A Rose By Any Other Name Is Just As Sweet
Whether they be in makeup or in petit four, roses by any other name (or usage) are just as sweet.
The analogy “soft like rose petals” is seriously over-used in beauty but these two products do exactly that. Korres’s Brightening Duo contains a fine-grained exfoliator, that gently buffs your skin using rice grain powder, cherry shell powder, and sugar-citrus extracts. Used in conjunction with the Sleeping Facial, a soufflé of a moisturizer, you wake up with amazing, soft skin. If you want to be truly decadent, you can use ByTerry’s Or de Rose incredibly fragrant body oil, made of 24 karat pink gold. I’ve been rationing my usage of this this like Cipro during an anthrax scare, but even the tiniest bit reveals a warm, lovely, rosy-light glimmer that is a beautiful light-director.
Pair your rosy outlook with Vosges’s pink champagne rose truffles with a rosebud-layered surface. The instructions on their site for enjoying these are almost as intricate as those for Eve Lom’s face wash (lots of sniffing, centering, and introspection).
