Price: INR 225 for 100ml

Available at Fabindia stores and a few online stores.

My experience:

This was a totally random purchase made while shopping for kurtis at Fabindia. I really like trying new face packs but I’ve never finished any as I get bored with them 😦

This pack claiming to have haldi chandan attracted me and I bought it thinking it’ll be perfect for the upcoming summers 😛

So did it live up to my high expectations?

Review : Fabindia Bitter orange facial spray

Fabindia bitter orange facial spray.

(image from fabindia website)

I bought this facial spray some time back in August.

It’s basically a face mist and well, I’m in love with it so much so that I keep spraying it on my face all the time.

According to Fabindia’s website,

Made with bitter orange essential oil, this facial spray has a cooling effect that instantly rejuvenates and refreshes you.

Ingredients:

Purified Water, Polysorbate 20, Glycerine, Phenoxyethanol, Allantoin, Bitter Orange Essential Oil.

Price: INR 150 for 50ml.

It has a shelf life of 1.5 yrs but I’m sure you will finish it much much before that.

Available at all Fabindia stores and online at most of the e-shopping stores.

My experience:

It comes in a very cute spray bottle and I’ll admit initially I bought it only for the bottle 😛

It’s a light orange coloured liquid and the spray dispenses just the right amount in 1 spray.

I use this product in 2 ways –

1) Spraying some on a cotton ball and dabbing it on the face and neck.
2) Holding the bottle about 10-15cm from my face and spraying it. Aah the feeling! J

This spray instantly refreshes me, true to its claims. It has a cooling effect. I use it at about any time of the day and besides making me feel fresh, it also gives the skin a kindof dewy feel and look.

It also has a delicious fragrance. I can smell fresh oranges in this. I keep spraying it on my face just for the smell. Hehe. And I feel that its fragrance is not at all synthetic like some other products.

So, if you like oranges then this is a must buy for you.

One of its major con is that it should not be used when you’re out in the sun.

I read this here.- Phototoxic, do NOT apply before exposure to sun or tanning beds. Avoid in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Because of this, I use this only when I’m at home.

Also, this spray tastes bitter, but well they’ve told us that in the name itself. So try not to let it get into your mouth even by mistake. It went into my mouth once and well eeewww, I just spat it our instantly.

But overall this is a wondeful product, for me it even does the job of cheering me up because of its lovely fragrance.

I feel like a happy child with a new toy when I spray it on my face and the heavenly fragrance surrounds me. J

I looked up bitter orange essential oil on google and found these links-

Hope they’re useful .

Why you’ll like it-

1) It has an instant cooling effect.
2) It smells of fresh oranges.
3) It is very refreshing to use after a tiring day.
4) Very convenient packaging. Can be carried around easily in a handbag.
5) The spray bottle is of great quality and can be reused later.

Why you’ll dislike it-

1) It’s a little pricey.
2) It cannot be used when out in the sun.
3) It has a bitter taste.

To buy or not to buy?

Definitely buy!! I would totally recommend it to everyone. You’ll love it J

My rating:
9/10
