Love Roses? You've Got to Try This All-Natural Beauty Brand

I've always loved roses. Not necessarily in the usual sense though, like a bouquet of roses. More like the scent of roses, and the taste of food or drink with rose in it. We actually have a bottle of rose water in our fridge, which I plan to use for some rose-infused cocktails this spring. And over the last couple of weeks, I've been infusing rose into my beauty routine too!

Turns out, if you love rose, Dr. Hauschka Cosmetics is definitely your brand. All of the products you'll see below are packed with rose petals, wild rose hips, and rose petal wax! The best part? The roses are grown naturally and organically in their own garden in Germany. Believe it or not, the roses are still hand-picked from their garden. And all of their cosmetics are NATRUE Certified (which apparently has quite a rigorous certification process). Keep on reading below to learn more about why you're going to love this all-natural brand!

Before I had the chance to try the products, I wondered what they would actually feel and smell like: how would the rose really come across in these products? Well let me tell you, the smell is fantastic. Using the Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner and Rose Day Cream in the morning, my face smells like a lovely rose garden! Not just like a fresh seriously smells like a garden! It's actually such a wonderful scent

The Facial Toner is simply sprayed all over your face, and then lightly patted into the skin. It doesn't feel as tightening as most toners I've tried - definitely more comfortable. And the Rose Day Cream has a really nice, thick creamy formula. You actually need to apply a bit of pressure to really spread the cream across your face, and it really is quite thick, but I loved the feeling. My face has been very dry lately, so the thick cream felt so moisturizing and pampering on my skin. It's probably the rose scent that also makes it feel so pamering: after all, it smells like something you would use at a spa!

Now, I do love skincare, but what I love more than skincare is makeup. And here the really cool part: even Dr. Hauschka's makeup is infused with rose as well! Their Sheer Lipstick has a less intense rose smell, and has just a very very sheer wash of colour. I was expecting more colour to be honest, but I was actually pleasantly surprised how much I liked the look. It's very much a 'your lips but better' colour. It's going to be perfect for summer, when you want to keep your makeup look simple. Here, I'm wearing the shade Rosanna.

If lip gloss is more your thing though, they have an all-natural Lip Gloss as well, although it doesn't have rose. But again, the colour just has enough of a hint of colour to give your lips an enhanced look, without appearing too overly thick and glossy. I've used this gloss a few times now, and it really is very moisturizing on the lips. The shade here is Raspberry, a nice light, baby pink.

I find that good all-natural mascaras are a bit hit-or-miss. It's hard to find one that truly gives me the kind of lash volume that I want. I didn't find that this one gave me crazy volume either, BUT....if you hate mascara that clumps (and really, who doesn't?) then you are going LOVE this mascara! It is literally impossible to get it clumpy. I applied at least 10 layers and had absolutely zero clumping. It was actually pretty amazing - I can't think of another mascara I have that's that good at not clumping. Lashes are perfectly defined, and the formula feels very nourishing, as opposed to crumbly. And guess what? More rose! Dr. Hauschka's Volume Mascara has rose petal wax as one of the ingredients, which is what helps to nourish your lashes.

Happy Styling! xo
