Reviva Labs Rosewater Facial Spray

Since reviewing the Reviva Labs Makeup Primer in January, Reviva Labs has been very generous in allowing me to try more of their products! I chose to try their Rosewater Facial Spray--I've never tried any type of facial spray before so I was really looking forward to testing it out! I've been using it for a month now and it is definitely another fantastic product!
If you'd like some background on Reviva Labs do make sure to check out my last post HERE!

It's a pretty huge bottle. I've been using it almost everyday (sometimes multiple times a day) and it looks like I've hardly made a dent! One thing I noticed is that it says it is "for normal to dry skin." My skin is usually combination/oily: I get very oily in the t-zone but with the dryer weather the last few months my cheeks have been lacking in moisture. I think this product would be great for ANY skin type, even oily. It didn't make my skin feel or look oily at all despite adding more moisture to the skin. I noticed that whenever I used the spray, my tzone actually was less oily than usual!

I love love love that it is paraben free and that it contains lots of vitamins and herbs that are good for your skin. Rosewater is known for having soothing, healing, and even antibacterial benefits--many use it to improve skin tone (such as redness, soften wrinkles, or help even skin tone) and it can be used on sensitive skin types!

The Reviva Labs Rosewater Spray says you can use it to:
-Refresh Skin and Set Makeup
-Spray Away Perspiration
-Moisturize Skin and Hair in Dry Weather
-Use as a Sensitive-Skin Tonic

Here's the ingredients and directions.
I've found myself using it multiple times throughout a single day. Firstly I've been using it to set makeup. I know many swear by Mac Fix+ and Urban Decay Setting Sprays to set their makeup after it's all done but I haven't tried those products so I can't compare, sorry! I've been using it specifically for setting my mineral makeup. I really like my Laura Mercier loose mineral foundation--I think it gives wonderful coverage and is easy to apply. Unfortunately, I felt like it didn't always blends flawlessly into my skin and would cling to any flaky skin--therefore I didn't use it as much as my other foundations and it would unfortunately get neglected. After applying the Laura Mercier foundation, I gave my face a few sprays of the Rosewater Spray and I was completely shocked. The foundation literally melted into my skin! I couldn't believe it. My skin looked fresh and dewy and the "cakey" look was completely gone. I use my mineral foundation all the time now because of this spray! I use it to set my other foundations (like my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer) however it doesn't have as dramatic of an impact--it seems like it was MADE to set powder or mineral foundations.
I also use it to refresh my skin throughout the day. If I put makeup on in the morning, I can spray it on at night and I don't feel like I need to redo my makeup--I feel refreshed and it makes my skin glow! It takes away the oiliness in my tzone yet makes my skin feel supple and moisturized. The spray is also wonderfully refreshing if i feel tired or dehydrated-- I especially love using it after workouts. After I get home from the gym the spray feels soooo nice and soothing! Really I just spray it whenever I feel like it just for fun because it smells so nice and makes my skin feel so soft! You can also use the spray before your moisturizer so you can really let the rosewater sink into your skin. I've noticed that any dry, flaky skin (especially from blemishes!) seems to lessen when I do this. I mostly prefer to use the spray to set my makeup or refresh my skin throughout the day though.

I'm also excited to report that the spray (thankfully) does not break my skin out at all!! That is always such a huge concern for me whenever I try new products. On the contrary, my skin feels tremendously soft and looks healthier.

I know this review is pretty long but I really can't say enough good things about this spray. It makes my skin feel incredibly soft and smooth and it doesn't make me look greasy. The one major con to the product that I can foresee with some people is the rose scent. I personally love it and find the light rose scent lovely--not overwhelming at all to me. It lingers for a little while after applying but soon dissipates. However, not all noses are the same! If you are really not a fan of rose scents, it could be a distracting detail. You may be able to look past it though since the scent does not stay for long. Lastly, if you are a much oilier skin type, you may do better trying their Lindenflower toner (see HERE) which I believe it targeted towards normal to oily skin. I'm quite curious to try this as my skin usually leans towards the oily side--let me know in the comments if you have!

The Reviva Labs Rosewater Spray retails for $9--amazing price for such a large bottle! You can buy it HERE from Reviva Labs. I've also seen Reviva Labs products at my nearby Ulta so you could possibly find it there as well.
Also, make sure to check out the Reviva Labs Facebook Page and Twitter. They always update with information about their products, reviews, and also link to giveaways for their products too. Andddd thanks again to Reviva Labs for giving me the opportunity to try yet another wonderful product!! Thank you for being so generous and allowing me to give my complete honest opinion on the products.


What do you think about the Reviva Labs Rosewater Spray?? Do you use anything to set your makeup or refresh you skin in the middle of the day!?
