Towards the end of summer, I did an overhaul on my skincare routine. My skin had become so temperamental and fussy that it was hard for me to put anything on my skin that didn’t immediately irritate it.
Fast forward to four months later and rather than using peel after peel, I’ve been learning the art of pampering. And of slow beauty. With that came a fondness for facial mists! Truthfully, I was a newbie to this area of skincare, but was so excited to team up with Olay and test out their newest product – Olay Mists.
I’m not a coffee drinker, but if I was this has to be the equivalent for skin.
The Engerizing mist is formulated with Vitamin C and beragmont, and gives my skin an extra glow it sometimes lacks on mornings that feel far too early. It’s formulated to be extremely light and therefore go over or under makeup. It won’t make you feel greasy, wet or like it’s sitting on the top of your skin. And I can easily notice the difference between days I don’t use it as my skin never feels quite as hydrated.
The mists are very fine and feel much higher quality than their packaging might suggest. (I personally would love to see these in glass bottles.) And I’ve discovered these feel just as good as a midday refresher, as they do on my freshly washed skin. Though if I had to choose I would say:
Calming – on freshly washed skin
Energizing – morning or midday refresher
Both Olay mists have definitely been helping me introduce a little more hydration and pampering into my skincare routine. It’s a good reminder that your skincare routine doesn’t end at morning and night regimens, it’s really an all-day effort to keep your skin hydrated and happy. And truthfully you couldn’t go wrong with grabbing either one at your local Target! (Though I highly suggest the Energizing mist.)
