Review | Benton Honest TT Mist


Hello everyone, happy New Year!

I hope 2016 started off on a good day for you. I went on a cross-country road trip with my dad during winter break, and now that I've been back a week and school has started (sadly) it's time to get back to work.
What I would give for break to last for a whole month... haha.

Today's review is on a relatively new product from Benton, the Honest TT Mist. This product is part of Benton's Honest skincare line, which so far consists of only a cleansing foam and this mist. According to Benton, products in their Honest line use honest, natural ingredients. The name is a bit strange (I mean, they can't really lie about the ingredients...) but if it works then hey who cares, right? So without further ado, let's get started with the review!

Product Information
벤튼 어니스트 티티 미스트
Name: Benton Honest TT Mist
Price: 8,500원
Size: 40ml
Description: This mist contains Hyaluronic acid and various beauty ingredients to help improve your rough and damaged skin from stress and pollution with moisturizing and cooling effect.

Ingredients: Tea Tree Leaf Water (80%), Sodium Hyaluronate (7%), Tea Tree Extract (5%), Butylene Glycol, Aloe Barbadenisis Leaf Extract, Beta-Glucan, Poly Glutamic Acid, Aspalathus Linearis Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Psidium Guajava Extract, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Lichen Extract

Just from looking at the ingredients list you can see that hardly any fillers (unnecessary ingredients that have no positive effects on your skin, and are sometimes even harmful) were used to make this mist. Instead of using regular water, tea tree leaf water was used. Also a majority of the ingredients list is composed of plant extracts, which provide antioxidants, moisture, and a bunch of other benefits for your skin.

According to CosDNA, the only possible acne trigger is Butylene Glycol with low score of 1. I've personally never had any problems with this ingredient, which is commonly seen in skincare products, so I'd say that you shouldn't be concerned with it at all.

Here is where I would usually post pictures of the box but unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the box because my mom threw it away by accident. Sigh. But I can tell you that the box is very simple and consists of black text on a matte, white background. From what I remember there was a mix of both Korean and English on there, so people who don't understand Korean can still read the information about the mist.




I think the thing that makes this mist stand out from any other mists is its packaging. Unlike most facial mists, the Honest TT Mist is packaged in a plastic tube instead of a bottle. This makes it easy to slip into any bag since it's very slim, so you won't have to deal with awkward bulges if you have a thin bag. The tube packaging also makes the mist very travel friendly, even more so than a spray bottle. I've always been reluctant to take mists out with me if I'm using a small bag because even travel size bottles can be bulky in that case. If all mists were packaged in a slim tube like this one I'd probably be using mists a lot more often to be honest. So thumbs up to Benton for thinking of using a spray tube!


When it comes to facial mists, I prefer the mist to be very fine, which this is not. If you spray the mist too close to your face it's almost like a blast of water sometimes. As long as you maintain a 12-inch (30 cm) distance though, you'll be able to avoid spraying too much on one spot of your face.


I apologize if the mist on my hand isn't very noticeable. As you can see, the spray isn't that fine and leaves visible droplets of the mist on your skin until absorbed. I always tend to overspray a little because of the nozzle, but luckily the mist absorbs quickly.

After using this mist for awhile, I can definitely say that it's refreshing and moisturizing. Possibly due to the tea tree water and extract, the mist also kind of has a soothing effect. What I like about this mist is that it's not sticky and doesn't have a scent, which makes it ideal for anyone sensitive to scents. It hasn't irritated my skin either.

My only complaint is the nozzle. If Benton made this in the tube packaging with a super fine spray, then this would be the perfect hydrating mist in my opinion to use for any occasion. However because of the not-so-fine spray, I don't really use this that much when I'm wearing makeup since I always feel like the mist might mess it up. I usually use this mist right after I've removed my makeup for the day and before I exercise, since my skin usually feels dry after using my current oil cleanser.

Another thing to note is that Benton claims that this mist is suitable for pore care, which I assume is pore tightening, but I haven't seen any positive changes to my pores since I started using this.

Overall I'd say this is a pretty good mist purely for hydrating purposes. It's suitable for all skin types, it's travel friendly, and it refreshes, moisturizes, and soothes your skin. Now if only the nozzle didn't blast me in the face with too much mist sometimes, then it'd be perfect. Just don't expect any other benefits from this mist like radiant skin, or makeup setting, because it doesn't do that.

-Suitable for all skin types
-Tube packaging, travel friendly
-Soothing and refreshing
-Scent free
-Absorbs quickly

-Spray nozzle isn't fine enough
-Doesn't provide pore care unlike it claims to
