During the long, heady summer’s days, there’s nothing we like more here in the NaturalCures office than a quick pick-me-up. And we’re not talking a coffee or a naughty sugary snack. What we are talking about is a refreshing spray of a cooling floral mist – it’s surprising how a cold blast of water on your face mid-way through the day can really perk you up and boost your productivity.
So when Primavera - a luxury skin care brand – sent us its Organic Rose Water to try, we were eager to give it a go during our afternoon slump.
This light, water-like 100% natural toner can be used on bare skin or under or over make-up to restore pH balance and revive hydration.
To use, simply swipe over the skin with a cotton pad – or do like we do, hold a few inches from your face, close your eyes and spray.
The first thing we noticed about this delicious-smelling toner was how much it reminded us of Turkish Delight. It is, after all, rose scented. And something about its fragrance just made it feel really luxurious; this certainly isn’t a product to be used liberally.
Aiming to ‘sooth the senses’ and ‘gently cool and tone the skin’, the product’s packaging even states that it helps stimulate blood circulation – a winner in our book here at NaturalCures.
The only downside to the product for us, though, was that while there’s no expense spared with the packaging -it comes in a beautiful green glass bottle, as pictured above – it doesn’t prove quite so practical when chucking in your purse for a day out. What we do here, then, is simply decant it into a smaller, plastic bottle for a quick mist on the go.
