Benton Honest TT Mist Review

Benton Honest TT Mist Review
Hey Dreamers and Creators!

Michelle here. You guys know I've been on the hunt for awesome mists to add to my routine. Since reviewing my well liked Innisfree mist, the Canola Honey Jelly mist, I've been able to try 2 more mists. Today, I will share my thoughts on one of them and that is this Benton Honest TT Mist. I've only tried one other Benton product in the past and it didn't perform as good as I had hoped. However, I decided to give this brand another chance because a brand should not be defined by 1 not so good product.

This Benton Honest TT mist is fairly new and came out a couple of months ago. What attracted me to this mist is the main ingredient, which is tea tree leaf water. Tea tree is known to help heal acne and soothe the skin. As someone with acne prone skin that's also sensitive, this sounded like a good potential to have on hand.

Product Description: A facial mist containing 85% tea tree ingredient. Tea tree has been used to soothe and relieve irritated skin and help to heal acne. The mist contains low stimulation ingredients to care for damaged skin without irritating it. Which makes it good for sensitive skin types. The mist can also provide good moisture to the skin and help improve skin's barrier.

To Use: Hold the mist about 30cm away from the face and spray evenly over the face.

Ingredients: Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf water, sodium hyaluronate, Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) extract, butylene glycol, aloe barbadenisis leaf juice, glycerin, althaea rosea root extract, aloe barbadenisis leaf extract, beta-glucan, poly glutamic acid, aspalathus linearis extract, portulaca oleracea extract, psidium guajava extract, zanthoxylum piperitum fruit extract, pulsatilla koreana extract, usnea barbata (lichen) extract.

Please Do Not use if you are sensitive to any of its ingredients.

Packaging: I feel like all of the Honest line's products have this clean cut look. The cleanser I tried before this has the same sort of packaging. It's simple but it isn't bad. I like that it came with information, directions, and ingredients in English. I'm not a big fan of the mist's container. It's very long yet squishy. I fear that I'll accidentally squish it too hard when I'm spraying and it'll pop or something. Although, that hasn't happened yet. It is skinny though, so it can fit inside most of my purses without taking up too much room. I just wish it came in a sturdier bottle.

Scent: It might just be me, but I couldn't pick up any scents from this mist. Not even the tea tree scent I was expecting.

Texture: Liquid.

Color: Clear.

My Thoughts: The first thing I did when I got this was to patch test. The product has minimal ingredients and none of them looked like they would cause any issues. However, it's better to be safe than sorry. 

This mist passed my patch test but during the patch test I learned something about this mist that I don't like. Its spray top is not so great. If I thought Innisfree's Honey mist wasn't as fine as it could be, then this would be like raining bullets. Actually, this felt like large droplets hitting my face when I sprayed it. It didn't give that mist like feeling at all. When looking at my face after I spray the mist, you can definitely tell that it's droplets. I always have to pat it in after I spray it otherwise the droplets can sit unevenly on my face. I found it works better if I sprayed it to my palms first then pat it in. Although, that kind of defeats the purpose of a spray.

Aside from the spray issue, everything else about this mist is great. It feels refreshing when I spray it on my face and a bit soothing too. The mist absorbs fairly quickly and doesn't leave behind any sticky feelings. It provides a moisturizing effect, although only for a while. It also helps to reduce redness a bit, which is nice. If the mist came with a better spray top, I think I'd like it more. 

Spray top isn't that great, comes out as droplets instead of mist like.

-relieves irritated skin
-can help heal acne
-can help to reduce redness

-not a fine spray, more like droplets instead of mist

My Rating: ❤ ❤   

Final Thoughts: I'd probably like this mist more if not for its not so awesome spray top. I wish I could transfer the product into another better sprayer. Except, I can't because this mist comes in a vacuum container so I can't twist off the top. 

Would I purchase this in the future? Eh. Unless they change that spray top to something better, I think I will pass. Do I think this is worth a try? For its price, this is a decent mist. The spray top still stinks, but if you don't care for a fine mist and is looking for a mist that's great to care for troubled skin, then this is worth a try.

  1. Is there a way to remove the top part and refill it with something else after its been used up?

    1. Hi~ Unfortunately, there's no way to remove the spray nozzle for the Benton Honest TT Mist.
