One thing my love has been doing lately to make my pregnancy a bit more enjoyable is spoiling me with gifts every so often. (I’m a lucky girl, aren’t I?) He typically stays away from buying me cosmetics or skincare items since he usually has no idea what he’s buying, and instead opts for the go-to Sephora or Ulta gift card. This last gift, however, he really surprised me.
After scouring the awesome website Canopy.com trying to find unique gifts for me, he stumbled across something called Rose Water Toner. He did his research, read a couple of reviews and decided to pull the trigger. He had no idea if I would like it, or if I would even need it, but lucky for him, I love this stuff.
So what is Rose Water, you ask? Rose Water is a popular ingredient in many skin care items, but the stuff he got me was called Rose Water by Poppy Austin and this stuff is 100% pure distilled, organic, and unrefined Moroccan Rose Water that just so happens to be rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C and full of natural anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory qualities.
What are the claims? Well, the Amazon.com listing says this stuff will provide instant hydration and rejuvenate dull skin to give a vibrant, glowing, more youthful complexion. The Rose Water is a lightweight formula that works to restore skin’s natural pH balance, absorb excess oils (but won’t dry your skin out), soothes inflammation, treats pimples and blackheads, and unclog and tighten large pores.
Within the first week of using this stuff, I found these claims to be 100% true. One thing my pregnancy has given me is chin acne that is an absolute pain-in-my-ass. With that glorious chin acne has come serious redness and inflammation, but within 2 days of using this stuff, the inflammation had calmed and the redness was almost completely gone.
So, if you’re a fan of natural, organic facial products, I have to recommend Poppy Austin’s Rose Water. Simply apply a small amount to a cotton ball or pad and gently glide over your face and neck after cleansing. The smell is glorious, and your skin will instantly feel hydrated and you’ll have a dewy, youthful glow in no time.
So, kudos to the love of my life for getting me a lovely gift! Have any questions about this product? Let me know in the comment section below!
