True Skin Hydrating Facial Water

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing this True Skin Hydrating Facial Water.

I bought this facial spray a couple of months ago, and I’ve actually been using it since then. So it’s time to write up what I think about it.

The first thing I noticed about this product was the funny lid. I guess they had a major issue with the manufacture of the bottles and that’s the reason this product ended up in TK Maxx’s online bargain bin. But who knows…

The next thing I found was that cucumber is listed as an ingredient on the front of the bottle. However, cucumber is not listed in the ingredients on the back of the bottle. I assume they made an innocent mistake, but regardless of this, not being able to get a few ingredients right is pretty sad.

How’s the actual product? Well, I’m not impressed.

This facial water provides basic hydration but that’s about it. I also don’t like the way it smells (tea tree oil), and I hate looking at the lid. Be careful not to get this stuff in your eyes as it stings like crazy (think sunscreen times 100). I will finish this product, but I would neither recommend it nor buy it again.

True Skin Hydrating Facial Water is available as 207ml. I paid £5.99 (TK Maxx).
