Current "ROSE" Skincare Routine

I have been on a green beauty skincare routine for a while now and have just realised that everything about my routine is ROSE ­čî╣related. I love when skincare products are made with roses because they are known for their brightening and anti-ageing effects which are what we all want really so today I want to share my ROSE related skincare regime with you all, and if you love roses as much as I do then keep on reading.


(my garden rose is blooming, love it)

I'm sure most of you have noticed that I have been posting less makeup but more of natural/organic skincare products both on my blog and Instagram and that friends is because, I have realised that when it comes to beauty regime, skincare is far more important than makeup especially green beauty skincare products because they are so gentle, so good for our skin, and with continuous use, our skin gets better, brighter and healthier so that we don't even need to wear tons of makeup. I don't know about you but for me, wearing less makeup feels so much more comfortable, and my skin is now able to breathe which is something I'm very happy about! So if you feel the same way as I do, I think you will love this routine that I'm about to show you, so to start...

I cleanse my skin with Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser which is the most gentle cleanser I have ever tried. It doesn't sting my eyes, it smells good, and I just love that it makes my skin smooth and so clean afterwards. It is a foam based cleanser which isn't something I prefer but honestly, it doesn't foam up like your normal gel cleansers. I barely see foams so it doesn't dry out the skin but still manages to clean it properly. If you have oily skin you would love this but I have normal to dry skin and I still love it so go get a sample, test it out because I think all skin types can benefit a little from this ROSEHIP cleanser. There are only 5 ingredients in it and they are all natural, no nasties whatsoever so it is what I would say an ideal cleanser for green beauty lovers this time of the year. 


(ingredients) 


(not much foam as you can see)

And after cleansing, you want to get that deep layer of your skin moisturised so a good Hyaluronic Acid serum is a must in my opinion, now this Hydrate Facial Serum by Jordan Samuel isn't rose related but I just want to recommend a good Hyaluronic Serum if you are looking for one. I have tried many before including the popular Ordinary Hyaluronic 2% but quite frankly they all feel drying on my skin. I just can't bear that "can't-move-my-face" feeling. Now this one isn't as drying (the secret is to apply this while your face is still damp from your toner so that your skin doesn't feel dry at all), and I love that it is made with all natural ingredients and is safe to use around the eyes to give a rather fresh look to my tired eyes.



After Hyaluronic is done, I use 2 drops of Kathy's Rosehip Facial Serum and 2 drops T.O.S.e Apothecary Wild Rose Serum mixed together for that bright, plumped and youthful complexion. Both of these are handmade with all natural and organic ingredients, and they absorb instantly on the skin, they feel nice, smell nice, and do the job. I love them so if you are looking for a clean ROSE serum look no further! I use these in the morning. 



For evening, I go for something a little more anti-ageing, and for that, I use Jordan Samuel's ├ëtole with Retinol Treatment Oil. This serum not only has Rosehip Oil in it but also has a 0.2% pure retinol that is supposed to target all signs of ageing for your skin. I have been using this for the past 3 weeks and I'm very impressed with it. It is "thicker" than the 2 rose serums I just mentioned but it absorbs very nicely into the skin, no greasy residue and I love that it has no scent so even if you have sensitive skin it will not irritate. 




I highly recommend if you are on your early 30's like me because the 0.2% retinol is just the right amount, no irritation, no peeling, very comfortable on the skin. Sunday Riley Luna is also a great option if you just start with retinol but honestly, 0.1% really isn't that much for a visible effect plus I don't like that Luna has dye in it so go with this one, and when you are towards your late 30's or early 40's you can start thinking about using something like Skinceuticals 1% retinol

And to seal everything in, I use Dr.Hauschka Rose Day Cream which, by the way, is the best face cream I have ever tried. It is 100% natural and a lot of Hollywood celebrities like my beloved Jennifer Aniston swear by it, and I can see why because it is gentle, very nourishing so if you have dry skin you'd love it. It has a pretty potent Rose scent but don't worry it isn't synthetic, it's pure essential oil, and it does disappear once it's on. I use this both morning and night as the last step of my skincare routine. 


I used to use whatever deodorant that smells good but if you think about it, the pores are always open under your arms when you sweat so by putting on deodorant that contains chemicals and nasties would only do harm to your body so I recommend using an all natural deodorant for not only smelling good but also much safer for the skin. I have been really enjoying the M├üDARA Herbal Deodorant, and the best of all? It has ROSE water in it. It smells so lovely and natural, I mean it's not the fastest drying deodorant in the market but at least my skin wouldn't "suffer". It has alcohol but that's just for the drying purpose, as long as you don't put alcohol on your face, you wouldn't really notice any "ageing" under your arms, let's be real! 



If you can't tell already I love ROSEs, and I love them more when they are infused in my skincare products so if you love roses too, I highly recommend checking out these products because they do work and most importantly they are all natural. ­čî╣
