Boots Botanics Organic Rose Water Facial Toner
I saw this product on the boots website a couple of months ago and it sounded good, so I thought I would try it out. I have been using for product for a while now and I still have mixed opinions on it but overall it is an average product and I think I will stick to my Lush Eau Roma Water.
- Product description (from boots.com)
"Refresh and remove the last traces of make-up and surface grime with Botanics Organic Rosewater Toner. Organic damask rosewater naturally cleanses without drying, leaving the skin smooth, supple and toned."
- About the product
This toner comes in a clear bottle and the bottle contains 150ml or 5 us fl oz of toner. The bottle has a screw top lid which closes tightly and the bottle has quite a lot of information printed on it about the actual product, how to use the product and also and ingredient list which is very short and is as follows: Aqua, Alcohol denat, Glycerin, Rosa damascena flower oil, citronellol - the last four ingredients are certified organic ingredients. This toner is also stated to contain extracts authenticated by Royal botanical garden, Kew. Also the packaging can be recycled - or re-used for something else.
- Using the product and results
Using this product is really easy, I use this product after I have cleansed my face or if I did not wear any make up that day then this product will stand in for my cleanser. I just dispense some of this toner onto a cotton pad and then I sweep the cotton pad all over my face, jaw and neck. If I have had makeup on that day then I will take some more time doing to make sure there is not make up or cleanser residue on my skin. The toner works fairly well and it smells really nice too - like Turkish delight! This toner works really quite well at making sure there is no makeup or cleanser residue on my skin but this product is not that good at removing makeup by itself - although it is really good at removing lip products when applied to a cotton bud. Overall, using this product is very easy and quick and it works fairly well on the whole. Although one of the results that I do not like after using this product is that it does irritate my skin a bit, which is not good and it obviously makes me not want to use this product. When my skin is more normal than sensitive due to eczema, then this product works better but my skin is fairly sensitive all of the time so I haven't really liked using this product. Although when I do use this toner my skin feel smooth and clean afterwards and it does not seem to dry my skin out too much - but I definitely have to apply my moisturiser as soon as possible after this product as my skin is extremely dry.
Overall, I have experienced mixed results with this product as it does work fairly well as a toner and it makes my skin smooth but it does irritate my skin and for this reason I will not be buying this product again - I think I will stick to my lush eau roma water from now on, as it does not irritate my skin at all.
- Price and availability
This product can only be bought from boots stores and boots.com, and this 150ml bottle is priced at £4.07, which is quite a specific price and a tiny bit expensive for what it is in my opinion - and as it irritates my skin.
