beauty scoop | odacite divine rose & neroli balancing toner mist

While I don’t typically do “empties” posts, I will tell you that I just finished my bottle of Odacite Divine Rose & Neroli Balancing Toner Mist and am quite sad that it’s empty.

odacite divine rose & neroli balancing toner mist

{Odacite sent me a sample of its Divine Rose & Neroli Toner Mist. It costs $45 for a 4-ounce spray bottle.}

Back in March, I shared with Sarita’s readers that I liked to use Odacite’s Divine Rose & Neroli Balancing Toner Mist at night before applying Stark Skincare’s Neroli Midnight Oil.

It’s been such a heavenly combination for those weeks when my skin is behaving (which, ahem, currently, it’s not), and I’m hoping to restock the toner mist next month when I’m in Los Angeles for A Night for Green Beauty.

When it comes to toners, I have two separate needs, thus two separate collections: Moisturizing and Acne-Fighting (and sometimes there’s a toner that meets both of those needs!).

Odacite’s Divine Rose & Neroli Balancing Mist falls into the “moisturizing” category, as I don’t really find it to do much for acne, though it does contain Aspen bark extract, which is supposed to have astringent-like properties to keep pores small and clean.

Seeing how I use this during good skin times, I suppose it helps with keeping my pores small and clean, but really, it’s all about the soothing, softening powers of this toner mist for me. Thank you, aloe and rose!

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Organic Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Water, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin, Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Anisate, Populus Tremuloides (Aspen) Bark Extract, Pancratium Maritimum Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Caprylyl/Capryl Wheat Bran/Straw Glycosides, Fusel Wheat Bran/Straw Glycosides, Polyglyceryl-5 Oleate, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Organic Citrus Aurantium (Neroli) Flower Oil, Organic Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil, Phenethyl Alcohol

This toner also does do a lot for my mood. For starters, I find the scent absolutely gorgeous — if Odacite made this into a perfume, I’d buy it!

Each spritz brings a bouquet of roses and fresh-squeezed oranges to your senses, and there’s almost a touch of sweet honey as the mist dries and the scent rounds out.

It’s perfect for spring and summer, because hello freshness, but it’s also one to keep during the cooler fall and winter months to remind yourself that roses and oranges are just around the corner.

So, final verdict: I think I already told you. I’m buying this next month (and may have to sample the other two facial mists in the collection).

Odacite is just one of those brands that seems to nail it with almost every product.

What’s been your experience with Odacite? Do you have separate toners for separate needs? What scents do you like? Tell me in the comments section!

    Sounds lovely. I’m like you I need different toners for different reasons. I need one that is great for blemishes & blackheads but also like to find hydrating ones. This sounds like it would smell so good too!

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Yeap! What toners are you currently using for blemishes and for moisture?

      • http://www.ambersbeautytalk.com Amber

        At the minute I’m using the balancing rose & red tea (I think!?) from Acure and I have one from REN but it has phenoxyethanol in it so to replace that I just bought one from Suki which I’m hoping will help with blemishes! Just realised I don’t have one for moisture!! What would you recommend?

        • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

          Oooh, yes, I love that toner from Acure, too! I need to restock it…such a great budget buy! For moisture, I love Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics’ Time Release Vitamin D Moisture Mist. I keep it on my desk at work!

    It’s as though the divine scent of roses and oranges is wafting off your post. Mmm… Clearly I’ll have to check this one out after I use up R.L. Linden’s Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist, another winning mist with an uplifting fragrance. I honestly have not indulged in many products from Odacite. The selection overwhelms me. I think I need/want basically everything so I hold out until the next time I’m tempted to scroll over to their page. Meanwhile, I content myself by living vicariously through your reviews of their products. So thanks for that, Lady ;-)

      Sniff it up, Sarita! :) I need to try the RL Linden line, too! I’m trying to be super-diligent about using up what I have before accepting new samples / buying new products, but gah, it’s difficult to keep up! The first things you should look into with Odacite are the mists and oils … just divine. The oils are expensive, no doubt, but totally worth it, especially “An Autumn on the World.” Just an incredible vitamin C oil. Glad I can help you experience a bit of beauty in my reviews! xoxo

    Hi Kim! I knew you would have sold me on this one! It is definitely going to be my next skincare purchase. I just started a new bottle of Cocoon, but I will give this one a try next. I am using the Odacité cleansing milk at the moment (morning and second cleanse in the evening) and I really, really like it. It is so simple, yet my skin has been so much clearer since I started to use it so I am totally going to get another bottle. I have been pleasantly surprised by Odacité!

      I hope you didn’t read this with your credit card armed and ready! :) Hehe. I’m almost out of my Yuli Pure mask (oh my skin is such a wreck this week), so I’m going to reorder that and a few more goodies … gotta do it in bulk!

      I think I have tried a small sample of the cleansing milk … so gentle and nice for mornings. Can’t wait to read what you think of Odacite’s toners! xoxo

    Ciao Kim, I have been following your blog for awhile now and love hearing what you think about different products. I have been in search of a new toner (why does YÜLI have to be so expensive?),and this seems perfect.

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Hi! Thanks so much for reading and commenting :) This is definitely a repurchase for me. I also love May Lindstrom Skin’s “The Jasmine Garden” which launches next month (I had a sample before, a free gift with purchase and a full size within a limited edition set that I bought … definitely experienced it and loved it!). Yuli “Cocoon” will be my next, and though it’s pricey, I think I a lot of the great green companies that are doing innovative things with smart ingredients are worth it! Would it help if I listed out all my favorite toners and why in a future post? I have quite a few that I love! xoxo

        That sounds like a great post idea!

  • http://wonderfelleworld.com/ Elle

    Ooo I haven’t really heard about this one but i LOVE LOVE rose and neroli so I think I need! I actually have a post on various mists I’ve been using scheduled for later this week but I am almost out of Gressa’s rejuvenating and One Love Organics pretty pores so there may be some precious medicine cabinet space opening up!

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      I have not tried EITHER of those that you mentioned! Will have to get them on my list, too. Odacite is a favorite of mine — just so solid all around!

      Will you be coming to A Night for Green Beauty in LA in a few weeks?

  • Lynne

    Thanks for introducing me to a new brand. I just checked out their website and ordered a sample pack. I wish all companies had sample programs:)

    • http://www.kimberlyloc.com/ kimberlyloc

      Very welcome! I agree, sampling programs are so essential for trying out a brand. I hope you enjoy! Let me know what you like :) And I have a ton more reviews on Odacite; see them here >> http://www.kimberlyloc.com/tag/odacite/
