      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Outstanding product, does what it says on the bottle and more.

      Lush Eau Roma Water - Toner Water Yep, it's another Lush product! Sorry guys but seriously I do love these products and it is so much nicer reviewing things that you love! Am I right? Anyway, todays review is about one of the two toner waters I use from Lush, this one is called Eau Roma Water. I am afraid I am a little bit sad, but I love all the fun names of the Lush products and I do like to work out why they have been chosen, some are much easier than others. This one is a bit of a mystery of me if I am honest so if anyone knows please do drop me a comment and let me know! Roma is Rome but I can not see why you would have Rome water, however I did wonder if it was a play on words of aroma water? Because the product is described as an aromatherapy water. Who knows! ABOUT THE PRODUCT Eau Roma Water is one of the range of Toner Water's available from Lush, it is marketed as a kind aromatherapy water to cherish your face. They say that this product is gentle enough to use everyday and that it will help to hydrate the skin without causing it to overreact. The toner water is available in two different sized bottles, both of which are black plastic bottles with a small spray nozzle and clear plastic lid. When I bought this product the shop assistant explained that it could be used as a toner to remove traces of cleaner from the face but also that I could be used as often as you liked during the day to refresh the face. Because the product contains both lavender and rose water it also has a calming effect on the skin and the user. She also informed me that this product could be used over make up, although I have not tried this. This toner is suitable for all skin types, it is hydrating for dry skin, contains gentle and calming ingredients for sensitive skin and will help refresh the face and reduce oils on oily and combination skin. I have also found that this spray has been really good helping my spots calm. HOW TO USE This product can be used two very basic ways, the first is to spray the product directly onto a cotton pad and then apply to the skin, the second methods is to simply spray the product directly upon the skin and let it dry naturally, or wipe the remains from the skin with a cotton pad. The bottle instructions remind us to make sure that we close our eyes very tightly before spraying this product onto our face. INGREDIENTS Lavender Water, Rose Water, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Methylparaben This product has not been tested on animals and is suitable for both vegan and vegetarian. SIZE & PRICES This product is available in two sized bottles 100g at £3.95 200g at £7.25 This product can be bought from Lush stores or online via www.lush.co.uk As with all Lush products you can pop into your local store and request a trial of this product before buying. I did not trial this one but I did my other toner water and the shop assistant sprayed a large amount of the product into a large black tub and soaked a good weeks worth of cotton pads into the product. I had never thought I would be able to trial a spray product, unless the had mini trial products so I was impressed with the imaginative method they had to allow me to try this and also the generous amount of product they gave me to trial. SUMMERY I totally adore this product, I use it on a morning to refresh my face when I wake up, the scent is gorgeous and this product leaves my skin feeling really refreshed but leaves no residue what so ever. I have never been someone who tones everyday until I started using this product, I always found that they were very expensive and that I always had problems with them. My skin is combination, however it is also a little sensitive and prone to spots. I used to find that the toners were to harsh on my skin and I would end up with more spots or dry patches on my cheeks. I have not had any issues at all with this product. I have to say I was shocked at how cheep this product was when I first bought it, I have had the 100g bottle over 2 months now and I still have at least another 2 months worth of use in it. I would recommend this product to anyone without a moments hesitation and would give it 5 stars out of 5.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great product that is part of my everyday routine and will stay there

        My skin type: Dry/ Very dry and sensitive I occasionally have large patches of eczema on my face After suffering with extremely dry and sensitive skin I decided to try Lush's products in the hope they'd be able to make my skin more manageable. With recommendation from one of the employee's I bought Eau Roma Water for use as a toner (along with Ultrabland and Celestial moisturiser). I really love the smell of the Eau Roma Water - it has lavender and rose water in and makes a lovely combination. The product is extremely gentle on the skin and removes all traces of cleanser which is what I wanted it to do. Lush also recommend using it as a "quick facial refresher" which is amazing when on holiday or on a hot day. I use the toner sprayed onto a cotton pad - I normally use 3-4 sprays to start with and top up another 1-2 when I've done 2 thirds of my face. I find it great for my dry skin as although it's removing cleanser it isn't drying just kind of neutral. I love Eau Roma Water and it is part of my everyday skin. I'm almost out but will be buying another bottle as I find it really helps my skin.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A lovely toner which cool, soothes, freshens and cleans the skin

        I have oily skin and I love to wear make up so I have quite a strict skin care regime. One area where I'm not as strict as I could is with toner. On a recent holiday to Rome, I found myself stumbling across a Lush store. And as the saying goes, "When in Rome... buy Eau Roma Toner Water." What does the product do? The purpose of the product is to remove the last traces of make up and oils that your cleanser may have missed, leaving your skin incredibly fresh and clean. It also tightens the pores which helps to regulate the oil production of the skin which stops it getting all shiny. The product can also be used to freshen up the face or to cool your skin down. It has been designed for use on skins which need some extra "love and care". There aren't many ingredients in the product at all. It has been created using Lavender Water which promises to soften the skin and to balance out the oil production and Rose Water which is calming on the skin and promises to reduce any redness and to even out the overall skin tone. And that's about it. How do you use the product? The product can be used in two different ways. When it is being used to tighten the pores, cool down the face or to freshen up the skin then it can be spritzed straight from the bottle on the face. You need to remember to close your eyes and then you let the product dry naturally. If you are using it to give the skin an extra clean then you spray the face and then wipe it clean with a dry or damp cotton wool pad. Packaging and Price The product is contained within a black plastic bottle which has some write writing on it which tells you a little bit more about the product. It works using a pump mechanism and you push down on it in order to release the toner. The bottle has a clear lid in order to stop the product from going off in your bag. I bought the smaller 100ml bottle which over here costs around £4 and you can also buy a larger 250ml bottle which obviously costs more. You can buy the product from your local Lush store or from their online website. Application and Performance The product has a relaxing aroma which, while it is isn't the type of aroma that I would normally go for, it is nice and natural. It smells of lovely fresh roses with a hint of lavender mixed in. The formula does have an added perfume which I can't understand when it's two main ingredients are rose and lavender but there we go. The dispenser is easy to push down. The toner is released with some strength and it doesn't really come out as a gentle mist and it is accompanied by a hizzing sound. You need to make sound that you are holding it a distance away from the face so that you don't get a concentrated area of wetness. I squeeze my eyes tightly shut and I don't really like waiting for it to hit my face. I do wish it was more of a gentle mist. The product doesn't take long to dry on the skin and it doesn't leave it feeling tight and uncomfortable once it has. It doesn't leave any oiliness or stickiness on the skin, and you can't tell that you've applied the product to the skin. My oiliness maybe marginally better than before but it's still there. It does seem to even out my skin tone marginally and reduces the redness when I'm hot and bothered. When using it as a freshener, it does leave my skin feeling awakened and comfortable again, especially when I was wandering around the bust city of Rome. It cooled me down and left my skin feeling fresher. The best thing about this product is its ability to cleanse. After I had cleansed my skin in the usual way, I was shocked to find out how much make up and dirt still came off when I used this. It gets the skin completely clean and removes every last trace of dirt or grease off the skin. It is gentle and hasn't irritated my skin and it hasn't caused me to develop any blemishes. Conclusion All in all, this is a lovely natural product which freshens up the skin and cools down your complexion. It has a relaxing aroma and tightens up the pores, meaning my skin is marginally less oily during the day. It is brilliant when used any cleansing to remove every last trace of make up and it leaves the skin soothed, cool, fresh and clean. I would happily buy this one again.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good quality product for instant moisture.

        My skin can get a little dry, especially during the colder months. Of course you could always just apply some moisturiser, but if you're already wearing makeup, this isn't really ideal. I always make sure to moisturise my face everyday before applying my makeup, but sometimes it still ends up looking dry and dull after a few hours. Enter Lush Eau Roma Water. This product comes in a spray bottle and contains all natural ingredients, most importantly lavender water to soothe, calm and moisturise the skin. It is a gentle toner water so is suitable for sensitive skin. The product does have a strong lavender scent, but it does state on the bottle that it contains lavender so this is to be expected. It doesn't leave any residue and dries fairly quickly so is suitable for use under or over makeup. A couple of sprays is enough to add instant moisture, so one bottle does last a while. It isn't the cheapest of products, but for the same amount I have seen more expensive or equally priced products that didn't do anything for my skin or my makeup. Also it does contain as natural as possible ingredients so you know exactly what you're getting, instead of a whole list of ingredients you know nothing about. Plus if you go on the Lush website, they explain exactly what they use their ingredients for. A pretty cool feature in my opinion. I'be since ran out of this, and not living near a Lush store but desperately wanting another spray similar to this, I've now purchased a bottle of rosewater from Boots. That bottle didn't have a spray pump, so I transferred some of it into the empty Lush one and it seems to be working fine. For now I will be using the Boots and as it is a big bottle I doubt I'll be needing a Lush one any time soon. Otherwise I would have repurchased Eau Roma the day I ran out. If you're planning a trip to Lush any time soon, then I highly recommend purchasing this if your skin is a little on the dry side. Another great product from a great natural cosmetics company.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A gentle floral toner from Lush

        I bought this toner a few years ago. I have tried all of Lush's toners but I currently use Breath of Fresh Air as it works the best for my skin type (which is combination most of the time). I have used this toner recently as my mum gave me the remainder of her bottle as she disliked the smell. The toner contains lavender and rose as they are gentle ingredients and they're perfect for sensitive skin. The toner itself is easy to use. You can spray it straight onto your face as it is (from the bottle) or you can spray it directly onto cotton wool and use the damp cotton wool to tone your face. The toner removes leftover traces of cleanser from your facial skin and it helps with redness and irritation. If your skin is feeling a little irritated (i.e red and/ or sore) then this is the perfect toner for you. The gentle formula helps to calm down irritated skin and it gives your skin a healthy glow without your skin looking troubled. After using this toner my skin feels refreshed and it's ready for moisturiser. This toner is ideal teamed up with one of Lush's more gentle moisturisers. I would describe the smell of the toner as quite floral. It is a nice scent but I don't know if it'd be for everyone as not everyone likes floral scents. Here's a tip: Keep the toner in the fridge for extra refreshment. The cooling toner is great sprayed onto your face during a hot day or when you've just stepped out of a hot shower. A nice gentle toner for troubled skin.

        Disadvantages

        a really great toner

        ==Lush Eau Roma Water== I am a really big fan of Lush and the majority of all of their products but unfortunately because they do not have a store on the island where I live I either have to wait until I have enough money to buy a lot to place an online order or wait until my mainland relatives buy me either a birthday or a Christmas present. Luckily this year for my birthday my mother in law does what she always does and bought me a whole ton of stuff from the Lush store and had it sent down for me. This Eau Roma Water was one of the items included in the bundle and as I have used this before I must say I was very pleased. Especially as my No.7 toner was just on the way out. So basically this item is for toning the skin and should be used with a nice soft cotton wool pad for application. The bottle is a nice size of 250 ml although I do now you can get a smaller 100 ml if you so wish. The prices are all on the website if you choose to buy this and I think the prices in store are marginally cheaper last time I compared however I won't price check for you seeing as this was a gift! The bottle itself is of a good design and the black packaging looks sleek and stylish in my bathroom and matches the other black Lush products I have lined up nicely. There is a small clear lid on the top of the bottle and this covers the pump action nozzle. This is easy to use and makes dispensing the product onto a cotton wool pad easy and means never too much is used. The toner has a very nice light and fresh aroma to it although like I said the aroma is VERY light and merely there. The fact that this toner can be used on sensitive skin is probably why the whiff is so mild and the product is very much like its name - water. However the scents that I can smell slightly area the ones that make up the main ingredients those being rose water and lavender water. It has a fresh and light scent which is nice. The use of the product is really good and I must say that as a toner I think this product works really well. Although light and fresh and natural feeling it does seem to remove any impurities left on the skin after removing make up and leaves my skin looking fresh and rather youthful (of only for a short while). The effects are short lived as the water and freshness seems to soak in well and leave the skin in need of a god moisturising. I wouldn't say it is particularly drying but as with most toners I always need that bit of moisture afterwards because of my slightly dry skin. All in al though I have to say that this product is a top one and one I hope to have bought me again when it runs out. I have used it before and been satisfied and I am usuing now and again am very satisfied. The product smells good, lasts a good deal of time and removed impurities from the skin whilst doing the best job at leaving the skin feeling fresh and clean and looking good. I can only award top marks for this great Lush product. So a 5 out of 5 star rating a as you can guess a high recommendation! I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you Many thanks for taking the time to read.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        any chance of a bigger bottle, Lush?

        At the ripe old age of 22, I am still having some problems with my skin and try my best to stick to a regime to keep problem skin and blemishes at bay. This product was discovered pretty much by accident when raiding my mothers insane cosmetic collection. She didn't even realise that she had it so I figured I would make use of it. When I started using it a while back it only cost something like £5.95 for a 250g bottle whereas it is now priced at £7, a price I am still happy to pay and if you wish to read on you will see why. I adore Lush products because of their natural ingredients, their love of recycling and their no animal testing policy. The packaging of Eau Roma Water is still identical to that pictured with an easy spray pump to use it. The main ingredients that appealed to me were the rose water to calm the skin and reduce redness - I have a very pale complexion and blemishes stand out easily - and the lavender water to balance sebum production therefore reducing the risk of blemishes forming in the first place. The water has a very nice, delicate scent to it and I spray it several times onto a cotton wool pad to use it. As I'm sure a lot of you are aware, you are supposed to cleanse, tone and moisturise on a daily basis, so following a good cleanse with a facial wash or scrub, I apply this toner with a cotton wool pad to remove any remaining excess dirt or oil that has not been removed by my cleanser. I apply the toner very gently and evenly to my face and I always get that little feeling of satisfaction when you get those last few bits of makeup off. I find it to be a very gentle toner that has never caused me any skin irritation (although I do not have sensitive skin at all, I do not believe it would cause any problems to sensitive skin as rose water is very gentle). It has definitely reduced the number of blemishes inflicted on me by my skin and it leaves my skin feeling soft, fresh, well hydrated and clean following usage. I really love it as a cleanser and as long as they will continue to make it, I will continue to buy it. The bottles are fairly big and last a long time, well worth the tiny price. I wholeheartedly recommend it, having spent much more money on toners that were much less effective.

          Disadvantages

          Buy if you have sensitive skin, buy if you don't as well!

          What I first love about this product is that it uses natural ingredients and isn't full of harsh, chemical ingredients. Secondly you can't help but notice the smell! I love it but if you don't like the smell of rosewater then stay away because the smell is quite strong although it does fade. I have also accidentally sprayed this on my hair before mistaking it for heat protection spray and it made my hair smell lovely, I also think it made my hair feel softer. When I get out of my cleanse, tone, moisturise routine I notice my skin getting a bit blotchy and lacking radiance. I believe this toner really helps keep my skin clearer, less sensitive and more radiant. If I have a spray of this toner in the middle of the day it perks my skin up again and gives me a bit of a glow. The price I believe is worth it because you only need 2 sprays a day so it will really last. Some other toners I've had have been more expensive but too harsh on my skin so I will continue using this one.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A good toner from Lush but not quite as nice as their Breath of Fresh Air toner

          I love Lush and their amazing range of bath and beauty products. I'm making my way through their facial skin care range to try and see what works best for my fussy skin. I vary from combination to oily/blemished and sensitive, so it's hard work finding a cleansing routine that fits my needs and the weather conditions! Eau Roma Water toner is available from Lush high street stores and online at www.lush.co.uk in two different sized bottles. A 100g bottle will set you back £3.45, and it's £6.75 for 250g. You get a small saving if you buy the bigger bottle, but the smaller bottle is still a good price and it's more convenient if you're just trying things out like I am. Product description: "Rose and lavender toner for dry, older or sensitive skin. Rose water has been used in face treatments for over 2000 years, not because 'liposomes' and the rest hadn't been discovered yet, but because it's brilliant for softening and cooling the skin. Lavender helps skin to produce the right amount of sebum to keep it more supple. Wealthy ladies of leisure in Ancient Rome would have something very similar to Eau Roma water to take to the public baths. It smells gorgeous and it works and now it's available to those of us who work for a living, too." Toning is a necessary step between cleansing and moisturising and this toner did a good job of removing any last traces of make-up or cleansing products. In fact it was quite shocking to see how much residue can be left behind even after cleansing. I found that this did not seem to moisturise, but equally it didn't strip away any natural oils from the surface of the skin either. I tend to get oily patches develop during the day and using this toner did not keep them at bay, and as is often the case my skin starts pumping out the oil again by the time the afternoon comes around. I didn't feel like it helped with reducing my pores which are naturally quite open. On the plus side my skin did feel very clean and soft afterwards and it was a good stage of preparation before applying my moisturiser. It felt very gentle and cooling on my skin, but it was not as refreshing as the others I have tried and I did not feel like my skin was any more toned or tauter. The natural ingredients include healing lavender water and delicate rose water which are perfect for using on sensitive skin. The smell of this is lovely and natural, it has a light fragrance that is nice to use both day and night, and is noticeable although it does not seem to linger on the skin. I get a distinct scent of lavender and there is a general floral scent to it. I think this would work really nicely in combination with Lush's Imperialis moisturiser as it has a similar smell to it. The ingredients are very few and very basic, including natural flower waters and it's great that this contains no harsh chemicals that strip your skin bare like some of the stronger toning fluids can. Lavender oil has antiseptic and antifungal properties. It is used to treat various skin disorders such as acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammations and also to heal wounds, cuts and burns. Rose oil has astringent properties which tones and lifts the skin. Spritzing this directly onto my face is a bit too shocking for part of my still-half-asleep-while-getting-ready morning routine, so I just remove the lid and pour a bit directly onto a cotton pad and use this to wipe over my skin. I've recently started using re-useable cotton cleansing cloths from the Body Shop instead of disposable cotton wool pads, and these are really effective for applying the toner. I think this is a fair product that is good in some areas, such as cleansing, but it was not quite enough for my skin's requirements. A 100ml bottle lasted me for 3 months so this provided good value for money. I would recommend this to people with sensitive skin as it is very gentle, however I think I will be sticking with Lush's Breath of Fresh Air toner from now on as this seemed to give the best and most consistent results. Ingredients: Lavender Water, Rose Water, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Methylparaben *Occurs naturally in essential oils This is a vegan product and Lush are against animal testing, please keep your beauty cruelty free!

            A natural toner with natural ingredients!

            I bought this to go with Lush Ultrabland cleanser. This toner comes in a black bottle with a pump dispenser. It is available in two sizes 100g which costs £3.45 and a 250g bottle which costs £6.75. This particular toner contains rose and lavender, it is recommended for sensitive and older skins. Lush say that rose water is good for softening and cooling the skin, while lavender helps skin to produce the right amount of sebum to keep it more supple. The ingredients are listed online as; Lavender Water (Lavandula angustifolia), Rose Water (Rosa centifolia), Limonene, Linalool, Perfume, Methylparaben. This is very straigtforward to use you can simply spray it onto your face and use cotton wool to mop up any excess, or you can use it in conjunction with one of Lush's cleansers (I use Ultrabland) and spray a cotton wool pad with the water to remove the cleanser from the skin. After using this my skin felt toned but not dry. I normally avoid toners as a lot of them have too much alcohol in and make my skin really tight! This product has a slight floral smell, I don't like the scent of lavender normally but you can't really notice it in this product. I would recommend this to those with sensitive or dry skins. It moisturises and doesn't leave your skin irritated. Also because this product comes in a bottle with a spray pump if you spray it onto cotton wool you use less as you don't need to 'soak' the pad. This product lasts for months. I would give it 5 out of 5. This is a must have!

            A gentle toner from Lush

            Lush - Eau Roma Water (Toner) My husband was in the Derby Westfield centre with me and while he was having his hair cut I made my way to Lush which as many of you will know is a shop that has a certain magnetic appeal to me. They were not very busy and as I handed over my 5 pots to be recycled and claim mu free face pack, the lovely assistant was tempting me to a number of other products. One of which I did buy and the others I was given very generous samples of in order to try them. There will be many reviews to follow folks as i must have about 30 products in various drawers and in the bathroom, beside my bed etc. Eau Roma water is a gentle toner for dry to normal skin. The main beneficial ingredients are rose and lavender water which tone your skin gently. I was recommended this as I am of a certain mature age and this is particularly good on dry, older or sensitive skin. So I was advised to use 'full of grace serum block first then the face pack then rinse it off and wipe my face with this toner before applying whichever face cream I fancied. If I had makeup on I would have had to remove that prior to all the other things. I was advised to use their makeup remover and was given samples of ultra bland and 9 to 5 to try as well as this toner. I did very well on this visit as I bought one product and came out with about 6 others! Back to the toner. I am used to toners that really feel like they are doing something fairly drastic to my skin. To quote another reviewer ( tallulahbang/joker) 'toner is hurty stuff that stings like hell' but Tallulah/joker you should try this as it really doesn't sting. Now, being of the generation that was brought up with 'If it hurts it's doing you good' maxim i wondered if this was actually toning my skin. Looking at the tissue/cotton wool after using it didn't seem to really show that the top layer of my skin had been stripped off but according to Lush it is good for removing impurities on the surface of your skin. Maybe the impurities are too small to see. I did find that it removed the make up remover nicely leaving my skin feeling smooth and non greasy . it also worked well at removing the last remnants of the facepack after I had washed off most of it with warm water. The toner does close your pores after using warm water too. I have also used it during the day at home if my skin is feeling a bit tired looking and it made me feel fresh and awakened which was just what I needed. This toner comes in a small black plastic bottle with a spray nozzle for easy application. On the front there is white writing explaining what the product is and there is a Lush logo at the top of the label. On the back there is the little sticky a label with a picture of the person who made it on a green background. It shows the date it was made and the use by date. There is also a use by date but i am afraid I am not hugely bothered by these as I am not eating the product but I do suspect that the freshness of the ingredients starts to wear off and the product probably becomes less efficient. The little pot is quite a sturdy one and provided the lid is kept over the pump then it will probably be okay for packing and using when travelling. I did find that the pressure in the plane made my foot cream pot leak over other things so be aware. The fact that it is plastic does mean that it will survive the odd dropping on the bathroom tiled floor without disastrous effects. The plastic keeps it fresh and the pump means that only what you need is dispensed and there is no wastage. I am not sure whether these little squirty pots are taken back for recycling like the bid pots and the stick perfume containers, I will have to ask next visit. Now to the ingredients: Lavender Water (Lavendula hybrida), Rose Water (Rosa centifolia), Purfume, Methylparaben. Now in my view the date is probably not so important as methylparaben is a preservative and anti fungal agent. There is apparently no evidence to say they are harmful to humans in beauty products. Apparently many fruits especially blueberries produce these naturally so it doesn't seem to be too offensive. Rose water has been used by women for face treatments for over 2000 years because it's well known for softening and cooling the skin while the lavender helps skin to produce natural sebum to keep it supple. The ingredients are simple and the product works effectively in my humble opinion. Now this stuff looks clear like water and you spray it onto cotton wool to remove excess cleanser or to refresh skin. It smells very subtely and pleasantly of a combination of lavender and rose. It is not a strong smell at all which I think is good as you don't really want it smelling strongly in a toner. I have only used this on cotton wool as I only have a sample in a small black pot but if I had the spray i would be very tempted to spray it straight onto my face ( eyes and mouth firmly closed) . I do spray my Evian water onto my face when travelling and find it really gives me a lift and helps with dehydration on the plane. I think this would be excellent for this too. Eau Roma Water costs £6.75 pounds for 250g and £3.45 for 100g.I have found that in my local Lush shop they have such helpful assistants who are great at helping me find the best product for my skin and have had a number of samples to take home to try, this being one and it is one I will be going back to buy as it works in a lovely gentle way. So thank you once again Lush for the sample and I will be coming back for this one. This is a lovely gentle product that works for me and my mature tired sensitive skin. Thanks for reading.

              Toner for dry skin

              Skin care products have been an essential for me since I was about eleven, when I began to get dry skin and started using a cleanse, tone and moisturise routine. These days my skin is oilier but I still stick to my routine as I want to make sure I maintain nice skin in my old age! I have sensitive skin and for many years could only use Simple products, as they were unperfumed and the only things that didn't make my skin itch. In the last few years since discovering Lush, however, I've come to realise that most of their products are also suitable for my skin, possibly down to their fresh, natural ingredients. I'm reasonably confident that whatever I buy from here should be fine for my skin. With the onset of winter, my normally combination skin becomes drier because of the cold weather, so when I ran out of toner and visited Lush to pick up another, I chose their Eau Roma toner. This is the toner for dry skin - Lush also do two other liquid toners, Breath of Fresh Air for normal skin, and Tea Tree Water for oily skin, as well as several toner tabs. Eau Roma comes in two sizes. I chose the smaller 100ml size as I knew from experience it would last a long time. As it is a spray, you end up using a lot less as you can spray it directly onto the face. I found this out when I bought the Tea Tree Toner which lasted me about four months. Therefore, the £3.45 price (£6.75 for the larger size) is actually good value. The black bottle is simple but attractive, and the pump spray works well. I've never had any problems with the bottle leaking or breaking. It seems fairly hardwearing, and is reusable after it is finished, so long as you wash it out thoroughly. The toner contains rose and lavender water which are designed to help tackle dry skin. The toner smells lovely - floral and gentle. It feels lovely and cooling on the face. I haven't had any nasty reactions from it. I've used the toner alongside various cleansers, and this winter I haven't had the dry patches I usually get. How much of this is down to the toner and how much to the cleansers I'm not sure, but the toner seems to be helping. I tend to cleanse my face first, then spray the toner directly onto my face before wiping with a cotton wool pad. I do keep my eyes closed when I spray, but if I've ever got any in my eyes it doesn't sting, which is a definite plus! There's not a lot that can be said about this toner. It does the job and is pleasant to use, and that's all I really care about! Eau Roma toner can be bought from Lush shops or via mail order, as well as online.

                A great product from lush... again A*********

                Eau Roma Water I bought this product along with the other products that I bought thoday from the trafford centre. I had not used lush until today and I'm really glad that I did buy it. I had seen all of the good reviews of their products and I though that they must be good. And I went into the store and it is just amazing, it smells so nice! The toner contains rose water and lavender water and other natural ingredients and they have not irritated my slightly dry and sensitive skin. It is designed for use of dry, sensitive, normal or older skin and it keeps your skin hydrated. I first used it a few hours ago and it was really easy to use, you just either spray it directly onto your face or what I did is that with my nose piercing it is best to keep products away from it to avoid infection - so I spray it onto a small clean cotton wool ball and clean my face with it. It also gets rid of any impurities in my skin and it also gets rid of little bits of the angels on bare skin cleaner that I used before this. It smells so nice and it is so refreshing on my skin, so it would be great for traveling and holidays int the sun to keep your skin soft and hydrated. It also made my skin so soft, supple and smooth and the cleanser and the roma water together made my skin matte and it is still matte after about 4/5 hours! Conclusions *All natural ingredients - rose and lavender water *Simple clean black white packaging *Smells so nice *Hydrates and softens and smoothes my skin *Very refreshing *Light and airy *It was about £3.45 for the 100g one that I have but there is also a 250ml or 200ml one which is about £6.50 *it can be bought from the lush shop or from the site www.lush.co.uk *update* Still working really well and it is now part of my main daily skin care system. It has lasted ages now even though I use it everyday and I would really recommend this product! Thank you for reading my review

                A gorgeous natural spray on facial toner that makes working in the office bearable!

                This product is a spray on toner and it's absolutely beautiful. It smells subtle but has a natural scent that smacks of a bit of luxury. It can be used after cleansing to get rid of the last traces of cleanser but it can also be used throughout the day whenever your face needs a pick-me up! When you spray it on your face it's like a gentle cool breath, it instantly hydrates your skin, gives you a fragrance that will relax you but because of the natural ingredients in the spray it doesn't dry your skin out at all (unlike many other toners). I work in an office where the atmosphere tends to be hot and stuffy and skin can easily become dehydrated. I keep this spray next to my computer and whenever I feel too hot or dry I spray my face and sometimes neck and hands to give me refreshment.

                Disadvantages

                A lovely fresh toner, perfect for dry skin

                Eau Roma Water is the third of the Lush toners I have tried. I had fairly good results from the first two - Breath of Fresh Air and Tea Tree Water, so I had high hopes for this. I was especially looked forward to it, as it says it is suitable for 'dry to normal' skin. My skin seems to alternate between being dry and being 'normal', so I thought this would be perfect for me. The toner like the other Lush products comes in a black bottle with a spray pump. I do sometimes think that the spray is a little bit annoying, because when spraying this onto cotton wool, I sometimes feel that some of this is wasted. You can of course use this as a facial spray, but again, it's not too good, as it uses a manual pump spray rather than a aerosol, so the mist is not as fine, and you can find the toner dripping from your face. Anyway to use this, you just wipe over the skin like you would with any other toner. It has a pleasant, yet very gentle floral scent. This contains lavender and rose water, and I would say the scent is more lavender than rose. I am not a huge fan of lavender, but this is such a gentle, watered down sort of a lavender scent that it doesn't particularly bother me, and I actually quite like the smell of this product. As for effects on the skin, the first thing I noticed was that this really cools the skin. I like my bath water to be really hot (I'm told this is a typical woman thing?) and sometimes when I get out, my skin stays feeling hot for ages. I've found that if I wipe this over my skin, it instantly cools and refreshes it. I find that this is really good for my dry skin - a lot of toners dry the skin out, however this one, although I wouldn't necessarily say it adds moisture, it doesn't dry my skin further. Also if you have used something on your face that makes your skin feel tight, such as soap, this seems to help quite a lot, and for me gets rid of the dryness. The toner is good at getting rid of any excess cleanser which has been left on my skin as well as make-up the cleanser has left behind. Unfortunately like the Tea Tree Water I didn't feel that this actually did anything to improve the tone of my skin, but for me the most important thing is to remove any left over cleanser/make-up, so that doesn't bother me very well. This product is available in two sizes - 100g bottle - £3.10 250g bottle - £6.21 Both are available from Lush stores or online at www.lush.co.uk Overall, I am quite pleased with this toner and would use it again. It smells nice, is very refreshing and cooling, and does not dry out my dry skin further. Recommended!
