There’s just something about roses that we love – they are so beautiful in our gardens and smell divine. So, we decided to test the benefits of rose ingredients in our skincare. Since we were impressed, we’re sharing our new rosy glow favorites.
Weleda Wild Rose Intensive Eye Cream
Thanks to Weleda’s Wild Rose Intensive Eye Cream (US $27), our eyes have never seemed brighter. Part of the Wild Rose collection, our fine lines (yes, we only have fine lines) are less noticeable and dark circles have been banished.
Available at Whole Foods
HollyBeth’s Natural Luxury Rose and Geranium Face Moisturizer
We’d never be caught without Hollybeth’s Rose and Geranium Face Moisturizer (US$30). Elixirs for the skin, rose and geranium leave our feeling silky-smooth and vitamin E fights off environmental toxins and the signs of aging.

John Masters Organics Rose Foaming Face Wash
We just love the healing properties of the plantain leaf in this Rose foaming face wash ($31). Not only does it repair skin and soothe irritation, but pure organic essential rose oil improves blood circulation, leaving our sensitive skin perfectly calm.
John Masters Organics
Available at select salons, spas, boutiques, and natural food and health stores nationwide.
Burt’s Bees Evening Primrose Overnight Creme
What we like to think of as simply magic, Burt’s Bees Evening Primrose Overnight Creme with rosehip seed oil ($24.99), leaves our skin glowing. Evening primrose oil, a rich source of fatty acids, promotes healthy skin and rosehip seed oil, high in vitamin C, repairs tissue damage.
Available at health food stores and online at www.burtsbees.ca
The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Body Wash
Whoever coined the term fresh as daisy has never tried The Body Shop’s Moroccan Rose Body Wash ($13). We love to indulge our senses and this soap-free cleansing gel leaves skin feeling refreshed, moisturized and sweet-smelling.

Bhaktiveda Aromatic Bath Salts
After a long day we can’t help but unwind with the unique scent of Bhaktiveda’s Indian Rose essential oil. These 100 percent natural bath salts (US $35), help relax the mind and tone skin and muscles.
