The month of February is filled with love, Valentine’s Day celebrations, the color pink, fresh roses, and for me, rose-infused beauty products! My house smells like a rose garden all month long and I try to use products infused with rose oil or rose petals. I think it’s such an underrated and underused ingredient especially in cosmetics! The benefits of using skincare products with roses are endless!
Roses act as a natural anti-inflammatory, a powerful antioxidant, a toner, and a moisturizer. The scent of roses can also reduce levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in our bodies! It’s truly a magical flower!
Some of the products on the market that contain natural rose ingredients can be on the pricier side because of the process of how ingredients are extracted. This shouldn’t deter you from going out and searching for affordable rose-infused products though! They’re out there! And as for the pricier ones, I’d recommend investing in just one. Some really are worth it!
So, let’s jump into my favorites! Below are the products I’ve been using and LOVING this month! My skin has never been more hydrated and glow-y and I think that might have something to do with all the dreamy rose-infused products I’ve been using!
Lush: Rosy Cheeks
I am so in love with this fresh face mask from Lush! I’ve tried so many from Lush and this one works the best for my skin type! It’s so gentle, calming, it smells amazing, and it leaves my face feeling so soft and restored! This is great for sensitive, irritated skin!
Measurable Difference: Rosehip Oil
I picked this up from TJ Maxx last summer. For the price point ($8), I’m really impressed with the natural ingredients and how moisturizing it is! I use this to remove my liquid lipstick! If you use a liquid lipstick that doesn’t budge, this will remove it effortlessly without drying out your lips!
Fresh: Rose Face Mask
This is one of those pricier products that I was talking about. This face mask will set you back $62….. unless you received the birthday gift from Sephora this year which included a travel-sized version of this liquid gold! This face mask has actual rose petals and a clearer formula that will leave your skin bright and hydrated! I’d recommend grabbing a sample of this at Sephora just to give your skin a little treat! It’s absolutely decadent!
L’Occitane: Ultra Soft Balm in Rose
I’m really not much of a balm person but I couldn’t pass up this purse-sized, rose scented balm and the cause behind it! Proceeds from this purchase helped support women’s entrepreneurship in Burkina Faso. I put this balm on before bed and it restores moisture to my lips and locks it in until morning while giving off a lovely hint of fresh rose petals!
Lush: Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb
Ok, ok… I know I’ve mentioned this on the blog already but it’s seriously amazing. The smell is intoxicating (in a good way) and once it’s dropped in the tub, fresh rose petals emerge from the core! I can’t imagine a better way to treat your whole body than a bath infused with rose oil and fresh rose petals!
Kylie Cosmetics: Valentine’s Collection Liquid Lipstick Minis
If you were lucky enough to get your hands on anything from Kylie’s Valentine’s Collection, then you know the obsession is real! I snagged the minis before they sold out and I’m so glad I did! I was a little shocked at how small they were compared to pictures but they really are mighty! I’m not sure if she revamped her formula or what but I’m crazy about these! Every color is to die for. I’ve used them every day since I got them! Of course they’re not infused with rose petals but I had to include these! The blush/rose shades count for something!
