Avon Naturals Radiance Rose Water


I've been battling a serious cold for the last few days and I must say that each cold is a significant setback for the state of my skin. It either goes into an oily overdrive (resulting with clogged pores) or I get some unpleasant dry patches which are stung by most creams I try to treat them with. Luckily for me, this one isn't such a tough case and I've managed to keep things mostly under control with some help of a creamy cleanser (Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser), my trusty Bocassy Hydrating Night Cream (still the best night cream queen) and – this humble rose water.

Avon Naturals Radiance Rose Water is marketed as a cleanser but I don't think of it as one. It's more of a gentle toner and as such, I really like it! I've mentioned earlier that I'm mostly fond of basic face toners such as the Avene Eau Thermal water whilst some elaborate and popular ones haven't really impressed me (Caudalie Beauty Elixir, I'm looking at you!). Rose water is my winter toner of choice for many years and whilst I usually purchase the Alverde Wild Rose Toner during the colder months, I am pretty pleased with this lightweight version.

Considering this is a part of the Naturals range, you know that you're dealing with a rather affordable product. Packaging is simple and looks gentle which goes nicely with the rose theme. To me, this rose water toner smells of Turkish Delight – a sweeter version of a rose scent which isn't overpowering and evaporates after use but do have in mind that it is scented. 

What I like about it is the fact it doesn't leave a sticky or tacky residue – it brings back moisture into the skin (even if it is for a short while) but nothing gets left on top of the skin. It's a great (but not  a necessary) step after washing/makeup removal and before a facial moisturizer/ serum/ oil. 

Have you used rose water in general? I'm really curious about your experience in conjunction with your skin type.

  • Posljednjih dana me mucila prilicno naporna pehlada i koliko sam primjetila, svaka prehlada sa sobom donosi probleme sa kozom. Moja ce ili postati masna (uz pratece probleme zacepljenih pora) ili cu biti pocascena suhom, perutavom kozom koja je narocito nezgodna posto me vecina krema iz preparativnog arsenala pecka u ovom periodu. Srecom po mene, ova prehlada nije bila nemilosrdna i vecinu problema sam stavila pod kontrolu uz pomoc kremaste umivalice (Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser), potom Bocassy Hydrating Night Cream kojoj sam vjerna (jos uvijek je smatram najboljom nocnom kremom) ali i uz pomoc ove skromne ruzine vodice.
  • Avon Naturals Radiance Rose Water je ruzina vodica koja je predstavljena kao cistac ali ja je tako ne dozivljavam. Vise mi spada u skupinu tonera/tonika za lice i u tu svrhu je odlicna! Nekada sam ranije spominjala kako sam sklonija jednostavnim tonerima poput obicne Avene termalne vodice dok me neke sofisticirane varijante tonera nisu impresionirale (mislim na tebe Caudalie Beauty Elixir!). Ruzina vodica je obicno ono sto sebi nabavljam svake zime. Inace kupujem Alverde Wild Rose Toner ali sam prilicno zadovoljna i ovom nesto laganijom varijantom.
  • Uzimajuci u obzir da je ovo dio Naturals linije proizvoda iz Avona, znate na prvu da je ovo proizvod pristupacne cijene. Ne nalazi se u svakom katalogu ali mislim da kosta cca 3KM. Pakovanje je jednostavno, njezno i lijepo se uklapa u tematiku ruzicastih ruza. Rekla bih da ovaj tonik sa ruzinom vodicom mirise na rahat lokume – znaci na sladju, zasecerenu notu ruze. Ovaj miris nije intenzivan i isparava nakon sto natopljenom blaznicom predjem preko koze. Kome je relevantno, neka ima na umu da je ovaj toner parfimiran. 
  • Ono sto mi se dopada jeste sto nakon upotrebe tonera na kozi ne ostaje sloj koji je ljepljiv vec koza samo zadrzava svjezinu a cak dobija (makar kratkotrajno) i na hidrataciji. Bitno je da nema ostatka tonera nakon upotrebe i koza nije ljepljiva. Licno smatram da je toner dobar (ali ne i neophodan) dodatni korak u njezi koze koji ubacujem nakon ciscenja/uklanjanja sminke i prije nanosenja kreme/ ulja/ seruma za lice.
  • Da li ste nekada koristile ruzinu vodicu? Dosta sam znatizeljna kakva su vasa iskustva sa njom u odnosu na tip koze koji imate.

      I ja volim miris ruze ali ne bas u svim proizvodima – tonik mi je tu bas taman, miris osjetim ali se ne zadrzava predugo 🙂
