MAC Cucumber Prep + Prime Fix

So yeah MAC Cucumber Prep + Prime Fix+ makes me feel like I’m misting myself down with salad dressing. Shrug. Sorry! But a cucumber scented facial mist? It just makes me think of salad!

MAC Cucumber Prep + Prime Fix+ is one of five new limited edition MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ in a variety of scents and cucumber is one. This is a great one for tucking in the fridge as it feels cool and fresh on skin after a long hard day at work (or play!).

MAC Cucumber Prep + Prime Fix+

MAC Cucumber Prep + Prime Fix+ is a lightweight water mist infused with antioxidants and the refreshing but subtle crisp, cool scent of cucumber. I love MAC for introducing Fix+ in different scents. I’m a lover of fragrance in my skincare. I realize there are sensitive users out there that don’t care for it but personally fragrance just adds a little bit of a nicer element to skincare for me. The cucumber scent in this is incredible subtle but very fresh and crisp!

You can use Fix+ in a variety of ways. Step out of the shower and mist it all over your face to lightly hydrate your skin prior to applying your skincare. The lightweight moisture it provides allows moisturizer, serums, and other skincare to absorb more easily into skin. Or mist it on after makeup to set it for longer wear!

Personally, I don’t really like the Fix+ formula as a makeup setting spray. I always feel like I’m my makeup is melting off if I use after makeup so I tend to use it prior to makeup and skincare. Although if you’re a big mineral powder or powder makeup user you’ll find Fix+ refines the finish of powders and adds a bit of moisture so powder doesn’t dull out your complexion or give it a flat finish!

Funny as I tried Coconut and that seemed to absorb a bit of the excess oil on my face but Cucumber feels a little more moisturizing to me which is great as I’m all about more moisture. I like storing the Cucumber Prep + Prime Fix+ in the fridge at my office and misting it on mid-day when my face feels like it needs a little refresher!

Honestly, if you’re misting this into the air at the counter you are NOT going to smell the cucumber. This is on face experience and the scent is very subtle but still lovely none the less.

I’m glad MAC released these but I kinda wish they did it in the Charged Water formula instead which I find a bit more moisturizing than the Fix+ formula but none the less I love these and I’m glad I purchased them.

Sadly, they appear to be selling out fast so grab them now at your fav counter or online at Nordstrom.com.

    I tested each of the new scents at the MAC counter and I still love the original the best.

    I placed my order yesterday, but missed out on coconut 🙁

    Managed to get Rose and Cucumber though, so I’m looking forward to given them a try!

      Looks like Nordies still has Coconut if you want it also check macys, many of the macy’s I’ve been to the last few days have had them all in stock 🙂

    I got lavender and i really don’t care for the smell! It’s a very strong old musky smell

  • Pamela

    Have you tried the Yuzu kind? I’m curious of how it will smell. I also how it is moisturizing too like the cucumber one. Thank you for the review! Look forward to them 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      I have review on the way today! It’s very subtle and fresh! 🙂 not as moisturizing as cucumber though!

    I love the scent of cucumber so this is the one I want but I also love the scent of roses so hopefully I will be able to get that one too.

  • Carla

    The Fragrance House I work for created the Yuzu & Cooling Cucumber fragrances for this product launch! So happy you girls are liking it and that I came across this post!

    I stopped by the counter yesterday to buy the cucumber but after I tested it I purchased the rose instead.
