For skincare Friday I am reviewing a new spray I have been trying out. The Lush Eau Roma Water is a toner/ face spray that I have been using on a regular basis for the past few months to see how much I’d like it. My favorite face spray has been The Body Shop’s Vitamin C face spritz, but I felt it was time to try something else for a change. Lush skincare can be quite hit or miss for me. The levels of fragrance in Lush products is out of this world and at times Lush products have not worked very well on my dry/ dehydrated, sensitive skin. However, other products have worked for me quite well and the Angels on Bare Skin cleanser has been a longstanding staple in my skincare routine. Let’s see if this makes the cut.
Skincare review: Lush Eau Roma Water Toner Water
The product you see in this review is for the smaller 100 ml product. This also comes in a 250 ml bottle at double the price point. The small version retails for €8 and the bigger version is €16. That’s a pretty good price point and I feel it is slightly cheaper than the Body Shop one I love. When it comes to a face spray I don’t have that many demands: I use it mainly to hydrate my face before putting on my morning skincare routine. I feel it helps the products to sink in and my skin feels much better when I use one. Can you use plain water with glycerin? Yes. You don’t have to spend this kind of money on a face spray for sure.
What does this product have to offer?
Let’s look at what this product is supposed to do. This is a multi-use product that can be sprayed directly onto the face, but they say you can also put it on a cotton round and use it as a cleanser to take off the remnants of your makeup. So in a way this can be used in the place of a micellar water. I personally don’t like this for taking off makeup. It can be used for a refresh as well, but I feel this is too wet for that. This toner is part of the produts aimed at sensitive skin and is recommended to be used with Angels on Bare skin for calm, hydrated skin. It contains lavender and rose water. This is the full ingredient list:
Lavender Water, Rose Water, *Citronellol, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Methylparaben
What is my experience using this product?
So I was sure this would not work well on my skin. Much of what I have tried lately from Lush in terms of skincare hasn’t worked out for me. But this? This is amazing. It hydrates my skin, while also making it feel soft and works well under my other skincare products. It just makes my skin feel great and prepped for more skincare to go on top. It is very wet and the spritzer on it is nice. For once, this isn’t so heavily fragranced that I find it overpowdering. So all in all this has been a great new addition to my skincare routine and I already bought myself a backup. The only problem with this: you go through it quite quickly. But I have that issue with all of the face sprays I have ever tried.
My final thoughts
The Lush Eau Roma Water is one that has become an unexpected favorite. The ingredients list isn’t outrageous, though I think if your skin doesn’t like essential oils you may not love this product. My skin usually fares really well on things like rose water (I have used some in the past and loved it), so for me this has been a very successful purchase. I will continue to use it, on and off and just alternate between this and the The Body Shop Vitamin C one.
Would I recommend the Lush Eau Roma Toner Water?
Yes and no. Lush skincare isn’t for everyone and anyone who is familiar with skincare essentials will tell you that their ingredients aren’t always the best for you. So depending on what kind of sensitivities you have this may actually not be great for you. My skin has been loving this stuff and I am very happy with it, but definitely do a patch test before you use this.
