Rose Water is one of the best discoveries i have made in skincare..
Good enough for use by itself and versatile enough to be used in conjunction with other products to help the skin...
- Got Oily skin: Mix with drops of Lavender Oil or Ylang Ylang
- Got Mature skin: Add Sandalwood Oil
- Got Dry Skin: Add Jojoba Oil
- Got Acne: Try Tree tree Oil
- Out in the Sun: Spritz all over face to cool down skin and prevent a tan
Consistent use of rose water has lightened a lot of my acne scars (though this takes months) and has made my skin quite soft.
However you should be realistic in your expectation from this product, because it ain't no miracle, it is after all just water with a little bit of rose oil. It does greatly improve the results you get out of your other products like face packs and moisturizers.
Using a good quality rose water is essentials as a lot of commercial products use synthetic rose oil which does nothing for the skin. Most of these products contain menthol to produce a cooling sensation which actually is dehydrating for the skin.
I use Aroma Magic Skin Toner. This is a range developed by Aromatherapist Blossom Kocchar.
This toner has Extracts of Rose, Lavender, Peppermint, Sandalwood and pure essential oils of Witch hazel, Juniper, Basil & Tea tree. and is 100% alcohol free.

All i need to do is transfer it to my spray bottle, add a few drops of Jojoba oil to provide extra comfort as i spend the entire day in Air-Conditioned environment and am good to go..
