A. According to Huffington Post, rosehip seed oil is derived from the pod-like fruit that sits below the rose flower. Containing ultra-concentrated amounts of vitamins A and C, rosehip oil can help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, plus lighten or inhibit hyperpigmentation. Rose essential oil is crafted using tens of thousands of the flower’s petals to create a single one – making it one of the most costly oils on the market. With ultra-hydrating and emollient properties, rose essential oil can help to heal wounds, refine texture and tighten skin. Conversely, rose water is created using an intricate distilling process. The resulting product is a light and refreshing tonic containing trace amounts of petal-produced oil, which boasts anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties – ideal for balancing the complexion.

A. Versatile rosewater is stellar at removing the signs of redness and discoloration, making it an ideal candidate for banishing under eye circles and eliminating puffiness.

Alternatively, try Coola Environmental Repair Calm Glow Eye Gel, which is formulated with rose flower water, perfect for calming and hydrating inflamed or irritated skin – so it looks like you got a full eight hours of rest, even if you didn’t.
