Farmgirl beauty secret #18: Rosewater.


This multi-purpose beauty product is available everywhere and it’s a must-have for every beauty arsenal.

Transform cakey foundation and powder into makeup that looks like second skin. Lightly mist face with Rosewater, let it dry for 5 seconds. Cover and lightly touch face with a sheet of tissue for 2-3 seconds to redistribute and set makeup.

For a fresh, glowy décolleté that lasts: mist Rosewater on neck, chest & shoulders and follow with a light application of coconut oil. Try this on your legs too!

Dull, lifeless hair? Spritz locks with rose water (avoid the roots) to revive hair.

Dry mouth and bad breath? Rosewater quickly doubles as a breath cleanser when you’re in a pinch. The subtly floral scent does wonders at counteracting bad breath.

Rosewater is also extremely gentle on skin, keep a small bottle of it in your purse or at the office and use as a refreshing facial mist, breath freshener and aromatherapy!

It's one of my must-haves! I have several bottles scattered around my room. It's a great toner as well :D

Oh wow, this sounds amazing! I read someone else's blog where they said that they used in instead of MAC fix+, and they got it at target. I looked for it at target though, and couldn't find it :/

I definatly want some though, with all of the amazing uses that it has! Great post!

I think I actually have a recipe for this lying around somewhere!
It's a great toner as well? Wow! At the moment I use witch hazel as a toner, I like it, but I always wanna try new things :P

Hi ladies!

Between witch hazel and rosewater, I definitely prefer rosewater as a toner. Witch hazel contains a large amount of natural alcohol, which can be drying for some and upset the pH balance. Rosewater is very balancing and hydrating to the skin, you'll love it!

I can definitely see this as a natural sub for MAC Fix+ :D Some people make a substitute by mixing water with glycerin. I don't feel comfortable about that because it isn't properly perserved and glycerin can pull water out of your skin if you live in a very dry climate.

Let me know how you like the rosewater, ladies!

I love using rosewater. Rosewater has a long tradition of use in India and we get some really amazing products here - one of them has essential oils of sandalwood, lavender, carrot seed and witch hazel added to rosewater.

It is great for cooling the face in the hot humid weather here :D

Hi Tanveer,

Isn't it great? I would love to try rosewater w/ sandalwood oil added :D I've heard great things about sandalwood for the skin.
