The Honest TT Mist is the first I own from the brand. From what I can tell, Benton is known for their Snail Bee and Aloe skin care. I wanted to try the Snail Bee High Content Essence, but had to put that off for another time because I still have lots of skin care to go through. I only got this TT Mist to make the most of my Grab Express delivery for a different item. 😛
Benton Honest TT Mist comes in a soft plastic tube with a spray nozzle, which I think is unique. I don’t have anything like it nor have I seen another similar. It’s great for travel because it’s not bulky and there’s only 40 ml of product. But, being it’s only 40 ml, I think it would be expensive in the long run if I keep repurchasing as a
n addicted frequent user of face mists.
The spray nozzle is not misting, so I need to spray with my arm at a good distance so my face won’t look like I splashed water on. Oh, now that I mentioned water, this is so much like it. It doesn’t have any scent too. But I noticed the effects on my skin, so I knew it’s not just water. 🙂

The Honest TT Mist claims “to help improve rough and damaged skin from stress and pollution with moisturizing and cooling effect.” Hard to say if it improved my skin because of my daily skin care routine, although it’s not cooling for me. However, it did my skin good for these reasons:
- Provides hydration to my often dehydrated face, thus my face becomes less oily especially after I retouch,
- Prevents irritation that could cause me to breakout and from worsening a forming pimple
- I don’t get redness especially when I’m out under the sun for long.
- Hormonal acne goes away at a shorter span of time.
These are thanks to tea tree water–the primary ingredient of this mist. 🙂 I will recommend this to those whose skin gets easily irritated or acne-prone. My hormonal acne goes out of control and this really helps. The days where I got bumps on my face seem so long ago now. 😆
Besides to refresh, soothe, and hydrate my face, I also use this when I need to retouch especially my oily T-zone. I blot first, spray on the face mist, let it dry, and then apply my favorite loose powder.
The amount I can only get with a tube is what keeps me from making the face mist my staple. Though I will still repurchase when I need to travel or in case other face mists I’ll try in the future don’t work.
The Benton Honest TT Mist is available at Skincare Curator at PHP 400 only. That’s where I bought mine. 🙂
