A cleansing, refreshing toner for your morning & night beauty rituals or for when you need to skip the shower heading to dinner or an event straight from work.
ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS / Rose water doesn´t just smell heavenly but it has also a lot of benefits for your skin: It is calming and soothing, due to its anti-inflammatory and cooling properties. Rose water is a potent antioxidant that is used in several anti-aging products to help protect your skin from harmful free radicals. It softens and hydrates your skin and helps maintain the pH balance and controls excess oil. Witch hazel acts as an astringent to help shrink your pores, soothe your skin and reduce inflammation.
Geranium essential oil is balancing for the skin, anti-bacterial and astringent. It helps to eliminate dead cells and to promote the regeneration of newer, healthier skin. Its astringent property helps tighten the skin and to diminish the appearance of the symptoms of aging. The scent of geranium can also reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, sadness, fatigue, and tension, enhance concentration, improve cognitive function, and balance the emotions as well as the hormones. Tea Tree essential oil is antibacterial and astringent. Commonly used for treating acne because of its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It helps to calm redness, swelling, inflammation, and helps to prevent and reduce acne scars, leaving your skin smooth and clear.
