Originally formulated for professional treatments, this one step treatment will cleanse, tone, and exfoliate. As Step 1 in our 5-Step Facial Regimen, our unsurpassed formula will not only cleanse the skin's upper surface, but will help to eliminate toxins without stripping all of the natural oils. Best for Most skin types.
The synergy of essential oils and nutritional botanicals aides circulation when applied in conjunction with the Benedetta’s own OMR massage-in technique. This cleanser purifies the skin as it rehydrates and exfoliates, bringing into balance to pH of the skin. Our rosacea customers have reported less redness with a smoother skin surface.
Rich in therapeutic-grade nourishing oils and antioxidants, this revolutionary cleanser will do a beautiful job, whether you have normal, dry, or oily skin. When applied regularly, this simple, time-proven procedure will promote elasticity, leaving the skin supple and hydrated.
Day & Night: Use morning and night in accordance with the Benedetta Facial Regimen. Follow with Steps 2 through 5.
Apply a quarter size of product to dry skin. Massage over entire face and neck in a circular fashion until créme has disappeared and an oily film remains. Pay attention to areas of congestion and bumpy skin, massaging these areas longer. Leave on 1-3 minutes for a therapeutic treatment. Rinse with a wet wash cloth or leave on a minimum 10 minutes for a gentle exfoliation treatment.
May be used as a spot treatment at night for blemishes that have not broken through the skin (such as fatty deposits and blackheads) and to help lighten age spots over time.
There is no need to use a separate toner as the cleansing and toning process is complete after use of this product.
OMR: This technique is used to inhibit stretching and pulling of the skin. This simple yet effective procedure should be practiced whenever applying product below the eyebrows.
Open mouth to a comfortable position while pressing lips over teeth. The wider the mouth is opened, the more resistance will be felt. Do not overdo this or open to a point of discomfort. Massage is done using firm, continuous pressure.
This authentic formula is based on my experience of creating customized aromatherapeutic treatments for my clients. The common protocol for the first stage of the facial treatment was the same for most. The goal was to stimulate circulation, move the lymph, and allow purification at deeper layers while moving waste through the skin and back into the blood stream. This relatively simple procedure using fatty oils and essentials — no soap or surface cleansers — now needed to be a relatively universal treatment. The challenge was to design a preparation that was capable of creating similar, if not better, results for home use, and get it stabilized in a bottle without a large percentage of petrochemicals and adulterants.
Taking 3 years to perfect, the Rosemary & Geranium Purifying/Massage-in Crème Cleanser is the foundation to the Benedetta Facial Regimen. Used by professional estheticians in the first and crucial step to performing the Benedetta Holistic Facial, sometimes massaged into the skin for as long as 40 minutes.
The Rosemary & Geranium Crème Cleanser has surpassed what I set out to accomplish in a cleanser. After more than 20 years in the marketplace, this remarkable, authentic preparation has far surpassed expectations.

After cleansing with Rosemary & Geranium Créme Cleanser, apply 1/2 pump of "The" Eye Crème to middle and index fingers. Pat around boney ridge of eyes from inside corner above eyes to inside corner below eyes. Use daily as a preventative. Avoid getting product directly in eyes.
If your eye area has a yellow tinge after using "The" Eye Crème, apply less. A little goes a long way!
"The" Eye Crème was not part of the original 9 Benedetta preparations launched February 1, 1996. I felt the key need for eye crémes were to prevent and rid the skin of fine wrinkles. With that in mind, I saw no reason to cause further expense to my clients and customers when the existing regimen addressed this need.
However, the demand piqued my interest and I started my own research asking the questions: 1. What is the primary reason people want an eye crème? 2. What don’t they want?
It was no surprise to hear wrinkle reduction was the primary reason and the secondary was dark circles and puffiness. I was surprised, however, to find that many felt they could not use most eye creams due to the irritating oil content of the product, as most are wax or oil based. I set out to first develop an essential oil blend that moved stagnation without stripping the delicate eye area. As with all of Benedetta botanical preparations, no one ingredient stands alone without a synergy to support it.
The next steps were to complete the synergy with bioavailable non-oily plant materials that addressed the issues discussed along with protection and long lasting correction. It took about 2 years before completion, as one of the raw materials had to be developed. Once in place, I launched with confidence that this non-oily, highly active, antioxidant rich formula would be a success. I am proud to offer this authentic handcrafted, small batched "The" Eye Crème. Developed for the delicate eye area, this exquisite preparation is designed to work holistically to rejuvenate, correct, and protect, leaving no oily residue or drag on the skin.

This is our newly packaged Nighttime Repair Serum, previously part of the Ombra Del Sole Series.
After cleansing, apply 3-4 pumps to face, neck and chest. Let soak in, then apply Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir of choice.
Back in 1986 when I started the process of creating the Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixirs, created to use under oils and primarily for nighttime renewal and balance, I did not foresee a time that I would create a Nighttime Serum.
Well… never say never! About two years ago I started investigating some plant nutrients that could be made into waters and extracts to feed the skin on the water saturation level we all crave. Many of these botanicals have a rich antioxidant profile unequaled in the pharmaceutical world for bioavailability where it counts.
I’m talking about the mainstream vitamins in many trendy skin care products including Vitamin C, K, A, amino acid peptides, stem cell therapy, and of course hyaluronic acid.
The idea crossed my mind to create a non-lipid formula that would saturate the skin with free radical fighting nutrition while we slept. I wanted another process to compliment the daytime usage of the rich antioxidant oils we use to filter and protect our skin.
Voila! The Nighttime Repair Serum was born. In standing with our Benedetta ethic of unifying ingredients with strategic purpose, this formula does not disappoint.
The Purpose: To feed the skin with bioavailable plant material that supports the skin while it repairs atmospheric damage during sleep.
The Foundation: By supporting the skin’s natural immunity and disarming cells from free radical degradation, the skin’s ability to repair and regenerate is pronounced. The skin recognizes clean unadulterated molecules from plant sources to penetrate and sustain the skin’s overall terrain. This said, a clean nourishing diet with fresh air and water is key to our largest organ’s sustainability. As all of our body’s cells, tissues, organs and systems work in unison to oxygenate one another and lead a healthy existence.

Now with Amalaki Oil!
Rich in antioxidants, these intensive oil treatments aid the skin's ability to protect against UV rays and fight free radical damage as Step 4 in our 5-Step Facial Regimen. Antioxidants are known as free radical scavenging substances, helping to protect the skin from oxidation, and therefore improving its resistance to environmental damage. Easily transported into the epidermis, these nutritious cellular regenerators can often have a greater effect than a moisturizer alone.
Our Geranium Oil was developed for oily or congested skin. Why use a facial oil on oily skin? Most often oil-free or oil-reducing products confuse the sebaceous glands into producing more oil, creating a never-ending cycle. The combination of plant oils and essential oils in our blends is highly antiseptic and can help to balance oil production.
Apply 4-6 drops Antioxidant Facial Oil immediately after spraying with Crystal Radiance Hydrating Elixir. Massage into the skin evenly with fingertips.
If the oil becomes solid, run the bottle under hot water to liquefy.
Customers tell us a .5 oz bottle lasts 4-6 months, depending on usage.
The Precious & Nourishing Antioxidant Facial Oils: Palmarosa and Geranium, were developed to address environmental harm associated with depleted, unhealthy skin and aging.
Antioxidants have long been reputed to fight free radical damage, with regards to targeting cell oxidation. It was therefore my inclination to create a formula that focused on protection through delivering nutrients further into the dermis of the skin to address free radical elimination.
With this in mind the quest was to find nutrients in the botanical world that have antioxidant protection and anti-oxidizing effects often caused by the atmosphere, including but not limited to UVA and UVB rays.
Protection then is described as something that assists the skin’s ability to receive and utilize nutrients that further its longevity and survival level, as opposed to conventional protection, meaning to a cover the skin with a mineral or chemical block. Such products blanket the skin with a barrier to keep the sunrays from penetrating and are commonly known as a Sun Protection Factor.
Instead, the Precious & Nourishing Antioxidant Oils deliver a synergy of botanical nutrients that enhances our immunity and skin strength to combat degradation at the cellular wall. Otherwise, we are only preventing burning and not considering what lies beneath.
Evidence has shown that these chemicals can be dehydrating to the skin’s early and rapid aging process, hence contributing to the breakdown of the skin’s longevity, strength and endurance. All of which are renewed with specifically formulated nutrient-rich synergies, with the addition of bioavailable antioxidants.
It is important to note that although we do not incorporate SPFs, evidence has shown that with the use of our Precious & Nourishing Oils, the sun is less able to burn the skin and cause redness. This is due in part to their natural antioxidant filtering effect.
For prolonged outdoor exposure use our Defense & Repair Elixir, Defense & Repair Oil and Defense & Repair Crème from the Ombra Del Sole Series of Benedetta preparations.

Be the first to ask a question about this.
It is a terrific exfoliater. After using I had some very mild, yet complete gentle flaking of the skin on my face. I hope with more frequent use I will see better results and brighter skin
Product produces a light & calming effect on my face.
I am still using the last of my previous Cream Cleanser and Elixir so I have not yet begun using these new ones. I really like both of those as well as the Rosemary Moisturizing Cream, the Nighttime Repair cream and The Eye Cream.
This elixir tightens my pores & makes my face tingle! I love the effect!
I have dry skin and use the neroli elixir with my morning and evening facial wash, but I enjoy spritzing my face and hair with the rosemary during the day.
