How's everyone doing? :D
The weather is extremely hot and humid these days, I am more than happy to stay indoors where there's AC. I like warm weathers but it feels really sticky outside. =.=;
Anyways, some of you lovely readers have been requesting for the review of the the Etude House I'm Blooming facial mist in my last haul, so I'll be reviewing this first! :)
This is the second facial mist I have tried, first being the Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist, so I will be comparing some aspects to it.
Please read on to see my review and photos!~
I love how it comes in a box, just like the I'm Blooming cleansers.

The sides of the box listing full English ingredients. One thing I love about the I'm Blooming line is that it contains predominantly natural ingredients, and is gentle on sensitive skin.

One bottle contains 150ml, since the Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist has already lasted me more than 6 month and only has 100ml, this mist is going to last a long time! :D
Regular spray nozzle.
Sprayed on hand.
(No makeup) Before and 5 hours after facial mist, sprayed 3 times during the 5 hours.
The one thing I don't particularly like about this mist is the spray nozzle, the mist is fine, but compared to the Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist, the mist can be a bit clumpy, if that makes sense. I can feel some large droplets getting sprayed on my face, and the spray angle is smaller than the Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist too, so instead of two pumps, I need to use three to mist my whole face.
It does have a quick cooling sensation right after misting, but not as much as the Skin Food Facial Ice Vita Mist and wears off quickly. I do like that it is absorbed by the skin quickly too.
I'm quite impressed with the sebum control of this mist! During warm weathers like right now in Canada, my skin tends to be on the oily side, especially on my nose, and it's always the first part to get shiny. I used the spray once in the before photo above and then two more times during the 5 hour period, and I have to say it really does have good sebum control (oil is a result of sebum build up). Normally my nose and T-zone would be much oilier than the after photo, even with powder, my nose would get oily very quick in the summer. I was skeptical at first that a mist would help with oil control, but I'm gad this has noticeable effects.
The scent is very mild, almost unnoticeable at first. I'm not sure what the scent is of exactly, but it's sweet, I'm guessing it's green tea scent?
On one hand I like strong scents when they are pleasant smelling products, on the other the mildness of this mist sticks to the organic and natural theme of this product, and is less likely to irritate sensitive skin.
I think this is a great facial mist, and does what it says; controls sebum, contains natural ingredients, and is mild on the skin. It feels really nice to have a blast of cool mist especially during the summer times. It can be misted before and after makeup. I would recommend this to people with oily skin and people with sensitive skin.
- Quick cooling sensation
- Controls sebum
- Natural ingredients
- Not heavily scented
- Gets absorbed by skin quickly
- Mist is not as fine as it could be
- Mist area is quite small
- Bulky, not travel friendly
Have you tried this or the Deep Moisture or the Brightening mist?
I actually want to try the other two mists as well, since I am quite impressed with this one. Maybe I'll get the Deep Moisture mist for the winter. :D
Thanks for reading!
Hope this was helpful or entertaining in some way. :)
I'll have a BB cream review up next so please look forward to it~
See you next post ^^
