When it comes to mists I’m really more of the lazy type. I know how refreshing the feeling is when you spritz some good quality mist on your face and sometimes I use mists as replacement of my toner. I must admit that I was primarily intrigued by the packaging design of the SanDaWha Camellia Flower Hydrating Mist, which was provided to me for reviewing purpose from W2Beauty. But it was also another chance for me to try to use mists more often in my skincare routine.
SanDaWha is a natural cosmetics brand from Korea. Its products are free from mineral oils, free from alcohol, free from animal based ingredients, synthetic perfume and fragrance free, and free from artificial pigments and artificial preservatives. From the high quality plant-based ingredients Camellia flower is their key ingredient. Camellia japonica is a member of the tea family and grows naturally in Korea and Japan, where it is also known by the name “Dongbaek” (Korean) or “Tsubaki” (Japanese). The oil from the Camellia flower is widely used in asian cosmetics and has moisturizing properties.
The SanDaWha Camellia Flower Hydrating Mist is a multi-purpose mist designed for refreshing and relaxing you, but also as replacement for toner, or even to be used as makeup-fixer. Also, if you need some glow and fresh-up throughout the day this mist does a good job.
The SanDaWha Camellia Flower Hydrating Mist comes in a beautiful pinkish-red spraying bottle made from hard plastic and a red metallic part around the cap. It contains 80 ml and is the size of my hand regarding its height. Maybe you would not consider it travel friendly in size, but it is definitely not heavy or too large either. The backside of the bottle contains English and Korean descriptions of how to use the product and what it is, but the ingredients are only listed in Korean. Yet, I found the English ingredients listed on W2Beauty:
Camellia japonica Flower Extract (92.52%), Licorice root extract, Green tea extract, Pea protein, Pea extract
You can also check Skincarisma for the ingredients analysis. As you can see the list is short and to the point. Exactly what I want a mist to be like. The main part of the mist is the Camellia japonica flower extract, which gives the product also its name. The licorice, green tea and pea extracts are a plus.
Oh, and look at this little detail on the cap of the mist! A single Camellia flower! So beautiful, isn’t it?
The mist comes out very finely when you push down the nozzle. First, you will recognize a nice flowery scent of the Camellia flower, which is lightweight and not overpowering. A hint of the scent will remain, but it won’t be really noticeable too much any longer once the product is absorbed and dried down. It absorbs very fast and doesn’t leave a sticky scent, neither a film. Of course, a mist always feels refreshing and relaxing once you apply it on your face. I love to use them on hot summer days. In winter, a mist replaces either my toner, or I use it to fix my makeup, especially if it is very powdery or matte and I want some glow instead. This mist works well for that, since it is a very fine mist.
If you are one of those people who use mists very frequently and love that refreshing feeling throughout the day the SanDaWha Camellia Flower Hydrating Mist could be a nice choice. I love the fact that it contains only very few ingredients and all of them are plant-based. That means it is vegan and doesn’t contain any additives. Since it doesn’t contain any preservatives though, you have to keep in mind to use it up quickly before it gets bad. The mist is also very fine, which makes it suitable for fixing makeup.
At W2Beauty the SanDaWha Camellia Flower Hydrating Mist retails for 16 US$ (currently there is a 40% brand sale though and it sells for only 9.60US$).
