A great property I love about rose water toner is that it seems to naturally balance our skin’s oil production. I have combination, acne-prone skin and sensitive skin (possibly the worst combination out there). Whenever my face is oily during the day, I spray this mist, which I find more effective in curbing excess oil than blotting. It also helps to reduce redness on my skin. Rose water toner is known for its hydrating and moisturising properties when applied to dry skin.

  • As a facial toner: At night, after cleansing, soak cotton pad with rose water toner. Apply in upwards strokes on face and neck.
