The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist Review


I've had a bit of a backwards relationship with facial mists. I've gone from hating the very idea of one to being kind of lost without using one as part of my morning routine - here's why.

As an oily-skinned girl, up to about a year ago I couldn't fathom the idea of using something post-powdering to actually bring a bit of glow back to my face. Surely I'd be over-producing that naturally as the day progressed?!


Facial spritzes, for me, fall under the same category as facial oils and balm cleansers; for my skin type, they seem wrong, but they're actually so, so right. I'd used thermal water on top of make-up before but didn't love it, apart from on super-hot days. The breakthrough for me was when I started using Urban Decay's De-Slick makeup setting spray - it's not too 'wet', has a fine mist and makes my makeup look less powdery and last longer. Excellent stuff.

I re-ordered it recently from Debehnams along with a couple of other things and was informed - after placing said order - that it was out of stock. What is with that?! I was annoyed but wqon't complain too much as I ended up purchasing The Body Shop Vitamin E Facial Mist as a result of this (minor) mishap. First world problems, eh?

So, on to this actual product. I tried it in-store one day, really liked it (again, a lot more than I thought I would) and ended up purchasing it the next week. This is a very hydrating spray and doesn't claim to lengthen the wear time of make-up or anything like that. Sounds like it might not suit my skin type, but I am dehydrated as well as oily (as are many people), and I find that using this helps keep my skin feeling balanced without interfering with my makeup. The spray is a nice fine mist; I've also been using it as a hydrating toner sometimes after an exfoliating one like Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner (still an absolute favourite of mine, FYI).

It's definitely an optional product, kind of a necessary unnecessary item, but one that I totally recommend. For €11 you're getting a product that can be used as a toner as well as a make-up setting spray - if you're oily like me - I think you'll like it, and I can also see a lot of people with dry skin getting on famously with this. What's not to love?!

  1. Kinda makes me wanna try face mists. I'm oily skinned too, so anything that adds an extra layer of oils or a liquid-y film after powdering, scares the crap outta me. haha.
