Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this multitasking hydration essence to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence Energizing with Vitamin C & Bergamot to a panel of our REVIEWcrew® members aged between 18 and 40 with dehydrated, tight, agitated and dull skin. 

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence Energizing with Vitamin C & Bergamot.

The skin-loving formula: Members really loved the hydrating and revitalising effects of the mist, which left their skin glowing and refreshed with just a few spritzes.

The fine mist: Reviewers really loved that the hydrating essence came in a fine mist formula. A few of our members said it made the experience of a midday refresh feel all that more luxe. 

It’s a great multitasker: REVIEWcrew® members really liked the versatility of the product, explaining that they used the product into their skin care routine as a mist toner, a makeup finishing spray, or as a way to refresh their makeup or bare complexion throughout the day.

Good to know: Some of our members with drier skin types felt they needed to apply the essence more frequently to see a marked improvement in the hydration levels of their skin.

The verdict

“I love using this mist after cleansing my face in the morning prior to applying my facial oils/ moisturiser as a “toner”. This also refreshes my makeup after powdering - adding a dewy finish just like MAC Fix +. This spray has a very fine mist which feels extremely luxe.”

“Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence is a travel-friendly, easy to use product on the go. If you’re after a product that hydrates with a fine mist leaving you fresh and energised, this is certainly something to keep in your repertoire.”

“The Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration is a great product if you need to refresh your skin during the day, or after cleansing your skin before moisturising. The scent is lovely, and the formula is nice and non-sticky. This product is also suitable for sensitive skins which is always a plus!”
