Why I’m Totally Into Facial Mists

My post-shower and post-face-wash skin has been a struggle for me. My skin is on the dry side, but breaks out easily with over-moisturizing. I’ve tried expensive face wash systems with 5 step washes, night creams of every kind, etc., always leading me to break out in some way.

Lavett & Chin Coconut Moisturizing Facial Mist

Then I discovered facial mists, and at first they didn’t work either. I’d spray them on immediately after washing my face/showering, when my face was still a bit damp and it similarly was over-moisturizing my face.

Then I forgot to put it on after showering one night, and my face dried. I looked in the mirror and it was so stiff and clearly needed to be moisturized…so I sprayed this on, rubbed it into my skin as if it were a cream, and went to bed. I woke up with amazing skin! I’ve been doing that for months now and my skin feels perfectly balanced and moisturized. This one by Lavett & Chin has been my *hands down* favorite. I discovered/tried it first at the GOOP Mrkt when they did a pop up in San Francisco. The scent is subtle and soothing, and even spritzing on the lips is okay because it tastes so sweet. I cannot rave enough about this product; to me, it’s totally worth the higher price tag.

A close second is this facial mist that’s very pepperminty and works similarly to the other one. It has purified water, peppermint, eucalyptus and other 100% pure essential oils. The peppermint scent is so relaxing I can’t even tell you! It’s a great mister that I discovered in a subscription box of course.

What have been some of your skin moisturizing faves?
