Revlon PhotoReady Prep Set Refresh Mist Makeup Setting Spray

As far as I am concerned you can never have too many setting sprays in your stash and if it doesn't more than just set your makeup, then you are on to a winner. The high street is packed full of brands who have released their own setting sprays and whilst my favourite firmly sit with both touch in SOL and of course the cult classic Urban Decay, I am still open to trying others. Until a few weeks ago, I had no idea Revlon had their own version and admittedly, Revlon isn't a brand who features much on this blog, so when it arrived through my letterbox from Superdrug, I was keen to give it a try.
Revlon PhotoReady Prep Set Refresh Mist Makeup Setting Spray

The Revlon PhotoReady Prep Set Refresh Mist comes in a 56ml bottle and is priced at £7.99 from Superdrug and whilst initially it sounds quite expensive for such a small bottle, I was prepared to give it a try and I also need a travel size option for going away for a few days and this one fits perfectly into my bag. 

Revlon state that this PhotoReady Mist is a multi-tasking product, something I am always championing and wanting to try, described as being a Triple Duty product in one spritz it works to :
  • Prime: Hydrating formula infused with botanical fruit complex, leaves skin softer and smoother. Spray before applying makeup to create a smooth, even canvas.
  • Set: Fine micro mist creates an invisible weightless veil on the skin to lock in makeup all day. Spray after application to set your freshly applied makeup look all day without fading or smudging.
  • Refresh: Refreshing cucumber scent reawakens tired skin and senses. Reapply spray throughout the day to refresh your skin and maintain a perfected finish.”

This product has a really super fine mist that manages to evenly coat your face without leaving you feeling drenched or as though you have splashed your face with one.  The Cucumber scent is definitely noticeable, but in a nice refreshing way.

Having tried this Mist to my prime my skin, I didn't find it was as good as using an actual primer. I have combination/oily skin, so I need to use a primer which can cope with that. As a setting spray, I didn't find that this fared too badly, admittedly I have used it during some of the hottest weather we have had for some time, but it did set my makeup and it did last pretty well into the afternoon.  Then when it comes to refreshing, I think this is where the strengths lie with this product, especially in the Summer heat, that kick of cucumber is just divine, especially if you pop the mist into the fridge before using it, to add a little extra coolness.

Do you have a favourite setting spray?

  1. The cucumber sounds perfect for summer - I am not huge on settings sprays or primers atm for some reason, I think it's just laziness! x

  2. I didn't even know Revlon did one. I have not used this brand in years! They have added loads to their range since x

  3. Y'know, I bet I've walked past this is store many times.
    Looks like a product I'd never seek out but once I try it, I bet I'd love it.
    Revlon are such a great brand that need to be shouted about more.
    Thanks for sharing this one, I'll certainly look for this one in future.

  4. I have never seen this before, I don’t tend to use setting sprays but this sounds really good. X

  5. All Nighter is my ride or die setting spray but I'm open to trying new ones. Revlon is a brand I don't tend to gravitate to for some reason. Although I do like their ColourStay foundation.
