Bio-Essence's latest product, the Miracle Bio Spring Water, is touted as having soothing, anti-irritation and calming effects on the skin. It's Bio-Essence's latest try at facial mists and sprays, although Bio-Essence also mentions that you can also use this as a hair mist, too.
When I tried it, I did find that it did moisturize and refresh my skin, but only temporarily. Like other face mists, this won't replace a daily moisturizer, but is a great way to cool off or just refresh yourself. I'm not sure if I counted "20 Excellent Efficiacies for face, hair and body" as the packaging claims though - to me it was neither better nor worse than any other facial mist I've tried.
When I looked at the ingredients, I saw that there was really just water, and nitrogen. The nitrogen is a propellant, and can also be found in other spray can systems, most notably in the food industry (e.g. cans of whipped cream also use nitrogen for a propellant). Nitrogen is an inert element (fun fact: 78% of the air we breathe is nitrogen! Oxygen is only 21%), so the ingredient that acts on your face is just water. So akin to splashing water on your face, I felt like this product did help to perk up my skin in the short run, but in the long run, I'm doubtful whether it really does everything the advertising claims. I think, like a commenter below mentioned, the best use of this product would be if you were travelling and wanted a quick pick-me-up.
So, would I recommend this? Well, if you're looking for a refreshing face mist, and something to boost your skin's hydration temporarily, and that feels great on the face, then I'd recommend this. It's a good facial mist, and affordably priced, so if you're keen on the product, it's worth checking out. But beyond that, my expectations for any long-term skincare benefits are moderated.
