Hi there! Today’s post is about the face mist I’m currently using – Nourish Balance Refining Toning Mist for Combination Skin. This product, which is 97% organic, promises to balance skin PH, to close pores, and to prepare skin for nourishment.
This face mist contains vitamins C, B3, B5 and E, as well as well as niacinamide. Sounds great, doesn’t it? I’ve been using this face mist for a few weeks now, and here’s what I think.
I think this product is a lot better than the last facial water I’ve had. And whilst I think that this product is alright, I don’t love it. And here’s why…
I think this product works well as the first step in my skin care (after cleansing). I spray my face (about 4-5 sprays) right before I use my serum or facial oil. However, I’d like this product more if it had a better spray nozzle. With this nozzle, a spray is more like a splash, and I’d prefer a light mist. Superdrug managed to get the spray nozzles right for their cheap face mists, so I’d expect “better” brands to get this feature right too. Apparently I’m expecting too much.
Another thing I don’t like is the strong fragrance. It’s a mix of concentrated apple juice and something else. I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s very strong and it’s cloyingly sweet. Fortunately, the fragrance doesn’t linger!
I haven’t noticed any benefits other than hydration. My pores look the same, and my skin tone and texture don’t appear any different. I will continue to use this product because it plays well with my serums and facial oils, but I wouldn’t repurchase it. As of now, Superdrug’s B. Facial Spritz and Superdrug’s Calm Skin Facial Spritz are still my favourite face mists.
Nourish Balance Refining Toning Mist for Combination Skin is available as 100ml for £12 through Nourish’s own web site. I paid £3 (TK Maxx).
