10 Rose-Inspired Natural Beauty Products For A Day Of Love
The scent of rose calls to mind something special for everyone, whether it's the comfort of a grandmother, the rejuvenating reminder of spring, or the sensuality of a lover, it conjures a strong sense of connection. On a day that often prioritizes romantic love, be sure to set aside a few moments to connect with yourself. Taking five minutes for self-care ritual, treating yourself to a new product, or even simply going the extra step to feel pampered is a great way to show yourself some love. Not all of these rose-inspired products have strong scents, but they're just as indulgent as they are therapeutic—functional beauty at its best.
1. Lano Rose Hand Cream
Formulated with rose oil, Lano's rose hand cream is a delight for the skin and the senses. Vitamin E, shea butter, and cocoa seed butter moisturize intensely while jojoba seed oil, grapeseed oil, and rose flower oil absorb quickly into the skin—striking just the right balance.

2. Herbivore Rose Quartz Illuminating Body Oil
Rose quartz, the gemstone for which this body oil is named, is associated with the heart chakra. With a base of quick-absorbing jojoba oil and emollient coconut oil, it absorbs into the skinwithout making it look too "oiled up." The scent is subtle but noticeable, and so is the shimmer—making it one of those prize products that becomes both an everyday essential and also a favorite for a night out. The rose quartz oil is a limited edition run, so get it while you can!

It's not just a face mask, but 10 full minutes of other-worldly aromatherapeutics.
6. Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil
Using an oil soluble form of vitamin C allows the potent antioxidant to be delivered 50 times better than normal ascorbic acid, which means brighter, more even-toned skin. This 5-ingredient oil is good for dry, normal, or oily skin, with squalane oil as a base that helps keep the skin's barrier in-tact. Damascus rose extract is the cherry on top—it's a treat for the senses and helps melt stress away.
