Lets talk rose water, a great inexpensive D.I.Y facial mist and toner that I am  currently obsessed with. I love using natural remedies, rose water is packed with plenty of benefits, the fact that you can pick it up at your local food store, cosmetics supply shop or a pharmacist  makes it easily accessible.
I use a container from the dollar store to store my rose water in.  It feels incredibly refreshing when I spritz it on my cleansed face in the morning and at night. I absolutely love the smell as well, I find it super soothing. Rosewater Can be use several times throughout the day, as part of a beauty regimen .  I use it on bare skin before makeup, as a refresher throughout the day and as a toner at night applied with a cotton swab.
