This Valentine’s Day, everyone will be thinking about the concept of ‘love’. At JINMEE, we believe a big part of love is self-love and to love your skin.

A Rose is highly symbolic of Valentine’s day and love. Therefore, we have put together some helpful tips about how using Rose-based skincare products to create a skincare routine will help you to practice self-care and self-love.

By using a Rose-based toner, you are able to tone the skin whilst still being gentle and hydrating. Through using a toner with Rose as a focused ingredient, it enables you to take care of your skin.
