Back with another review, although a non-review post idea has been swirling around my head lately and may be coming soon. I have really been focusing on my problems with hormonal acne and trying different products (as well as lifestyle changes) to fix this longstanding issue. There’s a few products I am going to post about as a result and the first one is e.l.f.’s Soothing Aloe Facial Mist.
They advertise this mist can be used pretty much any time of day to soothe and refresh skin and that it can also be used to refresh makeup during the day. I only used this once over makeup but had no complaints. I started out using this only first thing in the morning and now i use it in the morning as well as in the evening (after I have showered and applied moisturizer). I really love this face mist. I’m actually pretty obsessed with it at the moment. I usually try to list all of the pros and cons when i review products but i don’t have any cons with this one so I am just going to tell you all the things i like about it.
I have very sensitive, combination skin. My skin is very dry but my face gets really oily during the day, especially in my t-zone, and i noticed when i started using this is that my face was not getting nearly as oily as it normally does during the day. The scent is very light and fresh, not overpowering at all. I love how refreshing it feels when you spray it on your face and the mist is very fine and goes on evenly every time. There are never any uneven bursts of spray that leaves part of my face extra wet. I cannot say this about any other face mist i have tried in the past. Seriously, the spray is like a micro-fine mist, its perfect. The packaging is nice, the bottle is quality lightweight plastic but looks like expensive frosted glass. It is 2.7 oz. which is actually a good amount of product that will last awhile but will still fit in your carry on. And, in true e.l.f. fashion, a great value at only $6.00 per bottle.
e.l.f. advertises that all of their products are cruelty free and vegan for those that are looking for that. There are a lot of great ingredients in here that i love: Aloe (duh), cucumber, allantoin (great for your skin and something you dont see often), and grape seed oil to name a few. There’s definitely a few things in here that im not sure about exactly what it is, but nothing that would make me concerned about putting it on my skin. Most e.l.f. products are available at Target, but there are some (like the acne fighting spot gel, one of my faves) that are only available through the e.l.f. website. This face mist fortunately is not one of them. While it is of course available on the e.l.f. site, Target does happen to carry this one in stores, so i am willing to bet other retailers that carry e.l.f. will likely also have this spray. This face mist, along with some other products (reviews to come), has really turned into a holy grail product for me.
I am part of the generation that made ADD a thing and it shows. My thoughts are random and I am constantly squirreling, but that's what keeps things interesting, right?
