Gemstone Organic Face and Healing cream is a thick cream made from all natural ingredients. Gemstones essence is the key ingredient in this healing face cream. Gemstone Essences are created from select crystals. Each gemstone has powerful and unique healing properties to soften and smooth the skin and promote cell regeneration. The essences are infused into filtered, ionized water to create a highly vibrational H2O, which offers revitalizing energy that is similar to mineral springs.
The Organic Rose Quartz cream is made with gemstone essence from Rose Quartz and other select crystals. Rose Quartz is gentle enough for all skin types. The gemstone essence is blended with natural oils and essential oils. Lavender and Rosemary essential oils promote blood circulation and calm the skin. I was very intrigued to try an organic natural face cream with gemstone essence!
Rose Quartz is our Heart Chakra Crème. This is the stone for Universal Love. Rose Quartz strengthens and balances the physical heart and circulatory system as well as promotes forgiveness and self-love as well as an open heart towards others.

I love that the ingredients are almost 100% organic. Every ingredient, other than the Gemstone Essence, is organic. This is great important to me and I would pay a premium price for 100% organic ingredients. I also appreciate that the cream is scented with organic essential oils.
Most of the ingredients are rated as 0 (no known hazard) by EWG's Skin Deep Database. Aloe Vera Powder is rated as 1 (low hazard) because of potential reproductive effects at moderate doses. Since this ingredient is almost at the end of the ingredients list, it is probably in a much smaller amount and most likely does not pose any hazard.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry area. Best used within 4-5 months. Store in refrigerator to extend shelf life beyond "Best Used By" date.
Usage: Wash hands before use. Use your finger to scoop out a little bit of the cream and apply to face. A little cream goes a long way. The cream is very thick and will take quite a while to absorb, so go light on the cream the first time you use it.
Results: I liked the thickness of the cream and the natural scent. The Lavender and Rosemary essential oil scents are pretty strong when smelling the cream out of the jar. After applying to the skin, the scents go away after a while. The Rosemary essential oil does overpower the Lavender scent. My face felt moisturized after application and the moisture seemed to last the rest of the day.
One thing to note is that the skin on my face felt a little itchy in a few places about 5-15 minutes after applying. This itchiness went away soon thereafter.
My Thoughts: I love the organic and natural ingredients. I also love the Rose Quartz essence. There is something warming about this face cream. This face cream will be my go-to face cream for the winter. The thickness and creaminess of it is perfect for the colder, winter months.
I would recommend this product. Gemstone Organics Rose Quartz Face and Healing cream is thick, rich, and effective at healing and moisturizing the skin. The Gemstone Essence Face Creams are also available in 4 other varieties depending on your skin type and healing needs.
