Rose water has been considered as a traditional beauty water that is also just as versatile. Rose water can control excess oils and maintain a healthy ph balance for skin, has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, full of anti-oxidants and most of all, can hydrate and moisturize skin.
Of course, I was drawn to the elegant true rose scent of Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrator EX and this is also my first rose toner. Along with its night gelly version, the scent of this hydrating toner is so natural and addicting, I totally love this!

Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrator EX Review:
I love roses and I was keen on trying out Naruko’s Rose line that focuses on hydration and moisturization and of course, brightening skin tone. Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrator EX is an excellent hydrating toner that you should not pass up on if you especially love roses and need a boost of hydration.
I was attracted to this rose line mainly on the excellent true rose scent. It felt like I was inside an English rose garden, if I would imagine. Smells fresh and botanical and just natural. If you are not into strong botanical and rose scents, this hydrating toner might be too strong for you.
The toner is viscous but not watery or runny, making it slightly thicker than water. It spreads evenly and my skin instantly drinks this toner, leaving no sticky residue.
My face is hydrated and plump and I did see somewhat brightening effects if I used this in conjunction with the Naruko rose night gelly. Of course, it delivers well in hydration and moisture, making my skin so soft and plump.
Naruko Rose & Botanic HA Aqua Cubic Hydrator EX is unlike other hydrating toners out there making this a light yet rich and highly nourishing toner. This does not contain alcohol and the brightening and hydration effects are instant.
This can work best for drier skin types but oily or combination skin types can also use this because does not leave a greasy or tacky finish.
The genius behind this rose toner is its instantaneous absorption that totally quenches skin’s thirst. It always leaves skin plump, bouncy, super soft and moist throughout the day. Highly recommended.
