My personal account:
It is really hard to overuse rose water. I use this in the am and pm. What I like most is the instant gratification. Once that rose water spritz hits I feel refreshed. Be warned, it does give me an instant glow. It makes my skin feel soft after applying. Pro tip (Do people still say this?): I also use this as an all over body toner, especially for my neck and décolletage areas. I always follow up with my Vitamin C Serum.
