Wet n Wild Rebel Rose Photo Focus Rose Toner ($7.99) is a new, limited edition rose-scented toner that launched with the Rebel Rose Spring 2019 Collection a few short weeks ago. Wet n Wild has been really getting into skincare lately with quite a few different launches. I have to admit I don’t like their skincare launches for two reasons because one, many of their skincare launches are limited edition and two, they can be quite expensive. Look at the recent Wet n Wild Expert Level Cleansing Oil I reviewed! It’s $8.99 for 1.52 oz in size! Ouch!
I got the Rebel Rose Photo Focus Rose Toner in the Rebel Rose Full Collection Box. This is the first time I purchased one of these massive vaults from Wet n Wild! It was kind of exciting to get it and open it up to reveal all the pretty items inside. The packaging is an utter waste but I actually kept it and put it on a shelf in my makeup room. At some point I know I’ll remove it all and store it more sensibly but right now I’m just enjoying looking at it!
It’s the little things that make me happy.
I’m a suck for anything rose scented. I collect old Victorian Powder Jars and vanity sets and rose always reminded me of fancy ladies from the 19th Century. I’m pretty sure I was born in the wrong era! I’d make such a great Victorian!
The packaging on the toner is pretty brilliant as this is a glass, yes, a glass bottle. Shocking! I was surprised to see that. I think the glass adds a little tiny touch of elegance to the packaging however, if you’re as much as a klutz as I am be careful not to drop it. The bottle has a little bit of a goth edge with a black rose motif. The bottle holds 1.52 oz of toner.
I was surprised Wet n Wild went with a toner formula rather than a setting mist that’s so very on trend. This is a water-based formula that contains hydrating glycerine and rose water. It has a strong but very pretty rose fragrance. It’s meant to be used after cleansing just to restore moisture to your skin. I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t use it as a setting mist as well just to de-powder your face or refine the finish of your foundation since it is a super fine mist and shouldn’t interfere with your makeup!
It’s actually really basic formula wise. I wouldn’t say it hydrated my skin super well but it restores a bit of moisture after I step out of the shower or after I cleanse my face. I’m a massive Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist fan girl! It’s my ride or die! I tend to use it in the evening only though. I took to using Wet n Wild’s formula in the AM after my shower. It’s a nice way to just to lightly hydrate my face and get it ready for my morning skincare routine.
But like I said, it’s just basic! So, it’s nothing something I’d likely purchase again. But hey, I can’t anyway! It’s limited edition haha….!
Do you need it?
Probably not! But if you’re a rose fan it might just tickle your interest enough to buy it!
