I like to keep a facial spritzer on my desk to refresh & hydrate my skin throughout the day. Such products may be most readily associated with the hot summer months but I feel that they're equally beneficial when factors such as central heating are taking their toll on skin. I've recently been using Face Matters All Day Spritz and wanted to share my thoughts.
Face Matters All Day Spritz is described as an intensive & innovative pure collagen-boosting spritz to transform & revitalise skin, leaving it looking fresher, smoother & much firmer.
On first impressions, the minimalist packaging isn't the most exciting although it does reflect the emphasis on results rather than unnecessary additives. The matte white outer box with grey & silver writing looks clinical and would be unlikely to appeal to me if I saw it on a shop shelf, whereas the spritzer bottle inside looks far more luxurious (whilst still having a simple design).
Face Matters All Day Spritz is presented in a weighty, frosted glass bottle. It's sufficiently transparent to be able to tell how much product is remaining, which I appreciated. Whilst the 100ml bottle is technically travel-friendly, I feel that the weight of the bottle & the fact that it's made of glass mean that it's not suitable for travel or carrying in a handbag for on-the-go use.
The packaging doesn't feature any directions for use but I was pleased to note that the ingredients list was short.
Given the name, "All Day Spritz", I had expected quite a fine mist but the spray is rather concentrated & needs to be held at arm's length to deliver an even spray which won't leave the skin drenched. That said, it is refreshing to use and nonetheless, worked well over makeup.
The facial spritzer doesn't have any discernible fragrance which ties in with the Face Matters "no unnecessary additives" philosophy and could make it a good choice for those with sensitive skin. I have to admit that personally, I'd have found it more indulgent to use if it incorporated an aromatherapeutic scent.
At £50 for 100ml, Face Matters All Day Spritz is one of the most expensive facial spritzers I've come across. Price per ml, it exceeds Omorovicza and is only £5 cheaper than Creme de la Mer's version.
Whilst Face Matters All Day Spritz is pleasant enough, I simply wasn't wowed by it and as such, couldn't justify a repurchase, particularly at such a high price point.
