A simple search for the word "rose" on Sephora's website churns out 1,091 results, which is a lot for a flower that was once most commonly associated with powdery grandma fragrances. Some of these products, naturally, pertain to the names of blushes and lipsticks, but hundreds more refer to skin-care items containing various forms of the flower, touted for its soothing, anti-inflammatory properties.
Biossance's Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil is one of those products and, unlike many of its rivals, it's been sold out for nearly two weeks on Sephora's website. In fact, according to the brand, the product's sales have tripled in the last year alone. The lightweight oil features Damascus rose extract, along with sustainably-produced squalane and vitamin C. And while most facial oils get a bad rap for being greasy, that's not the case with this formula. Its consistency is ridiculously thin; we might even venture to say that it's the lightest and fastest-absorbing oil we've tried to-date.

If you're looking for a moisturizer that will do the job and sit pretty on a vanity, this is it. There are actual rose petals floating around in the vitamin C- and rose oil-infused blend.

This facial oil may not contain squalane or rose extract, but it is loaded with some other buzzy skin-care ingredients like the antioxidant lycopene as well as oat kernel extract for soothing inflamed skin. The main hydrator in the formula though, is good ol' rosehip oil, which is touted for its scar-fading capabilities.

If you simply cannot get your hands on a bottle of Biossance's facial oil, might we direct you to the brand's 100% Squalane Oil instead? Housed in a convenient pump bottle, the oil can be used from head to toe. We especially like slathering it on our limbs and face then running the excess through the mid-lengths and ends of our hair.

Best for drier skin types, this formula contains rose extract, rosehip oil, evening primrose, and rose geranium. It also contains a host of heavy-duty oils like sweet almond, apricot kernel, and grapeseed oil. If your parched skin is barely functioning in the cold weather, this is your best bet.
