This is a great setting spray! It makes my mineral make-up last longer and it is a fraction of the price of other sprays. It also doesn't add a weighted feeling to my mineral makeup. I simple follow the directions. I hold 12 inches from the face and spray 1-2 sprays. I have been using mine for 2+ months and I have experienced no smell. I even opened the bottle and smelled the liquid and no smell. Maybe the people who are experiencing a smell got a bad or botched batch?
My make-up lasts so much longer when i use this product and seems less oily throughout the day.
I like this mist, its pretty good for $3 I don't typically except too much from ELF I only like a few things from them, but I got this on a whim and it does keep my make up in place and last all day, though I do wear a face primer, a good sweat resistant foundation and set with powder...I like to spray this on my face first, let it dry, apply the rest of my make up and then spray once again when im done, it works better for me that way. I live in Fl and its pretty hot down here and my make up holds up well. It does smell kinda weird but its not that bad, the smell dies down after it dries, it doesn't ruin any make up, I like to spray from arms length distance, 1 or 2 sprays to ensure its sprayed evenly, I would buy it again, it gives a dewy look too, esp if you apply to much powder this will help tone down a caked face. And it didn't break me out
I've used this many times this summer to keep my powder foundation in place and out does a good job, you will need to blot/touch up your face if you have oily skin once during the middle of your day but that's really it. The smell wasn't strong at all I hardly notice it. Great product for 3 bucks and I even like out better then my Mac studio fix plus, which to me made my face look shiny and isn't for oily skin.
I've only used this product once...never again. I can't get over how disgusting it smells and refuse to use it. *sigh* I had high hopes for it considering gets pretty good reviews but was sadly disappointed.
ugh. This spray broke me out bad!! At first I didn't want to believe it because I really wanted to love this product but sadly it was the cause of my sudden painful breakouts :c ladies if you're skin is sensitive/acne prone type. This may not be for you. As for noticing the way it set my makeup at the end I noticed a little bit of difference but not a whole lot! But it did make my makeup last all day. That's the only thing I had loved about this product. But I guess I'm back on a mission to find a setting spray that won't beat up my face *tear*
It works but it smells bad. I also did not like the packaging.
I LOVE this spray! It's a miracle for these summer months! I am living in a state that has been having horrible heat waves and power outages...this spray has been a godsend! It gives my make-up minimal melting (it's gonna melt to some degree when the weather is 106 degrees and sweat is pouring down my face.) I swear, hands-down, thanks to this spray, I definitely looked better and fresher this past week compared to my co-workers lol. But also, it is refreshing and soothing as a skin pick-me-up throughout the day. It has wonderful skin-loving ingredients (Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber, Vitamins A, C, & E!) It's so cooling on my face! Even when the weather isn't hellacious (in the winter), this lends my makeup staying power, and I notice the difference between my makeup when I do wear it vs. when I don't. My makeup definitely doesn't stay as long on the days when I don't use it. As for the smell, it has a slight smell to it, just a bit of the aloe and cucumber, not bad at all. Plus the smell fades after about a minute (for me at least.) As for the application, you need to hold the bottle about 3/4 to a full arms length away from your face. If you hold it too close, it will come out too heavy. But, it's not a problem for me, as I hold it an arms length away and the spray is a fine mist by the time it hits my face! This is a little miracle-working gem for only $3! I will not be without it, especially during the summer!
It works perfect for helping to keep my makeup looking fresh all day!
Also, I didn't find the smell to be one that was unbearable for me at all (and I have what I would consider to be the world's most scent sensitive nose!). Even though it is fragrance free, it does have a discernible aloe+cucumber scent. And, the scent is only noticeable upon application, not after the product has dried (which happens in less than a minute).
This product has become a staple in my makeup regimen. I just do one or two sprays and that's it. This allows for my makeup to stay set for practically all day.
I really enjoy this product. It helps get rid of the powdery finish on my face, and it leaves my skin looking and feeling hydrated. I don't think I noticed any extra staying power though.
