I was recently approached to taste test H2R0se for GOF. With a lot of my life up in their air right now the promise of decreasing occasional, temporary stress, anxiety and enhancing your mood sold me right away. I was so excited because the list of other benefits of Rose Water and Saffron had me wishing my samples were sent overnight.
The packaging alone is so beautiful I was hesitant to open the bottles. There were four flavors, Apple, Mango, Peach and Wild Berry. I wasn’t sure what to expect at all, and I was slightly hesitant that they would taste like old lady perfume. I am beyond thrilled to report they did NOT!!! There was a distinct theme with all the flavors; they were light and refreshing. Flavored waters are often very sweet, almost syrupy even, the H2R0se water is not.
The first thing you tasted was the flavor of either peach, mango, berry or apple and that was followed by a slight hint of rose, but you definitely felt like you were drinking water. Almost like the water you get at a spa, with fresh fruit floating in pitchers of iced water. You felt good drinking this water because it didn’t feel sweet and sugar and there are only 80 calories in 12 ounces.
My favorite out of all the flavors was the Mango. The mango flavor married well with the rose and I was slightly disappointed that I let my photographer take that bottle back to his office.
The Peach flavor was a close second. There was a strong peach taste, and I could imagine this would be amazing on a hot summer afternoon.
The Berry flavor has a lightly sweet fruity flavor, and I could imagine this in a popsicle with fresh fruit.
The Apple was the lucky winner because someone gave me a small bottle of Fireball and I mixed them together. The hint of apple mixed with the cinnamon was just incredible.
H2r0se promises to improve skin texture and appearance, improve digestive health, increase satiety (decreases appetite), and improve emotional health. It is also a strong natural antioxidant and natural mood enhancer. All of these promises are another thing that makes it even easier to drink this water. Currently, H2r0se is only available in California, but they do ship. They sent me my samples to Nashville and each bottle was individually wrapped in bubble wrap, a box full of popcorn peanuts, and fragile stickers all over the box. My bottles all came completely intact.
