what is facewater

Facewater is a diverse range of patent pending, 100% plant derived and hydrosol based serums, cleansers, toners, moisturizers and more. Facewater delivers visibly clearer and healthier skin with noticeable radiance and long-term youth preserving effects.

At first glance I thought this product would not be a strong retinol for me. I was wrong. It is so amazing. I love the way it doesn't pill on the skin. You can layer it on top of your other serums. It sinks in and is not sticky at all. I have noticed my skin texture especially, on my forehead and nose clear up. I am very happy with this product. Does not burn. - Heather

100% plant based is different from natural

100% plant based means that all ingredients are derived from plants. there are many cosmetic ingredients that are considered “natural” but are not skin healthy such as mineral oil and paraffin wax.

way beyond clean

100% plant based formula
no glycols
no petrochemicals
no synthetic fragrance
no added dye or color
made by us
no parabens
no phthalates

no glycols

glycols are common cosmetic ingredients primarily derived from petroleum, and most are known to cause irritation. while plant-based glycol production is emerging, we believe using zero glycols in our formulas is the best way to guarantee skin healthy and compatible products.

*all of our products are vegan with the exception of those containing honey.

Just delightful. Very moisturizing

This stuff is great! It's kinda thick, it feels really pleasant and soothing to apply. I've read that bakuchiol and retinoids work well together so I usually apply it after my prescription tret, but have found that it layers nicely with just about anything. I also love that the bottle is nice and big, you can really slather it on.

Retains moisture

It’s a very moisturizing lotion, doesn’t dry out however i have not seen any reduction of wrinkles or brightness/even skin tone as you would with a retinol. I know it’s similar not the same as a retinol but again not seeing any changes on my face

Hi SJ,

Thanks for your feedback. Every skin type is different and response rates vary from person to person. Sometimes for some people it takes longer to see results and depends on what other products you are using as well. You can email us at to give us more information and help you further.


I love a good face product that doesn’t cost me $100 but works like a $100 product !! My face feels good not over moisturized but smooth.

Gentle Anti-Aging Treatment

I've used my fair share of anti-aging serums and creams, but I have to say this one is my favorite so far! It doesn't dry out my skin as other treatments can someone do. The consistency is very milky and absorbs into the skin beautifully!
Plus the size of the bottle! This is such a great deal!


I normally don't purchase face products without being able to see a ton of reviews but I really wanted to try these products. As someone who can't use retinol, this is an amazing alternative. I love the texture and how it feels on my face. Also, the price vs the size of the bottle is amazing - so much product and so reasonably priced.

I've only been using it for a few days but I love the way this feels. I'll definitely be buying more waters :)
