Product Purchased by IMBB
Skin Type: Combination
Today, I will be reviewing a product from my favourite skincare brand – the Innisfree Aloe Revital Skin Mist. Before I begin, I would like to thank IMBB for sponsoring this product. It is a toner in the form of a mist, designed to provide intense hydration to the skin. To know more about this product and how it fared for me, read on further:
800 INR for 120 ml.
Enriched with aloe inner skin from the pure Jejuisland, aloe revital provides intensive hydration with refreshing moisture for vitality of skin.
It contains Green complex, which is a cocktail of certain ingredients sourced from the pure Jejuisland such as orchid extract, camellia leaf extract, etc. It does contain alcohol.
How To Use:
After cleansing, close your eyes and spray an appropriate amount from 20-30 cm from face. Use any time your skin feels dry or needs instant moisturization, before or after makeup.
My Experience with Innisfree Aloe Revital Skin Mist:
To start off, the packaging is very chic. It looks very naturalistic and unique. The mist comes in a plastic dark green spray bottle. It came with a plastic cover over it with a label containing information like price and ingredients. The bottle is transparent; hence the amount of mist left in the bottle can be seen. The cap is not the sturdiest; a little bit of force is sufficient to open it. Hence, I wouldn’t recommend travelling with it. The front of the bottle has basic information about the product in a lime green text, contrasting against the dark green of the bottle. It also has an opaque green design of aloe leaves along the side of the bottle. The back of the bottle contains all other information such as directions for usage, a short description of the product etc. The overall colour combination used on the bottle is pretty. The bottle is sleek, and looks very chic on my vanity.
The mist itself is a very thin, transparent liquid. Inside the bottle, the mist almost looks foamy, similar to aloe vera juice when freshly extracted. It gets absorbed into the skin at a moderate speed. The mist does not come out as a fine spray. The droplets released are quite large, owing to the lower content of alcohol. It has a mild leafy fragrance which goes away after the product has been absorbed into the skin.
I purchased this product, as nowadays, the dry heat and scorching sun have been taking a toll on my skin. I tend to look tired during the day itself despite having a good night’s sleep. I was on the lookout for a toner whose main purpose was hydration and was not necessarily mattifying or priming. I have already tried the green tea mineral mist from Innisfree and found it slightly drying, so I went for this product.
Coming to the application of the product – I use this mist as a toner day and night after cleansing. I have been using it for two weeks now, and already a quarter of the bottle is finished. I spray this liberally all over my face and fan the product in. It takes about a minute or two for it to get absorbed into the skin completely.
It does not have any mattifying effect. It leaves a slight sheen on my face, which does not look greasy or oily. It provides an instant glow and refreshes the skin and adds back the moisture lost in the cleansing step. Over time, my face tends to tire out later than it usually does. I have not used this over makeup, as I feel that the spray might wash off my makeup.
I have also used this toner for the “seven skin method” to see how it fares and my face looked plump and hydrated throughout the day.
Overall, it is a good toner for the summer months.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Innisfree Aloe Revital Skin Mist?
I would probably not be repurchasing this soon, as I am looking for a mist that is travel friendly. I would totally recommend this to people with combination skin, as this mist will provide the necessary hydration without making your skin oily or enhancing the dry patches. This will greatly suit people with oily skin. Dry skinned people may also try it, but perhaps only for the summer months.
