I can’t believe how January has flown by! As we are almost in February, Valentine’s day is approaching and only a couple of weeks away. The first thing that pops into my head when it comes to Valentines are roses as it symbolises love, passion and beauty. Self-care is so important right now and I’ve been looking into products that are natural and include Rose as an ingredient. It is good for the soul and mind to indulge and to treat yourself with skincare products that are good for the skin and that smell wonderful.
"I want to encourage women to embrace their own uniqueness. Because just like a rose is beautiful, so is a sunflower, so is a peony. I mean, all flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that’s like women too". – Miranda Kerr, The Victoria’s Secret model, to New York Times.
“The Rose is without an explanation; She blooms, because she blooms.” – Angelus Silesius
Roses have to be one of my favourite flowers, they look beautiful with the delicate formed petals and have the most gorgeous scent. All of our dresses in the Green collection are named after plants or flowers. Such as our dress named Rosea inspired by roses and is in a luxurious floral jacquard fabric.
Read on to see the type of products that include Rose as an ingredient to help you practice self-love and to take time out to truly care for yourself.....
This limited edition massage bar is infused with rosewater and argan oil which allows it to glide over your skin, leaving it hydrated and refreshed. Argan oil is an antioxidant and has many benefits for skin and hair, it helps to soothe and protect the skin along with the added gem of Ruby Cocoa Liqour. The rose absolute is sourced from a regenerative project in Pakistan. It is a coveted perfume material which helps to rejuvenate the skin and is used in a number of Lush products. With the regenerative project, Lush have joint ventured with a partner in Pakistan and a Turkish rose supplier to grow roses without the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticide. I love this venture that Lush have established and will benefit the farmers and the land to return to organic and traditional practices.
Lush are known for their bath bombs and I love the display they have as you enter the stores which looks so colourful and enticing. The Heart beat bath bomb includes ingredients such as Geranium Oil, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa butter, rose oil and Pakistani rose absolute from the regenerative project. I love the golden heart detail and the cocoa butter to leave you skin super soft along with the scent which is shared from the rose jam collection.
This bath oil is perfect for a relaxing and soothing bath especially during the cold wintry nights. Thousands of rose petal are used in the oil to leave the skin subtly scented. As well as the rose oil it includes geranium oil and sesame oil. The scent helps to de-stress your mind and the combination of oils to leave your skin nourished. I love how this bath oil has vegan ingredients, cruelty free and it is 100% recyclable.
This is a multi-purpose skincare product and is suitable for all skin types. As noted on the packaging it is a ‘One pot wonder’ with antioxidant-rich oils. It is award-winning with organic wild rosehip oil and a blend of organic geranium oil and patchouli essential oils. It can be used as an intensive moisturising treatment, cleanser, highlighter to add a glow to your cheeks or as a lip balm along with many other ways.
Fresh products are inspired by nature and use natural ingredients such as this rose face mask which is infused with real rose petals. This face mask is a gel consistency and features key ingredients such as pure rosewater, cucumber, aloe vera gel and rich green tea. These are perfect ingredients to leave your skin looking healthier and well hydrated.
This body glow oil is blended with organic oils such as Argan, Sunflower, Jojoba and Rosehip fruit oil. It also includes Coconut and Palm kernel oils that are sustainably sourced. They are antibacterial and leave the skin well-nourished and hydrated with a light rose fragrance on the skin. I do love oils whether they are for the hair and skin as they really help with dry conditions. I really like how this particular oil is versatile and can be used either on the face or body - it can be added to a bath soak, massaged straight onto the skin or added to the pulse points as a perfume.
There is nothing more relaxing then unwinding in a long soothing bath soak. The Sultry Rose salts are packed with essential oils such as Black pepper oil, Rose geranium flower oil and Clary sage oil. The Epsom salts and Himalayan rock salts help to relax tired achy muscles and flush out toxins leaving you feel rejuvenated. It is scented with Organic Rose flower water to fill your bath soak with a wonderful aroma.
