Setting sprays

Vitamin E and Vitamin C face mists

Hello! its been a very very VERY long time since I did a post! terrible! Anyway.....
I thought I would do a little review on these two beauties that I have resently purchased. I took full advantage of the 3 for 2 offer the bodyshop had on skincare this month, and picked up these and a moisturiser.

I have been wanting to try a setting spray for suuuuuch a long time as I hate the cakey dry look I get with powder. I really cant go without setting my makeup as my skin gets quite oily and my makeup ends up going all patchy. Yuck! Corrie at always raves about the Bodyshop Vitamin E spray, and how it helps keep here makeup in place for the day, so I decided I would give it a go.

I am loving this stuff! It really does help keep my makeup in place and makes my skin look lovely and dewy. I spray it after I have finished applying my makeup in the morning and then spray it on my face for a refresher if I need it throughout the day. I feels lovely and cooling on my skin too which is nice. I was a bit worried my sensitive skin would take a horrible reaction to this as it has a light scent but I have has no problems with it

The Vitamin C spray is reccomended for Dull skin and is supposed to give your skin a 'pick me up'. Now to be honest I feel the first spray does that for me anyway and this one has been stinging my face slightly (damm my sensitive face) I think someone with normal skin would have no problem with this though!

I did try the ELF setting spray but really didnt enjoy it. I wanted to take a photo to add in this post but I couldnt find the bottle anywhere. It had a such an odd smell and it really really stunk my face. I found that it did help set my makeup but made my skin look really dry.

I hope this has been of help and I would really reccomend trying a setting spray if you are wanting to get away from powders.

A little love

  9. Lovely post, I really like setting sprays but have been using my Nourish Balance Apple Toner for all these sorts of things lately. I love the Body Shop Vitamin E range, so I may go into store and have a test of that soon. I agree, ELF isn't all that great, I personally have never gotten on with any of their products! x
