6 Ways to Use Rose Water Spray in Your Beauty Routine
Roses aren’t only worthwhile when they’re packed into beautiful bouquets. They’re also relevant to your beauty routine. If you keep abreast of the beauty industry, you may already be aware of the rising popularity of rose water in beauty products, especially face mists and sprays. Part of the appeal of a rose water spray—like the Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water—is no doubt the lovely floral fragrance, but beyond that the demand for rose water sprays can be chalked up to their ability to be inserted into your beauty routine in a variety of ways. A rose water spray can play an important role in both your skin care and makeup routines, aiding in tasks that range from hydration the skin to setting makeup in place. We’re sharing six ways to use rose water spray in your beauty routine.
1. Give Your Complexion a Wake-Up Call
Do you ever have trouble waking up in the morning? If so, your usual reaction might be to reach for a steaming cup of coffee, but a caffeine kick isn’t the only option out there to boost your energy. You can wake up your complexion with a rose water spray. Spritzing your skin with a refreshing (and beautifully scented) facial mist is a modern take on splashing cold water on your face to “wake up,” only it’s way more relaxing.
2. Lock in Moisture
One of our favorite skin care tips of all time comes from the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), which recommends applying a moisturizer while your skin is still slightly damp from washing. That simple trick helps to trap more moisture on your skin. But if you’re a fan of no-rinse cleansers, like micellar waters, you might find the trick less than convenient. In that case, you have another option. Rather than go and wet your face in the sink, mist with the Garnier SkinActive Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water. The hydrating formula will help lock in moisture in the same fashion, just apply your moisturizer straight away after spraying.
3. Prep Your Makeup Sponge
If you’ve tried makeup blending sponges a time or two, only to be left unimpressed, the problem may be with how you prep the sponges. While they should get the job done when they’re dry, they often work to their best ability when damp. To test this trick you can try spraying the makeup blender with a rose water spray. Once your makeup sponge is slightly damp, use it to apply and blend cream and liquid products into your skin with ease.

4. Soften the Look of Your Makeup
Is face powder leaving your skin looking cakey? Thankfully, the solution isn’t to start over from scratch. You can soften your makeup and reduce the dreaded cakey effect with a few spritzes of rose water spray.
Editor’s tip: If you still aren’t happy with how your makeup looks, think back to tip #3. Press a blending sponge that’s damp with rose water spray against areas of makeup buildup to lift away excess product and leave behind a smoother-looking finish.
5. Refresh Throughout the Day
We typically think of skin care steps as something best accomplished at home, but rose water spray changes all that. Whether your face needs to be soothed, hydrated, or refreshed, rose water spray has you covered—wherever you are. Keep a bottle of the Garnier rose water mist in your bag or on your desk, and when your skin needs a boost of refreshment, have a quick misting session.
6. Round Out Your Routine
It doesn’t matter if it’s morning or night, you can always end your skin care routine with rose water spray. After smoothing on serums, oils, and moisturizers (or whatever else suits your fancy), give your skin a final spritz of hydration.
