Delizioso Skincare is the brainchild of two sisters who wanted to create a natural skincare line free from parabens, alcohol and chlorine, petrochemicals, GMO's, gluten, fragrance, formaldehyde, and pesticides.

The Bulgarian Rose Toner ($36) is a rose hydrosol. What is a hydrosol? It is essentially a by-product of essential oil production. They have all of the beneficial properties of essential oils but are much less concentrated and are not "oily" due to the fact that they are steam distilled. Due to the lower concentration, they can be used directly on the skin rather than being diluted. According to my research, they are often used as a body splash, room freshener, deodorant, or even added to finger bowls for an elegant dinner experience.

Rose itself is especially valuable for dry, aging, and sensitive skin. It is also known to reduce redness, which makes it an excellent choice for those who suffer from rosacea.

After using this product for two weeks, I have to admit that I did not see any noticeable difference in the moisture level or aging of my skin. This product did not cause any breakouts and might have helped slightly with redness. I love the benefits of rose and have seen them with other rose toners but those toners also had additional ingredients added to them. I think that I would prefer a true 'toner' to have additional beneficial ingredients. At $36 for 4 ounces, I think you could find a hydrosol for much cheaper elsewhere.
