Calming mist whenever my skin is experiencing redness and itchiness

IMG_2894

The Jurlique face mist isn’t a new thing in my skincare arsenal. I’ve previously tried the rose face mist and I fell in love with the scent. Always with the scent. When it comes to hydrating toner I think I’m easily swayed when it’s obviously hydrating and the product has a really nice scent. But I couldn’t help to wonder whether the 100ml bottle of this face mist at around IDR 670,000 is too pricey or not? But when I factor in my other hydrating toner and how long it lasts, probably it is worth the price.

So I picked up another one after I finished my bottle of rose face mist, this time around the travel size of Jurlique Calendula Redness Rescue. At that time, I was having a really problematic skin with new small acne popping out every other week or so and unbearable redness and itchiness due to stress caused by projects deadline. I was under a lot of pressure and it’s taking a toll on my skin.

The easiest way to deal with redness and itchiness, other than using the right skincare arsenal, is also to have a kick ass face mist. Whenever the urge to scratch my face arise, I would just spray a face mist. That’s why I picked this one. Because calendula is one ingredient that will go hand in hand with my problem. Calendula is known for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Tea for your skin from Jacqueline Evans

Jacqueline Evans is another skincare product that hailed from Australia. To be exact the home of Jacqueline Evans skincare is Malvern, Victoria. It’s no surprise that I jumped to the opportunity of trying the skincare from this brand. I wasn’t sure where to start with this brand. As with any other brand, I was playing it safe and opted for the face mist instead.

Before I review the Jacqueline Evans Rooibos Facial Toner, let me first introduce you to the brand. Jacqueline Evans is a Naturopathic Skincare and classified as a premium organic skincare, though price-wise it ranges between AUS 18 – 78. With the most expensive product being the eye gel. The brand focusses on research so that they could find safe products yet effective. It contains only natural and certified organic ingredients.

The Rooibos Facial Toner is a face mist that is packaged in amber glass bottle with a spritzer. The spritzer itself is easy to use and it disperse a normal amount of mist, the one that is not too fine and not that horrific that you feel like it’s raining cats and dogs.
The ingredients is pretty simple, they are:
organic rooibos tea*, rosa damascena (rose) water*, aloe vera concentrate, soya lecithin,
vegetable glycerine, amyris balsamifera (sandalwood) oil, rosa damascena (rose) oil,
pelargonium graveolens (geranium) oil, grapefruit seed extract
*certified organic ingredients
Instead of using water, Evans used organic rooibos tea and rose water for this beautiful concoction. The former ingredient lends its soothing and herbal scent of the product. I’m a tea drinker so using this product is a really pleasant experience for me. If you’ve ordered a rooibos tea from Starbucks before, you probably know what scent I’m talking about. It’s just this one is more delicate.

Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 12.44.17 AM

I can’t believe that I haven’t reviewed the Goodal Super Seed Oil Plus Skin Mist, considering this face spray got constant spotlight on my Instagram. This is basically a face mist that can act as a hydrating toner or to freshen up your skin whenever you need an extra boost of hydration.

Goodal is a pretty simple brand from Korea. Considering most Korean brand have the illusion of state of the art ingredients and the latest innovation in skincare, this brand come out strong with its simplicity of using great oils as its main ingredients and no mumbo jumbo involved.

What is it?

As I said a straight forward face spray with one part layer and mostly water. The oil provides boost of hydration with green seed concentrate. The water layer is a combination of white flower complex and niacinamide for extra brightening and anti ageing benefit.

The 7 green seeds includes:

1. Sunflower Seed Oil – provides vitality
2. Jojoba Oil – increases hydration
3. Camellia Oil – maintains moisture
4. Green Tea Seed Oil – brightens
5. Argan Oil – provides skin elaticity
6. Olive Oil – calms
7. Macadamia Oil – nourishes

How to use

You can spray it straight onto clean skin after you apply your acid toner. I like to have a nice four sprays to cover all parts of the face and to make sure that I have enough hydration. Alternatively, this is a great face spray that you can use for Chizu Saeki Method (CSM)of applying hydrating lotion. Not only it will feel more hydrating but the herbal scent of this face spray makes the CSM a more enjoyable routine.

Affordable skin mist: Freshel Skin Freshener

It’s not a secret anymore that Freshel, from Kanebo, is one of skincare brands that I’m deeply in love with. One they have a really effective lineup that works. Two they’re super duper affordable. Unfortunately, they’re not available in Indonesia. No surprise there.

One of the few things that my friend got me when she visited Japan was this Freshel Skin Freshener. Lately, I’ve been hoarding face mist because they’re simple and really refreshing on the skin. But I want something with more weight so that it doesn’t get all soaked up by the skin immediately but able to retain the hydration. I used to have Freshel lotion essence and it works great and even better than the Hada Labo lotion. So I trust that this product will work for my skin.
