Eclos’ Aqua Balm Finishing Mist

Freeman Beauty has a special, a couple of times a year, where you can purchase a grab bag for $20. You can pick between a body care or a facial care package and the value is approximately $50. I picked face and these are the items I got…

Today’s review is on the Eclos’ Aqua Balm Finishing Mist. I purchased this, previously, last year when I found it at Walgreen’s with a ‘try for free’ rebate coupon.

The Finishing Mist costs $18 on the Freeman site. This mist is used to set your makeup as well as hydrate your skin…

It also is supposed to blur fine lines and give a healthy, luminous shine to your face. I didn’t find it to do any of those things…

In fact, after I had used up my first, purchased can of Finishing Mist, I had no intentions of repurchasing it at all. I found that the only thing I liked about the mist was how it felt when I put it on. It feels cool and quite refreshing. However, I didn’t experience any of the other benefits advertised on the package, even after using the entire product up.

The can does deliver a very fine mist, indeed…

A list of the ingredients shows many healthy items for the skin…

The directions are as easy as just pressing the top and misting it over the face…

I have used Eclos skin care in the past and, have reviewed many of their fine products before. In fact, a couple of them are my very favorite products. Eclos uses apple stem cells that, I have found, are super-nourishing to my skin. Their products have a unique fragrance that is somewhat herbal-like and I have come to enjoy. The Finishing Mist is no exception. I also like that Eclos leaves out the ‘bad’ ingredients as well…

Even though I will not be purchasing Aqua Balm Finishing Mist in the future, for now, I will enjoy the experience of using it since it feels so cooling and refreshing on my face. I find that on days that I go makeup-free, it is a pleasant refresher to use during the day.haul swatches eotd 041 Have you tried Eclos products before? Do you have one that you like?

  • Shelley Polarbelle

    I really love the Eclos cleanser. Mild yet effective.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I have it too and yes, it is very nice. I love their scrub. It stays in the shower. 🙂

  • Gab bags are awesome!! I have not tried this before!!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I got the one thing I was hoping I wouldn’t get with the mist, though. But, I will make the most of it.

  • I love that cool feeling from a mist in the summer when the heat is so brutal!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I used to do this first thing when I got into the house after I ran when I lived in Florida. I don’t really need it here in Colorado. 😉

  • I like mists like that for hotter weather!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I did that a lot when I lived in Florida. I haven’t done it much at all living here in Denver.

  • MyBeautyJunction

    I love finishing mists, but you’re right, a number of them claim to have so many benefits, such as wrinkle reduction.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I think I need something much stronger than a mist to say any of those changes.

  • Aleya Bamdad

    I simply never got around to trying a finishing mist but it sounds great.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      My favorite is elfs, so far. I’m trying to invent my own, though!

  • I LOVE finishing mists! I’ll have to check this one out!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I will be curious to hear your opinion. 🙂

  • Ange

    Ohh I love Eclos products. I’d love to try the mist!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Let me know what you think, OK?

  • I have never tried Eclos but I love a good mist. But dang…why make such huge claims if they can’t deliver? Booooo!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      You’ll love this, Miss B, for the feeling of refreshment alone, being in Florida. 🙂

  • cindyprimebeauty

    I haven’t tried this brand. I love facial mists but forget to use them!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I’m not really recommending them. However, every skin type is different and you could see the results they claim.

  • I have a mist by Bioelements that I love!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Ohhh, thanks for the recommendation, Doll!!!

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I have tried eclos moisturizer in the past. It’s a decent brand, esp for the price

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I LOVE their Daily HydraPrimer!!! It has an SPF 30 and I will wear it on no-makeup days. Very hydrating AND with a good SPF….I’m in!!!

  • Sounds like a nice mist. I don’t really expect those to have any skin care benefits, I guess. I wonder how big their sample size was, or how generic the question was to get 100% of the respondents to say they saw improvement.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Truth! And, what age range were they? I am going to use this up just to get a cooling feeling on my face during the day. I didn’t find it did a thing for setting my makeup. And, that’s what I originally bought it for. At $17 a pop, I think that’s pricey!

  • I love mists that are cooling. I need to try this brand on!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Let me know if it works for you. I was so disappointed and had high hopes.

  • Norah Salazar

    I have to be honest, I don’t do mists for cooling, my #1 thing is hydration, if that’s part of the deal then yes.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      That was my original purpose for purchasing it too. 🙁

  • bummer that it didn’t hold up to what it claimed to do!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I was disappointed, greatly.

  • Justina

    It’s been a while since I’ve used this brand but I remember really liking it!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I love all the other products I have tried by them too. Their daily facial moisturizer is very luxurious!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    I’ve heard nice things about this brand, but don’t think this is for me.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      If you get a chance to try any of their other products, do so! Their primer is a favorite of mine because it has SPF 30 and is very hydrating. I also love their facial scrub.

  • I have heard great things about Eclos. I love Freeman Beauty – and have a few products I received from this brand but I’m so worried about my skin. Very interested to check it out now.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Do you have Walgreens in HI? If you do, check to see if they allow returns on makeup/beauty products and try something from Eclos.
