PRODUCT RATING: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7/10)
A silky liquid moisturizer of squalane, Okinawan red algae and our HADASEI-3 bioactive complex can be misted onto the face for a boost of soothing hydration. The result is dewy, luminous, replenished-looking skin anytime, anywhere. (Tatcha)
PRICE DETAILS: $48 for 1.35fl.oz. ($35.55/oz) (♦♦♦♦♦)
PRESENTATION: Gorgeous gradient periwinkle blue glass bottle (its clear on the bottom so you can tell when you’re running low) that delivers a fine mist.
TEXTURE & SCENT: Light, milky lotion mist with a scent like Japanese floral tea.
SKIN TYPE: The LUMINOUS Dewy Skin Mist is ideal for those with dry or combination skin. It is also beneficial for those who live in dry climates, fly often, or are often exposed to air-conditioning or heaters, which can rob skin of essential moisture.
KEY FEATURES: Dewy Skin Mist’s delicate emulsion of liquid silk, red algae, camellia oil, and potent moisturizing actives keep skin dewy and hydrated anytime, anywhere.
QUICK REVIEW: This ultra fine mist delicately delivers super hydration and skin care benefits directly to skin. A savior for travelers and those on the go, this also makes a fantastic stand-alone moisturizer for oily/acne prone skin. However, it does not absorb completely, leaving behind a slightly sticky feeling – unexpected for a facial mist product.
Aside from their controversial history, Geisha of Japan have been synonymous with flawless, porcelain skin (mochi hada which refers to the quality of a baby’s skin) and revered beauty. Tatcha has thoughtfully recreated the simple ritual that offers modern day women the gift of pure, polished, radiant and supple skin.
Facial Mists have come a long way since the white and pink bottles of Evian Spray. Did you know spraying water on your skin and allowing it to evaporate, along with alcohol and artificial fragrances – while they feel good, can actually cause the skin to dehydrate? The new crop of mists are packed with skin care ingredients and can be used in place of traditional toners, makeup setting spray and even light weight moisturizer.
Tatcha Luminous | Dewy Skin Mist ($48, tatcha.com) is an ultra fine mist (love) that delivers an incredible list of nourishing ingredients directly to the skin and does NOT make skin feel dehydrated like other facial mists. But this is no ordinary mist. Like all the other Tatcha products – I’m enamored of the detail oriented packaging and ingredients (Hadasei-3 Complex – which includes Okinawan Red Algae, along with Camellia Extract, Glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate to name a few). The bottle itself is divine – a beautiful, calming periwinkle blue that delivers an ultra-fine mist. The formula is a fluid, translucent milky moisturizing lotion that absorbs well (but not completely) – leaving behind happy skin and a lovely scent reminds me of a Japanese floral tea.
I use Dewy Skin Mist before and after (2 pumps total) the Silk Cream and press it into my skin for a facial like result in the morning. Talk about serious hydration. I use it to “bloom” cheek color, set foundation, rehydrate and refresh during the day (when skin looks dry, not oily) and on its own when my skin is acting oily. It also works wonders over acne treatments to prevent irritation and dry patches without adding a heavy layer.
Don’t get too liberal like you might with other water based mists. With a quick 2 pumps of mist, Luminous | Dewy Skin Mist delivered just that – plump, juicy, dewy skin. A heavier application will not absorb – leaving skin feeling a bit sticky/oily (which is fine for PM use). I almost wish the formula was more watery – but completely appreciate its ability to thoroughly and tenaciously hydrate the skin when needed.
Tatcha Luminous | Dewy Skin Mist ($48, tatcha.com) is a wonderful hydrating lotion that utilizes the amazing water retaining properties of precious Okinawan Red Algae. Ideal for those with truly dry/dehydrated skin, for dry/hot climates or for travel. Combination/oily/acne skins can enjoy the benefits – with judicious and moderate application/use. Tatcha Luminous | Dewy Skin Mist is by far the most hydrating facial mist on the market.
