A major perk of working for a beauty retailer is the never-ending stream of products you get to test. With so many formulas to try, it’s easy to rotate products out of your routine as quickly as they came in, but sometimes, when a product is really good, it sticks. For many Soko Glam staffers, one of those products is the Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Essence Mist. Read on to find out why.
At Soko Glam HQ, we have a little daily ritual called “Mist O’Clock.” Each day at 3PM, a reminder pops up on our computers and the soft sound of spritzing can be heard around the office.
Now, there’s no rule about what face mist can be employed at Mist O’Clock, but you might think that’s the case given the amount of Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Essence Mists that get used at the hour.

The mist was born in response to the popularity of the Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner – a holy grail formula with over 600 five-star reviews on Soko Glam.
Like the toner, the mist contains brightening licorice root water and extracts, plus another radiance-boosting ingredient, saccharomyces ferment filtrate. Other key ingredients include bamboo water for moisture and centella asiatica leaf water to soothe. Adding to its mass appeal is the fact that the formula is free of ingredients like alcohol and artificial fragrances that can be sensitizing.
Already you may have figured out why this mist is such a prized possession around here, but I’m happy to go on.
In addition to the group of ingredients that do more than just offer a quick burst of refreshment, the texture is downright dreamy. The formula is milky, making the mist fine and even, in comparison to some mists that feel like they’re spattering you in the face as you apply.
The mist is versatile, too. While it’s perfect for giving skin a midday pick-me-up or to use as a makeup setting spray, it’s also a true essence that can be used in your morning and nighttime routines after your toner and before your serum.
Really, with the Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Essence Mist, it’s always Mist O’Clock.
