Etude House Mineral Bottle Facial Mist recently launched in Korea in Deep Moisture or Moisture Soothing formulas. I happen to be a facial mist fanatic so I quickly snatched up Etude House Mineral Bottle Facial Mist to give it a try.
Let’s see what I think!
Etude House Mineral Bottle Facial Mist apparently contains Belgian Spa Thermal Water which is rich in minerals as well as hyaluronic acid. Skin Food, Holika Holika, and tons of other Korean brands are legendary for over exaggerating their facial mists to death with claims of them being made with Alaskan Spring Water, minerals, a host of anti-aging benefits, etc…etc….needless to say most are just super moisturizing which, really, is all I desire out of a facial mist. Whether or not some brand rep climbed the highest iceberg in Alaska and tapped the water to create the facial spray is completely lost on me so thanks for all the crazy claims but I’m cool with something that’s simply moisturizing! It’s all I need, it’s all I want in my facial mist.
Facial mist isn’t to be confused with a makeup setting mist or spray. I wouldn’t use Etude House Mineral Bottle Facial Mist to set my makeup and I wouldn’t recommend you do so because that’s simply not what it was created for and it will do you absolutely no good using it as such. I think of it as more a start to my skincare or as a toner of sorts to add extra moisture to my skin so it feels less tight after a cleanse. I also feel like it’s the perfect way to add a little moisture after stepping out of a hot shower. Typically my skincare ALWAYS begins with a facial mist. It also allows my other skincare to absorb more easily into my skin.
Etude House Mineral Bottle Facial Mist is a lighter hydrating mist but it still manages to not only add a nice bit of moisture but also helps my skin to retain that moisture. It isn’t the more hydrating facial mist I own nor is it my favorite as that title is reserved for Sana’s Hadanomy Collagen Mist but it is quite nice and a step above many facial mists I own from brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown, etc…!
If you’ve tried Sana’s formula and found it a bit too slick for your tastes I’d urge you to try out Etude House Mineral Bottle Facial Mist. This is a nice, lightly hydrating mist that preps well for makeup and keeps skin soft, smooth, and able to retain moisture so it appears plumper and younger.
I got mine from one of my favorite Ebay.com sellers, Biz.Inside as it is free shipping and under ten bucks (not close to Korean retail but not too expensive either by US standards).
