Roger & Gallet Skin Care is new – and one of the cleanest and prettiest I’ve seen for a while, packaging wise. I’m intrigued by the idea of the Aura Mirabilis Beauty Vinegar – my on-line research into the history of beauty vinegars has exposed that vinegar was used for all sorts of beauty related things but mainly as a mixer for lead pastes to cover the skin. However, herb infused vinegar was a popular toner for skin (and hair), with fruit and flower vinegar infusions to follow. So, we can say that we’re looking at a re-invention of a traditional beauty product, with a great deal of improvements added. To me, this falls somewhere between a micellar toner and a clarifyer.

You can see where the oils rise to the top of the water based liquid: there are lots of oils in this so that it gives a smoothness on the skin, mainly from more astringent oils such as citrus and it also contains salicylic acid and fruit extracts – and yes, vinegar. The feel of it reminds me of Bioderma Crealine but having tested it out, I’d recommend for oilier skin types as a post-cleanser extra step. If your complexion is dry, it’s not for you. Give it a good shake before you use it.

(Don’t mind me.. I’m in a bird kinda mood!) Roger & Gallet is a heritage brand and I like the way that they’ve used that heritage to revive something and make it a relevant part of a beauty routine today.



As you can see in the main picture, it’s not just the vinegar – there are also oils and moisturising creams under the Aura Mirabilis label I have the Aura Mirabilis cream which can be used day or night (love this – I tried to explain to my mum that you don’t have to be welded to the ‘day’ and ‘night’ concept but I failed). A very top line test reveals that it’s soothing and light.

You can find the whole Roger & Gallet Skin Care range HERE. Beauty Vinegar is £12.95 (although more expensive elsewhere).
