The Dewy Skin Mist May Not Work For Everyone.
Hint: Take a Deeper Look At The Ingredients to Find if This is Best For Your Skin.
The Tatcha Luminous Dewy skin mist is definitely one of the most buzzed-about cruelty free products of 2016! But is it worth the hype?
I would have to say…. it depends.
First things first, let’s get something out of the way. The Dewy Skin Mist is NOT a setting spray. Repeat: do not rely on this product to set your makeup. It is a treatment mist that is meant to hydrate the skin and add a bit of glow-i-ness. More on that later.
What Skin Type Is Best Suited To Use This Skin Mist?
If you have chronically dry skin or mature skin you may love the Dewy Skin Mist. It does add a gentle layer of moisture to parched skin. And like the name suggests, it will give you a dewy, healthy glow. Or if you use a lot of powdery makeups, this fine mist is a great finishing step in your makeup routine to make your foundation look like “real skin” again!
Are you curious what gives the Tatcha Luminous Dewy skin mist its radiant finish? My best bet is the presence of cycopentasiloxane (silicon) near the top of the ingredients list. Although not super harmful to the skin and hair, this should be something that you are aware of if you are spraying this onto your face every morning. Just avoid your eyes and try not to breathe it in and you should be ok.
My tip to everyone on-the-fence about buying this mist? Unless you have some extra money burning a hole in your pocket, go ahead and skip this. While the temporary “fresh-skin look” is nice, I prefer to use products that will nourish my skin so that it develops its own natural glow.
Because my skin is a combination of oily and dry, I find using this mist is a bit of a gamble. Either it will make my skin look beautiful and dewy throughout the day or I look like an oil-slick in a few hours. Compared to other mists, like The Jasmine Garden by May Lindstrom or Odacite’s Aloe & Immortelle mist, I didn’t notice any long-term difference in my skin’s hydration. Coupled with the fact that this formula uses silk extract and royal jelly, which are non-vegan ingredients, I don’t plan to re-purchase this mist. There are too many other wonderful hydrating skin mists in the green beauty market that have cleaner ingredients, more effective results, and a lower price tag.
