Santa Maria Novella Rose Water ml for sale | eBayFacebook Twitter Email. CNN — In an unassuming building on a quiet street, not far from the bustle of Florence's Santa Maria Novella train station, stands what is probably the world's oldest pharmacy and cosmetic shop. The rather plain entrance gives no inkling of the aromatic treasures within this year-old establishment, which still uses ancient recipes to make its modern-day perfumes and skin care products. Stepping inside, I'm engulfed by a potent fragrance of flowers and spices. The ambiance reminds me of a Florentine palace, with elaborate chandeliers, rich drapes, 18th century furniture and mellow lighting. Highly polished shelves are lined with bottles of sweet-smelling potions, colorful liqueurs, eau de colognes, soaps and creams. Behind the counter, a classily dressed saleslady is helping an elderly American couple choose between floral lavender and leathery tobacco hand-pressed soaps.

I've heard you shouldn't use rosewater on your face but I don't think that's true lol at least not for me. I use this as a very moisturising toner but it gets rid of cleanser well too I like using it after I use sunscreen or before re-applying sunscreen. About reviewer 5 reviews. I use this toner day and night after I wash my face. It's great as an extra cleanser and removes any left of make-up residue on my face, particularly undereye concealor. The toner is gentle on the skin, and has helped tone down the redness on the plains of my cheeks, and my temples.
