In the new Shills Damascus Rose Skin Care Series, precious essential oil (they call it liquid of gold!) is carefully extracted from the Damascus Rose which grows on Bulgaria Mountain. No chemicals or artificial substances are added to it. To produce 1 kg of the rose essential oil, 4000 kg of fresh rose petals are needed!
The whole range is super pinkish and smells of this lovely rose scent that is so romantic and relaxing.
The launching was held at Garden Cafe which was perfect with it's beautiful garden setting.

We were greeted by these 2 young dancers who could really shake!
Next up was a demonstration by Eva. First step of skincare is to remove makeup and dirt on your face. Eva is using the 5-in-1 Rose Essential Deep Clarifier (RM79/250ml) which functions as a makeup remover, cleanser, exfoliator, moisturizer and sebum controller. It's really unique because as you massage it, it turns really sticky and you can just pull it off along with the dirt.
The Rose Essential Duo Action Cleansing Gel (RM79/100ml) acts as a 2 in 1 makeup remover + cleansing gel which also keeps skin hydrated.
Next up is the Rose Essential Hydrating Toner (RM59/200ml) that freshens, softens and moisturizes skin. This toner can also be used as a deep moisturizing mask by soaking a a mask sheet or cotton pads in it and leaving on your face for 10 minutes. She advised us to apply the products from the middle to the outside, in an upward manner.
Rose Luxury Essence (RM99/30ml) improves dull skin and slows down skin aging. Tiny nano molecules penetrate deep into skin to bring out smooth, supple and radiant skin. Can be added to the day or night cream.
Rose Essential Hydrating and Whitening Day Cream (RM99/50ml) is a combination of Arbutin and Damascus Rose Essential that aims to improve skin moisture and elasticity while inhibiting formation of melanin and uneven skin tone.
Rose Essential Firming Eye Cream (RM118/20ml) delicately eases away eye puffiness and dark circles to form a pair of radiant and glowing eyes. Also works to tighten, moisturize and improve fine lines.
Rose Essential Whitening and Repair Night Cream (RM99/50ml) soothes fatigue accumulated during the day and strengthens skin's natural defenses while providing ample moisture. Despite it's creamy look, it absorbs quickly leaving skin soft and smooth.
I was attracted to the Rose Petal Jelly Mask (RM99/70ml) because of it's clear jelly-like look. There are even pieces of natural organic rose petals inside! 20 minutes with this mask on will reveal skin that's smoother, brighter and moisturized. It makes skin supple and controls sebum. Eva mentioned that the jelly can be eaten and Cindy actually had the guts to try it =O Tasted like honey, apparently..
This Rose Brightening Lift Jelly Eye Mask (RM99/10pcs) absolutely caught my eye with it's delicate pink colour. Also love because it's jelly type since these are cooling and don't fall off your face. It is one of the star products of this series. Functions to reduce eye puffiness and give 2 times effect of hydration and supplying nutrients to reduce fine lines, firm, lift and brighten skin. After using it on your eye, you can even dissolve it in warm water for a rose bath! ^^
The goodies the kind people at Shills provided us with, along with the good food that afternoon.
