I’ve never quite understood what the whole fuss was/is with the Evian water spray.  I have bought it a few times and never knew really what to do with it besides giving  yourself a little cooling down spritz on hot a day.  It’s just water in a spritzer.. or is it?

Well honestly that’s what I thought until I was recommended to try it again and was told of it’s benefits.  We can all agree that it isn’t just any o’l water.. it’s Evian compressed in a can and when sprayed produces a really fine mist.  I actually love this product and am using it everyday and figured there are many of you out there just like me who never knew what to really do with it.

Here are some of the benefits:

* the obvious- the spray hydrates and cools your skin on hot days/temps. Pop it in the fridge for a lovely cooling effect on a hot day.  Spray on neck, hair, face.

* use after you have cleansed, toned, applied serums and moisteriser; then spray your face a few times to seal in the moisture and keep your skin hydrated (this is what I do)

*after applying makeup a couple of spritzes of Evian will help make your makeup look more natural and give it a dewy appearance.

*if you find after applying makeup, your makeup looks too thick or needs toning down, a couple of spritzes does the job

*”If your skin has a tendency to dry up during the latter part of the day (this can happen a lot if you’re in a cold office), you can spritz a bit of Evian to literally water your skin. The humectants in your moisturizer and/or makeup will seal in the moisture from the water.”

* the Evian spray is a great substitute for the MAC Fix + and sets make up.

* spritzing your face prior to applying moisturizers help improve the effectiveness of the cream and seal in moisture.  Spray your face and wait for it to dry before applying the creams.

* the canister is sealed and sterilized so no worry of spills or leaks.  Tap water often contains chlorine, fluoride and other harsh substances which can cause senstivity and dryness.  Evian water is soft and contains minerals that the skin will benefit from and be easily absorbed.

* if you use a lot of powder based makeup and find that you look a little powdery and chalky; spritz a bit of Evian and it will create a more natural look.

*Evian’s mist rehydrates skin suffering from overheated, dry office air and skin exposed to heaters. Evian Spray also revives your makeup throughout the day, and keeps you looking fresh by replenishing much needed moisture.

*It’s a great cleansing mist of that removes perspiration, harmful salt or chlorine, and instantly soothes and rehydrates sun-burned or wind chapped skin.


I love a good product! Especially when it’s natural stuff I’m putting on my face/body.  What makes these products and the company extra special is that it is a home grown Bahraini company that can compete easily with other simliar brands! Another thing I love is supporting Local talent!

The founder Reem Al-Khalifa started her business Green Bar in 2006. What sets her stuff apart from the rest is that not only all her products are made 100% from natural ingredients but they makes sure to use local ingredients and promote what the region offers in terms of nature.

I came across an interview Mideast Youth did with Ms. Al-Khalifa and here are a few questions they asked her.

What is Green Bar?
Green Bar is my plant essence bar where I make my natural perfumes. I believed in oils for a very long time, but thought it ridiculous… and forgot about it because I was too lazy to look for proof. Then through my personal studies on Ayurveda which is the Indian health/medical compliment to yoga, I realized that yes oils are used for healing and my investigation started from there.


Why did you decide to use regional ingredients?
We have very beautiful exotic ingredients that no one is celebrating. Just a little creativity and improvisation can go a long way. They are a form of my expression to celebrate the island.

Two of my favorite Green Bar products are the Sweet Almond Amber Body Oil and the Face Elixir! Simply Luscious!!
