I realized recently that most of the skin care products that I use regularly all have one ingredient in common: Rose. So I decided to feature them in this “Rose” themed beauty post (and my first beauty post!). They are my fave skin care products right now and here’s why:
Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay: Made with Mediterranean rose clay.
Once a week (when I’m not lazy) I put on a mask. I usually do sheet masks, but I particularly like this one because my skin feels fresh, clean and radiant.
Rosehip Oil: I got mine in Mexico while I vacationing there. You can buy rosehip oil anywhere but it needs to be 100% pure, cold-pressed and unrefined.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m scared of aging and I will do anything to not age (being vegetarian helps!). One of the benefits of rosehip oil is anti-aging! So, after cleansing and before going to sleep, I put a couple of drops in my palm and apply it on my skin and neck. The next day, I feel like my skin is moisturized and has a nice little glow to it. The benefits of rosehip oil are that it regenerates the skin, reduces wrinkles, sun spots, UV damage and scars, prevents stretch marks, and it’s an excellent moisturizer for dry skin.
French Girl Organics Rose Lip Polish: Rose scent from Organic Rose Otto and Rose Geranium and Peppermint.
A must for my lips, they tend to get dry easily with the cold weather, so exfoliating your lips helps to remove dry skin, moisturize and plump your lips.
Heritage Store Rosewater: Floral scent of real roses.
I use it as a toner; it’s refreshing and has a nice delicate smell. After cleansing, I just spray it all over my face and then I put my moisturizer (in the morning) or Rosehip oil (at night).
