Many of you have asked what I think about rose water, and it's a short answer: rose water is perfumed glycerin water, nothing more. Any benefits a user sees from using a rosewater product are coming from the other ingredients, not the rose fragrance.
This is a slightly more complicated question than you might realize, though, because while rose--just straight "rose"--oil, water, etc., have no purpose or benefit in skin care, and merely serve as "tonic" ingredients, that is ingredients that make you feel nice because of their pleasant smell, but that don't actually improve the health of the skin, there are two other rose-related ingredients that are good for the skin: evening primrose oil and rosehip oil.
However these two rose-related oils are not fragrant, sweet cousins of rose oil, so if you are using a product that smells like roses, it is fragranced with rose oil or perfume. Neither evening primrose oil nor rosehip oil have the same fragrance as plain rose oil (or rose water).
My goal with my videos and notes is to teach you all how to read labels on your own, so that eventually you won't need my opinion. So remember, evening primrose and rosehip are good, and just plain "rose", or rose-scented products should be avoided.
