I have written several dozen positive raves and praises for Rosa y Fruita over the years. I have enjoyed and benefited from the products for a long time.
I am now 70 and my appreciation of these formulations is even more intensified. Your products are excellent for the long haul. I have used every single product you have made available over the years and have all of your line you offer now…which is excellent.
I keep using the word excellence when describing these products for a valid reason. They are.
The Pomegranate you offer has made a very remarkable improvement in chest area…i.e. dark age spots and the overall appearance of this area. I really appreciate the Lustre Exotica as it gives a radiance and luminous effect on skin in any light. I have always loved a ‘soft focus’ effect and always looked for that in my choices.
The Camellia cleanser is absolutely remarkable and I love using plain Camellia Oil under the mask followed with Pom and Lustre combo. The mask used couple times a week is like the frosting on the cake! Luxurious and the results are pretty impressive!
I see so many products that come with the promise ‘look ten years younger’. I always wonder why we are required to look ten years younger? As if we have no value or self worth UNLESS we look ten years younger. I think a more realistic goal would be to look ten years healthier!
I love all of your products; have never been disappointed with any of them and I know my skin is healthy using them. There are a multitude of good products out there that address various issues, real or imagined -and many work amazingly well up to a point. Seem to eventually over time leave skin dull and lifeless with no ‘inner glow’…maybe smooth but ‘masky’, like no blood is circulating anywhere; and certainly not much luminosity or radiance.
Your formulations are perfection and I think you already know that but I wanted to share my personal experience and appreciation of them. The choice of ingredients and the quality of ingredients; then the formulation of those ingredients are simply performance orientated to the max.
I’d like to add I have always been impressed with the customer service, personal, one on one; I have never sent an inquiry or e mail in all these years that has not been answered promptly. I, as a customer, really admire that. The shipping is speedy, always…. and the packaging is elegant. My orders have always arrived safely and well packaged. This is another thing I appreciate.
I also love the new website; easy to navigate and all the info you need readily available and contact info provided. This is a long ‘I love Rosa y Fruta’ letter but praise is always warranted where it is deserved. Tobey, wishing you many many many more years of providing these outstanding products.
I bought your products at the Raw Spirit Festival in Santa Barbara. Remember me?
I am absolutely loving your products. The results are real and measurable, unlike other “high quality” products I have purchased in the past. Within days of beginning to use your products, my skin’s redness was greatly minimized. Now, about three weeks later, I have not a single blemish on my face and my pores are clear. So – the adult acne seems to literally be gone, and the rosacea is no longer an upsetting daily reality. Yay
Further, I want to let you know that I really look forward to putting the products on. They feel and smell good. I LOVE the antioxidant (Nectar de Passion). I can feel it working when it’s on – it’s great medicine. So I have been over-indulging; I put it on whenever I am at home without make-up because I can feel it working. I’ve been using the camellia oil (“Lustre Exotica”) as a facial moisturizer. I realize it’s not the intended use, but my skin loves it and it gets fully absorbed quickly.
I was concerned that the oils would clog my pores, but it has been just the opposite. The products feel great, smell great. I don’t want to sound over the top, but truly your products are the first that have made a difference. The products I’ve bought in the past at department stores, at Whole Foods, or at beauty stores – such as Clinique, Dermalogica and even Jurlique – do not have near the effectiveness of the Rosa y Fruta products. The product lines I’ve mentioned here have numerous ingredients. Your products are so simple – yet they are very very pure, and much more effective.
In writing such a glowing testimonial, I worry that it sounds a little like BS. But truly, I mean every thing I’m saying here. I feel much more relaxed about my skin now.
I also love the Rosa bourbonia and rose facial cream.
So – lovely product line you’ve got there! And it was nice to be able to buy them from you in person.”

I wanted to share some amazing changes with you. During the last couple of weeks my skin has gone from being sensitive/reactive combination-oily to very oily to – NORMAL!
I am amazed at how the ambrosia seems to help my skin rejuvenate itself. There were none of the usual monthly eruptions – 2 bumps appeared and promptly disappeared! I find my skin is more resilient, smooth and fine pored. My skin feels thoroughly nourished and hydrated – this is not a sensation that washes away – which is what I experienced with the highend cosmeceutical brands I used previously.
I use the dulce fresca as my morning cleanser and find it aromatherapeutic. I am surprised at how gentle yet effective it is. I find the scent uplifting and using the dulce is a joyful way to start my day.
My dissatisfaction with the highend cosmeceutical brands prompted me to try organic brands and with your products I have found that a long ingredients list containing bogus scientific sounding ingredients with virtually unpronouncable names is NOT the key to good skincare. Excellent, high quality ingredients are key.
I would like to know if there are any storage precautions I should take to help the ambrosia maintain its freshness? (I scoop out the creme with a clean spatula and not my fingers)
I look forward to trying the camellia oil when you receive the bottles.Thanks again.
I use many skincare products and I am rapidly, willingly and appreciatively honing down to yours! … I am so pleased with your products….every one of them! I have every one of them…that are offered on your website…so geared toward them that I ordered trial sizes of my favs to carry with me to have on hand at any moment….and to introduce my friends to. The Ambrosia de Rosa cream is such a delight to use and the effects are stupendous (defies proper description)..I couldn’t write elegantly enough to do this justice. All of the products seem perfectly suited to my ageing skin. I appreciate your efforts and dedication to keeping your ingredients quality. I may not always know exactly what I want, but I can and do recognize extensive and impeccable quality. Quality trumps quantity every time! I once read somewhere that ageing is mandatory; being logical about it is optional…..your formulations; all of them ..defy logic. You CAN look wonderful at ANY age with the proper ratios of nurturing, high-quality products…and I have found this in your exceptional line of skincare. I will be looking forward to any new formulations you create. This is one line that anything that was offered, I would buy sight unseen, I am that convinced of the efficacy and quality of anything you obviously extensively research and provide to offer ‘the’ best for your customers. I must also add that your customer service is excellent….packaging is perfect. I hope to enjoy many years of Rosa y Fruta.

It is with much pleasure to express to you how much I enjoy using your skin care collection. I love how it is simple and yet, at the same time, so luxurious. Never before has my skin responded so wonderfully. The careful attention you give to every detail in creating your formulas with the purest, highest quality, most nourishing, healing, and beautifying ingredients has made all the difference in my skin. I am so impressed with what you offer and believe it to be the finest of skin care one could ever use. It has been everything I’ve been looking for and more. You go a step beyond to ensure your clients receive the best in service. The times you have personally contacted me by phone or email to answer my questions or help with my order were so nice and refreshing. You made me feel like I was more of a friend instead of just a client. I appreciate you for your dedication and hard work in bringing to us Rosa Y Fruta. I am so happy to have found your website and look forward to enjoying your skin care collection for many years to come. Thank You.
May God Bless,
Just writing to say, I love, love, love your products!!! (Gee, betcha don’t hear that enough, huh? Ha ha)
I have been using them all, and they are truly exquisite. I love the Ambrosia what a difference it has made in my 41 year old skin.
I think I may have enabled quite a few ladies to visit your site on the Essential Day Spa forum!! I had asked if any of them had heard or used your products and at that time no one had, but of course I ranted and raved, so I think you may see some eager ladies from EDS coming over here! I love being able to honestly promote a product. I have been duped and disappointed so many times, but not so with you. I was introduced to RYF by the ladies of the Delphi forums, so I feel it is my pleasure to enable the ladies on other skincare forums that I visit!!!
I can not wait to try your other new products. They sound heavenly.
Thanks so much!…Can I just tell you that it (the Ambrosia) cleared up my entire jawline which was very broken out? I’m so thrilled!

After reading the testimonials, the amount of research put into each product my expectations were very high. I decided to start with the “Lustre Exotica”, beauty and spa oil, from the Camellia Collection. I live in the NE part of the country. We have forced dry heat. This added toward naturally dry skin has put me in search of a product that would soothe my skin, and would last longer than a half hour. Further, like many people I have suffered some skin related side effects from medication (chemo). This product went beyond my expectations. I have been out in the cold all day and when I touch my face I still feel a velvety smoothness WITHOUT an oily look. Normally I must reapply an oil base product throughout the day. Have yet to do so with this product!
I do not think the products are overpriced when compared to products in department stores. They say if you can’t pronounce the ingredients do not wear or eat. Your site and informational sent with the products is very comprehensive. It is obvious that much time, research and love went into the production of ROSA Y FRUTA
I trust the products and the ‘producer’ enough to allow you to guide me through the purchase of other products from your line. My goal is to keep my skin soft and supple. I want to be proactive as it relates to the aging process. Thus far I have the beauty and spa oil and the face and eye cream. What should be next purchase? I believe these product will last quite awhile and are more than worth the cost.
I look forward to hearing from you as it relates knowing how to care for my skin.
Please share my testimonial as many woman will want to know of a non toxic remedy for dry (any) skin concerns.
Thank you Elizabeth.
I have received my Ambrosia and have been using it for about a week and just wanted to write and tell you how much I LOVE IT. It has got to be the best product I have ever put on my skin.
…now, don’t go thinking that I sit around stroking my face all day (only part of the day)…but it truly is velvety and I didn’t have my ‘monthly’ ginormous chin breakout that I normally do… a miracle, I tell you!

Before finding your products, I hesitated, nay, dreaded putting on makeup. At the age of 49 makeup made my face look dry and my wrinkles look more pronounced. It wasn’t until I started using your products that my face began to feel more supple and soft. I enjoy how the Ambrosia de Rosa and the Rubesa de Rosa make my skin look and feel, with and without makeup. The truth is that your products make me feel beautiful. Thank you for all the work and research you have done to bring these products into my home.

I wanted to let you know that I received the 2 bottles of high quality Rubesa Oil about a week ago. Hugs to you! Since I have been using your products, a big brown age or sun spot (on my upper right cheek just under the eye area) that appeared over the last year and was getting consistently worse has begun to fade to a very considerable extent (at least 50%) and that is after only a short time of use as you know. An unexpected bonus! I believe this cream must be penetrating the seven layers of skin as you state, to accomplish this. Just placed an order for the Ambrosia full size. Do not want to run out.
P.S. I am hooked on the fragrance. Was a bit different at first, but now I’m addicted to it.
Merry Christmas! Mmm Mmm is right on that chocolate mask of yours! Wow, wow wow wow. My skin felt sooo soft and the lines on my forehead softened before my eyes. I know I’m not suppose to eat it, but I took a little lick anyway. Yum yum…sweet and delicious. I want to get my fingers on that new Ambrosia, but I’m going to finish the Ambrosia that I have first. I love my Ambrosia and can hardly believe it can get better. When are you coming out with the coconut hibiscus body scrub? Can you make some for me now? I don’t need a label. Have a Merry Christmas!

I have been using your products for some many months now. I recently purchased your newly formulated Champagne de Rosa and your Ambrosia Gold Deluxe. These 2 are the most wonderful products. I am so very pleased and so is my ‘mature’ skin. I was having wonderful results with all of your products, but these 2 in particular have taken my skin to the next level! When you receive unsolicited compliments on your skin (at my age) you are quite aware that what you are doing is having an impact! I am so appreciative of your efforts, knowledge and formulations and again, very appreciative of the quality of all of your products. I have never been so pleased with my skin….thank you………Happy New Year to you and yours
I have been using your products for almost a year now! oh my gosh, the lines on my forehead have disappeared!!! I did not notice it until yesterday. I knew my skin was looking great but didn’t pinpoint the line factor. The change was gradual so I guess I forgot that deep lines use to live up there (L2= I chuckle). The vanishing lines are not the only thing that is making my face look great…I have this healthy glow I did not have before. You need to add this to your testimonials because women should know.
I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know that I absolutely love the blue lotus ambrosia. It is simply the most beautiful cream I have ever used. The texture is amazing and the scent of it can only be described as heavenly. I look forward to applying it every morning and evening and have had three people asking me what I’ve been using since I got it on Saturday. The special thing about this cream is that it makes the skin look very glowing immediately after application and it keeps the skin moisturised all day…
I have been a skin care professional for about eight years and a holistic health practitioner for almost twenty years. I have tried and researched many, many products and most of them aren’t good for the skin! Some are fine, but I was really looking for a truly organic line and, basically, something outstanding.
Well I found it with Elizabeth O’Rourke and Rosa y Fruta! Elizabeth standards are the highest I have ever found in any skin care product line and company. Her commitment to purity is unrivalled. She is unfailingly honest and is a consummate professional. Her products are the best for the skin, plus they smell heavenly and feel divine! And, best of all, they work and you are not being harmed by using them!
Not only is Rosa y Fruta the best skin care on the market, Elizabeth is a kind, compassionate and caring woman whose warmth just shines through in every conversation. I feel so blessed to know her and, best of all, my skin is so blessed to have Rosa y Fruta!
It’s just arrived! And everything looks and smells beautiful (as always). I really can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for my skin. I have spent years and $1,000s trying to find something that not only didn’t upset my extremely sensitive skin, but that actually helped it to look better. For the first time in I don’t know how long, I really love the way my skin looks and feels. Please don’t without them! And I will probably be ordering more very soon–I can’t wait to try some of the new oils, and to check out the reformulated Lustre de Fruta (which I love, by the way–the first cream I’ve ever used that doesn’t make me red immediately after applying it. I’m looking forward to alternating the Lustre and the Geisha, which smells absolutely incredible…)
