Rose water has been used in skincare for centuries. Indeed, bottles of the old-school elixir have long held pride of place on many a bathroom vanity as cult followers worldwide swear by its hydrating and anti-inflammatory qualities; and laud its misty rose scent.
Here on The Rock the go-to brand for the rosy mist is Benjamins Cosmetics. And if you’ve not yet picked up the attractive glass 120 ml bottle and cottoned on to the hydrating, moisturising, soothing rose water facial spray, you’re doing your face and neck a gross injustice. Thank Tuesday Style Dryer (TSD) later.
Toni-Moy A Stewart, business development manager for PA Benjamin, is delighted with the upsurge in demand of Benjamins Cosmetics’s Rose Water Facial Spray. “The facial mist — which was conceptualised to provide a quick, daily, make-up refresher whilst reviving dehydrated skin to provide a dewy glow — was launched a year ago” she shares before adding “Our facial spray is the epitome of our company’s mantra to grow our business through the introduction of new products. The icing on the cake for us is found in our facial spray being an extension of an existing line of products.” There’s more, TSD soon learns.
“The power of Benjamins Cosmetics Rose Water Facial Spray is found in its ability to act as a moisturiser to hydrate the skin, to be used as a primer before make-up application, as a setting spray after completing your make-up, and anytime throughout the day to refresh the skin.
“The versatility of the product can be found in its ability to be used on all skin types — normal, dry, oily and/or combination skin. It doesn’t harm that our product can be refrigerated for an extra refreshing boost.”
Thankfully, we’re not the only ones raving about the product! Here’s what our make-up artists and beauty enthusiasts have to say:

The smell of the spray is light and soft, not overpowering, which is not very easy to achieve with a scent like rose. The mist is also very fine, which makes for easy application.”— Charissa Clemetson, pro MUA and manager – social & digital marketing, Sagicor Group Jamaica (Photo: Naphtali Junior)
“I think this product is the perfect beach accessory and will be great as a touch-up after getting out of the water.”— Victoria Colahar, food blogger (Photo: Naphtali Junior)
“The essence of the rose water spray always gives me a mystical floral vibe. Apart from the excellent benefits to the skin, it helps to keep the skin hydrated and balanced throughout the day.”— Nicole Blake- Keith, pro MUA and principal Brushed by Nicole (Photo: Naphtali Junior)
