  • Alteya Organics 100% Pure Bulgarian Rose Water Review

    11.19.2018

    Alteya Organics 100% Pure Bulgarian Rose Water

    A recent purchase got me falling in love all over again with roses. While I was looking for ways to de-stress and soothe my sensitive skin from the sun-again-rain-again weather of Kuala Lumpur, I found myself addicted to scavenging Shopee for hidden gems. It's then I found this 100% Pure Bulgarian Rose Water from Alteya Organics for just RM59 (np RM118) made from their family rose farm in the heart of the Bulgarian Rose Valley (Europe).

    The packaging says:
    "Alteya's 100% pure, award-winning, steam-distilled rose water is made of fresh, organic Rosa Damascena blossoms - one of the most valuable and fragrant oil-bearing roses"

    I don't think I can find this kind of price anywhere else for a rose water distill from organic damask roses. It would be quite pricey in the market. Various brands sell rose water mist but I don't think I've seen a 100% pure organic rose water. This one has zero alcohol, preservatives, no added ingredients or synthetic fragrances/perfumes. We're talking about really just pure rose water here.

    The benefits: (suitable for all skin types)
    Rosewater not only smells lovely, but it also has many beauty benefits! You can use it as a:
    • toner to tone and balance the skin
    • face mist to hydrate & moisturize your skin
    • cleans & refreshes the skin and hair
    • heals acne & eczema 
    • gentle astringent to tighten your pores
    • rejuvenates, uplifting, energizing
    • protects the skin from against bacterial infections
    • lightens marks, blemishes & skin tone (high natural Vitamin C)
    • anti-inflammatory to calms & soothes irritated skin 
    • food & beverage flavor enhancer (yeap!)
    • anti-oxidant to fight against free radicals (anti-aging)

    Alteya - Distills premium organic rose and waters using generations-old recipes. With proprietary steam-distillation method that marries 400 years of tradition with science, Alteya Organics is able to extract rose essences that are dermatology grade and retain the therapeutic properties and synergy of the plants. 

    A skincare grade product. It's made using traditional steam distillation process where the rose oil is carefully retained in the rose hydrosol (water) to ensure maximum beauty benefit. Each 200ml bottle contains up to 35,000 to 40,000 rose petals, the highest in the market. Certified organic by USDA.

    (aromatherapy)

    mist yourself with rose water / make a rose water mask
    clear your mind & enjoy the lovely aromatherapy
    (and beautiful room with roses)

    There are many ways to use rose water, I've tried misting my hair, body, and face with it. I even use it as a mask in the office by spraying on a cotton pad and putting it on my face. Here's what I gather from the page on the various ways you can use rose water. Since it's also pure rose water, it's safe to be digested too. 

    HOW TO USE ROSE WATER?
    Skincare/Haircare
    Cleansing, hydrating, and toning for all skin and hair types – a perfect finish for your daily cleansing and refreshing routine.
    • Soak a cotton pad with rose water and smooth over the entire face and neck.
    • Saturate a towel, warm up and apply to face to detoxify and clarify skin, and unclog pores.
    • Spray the gentle rose mist all over your body for instant moisture and freshness. Rejuvenates dull skin and calms after prolonged sun exposure.
    • Provides essential nutrients to hair and if used daily, significantly improves shine and natural luster. Spray daily.

    - Perfect for all homemade cosmetics.
    - Use this aromatic mist to soften and hydrate your skin and hair and indulge in the gentle rose aroma.

    Setting Spray
    Set your makeup with rosewater to give you a natural glow and to prevent cakiness.

    Makeup Remover
    Mix rose water with jojoba or argan oil to make a natural and gentle makeup remover.

    Depuff Your Eyes
    Soak cotton pads in rosewater and place over eyes. This will cool your tired, puffy eyes down and hydrate the area as well.

    Aromatherapy
    This gentle form of aromatherapy is suitable for sensitive people, pregnant women, and kids. The rejuvenating fragrance uplifts the spirits and harmonizes the mind. It has toning and restoring effect and enhances romance. Use as a bathtub supplement for stress relief or spray your room, bed sheets, and clothing.

    Cooking
    Natural flavor-enhancement for foods and beverages. Add it to your exotic deserts, beverages, and cocktails. Great for flavoring ice creams and teas.

    very convenient, just take off the cap & spray
    (the texture if you're curious is just water, clear water)

    made from Switzerland Miron glass bottle

    The product comes in a box which I have discarded away but the bottle? It is heavy! Made from Switzerland Miron Violet Glass to protect the natural rose essence from sunlight to preserve and stimulate the bioenergy found naturally in the rosewater. I read that this is important since this is a paraben free product and that it's a natural distillate rose essence. 

    the rose fragrance is traditionally used to calm & uplift
    it's also said to help with depression

    My Review:
    I love love love this rosewater spray. It has so many beauty benefits for our body, hair and skin - even as a flavoring agent or to make homemade skincare with. More importantly, it's free from chemicals so it's safe for my skin. Since roses are one of my favorite flowers, this was a match made in heaven. The scent is sweet, smells like the real thing. Some people will find that off-putting because they're used to rose scents manufactured in the beauty market (artificially, chemically).

    I use this every day to freshen and hydrate my face. It helps to soften my skin too (bonus points). For the promotional price that I'm paying now, I want to stock up a few more bottles + Lavender Water (for sleeping?).

    You can purchase this from the seller skinsocietymy on shopee (claim for the discount vouchers & free shipping from shopee!) and Qoo10. They have many other products too apart from this range (yes not just rosewater, there's rose cleanser, moisturizer, etc). I saw Hyaluronic Acid Ampoules, Pure Paw Paw ointment from Australia, Australia Goat Soap for Eczema, Buy 1 Free 1 shoe spray & foot odor control products too. Quite interesting to explore!
