Good Question, I've used both. The Elixer has more perfume in it, the Grape Water is Water Grape and Nitrogen. You'll want to spray the Elixer on before you spray then follow with your make up foundation. Both set your make-up and they both can be used to freshen up. the Elixer is more expensive than the Grape Water, both are great to have so it really comes down to a question of preference.

They are both completely different. Grape Water is soothing and has no fragrance, I like to use this during my skincare routine. I like to put moisturizer on damp skin, I find it soaks in better instead of sitting on top of my skin. I like to mist my skin with Grape Water and then use my moisterizer. The Elixer has essential oils in it and almost has a minty-ness to it. It feels kinda tingly on the skin, I like this to set makeup because it gives a nice glow. The Elixer is nice and I never have any issues with it, I love it. But... I could see this being a tad irritating to someone with senstive skin. It has a pretty strong smell due to all the essential oils used.

The beauty elixer is the better product by far. I have tried both and was far more impressed with the results of the elixer. They both will overall benefit your skin in clarity, skin tone, and pore reduction. However the grape waters benefits are far less noticeable than the beauty elixer.

The exilir has essential oils in it. The elixir smells kind of minty and floral. It also seems more hydrating than the grape water.
The grape water is mostly like water. It has a very fine spray and no scent at all.

The grape water is different from the elixir in a few ways. This is just water, light moisturizers and mineral salts, so it really serves as a hydrator or refresher and it can even be used to set mineral makeup very well. The elixir is more power packed and is ideally used before your moisturizer and/or creams for best results so it may be absorbed directly into your skin to provide the greatest benefit. With the elixir I have noticed a more even skin tone and less defined smile lines. So, I use the elixir in the morning before my moisturizer cream, after my makeup I use the grape water spray to set it, and through out the day I use the grape water periodically if I feel drab. I find I have tired eyes, or if I just need a little pick-me-up. I use the elixir again after I wash my face before bed.

I have used both and I prefer the grape water. I dont have a bottle of elixer to compare ingredients, I think the elixer has a bit more to it, maybe it has grape seed extract. I tried the grape water and I highly prefer the water. Settles down my skin when applied to bare skin, and it makes my makeup look very natural when sprayed over powder or liquid.

The beauty elixer has oil in it. Grape Water is non-oily.

I have very sensitive pale white skin with roscea and found that the elixir made my face sting...and not in a good way. It was tolerable and went away after a minute or so. However, with roscea you are constantly trying to calm the redness and skin so I have to stay away from products that sting. I agree with the part about the serum. The finish of the elixir alone leaves a sticky/dewy finish...like a serum. Also, I think the elixir has a strong alcohol type smell which I did not care for.
On the other hand, the grape water is a dream. It is not a serum like the elixir and I would qualify it more as a toner. My skin is very dry so after I step out of the shower it is a race to put my serum and moisturizer on because the water on my face evaporates so quickly. I just spray a little of this on, wait and then apply serum and moisturizer. My skin ABSOLUTELY looks better with this as opposed to using any other toner or no toner at all. It really calmed my skin and made my makeup application very easy. It helps set my makeup so that I have an airbrush-like finish. It's cool and refreshing and I like the smell. It appears to calm or settle my roscea and redness. After gardening all day in the heat I sprayed some on my face, neck and back of neck. It was heaven. I cannot say enough of this product except that there are a million different uses for it and it has quickly risen to one of my all time favorite items.

I also use it just after the beauty elixir. The elixir is a toner and serum. This is more of a refreshing and hydrating spray. I use both.
