Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I need my skincare to work!
With an overwhelming amount of beauty products out there, it gets more and more difficult to search for the ones you really need at your local store or the internet. There’s now something for every concern, which is great, but, when it comes to sticking to a budget, it’s better to get the right products with outstanding multitasking ingredients.
So let me tell you a little bit about one of the ultimate beauty powerhouses: rose. This ancient ingredient and its derivates, like rose hip and rose water, have various scientifically proven benefits for your skin. This is why brands like Glossier and Fresh have based the the majority of their formulas around them.
Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, rose is also known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial proprieties that can help with the healing of acne prone skin with regular use. Sensitive complexions can also benefit from this gentle ingredient and its moisturizing benefits to calm any redness you’re experiencing.
From lightweight moisturizer and oil to shampoo and body wash, here are the beauty products with rose ingredients to cover every inch of your body with.
1. Garnier SkinActive Water Rose Micellar Cleansing Water. $6.99, Target.com.
One of Garnier’s most popular products has to be their Micellar Water, which removes dirt and makeup effectively without harsh rubbing.
