It might be cold outside, but with the recent influx of rose-infused beauty products, we’ve got ourselves a veritable rose garden.


Aerin Rose Hand & Body Cream $65, Along with rose notes, this silky formula also has magnolia and peony, resulting in a sophisticated floral scent.


Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Hand Cream $37, Rose and geranium oil provide both the fragrance and soothing properties, plus a dose of Omega 6 softens delicate hand skin.


C.P. Bigelow Rosewater Skin Tonic, $18, Rose extract, witch hazel and chamomile soothe skin, but it also contains a bit of salicylic acid to gently exfoliate.


The Body Shop British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask $28, Rose petals, rosehip oil and aloe vera make up this gel mask that imparts an immediate plumping, toned sensation.


Briogeo Rosarco Blow Dry Perfection & Heat Protectant Crème $24, This silicone-free blend of rosehip, argan and coconut oils protects hair from the potentially damaging effects of heat appliances while also keeping frizz at bay.


Diana Vreeland Perfumes Full Gallop (out in November) $250, Like the woman it was named after, this blend of Turkish rose, iris, amber, musk and pepper is a striking, bold creation.


Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream $40, Two different types of hyaluronic acid (one that works on skin’s surface; the other goes deep) increase moisture on both levels while rose flower oil and rose water nourish and calm skin in this rich cream.


Imaginary Authors Slow Explosions $95, Prefer a scent that doesn’t lead with the blossom? This one mixes rose with saffron and is warmly anchored in a leather base.


Julisis Rose Pearl Hydra Mask, $192, Spring water, vegetable glycerin, fermented mushroom and two kinds of roses help strengthen skin’s moisture barrier in this bouncy clear gel that feels refreshingly cool on skin.


L’Objet Rose Noire Room Spray, $75, Ceylon tea, white pepper and moss blend with exotic roses in this spray, which makes for an adequate substitute for a vase of roses in a pinch.


Molton Brown Rosa Absolute Bath & Shower Gel $30, Black currant adds a light sweetness to this Italian rose oil body wash, while patchouli imparts a subtle sexy element.


Moroccan Oil Fleur de Rose Shower Milk $32, The brand’s famous argon oil adds coconut oil, avocado oil and olive oil to this hybrid milky shower gel.


Mullein & Sparrow Bath Salts crystals, $42, If you dream of bathing in rose petals, this is for you. If, however, you’d rather not clean your bathtub of said rose petals afterward, maybe use their Rose Geranium bar soap instead


MV Rose Hydrating Mist, $42, The lightest wakeup call for a complexion, this softens skin to better absorb moisturizer afterwards.


Shiva Rose Saffron Rose Facial Scrub $48, Just add a few drops of water or essential oil to this powdery mix and spread it over your face and neck. You won’t care about the potential post-rinse-off mess in your sink when you feel how soft your skin is.


Yes to Primrose Oil Coriander Liquid Hand Soap, $4, This liquid soap soothes irritated skin and truly smells just like a fresh-cut batch of roses.


Christophe Robin Instant Volumizing Mist with Rose Water $29, Composed of 96% rose water, this soothes the scalp, which just-colored hair appreciates and adds extra girth to locks, too.
