While your face can’t miss what its never had, you certainly will have no excuse not to at least try out a face mist by the end of this post. Why am I such a face mist advocate? Before I knew that a face mist is similar in nature to a toner, infuses nutrients into the skin, and can even help set makeup, I was not a mist-believer. Surely it was another hyped up product that would provide minimal results, I thought.
After testing out the featured five face mists, I slowly began changing my opinion of face mists. I began using the Skyn Iceland Artic Face Mist and fell hard for the refreshing feel of the spray on my face at the end of a hot day. I took Jurlique’s Rosewater Balancing Mist with me when I was traveling to help combat dry and dull skin, the scent providing a little aromatherapy for me. I even started keeping the Mario Badescu Facial Spray in my refrigerator in the summer months.
I started to notice the actual skin care benefits, like the extra glow that L’occitane Immortelle Brightening Face Mist created for my skin at the end of a long, stressful day. By the time I confirmed those makeup setting rumors, my collection expanded to five face mists, including my most recent antioxidant-packed discovery, the Spadet Nutrient Rich Facial Spray. What started as what I believed to be a skin care product fad trial turned into a refreshing, skin enhancing experience, leaving me to conclude that you all need at least one face mist in your skin care routine this summer.
I’ll confess, I’m a bit of a BB Cream addict. Take a peek in my vanity and you’ll find no less than 6 different kinds of BB Creams. Some work better than others, but they all make it into my daily skincare routine on a regular basis. The latest to hit my arsenal is the new Revlon Photoready BB Cream skin perfector with SPF 30. Like others in this product category, it’s a lightweight multi-benefit Beauty Balm that combines skincare and makeup into one step.
I’ve been using this product every day for 2 weeks and can honestly say it’s one of the best I’ve tried. The consistency isn’t too thick, which makes it perfect for summer, and it isn’t too thin either, so it provides the perfect amount of moisturizing benefits and coverage I need. The light medium tone blends perfectly with my skin, providing virtually invisible, natural coverage. And unlike many other BB Creams which offer little or no sun protection, Revlon Photoready contains SPF 30, which is essential all year round and especially during the summer months.
One of the reasons I am such a fan of BB Creams, is that they have moisturizers and primers built into the product, something that my dry skin needs desperately. In the winter, I typically apply BB Cream on top of a daily moisturizer for added hydration, but in the warmer months, I don’t need any additional products. I simply apply the cream to damp skin to lock in moisture and to assist with even distribution. I add more product to any areas that need additional coverage, so I can often skip concealer.
Along with the BB Cream, I’m also testing out the new Revlon Lash Potion mascara. The product contains a potion “with strengthening proteins that drench lashes for volume” and a triple-groove wand that prevents clumps while lengthening lashes. I’m lucky enough to have fairly long lashes, and this mascara definitely delivers when it comes to thickening and avoiding clumps.
Both of these products have found a permanent place in my makeup kit this summer.
