I’m obsessed with all things Rose. Here are some of my rose inspired favorites!
Pink Rose Salt: I love culinary salts and always have a little collection on hand in the kitchen. These pink rose salts have a nice flavor in addition to being absolutely beautiful. Available online from Mountain Rose Herbs.
Rosehip Seed Oil: Rosehip has been used as a facial/cosmetic oil for generations. Mountain Rose Herbs offers this organic one in two sizes. I had a sample and recently bought a full bottle.
A’kin Pure Radiance Rosehip Oil: Another organic rosehip oil from the Australian brand A’kin. I love this product and will definitely purchase again. I use it at night and all the moisture is restored to my face by morning. Available at feelunique.com. I’ve also seen A’kin at T.J.Maxx.
Thayer Witch Hazel Toner in Rose Petal: I’ve used Witch Hazel since I was a teenager. This one smells like granny. Love it! Available on Amazon.
Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream: An exceptionally good day moisturizer and all around exquisite product. Contains rose petal, rose hip, marsh mallow extract, St. John’s Wort, shea butter, rose petal wax and avocado oil. They claim thirty rose flowers go into each tube of Rose Day Cream. I love everything about the Dr. Hauschka range which has been around since 1967. If you feel like a splurge, pick up a tube at Whole Foods or at a slight discount on Amazon. Cult!
Frownies Rose Water Hydrator Spray: Frownies has been making beauty products for 125 years. I love this refreshing rose water spray. The scent is very mild. I keep this in my handbag or on my desk for a quick pick me up. Buy online here or here.
Dr. Bronner’s Organic Pure Castile Soap in Hemp Rose: All Dr. Bronner’s soaps are wonderful and this one smells really nice. Available at Whole Foods or online.
BY TERRY Baume de Rose lip balm: A very luxurious lip balm with a luxurious price. The ingredients feel like magic on the lips. If your lips are just looking for nourishment, you can definitely find cheaper lip balms. If you want luxury in a pot, this is for you. BY TERRY products are in high end department stores or online.
DIOR Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm: Finally, one of my holy grail products. I love, love this lip balm. I use it at night, and in the morning I put it on while I do my make-up to soften my lips before I put on lipstick. Fabulous product! Available at Sephora and department stores.
Are these vintage chenille birds not the cutest things you’ve seen in a long time?! I fell in love at first sight.
