[The Face Shop] Pure Water Facial Mist in Jeju Marine

The Face Shop Pure Water Facial Mist in Jeju Marine (70 ml), Php 395

Ever since I noticed that my skin has been dry, I have been really concerned with my skin care. At first I was planning on trying to buy an Evian Mineral Water Spray but when I saw this on discount while I was window shopping at The Face Shop, I decided to buy it.

The Face Shop Pure Water Facial Mist in Jeju Marine:

A spray-type toner keeping the skin refreshed and moisturized with Jeju Samdasso water and Jeju gullweed extract.

Directions: Spray an adequate amount 20 cm from the face. Tap lightly for full absorbtion.

Ingredients: Water, glycerin, alcohol denat, butylene glycol, PEG-60, hydrogenated castor oil, sargassum pallidum extract, octyldodeceth-16, disodium edta, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, butylparaben, ethylparaben, isobutylparaben, propylparaben, fragrance, butylphenyl, methylpropional, palpha-isomethyl ionone.

Made in Korea.

What I like about the product:

  • I got in on sale from Php 395 was sold for only Php 250!
  • Slim packaging. Easy to carry and bring around.
  • Doesn’t irritate my skin.
  • The mist is very cool even if it was just inside your bag.
  • Very refreshing and moisturizing.
  • Doesn’t melt or wash away my makeup when I use it in the afternoons.

Neutral:

  • Contains phenoxyethanol and parabens. I saw articles about it but I think it is still arguable whether it really is bad for the skin or not. Some people might not strictly like it, while I am just neutral about it. Until there is a final say on it, I will stay neutral about this matter.
  • Contains fragrance. I do like the light sweet smell of it, but I prefer my products unscented. Fragrance in itself has too many chemicals in it.

What I don’t like about the product:

  • None that I can think of.

Tip: Pat it on to your skin instead of rubbing it, that way your skin gets more moisturized.

Verdict: I really liked this facial mist. A few weeks ago I ran out of my morning moisturizer and I used it as my substitute while I still haven’t bought one. I used it after I was my face in the morning to retain some moisture in my face. It helped my face not to dry out when I ran out of moisturizer. You can use it anytime- morning, afternoon, or evening; before or after makeup and when your skin feels dull and dry.

Would I repurchase? Yes!

To whom do I recommend this to? To anyone who wants to refresh and moisturize their face. Grab one while it is still on discount!

[The Body Shop] Olive Oil Dry Oil Mist

Olive Oil Dry Oil Mist (100 ml) Php 795

I was set into buying this when I first saw this being promoted at The Body Shop Philippines’ Facebook page because I initially thought it was a facial mist. I lost my intention of buying it when I found out it was a body mist! The SA kept bugging me to try it and buy it and was then talked into buying it.

The Body Shop Olive Oil Dry Oil Mist:

Spritz on lightweight moisturization with lustrous Community Trade organic olive oil. NORMAL/DRY SKIN.

Easily absorbed, non-greasy all-over moisture with Community Trade organic olive oil to leave skin soft and supple.

The Body Shop is against animal testing and supports Community Trade organic olive oil from Italy.

Ingredients: Cyclomethicone, Brassica Campestris (Rapeseed) Seed Oil, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Fragrance,  Linalool, Butylphenyl Methypropional, Amyl Cinnamal, Hexyl Cinnamal, Tocopherol, Citronellol, Citral, Limonene, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Methyl 2-Octynoate, , Geraniol.

Made in UK.

What I like about the product:

  • I got in on sale for only Php 477 instead of Php 795!
  • It is lightweight and is easily absorbed by the skin.
  • It is non-greasy. It is perfect for the humid and ever-changing weather in the Philippines. It doesn’t make you feel oily and sticky when you’re sweaty and when you’ve been wet by the rain.
  • Very moisturizing. Makes my skin feel baby soft and smooth even after a day of not using it!
  • Gives you a nice sheen/glow.

Neutral:

  • I am not really fond of its scent which is organic-y and olive-y.

What I don’t like about the product:

  • Expensive when bought at regular price of Php 795 for 100 ml. I guess you’ll just have to wait for it go on sale.
  • The bottle can get greasy from constantly applying  with  the hands.

Tip: Pat it on to your skin instead of rubbing it, that way your skin gets more moisturized.

Verdict: I grew to love The Body Shop Olive Oil Dry Oil Mist despite my initial presumptions. The Body Shop Olive Oil Dry Oil Mist is the first body oil I have tried and the effects are just amazing. I really wish they had a facial mist like this because I have super dry face.

Would I repurchase? Yes, when on sale!

To whom do I recommend this to? To anyone who have dry skin and who wants a non-greasy body moisturizer.
