Happy National Fragrance Day! For over a decade, rose has been my favorite scent. For years, I’ve been addicted to rose oil and the moment I smelled Roses De Chloé became obsessed. I also have Diptyque rose candles scattered around my house. But it’s not just the fragrance of fresh roses that makes me smile. Roses have incredible beauty benefits as well.
Roses calm your skin and reduce redness. They help with acne. They have antioxidants to combat aging. And they the scent doesn’t only smell delicious but it’s also said to help with relaxation. It’s amazing how magical such a pretty flower can be! So to celebrate National Fragrance Day, I’m sharing nine rose beauty products that I currently use in heavy rotation:
Rose Face Oil
The other week, I introduced you to beauty oils. When it begins to warm up, I swap out my heavier facial oil for Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil. It’s great for applying before makeup to get extra dewy skin and leaves my face incredibly moisturized. Plus, how gorgeous is the bottle?
Rose Night Cream
When I’m feeling extra dehydrated, I add Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial to the mix. I wake up with my skin feeling extra soft and hydrated.
As I mentioned, I’m obsessed with Diptyque Roses scented candles. I burn them whenever I’m doing my makeup or catching up on Homeland or Empire. The smell isn’t too overpowering and it leaves my home with a happy, fresh scent.
Rose Cleansing Wipes
I have beauty wipes everywhere from my car and gym bag to my beauty cabinet. They’re such an easy on-the-go cleanse. My favorite part about This Works In Transit No Traces wipes is the tingly feeling your face gets, thanks to the mix of rosewater and mint.
Rose Lip Balm
Clearly I’m obsessed with everything in the Korres rose line. Their Wild Rose Lip Butter not only moisturizes, but leaves a soft red tint, as if you just ate a cherry popsicle.
Rose Makeup Remover Oil
I’ve been using makeup remover oil to nourish my skin after shoots. By Terry Cellularose Cleansing Oil is formulated with white rose, which I find very calming on my skin.
Rosewater Facial Spray
If you only want to buy one rose product, I cannot rave enough about rosewater spray. In this GRWM video I mentioned how I use my Mario Badescu Facial Spray to hydrate before makeup. But it also feels incredible after a work out or anytime you’re in need of a refresh. I actually keep it by my computer and do a quick spray sometimes when I’m drowned in emails to wake up!
Rose Hand Cream
I’ve been carrying Le Couvent Des Minimes Moisturizing Hand Cream in my purse for the past few months. It has a subtle scent of roses and berries and isn’t too greasy on my hands.
While many flowery fragrances are overpowering, Roses De Chloé is as light as ever. I wear it year-round but it’s especially great for a fresh, feminine summer scent.
Do you have any favorite rose beauty products?
