Bath & Body Works Face & Body Refresher launched a short time ago in three different scents and I have to admit as a fan of facial mists I was excited about these! This is a non-drying, alcohol-free formula that refreshes and conditions skin. It can be used on the body or on the face and is available in three scents of Acia Berry, Rose Water, and Almond Milk.
Sounds awesome right?
Have you tried them?
Yay or Nay?
I can’t believe I’m about to say this. GULP! But Bath & Body Works Face & Body Refresher are a nay for me. I tried two of the formulas in store. The mist is light and refreshing but not terribly moisturizing. They’ll make a nice prep for moisturizer as they’ll allow your other potions to absorb more easily. I thought the formula was quite nice if not a little basic for a facial mist as I typically desire something a bit more hydrating.
The price is $18.50 for 6 oz which is rather high by Bath & Body Works standards but none the less there are always sales and coupons so I can’t rant much about the price at all.
So, all in all a pretty basic, slightly expensive face mist that can also be used on your body. That’s where things get iffy! Body you say? Yes, body! I was slightly concerned about this but became even more concerned when I realized how heavily fragranced these were. They aren’t for sensitive skin types that’s for sure especially though sensitive to fragrance in their skincare. I’m actually rarely bothered by fragrance in my skincare but for some reason I didn’t really love how much fragrance these contained. I felt like I was misting my face with one of their Fine Fragrance Mists.
Nope, do not like.
I didn’t break out or anything but I just thought it was a bit too much fragrance for a facial mist. Something lighter and fresher would have been more desirable.
Interesting that Bath & Body Works is starting to creep into skincare. Not that they haven’t in the past but I’m noticing they are kind of creating these multitasking formulas lately for skin and body which I find interesting.

Too much fragrance for you?
