John Master’s Organics Rose Foaming Face Wash

What better way to cleanse skin than to treat it with organic care, followed by a light and fresh, lingering rose fragrance? This mild cleanser is gentle on dry and sensitive skin but still strong enough to remove eye makeup. The power ingredients include pure organic essential rose oil (to improve blood circulation… aka you’ll have a nice, rosy glow afterwards) and plantain leaf to relieve sensitivity and inflammation.

ACURE Organics Facial Toner

This toner is certified organic and combines Organic Rose with red tea and other organic ingredients to keep skin balanced. After using it in the morning, you’ll notice that even hours later, skin is shine-free and evenly toned. We recommend using this before applying moisturizer, to help skin lock in moisture even longer.

Since this toner is alcohol-free, there’s no pungent smell that often comes with toners and astringents, and no tingling feeling - just organic, hydrating goodness.

Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream

This rose-infused day cream is super rich - don’t be alarmed by how thick the texture is, because it is perfect for winter. It works great to bring dry skin back to life and keep moisture locked in. The wholly natural plant ingredients work to regenerate the epidermis so that your skin will be hydrated and give you a naturally fresh-faced look.

Fun fact: this product is backed with 30 roses worth of rose petal extract goodness. So good that the one and only Jennifer Lopez claims it as one of her go-tos for hydrating skin.

Renée Rouleau Pro Remedy Oil

This multi-tasking and travel-friendly oil is easily a go-to for all sorts of skin (and life) conditions, such as dryness caused by airplane travel, skin irritations caused by chemical peels/treatments, conditions like eczema, sunburn, and even dryness or marks as a result of pregnancy.

Rosehip oil is just one of the 12 powerful (and carefully selected) natural oils in this formula - it’s joined by sweet almond, cranberry, pomegranate seed, and passion fruit seed oils, to name a few. Combined, these blended oils work to repair the barrier of skin that retains moisture and fights off irritants.

Giovanni Organic Body Care Hot Chocolate Sugar Scrub

One whiff of this chocolate body scrub and you’ll want to use it every day. The smell is intoxicating-ly yummy - seriously, it's just like hot chocolate! The combination of soft sugar grains and real, crushed cocoa beans are natural ingredients to gently exfoliate and refresh skin. The PureOrganic Technology indicated on the product is signature for the Giovanni brand - meaning that the formula consists of organic ingredients (and 100% vegan) sans parabens.

Clairvoyant Beauty Coffee and Chocolate Bath Soak

If you’re itching to soak up more of that chocolatey scent, and your skin is itching for some R&R - you’ll love this richly aromatic bath soak. This is dessert + bath time all in one. Caffeine from the coffee stimulates circulation, and chocolate naturally delivers antioxidants to the skin. Plus, sea salt helps to soothe achy limbs.

KORA Organics Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil

Organic rosehip oil buddies up with noni extract, sea buckthorn, and pomegranate oil in this delicate but nourishing body treatment. Together, they provide skin with antioxidants and fatty acids needed for dry skin to restore its lost moisture.

Plus: at 3 oz., it’s the perfect size to drop in your bag during travel to refresh skin on-the-go.

Paul & Joe Beauté Holiday Collection Treatment Balm - Rose Bouquet

It applies as a balm but feels like an oil - this luxurious balm is perfectly packed for on-the-go application of jojoba oil, honey, and rose extract to moisturize any area that needs some extra TLC (i.e: cracked heels, elbows, knees, dry hands… and even split ends in your hair).

100% Pure Cocoa Bronzer

Feel great about what you’re putting on your skin. You might not believe just looking at this bronzer what it is actually made of… this 100% natural addition to your makeup bag contains pigments of real cocoa, coffee, berries, and tomato!

It can be used on both face and body - sweep with a kabuki brush on your cheekbones, top of forehead, and bridge of your nose for a sunkissed, contoured look, or on areas of the body that could use a little more glow.

While the bronzer may look deeply pigmented and dark in color, it is easily layered on as light or dark as you need.

BOSS MA VIE pour Femme

Could there be a more perfect fragrance for our Valentine’s Day beauty theme? The fragrance is inspired by the independent spirit of a woman as she pauses to indulge in the simple moments in life. The essence of femininity in this fragrance comes thanks to pink floral bouquet (freesia and jasmine petals) and delicate rose bud.

$67.00 (50 ml) or $80.00 (75 ml) at Hugo Boss
