Project Pan Week 6: The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist

project-pan-week-6

Happy Monday and welcome to week six of Project Pan! Project Pan follows Stash Matters, A Brash Attitude, Curly Spring Blossom and I as we pick 12 products to try and hit pan on/empty over 12 weeks (11 in my case).

This week I’m talking about The Body Shop’s Vitamin E Face Mist. This is the second of three products from The Body Shop to feature as part of Project Pan.

About

I purchased this Face Mist in January 2016 as part of my Birthday Body Shop Haul. I can’t quite remember if I saw this on other blogs and purchased it because of that or if I just wanted to try it as a setting spray. (I think it was a bit of both).

My bottle of Face Mist features the old logo and packaging. The Body Shop have since updated their logo and the packaging looks nicer and more crisp. The lid and cap are black and by the looks of things there is now a label around the bottle. I’m not sure if the size of the bottle has changed at all but the old bottle is a nice size and wouldn’t take up a lot of space if you’re traveling and want something quick and easy to refresh your face.

From the website:

A quick skin pick-me up and excellent for setting make-up. Spritz it on for instant refreshment, moisture, and protection. With a delicate rosewater scent.

•  For all skin types

pros

  • Doesn’t break me out or react with my skin
  • Compact, handy size
  • Feels refreshing when first spritzed

Cons

  • Doesn’t do much for my skin
  • Takes more than a couple of sprays to make skin feel properly hydrated
  • Price

Chanelle’s rating: 6/10 – In all honesty this isn’t a bad product but it doesn’t wow me either! I don’t think I would purchase this again in future. It does feel refreshing when it is sprayed onto the skin but I don’t find it hydrates my skin or does much in the way of setting makeup. You do get 100ml of mist and I’m not sure how much you get in other setting sprays but I don’t feel the price is reflective of the product. You’re basically paying $25 (NZD) for rose scented water. Sorry, The Body Shop.

    I have this waiting to be opened! I love the Body Shop Vitamin E toner so I was hoping the face mist should be good! Too bad it doesn’t do much for you. I prefer using these types of mists BEFORE I apply skincare in the mornings – the moisture really helps serums and moisturizers to bind to the skin.

      It’s funny you should say that because I tend to use this before applying my makeup rather than afterwards as a setting spray 🙂 it’ll be interesting to see what you think of this once you’ve tried it!
