A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

Posted by 02.13.12

Roses – symbols of love, adoration and passion – are practically synonymous with Valentine’s Day. But did you know that roses also are endowed with therapeutic properties that make them especially beneficial to the skin and ideal for skincare products. Rose oil, both moisturizing and a free radical fighter, derives from an ages old extraction process that originated in Persia centuries ago. Today, it takes about 2,000 flowers to produce one gram of oil. But price is no object when it comes to beauty and Valentine’s Day. So get your sweetie to check out the list below or treat yourself to a rose infused gift.

Every year an estimated 230,480 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and nearly 40,000 die from it, including my grandmother and two aunts. So I’m delighted to round up some great products whose companies donate a portion of sales to aid cancer research during the month of October – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Let’s start by saying thanks to the grand dame of cosmetics, Evelyn Lauder, for founding The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in 1993. So please put your money where your heart is and make sure to do a weekly self-breast exam and have an annual mammogram. For more information on the subject, please visit www.cancer.gov.

DRY SKIN BE-GONE

OILATUM SHOWER AND BATH OIL – As with many things cheap that I end up liking, this is a product that my husband first found.  He won’t use any sort of moisturizing lotion, but was getting dry skin in the winter.  Our family doctor suggested Oilatum.  He can use it before he gets out of the shower by just rubbing some of the oil in before towelling off.  I use this stuff in the bath with a separate bath gel – it really really softens your skin.  You need to be careful getting out of the bath as it can make your bathtub slippery.  I also use it sometimes when I am in a rush after I get out of the shower.  It doesn’t take anytime to rub in, and there isn’t a “waiting period” that you have with some higher end moisturizers.  It costs about $8, and lasts forever.
FINAL VERDICT – BOB (BEAUTY ON A BUDGET) Whether you are looking for something quick and easy, or something that is inexpensive that is a great moisturizer, Oilatum is a good alternative.
