Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist

In my opinion, for someone with dry skin, face sprays are a must. I've been using them for years and it's made such a difference to the condition of my skin. For the last few months I've been using Dermalogica's Antioxidant Hydramist. Whilst it's a nice product I'm not in love with it.

I use it both as a toner and a hydrating face spray. I prefer to use it as a toner because I find that sometimes when I use it as a hydrating face spray it leaves my skin sticky. As a toner Antioxidant Hydramist is lovely. It leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised. I haven't noticed any flash-firming though.

Dermalogica says: A refreshing antioxidant shield with flash-firming properties to improve skin texture while intensely hydrating dry, dehydrated skin. Convenient mist on formula supplements skin’s protective barrier by creating an active antioxidant shield of white tea, licorice and vitamin E to fight damaging free radicals, while a patented polypeptide helps prevent the signs of aging caused by Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs – a damaging byproduct of sugar/protein reactions in the skin). A highly active vitamin C complex, combined with collagen-stimulating peptides, encourages firmness and elasticity to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Hyaluronic acid acts as a hydration magnet to quench dehydrated skin while pea extract creates instant firming action to lift and tighten. Rose and clove extracts comfort and refresh skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

Would I buy it again? Probably not. It's a nice product, but I find Avene Thermal Water works just as well and it's a lot cheaper.

  1. Oh I really love the product - I've never actually used a spritzing toner before but I really love this - I don't find it make me sticky at all. I use it after cleansing in the morning and evening, but mostly I like using it to pep up my skin and rehydrate after sitting in front of the computer all day. I haven't done a review on it in my blog yet, but it's all good for me. I really love the smell and that does as much for me as anything. I wouldn't usually spend this much on something but I get good deals from Jersey Beauty Company which makes it not so bad!!!
