Rose Beauty: Our Favourite Rose Products To Indulge In
Rose skincare and beauty products. Ever wondered why Rose-infused lines just hit differently? We think it’s down to the calming and soothing effects of the sweet floral scent – that far transcends the physical qualities of your regular skincare.
If you are on the fence about using Rose in skin care, know that the majestic rose is rich in antioxidants which help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. You’ll notice that Rose is often used in toners, as it helps to balance the skin’s pH levels while providing enough hydration. Rose is also anti-inflammatory making it an ideal pick for those with sensitive skin.
Let’s not forget that Rose has also been associated with all things beauty and anti-ageing, right since the Ancient Egyptians. Rose-based skincare products are often recommended for those with dry or mature skin, as they help to moisturise and leave skin looking radiant. Rosehip oil, also derived from the rose plant is high in essential fatty acids and rich in Vitamin A. A refreshed look, better skin tone and reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, are amongst some of its other magical healing powers.
And when it comes to Rose as a scent, it goes well beyond just making you smell beautiful. Rose scents relieve stress, fight anxiety, and are perfect to relax both your body and the mind. You’ll often find Rose used in aromatherapy, with essential oils, to regenerate your skin and slowly relax your muscles, any tension and inflammation.
As obsessed with all things Rose? We’ve got just the treat for you! We scoured Singapore’s top beauty stores, both online and otherwise to draw up a list of our favourite rose-infused skincare products. Hydrating, refreshing and most importantly, with the right hint of natural Rose fragrance, here’s a list you really want to save!

Origins Original Skin™ Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay
Now if you are looking to set up a spa-like environment at home, with plenty of rose therapy thrown in, consider the Origins Retexturising Mask with Rose Clay.
This two-in-one mask creates a radiant appearance and gently draws out any dirt and debris while exfoliating to refine the skin’s texture. It is formulated with Mediterranean Rose Clay and Canadian Willow Herb to restore skin clarity and perform deep cleansing action. Jojoba beads exfoliate your skin for a youthful and smoother complexion.
It also visibly minimizes the look of pores in one simple step. Skin is left looking smoother and brighter with a reduction in redness and inflammation. Be cautious though, this mask physically exfoliates, so if your skin does not like the polishing aspect, we’d recommend washing off without scrubbing first.
The Ordinary 100% Org Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
The Ordinary makes no-nonsense, skincare that works. Best of all it’s super affordable so everyone has access to the right actives and ingredients for their skin type. Their popular 100% Org Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil is another winning product to add to your list. This is especially true if you have acne-prone skin and don’t usually use oils on your face. The 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rosehip Seed Oil naturally hydrates skin and balances uneven skin tone, while brightening and promoting radiance. It is made of 100% organic rosehip seed oil that is cold-pressed to retain its potency and hence gentle enough for daily use.
Word of caution, while Rosehip oil is harvested from the seeds of rose bushes, if you are after rose-scented oils, it won’t make the mark. Similarly, the Ordinary oil is unrefined and comes with a natural oily scent, with no rose hues.

If you need to make your hair and scalp smell as good, it’s time to introduce your locks to OUAI’s Rose Hair & Body Oil. The luxuriously nutrient-rich oil for your body and hair is a silicone-free formula that absorbs quickly and restores damage.
