REVIEW: Becca Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder

Packaging - 5 (excellent)
Scent - 5 (excellent)
Hydration - 6 (incredible)
Wear - 4 (very good)
Longevity - 4 (very good)

I am so obsessed with this product. It is innovative and different, and I am truly impressed by it. Let me jump into the breakdown.

The packaging is stunning, as is to be expected from Becca. It has a clear, sturdy plastic jar, with a silver finished lid that has the brand name stamped into it. The inside of the package has a netted opening that allows you to dip in and get powder without over doing it. It also has a plastic closure that comes down to protect your powder so it doesn't spill out or have to much come up when not in use.

It is pretty scentless, although I do detect a tiny hint of vanilla when I use it, but it is hyper subtle. What's crazy about this powder is how hydrating it is. It's been called "wet powder" online, and that's honestly accurate. It gives me a very hydrated look and feeling, and doesn't dry out, my already dry skin! It also works great after a long day of work to touch up my look by revitalizing my skin and smoothing out and blurring my makeup after it has settled.

When I put it on it definitely doesn't last 24 hours or anything crazy. I need to reapply about half way through the day, but that's all.

As far as longevity, I don't feel a little goes an abnormally long way, but you don't have to use a ton either. A lot of other gurus were criticizing that the container looks like it is half empty, and that there is a minuscule amount of product in it. I went ahead and checked that out. It comes with .35 ounces of powder. After looking at other high end brands that have both pressed and loose powders, that is on the high side of average. Most are .3 ounces or less, while a few have more like .35, .4 and even one brand had .5 ounces. But they are the exceptions it would seem.

Overall I am super impressed with this item, and I am super happy to have added it to my regular routine.
