Rose Scented Beauty Products

Rose Scented Beauty Products - Melvita, Monu, Balance Me, Figs & Rouge, Crabtree & Evelyn, Naked

Rose scented products are so much more appealing to me than say lavender scented ones. I don't what it is but they make the product that carries the scent, seem more much appealing and luxurious. Here's a few rose scented beauty products that I've tried and what I think of them.

Melvita Organic Rose Beauty Mist 50ml (£10.00)
This rose scented product has gotten a lot of love in my 5 Quick Beauty Fixes and My Summer Make Up Bag posts recently and rightly so. Lightly rose scented, it slots in well with my skincare routine and as a makeup refresher.

Monu Professional Skincare Moisture Rich Collagen Cream* (£22.50)
Remember this little beauty from my bedside essentials post? Months on and it's still a firm favourite of mine. I  like using this as a kind of face mask when my dry skin needs some moisturise and some TLC. It doesn't make my face feel uber greasy and it sinks in fairly easily. As the season is changing I can see me using this a lot more. 

Balance Me Rose Otto Body Lotion (£6.00)
I spotted a little gift set in the Debenhams sale for half price, which contained this hand cream along with the accompanying shower gel and couldn't resist picking it up. Described as an "ultra smoothing and richly hydrating" body lotion, it sinks into the skin beautifully and fairly quickly. However I'd say it's more of a lighter moisturiser for the occasional use during the warmer months, rather than a go to product during winter.

After a cheeky little Latest In Beauty purchase last week, this hand cream was included with my order as a freebie. I've tried it a few times since and unfortunately I'm not a fan of it as it takes a while to sink in just like the Crabtree and Evelyn Gardeners Hand Therapy Cream. 

Figs & Rouge Coco Rose Lip Balm 12.5ml (£4.95)
Many months ago I got this in a beauty box. It's sat at the draw unused as it's not something I tend to reach for very often. It's touted as a ultra-hydrating 100% natural lip balm. I love the fact that it's free of petroleum, parabens and synthetics but it's more of a gritty lip balm make shift lip scrub than your bog standard lip balm. 

With 97% of the ingredients being natural, this body wash is hard not to love. Despite the presence of SLS, it foams up as well as any other shower gel and it doesn't make my skin feel dry after using it. The reviews of this body wash speak for themselves really.

Forever Repurchased Edition #1

Five Forever Repurchased Items

Despite being a product junky, there's some staple products that I always go back to time and time again. There are just some products out there that just seem to work and that just can't be replaced. Here are a few items which I have repurchased time and time again...

It should come as no surprise that this it included here. I've spoken for my love for it across my blog as well as in guest posts. I have tried numerous similar make up removers but nothing compares to this one. It's cheap as chips and always gets rid of my eye make up without any difficulty including waterproof mascara. {I've mentioned this in my top 5 skincare buys}

I'm very picky when it comes to fragrances. I don't like perfumes which are too musky nor too sweet. This perfume is the perfect combination of the two. Everyone who knows me knows how much I love this fragrance. It's also one of those fail proof gifts that I receive regularly from distant relatives. {I've mentioned  this in my perfume collection & my 2011 favourites}

Some may say this is just a fancy water spray but I disagree, it's so much more than that. This aerosol water spray is the perfect solution for cooling, toning, relieving the skin and is basically a girls best friend in a can. One can never have too many cans of this. In my bathroom cabinet, my handbag, the car, any possible place to have one, I've probably got a can stashed there. {I've mentioned this in my summer essentials; my skincare routine}

You're probably thinking £13 for a body butter? You're right I don't spend £13 on body butters as I tend to wait for sale periods where I can nab a few of them for that price. I'm not too fussy on what scent I use, as I just tend to opt for whatever is on offer. The body butters are smooth, moisturising and non-sticky. {I've mentioned this in my body care routine; my winter saviours; top 5 body moisturisers}

Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl | £5.00 
I've gone through around three of these so far and I just can't get enough. If you're a fan of Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner, then you'll love this as it's the drugstore equivalent. It glides on like a dream, gives off the most intensive black and it's long lasting. What else do you need from a kohl pencil? {I've mentioned this in my everyday make upwhat's in my travel make up bag & my 2012 favourites}
