Sweet Roses: 1000 Roses by Andalou Naturals Body Lotion and Body Wash

What can I say with the humidity that suddenly struck the Bay Area the last week I did not want my usual after shower body oil. Instead I reached for the exquisitely scented Andalou Natural's 1000 Roses Body Lotion. I have been meaning to write about this gorgeously scented body care line for awhile because and I stand firmly by this, it is one of the best rose scented body products out there on the market in affordability and scent.

1000 Roses is on the sweeter side, which may be its one major caveat for some, on the other hand to me 1000 Roses is gorgeous take on a rose water scent. But imagine a rose water scent that hints at greenness, ripe sweet apricots, and just the tiniest bit of earthy violet to keep it a little bit grounded. I love it and in the humidity it wonderfully cooling and refreshing. At night it feels especially luxurious and feels a bit dreamy when getting ready for bed. The formula of the body lotion is wonderfully non-greasy and sinks into the skin quickly leaving you feeling moisturized and refreshed. The body wash is just as delightfully aromatic and moisturizing and makes the bathing experience far more lovely. Currently I am tempted to try and get my hands on the Body Cream of 1000 Roses but if I do I am saving that for winter. Either way if you are a rose lover I highly recommend the 1000 Roses body care line by Andalou Naturals. The line features a true rose scent that is far more luxurious than it has any right to be.

Try if you like LUSH's Rose Jam line and Diptyque's Rich Creme Riche.

I can't say that I have. Curious about it now, but will have to save it for the summer, which I can see it being very refreshing in.
