Korean goodies: Etude House Face Conditioning Fixer review

Over the past year I became a fan of face mists. Not that they do much or are game changers of any kind, but they're a great pleasure to use, refreshing and soothing. 
This Etude House Face Conditioning Fixer, however, makes slightly different claims. Apart from misting the face with fragranced water, this product promises to fix make-up. 
I have oily skin and I'm always on the look out for lightweight products that would prolong the wear time of my make-up. This make-up fixer can be applied before, during or after make-up to provide long-lasting results.  
The basic and non-fancy packaging sprays a very fine mist which feels refreshing and restores some moisture level and glow if I overdo with powder, but it does nothing to keep my face matte or prevent my make-up from melting.
What's more I can see nothing beneficial among the ingredients except aloe leaf extract. Most names represent different chemicals and alcohol figures on the second position, but because I didn't sense it that much, the content must be minimal, just as the content of all remaining ingredients except water. 

The product was originally supposed to contain a sunscreen, but there was a sticker over print saying SPF25, so I can only conclude that the sun protection didn't work out and product info had to be changed. The content of a sunscreen would have saved the day for this product as I'm looking for a lightweight spray-on sunscreen to apply over make-up in the summer.
Without it, the product is average and lacks any selling point except a spray mechanism that distributes a very fine mist.
