La Vie en rose.
Things are looking rosy...
Fresh cut roses from the garden, hand lotion, soothing facial products, rose tea from Amsterdam... ahh, La Vie en rose! From the color and scent to the taste, it entices the senses.
To say we are fond of practically ALL things rosy is an understatement, which is why we couldn't help but buy everything rosy off the shelves in the small 'beauty' section of Trader Joe's during a routine grocery run.
If you're like us and enjoy giving your skin a little extra love after removing your makeup at the end of the day, we have a feeling you'll take a liking to these four lovely and affordable treasures we found at Trader Joes!
#1 Trader Joe's Rose Facial Oil
It's SUCH a universal oil! This 1 FL OZ bottle was $5.99. After cleansing your face or body, dispense about 2 pumps into your hands, rub together and massage into your skin. It acts as such a great moisturizer for not only your skin, but for your hair. Dispense an even smaller amount into the palm of your hand and rub together, then run your fingers through the ends of your hair to add a little shine and moisture. Use what's leftover on your hands to tame those flyaways too! Oh, and did we mention this rose oil does wonders for your cuticles?
#2 Rose Gel Mask and #3 Trader Joe's Rose Water Facial Toner
We love how fresh our faces feel after using this restoring rose gel face mask from Trader Joe's. Sadly they aren't currently carrying it, as it was included in a face mast trio set, but we had to throw it in because it is a fabulous 'oldie but goodie.' The rose water facial toner was the next best thing we found to the mask. A couple spritzes of the $3.99 toner will have you feeling all sorts of soothed and calm as you head off to bed. Side note: we especially love and appreciate that it was not tested on animals!
#4 Trader Joe's Rose Oil Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream
Ladies, we all know a good hand cream is a MUST have in our purse... and this is by far one of our favorites! It is just the right consistency, not too thick but not runny and definitely not oily. For $4.99 and no animal testing and THE. BEST. AROMA. we're sold.
Lotion, toner, oil. We love these products so very much and if you snag them for yourself, you will come out of your in-home 'facial,' smelling like, well... you know.
In any case... stop, smell, raise a glass and enjoy the roses!
