I bought this recently and immediately fell in love. I added this and the organic face balm to my daily routine. I like to use the toner after cleansing and to freshen up throughout the day as needed. I use the Olay Pro-X cleansing brush so my skin gets pretty clean, but I like this toner because it feels like it balances my skin back out after cleansing. Sometimes I use the toner to freshen up so that I don't wash my face more than twice a day and over dry it. I also sometimes use it to set makeup or scent my hair after styling.
Aqua, Alcohol Denat., Glycerin, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Citronellol
SKIN DEEP SCORE:
2 (low health concern)
-Smells great! Like a bouquet of roses!
-Light on the skin. Not sticky or greasy. Sinks right in and feels natural
-Gentle, unlike most 'toners'
-Non drying, even a bit moisturizing thanks to the glycerin.
-Improved oil levels. Seems to balance them out.
-Complexion has improved overall. Gives my skin a natural blush!
-Seems to reduce redness
-Would prefer a spray bottle, but that's easy to fix.
-Price. I think it's worth it, but others may feel it's a bit expensive. I paid I think $8 at Target.
Overall I think this toner is great for calming the skin and improving complexion and leveling out oily/dryness. I don't suggest it if you are looking for something to remove makeup. It works for gently freshening up any oiliness that occurs naturally during the day but not to remove heavy product/makeup. If your cleansing method doesn't get your skin clean, look at a better cleanser but don't blame this great toner! It would also be great for sensitive and acne prone skin because it's very gentle and reduces redness.
Also, another reviewer gave a negative review because they can buy rosewater locally for cheaper, but I feel that is an unfair review. This isn't JUST rosewater, for one thing. There are lots of rosewaters out there that are cheaper and more expensive than this, it's really more about what works for you. I don't have access to cheaper rosewater in my area. Target is convenient and the price is good, so I am happy.
I am almost done with the first bottle so I bought another one. My skin just soaks this up, especially in the winter. It's the most gentle toner I've ever used. It never burns or stings skin. I've tested it on very dry and red skin, and it still didn't make it worse. Rose is a natural antiseptic for skin and it also reduces redness. This smells like roses, but it's not overwhelming when you're applying it. Skin just feels smooth and silky. It's a great toner for dry skin. I think this is the only rosewater available to most people since it's sold at Target nationwide. It used to be only health food stores that carried it or you had to make your own. Boots Botanics has a lot of fantastic products for the price, and this is no exception for $8 a bottle. Update: Sadly, they have decided to change packaging and put this into a spray bottle as more of a refresher than an actual toner. It's about the same price though. I won't stop buying it, but there have been complaints in the UK that many Botanics formulas were changed or altered.
I used this with several other burts bees products and it ended up being returned. It had a nice smell, but it didn't seem to do much for me. I ended up breaking out badly after I used all the products for a month.
Lovely smell, but broke me out...Ive decided that toners do not suit my skin and seem to make it worse
I love this. I don't use it as a toner usually though. I apply it with a cotton ball and then wash it off (about 10 splashes) as suggested by "Sprout a Revolution" creator. My skin loves this. And my skin is probably the most sensitive, pickiest skin out there--meaning extrememly acne prone (any unnatural toothpaste breaks me out) and usually oily and then combination.
The lid? Not so great. But the bottle is cute. Yes, it has a small amount of alcohol denat--but the toner is organic.
Overall? Pretty great stuff if you're looking for a non chemical-laden potion that science deemed was okay to be absorbed into your skin. Oh and also--it makes your skin feel so soft and nice.
UPDATE: Does have chemicals which dried out my skin and made me break out and didn't keep me from breaking out. Thanks...not!
I love the smell of rosewater so I was very excited to try this product. The packaging is really great, very clean looking and the cap is secure; excellent for reusing the bottle! However, this is a little bit pricey for a drugstore product at $7.99 for 5 oz.? I used this bottle up within a couple of months. I also feel like it doesn't clean off as much dirt as my favorite Alba hibiscus toner, but it is gentler. I would purchase again but there are probably better rosewater toners out there.
GREAT product! VERY cheap for such an amazing buy! I spray this on my face after my morning shower and it makes my skin look very luminous and makes my skin so soft later in the day. I love it and will repurchase it whenever I am out.
I use this daily as a setting spray (just put into a little spray bottle from Target $.99) it has replaced my MAC Fix + and UD All Nighter setting sprays. It really takes some of the matte out of my face/I use lots of makeup and set it with powder, it is tricky to get it to look mostly like skin, but I find that this step at the end really does the trick. I use this after all makeup is on except mascara. let it dry and then mascara and out the door! I do not find it drying and the scent is light and pleasant, and fades quickly.
This smells soooo nice. I love it. So much so that I spend a good amount of time just sniffing it in the morning after cleansing my face. Uh.., on with the review. o_O
To be honest, I bought this not because i'm a fan of toners but because I wanted to have a complete set of products. Is that weird? I ran out of all of my face cleansing products recently (DDF glycolic cleanser and glycolic toner and Ambi SPF 15 moisturizer) and decided to try the Boots line of skincare since the reviews on the Target site were so positive. I also wanted to make my regimen simpler and more organic (read, not so damn expensive). I bought this toner along with the Boots foaming cleanser (the one in the tube not the one that comes in a pump), daily moisturizer, and the Alba Botanica sea enzyme scrub at my local Target. So far, I really like it. I don't think the toner does much, but I don't mind since it's the second to last step in my cleansing routine. By the time I tone, my face is pretty clean already. If you're looking for a toner that removes makeup or does anything more than refresh your face, this isn't it. It's a simple, delicious smelling, no frills toner. I've yet to use it as a spray, but that sounds like a great idea. I plan on buying three more of these before I move to college this summer, that's how much I love this product. Again, it doesn't really do much but that's why I love it. It only contains 4 ingredients, one of them being water. While cute, the packaging isn't very practical (screw top lid). It's not a big deal, though. I also like how the bottle is clear. Oh, and did I mention how heavenly this smells? ;) Hope this helps.
This is a very underrated toner. It doesn't do much, if anything, except give your skin a quick boost so I don't have a lot to say of it. I think it's a great toner in the morning if you don't feel like washing your face but still want to have a clean slate for your AM skincare/makeup
