Elegance, romance, gift, classic and luxury. Those words come to mind when I think of Roses. My husband knows I'm a sucker for roses, so occasionally he would surprise me with a bunch that I would work desperately to keep alive. Heartbroken each time they'd decide after a week or so, I was not the caretaker they wished to have, sparing my feelings by not inciting I was a lousy one.
I would not give up on my green thumb though. In fact, I managed to convince my husband that having a few rose plants in our garden would be a more economical way for me to get the most out of these complicated but beautiful flowers. So now we patiently wait for spring, to see if they will come alive once this winter period blows over.
Other than to decorate my front yard with dreamy colors of red, white, pink and others and to smell the sweet aroma of fresh roses as you walk up to my front door, the other reason I eagerly anticipate the spring and summer, is so I can have the benefit of incorporating the flowers in my skincare ideas.
Speaking of skincare, did you know that for centuries, roses have been used in various health and skincare applications? Have you ever considered the benefits of these gorgeous flowers to the body? Well, I will break it down briefly for you, so you can also understand why I was so inspired to develop our Rose Collection line of products.
Rose in skincare, is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and astringent properties which helps fight against acne It has a variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. When used in oil form, it works well at relieving dry skin. Our Sweet Rose and Vitamin E whipped body butter and our Rose & Clay soap includes rose-infused oil to help moisturize and soothe dry, itchy skin.
When infused or distilled in water, in the form of what we call Rosewater, it can help with pH balance of the skin and control oiliness. Rosewater with it's anti-inflammatory properties if beneficial for the treatment of scars, cuts and wounds. It can help reduce redness associated with skin conditions such as rosacea and dermatitis.
For this collection, rose has been included one way or another to highlight it's benefits and beauty. Take a look at the products that form Maly's Rose Collection.
Vanilla + Rose Lotion Bar
Our Vanilla + Rose Lotion Bars are nicely decorated with dried roses. They are thoughtfully created with limited packaging in mind. They are perfect for keeping in your purse for use on those troubled spots, such as knees, heels and elbows. Also, if you use a lot of drying hand sanitizers and soaps. then just roll the lotion bar in your hand and feel it gently melt into your skin as you apply it.
For me, it is addictive to the smell. I can often be found just holding mine up to my nose and taking a whiff of the spicy aroma of vanilla, mixed with the floral scent of dried roses and the rose bouquet fragrance, as well as the natural cocoa butter that has been incorporated in this formulation. Can you tell this is one of my favorite products?
Sweet Rose Bath Bomb
These foamy, fizzy bath treats are beautiful, and smells so good. They are a light pink color (shades may vary) with a heart gem that gives them such an elegant look. They are scented in one of my favorite fragrance combination- Rose Jam and Rose Bouquet. So, it is a warm floral, yet fruity scent and very delightful. As the Sweet Rose bath bomb floats around the tub, it will release the rosy fragrance that fills your bathroom, and color your water a lovely shade of rose pink.
But even more noteworthy, our Sweet Rose bath bomb is made with ingredients that make for a soothing bath experience. Your bath water will feel luxurious, and your skin will feel soft, and nourished at the end of your soak. Thinking about trying it? Click here.
Rose & Clay Soap
One of my favorite things to make in cosmetics is soap. There are different techniques to making soap but the cold process method is by far my favorite. It allows me to formulate my own recipe and I can be as creative as I want with design. In addition, cold process soaps, once properly cured, are very nourishing and moisturizing to the skin, if the right ingredients are used. I am very particular about my proportion of ingredients to achieve a solid, yet hydrating soap each time that offers a good balance of cleansing without drying out the skin. I have super dry skin, so I know the importance of using products that are rich in moisturizing content.
Our Rose & Clay soap uses my favorite recipe and includes skin-loving ingredients such as Cocoa and Shea butters, luxurious oils, rose-infused oil and silk amino acids. Silk offers a soft, luxurious, silky feel to the soap. It is known to draw moisture to the skin, so it is perfect if you are plagued with dryness, especially in the harsh winter months. It includes French Pink Clay which is known to detoxify, and deeply cleanse the skin thereby removing dead skin cells and overtime reveal a more refreshed appearance. We've also included Activated Charcoal which is an exfoliant and attracts impurities with somewhat of a magnet effect. The end result is a smooth, even-toned and radiant skin.
This soap is scented in Rose bouquet and Vanilla. However, the vanilla notes are more pronounced. It is topped with pink Himalayan salt for interest, but also has its share of skin benefits. It is an exfoliant, detoxifies the skin and makes for a soothing, relaxing bath when used in larger proportions, amongst other things. Get it here.
Sweet Rose & Vitamin E Whipped Body Butter
For as long as I can remember, I have been a big fan of whipped body butter. However, I have always been very cautious when buying it as due to the high content of butters and oils, some tend to be quite greasy. I know a lot of people shy away from them for this same reason. But it doesn't have to be this way, and I learned that by choosing the right combination of butters and oils at the right percentages, one can achieve a decent body butter. On the contrary, if you are looking for a better than decent body butter, then you are at the right place.
Maly's whipped body butters are specially formulated to melt into the skin upon contact, offer a rich, luxurious, silky feel and most importantly, nourishes and moisturizes the skin. Our non-greasy formula makes our body butters suitable for all skin types.
But, what is the big deal about the Sweet Rose and Vitamin E whipped body butter?
Well, to commence, it consists of rose-infused oil. A rare treasure you are not likely to readily find at the regular cosmetics shop or supermarket. In addition, luxurious oils and butters are incorporated in the mixture such as Babassu oil and Mango butter. Babassu oil is similar to coconut oil, however, it is softer and absorbs faster upon contact with the skin. It is very moisturizing and does not clog pores so very useful for acne prone skin. Check out my previous blog post for more details on Babassu oil and Mango butter to learn more about our other whipped body butters here.
Maly's Sweet Rose whipped body butter is also infused with vitamin E, a well known staple in skincare products. It is predominantly known for its anti-oxidant and skin restorative properties.
The body butter is scented in our special and new favorite Rose Jam fragrance, and to make it more interesting, we've added a small amount of eco-glitter because, why not?! Get yours here.
Let's switch over to home decor.
In addition to the bath and body products in this Rose Collection, we want to help you set the ambience for a relaxing experience by adding our Sweet Roses wax melt, paired with a warmer and we even throw in a tealight candle. So all you really need is a lighter or matches and you are set for some at home spa time.
