I love Sub Rosa forever baby

I've been using Sub Rosa Serum on my skin as a moisturizer now for about years. When I run out of it, I feel straight up naked. This is the only stuff I can put on my combination skin that doesn't leave it greasy but also stops it from becoming dry as hell in the winter time. Can't live without it.


I’ve been using sub rosa since 2019 and it has helped my acne prone skin so much! I have fewer breakouts and my skin texture has evened out a lot. Also, wow, the smell is so dreamy, I look forward to massaging it into my face each morning and night. Can’t say enough good things about this holy grail of a product- (plus every other 5th dimension product I’ve used).

Love, routine, and serum magic

My skin and mind/body have gone through a lot moving to an urban area. Since living in Los Angeles, the sub rosa serum has been a critical part of deeper self care, especially as my skin became more sensitive with continual sun and salt water and pollution exposure. I will continue with this routine no matter wherever I go: starting my day with 5 - 10 drops on face, then down my neck, singing while I wait for my tea water to boil. Thank you for keeping me regular (:

second bottle

i started using this (& basically all the other products) in december & i absolutely love it. my skin feels so balanced & soft. this bottle lasts a long time too, even using 10 drops every morning. i re-ordered all the products i use early because i did not want to go even one day without them!

I keep coming back to this

I have combination, sensitive skin. It get especially dry during the winter months. I'm a skincare junkie, and I've tried EVERY expensive oil you can think of: Sunday Riley Juno, everything from Herbivore, Lord Jones, you name it. Nothing compares to Sub Rosa. NOTHING.
