Somehow, up to today I never could convince myself to regularly use mists in my skin care. There are really many people who love mists, but so far I only used mists frequently in hot summer days in order to cool down. Still, I’m still trying to use more mists and somehow get the hang of it some day. Today’s review is about Benton’s Honest TT Mist:
The Korean skin care brand Benton did unleash a noticeable raving amongst lots of bloggers. Especially the high quality of the ingredients, without any additional fragrances or other fillers did impress most people. Also, the key ingredient in their famous Benton Snail Bee skin care line being snail secretion filtrate in first place and adding bee venom on top made it widely appalling for skin care junkies. Apart from all the raving people there were also incidents of people breaking out from the Benton Snail Bee line, and I had also a similar experience. As soon as I stopped using it my skin recovered. Nevertheless, I tried their BentonHonest Cleansing Foam a while back, which I did really like and so Benton is getting a new chance with me. Here is their newest addition to their skin care line, the Benton Honest TT Mist.
Like all Benton products the packaging is very simple. We have classy white color with some text on it. The cardboard box comes with Korean and English descriptions. The Benton Honest line is designed to have honest formulation and natural ingredients. This mist, for example uses tea tree leaf water instead of regular water. The tea tree water makes 80 % of the whole product. 5 % is tea tree extract and 7% hyaluronic acid. This leaves 8 % for the other ingredients. You can check the whole list of ingredients on COSDNA.
The purpose of the Benton Honest TT Mist is to sooth and make your skin balanced between oil and moisture. It can be used either as a toner before your skin care routine, or as a makeup fixer after you put it on. Also, mists are great to refresh yourself in-between! The difference between the Benton Honest TT Mist is, that it comes in a tube instead of a regular bottle. Benton calls it Vacuum Bottle in their advertisement.
I was surprised when I saw how travel-friendly and small it was and it is not heavy either. Instead of a regular tube opening or pump we have a spraying nozzle. Otherwise it would not be a mist, would it? The nozzle makes it possible to have a fine mist. Nevertheless, please keep in mind to use it from around 30 cm away from your face. The Benton Honest TT Mist is a watery liquid, which is unscented and transparent. Since the ingredients are very few and it contains mainly tea tree water I think that it is suited nicely for people with troubled or sensitive skintypes. The fewer the ingredients, the less is the risk of any irritation! I feel that the mist is very refreshing, but I have that feeling with all mists. My main skin concern is dryness, and I think this mist is a good moisture splash for in-between. I do not feel that it does any type of long-term moisturization, but it feels soothing.
I know that Lush has a similar toner containing tea tree water. If you are a fan of Lush’s toner you might like this one, too! I didn’t feel any difference in the moisturization level of my skin by using this mist yet, but I will definitively use it up. Will this be my all-time favourite mist? I do not know…maybe it is time for me to try out all those mists out there to see whether I can get used to it or not. The price for the Benton Honest TT Mist is super budget friendly though: it retails for 6.07 US$ at RoseRoseShop, who were so kind to offer me this mist for reviewing. What’s your favourite mist?
