Indulge yourself with these romantic rose-inspired treats

When this sensational lace lingerie set arrived in our office the same day as a huge bunch of pink roses and Antipodes’ lush Joyful hand treatment, it got us thinking (after all, three’s a trend!): why save romantic notions for just February 14? Here are a few of our favourite rose- and romance-inspired pink indulgences right now. Because you’re worth it!

Clockwise (from top left):


This limited edition, intense version of Jurlique’s divine (and very popular) Rosewater Hydrating Mist will hit counters on June 15, and is a special collaboration to support AIME, an amazing program that supports the education of indigenous Australians. Each bottle contains precious rose extract and potent botanicals to hydrate and balance your skin, leaving it softer and deeply hydrated.

These floral motif premium quality emery boards are as pretty as they are practical. They’re designed with padding to contour around your nails while filing and have two different surfaces for fine and medium filing. We love that they come with a practical black clip case, meaning no snags inside your favourite bag pocket either.

This gorgeous lingerie set is proof that Bonds aren’t always all about the practical underwear we all know and love. Part of a hot new neon lingerie collection set to hit stores this June (snap up every colour fast when they do – they’re sure to sell out), these are designed to be as comfy as any other Bonds smalls!

Shop → Bonds Bright Pink Lacie Galloon Triangle Crop and skimpy, $29.95 and $15.99


This sweet limited edition compact, one of our all-time favourites here, was inspired by the characters, costumes and scenery of the famous ballet performance, The Nutcracker Suite. Rather appropriately, then the shadow quad’s colours have been labelled ‘snowsflake suite’ and the pretty blush tone is ‘plie pink’.

The Jojoba Company

Did you know that jojoba is the only plant on earth known to produce a liquid wax like that found in youthful human skin? This flagship product for this skincare brand centres around the benefits of this miracle wax. And the gorgeous packaging means it looks lovely on your vanity shelf too.

Not only does this luxe cream leave your skin feeling beautifully soft, but studies suggest that if used twice a day (just a small amount’s all you need each time) it can also help ease the look of stretch marks, and improve skin texture and discolouration.

Shop → Bioexlixia Body Shaper stretch mark diminishing creme, $39.99

Urban Beauty

Angled blusher brush. Carve yourself a sexy chiselled cheek – sucpleted bristles help create a gravity-defying defined cheek bone.

Shop → Urban Beauty United Berry Blush  make-up brush, $8


There are shades of the South Pacific in this aptly-named natural hand and body cream, which contains pure avocado oil, wild blackcurrant berry and hibiscus flower, and is the easiest ways to show your dry hands more love all day. It smells as pretty as it looks and won’t leave your hands greasy either.

Shop → Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream, $33.99
