LPV burned my face up as well. 

As mentioned wash your face and apply witch hazel throughout the day. Is the best thing I could do to try and relieve that burning feeling.

Ironically, that means the "spice" of life. Burned me up!
Mystic Water...never.

Its the fragrance that doesn't agree with you. I use mystic waters all the time and no problem. I have lily of the valley and love it. 

Ive had it happen before with other soap makers. One fragrance would burn my skin and another would be wonderful.

If the soap uses real Lily of the valley extract for the scent, you might be allergic to lilies. It's a thing.

My face does that with certain fragrance oils, so that's why I try to stick with soap that use mainly essential oil for fragrance, which doesn't bother me. I notice its usually the soaps that are made to smell like certain colognes or perfumes.

love cardamom in desserts.
