1 stars out of 5

Burt’s Bees Hydrating Facial Mist ($12.99) is a new aloe water hydrating facial mist that launched several weeks ago.

I’m an absolute facial mist junkie but I have long since found my HG facial mist. Although I try new facial mists here and there my tried and true, ride or die would be Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist. Nothing else compares to it!

So, yeah, I’m curious enough to try new facial mists but I know I’ll only return back to my beloved Sana’s formula!

I picked Up Burt’s Bees Hydrating Facial mist about two months ago and I never thought I’d be saying to you that it has WAY too much fragrance for me. If you know me, you know I don’t mind fragrance in my skincare and even enjoy it. But this stuff is WAYYYY to strong smelling for me.

Burt’s Bees Hydrating Facial Mist is $12.99 for a 5 oz bottle. The bottle is clear so you’ll want to store it out of direct light to keep it nice and fresh or even store it in your fridge. It’s a very fine mist so it won’t drench your face. I found it refreshing but not terribly hydrating. It does aid in the absorption of other products such as moisturizers and serums and didn’t leave a sticky nor tacky feel behind. Considering how fine a mist this is I don’t think you’d have any problem using this to set makeup as well should you like!

The formula doesn’t bother my eyes nor sting even though it has a very heavy fragrance. It’s a pretty basic formula that’s made up of water, glycerin, and aloe water. There aren’t any truly beneficial ingredients or antioxidants here so if you add that along with the lack of moisture it’s kind of a bust.

The fragrance was awful for me. It’s a heavy cough inducing cucumber fragrance that lingers. I hated it so much. I also think it sort of irritated my face as after applying it my face was a bit red and felt a little tingly after I used it.

All in all, not really a best in show for Burt’s Bees and I can safely say you can skip it!

Anyone try it and have a better experience than I did with it?

Where to buy

Ulta Target Amazon

Burt’s Bees Hydrating Facial Mist is a new $12.99 hydrating mist that contains water, glycerin, and aloe water. It’s 5 oz in size and arrives in a clear bottle that you should keep out of direct light so it remains fresh. For me the formula was lightly hydrating but didn’t have any long term or lasting benefits. It’s a fairly basic facial mist all in all and isn’t worth purchasing in my opinion due to the very, very strong and linger cucumber fragrance. This fragrance (or maybe something else in the formula) did leave my skin red and tingly.
