Fantastic Timeless Calming

Love Santa Maria Novella rose water - generally I use it as a facial toner. I also highly recommend it for anyone who has a hospital stay - for me it was the absolute best thing to use in hospital as a spritz to feel fresh in when it was difficult to have a proper wash in a hospital bed, and the gentle rose fragrance helped me feel relaxed and calm in a stressful situation and unfamiliar environment. Fantastic and timeless product - makes a great gift too.

Freschissima e profumatissima, è un prodotto che ho adorato dal primo utilizzo

Love it!

This is an essential product for my skincare routine after using the cleansing milk. It removes any last bits of waterproof makeup that the cleansing milk missed (which isn’t much as this product does a wonderful job of cleansing!) as well as making your skin look refreshed and glowing. Perfect to use just before your moisturiser (preferably the Idralia cream as this is also a wonderful product).

A classic

I have been using this Rose water for the past ten years, ever since I discovered it in Florence. I use it as a toner in my skin care routine. Once it was thought to protect against the plague, now it simply adds a touch of luxury. The smell is also gorgeously fresh and luxurious. A really special product.
