As I write this post, I'm sat in my office with the central heating turned up once again after the weather has taken a turn for the worse. With this in mind, you may find it odd that today's review is of a facial spritzer, often associated with giving a hit of refreshment in the summer months.
However, I like to keep a facial spritzer on my desk year round as I find that reaching for it throughout the day helps to keep my skin hydrated. I've recently been trialling the certified organic Bulgarian Rosewater facial spritzer from Alteya Organics, an award-winning brand whose products are based on Bulgarian Rose, grown on the company's own organic rose farm.
The packaging of Alteya Organics Bulgarian Rosewater Spray isn't the most luxurious and I'm not sure that I'd have picked it out from a shop shelf had it not been sent to me for review purposes. It's a plastic bottle presented in a box with an illustration and pink font reiterating the key ingredient of rose. Admittedly, the fact that the 100ml bottle is plastic means that it is convenient for carrying in a handbag whilst also being travel friendly. I also liked that the bottle is transparent, enabling me to see how much product remained.
The spray was easy to control and delivered a relatively fine mist. I liked that it could be used over makeup. The distinctive, delicate sweet rose scent won't be to everyone's liking but personally, I didn't find it offensive.
Alteya Organics claim that the spray is rejuvenating, uplifting & energising and has softening & moisturising benefits. As a facial spritzer, it's inherently refreshing but I can't say that I noticed any softening benefits. Having said that, I did find it to be hydrating.
Alteya Organics Bulgarian Rosewater Spray isn't my favourite out of the facial spritzers I've tried but at £6.95 for 100ml, it's worth checking out if you're seeking a wallet friendly yet good quality option.
