How to Use
Rated 4.38 out of 5 stars
When I first got this I was afraid to use it because my skin tends to be oily so it doesn't necessarily need to be very hydrated, but to my surprise, this spray didn't make my skin too shiny. I like to keep my makeup quite matte, but during the winter I feel like it tends to be too dry looking. I feel like this spray would work great for me then, but even when it's not cold, I think this spray is nice when you finish your makeup and don't want to look too matte. It gives a very natural hydrated finish so it doesn't look like you used something on top of your makeup. One plus to using this after my makeup was that it made my highlighter extra glowy after. I tried it on half my face first to have a comparison. It helps make your makeup look more seamless and sit better on the skin. I think this is also good when your skin is feeling a little dry or if you need to freshen up and spraying it and then patting off any excess or oil from your skin. I like that the scent of it isn't too overpowering. It has a slight floral scent but doesn't linger. Overall, I think its a pretty nice face mist. I don't think it helped me keep my makeup lasting longer though, but I would recommend it if someone is looking for something to hydrate or set your makeup afterwards. The mist also comes out pretty fine so it doesn't create droplets on your skin that would ruin your makeup.
I honestly don't think it's added anything special to my makeup routine. I usually like using setting sprays and have used rose water as my go to choice. But I wasn't a fan at all of this rose scent. I personally found it unpleasant and gave me a bit of a headache. The sprayer on this isn't that bad, before first use, I did a few test sprays to get the spray stream going. It produces a decent mist bubble, but sometimes I feel like the mist isn't really making contact with my face, even after a few tries. I maybe feel a tiny "damp" sensation that lets me know some of the mist made it on my face. So keep in mind that it's a gentle spray and you'll need to really lay it on when setting your makeup. I think it's more of a refresher spray I could use on really hot days and my face needs a little pick me up, but unfortunately since I'm not a fan of the scent, it deters me from using it more often. Maybe one day I'll try out the other scents they offer and see if I have better luck with them. But probably would gravitate towards my rose water spray or other setting sprays. But I'll still use this bottle up since I have it already.

I love this spray. I use it as a primer water and it keeps my skin looking like skin and not the dry mess it usually is. I am shocked that not more people talk about this because it is really good. It is also cruelty free, another win win !

This is great to use if you want your make-up to stay on

The value of this product was a complete surprise! I had 2 other "higher-end" facial sprays that only made my combination skin oily all over, so I had low expectations for this CG version. I work from home so I go without makeup most days, only wearing a good facial cream. I find myself spritzing this on whenever I brush my teeth or otherwise pass my sink where I keep it. It really works for keeping my skin refreshed and comfortable in the dry winter air without making it oily.

I wash my face and dry. Just mist this on and go. Its lightweight. Absorbs quickly. And the smell is great.

I like this setting spray I have dryer skin and this makes my makeup settle nicely , only thing is it has a odd smell not a huge fan of rose but the scent isn't too strong and doesn't really last so that's good , makes skin look dewy and fresh , I like this product so far .

I got this in a VoxBox. Honestly, it impressed me. The covergirl set spray has a rose essence that is not too strong, youll smell it when you spray in but after that it goes away which is great for me because Im not a fan of strong smells in my face. I use it before and after doing my makeup. When I tested for the first time I went to work out and afterwards my make up was still there so you can consider sorta of a primer. I always used MAC fix+ as a setting spray and it always was my favorite so I use it as base comparison.
The only downside is that the package looks cheap. Besides that, its a great product. Oh, and its vegan! No harm for animals or harmful ingredients for your skin!

I love the smell of this mist. It helps make my makeup stay on all night and its not expensive.

I wouldnt really call this a setting spray but this would definitely work as a refresher spray throughout the day. If youre sensitive to smells then this isnt the product for you, the rose scent is pretty strong. I like using it on my no makeup or light makeup days. It doesnt do much for me when I have a full face of makeup.

Very similar to MAC fix+ but with less chemicals and for a better price. The mist is fine and helps makeup adhere to the face. I like to apply this before blending out liquid foundation and find that I get a great finish that looks airbrushed when powder is applied over top. Personally, Im not a fan of scented skincare/makeup products, but the rose scent is not too strong and fades away within a minute. Its also not an unpleasant scent, and the results are so good that I still rate this a 5/5.

This product smells amazing and just keeps your skin feeling fresh and it preps your face for any make up your going to put on
palomag2 from undisclosed
I love it ... its seriously so refreshing and it makes your make up just stay on for the rest of the night ... I used it for a night out so it worked great ... its also inexpensive
kristac0399 from undisclosed
This has packaging that definitely gives off the clean beauty vibe. It smells like fresh roses and goes on super light. I did feel like I needed something stronger While wearing a full face of make up, but with just some tinted moisturizer this worked great and I felt fresh and hydrated.

I really wanted to love this because i love setting sprays and primer waters but honestly Im just not sure this does anything. Im going to continue to use this product until i run out and can form a solid review but so far its not terrible and gives a nice glow but i dont know if it does all it claims to do.
juana803819 from undisclosed
I really liked it because it moisturises my skin and I like the smell. I feel that its dispenser should be different or a little bigger, since the product leaves very direct but the rest I love it
kayleeb8447 from undisclosed
This setting spray is amazing. I spritz a bit on before and after applying my makeup and it gives me that fresh look all day long! Not only is this product great but it also smells so amazing !

I love the spray applicator, it disperses the product so gentle. This has helped give my skin a little glow and keeps my makeup lasting longer.
gymglamlaundry from undisclosed
I wasnt expecting to like this as much as I do. First off, its affordable. Second off, I like the spritzer. It does a good job of hydrating...not a great job but definitely good for everyday. I would prefer this in a fragrance-free formula, but the citrus isnt overpowering. Would repurchase.
angelicnay from undisclosed
I actually really liked this setting spray. I used it before and after my look and it made my skin look nice and dewy
abbid8f4d from undisclosed
With priming and setting sprays, its hard to tell a real difference in staying power. I wouldnt say this spray is bad, but I couldnt tell a difference. I also didnt like the scent at all. I probably would not purchase in the future!
alexamacc from undisclosed
This is more of a refreshing spray I wouldn't say it's much of a setting spray, I liked to use it throughout the day to just freshen up my make up.
jennifera79e9 from undisclosed
The mist was certainly hydrating. I dont really have much to say about this one since I feel like all setting mists are the same. This is hydrating, so I dont generally go for setting mists with that purpose because I have oily skin. The one I got was a Rose scent, and its pretty noticeable. I feel like the mister throws a nice mist, but what I have noticed is that when you spray it on your face you can feel where the mist is targeting one specific area then the rest of the mist hits the rest of your face. I tried putting the mist further away from my face it just targeted one spot of my face (it would target mainly my nose)...not sure if that made sense
