Rose Water - is it a waste of money?

By Robyn Dowsley - June 09, 2017

A friend of mine sells Younique and I was always impressed with the way her make up stayed on and how good it looked so I went ahead and got myself a great bargain and brought the presenters kit.  It was amazing value with no strings attached to be a presenter if I didn't want to.  The bundle came with a bunch of products, one of them was a product I never thought I would use and never thought I needed.  It was Rose Water.  I honestly thought, what is this?  This is an absolute waste of money, why would anyone want to buy something called Rose Water…. This has got to be a joke!

It took me a while before I even looked at it. Because I thought it was an absolutely pointless product.  First I tried it after I'd washed and moisturised my face.  I spritzed it on my face and thought - wow that's refreshing.  It smelt lovely and made me feel fresher. However I wasn't convinced. But because I had it I thought maybe I should do some research and find out exactly what rose water is used for and maybe I can put it to some good. 

I was surprised to see the range of things it was recommended for and have started using this product for so many things.

I have tried it in my hair - after washing and drying and it made my hair feel so nice.  I am able to go longer without my roots going greasy between washes.  It tames my frizz!!! Do you know how many products I have tried to tame my frizz with? They have either not worked or they have but have left my hair looking flat and greasy and I would have to wash my hair every day because you wouldn't want a build up of the product on your hair because it would look as though you hadn't washed your hair in a week. 

I use rosewater now as a setting spray for my make up - I find it works just as good as the translucent setting powder.

I now use it to spray my face when I am feeling a little hot on the face or feeling tired…. Instant re freshness!  I have gone from not liking this product to thinking its one of the best things in my make up bag!
