I’m so excited to kick off the holiday season with my first gift guide! These are some of my favorite posts to read each year, and I’m thrilled to announce that I have some great guides planned to go live over the next few weeks. I’ve tried to make these a little more specific and unique than your average recommendations, and I hope you guys are able to find them helpful while doing your Christmas shopping. To start the season off, I’ve put together a guide for all of the rose lovers in your lives, full of things that look, smell, and are infused with the floral essence of this beloved flower.
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
A cult favorite among beauty bloggers, the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist* is a hydrating facial spray that offers a calming affect to troubled, dehydrated skin. This is a fantastic face mist for all year round, and is especially refreshing during the summer when chilled in the fridge (my personal favorite way to use it). The formula is light and soaks into the skin quickly, and it’s perfectly suitable for all skin types.
Bath & Body Works Black Tea Rose Candle
For a fresh floral scent that has a little depth to it, I highly suggest the Black Tea Rose Candle from Bath & Body Works. This candle has a gorgeous scent to it that actually smells like real flowers (none of that “grandma scent” that most rose fragrances tend to have). Along with the rose, there’s an underlying masculine scent that helps give the candle some layers, so it’s not just a flat floral candle.
Lush Rose Jam Bubbleroon
For the bath junkies in your life, you’ll definitely be the hero if you get them a Rose Jam Bubbleroon from Lush. These little bath bars are deliciously floral and sweet, almost like rose candy. The amount of bubbles they create is insane, so they’re perfect for the person who loves to luxuriate in a warm bubble bath after a long day. Also, these bubbleroons are filled with with hydrating oils and ingredients for the perfect spa experience.
Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
Probably one of my favorite items on this list, the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser is a must for any skincare fanatic. This cleanser does it all – melts away makeup, cleans the skin, nourishes and hydrates…the works! It’s gentle enough to work for every skin type, and it’s light rose scent will have floral lovers going absolutely crazy. When you shop through my link, you get 20% off your first purchase + free shipping on $30, so it’s the perfect time to do some holiday shopping!
Fresh Rose Face Mask
An indulgent treat for any rose lover is definitely the Fresh Rose Face Mask*. This gel-like mask is infused with actual rose petals, as well as algae and rosewater. It tones and hydrates, and is a great option for every skin type so you don’t have to worry about it not working for the person you’re buying it for.
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner
Another Fresh item that makes a fantastic gift is the Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner*. Besides just being gorgeous to look at (how beautiful is that packaging???), this rose petal-infused toner is such a wonderful treat for the skin. It tones and cleanses without being too harsh or stripping the skin of necessary oils, and actually imparts some hydration which is quite nice for dry, dehydrated complexions.
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush
For fans of rose gold makeup, the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush is a great option for a shimmery eye. It’s an easy to apply eyeshadow that can be used for several looks, and would be a great little stocking stuffer to surprise your friend or loved one.
Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes in Ample Amber
Another great rose gold eyeshadow option is the Ample Amber Chubby Stick* from Clinique. This is softer, more “everyday” type of shadow, so it’d be great for someone who likes their makeup a little more minimalistic. Also, these shadows are super easy to apply. You don’t even need a brush, you can simply use your fingers to blend out the shadow on your eyes, so this would also work great for someone a little less experienced with makeup or someone who doesn’t like to spend a ton of time creating their look.
Artifact Egyptian Honey Rose Masque
For true skincare connoisseur’s, I highly suggest the Egyptian Honey Rose Masque from Artifact. This is probably the most luxurious item on today’s list, and it’s a decadent treat your skin will forever thank you for. If you have someone on your holiday shopping list that often complains of sensitive skin or a dull complexion, get them this mask. It’s calming effects are transformative for the skin, and it’s a fantastic treatment for the cold winter months.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose
A classic cult rose favorite that everybody should own is the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose. This product combines the best parts of a balm and a lipstick, creating a tinted lip treatment that hydrates and soothes the lips while offering a light wash of color (for this treatment, a beautiful rosy pink shade). This makes a great gift for this time of year because it helps protect the lip from becoming dehydrated and chapped.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Rosy Future
The last little beauty bit on my gift guide for rose lovers is a beautiful rose gold lip gloss that won’t destroy your wallet. Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Rosy Future is not only a budget-friendly gift idea, it’s also a gorgeous gloss that has become a staple to my makeup collection. It’s shimmery and provides a light wash of rose gold color, feels smooth and glossy on the lips without getting tacky, and can be worn alone or over a lipstick to create several different looks. If you’re needing an additional gift or a cute little stocking stuffer, this lip gloss would make the perfect treat.
