I’m a big fan of facial mists (especially in the Summer) (except when I’ve just blow dried my hair) so I was more than happy to give Dermalogica’s Antioxidant Hydramist a go. According to Dermalogica it is a “Convenient mist-on formula supplements skin’s protective barrier by creating an active antioxidant shield of White Tea, Licorice and Vitamin E to fight damaging free radicals, while a patented polypeptide helps prevent the signs of aging caused by Advanced Glycation End-products a damaging byproduct of sugar/protein reactions in the skin). A highly-active Vitamin C complex, combined with collagen-stimulating peptides, encourages firmness and elasticity to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Hyaluronic Acid acts as a hydration magnet to quench dehydrated skin while Pea Extract creates instant firming action to lift and tighten. Rose and Clove extracts comfort and refresh skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color“.
I have been using this morning and night after I cleanse and after I apply my serums and moisturizers for the last month or so and it has been working very well for me. I hasn’t broken me out and my skin has been very hydrated. On hot Summer days when I don’t feel like applying mosituriser (normally on weekends) I use it as a moisturiser and it does enough to hydrate my skin. I like the idea of a mist that invigorates as well as cares for skin, so Dermalogica has my vote there. My skin feels suitably pampered after just a few spritzes. I also like that the nozzle shoots out the finest mist, so I’m not left with giant droplets on my face, and I’m left perfectly refreshed.
What I like about it?
♥ It wakes your skin up and is very refreshing
♥ It does a good job of hydrating my skin

♥ Although I can’t see it happening, I like the idea of the free-radical busting ingredients
