A while back, this image showed up on my Pinterest feed. After reading the enthusiasm contained in the caption, I decided to file the image away for later. I thought to myself that if I ever came across the item at Marshall's, I may give it a shot.
Fast forward a few months and I just so happened to be rummaging through the aisles at a random Marshall's. There, staring back at me was a bottle of Pearl Essence Rose Water. "Cool, I thought.....but I wonder if they have the cucumber version?" Sure enough, they did! After grabbing both bottles, I made my purchase which added to my facial mist collection.
Little did I know that this facial spray would be one of my current favorites.What really drew me to this product was that cucumber water was high on the ingredient list. Cucumber water is amazing for the skin. It's loaded with nutrients such as vitamins A, B, & C, potassium, and magnesium.
More importantly, they contain silica and sulfur, which are beauty minerals. I don't come across many skin products with cucumber water as a top ingredient so I jumped at the chance.
Once home, I immediately tested my green tinted mist to formulate a first impression. Instantly, I fell in love with the scent. It's very spa-like and invigorating. Whenever I test out a new mist, I always touch my face afterward to determine if the liquid is simply wetting my face or if it's actually hydrating/moisturizing it.
Once my skin soaked in the liquid, it left behind the nicest hint of moisture. This is probably because of the glycerin and aloe. Oh, did I also mention that the cucumber mist also contains witch hazel? As we now know, witch hazel is a major beauty secret for dealing with acne breakouts. A short time later, I peeked at the mirror again only to realize that the cucumber left my skin with the most amazing, natural looking flow. I wasn't expecting that at all. This sealed it for me. I was in love.
Not only does it contain quality ingredients, but you get a lot of product for the price (a full 8 ounces). So when I posted a pic of the mist on Instagram, it was no surprise that a few of you came in the comments praising the goodness of this beauty essential. If you have a Marshall's/TJMaxx or something similar in your town, stop in and grab a bottle. Even if you aren't lucky enough to score one for under $10.00, you can find them online.
Yes, they're a bit higher in price, but when you compare to other facial mists, it's worth the investment.
