I have combination skin that is incredibly sensitive. I am really careful about toners specifically, any kind of fragrance/ heavy products make my face break out. This product is the first toner I have tried that doesn’t make my skin burn, I even use it after shaving or exfoliating masks to help calm my skin down after. It also has brightened my skin immensely, in combination with the plant retinol serum water. I can’t recommend this product enough if you’re looking for a toner that won’t fry you out or make you break out.
I’ve been using this product for three months and I can honestly say I have noticed a difference in my overall texture and complexion on my face. The serum water is an interesting consistency and a bit thinner than I expected but it spreads beautifully, a little goes a long way. My skin is incredibly sensitive and I have yet to have a reaction to this or the witch hazel and honey toner. Overall I would say if heavy products, and scented products are not for your skin you may have found your next holy grail of skin care.
Rosehip oil water is awesome! Very light but effective. Highly recommend.
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.
This vitamin c water has almost transformed my skin overnight from dull to bright skin. I'm really amazed and almost in disbelief. I'm ready to pull the trigger on the full size. I think this item has converted me to using vitamin c in my skincare routine. It also smells juicy, tart, and sweet, an unintended bonus that surprisingly makes me even more excited to do my skincare routine. Most be those distilled acerola cherries!
PS - I wish this company had misters to buy separately. I love the colored packaging but I hate hate hate wasting this precious water (it drips down my hands and is wasted on a cotton pad). Even the small spout on the full size version doesn't really help the wasted water... I think the best way to use these waters is through misters/spray bottles. But then I miss the beautifully themed packaging :( maybe they could sell glass versions with mister nozzles and refillable containers of our very products? Just an idea! Love this product and can't wait to buy more.
Opening this rosewater was like approaching a rosebush in full bloom. Fragrant and fresh. The aromatherapy alone makes this toner amazing. I feel so calm when I use it. Generally I avoid "fragrance" in skincare, but PBD is using real distilled ingredients, and I am optimistic that there is more quality in their added fragrance than other brands. My skin feels calm and soothed when i use this, and so does my mental state, lol. It doesn't reach holy grail status like my soon Jung 5.5 toner (which literally feels like a sigh of calm on my skin) but it is hydrating and the incredible Fragrant scent is enough to keep me buying it. If you like the scent of roses or floral notes in your skincare, you won't want to sleep on this. You could easily use this as a face mist if you decant it in a spray bottle (maybe with some drops of facial oil) to keep th3 hydration and aromatherapy on tap.
I am new to Plant Beauty Distillery. I somehow stumbled across it online. But immediately I appreciated its approach to skincare. All skincare comes down to hydration (water) and moisturizing (oil). Of course, we also add in other various ingredients based on our skincare concerns (vit c, niacinamide, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, retinol, etc.) But overall, we need water to keep our skin hydrated and oil to keep it moisturized (lotions are mixtures of various things, but water and oil are the key players).
Anyway, PBD is doing things right by offering high quality waters and oils from distilled beneficial ingredients. And this cleanser in particular is no exception. The rose scent is subtle (not as beautifully fragrant as their rosewater) but it foams delicately on the face and washes away cleanly, leaving soft calm skin behind. I usually double cleanse (I use the pixi milky makeup remover as a first step) and using this as the second step felt incredibly calming and refreshing, like a breath of fresh air on the face. As someone with sensitive skin, it can be rare to find a cleanser as calming as this one. My face is less red and feels refreshed and not stripped or tight, but clean in the most relaxing way possible. A little goes a long way, so at this price point a simple, effective and calming cleanser with minimal but high quality ingredients is where it's at.
I'll note that i did use this as a one-step cleanser one time (with no oil-based cleanser beforehand) and my face did feel stripped, dry, and tight. For those with sensitive skin, go for an oil based first cleanser to get rid of makeup/sunscreen/dirt, and then use this as a second step. If done correctly, the double cleansing method is god tier for all skin types.
Finally, I follow a fungal acne safe routine. So I avoid particular ingredients in my skincare. The Macinwash Cleanser is not fungal acne safe, but I got it anyway just to see if it might work anyway. It felt incredible in its resurfacing/exfoliating capacity (i freaking loved it), but I did break out in small whiteheads the next day :( This cleanser on the other hand is fungal acne safe, as is their rosewater. If their rose moisture water was FA safe I would totally by it, but I don't want to risk it. Their makeup remover also isn't FA safe, which is unfortunate. This girl dreams of having a whole FA safe routine from a single affordable brand. Would love if PBD had more FA options - maybe even offering oilwaters from MCT oil or squalane. The population of people avoiding FA triggers in skincare continues to grow. It might help to be on that train early.
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

This moisturizer amazes me. It actually moisturizes my skin thank you so much! Great products! :)
This is one of the best ever toners I have ever used!! Makes my skin glow, and smooths it out. Clears my pores which is very important!
Thank you !
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.
Such a unique product. The smell is light and lovely. My skin drinks it up and it doesn't feel heavy. I will always have this on hand!
I LOVE the CosRx Snail Mucin Essence, but I love supporting small brands more! And even better this has the power of mushrooms which I incorporate into every aspect of my life as well 😅 The consistency is nice and creamy, and it absorbs so nicely into the skin ❣️
Don't get me wrong I used to love witch hazel for my skin! But it can be a bit drying; I feel like the extra ingredients in here (honey & array of vitamins) really helped to cleanse, refresh & hydrate my skin! I'm in love with this stuff!
This serum water feels awesome! It doesn't smell like tomatoes, incase that's something that may deter you. But I can definitely see the extra glow and my skin feels plump & healthy without feeling too weighed down. Bonus because my skin is still prone to dry spots (especially with the climate I live in) and sensitivity; so this is a great relief when I need a more mild & soothing 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!
My sister turned me onto this product and after saying it changed her skin overnight. I began using it and I didn’t really notice a difference until I skipped a day… wow. No mistaking the difference it was making in evening out the tone of my skin. 🙌🏼
I have 5 of the products and I love them so much. The size of the bottle for the price. Are you joking? Amazing. Highly recommend
I am amazed!
It is March, and still kind of cold and dry in north Texas. My regular moisturizer just wasn't cutting it.
My makeup looked caked on and icky.
I found this oil water from plant beauty distillery and wow! What a difference! In just 3 days my skin feels balanced!!! Yay! Finally!
It is non greasy and perfectly hydrating. Definitely recommend.
I used it at least once a day, sometimes twice a day. It absorbs really nicely which I like; I don't like feeling greasy. It hydrates fairly well. After use I noticed a matte effect, which I kinda like. The consistency of the product is pretty thin, which is good because I don't like thick products. I've had no adverse reactions and my skin is the same. There's been no change in moisture level. It is comparable to my regular product; her skin is just about the same amount of hydrated, it absorbs quickly and it's easy to use.
I haven't had any side effects. I really expected to break out, since toners and astringents tend to pull things out of my skin, but I didn't. I also expected her skin to get really dry (since I smelled the alcohol in this toner) but it didn't. It feels nourishing. It definitely was deep cleansing since even after face wash I still saw dirt on the pad.
very refreshing to use after my shower before i go to sleep, i moved the product into a glass mister bottle for easier application. i pair this with the rose hip oil water too and my skin feels very soft and hydrated in the morning.
I love everything about it. It's very smooth and very hydrating but doesn't feel heavy. I used it all over my face and neck and decolletage. It was a lovely experience and I still has some left I am going to savor. The product absorbs so nicely, but not too quickly. I like a little coating so that I feel like the product is working, and this did that. It was spreadable very evenly and not greasy. My skin has been very nice. It looks and feels luminous, healthy and hydrated, which are the goals. It's very smoothing and of course I wish it could remove all my wrinkles. I likes this so much better than comparable products.
First off, I love that this product is alcohol free, finally a product that doesn’t strip my skin and leave it feeling dry and flaky. My skin always feels so refreshed and supple after. Highly recommend
I love it and have no complaints. I feel it's more effective than my regular product. It accomplishes what I want it to do and removes my makeup well. My skin has been fine, no changes or problems. I think it's great and really pleased.
