I normally have a hard time trying anything that isn’t Clinique. Not that I’m a huge product snob, but because I know what works for me, and what doesn’t, and am hesitant to try anything for the fear that it might break out my skin.
What the claim was:
Dermalogica Antioxidant HydraMist is a flash-firming spritz designed to provide antioxidant protection while improving the skin’s tone and texture. Formulated with hydrating, nourishing and anti-aging ingredients, Antioxidant HydraMist encourages firmness and elasticity, as well as a vibrant, fresh appearance. Lysine polypeptide discourages collagen deterioration while palmitoyl tripeptide-5 and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, a stable form of vitamin C, stimulate collagen production. Bamboo and pea extracts enhance hyaluronic acid formation, increasing hydration, plumpness and suppleness. Ideal for use after cleansing, to set makeup, or as a pick-me-up throughout the day. Free of artificial fragrance and colorants.
Well, its hard to ignore claims like that, and so I took the plunge and started using Dermalogica – AGE Smart Antioxidant Hydramist. Not only because of what the website said, but because I had heard some fantastic things about it from everyone else who had used it before. I’m on a mission to not wear any foundation and coverup this summer, so I’ve kept my eyes peeled for anything that helps keep my skin looking healthy when its bare.
The wonderful thing about Dermalogica is the line is perfect for everyone. It has anti-aging properties along with essential oils that help with wrinkles, and dark spots.
The Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist is a spray that you can under or over your makeup. I use it over my moisturizer. Just a quick few sprays over my face and neck leaves my skin dewy and hydrated. I know most people use it throughout the day, but I find that if my skin has been prepped properly- cleansed, toned, and moisturized, I only need to spray it once and have the effects last all day.
The best thing that I can say about it that a photographer complimented me on my skin. His exact words were that my skin was “glowing”.
The only drawback is that it smells a bit perfume-y when you first spray it on, but that disappears really quickly, without leaving a greasy feel. You don’t have to take just my word for it, almost every review out there is positive.
At $40 its certainly worth every penny.
