Rose water is an integral part of my skincare routine. I use it as a toner when my skin is irritated or has active acne, and also as a refreshing mist throughout the day. I am currently using the Vya Naturals Rose Luxury Toner for this purpose, and today I will be reviewing this product for you.
The Vya Naturals Rose Luxury Toner is pure steam distilled rose water that contains no alcohol or additives. It comes in a plastic bottle with a spray nozzle and is available in packs of 50ml and 100ml. The nozzle provides a fine mist of rose water and the leakproof packaging is travel-friendly too.
Since this is pure rose water, it is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It provides a boost of freshness to the skin while soothing it and calming down any redness or irritation. Pure rose water also helps with maintaining the pH balance of the skin. It can be used for minimizing the pores, and also as a liquid base for face packs.
A 50ml bottle of the toner is priced at INR 225, which is fairly reasonable for pure steam distilled rose water. Rose water is one of the first skincare products that I ever used and the Vya Naturals Rose Luxury Toner brings back those nostalgic memories for me. This is one product that everybody should stock up on because you cannot go wrong with something so unadulterated and natural.
The Summer Gods are glaring down upon us and my skin keeps begging for something refreshing. Since I adore the Rose Water Face Mist from Greenberry Organics so much, I decided to try out their Fresh Cucumber Mint Toner to keep me cool in the heat. Read on to find out how I feel about this product.
This refreshing toner is a green mist with a refreshing mint scent (which I love but those with a sensitive nose may find a little bothersome). Upon spraying on the face, it has a cooling, tingly, minty sensation on the skin which lasts for at least 15 minutes. This product is an excellent toner that leaves my pores feeling tighter and it has also reduced the greasiness of my skin, thereby making it perfect for those with oily skin who are suffering in the heat and humidity of the Indian summer. Also, my skin has been behaving quite well with hardly any breakouts since I started using this product. While this is definitely a combined result of all the skincare products that I use, the oil controlling properties of this toner have definitely helped in preventing breakouts.
The formula contains a bunch of skin-loving ingredients such as Rose Water, Aloe Vera, Cucumber extracts and Witch Hazel extracts. The bottle is pretty sturdy, leak proof and travel-friendly while the spray comes out in the form of a fine mist that is perfect for the even coverage of the skin. This product claims to be a toner and makeup remover combined in one and while I wouldn’t use it on its own to remove my makeup, it definitely helps in getting rid of the residual makeup left on my skin after cleansing.
To sum it up, this toner is really good for those with open pores and acne-prone, oily skin. It will help to dry out existing breakouts and will control oil production to prevent future breakouts while being extremely cooling on the skin. The product is priced at INR 400 for a 100ml bottle but is usually available on Amazon at around INR 250, which is a great price for the quality and quantity of the toner. A great buy for the summers in my opinion!
Greenberry Organics is a skincare brand that I have absolute faith in. Their face masks have drastically improved the texture of my skin over the past few months and have reduced my acne too. This is why I was super excited when the brand sent me a few of their products to try out some days ago. Be prepared for an overdose of Greenberry Organics products for the next few days because I can’t stop raving about all the items they sent me! Today, I will be talking about their Pure Rose Water Face Mist and Toner.
You all must be aware of the antiseptic and antibacterial properties of rose water. I am sure that you also know that pure rose water helps in hydrating and soothing the skin and can be incorporated as a toner or a face mist in the daily skincare routine. So what is so unique about this particular rose water that makes it stand out from the rest? One whiff of this product and your question will be answered. As soon as you spritz this facial mist on your face, you will feel like you have been drenched by the concentrated nectar of a hundred roses. The luxurious and heavenly fragrance of crushed rose petals is evidence of the fact that this product is extremely pure and unadulterated. The reason why this toner has the concentrated goodness of rose petals is that this rose water has been extracted by the method of steam distillation. This means that fresh rose petals have been carefully distilled to create this product so as to retain all their benefits and natural juices. Most rose waters available in the market do not use this technique and instead simply mix rose oil with water. This is why other brands do not contain the fresh and saturated juices of the rose petals and are therefore not as beneficial for the skin.
The Greenberry Organics Pure Rose Water contains steam distilled pure and concentrated organic rose water and nothing else. With just one potent ingredient, this product is truly nature in a bottle. Not only does the scent of roses linger on the skin for hours, the skin feels hydrated throughout the day if you use this product before heading out. The spray nozzle releases a fine mist that evenly covers the face. You can spray this product on freshly cleansed skin or even over makeup to get rid of cakiness and to make your foundation look more natural and glowy. You can use it to freshen up your face throughout the day whenever your skin feels tired and can also use it as a toner after washing your face. I have also noticed that this rose water is slightly sticky in texture on the skin – this does not cause any discomfort and in fact, helps my makeup stay on longer if I use this mist prior to applying foundation on my skin. I think that this stickiness is due to the natural sweetness of rose extracts and helps seal the moisture in place as well.
This is honestly the best rose water I have tried till date and makes every other rose water I have previously used pale in comparison. This rose water is free of preservatives, alcohol, and colorants and is a cruelty free and vegan product. I feel that the attention the brand has paid to create a product that is as close to nature as possible is truly commendable. The price point of INR 575 for 100ml of product seems justified to me considering the quality of the rose water and the sturdiness of the packaging which is also reusable. However, Greenberry Organics products often go on sale on Amazon and you can grab this facial mist at an even more affordable price. Overall, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the product, which is very rare for me. 5 stars to this facial mist and kudos to Greenberry Organics for creating yet another wonderful product.
Rose water has been known as an excellent toner since time immemorial. Add to it the cooling freshness of mint and you have the perfect concoction for your skin for the summer. The Natural Bath & Body Rose & Mint Facial Water combines these two ingredients to produce a fragrant and rejuvenating facial mist cum toner. I got a sample size from Smytten which does not have a spray so I have been using it only as a toner, but the full sized product comes with a spray for easy spritzing throughout the day.
This product first emanates the soothing scent of roses when applied to the skin, then the zesty fragrance of mint kicks in. This facial water is paraben and sulfate free which makes it all the better for the skin. The peppermint oil helps to calm down any redness or itchiness while the rose extracts gently nourish the skin and provide a natural glow with regular usage.
This facial mist is priced at INR 350 for 100ml of the product, which is a little steep, but if you do not have the time to stir up your own skin care products at home and want an option that is easy to throw into the hand bag then you may consider trying out the product. If you have sensitive skin that does not agree with chemicals then this is one item that you must include in your skincare regime.

If you like the scent of roses then you must purchase the Fab India Rose Geranium Face and Body Gel Scrub. This gel scrub literally smells divine and reminds me of Gulkand, which is a sweet preserve of rose petals used in some Indian desserts. I haven’t purchased a lot of skin care from Fab India but this is one product that definitely deserves a mention on the blog.
The scrub has the consistency of a soft gel with walnut granules embedded in it. These particles are gritty enough to remove dead skin from the face and body yet mild enough to be suitable for sensitive skin. A lot of “mild” scrubs in the market have disappointed me by their non-existent exfoliating action but this scrub is everything I expect from a gentle scrub. It also contains rose essence and some nourishing oils that leave the skin soft and supple after every use.
100ml of this product is priced at INR 390 on the Fabindia website. A little expensive, but you only need a tiny bit of the product each time and the luxurious feel this scrub provides makes it worth the price. The only thing that could make this scrub even better would be a tube instead of a jar for the packaging. Other than that, if you are on the hunt for a gentle but effective scrub then this one will definitely get the job done.
