A little secret that nobody knows is that one of the main reasons I fell involve with Leeds as a city is because of Rose & Co…
I remember my first time inside the beautiful Rose & Co boutique. Walking through the door, I already knew it was too late, I had fallen involve. The rooms were filled like treasure troves; handmade moisturising bath bombs, lip balms that made your lips feel like marshmallows and lip tints the colour of rose buds. My trips back to Rose & Co always concluded with a bus journey home, laden with pretty pink paper bags filled with sweet smelling treats.
Last week I had an old friend come down to stay with me from Leeds. She was also a secret Rose & Co shopper and with her she brought a little pink bag filled with my favourites. I am now, once again under the spell.
Recently I tried some gorgeous products from the new Rose and Patchouli bath and body range from Rose & Co. First on my list was the body polish. The list of ingredients included beeswax, vitamin E, sugar and salt whisked in to sunflower oil and cocoa butter. After using the body scrub my skin felt really rejuvenated and luminously fresh.
Next on my list was the Rose and Patchouli Body Butter. I was really looking forward to this. In the winter my skin always seems to be lacking moisture and although I work hard to protect my face, my body always gets forgotten. Unscrewing the tin lid I noticed the smell was delicate and inviting. The butter was deliciously soft and smooth. It was easily massaged in to my skin and left a very pretty aroma of natural plant oils. My skin is now succulently hydrated and nourished. I am ready for you Jack Frost!
The new Rose and Patchouli collection by Rose & Co come in delightfully decorated boxes and jars. The beautiful packaging is inspired by vintage silk kimonos and make a great present this Christmas.
