Oils are one of the basic building blocks in many skincare products. However they are easily lost in the chemical-laden ingredients lists of our favourite cosmetic items. Going back to basics is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Rose is no exception – it has everything you need.

Skincare is the most important part in any beauty routine. If you treat your skin well, it will look its best and you’ll be able to flaunt your stuff with confidence. Equally, if you want to wear makeup, good skincare will leave the best possible canvas to work on. An exfoliated, moisturised face will make sure no foundation sticks and makes your face look cakey.
Basic oils are the original skincare essentials, but they are completely masked in so many products. Coconut oil has made a huge comeback. People are much more aware of how good it is for their skin now. I personally love to use it to remove my makeup. Other people use it as a lip or hair treatment or teeth whitener.
Many other oils and beauty basics are also making a comeback. Coffee grounds as a scrub, argan oil for hair, marula oil for the skin. I think Rose Oil deserves a place up there with the greats – it is an amazing skincare all-rounder. It does everything you need for a skincare basic. Rose could be a game-changer for so many people, if they just knew what it could do for them!
Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Body Cream
I’ve recently felt so caught up in trends. I fill online baskets with outfits I can’t afford and skincare products with long ingredient lists and price tags bigger than a weeks rent. I was so glad when Dr Botanicals sent me a pot of their glorious Moroccan Rose and Shea Butter Body Repairing Cream. It is so luxurious and really shows that you can’t beat the basics.
Dr Botanicals uses a blend of high quality Vegan friendly ingredients to leave the skin supple, hydrated and silky soft. It contains Moroccan Rose Oil, Shea Butter and Apricot Kernel oil.
The cream sinks into the skin quickly and leaves it feeling deeply moisturised and aromatic. I love the way it feels, my skin is never sticky or greasy after using it.
If you want to know why you need to add Rose into your skincare, I’ll outline the reasons now!
Rose for Breakouts and Skin Ailments
Rose has natural antibacterial properties which help fight spot-causing bacteria. If you have pimple-prone skin then a rose based product can help soothe redness and prevent further breakouts. It is an anti-inflammatory and so can also be useful in the calming of rosacea and eczema. Here you have the ultimate skin soother.
Rose for Moisturising and Anti-Ageing
Rose is intensely moisturising and is packed with antioxidants. It is great for dehydrated or aged skin – it helps to firm the skin and give it glow. Being packed full of vitamin C also means it is incredible at fighting ageing free-radicals keeping skin looking beautiful.
Rose for a Healthier mentality
Rose is often used for its aroma-therapeutic qualities, and using it in your skincare is an easy way to benefit. It’s scent can ease stress, promote positivity and uplift your mood. It is the perfect option to calm, relax and cheer you up! Perfect for evening pamper sessions!
Rose is generally an expensive ingredient, as it takes around 60 Roses to make one single drop of essential oil. One drop. So I highly recommend you take advantage of any deals on rose skincare products as and when you find them! Have you tried any products containing rose before? Do you have a holy grail skincare basic like coconut or argan oil?
