I have been into facial mists and sprays recently as they are able to replenish the moisture to the skin throughout the day and help the melt the makeup into the skin, making it look more “natural” and less cakey. Thus, when I saw the First Cosmetics Mulbit Vitamin Sparkling Mist in my BNT Beauty Box, I was pretty excited as I have not encountered such a concept before.
The Mulbit Sparkling Vitamin Mist comes in box, with a bottle full of 90 vitamin capsules and another empty spray bottle. According to the diagrams in the instructions, as everything else was in Korean, you’re supposed to fill the spray bottle up with water and add two vitamin capsules into it to make you own bottle of vitamin mist! I am not sure as to how long the mist can be kept after though, but I found that 2/3 of bottle usually lasts for about a week or so.
I managed to find a video regarding this vitamin mist and turns out, different coloured capsules are supposed to be used for various purposes.
Green : Anti-wrinkle properties
Blue: Regenerating properties
Pink: Helps to strengthen the skin barrier
This Mulbit Vitamin Sparkling Mist comes with 90 tablets, so if you follow the instructions and use 2 for any concoction, this set will last you for a while!
I couldn’t really pick the capsules out as the crystal-eque bottle that they come in has a really narrow hole. So I simply shake it till 2 tablets come out. This time, I got yellow and blue so I just simply popped them in.
I filled about 2/3 of the spray bottle up with distilled water and added the vitamins capsule to it. It fizzes up, resulting in quite a bit of effervescence. Once it settles and the capsules are fully dissolved, I capped it and there I have my own customised facial mist!
I like to leave the bottle uncapped for about an hour or so to let the capsules fully dissolve and for the carbonated gas to fully escape. Do not cap it too early or it could ruin the nozzle of the spray due to the pressure!
There are a few ways to use this mist. It can be sprayed directly onto the skin, onto a cotton pad before swiping that all over as a toner, or simply sprayed into the palms of your hands and pat it into the skin.
I do like the spray bottle that it comes with, as it is clear so that I can see the remaining amount of product left as well as if the capsules are still fizzing. The spray is decent, but do be careful as a good amount of product comes out at once.

To be honest, I am not exactly sure about this product. It really feels like I am spraying scented water onto my face and I do not really see any difference when it comes to improving the skin. I did try spraying this over my makeup to remove the cakiness and it worked fine, but then again, so does rose water or any water spray. I also like to use this to damp my beauty blender, if I am feeling horribly lazy that day.
