There’re so many cosmeceutical spray brands in the market, each claiming that their product contain active spring water, volcanic water or mineral water, leaving the consumers all in a muddle. But what is exactly the difference between those bottles? So, I chose six of the most popular cosmeceutical sprays in the market and compare them in terms of the smooth degree of the spray, the moisture content of skin, sticky degree, pH and skin condition.


LA-ROCHE POSAY| URIAGE| Avène| Caudalie| Vichy| Evian

Evaluation Method

1. I describe them according to the rationality of the spray design, the spraying intensity and range.

2. Moisture testing method: I measure the original moisture content of the skin first, then the instant moisture content after spraying them on the skin.

3. Sticky degree testing method: Dry the dorsum of the hand before applying the spray, then dip the sponge particles after the hand fully absorb the spray.

4. pH testing method: Apply the spray on the pH test paper and compare them with standard color chart.

5. Skin condition evaluation method: Compare according to the smooth degree of the skin.

Face Spray & Hydrating Mist Product Test Summary

1. In term of nozzle design, intensity and range, the La Roche-Posay spray obtains the largest range, while Caudalie has the highest and farthest spray injecting intensity; it takes a little effort to press the nozzle of Uriage and Evian spray, the rest are similar.

2. In term of moisture degree, the AVENE has the largest instant moisture difference, indicating the most substantial water replenishment effect among these six sprays.

3. In term of sticky degree, Evian>Vichy= Caudalie> La Roche-Posay>Uriage>AVENE, meaning that AVENE is the least sticky one that imposes the best refreshing effect on your skin.

4. In term of pH, Vichy> La Roche-Posay=Uriage=AVENE=Evian> Caudalie, Vichy is slightly alkalinity, and Caudalie is the only slightly acidic spray.

5. In term of skin condition, AVENE sooths your skin best given the fact the recede of the reddened area was the most significant, to my naked eyes, there’s not much difference among the rest.

On relieving sensitive skin at the season-changing period, AVENE presents the best effect, whose price is more or less similar to the other two relieving-orientated brands (La Roche-Posay, Vichy), thereby, I recommend AVENE to you.

If your skin is not sensitive and you don’t call for relieving sensation, then Uriage, whose price is comparatively low, would be your good bargain.
