Rose Facial Mist (MAC Fix + Rose) Review & Recipe: Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Rose Facial Mist (MAC Fix + Rose): For those of us who were lucky enough to get to try MAC's Fix + Rose and are soooo sad that we have ran out, here's an alternative. Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel & Thayers Alcohol Free Cucumber Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera. The ingrediants are so simular. The only two main ingrediants that the Fix + Rose has that the Thayers mixture doesn't have is Green Tea & Matricaria/Camomile Extract. I was a little put off by this, knowing how great these ingrediants can be for the skin. But, after doing some detailed research I found out that Aloe Vera contains just about the same minerals, vitamins, etc. as the missing ingrediants, and preforms the same job as they do. Actually, the Aloe Vera is even better and has more skin benifits than Green Tea and Camomile combined. Amazing. This can be used before you apply your makeup to give a moisturized base, as a setting mist after your foundation is applied, or you can drop a bottle in the frig for a refreshing recharge in the hot summer months.

Now, lets talk price. The regular price of MAC's Rose Fix + was $19.50 USD. That means that this stuff is $5.74 per ounce. I was lucky enough to find mine at the CCO for $13.75 USD, still $4.04 per ounce.
The Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel is $9.95 for a 12 oz. bottle on the Thayers web-site, which brings it to $0.82 per oz. The Thayers Alcohol Free Cucumber Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera is the same price for the same amount. You can find these at you local GNC for a little cheaper too, but just incase you can't find it this is what the maximum price would be. You can pick up a 12 oz. bottle of destiled water for about $3 just about anywhere. The destiled water is $0.25 per ounce. So, since we are using 1 oz. of each product in each 3 ounce bottle of mist, the price per bottle is around $1.89 per 3 ounce bottle. Now that's what I'm talking about! You will have enough product to make 12- 3 oz. bottles of mist for $23.00. That's damn near the same price as one bottle of MAC's Fix + Rose.

Do you love it? Give it a try. Please comment and let me know what you think about it.
