Who is it for?

Anyone who likes to use a hydrating mist. :) We especially recommend Liquid Hydration, if your skin prefers multiple, light hydrating layers, is prone to dehydration, or is sensitive, or you are using strong actives (e.g. anti-acne such as benzoyl peroxide or anti-aging such as tretinoin) known to dry the skin or compromise the skin barrier.

all skin types including sensitive
Skin Problem
dehydration, sensitivity, weakened barrier

how to use it?

After cleansing, apply mist morning and/or evening. Close your eyes and spray all over your face from about 20-25 cm (~9 inches) away. Let it sink in and follow with the rest of your routine. 

If you also use a liquid exfoliant (such as Smooth Out, Cheer Up or Calm Down), we recommend to start with the exfoliant and follow with the toner spray. If you use C-Glow with Liquid Hydration, we recommend to start with C-Glow and follow with Liquid Hydration mist.

A new staple :)

My skin is so finicky, so I was nervous my skin would not like this. But after getting the free sample with my first purchase, I noticed a difference in skin texture and brightness after about 30 days. This is my first time buying a full bottle, and my skin still loves it! Safe to say, this is now a part of my normal morning routine. :)

Nice

My favorite way to use this is to spray after I’ve washed my face & before my serums (like G&G suggest). I’ve noticed my skin stays more balanced, especially in the summer heat. Already repurchased!

Good toner

Good soothing and hydrating toner. The only issue I noticed, when I damaged a bit my skin barrier with some product, I couldn’t use this toner, because it gave me burning sensation. Interesting, because it should sooth… Maybe it is because toner has lactic acid.

Delightful a true toner

Toners should balance the ph of your skin and this does just that! The most is fine and covers with just a few spritz and I never have dry skin with this combined with the hydration station, even when using the exfoliants!
