Face mist is apparently all the rage with beauticians, beauty editors, skin care experts and the like, and so a few months ago I gave it a try.
I have to say, I didn’t really get the hype at first. I was told it would work as a setting spray for my make up but I found that instead it dislodged everything and made foundation catch in my dry skin. If I put on on before my make up it took too long to dry and make up didn’t go on to it very well anyway. So in the end, for me it was a bit of a waste of money.
There was, however, one (slightly alternative) positive that came out of the expensive face mist ordeal. I invested in the Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray which I found in Debenhams for £22.50, and for that price I expected it to be good, and it was. I ended up using it when I woke up in the night with a tight and uncomfortably dry face (particularly in the depths of winter) – a few sprays and I could go back to sleep relieved of all discomfort.
This was before I had discovered Eucerin’s night cream, but that being said the dry skin was a lot worse for me early on in the course and so even if had been using the night cream the spray would probably have been worth it.
So if you feel like splashing out then I do thoroughly recommend this stuff! I’ve finished it now but I’m sure it would also have been useful for keeping moisture levels up on the beach too. It was nice to put a few sprays on before bed in warmer weather too.
My friend raved about Avene Thermal Water Spray for dry and irritated skin (particularly in hot weather), and at £7 in Boots it seems a much more reasonable investment!! It’s recommended for eczema so it’s definitely worth it for the worst of the dry roaccutane skin, and it comes in a small hand bag size so it’s good for touch-ups!!
