This Spring everything’s coming up roses- at least in the beauty-verse.
The hottest beauty component this season is something that smells pretty sweet, Rose. One of beauty’s heavy hitting multi-takers rose oil is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It calms swollen and red skin and is high in vitamin C which helps protect skin from oxidative damage. The natural oil found in rose is both soothing and hydrating. Products with natural rose derivatives boost skin’s smoothness and softness. The scent is also know to boost your spirits! The smell of rose actually calms the nervous system and acts as a natural anti- depressant!
Whether it’s a scent or an infusion, precious rose oil in all it’s incarnations balances and soothes.
Right now I have three favorite products du Rose at the top of my must-haves list, Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil, Aerin Rose de Grasse Parfum and Chantecaille Rose de Mai Face Oil.
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil is a lightweight and fast-absorbing oil that leaves skin with a healthy glow. Skin looks soft, radiant and renewed. Great for all skin types it contains a restorative blend of natural skin conditioning super-oils that infuse skin with nutrients, balances skin’s moisture, boosts hydration and provides nourishment and moisture. It is also AMAZING on those dry cuticles!
Aerin Rose de Grasse Parfum- from beauty industry royalty, Aerin Lauder, comes this luxe Spring scent made with roses hand-picked and cultivated in the fields of Grasse meticulously crafted with an artisanal attention to detail. At its heart is a fusion of roses including the hundred-petaled Rose Centifolia, hand-picked in Grasse, the French capital of perfumery since the 16th century where the history of fragrance is art.
Chantecaille Rose de Mai Face Oil is the perfect way to brighten skin for Spring. Created from the rare Rose de Mai, which blooms for only three weeks during the month of May in Grasse, France, this key ingredient is rich in vitamin C and possesses powerful anti-aging and purifying properties. Its blend of Rosehip, Evening Primrose, Rose Damascena and Roser Geranium help to nourish skin and leave it looking flawless. This luxe formula melts perfectly into your skin with no greasy residue and can be worn alone or combined with moisturizer and/or foundation.
TIP for using Rose Facial Oils- The oil can actually help drive other active ingredients into your skin so always apply them on top of your moisturizer then give it a few moments to absorb before applying makeup.
