The Weekend Post #6: Rose, Rose And More Rose!


This week I've been finding myself using quite a few rose related products and I thought I'd share my thoughts with you on them this weekend. Rose isn't usually a scent I'd lean towards (as I'm not a huge fan) but I wouldn't outline using any rose scented products at all.
First on the list is the Aromatherapy Hydrating Rose Cleanser. I received this is Red's latest magazine. If you didn't already know, Red are currently giving out some Aromatherapy products. They are three to choose from: the Hydrating Rose cleanser, Rose Face Mask and a Rose Moisturiser  I was on the hunt for the Rose Face Mask, but after searching in numerous WHSmith's, Tesco's etc... I got bored and plumped for the cleanser instead. I was pleasantly surprised with how moisturising this cleanser was and how soft and smooth it left my face feeling. The minute I applied this to my face I immediately felt the effects and my skin feels set for the day after using this. Even with my oily T-Zone.  
Next up is the Balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve, to me this smells very herbal-like and isn't really my cup of tea, but I managed to look past that. It's 100% natural and claims to 'plump, smooth and hydrate' your lips. When I've applied this my lips do feel plumper, and the lip balm feels to sink into my lips instead of just sitting on top of them. (I can't stand it when a lip balm just sits on top of your lips!)  Due to the scent, this is one I prefer to use before I hit the hay.
Last on my list is Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Perfume, now this doesn't smell entirely like rose but it does have notes of rose in it. This is my favourite perfume ever. I've been wearing this for about a year now and it's basically my signature scent. Perfect for Spring/Summer, as it's light sweet and floral. This will have you sniffing your wrists every few minutes, and at £48 for 75ml, you can't resist. I own the mini travel size version but I can guarantee you I'll be picking up the full size bottle ready for Summer. And to top it off, it's housed in a beautifully designed bottle. What more can I say?

Do have any rose-scented products? What do you think of these?
