I think it was the refreshing sounding title of this product that led me to try it out. I have combination skin so I struggle between looking dry and looking oily. Applying lotion in the morning and evening weren’t doing the trick, my makeup ended up looking stale and visible after a few hours of wear. I discovered this product and I have to say, I am in love. Tarte markets the product as a primer, setting spray, hydrating mist and skin refresher and I use the product for all four purposes. I will say that I use an additional primer and setting spray because I think this product is much stronger as a hydrating mist and skin refresher than I think it would be as a primer or setting spray. In the morning I will apply face lotion, then my traditional face primer, and then a couple spritzes of this product. Once my makeup is applied, I will again spritz my face and then use my Urban Decay setting spray for good measure. I have found myself spraying my face with this product once or twice throughout the day and it gives my skin the refresher it’s craving while also giving my makeup a second chance at life. There is nothing I like less than when halfway through the day I look in the mirror and I can see my makeup sitting on my face exposing itself to the world. The product just feels like a light mist of hydration with a subtle scent of orange peel, it’s amazing and I highly recommend everyone try this.
The 1.01 oz is the perfect size to test out at $12 you can’t really go wrong if you hate it.
The 2.5 oz is a bit more of an investment at $25 but I think it’s worth it.
