[Review] Shu Uemura Depsea Water

Today I am going to review the Shu Uemura Depsea Water in Rose. The rose one seems to be the most popular, even now I just checked Shu Uemura's UK website and the rose one is the only one that is sold out. The other scents in this range include: Mint, lavender, rosemary and fragrant-free. I got mine from the little boutique store in Covent Garden although I did check Selfridges a couple of times because it was more convenient for me however they were sold out and wouldn't be stocking up anytime soon. Taken from the Shu Uemura website the product information says:

"Eight herbal aromas formulated with Depsea Water provide a refreshing feel with a fine mist that gently wraps the skin. New pump update achieves a finer mist for enhanced comfort. Suitable for all skin types."

Ingredients: Sea Water, Methylparaben, Linalool, Parfum/Fragrance

My thoughts: I actually bought this back in summer and it didn't seem to do anything for me however I recently started using it again. The thing about combination skin is that it tends to get drier in the winter seasons and for me it got really dry! So I had to switch up my skincare routine and one of the things I changed was the Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 which is way too harsh for winter to the Shu Uemura Depsea Water which I am now using as my toner. I can actually tell that it is moisturising my face as the dry patches disappear. It is not a miracle product (I don't think that exists) but it certainly helps me keep moisturised and is a gentle alternative, also I save on cotton pads since you can just spray/mist it on. The smell isn't too overpowering either which is another plus. I would say the downside is the price which is set at £16.50 for a bottle. However there is a 20% Christmas Shopping Evening at Covent Garden coming up on 1st December 5-9pm ^^! And you can register for a ticket here: Sevendials Covent Garden
