Scent? It's unscented I think. It smells...clean?

Length of use? Since early July. It lasted me about 2 months.

My Experience: First off, I love the color of this mist. It's a gorgeous emerald hue. I don't mind at all that it's unscented. It is by far the most refreshing mist/toner I've tried. I can also fully recommend it for a sunburn! About a month ago, my family came to visit and we spent all day long outside. I was such a dummy and didn't put sunscreen on my legs or arms, so by the time we got home, I was properly burnt. I sprayed all of my burns generously with it and slathered on the aloe vera. The mist felt cooling and paired with the aloe, my sunburns had gone from bad to "it's-there-but-doesn't-hurt" by the time I woke up the next day. My one complaint about this mist is when I spray it on my face, it stings my eyes. I close my eyes when I mist my face (who doesn't?) but it didn't matter. I'd have to keep them shut until the stinging subsided. So I started using it on cotton pads and that is how I would recommend it to be used! I like that technique way more because I still get the refreshing effect but also a second cleanse of sorts. No stinging eyes either! It feels great on an inflamed pimple too. I've just held the soaked cotton pad on them for a couple minutes and while no results were immediate, I think it helped with the inflammation and heat. My décolletage is very sensitive, more so than my face, and this stuff didn't bother it at all. The only negative when using it on the cotton pad is that the product doesn't last as long. As for hydration? I would say it does a good job at hydrating, although more so when used as a mist.

Overall: I think this is a solid toning mist. It's hydrating and gives a nice second cleanse when used on a cotton pad. It's super refreshing, cooling and is your sunkissed skin's best friend. I did receive it as a PR gift and am on the fence whether I would purchase it for myself in the near future. It is a good hydrating mist and is the most refreshing one I've tried to date, however it stung my eyes when I sprayed it on.

I think I'm going to wait for next summer until it's in my bathroom again or going on a sunny vacay.
