Ain’t Life Rosy?

Roses aren’t just for Valentine’s Day or college football tourneys. Beyond sitting pretty in a vase (or on a float) this formidable flower is used in some of our favorite products to hydrate your skin, brighten your cheeks, soften your lips and more. Meet the beauty essentials powered by this romantic bud.

Frownies® Rose Water Hydrator Spray

Ancient Roman empresses prized rose water for its skin-soothing properties and sweet, lingering scent. Fortunately, Frownies® knows better than to mess with a good thing: the brand made the traditional ingredient the star of its hydrating facial mist. Use this pick-me-up throughout the day to refresh your complexion, set your makeup, or just because.

Made with crushed rose petals, this cult favorite has the consistency of a fine merlot and glides on sheer. Simply dot the nail polish-style brush onto your cheeks for a natural-looking flush no one would ever guess came from a bottle.

Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Petite Cologne Absolue

Imagine: After pulling off a grandiose heist, a beautiful and mysterious jewelry thief leaves behind a single, long-stemmed rose as her calling card.

The convenient tin has a darling apothecary feel and fits nicely into pockets, handbags, and desk drawers.
