Hello! It's been almost one week since I posted. If you read my previous post, you'd know I've been back at school. Well, I could have squeezed in a review or two. I did try but whenever I tried to take photos of or with the products, I wouldn't be satisfied with them. So I'm sorry if this post is lacking in photos!
Etude House I'm Blooming Sebum Control Mist claims to:
- contain 95.9% of green tea extract (Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract),
- hydrate skin while controlling oil and shine,
- and provide soft powdery skin.
There are three different types of facial mist in the "I'm Blooming" range: "Brightening", "Deep Moisture" and "Sebum Control". I have combination skin (oily in T-zone) so I was definitely attracted to the "Sebum Control" one. This can be used alone, before make up or after make up. I only use this on school days after I've put on my make up. While I wouldn't say the mist is fine, it doesn't come out in large droplets, as long as you hold it at least 20 cm away from your face. It sinks into the face by the next minute and doesn't leave any residue. For something that claims to contain that much green tea extract, it doesn't smell like green tea at all, or anything close to tea in fact.
Most of my make up products already help in reducing shine or oil, but I do feel that my face stays matte a bit longer with this. I really enjoy using it because my skin can look a bit dry after putting on make up. This is very refreshing and provides mild hydration for the skin.
Do note that this is not a make up setting spray. Let me know what facial mists you like to use in the comments!
