Price: $12
Where to Buy: Sephora

Using It:

You can mist the spray anywhere on your body, from your hair to your feet, but the extra boost of hydration is best saved for the face and neck. Spray on a clean face before your skincare routine, or before makeup for extra hydration. You can also mist the face throughout the day to add a hydrating boost.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater Review:

I’ve been hearing about this spray for years and never fully felt compelled to grab a bottle. When I received it as a gift, however, I started using it right away. It has a pleasant rose scent, so if you love rose-scented products, this little bottle will be your jam. You’ll most likely spray it every few minutes to savor the scent.

I found the aloe juice exciting since it’s a miracle skin product, and I personally nurture an aloe plant at home for its magical leaves. The spray feels luxurious and refreshing, though I don’t notice a difference in the level of hydration after spraying it on. I wouldn’t use it as a hydration booster, rather a step before my moisturizer to add a level of dewiness before sealing it in. I typically wash my face, spray this on, and seal the moisture with a moisturizer. Alone, it does nothing for me.

I can see the product helping long, drying plane rides, but for everyday use, it’s just a nice refresher that doesn’t quite live up to its miracle hype.
