Sampar Skin Quenching Mist

Pioneer of urban skincare, Sampar has an ambition: to awaken the sleeping beauty in every woman, uncovering and revealing her natural allure.

The products from this French brand are created from a combination of nanotechnology, aromatherapy and state-of-the-art ingredients to protect the skin from environmental pollutants while restoring the skin's natural barrier function.

While some mists contain only water, Sampar's version packs a punch with cornflower water, lime-blossom water, orange blossom water, lesser centaury extract, essential oil of geranium and its signature Urban Advance complex.

Listen to your instincts and let Skin Quenching Mist wrap your skin in well-being, comfort and freshness. Its barely-there texture locks in make-up and shields against outside irritants. (Source:

This daily mist tones, soothes and purifies the complexion and it is even ideal for sensitive skin types. It emits a faint rosy scent. I adore it but I know some will associate it with the classic old lady smell. Haha!

The pale pink bottle is a better fit for my vanity instead of my purse. Its size makes it a little too stubby to tote around.

The mist allows for better absorption of subsequent skincare products while imparting moisture. It also does a pretty good job in refreshing my skin at any time of the day (no more mid-day slumps!).



The spray mechanism disperses evenly without mussing my makeup. I find it hard to tell whether it helps prolong makeup wear because my makeup usually lasts the whole day with or without it.

Is it better than other facial mists? I truly enjoy the scent and the soothing sensation, however, I believe that lower priced alternatives work just as well, so I will most probably not replenish when I am done with this bottle.

Skin Quenching Mist rings in at RM 76 (100 ml) and RM 126 (200 ml), and is available at Sampar counters in Parkson Sunway Pyramid and Robinsons The Gardens.

I love the packaging with the little Eiffel Tower silhouette! You're right that it is a bit pricey for what it is though, have you tried Caudalie's skin mist before? That's the one I've really been wanting to try, everyone raves about it so much.

Beauty Elixir? I wanna get my mitts on that too! Read somewhere that even Victoria Beckham is a fan!
