Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz Review

Buying on a whim is not the way of a beauty blogger. Most of us research products, searching for swatches and reviews, before parting with our cash. I bought this Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz on a whim, as it was half price in Boots. I've never really used toner before, but this was an attempt to look after my skin more.

I used this as part of my daily face care routine. I used my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, then spritzed this Rosewater Toning product and finally used my La Roche-Posay Effaclar M to moisturise.
It has a good spray from the pump, it's a light cooling mist that is applied to just cleansed skin. It's quiet refreshing and smells nice but this did nothing to help my skin, I might as well of not used it. 

I even think this spray caused a series of cystic spots under my skin, which since I have stopped using this, have disappeared.

Fine mist
Cooling Effect

Caused cystic spots
Didn't improve my skin or 'tone'

I think beauty bloggers should use with caution, give it 2-3 weeks trial and error. My skin is acne prone, an ingredient in this could have triggered the spots. I think this would be more suited to 'normal' skin.

Have you tried this toner?

  1. Ahh no! Sorry to hear this didn't work for you, I love using this toner! I do have normal skin though, so that must be why it works for me. I really only use it as a cooling spritz when it's warm though! xx

  2. such a shame to hear it wasn't good for your skin! :( i've used so many spritz like these before - but not this one - and they often do great things for my skin.. maybe you should keep on the hunt and i'm sure soon you'll find something that works for you!

  3. I love Botanics packaging but it ends there really. I love the concept of the products but I never find that they have amazing results xx

  4. I've never tried anything from the Botanics range but tbh I've heard good and bad things.. Not sure I want to try anything! x
