Happy Friday lovelies! We made it through another week. I don't know about any one else but this one somehow simultaneously dragged and flew by all in one. Maybe I'm just going slightly crazy, either way I'm happy it's Friday and I can't believe it's the last Friday of March! We've already been getting upper 80's temperatures here so I know summer is going to be a hot one. Hot temperatures mean sweat and we all know sweat and makeup do not go together so today I'm sharing with you some new favorite facial mists to help your makeup stay put in the warmer weather!
I know I'm a little late to the game on facial mists but better late than never, right? I remember a few years ago on our girl's trip to Charleston, it was SO incredibly hot out (who's idea was it to go to Charleston in mid-August?!) and while on a carriage ride, Biana whips out her Evian facial mist, sprays me down and I fell in love instantly. Ever since that moment I've started trying out new facial mists and today I'm sharing a few from Pixi I've been using lately.
The Vitamin Wakeup Mist is perfect to use in the morning after washing your face. It has an orange blossom water base that is blended with citrus fruit extracts, lavender, and arginine which adds hydration, refreshes and wakes up skin and provides a protective layer against all the nasty stuff that builds up on your skin throughout the day. My only complaint with this mist is the sprayer is a bit heavy so it's not quite as "misty" as it could be.
The Hydrating Milky Mist is a good morning or evening mist. It contains a blend of blend of black oat, pro-vitamin A and linoleic acid which gives you an instant surge of hydration and plumpness to your skin. Being completely honest, this is the one I've used the least so I can't say I love or hate it. My skin tends to be oily so anything that "hydrates" I tend to be wary of in fear it will make me more shiny.
The Makeup Fixing Mist has by far been the one I have used the most. This product has a rose water and green tea infused formula comforts, protects and balances skin which extends and refreshes makeup while balancing the skin. Usually I'll spray this on after I've done my makeup. I use 4 sprays focusing on my forehead/t-zone, cheeks and chin and will use throughout the day as needed just to refresh my makeup. Is it as good as the Urban Decay All Nighter? No. But it is literally half the cost and does a good enough job where I'd buy it again. I think if I had less oily skin and lived in an environment that didn't have 300% humidity 90% of the year I could probably get away with the Pixi one all year but I'll probably switch back to my UD one when our humidity jumps.
Last but not least is the Pixi Glow Mist. I love the Glow Tonic so I was definitely excited to try this out. The Glow Mist contains 13 natural oils, propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts to hydrate, protect and nourish your skin. Does it feel good on your skin? Sure does. Does it give you a glowing complexion? Ehhh. Honestly (for me) I think this would be better used without makeup to give me a dewy/glowing look but spraying it over my makeup really doesn't do much for me. Not saying you wouldn't have different results but I didn't love it as much as I love the Glow Tonic.
And there you have it! Have you tried any of these facial mists? If so what did you think? Like it, love it, get that shit away from me? Are there any facial mists you absolutely love that I have to try?
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
