Facial mists – hit or miss. For me, if you find the right one, they are a hit. I have been trialling all the facial mists that I owned in my beauty cupboard. I started with La Roche Posay Ultra 8 and loved it. This lasted me over six months. This is an instant light and easy to use moisturiser to bring comfort, soothing and repairing. Skin is reported to be +68% more hydrated at 30 minutes after application and last for up to 24 hours. My husband brought me another one after I finished this. I loved there was no scent, easy to use, lasts a long time. This is a long term favourite.
I then used up the travel samples from the brands of; Pestle and Mortar, Trilogy, Dermalogica, Melvita, Jurlique, Balance Me and Lancome. The only two that I really enjoyed was the Pestle and Mortar Balance and the Balance Me Hyaluronic Plumping Mist. The Pestle and Mortar is is a fine misting facial spritz formulated to refresh, calm and clarify the skin. Balance delivers hydration, improves skin health, balances sebum production and reduces skin pollution in a formulation that is blended with deep sea Irish magnesium, amino acids and herbal extracts. The only thing is the price, £28 for 80ml and is expensive. So may be a repurchase if I can get this reduced in a sale. The Balance Me mist, is 30ml for £18. Not a good size for the price.
Pro Collagen Rose Hydro Mist was next used. This unique new indulgence delivers the fast-acting results of a serum through a refreshing mist. Organic Rose Hydrolat softens and soothes the skin from dehydration, while Mediterranean algae, Padina Pavonica, helps to support the skin’s moisture barrier for a smoother-looking complexion. A revitalizing blend of coastal Microalgae Extracts help to freshen and hydrate the skin, leaving it looking refined and radiant. I was not impressed with pump of the spray, and it also did not feel like a super fine mist. It felt like I was spraying a serum on. I finished it and will not repurchase this. I think I just prefer a non fragranced product.
Next was the Revolution Skincare CBD Essence Spray. Infused with ultra-soothing Calendula flower extract, this nourishing formula remedies redness-prone or post-gym skin as it calms sensitivity while conditioning areas of dryness in one portable pick-me-up. Unfortunately the smell put me off, so I ended up using this on my husband. A pity but fragrance is not working for me.
Next mist used was the Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator. A hydrator, toner and light moisturiser all in one, this vitamin infused aloe water lowers skin surface tension, enhancing the delivery of hydration and active nutrients into the skin. Brimming with moisturising, soothing natural ingredients, this miraculous mist plumps, firms and softens skin, enhancing the performance of other products such as masks, serums and creams. This was ok, but not a favourite, another not repurchasing.
Next the Niod Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist that had be recommended to me, to help with my rosacea. This acts as a fundamental daily force against oxidative stress, water loss and the look of inflammation, all of which contribute to loss of visible skin quality over time. It is a huge bottle of 240ml. I struggled with the size of this bottle, too big for me, and my rheumatoid fingers. Not going to repurchasing this.
Then back to my long term favourite. One that I will always have in my stock and hope to get multiples when it is on offer. It really is so good for my skin.
The Elemis Superfood Kefir-Tea Mist will be used once I start the Superfood range in the New Year. Infused with anti-oxidant rich Rooibos Tea extract and vegan, soy-derived Kefir Ferment to help soothe and brighten the complexion. Organic Aloe Vera, Coconut Water and a natural prebiotic help to balance the skin, leaving it hydrated, with healthy-looking glow.
So there we have it. I am a fan of facial mists, but I prefer them to be unscented. I have three favourites, the La Roche Posay and the Pestle and Mortar. I use them as a toner and always try to get stocked up when they are on special offer.
