I've gone through several of these and will always have one on hand. I have evolved into buying the bigger sizes and, having saved a couple of the smaller ones I went through, decanting into those. A mini in my makeup bag, a medium in my bedroom, a giant one in the bathroom!

There are so many uses. Honestly, this doesn't actually DO much beyond feel and smell amazing as well as provide a bit of extra hydration, but I find it indispensable. I spray it on top of my mineral foundation or any time after applying powder to cut down that dry look and set it. I spritz it on my makeup brushes to soften a dry application. I use it on my hair to revive waves and make it smell nice. I apply before lotions and oils to aid absorption. I spray my entire face willy nilly whenever I need a pick-me-up. It has never broken me out and it never feels weird or sticky on my skin, just fresh.

It's cheap, made with simple, good quality ingredients, has many uses, and makes me happy. There are a lot of similar, fancier, more expensive facial mists...but why?

I just bought my second bottle of this. It's never broken me out and I'm really surprised at the reviews that say it does. I guess some people must be sensitive to glycerin. I really love this stuff! I just give it a good shake and spray my face all over after applying makeup. The ingredients are simple and natural, which I appreciate. In the summer, I used this all over my whole body after showering instead of using lotion. I love the rose scent!

I like just the version of this that's just rosewater...The Rosewater and glycerin just sits on top of your skin and feels oily returned it won't buy it again

This product is EXTREMELY hit or miss! I hardly ever break out and if I do it's only one little pimple. I used this spray once over makeup and once without. Both times I developed bumps all over my nose and huge/ painful cystic acne breakouts (I have never had pimples like these before this spray). On the other hand I have sprayed it on my sister and she loves it, no breakouts for her. If this product agrees with your skin you will love it and it does look beautiful over makeup, but in my opinion it isn't worth the risk because you could end up with terrible breakouts like myself.

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.
