Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray: Review

I love wearing a medium coverage BB cream as my foundation and then setting with a mineral veil powder.  I do not like cakey foundation that settles into my large pores or any fine lines.  I have been a longtime user of water for setting and perfecting my foundation, usually using a wet Beauty Blender sponge.  I had heard about the Holy Grail of makeup fixatives, Evian Natural Mineral Water spray, but did not know if I wanted to buy a aerosol version of bottled water that cost about 7 times the amount of a bottle of drinking water.  I just did not "get it."  But perhaps it was due to the fact I never realized what Evian water was capable of, its history, and I had personally never tasted it either. 

Evian Natural Mineral Water comes from the natural pure rain and snow high atop the French Alps. It is finely filtered by the glacial rock and sand near Evian-Les-Bains, France. Doesn't that sound lovely and delicate? It really does.  French water. The water contained in the spray is tested 300 times per day--that is some impressive quality control! This water has superior mineral content, more than any other water.

What I also did not know was how long this has been produced, nor did I know about how it was originally recommended by doctors for use on burn patients on scarring and abrasions.  After its popularity in France as a remarkable facial spray, it came to the United States in 1978.

I was sent a bottle of it to try, and let me tell you, it is nothing short of a spa like, beautiful experience.  I cannot imagine how wonderful it will feel this summer.  For now, I have been using it after applying my Vitamin C, Royal Jelly, and Hyaluronic Acid  serums.  Then I apply my bb cream and mineral veil, and blush.  It can be used throughout the day as a refresher for your makeup. This delicate natural mineral water facial spray is nourishing to skin and hydrates.  It is is suited to all skin types, even the most sensitive. 

I like how this is portable and leak-proof.  I took this with me when we went on a trip and the canister was a perfect makeup accessory in my bag. Evian is fully sealed from harmful bacteria and contaminants, and is "powered by pure nitrogen into millions of tiny micro-droplets".  This is Ozone safe and environmentally friendly.

It feels like a light morning mist on a spring day and is dermatologically tested and hypo-allergenic.  I think it is a fantastic product and is lasting me a long time.  I use it 1-2 times per day to prepare my skin and to brighten my colors while giving a dewy, and healthy appearance.

Here are some tips on how to use this spray, from Evian:

To create intense color: Spray your brush with evian® Facial Spray before applying colorful or metallic eyeshadow to create intense, bold colors that don’t look chalky.

Contouring and Blending:

Before blending bronzer with foundation, wet a Beauty Blender (yes please!) or other blending tool (I also use a foundation brush) with evian Spray to create an airbrushed, flawless look. You can also use evian Facial Spray to blend foundation along the jawline and neck to eliminate telltale foundation lines. 

Set your Makeup:

After applying foundation (bb cream for me) and/or powder (mineral veil), lightly mist skin with evian® Facial Spray in a circular motion to set foundation and/or powder for a more natural look.

Revive Color throughout the day:

Using evian Facial Spray any time during the day can instantly revive color to help makeup look fresh and vibrant even hours after makeup was applied. For best results, lightly mist skin in a circular motion. Can be kept in the office, gym bag, or purse to freshen up makeup after work, before a party, or any time you need a quick touch up.  I usually do not do this third application as the first 2 applications work well for me.
