Rose water has once again become a staple in my daily skin care routine.
Having used it frequently many years ago, I somehow just stopped. However, I was recently reminded about it from the lovely Stephie Estie in one of her posts a couple of weeks back. I rushed out to buy one again and quickly fell in love with toners once more.
The one I’m currently using is the rose water from Roberts as it was the first very one I ever tried and grew up watching my mother use it.
Packaging & Benefits
The Italian packaging on this royal blue plastic bottle (300ml) essentially states that applying the product on cotton pads after cleansing will help refresh and tone the skin, close pores and prevent against any redness or irritations on even the most sensitive of skins.
I find that not only does it help with all this, but it also effectively removes any remaining make up that I may still have after cleansing. It’s also very handy for cleansing the neck and behind the ears – despite having a shower beforehand, I find it surprising at how much make up still remains, particularly on the neck!
Best of all, I love the cooling and refreshing feeling this leaves on the skin!
Did you know? This rose tonic water is made from the Centiflora rose petal and distilled in spring water, which probably explains why it’s so delicate on the skin.
Application & Scent
This is best applied after the skin has been cleansed and before moisturiser is applied. It’s subtle and soothing scent of roses will leave your skin feeling refreshed and smooth without any dryness or tightening of the skin.
Retailing at a modest €2.00 it’s definitely worth a try.
Having used this for the last couple of weeks, I can definitely say that I’m glad to be using it again. It makes my skin feel a lot cleaner without any harshness and leaves a nice refreshing feeling.
Are then any others that you can recommend?
