Current Skincare | Facial Mists #2

I thought it was about time for another little roundup of my current ‘in use’ skincare at the minute – this time it’s facial mists! I say ‘in use’ as due to my hoarding tendencies I already have three new facial mists that I haven’t opened yet so I could do with getting a wriggle on with these three! I used to be a big fan of a spritz throughout the day and I am still using the Mario Badescu from part one of this series for that but I am not misting as often anymore now I am working from home. The temperature is more constant and I am not back and forward as much so not really needing the refresh which has slowed down my use! I was finding the nozzle wasn’t the most precise and sometimes the spray was making my hair go frizzy too. Anyway, that aside, the three I have here are more so skincare steps for me, I will sometimes spray again at lunchtime but I like these as part of my morning and evening routine to dampen my face before hyaluronic acid and my moisturiser! 

 

hydrating facial mists

The La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra 8 Daily Soothing Hydrating Concentrate RRP £19.50

was one I picked up back when I started Roaccutane as I had heard how good it was for sensitive skin and I was not disappointed. This feels so soothing and hydrating as a skincare step and the mist is very lightweight and fine too! This aims to provide gentle relief for tight, irritated and dehydrated skin and contains glycerin, propanediol, pentylene glycol and allantoin which are all ingredients designed to increase hydration and soothe skin. It is also alcohol and fragrance free and has been formulated specifically for sensitive skin! If you have sensitive skin I cannot recommend this enough, like I said it feels so soothing and is perfect as the step before moisturiser. My skin isn’t as sensitive anymore but I would still pick this up again in the future and it's always on offer! I also wrote about it in my French Pharmacy Favourites post here!

 

Next up, the Heritage Store Rosewater and Glycerin RRP £7.99 and to me this is such a cult product! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it when it came to Cult Beauty! It contains aqua, glycerin  and rosa damascene flower oil so bear in mind it's scented. This isn’t an issue for me and I find it calming and hydrating! I don’t love the spray on this though – it doesn’t distribute evenly unfortunately and like with the Mario Badescu, I need to make sure the front of my hair is covered so it doesn’t get frizzy! Other than that it’s another nice skincare step to aid with hydration! I also wrote about it in my Best Budget Skincare picks here!


Lastly I have the mini Dermalogica AGE Smart Antioxidant Hydramist* RRP £12 which is the newest to my collection and probably the one I have been enjoying the most! It contains butylene glycol, sodium PCA and arginine/lysine to hydrate and restore the skin. I love that this has the added benefit of creating an antioxidant shield for your skin as well as containing hydrating ingredients! The mist is fine and sprays evenly and to me it had like a very subtle almost cinnamon scent? I’ve see other reviews saying herbal so maybe that’s a better description haha but I find it very soothing. This is the priciest per ml but I have been enjoying the mini so much I see myself picking up the full size (£45 for 150ml) when I get through my stash! So far, this is the closest I have come to finding a replacement for my beloved January Labs Restorative Tonic Mist which I can’t get hold of in the UK anymore!


So that’s my three current facial mists on rotation! I’d love to hear what your favourite mist is! You can see part one in this series here!

  6. The rosewater one sounds interesting, apart from the spray! My friend got me a rosewater facial mist one year for Christmas and I love it, it's so refreshing in summer and a great moisturiser without being to heavy on my skin!

    Hope your week is going well :)
