This is such a horrible product. It broke me out with cystic acnes all over my face. what the hell!!!
The ingredients are water, glycerine, and rose oil. I won't break out by any of the ingredients which I had used separately.
Who knows what else are in it. Not reliable company. horrible! horrible! horrible!

I gave the packaging a three, because I wish that the atomizer offered a bit more of a fine spray. It is no better than your average sprayer you can get at Walmart.
I also think that when purchased from my local health food store the price is a bit high. I believe I paid nine dollars for the 4 oz bottle.
But those are my only complaints. I love using this product. I don't actually use it as a toner or a body lotion as implied by the directions. I use this in multiple ways, on bare skin when I just need some refreshment, I spray on my face, neck and chest. And I use it before applying my sunscreen/tinted moisturizer. It helps them glide on very smoothly. It leaves a dewy finish.
From what I understand, glycerin is not oil soluble, so I do not apply after putting oil on my face as I don't think it'll do anything. I apply to my face after it is been freshly cleansed but doesn't have anything else on it. After that I will use my moisturizing oils or creams.
As I have found, glycerin tends to leave a somewhat sticky residue. It's great for holding on to make up and other things, but it doesn't completely absorb all the way in for about 30 minutes.

It is a great light moisturizer and make upsetting spray and prep spray. The smell is wonderful, but I find it to fade after about five or 10 minutes. I tried making do it yourself versions of this kind of spray, but I've never got the proportions right and I prefer just to purchase the ready-made spray, and I really like the Heritage brand.
Great for hair too!

Heritage Store Rosewater & Glycerin is labeled as a body/facial lotion but it's more of a facial mist rather than a moisturizing lotion. I buy this in the 8 fl oz bottles with the "atomizer" spray top. I love the minimal ingredients (Just water, glycerin and rose oil), the way it smells (A lovely, natural, light rose scent) and the way it feels on my skin. I use it in the morning and at night after cleansing, and then apply my skin treatments and lotion over it. Although it doesn't create significant results on the skin when used by itself, it's great for getting a layer of moisture on your skin that your lotion can then lock in. My brother who has dry skin with eczema loves using this spray as well, and when he used this along with Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin cream his facial dryness and eczema completely went away.
If your makeup looks a little dry, you can also mist this on your face and it will make your makeup sink into your face and leave a dewy hydrated finish.
It's a simple, basic facial mist that I buy again and again. I do notice a slight variation in the quality of the "atomizer" spray tops though. I've had some that spray in a fine mist and some that spray with more force, although none have been a problem.

I came across reviews for this product when I was searching for the perfect toner. I was hoping for this to help clear my skin up, and it didn't really do anything amazing there (ACV helped with this - but that's a different post).
However, I have always loved the smell of roses and this spray is super refreshing and instantly calms my skin. It has helped with hydration, and is perfect to spritz a bit after a long day, gym workout, or just a little wake-me-up.
The sprayer deposits a very fine mist, but my only complaint is I like to spray a lot so I've run out of this rather quickly. One 6 oz bottle lasted me maybe a month? Either way I love the smell so I'll always keep a bottle of this around!

Pricey for the quantity and quality. I do hope it is 100% vegetable glycerin. It does not seem to be, as it caused some rash/breakout when used on facial skin as a toner.

I like using this after a bath. It is quite refreshing. I also use it in summer. Love the sweet scent.
One good thing about this product is the scent of rosewater and no preservatives. Packaging is very basic and the liquid leaks out of the cap.

Overall I like the Heritage products.

For all those who are thinking about trying the glycerin rosewater of this brand, I'd HIGHLY recommend you use the regular rosewater by Heritage, don't give up on Heritage!

I was so psyched to try this, being a natural product. My skin was so dry this year and I was looking for something to boost my other moisturizers. Alas, it was not meant to be. This made my cheeks flush (almost like a rash), and several breakouts appeared immediately. I don't think this product is comedogenic, though I may just be allergic to the rosewater in it. I'm fine with glycerin in other products, and from what I've read, rosewater is supposed to increase circulation & may lend a "rosy glow" to your skin. In my case, it could be a stronger reaction, who knows. Like other reviewers have stated, proceed with caution if you have sensitive or breakout-prone skin. One nice thing I noticed was that the rose scent was only strong upon application, but then faded away once it absorbed (didn't linger). So if you're not a fan of the smell, it's only temporary.

Really, really, REALLY wish this worked for me since it gave me such an amazing glow but nope, my sensitive acne prone skin just had to react and give me a bunch of rash pike pimples & a few small/med size cysts. If you have the same skin type as me, Better do a patch test on an area of your face you don't typically break out in. So upset about this product considering rosewater is supposed to be great for my skin type :( too scared to try other brands of rosewater now

Finally... I found how to get that healthy glow. Simply rosewater and glycerin. Who knew. I heard great things about this and decided to purchase. I put it on before bed and wake with a glowing face. I also spray some before putting on my makeup (mineral powder) and I spray after to set it - and it gives my face this healthy glow that I've just never had before. Laaa! I just feel so pretty! And it is quite affordable - 8 oz goes for 5-7 dollars on vitacost. Highly highly recommend.

I've been buying this for years. It's wonderful. I use this a few different ways. First of all, when I'm applying a full face of foundation, I spray my face with this before applying. It helps foundation to look very natural, like skin, and makes it blend like a dream. After I have applied my foundation and set with powder, I lightly spray my face to get rid of the powdery look. I also use this as a mixing medium. Sometimes I use eye shadow as eyeliner and I use this to wet the brush.

This is an amazing product. It is completely natural with no chemicals or preservatives. MAC Fix + can't even compare to this...for me anyways. LOVE.
