With the special occasion, I present you the relatively new in town Bulgarian Rose Karlovo skincare haircare bodycare (you name it, they got it!) series products.
And of course, to match the occasion I have to present them in Halloween theme yah? ^_^ (Sorry if I scared you with the skull) Actually I make used of the props from 2012's halloween photoshoot for this pic. Awww.. How I miss doing photoshoots! >w<

Ok enough of the above crap.. hehex.. let's move on to showing the Bulgarian Rose Karlovo products. ^_^
Before I begin.. let us understand about Bulgarian Rose Karlovo..

About Bulgarian Rose Karlovo
The bulgarian Rose factory was founded in 1948 on the basis of distilleries for processing essential-oil raw materials, which existed in the valley of Karlovo.
Until the 60s, the production process in the factory is season al and involves production of essential oils - rose and lavender, and absolutes - rose and lavender. It has supply raw materials to varies international companies for cosmetic purchases. In 2000, Bulgarian Rose Karlovo was created to product its own cosmetic line.

Did you know?
- Instead of using machines, the Rosa Damascena that is used in the products are entirely handpicked by the wonderful gardeners of the Rose Valley in Bulgaria. 
- Every single Bulgarian Rose Karlovo Rose series contain the essence of Rosa Damascena that is hand made by the loving hands of their gentle care takers.
- Bulgaria produces about 70% of all rose oil in the world.
- 1 drop of pure rose essential oil = 60 roses!

Rose Joghurt Gentle Care Washing Gel For Face
I have been given a couple of products and here's the first one, which is a washing gel for face. This product belongs to Rose Joghurt series which I'm going to introduce it later in this post.
It is a rather big bottle at 250ml and the rose scent of this washing gel smells pretty strong but in a really nice way. It is kind of like a milky rose body shower fragrance, the moment I flip up the lid I'll go *snifffffff* Mmmmm~ahhhh~ *starts imagining myself soaked in bathtub with Rose Joghurt washing gel* But mind you, this is for face not for whole body! They carry Rose Joghurt Shower Gel too so do get that for body cleansing.

Washing gel for everyday use. It cleanses skin gently, removes makeup and impurities effectively. Restores water balance in the epidermis. Gel provides extra comfort and a feeling of perfect purity.
Active ingredients: rose oil, rose water, yoghurt extract, olive oil, FucogelR moisturizer, soya proteins
Soya proteins - have a conditioning action on skin thus keep it s purity.
FucogelR - it is an extremely soft polysaccharide which consists of L - fucose, D - galactose and galacturonic acid. 
It is obtained from maize and soybean /GMO free/. It gives exclusive silky feeling and hydrates skin very well.

How to use?
Apply on wet skin in the morning/evening with light massage movements and rinse thoroughly with water.

The washing gel is basically, a gel (lolx~) that is transparent even when spread out. It will only start foaming a little when water is added. After cleaning it off, the back of my hand is dry yet silky smooth and feels slightly moisturised. It does not give me any taut drying feeling.

Rose Revitalising Face Cream Q10
Next up the Q10 Revitalising face cream, it is part of the Cosmetic series "Rose".
It has a subtle rose scent and the rose fragrance do not smell like one that has been altered. Basically Bulgarian Rose Karlovo's rose fragrance are authentic without other added fragrances so you can imagine how natural their rose scent is.

Q10 Revitalising Face Cream is a light cream with hydrating and rejuvenating ingredients. Contains rose water for skin hydration and nourishing. Almond oil is absorbed by the epidermis and regenerates its freshness. Enriched by complex of vitamins A, E, D-panthenol and Q10, Rose cream rejuvenates in depth, prevents dehydration and stimulates cells regeneration.
Active ingredients: natural rose water, Q10, almond oil, vitamin A and E, D-panthenol. No preservatives.

How to use?
Daily use ensures skin elasticity and velvet softness. Apply morning and evening.

Upon uncapping it, there is a seal to prevent product from degradation. If it is not peeled off, the product will have a longer shelf life. Once peeled off, the product has shelf life of a year.

I'm pretty surprised that the cream doesn't feel oily. After spreading it out on back of my hand and lightly pat and get the skin to absorb it, I run my fingers over my hand again. I also rub my fingers to try to feel the oiliness but.... nope, I don't think there's any greasy feeling at all. It also doesn't give my skin much gloss or shine after it is absorbed into the skin.
Now I just hope that this won't make my face appear oily! ^_^ Shall try it soon!~

Lady's Joy Hair Care Liquid Disperse Crystals
This is the one product out of the 3 I have that do not contain any fragrance. I have tried to even put my nose INTO the oil and sniff (nope I did not drown) but I got nothing. It has however a very very.. VERY subtle scent which I can't make out what it is, not to worry it's not weird kind of smell. ^_~

Nourish and strengthen the hair, protect from the UV and humidity effect and act as conditioner preventing the ends from splitting. Using Crystal Disperses technology, the Hair Liquid Disperse Crystals smoothens out rough cuticles of the hair, allowing the hair to strengthen and glow. It gives silky sensation and brilliance to the hair and does not leave an oily trail.

How to use?
Apply a few drops on clean and dry hand and comb along the hairs, do not rinse out.

This Liquid Disperse Crystals hair care oil is really nice and works good for my hair. As my scalp is jinja (very) oily type, I can't apply too much hair products on my hair or near the scalp, be it hair care or hair styling stuffs. However, I do start using hair oil ever since it's made available in the market. It is oil yes, but it is wayyyyy better than other types like lotion, water, cream etc that I have used. Oil tends to tame my damaged hair better, make it smooth and totally not glossy, shiny or oily.
I usually use only a pump (like in below pic) or two for the hair ends and that's it. Do no try to apply to the scalp unless you have jinja dry scalp, then you can apply it on your hair near your scalp (never on your scalp as it may clog pores).
Interestingly, after I apply a little on my hair ends and spread the rest on my hands and nails, the oil got absorbed entirely into my skin... and no oiliness whatsoever. I just feel my nails look shiny and cuticles look soft... nice to know that the oil works good for my hands too! hehehx.. (^∇^)#
↑ Apologies for my ugly fingernails. >,<"

Well, that's all for the initial introduction of the 3 products I have... Now we move on to the other products from the same brand.

Swatch of Serum For Face.
At the event, I also took a swatch on the serum and I really love it. The texture and the after effect of the product being absorbed by the skin really make me feel like buying it to try. It is non-oily, light weight, watery, absorbs really fast.

Rose Joghurt Series
A healthy impact of dairy products had been known to many ancient cultures. Thracians who inhabited the lands of modern Bulgaria 7000 years ago had obtained yoghurt through lactic acid fermentation of milk.
It possesses a complex composition including amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids, which are linked with fat soluble vitamins A, E and D. Milk proteins are absolutely necessary for construction and maintenance of connective tissue in human body. They are a very good conditioner for skin by forming a thin film on it. Essential fatty acids in milk are suitable for maintenance of healthy and firm skin. Carbohydrates energize and reactivate skin cells.
Active Concepts:
- Yoghurt powder - rich in peptides and amino acids, improves the cell metabolism of skin
- AC Yoghurt Dermal Respiratory Factor - ferment synthesized from stimulated live cells of Lactobacillus bulgaricus and isolated from them by high-tech processes. Obtained in this manner, the product acts as PROBIOTIC - increases oxygen consumption of skin cells, promotes cellular oxydation, increases energy reserves and plays an active role in the fight against aging.
Rose oil and rose water are natural products obtained from floweres of oil-bearing rose /ROSA DAMASCENA MILL/. Natural rose oil has a good aromatherapeutic, refreshing and preventive effect against wrinkles.

Perfume "Rose"
Perfume "Rose" is a delicate, fine and sensual scent, embodying the power and finesse of Bulgarian oil-bearing rose.

Aromatherapy Series
This Glycerin Soaps are not available for purchase as of now. They brought it in specially for the event! ^_^

Look how pretty these soaps are! If the boxes are on sale for Christmas, I think it'll be a great idea to gift someone with them.

And also Aromatherapy Bath Balls! Not for sale too but sho cute and totally Christmasy~

Something extra I received at the event were these Refreshing Wipes. It's nice to have these in my bags because I'll never know when I need wipes. Can be used to sanitise my hands and since it contains alcohol, it can clean off stains on clothes too.

And ROSE GALOREEEeeeeee~~~~~ ♥♥♥

Last but not least, ending it with....
