I like this spray a lot but I don't use it too often because I have oily skin. I use it when I put on too much powder makeup and want my face to look more real. Then I spritz my face and all is well. I also used it to spray my foundation brush when I am trying to achieve a dewy look.
I may start using it at night maybe post toner and pre moisturizer and see how that goes. But is is a very refreshing basic spray that can be multipurpose.
I received this as a gift a while back and, honestly, had no idea what to do with it for a while. I been experimenting lately and am starting to think this is going to be a product I can't do without.
I don't like to use too much moisturizer in the morning because my skin gets oily later in the day, so I spritz this on after toner, then again after applying my face makeup - I don't know which ingredients do the work, but I find I rarely need to set my face makeup with a powder any more, especially if I toss this spray in my purse and spritz on a little refresher once or twice during the day. Using this spray even out any redness my tinted moisturizer doesn't cover up, so I get to wear less makeup and the combination of the two sets in a semi-matte but still natural/dewy look.
I'm not positive that I am using this product as it is meant to be used, but it works for me and I will definitely keep buying it.
Cons: I can only find one place in town that sells it, and they're pricey. Also, it's not available at the website where I order most of my beauty products (and it smells oddly like brown sugar, but the scent doesn't stick around too long).
UPDATE: I have found that basically any gentle, natural toner works as well as this for setting makeup and refreshing skin throughout the day. Plain witch hazel, witch hazel+aloe, Thayer's, homemade herbal teas, whatever. So, down 1 lippie overall now that I have learned this is nothing special - just quite expensive toner. I WOULD still buy it on sale though if just to support a company that in general, I agree with :)
I use a spray of this on my face before applying moisturiser and now and then as a pick me up. I've never really used this kind of product before and tend not to use toners etc since they usually make my skin feel either tight and irritated or sticky. I actually only bought this to get free delivery on an online order so I'm very surprised to find myself ordering a second bottle. I find using this under moisturiser allows me to use less product as it makes it easier to spread and aids absorption. I also occasionally use it as a pick me up if my face is feeling a bit dry and it refreshes and adds some moisture without any additional weight.
I loved this when I was pregnant and living in San Francisco. It kept my skin hydrated when I was dry from nursing and the winter. It has a nice, fresh scent and no chemicals to harm a nursing baby...but now that I live in super-arid lake Tahoe, I need a spritzer/toner than is more moisturizing.
I looooove this stuff! Im currently on accutane and my skin is extremely dry, i couldnt get thru my day without carrying this stuff around with me for spritzing throughout the day. I can often be seen spraying my face in my car while stopped at a red light haha. Also puts the moisture back in my face after apply mineral makeup & and helps to "set" it. I highly recommend this stuff!
I have used this to set my mineral make-up for a few years now and still think it is great. My skin isn't oily (its combination) and therefore I don't find it leaves me too oily later in the day at all. I like a dewy look, however, so for those of you looking for something to leave you matte you may prefer a spray without additives (aloe vera etc.) such as Avene, Evian etc.
i think that this is a GREAT spray for people with dry skin, not so much oily skin unless of course you want to look like an oil slick. :P it does hydrate the skin very well, but it leaves my skin looking rather shiny and oily which is not the look i'm going for. :P
i tried this product out in the summer, but i'm guessing maybe it would work better in the winter? i'm not sure, but it's just a thought. i say this because i personally have combo oily skin, so it didn't work out all that great with me.
i actually like the scent of this spray. i don't find it overpowering at all, but that could just be my personal preference.
i didnt have much use for this. i thought it smelled funny and felt weird. it is probably good to set your mineral make up with but other than that i dont see much use for it
This toner-in-a-spray-bottle is great for setting my mineral makeup. In fact, I'm totally impressed with the results. I'd read about setting the makeup with a light mist of water or heavy water, but was skeptical. But when I saw this at Vitamin Shoppe one day during a grand opening sale when everything was 40% off, I decided to buy it and try it out. I'm glad I did - I will definitely keep buying this.
This is a spray on toner-type product. You spray this on your face when you want a "pick me up" or need extra hydration. It has a light, heavenly scent and has no irritating ingredients..IMHO. I keep mine in the fridge as it feels more refreshing spraying it on. I bought it for 5.58 on vitaminlife.com and it's 4 ounces of product. I especially love it in the summer..I find a light mist doesn't disturb my make-up
