Of all the flowers in the world, perhaps none possess the romance, the poetry or the power of the rose. Throughout time, the iconic bloom has been used in beauty rituals (Cleopatra was said to have bathed in rose water). Roses have often been proffered as a symbol of love and used in elixirs believed to promote good health (Michelangelo supposedly took his tea with rose water). This fall, roses are a popular ingredient in skincare everywhere. Here is the best of the best, three rose products that you simply must try…
A romantic getaway in a bottle, this is not your grandmother’s rose water. Gurunanda offers 100% pure and organic rosewater that will help you refresh, hydrate and moisturize, from their farm to you. Wonderful for all skin types, you can use their rose water to cleanse your face, smooth wrinkles, reduce redness and irritation, help heal scars and set make up. Keep it chilled in the fridge for a cool spritz on your skin to tone and refresh! Sourced from “The Valley of the Roses” in the Bulgarian hillsides, this product is pesticide free with no chemicals or preservatives, just a sweet floral aroma that is great for your skin. Available at www.amazon.com.
ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND NATURAL BEAUTY
Active ingredients from the world’s finest rose gardens and other essential plant extracts provide a soothing burst of hydration and stimulate the collagen-producing fibers that help skin cells retain more moisture.

Exclusive Black Forest rose stem cells counteract collagen breakdown. Jojoba and macadamia nut oils encourage a firmer complexion, giving it new vitality.

FRESH ROSE FACE MASK
Fresh Rose Face Mask is a fabulous, toning gel mask that drenches dull, tired skin with hydration for a healthy-looking complexion. This unique cooling mask is infused with real rose petals (an average of two-and-a-half roses per jar) to restore radiance and suppleness to all skin types. The refreshing formula targets dry areas with porphyridium cruentum, a “smart” algae that delivers optimum moisture where the skin needs it most. Cucumber extract and aloe vera gel help soothe the skin and have an immediate cooling and calming effect, while antioxidant-rich green tea helps to brighten and protect. Gentle enough to use every day, this powerful mask is perfect for all skin types. Available at Sephora and www.Amazon.com.
