brighton are creating products that are not only good for your skin but the planet and our pockets too.  For over 30 years, they’ve studied the healing, enriching powers of Rosa Mosqueta. The herbs and extracts we source today are the same homegrown variety people of South America have harvested for centuries.

They really care about where the products are sourced and them being organic and as natural as possible. No colourings, no additives, no nasties. Just 100% pure natural extracts and ingredients sourced and prepared to an age-old South American tradition.

We always buy fair trade where we can. We staunchly support the conservation of South America and its communities. And all our products are EcoControl certified: the strictest standard of testing for natural cosmetics.

I was sent the eye contour cream (15ml) & intensive night treatment (30ml) to try and review as I expressed an interest in those. These 2 products caught my eye as they were something I didn’t have and while you could easily mistake these as high-end products they are both priced under £10 and are very affordable to my readers.

The price reflects not on the packaging or quality of the products, which are filled only with the best ingredients and the highly sought after Hyaluronic Acid. You will find this humectant (a moisture binding ingredient) in most skincare products worth their salt these days, the difference here is the other ingredients that compliment it and you don’t have to buy into animal cruelty with these products.

All products are:

  • Natural & Organic
  • Non-GMO
  • Suitable for vegans
  • Against animal testing
  • Certified organic
  • Have the Natural Cosmetics Standard stamp

Rio Rosa Mosqueta Intensive Night Treatment (30ml) – £7.95

This luxurious night treatment is enriched with natural plant oils and Hyaluronic Acid to repair, hydrate and firm your skin whilst you sleep. Our Chilean Rosehip Seed Oil is blended with Coconut Oil to soften your skin, Shea Butter to improve elasticity and Chamomile to soothe any irritation thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Usage

Use after your usual moisturiser before bed to give your skin an extra moisture boost. Gently massage into the face and neck and leave overnight. Use regularly for tired and dehydrated skin.

 

Not only is the price the great thing about this product, just look at those ingredients! So much natural power from mother nature to repair and hydrate your skin with minimal effort.

I love using this treatment after a face mask a few times a week to give my skin a real treat while I sleep. This product really gives a literal meaning to the phrase ‘beauty sleep’.

It feels light but nourishing on your skin while giving it room to breathe, so is still great this time of year. The texture doesn’t feel greasy at all and it has a lovely subtle smell. It’s natural with no harsh perfumes to irritate your skin if your face can be a bit sensitive. * A little also goes a long way so this product should last you quite a while.

Rio Rosa Mosqueta Eye Contour Cream (15ml)- £9.95

Our Eye Contour Cream is enriched with natural plant oils to plump away fine lines, nourish and brighten the delicate skin around the eye. Our Chilean Rosehip Oil is combined with specially selected plant extracts including firming Hyaluronic Acid, tightening Eyebright and highly moisturising Sacha Inchi.

Usage

Apply a small amount to the delicate skin around the eye area with gentle tapping movements. For best results follow up with our Face & Decolletage Firming Serum.

 

I’m at the age now in my late 20s that I need to be using eye cream and anti ageing measures. What I love about this eye cream is its light texture that absorbs seamlessly into the skin, It doesn’t feel greasy or heavy at all.

I like to pop mine in the fridge for an extra cooling treat on my eyes. I don’t really get puffy eyes but they get tired for sure, hazards of the job. So this is a nice treat and has become part of my nighttime skincare ritual. Its compact size makes it perfect for travel too and can easily be chucked in an overnight bag (it would be great for long-haul flights).

Rosehip (Rosa Rubiginosa) is one of the main ingredients in both products and has so many benefits.

Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Seed Oil is the most effective plant oil for skin repair and restoration and has been the beauty secret of South American women for centuries! It can help to fade the appearance of scars, stretch marks, sun damage and visible signs of ageing and is also effective at hydrating dry skin.


Our Rosehip Seed Oil is pressed from the rosehips of a wild rose called Rosa Affines Rubiginosa, which grows high in the Chilean Andes. It’s packed with skin-boosting nutrients to prevent oxidative damage including vitamins A, C and beta-carotene and is also a rich source of Essential Fatty Acids Omega 3, 6 and 9. These fatty acids promote healthy cell regeneration, which is why it’s so effective at fading scars and blemishes.

  1. I had not heard of Rio Rosa Mosqueta before – definitely have to check them out as the ingredients and price sound perfect! it’s so nice to find clean brands that don’t cost a fortune – can’t always splurge on skincare, but it’s great to feel like you are with high quality budget options 🙂

    1. I hadn’t either. Can’t believe they’re based right here where I live too! Just proves there’s so many undiscovered brands out there. That’s exactly what I was trying to show people so I’m glad that came across. They really are great and I applaud their ethics and price tag 😊💗Thanks for reading hun xx

  2. This looks like such a great brand, i’ll be sure to check them out! I absolutely love rosehip products as they are so beneficial to the skin x

    1. They really are. They deserve more awards and recognition. I hope you will – you won’t regret it. Oh me too. I love that they incorporate natural plants and herbs with things like hyaluronic acid. Thanks for reading 💚

    1. Yeah I’ve heard really good things about the antioxidant oil. I can’t believe I didn’t know we had such a great company here in Brighton. I love discovering new brands! 💗

  3. This brand looks so high end, I can’t believe how affordable they are! I never consistently use eye cream because I expect to see differences straight away, but I suppose it’s more about maintaining healthy under eyes for as long as you can. Definitely going to check this one out, thanks girl!

    1. I totally agree. I mean these are some of the lower priced items I believe and the oils are more expensive because they’re oils but I think for the look, the ingredients and just everything the brand as a whole is great. Yeah it’s a good habit to get into once you reach your twenties definitely. Not instant results it’s something that will come with regular use and acts as a preventative. My pleasure 😊💚Thanks for checking it out x

  4. These two products sound delightful! I have been using rosehip oil for years, but rarely see it in commercial products. I need to try both😍❤️✌🏻

    1. They’re fab! It was nice to try some seriously high quality products without the price tag. So many people pay a lot of money for products that contain animal derivatives. These are just as good if not better tbh and are super ethical. Thanks for reading Dana x
