Spring is in the air, which means it’s time for the annual rose beauty roundup. I really like subtle rose fragrances in skincare and slightly stronger ones in my body oils and potions. There are studies that show rose oil can have numerous therapeutic effects, from analgesic to physiological; for me it’s definitely up there with lavender as a calming, comforting scent. Here are a few of my rose beauty wants and recs…
SUMMER FRIDAYS In the spirit of transporting myself into a summer mindset, Summer Fridays has added a rose R&R Mask (£46, below) to its capsule product line-up. (more…)
Lipstick boxes daubed with painterly flowers are a thing. I’m loving the look of this Rodin X Vanessa Traina collab, although I’ve never tried Rodin’s lip products. Are they good? I like the idea of the lip and cheek oils (below), which I imagine give a barely-there stain, and they’re packed with safflower seed and sunflower seed oils so even though it says it’s a matte finish, they shouldn’t be drying. Buy them at Liberty and The Line.
Spring is my favourite time for beauty discoveries, I like all the complexion-enlivening unguents that come along and the coral-to-tan colour palettes. There are some big launches coming up later (Glossier is finally coming to the UK!) but here’s what’s on my radar at the moment…
1/ JASMINE ON MY MIND Fragrance and skincare-wise, everything seems to be infused with jasmine right now. (more…)
One for rose-o-philes (I bet there really is a word for that). This has just arrived on counter from Aerin, a nourishing, radiance-boosting rose cream that doubles as an overnight mask. Aerin Rose Night Table Cream & Overnight Mask (£60) sounds great for autumn-winter skin TLC and I love the comforting, old fashioned name. Time to make room on your vanity trays!
