A lot of makeup removers use harsh chemicals and alcohol, which can cause skin to become dehydrated. This is particularly problematic for people who already suffer from sensitive skin. Rose water as a makeup remover offers a more natural and gentle approach to removing makeup. The soothing properties of rose water helps to keep your skin hydrated  with the added bonus of a rose scent.
