I have switched from a harsh and chemical skincare regimen to a more natural one - honey to cleanse, rosewater to tone, and I'm experimenting with oils for moisturizers, though I'm using my leftover Neutrogena when I'm being lazy.
My skin has never looked this good. Except for my god awful hormonal pimples that come once a month, my acne is gone. Rosewater smells nice and my skin is less oily. I wish I had started using this sooner.

I love this.
I'm terrible at keeping up with a regime, so I've been using rose water on and off for about a year now. The smell is amazingly refreshing, and it's totally versatile.
Currently I'm mixing it with witch hazel for a toner, but I've used it as a spray, a toner by itself, as well as a face mask (soak rose water in a sheet mask, enjoy).
It's great that it makes you feel immediately more refreshed and ready to take on the world :)

I am so glad I found rose water! My acne cleared up very quickly after I started using rose water, and yet my skin remains supple, smooth, and radiant. I pour the rose water into a spray bottle from Muji and spray it onto my face 3 - 4 times a day. Rose water works like miracle water for a variety of functions: toner, moisturizer, face mist, body mist, etc. It is very cheap too - about $5 for 120mL at Watsons. I am amazed that such a cheap, organic solution outshines all the other expensive skincare brands I have used before e.g. Shu Uemura, Shiseido, Clarins, Clinique. Definitely HG!

Buy this at Indian markets. Or Iranian food markets. Whatever. Rosewater is frequently used in recipes in the middle East and Indian subcontinent. The rosewater you buy from these stores is SO MUCH CHEAPER than buying it at Target or a beauty store. And what you buy will be guaranteed food grade, so no synthetic rose oil. I won't say it is miraculous but it smells a lot nicer than regular water and I don't have to worry about mineral deposits like I do with tap.

I will forever use this as my toner! I use after ocm it smells lush and only costs me 97p a bottle! It's great.

Rose water is definitely a natural product that does wonders to the skin. I try to avoid products that have too many chemical ingredients and rose water is pretty much a must have in skin care for me. I combine Heritage rose water and Earthwise witch hazel to make a toner, it's the only thing that keeps pimples away! I have tried Thayer's version however it just doesn't compare to homemade version.
What I love about it is that it's natural, smells great, and just seems to make my skin glow.
It's pretty easy to find in health stores or organic shops.

I bought this from my local chemist and have been using it instead of my usual witch hazel during the cooler months, as my skin was getting a little dry.
I have found it to be very refreshing and soothing on my skin, without drying me out or causing any irritations. It smells heavenly; very floral and is a pleasure to use. The cheaper version works just as well for my skin as the (much) more expensive versions I have tried in the past.

I am reviewing Essencia Floral Water (Witch hazel). I bought it for $12 at the Nutrition House here in Canada. I am on my second bottle. I have t o say this is the product of the year 2011 for me. It is doing amazing things for my dry sensitive skin and not to mention my ACNE. I have been on acne creams (2 kinds) the whole year. When I had added this to my routine my skin cleared up faster than the acne creams ever did. After the first week I started using this I stopped my acne creams. I don't get cystic acne any more and I actually use this to treat remaining acne. If I have a pimple, I take a cotton swab, soak it in rose water and apply it to the pimple. The next day it is dramatically reduced. I have nearly clear skin for the the first time this year because of this product! I also have super sensitive skin and I was so happy this did not irritate my skin. I use this after I wash my face and before moisturizer. This is the cheapest and most effective toner to prevent and treat acne I have ever used. I have used Clinique's mild toner, and #1, two different Lancome toners and several other drugstore toners that did nothing for my skin or my acne. I have repurchased this and will continue to use it.

Love love love it! My favorite toner. And you can't beat the smell.

Oh rosewater, how I love thee. This product is amazing for my oily, acne prone skin. I use this as a toner (much like other MUAers) and it has definitely done wonders to my skin.
I recently decided to switch my routine to a more natural one. Mainly for the sake of 1. saving money and 2. curiosity. It all started with Josie Maran on QVC and then looked into argan oil and found out about other oils etc etc (this is besides the point).
So, I bought this at Whole Foods for about $5-6. It is made by Heritage Products and comes in a convenient spray bottle. What I do is I spray this on my face (2-3 sprays) after applying my normal toner (Mario Badescu's Cleansing Lotion C in the day or diluted ACV at night). After I spray it, I pat it on my skin all around to make sure my face is evenly coated. My skin is just smooth, radiant, and beautiful. My face also loves this since I'm in the sun a lot so it soothes my face. This definitely gave some life to my skin. My pores look a lot smaller now and my skin texture looks a lot more uniform. However, I will mention that I started using Jojoba oil in my routine at the same time so I have a feeling that contributed to my skin improving in texture, too!
I found a bottle of cheap, pure rosewater (Cortas) for $2.39 at my local Armenian super market and will be using that to fill up my Heritage Product's bottle when I'm out! This is an amazing product. Do give it a chance if you aren't allergic to roses. You'll love the effect in the long term :)

Watch out if you are allelic to plants because you will likely get allergic to this it took me a long time to find out that this was causing irritation to my skin because it seems so harmless at first but the reaction is not immediate.

AMAZING PRODUCT!!! Who knew plain old rose water would make such an effective toner? My thayers witch hazel rose toner was running out, so after class, I went to my local food max and bought this($1.54, can you believe it?!). After a shower, I swipe the rose water on my face with a cotton swap, followed by my Jason's natural beauty oil, and VOILA! I get a smooth complexion and those nasty white heads are practically non-existent! The acne scars are even starting to fade.
P.S Make sure to use the Rose water that is only 50% rose exctract and 50% distilled water. Other rose waters contain sometimes contain nasty additives.

i really like rose water. i buy a litre bottle from an online store and then put around 250ml in a bottle, freeze the litre bottle and decant from the 250ml bottle. i use it as a toner twice a day and also to moisten my face inbetween my retin a/vit c serum/oil applications. i find it cooling and very soothing, it doesnt irritate my skin at all. it can also be good for using in facemasks and henna instead of water, but i havent tried either of those uses yet.

I love love LOVE rosewater. A week ago, I used a mask on my face which made it very sensitive and dry and caused it to grow bumps all over my cheeks/forehead. Moisturizer and other toners just made it worse but then my mom recommended this to me and it's been a miracle. Not only has it cured my dry skin but it's also made it baby soft and unbelievably smooth. Seriously, my skin has not been this good since my pre-teen years. I just rub it between my palms and pat it onto my face, wait a few seconds for it to absorb and then apply my moisturizer and it has had an amazing effect.
Definitely highly recommend this product to anyone with sensitive or dry skin.

Being of Lebanese heritage, rose water has been a product in my house for as long as I've been alive. Mum ALWAYS makes sure that the cupboard is NEVER without a bottle or 3 of it. It's a staple for Lebanese cooking, particularly Lebanese sweets - what we're famous for ;) so it's truly odd that its taken me so long to use it for my skin. I've just been so accustomed to it being a food ingredient my whole entire life that it never stood out to me. But now I use it to remove any last traces of makeup & it really deep cleans my skin. Best of all is that it's natural so no harsh chemicals :) I've never liked the smell (or taste) of straight, plain rose water but I'm getting used to the smell (taste? Eh, it'll never happen lol). Especially since my fix+ is the LE rose one so it's not offensive at all, actually pleasantly memory inducing. The fact that it's anti-bacterial also doubles it as a really effective & efficient spot treatment. Best toner you'll find, & one of the cheapest!

Cortas ROse Water is my saviour.... My husband is from Lebanon and it's a beauty secret from his mother. That being said, it's the best thing I have ever used. It smells awesome and it tones, gets rid of redness after exfoliating. Also this is great after a day at the beach or the boat.
For the price($3.50) for 10 oz it last for months since you only put it on a cotton ball. Directions: Use it in the morning before make-up and at night after cleanser. In less than one week pores will be smaller and skin is smooth and balanced. Available at http://www.amazon.com/Cortas-Rose-Water-10fl-oz/dp/B000LQL9M6

The only drugstore rose water I could get my hands on due to limited supplies in South Africa is Dischem Rose Water. It also contains other ingredients like Aloe juice and unfortunately some colorant which is think is totally unnecessary. It works fairly well for a cheap toner. My skin looks quite sothed and toned after I use it. It is also quite moisturising. I can say it is definitely better than some Nivea toners I used before. I recommend this as a cheap alternative.

This has become the one and only toner that I use.
It works better than most which cost significantly more and it's 100% natural!!!
I really like using it, and like some one already mentioned you can add a few drops of essential oil, i.e. ylang ylang, patchuli, lavender... ect. I personally add sesame oil and lavender essential oil to my rose water as I have acne prone skin and it works wonderfully.
When I start using it regularly I wondered why I hadn't started earlier!!!

I have used many toners in my time, and spent wads of cash but rosewater has worked as well as all of them and better than most. I use it as the final step of cleansing with a big cotton pad. It can also be put into a spritz bottle and used to set powder foundations. I just buy the $1.99 Cedar Brand rosewater from my local Food Basics store and will buy two or three bottles at a time; I don't know if it is as good as the Bulgarian or other expensive rosewaters. A few years ago, I went all purist and made my own rosewater from scratch using organic antique roses from a herb farm. Was a bit of a pain because it spoilt quickly. You can find the recipe in a separate review. Skin Type: Mature, dehydrated, menopausal. The Cedar Orange Blossom water is also very nice and I will use a bottle of this on occasion just to switch things up and alleviate boredom.

I buy this for a dollar at any south asian grocery store. It works wonderfully as a toner. It's gentle but does the trick...I wouldn't use anything else.
