Review: Recipe by Nature Spray Essence Water

25. March 2014
This product was featured in my MeMeBox No. 6, which I showed previously (click >>here<<). It is a Spray Water Essence from the brand Recipe by Nature. You don’t find a lot of information about this brand on the Internet and honestly I only could find the products sold on MeMeBox shop (English) and on the brands homepage www.recipecosmetics.com, which is in Korean only. Nevertheless, this was the first product out of the box that I tried because I really love the packaging design.

As you can see the packaging design is very clean. The card box has a sketch of the spray bottle on it and the colors are yellow and white. The box only comes with Korean description unfortunately, except on the front part (click the image below to enlarge if you can read Korean and are interested) .

On the homepage of Recipe by Nature I gave Google translate a try in order to translate the ingredients at least:
 
Water, Macadamia Seed Oil, PEG / PEG -17 / 6 copolymer, jojoba seed oil, meadowfoam seed oil, big sassi oil, bergamot fruit oil, olive oil, lemon peel oil, wanggyul peel oil, orange peel oil, Atlas Cedar bark oil, lavender oil, Scented geranium flower oil, lavender water, rosemary ipsu, kkotsu chamomile, peppermint leaves, flower oil, evening primrose oil, lime oil, basil oil, barley jissi oil, Brazil nut seed oil, sweet almond oil, orange oil, ylang ylang flower oil, sunflower seed oil, Laban Dean oil, horse chestnut extract, fennel fruit octagonal / seed oil, jasmine oil, rose flower oil, wormwood extract, galvanic num resin oil, Western cheukbaek leaf extract, argan tree kernel oil, orange flower oil, balsam peru oil, glycerin (palm extraction), castor oil, PEG-60 Hydro Painted jeniyi, Butylene Glycol, rengeul pentyl glycol, squalane, arginine, by Osaka Ride sword -1, glyceryl rilka Frill rate, tocopheryl acetate, resins, balsams kopayi bar, Carbomer, ethanol, phenoxyethanol, benzyl alcohol, acetic acid dehydro
It is a water spray containing additionally to water a bunch of different natural oils as you can see in the ingredient list. It is 8-free, which means that it doesn’t contain 8 unwanted ingredients like mineral oil, synthetic fragrances synthetic dye, triethanolamine or parabens. The front of the packaging also says, that it has a water phase of 91.6 %, containing celtic water and glacial water and 4 % natural origin skin conditioning agents. The other percentages must be from the PEGs and alcohol derivates. It contains all in all 6 kinds of Charabot’s natural essential oils and 12 kinds of natural ingredients (Charabot is a company providing essential oils for the perfumes) . If you go to the product page >>here<< you will find some illustrations on the ingredients. Since it also contains oil you need to shake it before use, you’ll see how the two layers will separate and form tiny droplets within the bottle.

The actual spray bottle looks like the sketch on the packaging.

The bottle is made of sturdy see-through plastic, so you can say how much is left in the bottle. The cap is transparent and protects the spraying nozzle. When you use it it provides your face/skin with a pleasant drizzle. The spaying plus the light citrus/herbal scent  makes it feel very refreshing while using. I used this as a toner as first step of my routine and it goes well with other products. It doesn’t make the skin look greasy at all and it is nicely moisturizing.

All in all, this is a nice toner and mist. I will surely be sad when I used this up, especially since MeMeBox stops shipping internationally at the end of this month. also, I’d love to try other products from this brand, but I couldn’t find any other shop selling these.
You can buy the 140 ml bottle at www.memebox.com for US$ 9.00 (additional shipping costs will occur).

    […] the mist is super fine (a lot finer than the mist by Recipe by Nature Spray Essence >>review here<<). It has a cooling and thus refreshing feeling while applying. And it absorbs quickly into […]

    Thanks for the post, I am terrible with my skin care and really need to find something that will work for my ‘normal’ skin, I often breakout around that time of the month. I wonder if I’d have any luck with this product!
