Valentine's Day may have come and gone, but that doesn't mean we're giving up our love affair with roses. And thankfully, a number of beauty products feature the fragrant floral, so now we never have to. Not only do rose-infused products smell like a glorious bouquet, but they actually contain a number of skincare benefits.
For example, rosewater is a great toner as it is refreshing and purifying; rose hip oil contains fatty acids, which help restore skin, keeping it hydrated and supple; and primrose oil has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe dry, problem skin. Check out some of the rose-based beauty products we've spotted on the beauty counter.Jurlique
