August Favourites Part 1: Rose Skincare

 L-R: Liz Earle Rose & Lavender Cleanse & Polish, Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild arose Beauty Balm, Neal’s Yard Remedies Rose Toner, LUSH Eau Roma Water

This months favourites are split into two posts: skincare & lipsticks. I have been loving rose skincare products and lipsticks this month – so keep checking back for my August Favourites Part 2: Lipstick Loves!

I absolutely adore roses and anything rose inspired or rose scented. I had finished the Liz Earle Chamomile & Orange Flower limited edition Cleanse & Polish recently – for my full review check out my summer cleansing routine here. Because I had finished the chamomile & orange flower I moved onto the absolutely wonderful Liz Earle Rose & Lavender Cleanse & Polish. This is also a limited edition.

This has the award winning Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish creamy cleanser formula with a rose & lavender scent. The scent is beautifully subtle and uplifting, a real joy to use. Great at melting make-up away to reveal fresh, radiant skin, or as a wonderfully indulgent second cleanse. I could not be without this! 

Another cleanser I have been loving this month is the beautiful Wild Rose Beauty Balm cleanser from Neal’s Yard Remedies.


This has a much more concentrated rose scent which I absolutely adore. Feels like a real spa-like treatment in the comfort of your own home. This balm transforms to a soft oil on the skin to gently take-the-day-off and leaves the skin beautifully hydrated, smooth and clean.

After cleansing with one of these rose cleansers I’ve been loving keeping with the rose theme this month by using one of these wonderful toners. 


This is the lovely Rehydrating Rose Toner by Neal’s Yard Remedies. I love to dab some onto cotton pads and gently swipe all over my face. This has a really light rose scent to it and is great to freshen up the skin ready for heavier facial oils and moisturisers.

Last but not least is the great LUSH Eau Roma Water which I have been reaching for on a daily basis this month. 


This has more of a heavy rose scent when compared to the Neal’s Yard Remedies toner. I love the spritzer on this LUSH toner water – great to spritz over to refresh your whole face before or after make-up to set and refresh. I also love to spritz this onto cotton pads and swipe over my face after cleansing to tone and prep the skin for other skin care products.

These are the skincare products I have been using every day in the month of August. August has been all about the rose scented skincare. Love it.

Let me know your thoughts. Have you tried any of these? Any other rose skincare recommendations that I just need to try? I love reading and replying to your comments.
