Rose Round-up


To me, a rose is a timeless flower that encompasses eternal beauty. I've always loved roses of any colour and description, so receiving them is something I generally encourage! It's only recently I've become more aware of the benefits that rose has on my skin.

The Care Oil
Oil is great for all skin types - ignore the myth that oily skin should avoid it - especially one as beautifully nourishing as Darphin's Rose Aromatic Care Oil. The oil instantly refreshes and awakens a tired looking complexion, while re-balancing hydration levels and restoring natural radiance. Darphin's skin-quenching concentrate blends pure Rose and Bay Saint Thomas Essential Oils with Rose Hip and Evening Primrose Oils in an exquisitely fragrant, luxurious formula and a really indulgent treat to apply each night.

The Treatment
This is the perfect time of year for a little bit of spa action. Combine a relaxing treatment with luxurious roses for the ultimate indulgence. Danesfield House Hotel and Spa in Marlow on Thames is launching a brand new luxury Rose Infinity Facial. The ground breaking Rose Infinity Collection uses Nobel Prize winning research that works at a cellular level to repair ageing DNA, radically increase moisture levels and stimulate collagen production. Wrinkles and lines are plumped out for visibly smoother, younger looking skin. A gentle, natural enzyme peel works to re-surface and illuminate while enabling the products to penetrate deeper into the skin. At the same time the tailored anti-ageing massage helps to stimulate circulation and diminish puffiness. The Rose Infinity facial harnesses the most advanced natural ingredients with cutting edge technology to reveal younger looking skin and a radiant complexion.

The facial launches on Friday 11 October 2013 and on the day of the launch the Spa at Danesfield House is offering a 45 minute hands on Rose Infinity Taster Facial for £50, which includes a £50 discount off any 2 Aromatherapy Associates products bought on the day. Amazing.

Rose Infinity Facial | Danesfield House | £50 for 45 mins on launch date, £105 for 85 mins thereafter.



Hands give away your age more than any other part of the body. Take extra special care of them during the harsh winter months with Jurlique Rose Hand Cream. Beautifully scented and infused with rose extract, its luxurious formula makes hands velvety soft and supple. I actually have a hand cream in each of my handbags and my desk at work and my bedside table. Seriously.

The Scent
No rose bouquet to scent your room at all times? Jo Malone's Red Roses candle is literally the next best thing. Such a beautiful smell with a burning time of 45 hours - it definitely lasts longer than the fresh cut real deal.
