It’s a usual sunny day and I can’t help but blog. Today my review will be on Dabur Gulabari Premium Gulab Jal. It is used for many purposes like toning, mixing it in face packs and as a face freshener. I use it in my CTM routine for toning. Many girls use it even today as Dabur is an old and established company. I’ll tell you how was my experience…
Price: Rs. 40 for 120ml
Ingredients: Aqua, Fragrance (Rooh Gulab), Rose Oil, Propylene Glycol, Methyl Parabens, Bronopol.
How to use Rose Water:
• Use with cotton daily for cleansed, glowing skin.
• Use with face pack for extra radiance.
• Use with Glycerin for soft glowing skin.
It comes in a plastic bottle which is transparent with a pink coloured screw cap. When the cap is opened a plastic stopper is fitted on the neck with ‘pierce’ written on the stopper. It is suggested to make a hole in it to let the rose water come out easily and in a right quantity. Appearance looks all pinkish and cute to me.
My Experience: Two years ago, I knew nothing about CTM(Cleansing Toning Moisturizing) routine and when I got to know, I got myself a good cleanser, toner and a moisturizer. Dabur Gulabari is my first toner. Rose water is transparent in colour and smell is of roses which is refreshing. After cleansing, I dab it in cotton and then apply to my face and it takes out the dirt effectively. It stings a bit on eyes so I keep it away from them. I take out about 4-5 drops for my face and neck. It’s pocket friendly and will last long. It evenly tones out my skin and gives an instant glow. I wish it came in a spray bottle (it comes also in a spray bottle but in a different variant which has loads of chemicals so I won’t get it). It freshens up my face and controls oil for a good period of time. It’s a good toner for oily skinned girls. Although there are many uses, I use it only for toning purpose. I hate the fact that it contains parabens and don’t think a natural rose water should contain this much of chemicals. I refrigerate it before using and it gives me a cool sensation. I’m not sure it will suit dry skin or not but I’m sure it works on normal and oily skin.
• Good quality toner at affordable price.
• Takes dirt out of the face.
• Property of being multipurpose.
• Imparts a healthy glow on skin.
• Refreshes the skin on summer days.
• Contains parabens and other chemicals.
• May not be suitable for dry skin.
Final Word: All in all it’s a nice rose toner which does its job effectively and removes dirt and grime. Since I’m using it from two years I trust this product. Only thing I don’t like is that it contains chemicals. You can’t get better than this at such a price. It makes the face radiant instantly so I use it every now and then and recommend it to try once.
Rating: 4/5 (-1 for stinging eyes and parabens.)
