If you love beauty mist then hurray, I’ve got Benton Honest TT (Tea Tree) Mist to indulge you in.
You are most likely familiar with Korean brand Benton (perhaps you’ve tried their Snail line before?) since most of the K-beauty websites carry them nowadays, even Amazon, which is amazing because Korean beauty is, without a doubt, in full force and we can’t get enough of it!
I was invited to try out Benton’s latest Honest line from RoseRosShop, one of my go-t0 eBay sellers back when I first discovered Korean cosmetics. You can pick one up for $5.22 (40ml) on their site, by the way.
So what’s the deal with the Benton’s Honest TT Mist?
First, I should point out that I’m psyched about the packaging because it’s unique and different from the usual bottled spray and because of its design, it’s a perfect handbag/clutch buddy since it’s not so bulky.
Second, this contains two of my favorite ingredients Tea Tree, in fact it’s made of Tea Tree Leaf water (and more Tea Tree Extract), which is well-known for its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, while Hyaluronic Acid helps in keeping your skin moisturize.
Now just an FYI, that if you’re going to use this, make sure to do the 10-15 inches away from your face to get that refreshing, fine mist effect otherwise, it would be like shooting yourself with a mini water gun up close.
Fragranced product doesn’t rock your boat? You’re in luck because this is unscented and feels just like water only that it’s not. In fact it’s 80% of tea tree leaf water, 5% of tea tree extract and a whollata goodness to help with hydration, balance and soothe your skin — and it’s suitable for all skin types.
While I believe that this is a fantastic refresher mist, I find that it’s not as hydrating as I’d want it to be especially for my dry and irritated skin – thanks to winter and 24/7 heating, basically. Don’t get me wrong, it does give a temporary burst of that cooling happiness relief but it gets absorbed rather quickly.
So would this work better for oily skin? That’s a possibility. With that said, I’m still using it because it does tick a few boxes for me, and in fact, I use it quite often these days and sometimes combine it with my facial oil to turn it into an instant moisturizer as part of my skincare regimen.
