Why does rose get such a bad rap? Well, it shouldn't when we're talking about natural skincare and fragrance. A real, beautiful rose scent is absolutely gorgeous, a synthetic one? Not so much. I've compiled my favorite rose products and hope you'll try them out because ahhh, they smell wonderful!
Lurk Perfumes - I recently wrote about Lurk here. After writing the review, I became so obsessed with several of the fragrances that I just had to have 'em. So, I ordered two of the ones that I found myself reaching for most throughout the day, RSW005. This sandalwood/rose scent is so lovely, it's probably the prettiest perfume I've ever smelled. Just to be clear, natural perfumes don't last as long as synthetic ones, so you'll be re-applying often. Honestly, I use Lurk just for myself. I put a bit on the tip of my nose and walk throughout NYC like I'm in an English rose garden. Check out Lurk here. $55
Mun - Mun No. Aknari has been getting a lot of buzz lately and it's all well-deserved as this eye and face serum is both effective and heavenly. Other than the fact that it hydrates perfectly, it smells amazing; a powdery rose that's so modern and pretty. This serum is 100% organic and contains only three ingredients: Prickly Pear Seed, Argan Oil and Rose Essential Oil. To read my full review of Mun, please visit here.

Osmia Organics - No one (other than maybe Laurie from 312 Beauty) was more excited about Osmia's new Linden Rose Hand Cream coming out than I was. I'm always so impressed with how professional, yet completely handmade, all of the products from Osmia are. Linden Rose Hand Cream is what I would define as the perfect consistency. It's of medium thickness, dries quickly and leaves your hands really hydrated without that greasy feel (I know you know what I'm talking about). With pure ingredients like aloe barbadensis leaf juice, shea butter and sweet almond oil, you know you're in good hands (ugh..bad pun). $24
NYL Skincare - NYL's vegan cleanser smells just like a rose. It's so pretty and light, a true pleasure to cleanse with. So pure, this formula contains only organic rosewater, organic vegetable glycerin and organic castile soap. This would be wonderful for super sensitive skin types. The consistency is water-like and it's very gentle. I like to use this in the shower with my Japanese Konjac Sponge. To read my full review of NYL (Know Your Ingredients) visit here. $28
