Flowers have always been a symbol of beauty, and rightly so. While there are endless types of stunning perennials, roses constantly top the list. They’ve been used ceremonially and medicinally for centuries. That’s not solely because of their exquisite beauty, but rather their beneficial properties. Loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, roses have astringent properties, moisturizing properties, anti-bacterial properties…the list continues. So it makes sense that rose beauty products are on the rise.
Because many rose beauty products include rose essential oil–and it takes quite a few flowers to make a high concentrate–they tend to be costly. Luckily, there are some products that don’t break the bank and allow you to reap the benefits of these beauties. Even a sensitive nose can handle the sweet fragrance of these 6 rose infused skin care products.
Herbivore Coco Rose Body Scrub – Body scrubs are often the product you never knew you needed until you have it and this coconut and rose scrub is proof. You could DIY a similar mixture (shout in the comments if you’d like a tutorial) or you can give Coco Rose some time in the shower. Your arms, legs–everything–will feel so nourished, you’ll be able to skip your daily moisturizer. You can also just use on your hands for a boost of hydration and a cuticle refresh.
Aesop A Rose By Any Other Name Body Cleanser – Oh, Shakespeare. The thought of true invigoration often falls short with products that smell artificial and feel dense. Aesop’s body wash is the product great showers are made of. The botanical-rich formula is loaded with hints of pepper, cardamomum and of course, rose petal. A small amount goes a long way, leaving you feeling energized and oh so feminine with the lingering hit of blossoms.
Thayer Rose Petal Witch Hazel – Witch hazel is an astringent often used as a toner after washing your face. While it tightens, the added ingredients in Thayer’s version helps nourish and soothe the skin (there’s aloe vera!). Using organic and natural ingredients to amplify our beauty routines is something I’m doing more and more–with this fan favorite, you get all the goodness you need at a crazy low cost.
Korres Wild Rose Daily Brightening and Refining Buff Cleanser – Use Herbivore on the body and Wild Rose on the face. This cleanser gently exfoliates the dead skin off of your face while helping the texture and tone of your skin. Thanks to the vitamin C within, your skin will look more radiant. The all-natural formula can be used daily, but I’d recommend every few days, especially if you’re using another exfoliation method regularly.
Aromatica Rose Absolute First Serum – Like all of these Korean beauty products, Aromatica’s don’t disappoint. Applied after washing your face, this daily serum hydrates and fights back against fine lines. You can even skip toner, because this baby tones on its own. And like many of the products above, it’s all natural.
Rosebud Perfume Co Minted Rose Lip Balm – It wouldn’t be a rose list without using this cult classic. We don’t even need to talk about how many times Rosebud Salve and variations has been included in a list. Because really, it’s that good. The Rosebud Perfume Co opened in 1895–they’ve had a long time to perfect their products. This particular formula is the ideal blend of peppermint and rose and will not dry out your lips or lead to a dependency!
