Etude House Dust Cut Facial Mist

Meet my handbag essential! I whipped it out when the haze started shrouding everything and have yet to put it down - obviously, since the haze is worsening. Initially, I thought that the whole Dust Cut line was a load of rubbish a way to fleece fans until I came across the video below:

Name: Etude House 에뛰드하우스 Dust Cut Facial Mist 더스트컷 페이셜 미스트
Price: ₩ 9,500 for 150 ml
Made in: Korea

The Dust Cut Facial Mist claims to protect the skin from the onslaught of today's environmental pollutants. The instructions do not mention whether it is to be sprayed under or over makeup, but I think using it as the final step when all else is done makes the most sense since it is supposed to form a protective veil.

The nozzle does not give the most delicate of sprays so there won't be much fine misting to be done. I will instead be greeted with rain like droplets. Fine, I jest, it is finer than that... still, I hold it at arm's length (to be more precise, 20 cm away) so that it does not have the chance to muss up my inch thick cement wall layer of foundation.

I can actually feel my skin tautening upon contact, which is apparently a sign that the mist is working its magic. And it is not far fetched to say that it also nourishes while it shields my skin against the haze particles – seeing as it is filled to the brim with plant based ingredients.

It is simply impossible to go wrong with this mist, what with it being 5-free (mineral oil, benzophenone, silicone oil, triethanolamine and sulphate) and all. I like love it a whole lot! The last I checked, it was sold locally for RM 73 but the price may have gone up due to the ever depreciating ringgit.

Great review! <3 I actually got this the other day and I love it too! I totally agree with you though, the nozzle needs some work... I keep expecting a fine mist to come out, but I seriously get huge squirts instead haha.
