Re:cipe Spray Essence Water was featured in many previous Memeboxes, but I purchased mine from the Memehsop for USD11 (it is now selling for USD18, but they have sales every now and then). I saw many good reviews on this product, so I decided to give it a try. The Spray Essence Water is enriched with celtic water and whistler glacial mineral water; the main ingredients with nourishing vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids used to enhance the skin. This essence will hydrate and nourish your skin instantly after application!

How to use:
Shake the bottle so that the essence dissolves into the water. Spray on all over the face after cleansing the skin.

My First Face Mist...
I seldom put on makeup, but I had to put it on as I was going to attend a family friend's wedding that day. On the way there, I realised that my face (especially my nose) looked rather dry and cakey, so after doing a quick research on my phone, I went into a Clarins Shop and bought a face mist (they also gave me a travel-sized one too!), and when I sprayed it onto my face, it instantly fixed the problem! It was a really awesome spray, but when I went to repurchase it a few months later, I realised that they had already discontinued the product! So since then, I have been searching for other face mists that work just as well...

Personal Experience:
I was quite surprised to see a something which resembled oil inside the bottle, of which I think is the essence, and that's why you need to give the bottle a shake before spraying it onto your face. It has a lemon citrus scent which I don't particularly like, and the water particles are not too fine, but the mist is super moisturising! Due to the humid summer we have in Hong Kong, I only use this mist at night, just before I go to bed. We turn on our air-conditioner every night, so my face gets pretty dry at night, but this mist helps to keep my face completely moisturised throughout the entire night! I've also tried using this mist on my body - my skin felt quite dry when I was pregnant, but I didn't have any body lotion then, so I sprayed this mist onto my arms and legs, and they felt completely moisturised too! I've tried other body mists, but none felt so moisturising! I absolutely love this mist, and I purchased three more for backup! I've also heard people use this mist before applying their foundation, and their makeup adheres to their skin better!

I love spray mists as they are so convenient to use, but finding the perfect the spray mist can be quite a problem! I have combination skin with little to no pimples, and my skin can be so dry that it flakes during the winter! I usually use spray mists for a quick fix to my skin, especially on days that I'm feeling a little lazy for all the extra products!

Rating: 9/10
(it is worth 10/10, but I haven't seen them selling anywhere except the Memeshop, so they are pretty hard to get hold of, and Memeshop has jacked up their prices by quite a lot!)

  1. I ofteƱ use it after my moisturiser in the morning to add more moisture. It is a really nice spray.

  2. I really love this spray too!! I've bought 4 of them over a few orders, scared it might be sold out (it was gone from the shop a few times) then spoiler, in the luckybox, also was one inclided :D so no I got 5, I'm using this essence so much! its sad that they now costs so much, happy I never paid so much for them. Also really logic and handy thought to use it also on your body instead on only your face! :D good review! great product! :D
