Not exactly sure what the hype about this product is... I just used up the 30ml bottle that was $20. I used this up very quickly (although it was a small bottle, lasted less than a month) and I don't think I was using an excessive amount. I did not enjoy the herbally scent and it made my eyes feel mentholated when I opened them. It wasn't very hydrating and I really didn't notice it doing anything amazing to my skin when applied. I much preferred the Mario Badescu rose water toner to this product. One thing I did love about the product was the packaging, it has a great spray and beautiful glass bottle. All in all, great packaging but horrible smell, overpriced and didn't really do much for my skin.

I have an unfortunate love for this mist. I doubt it does anything for my skin but it certainly uplifts my soul. I've used up a 100ml bottle of it and I really want another but at $50, I'm definitely hesitating. It has a beautiful herbal scent and a leaves your skin feeling refreshed. Is it essential? Dear god no. Does it feel divine? Dear god yes.
Note that if you have problematic or sensitive skin, I would not recommend this. I know that a lot of people use this as a treatment for suffering skin but it has a lot of irritating ingredients (almost all the essential oils) which is also why I would reserve this for occasional use. Despite all that, I want this because it feels spectacular and it's lovely to end a spa night with a spritz of this.

i wish i could reply to peoples reviews.I am coming across the same things being said about this item by people saying they see a toner as an unnecessary step or that they don't get a toners purpose. Im a esthetician and i just wanted to weigh in to try and give a helpful explanation.
When we wash our face with a cleanser, what is happening is the top protective layer of our skins natural oils are being stripped or washed away, along with dirt and makeup. When this happens, the skins PH balance is then "out of wack". What a toner can do is a few things. One, they are used to bring our PH level back up to where it should be. When this happens our next steps, be it moisturizer or serums can work to their full effect. When we don't bring that PH level to normal levels using a toner, the next step has to work over time to do that step, lessening its intended effects. Two, a toner can clean deeper into pores and depending on whats in it it can possibly sanitize. When we exfoliate especially using a toner after can clean into the fresh pores. Third, depending on what is in a toner, it can have serum like effects and qualities like this one. You've just washed your face, it is clean, pores are opened and clear now you apply a toner with nutrients or essential oils or vitamins or treatments. The skin is going to absorb all the good stuff right up and then when you apply moisturizer after i like to think of it like a protective sealant. Your skin will absorb the moisturizer naturally through out the day. It wont be trying to get the PH balance back up sucking up the moisturizer right away. I hope this is helpful, i just thought id share. I dont know how this product adds up considering what ive added here.

I like it and it smells refreshing if you like herbal smells. it has essential oils in it and such which you need to shake before you spray it, but I find that it doesnt do really anything. It's essentially glorified water (similar to evian water spray, but with serum in it). I guess if you are itching to buy something and want to try it you could, but I just dont see any point in buying a refreshing mist-er (it made my made up shiney after i tested it as a makeup spray).

I don't get this product. It's a toner with some nice ingredients. I adore the smell, so fresh and pepperminty, feels gorgeous to spray on the face after a shower, soothing, sinks in really fast and has the most beautiful even spray (nozzle)/finest mist. In terms of making my skin nicer, I see nothing. Hasn't calmed break outs or anything, toners generally feel like an unnecessary step for me after cleansing and before serums/moisturisers etc and this is no exception. Beautiful luxury product, but not beneficial for the skin in my opinion.

This is by far my favourite toner! Before I always used La Mer Mist, but this one takes the price... The smell is divine, very refreshing and calming: a nice mint mixed with herbs, just lovely. However be careful around the eyes at it has a pretty strong mint in it. When I use this toner after my cleansing it feels alot more soothing and refreshing, just as if I had cleansed my face in icecold herbal water - but during the day it gives a nice refreshing feel too..
I definatley recomend this one to everyone!

I didn't realise how much I loved this product until I ran out! I use it before my decleor oil after cleansing and also to de cake and smooth my makeup. I also use it throughout the day to brighten my makeup and refresh my skin. It's perfect for nights out and freshening my skin. I love it! Well worth buying! P.s I have noticed a lot of people saying it drys their skin out but this isn't the case for me and sometimes my skin can be rather dry.

This is so hyped on YT & with bloggers, I felt like I had to try it. Plus the glass bottle feels so luxe. So I spent $18 & got the small size. For starters, I don't really like the scent. I can't really describe it but it's not something that I find appealing. I also don't notice that it makes any difference in my skin. And finally, just doing 2 spritzes (sp?) every morning makes the product level go down *really* quickly. Even if I did like it, I don't think I could afford to like it for very long.

Now after reading negative reviews due to the ingredients in this product, I'm on the fence about repurchasing this.
- I bought this about 1 1/2 month ago because I couldn't handle my curiousity about it any long. I wanted to try this product out for myself.
- I like the minty scent of it. It really helps me wake up in the morning when I spritz this post-shower pre-moisturizer (focusing on my T-zone)
- My moisturizer and eye cream glide effortlessly after spraying this elixer. Therefore I would say this product has improved the texture of my skin.
- I've only sprayed this before applying makeup. I have yet to try it after applying makeup to set/refresh my face, so I cant comment on the effect it gives
- I havent been using my regular toner since I purchased this, honestly because I'm too lazy to grab a cotton pad. I love this spray, and have been using it day & night therefore I have to repurchase another one really soon.
- I know that ppl have said below that the ingredients are not beneficial or good for the skin, but I personally haven't seen any negative/bad physical results on my skin.
lastly, I WILL be repurchasing this product.

I feel disappointed about this product because Lisa Eldridge likes and recommends it. However, the ingredient list is quite a nightmare: lots of fragants oils blended in alcohol. If you care about your skin, don't use it. Those oils not only have shown no good properties on the skin but are irritant and can promote cell death.
It might smell good, but it's almost like putting an eau de toilette on your face. Spray it on your clothes if you need to use it.
