Sunday Riley Pink Drink essence review

I love a good facial mist. I love the feeling of applying it on my skin after cleansing. It is no secret that my favorite ones from Embryiollise as it leaves my skin hydrated and it is affordable. But I’m always on the look for new ones.

I got this from the Caroline Hirons Autumn kit and as I heard so many good reviews decided to give it a try. Here is my review.

My Review

My review: I had high hopes for this product as I read a lot of great reviews online and the formula seemed promising. But I was wrong. It stung my face a little bit and my skin didn’t like it. It didn’t feel as refreshing or hydrating as my usual facial mist and for the price is not worth it. There are better options in the market.

How I used: On my evening routine after cleansing my skin.

Why I liked the most: nothing.

Cons: I think the price is too high for such little product that comes in a small bottle (50 ml) an how my skin felt after using it.

How long did it last: 1.5 months, only using it at night.

Pecas’s score: 1/5. Poor.

Will but it again: No


On the positive side, the company does a lot of initiatives and actions towards sustainability. From supplier accountability, to energy efficient facilities to better packaging. I give the points for that. And they are cruelty free.

Sustainability score: 4/5.

Where you can buy it: you can buy directly from Sunday Riley page, Cultbeauty and Sephora.


Note: I purchased the product myself and there are no affiliate links in this post.
