“Luxurious Lebanese rosewater, combined with aloe, witch hazel, and rose essential oil, gives a refreshing softness to the skin in this alcohol-free, non-drying face tonic. Use after cleansing and before moisturizing – and any time your face needs a soothing, toning breath of fresh air. Smells heavenly.”
Lebanese Rose Hydrosol, Aloe barbadensis (aloe) Juice, Witch Hazel Hydrosol (alcohol-free), Rosa Damascena (rose) Essential Oil
Though I like the cute floral illustrations on the label I’m not a big fan of screw-top lid bottles as they are not travel-friendly nor easy to use. I really wish this product came in a pump/spray bottle. Also, the ink on labels is not waterproof and bleeds if you touch the bottle with wet hands.
This watery liquid contains small quantity of rose essential oil that floats on top. You need to shake it before applying so all the ingredients make their way to your skin. As you put it on you can smell the lovely roses and feel the refreshing, soothing, somewhat cooling effect. Lightly hydrates and feels luxurious. As it is all-natural product formulated without preservatives you need to store it in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.
I’ve been using it for many months (almost through the bottle) on and off as toner after cleansing, alternating it with pure rose water for days when my skin needs some hydration. It is an essential pampering step in my skincare routine as I don’t feel like applying any serum/moisturizer straight after cleansing. Always soothes and refreshes my skin.
OVERALL IMPRESSION & RECOMMENDATION
A nice face tonic/toner for people who love rosewater/rose hydrosol, love the smell of roses, like aloe vera in their skincare products or use toners or face spritz. Works great for slightly dehydrated, normal and combination skin types and in all seasons except for when it is warmer. Doesn’t do any harm to my sensitive, acne-prone skin.
