Review of CHANTECAILLE Pure Rosewater

Posted on July 17, 2013


Chantecaille is a luxury brand for serious skincare and beautifying cosmetics. Known for its uniquely high concentration of natural botanicals, their products focus on fighting inflammation, scientifically recognized as the main cause of aging. Here we are reviewing their star skin care product — Chantecaille Pure Rosewater.

Chantecaille_Pure_Rosewater-facial-toner-spritzer-skin-carePure Rosewater is the heart of the Chantecaille Aromacologie skincare range where it replaces regular water in all its formulas. The Rose de Mai petals used in Pure Rosewater are handpicked at dawn during May in the hills of Grasse in Provence, France. They are distilled in the purest artesian-well water producing an ultra-healing, moisturizing, and uplifting spray. Loaded with antioxidant vitamin C, this pure essence also possesses antibacterial properties and healing aromatherapeutic qualities.

The manufacturer states that this product contains 99.9% botanicals and is vegan-friendly as it’s ingredient list is rather simple containing only Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, and Citronellol. For a highly natural line, we wonder why they used parabens.

Our hands-on testing showed that the Chantecaille Pure Rosewater worked wonderfully as a energizing spritzer during the day, and as a toner after cleansing. The product absorbs into the skin lightly and provides a soothing refreshing feel. For people with sensitive skin, this product is safe for you as it is non-irritating. Regarding scent, our staff had mixed thoughts about the fragrance — some thought it was too strong while others thought it was heavenly.

Overall, the Pure Rosewater packs one spritzing refreshment and functions as an effective facial toner. However the drawback is that it does carry a hefty price tag of $62 for 3.4 oz / 100 ml. Some of our staff thought that this product was merely just a fragrance for the skin and would choose less expensive superior alternatives like the TwinLuxe Instant Energy Mist. But again, if you can afford it why not buy it?
