Review: Evian Brumisateur Facial Spray

I've seen this product many times on drugstores and supermarkets, but I thought it was some edible product and wonder why such product comes in a spray can and expensive price. Stupid, huh? Until some friend told me how this worked on her as a setting spray as well as making her face look matte the whole day.
 
 
 
The spray comes in a handy white spray can with matte transparent pink cap. There are three sizes available: 50 ml, 150 ml, and 300 ml. Each size comes in slightly different can design. I purchased the smallest one for trial purpose.



What it claims:
 
Natural Hydration
The exquisitely fine mist produced by evian® Brumisateur® penetrates and rehydrates the upper layers of the skin. evian® water has a unique mineral balance along with exceptional purity which suits all skin types, even the most sensitive. Leaves skin looking healthy and feeling refreshed. Dermatologically tested.
 
Beauty
A light misting sets and revives cosmetic colors throughout the day. This allows the skin to be re-hydrated several times without removing makeup. And this is why evian® Facial Spray helps improve the performance of all color cosmetics. Many make-up professionals prefer evian® Spray to dilute and blend make-up.
 
Baby
Perfect for gently cleansing baby’s sensitive skin (bottom, face and hands), with or without cotton pads. The leak-proof canister is suitable for the nursery or diaper bag! Babies love the fine cooling mist of hypoallergenic, pH neutral evian® Facial Spray. Tested under pediatric control, and used in maternity hospitals.
 
 
 
 
Judging from the ingredients, it's just plain water.
 




How to use:
Just spray it, but for a reason I just don't push the spray to its maximum since there'll be too much product waste.

I simply love this. From curiousity to one of must have item in my drawer, even in my makeup bag. After washing my face I would spray a small amount onto the whole face (my face felt smooth and fresh instantly!), and wait until it completely dries, and began my skin care and makeup routine. And that small additional' routine helps my makeup stay in place and reduce the oily face appearance, even when I wear makeup products that tend to make your face more greasy. From what I read on the can, you are suggested spray, and wait for several minutes, and gently dab your face with tissue, which I prefer not to. Because I thought it'll be a waste of product, so I'll just wait patiently until it completely dries.
 
I also spray enough amount onto my foundation or kabuki/powder brush before blending the foundation or face powder and the result was better compared to when I use dry brushes.
 
From several reviews I read and watched, this also works as a setting spray. Just spray some amount after you put your whole makeup on. I did this a couple of times and the result was great, but please becareful because not all of makeup product can be treated this way. I once sprayed this after Maybelline Clear Smooth Cake Powder application and the result was amazing, but different thing happened to when I wore Viva Compact Powder since the product made my face powder clump on several places. Talk about looking ugly, duh? I don't know what specs can help you differentiate which product works well with this, and which doesn't, so I prefer not to spray this after makeup application.

Overall:
Great one for those who looks for a multi purpose product with reasonable price.
 
Price:
IDR 70K something. I forgot as usual. Or USD 7 on its official web. I bought this on Guardian drugstore.
