Trudi's edit

My garden is bursting with summer roses, so it's at this time of the year I become obsessed with anything rose-infused in beauty land. It's the one flower with the most enchanting scent that's also mood-lifting, skin-toning, and so calming. Here's is my go-to rose summer essentials.


Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream Light, $59. I always reach for this day cream once the temperature rises. The rose water, petals and rose hip extract makes it a skin calming treat for my dry and often sensitive complexion.  

Elie Saab Le Parfum Eau de Toilette Rose Couture, from $102. The rose, and peony petals are made even sweeter by orange blossom essential oils. But what makes this scent extra rosy is rose nectar, jasmine and warm vanilla. 

MOR Sugar Rose Fragrant Candle, $30. It is the best way to fill your home with the aroma of rose, and this hand-poured soy wax candle is a blend of exotic rose blooms. Burn time up to 38 hours.

Jurlique Rose Love Balm, $20. This multi-purpose balm is always on my bedside table. Made with olive and safflower oils, chamomile, calendula, and rose gallica - it's the heal-all for dry cuticles and lips.
 
By Terry Baume de Rose for Tree, $48. This season the cult-classic Baume de Rose can be hung from your Christmas tree. I love the pink pearly finish and the way it nourishes lips in seconds. 

Mecca Cosmetica Clutch, $44. I am a sucker for a new beauty bag, and this little gem fits a lip gloss, iPhone and credit card and works perfectly for the party season.

NARS Sarah Moon Collection Mind Game Velvet Lip Glide Set. $70. There isn't one shade in this semi-matte, gloss collection that I would not wear. And the range of colours reminds me of roses in bloom. Limited-edition shades include No. 675, Chez Claude and Plato's and three existing shades Bound, Unspeakable and pictured here Toy.

Nude by Nature Shimmering Sands Loose Eyeshadow in Rose Sand, $29. Sparkle is always on my radar, and for every feature. This loose eye shadow is highly pigmented and leaves a shimmery trail on lids that looks gorgeous.
