However, Vicky_49 wrote: “First time trying this product and although I liked it, I think I will go back to another brand. It set make-up well and was particularly good for refreshing skin during the day – but I struggled with the spray, it was quite patchy and some of the drops were always quite large and left my skin (and sometimes the shirt!) very wet. I’m not sure if this is always the case as I see some reviews say the spray was good but it was definitely a problem for me. I had the 50ml bottle which lasted much longer than expected and a very handy and compact size to keep in my bag for touch ups on the go.”
