Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist is a great toner-type product for use after cleansing. It’s definitely one of the most hydrating mists I’ve come across. If you’re looking for an astringent toner then this is not for you. But most people (well, all people) shouldn’t be using alcohol-based astringent toners anyway. Even a gentle cleanser can be a bit drying, so regardless of whether your skin is dry or oily, you can benefit from a toner or mist that adds hydration back into your skin. It’s great throughout the day as well if you need a bit of hydration mid-afternoon. That office air conditioning or cold winter air can be brutal. This will hydrate without disturbing your makeup and will provide a nice, dewy glow.
This particular option is very natural, and is almost entirely organic as well. The main ingredients are aloe and grape, which are gentle on skin and provide antioxidants. The grape juice and grape seed extract provide resveratrol and the rosehip is rich in vitamin C, both of which are great antioxidants for skin. If you have very sensitive skin, be aware that it contains essential oils (rose and ylang ylang). So it smells nice, although it mostly just smells like grape juice to me.
Ingredients: Organic juices of vitis vinifera (organic white grape juice)*, aloe barbadensis (organic aloe juice)*, vegetable glycerin, polysorbate 20, caprylyl glycol, sodium levulinate, sodium anisate, rosa canina (organic rosehip fruit extract)*, decyl glucoside, polyglyceryl-4 laurate/ succinate, vitis vinifera (grape seed extract), avena sativa (oat extract), rosa damascena (rose oil extract), citric acid, potassium sorbate, phenethyl alcohol, phenoxyethanol, cananga odorata (ylang ylang) pure essential oil
Overall, I like this hydrating mist. It’s very hydrating and it says what it’s going to do. I haven’t experienced any breakouts or clogged pores, which is great. It’s also pretty reasonable, at $22USD for 6.75oz. If used once or twice daily that should last a couple months at least. I also really like that Juice Beauty products are formulated without parabens, petroleum, sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. All Juice Beauty products are cruelty free as well.
After using this for a little while longer, I started seeing some breakouts. I can’t be totally sure that it was this product since it could have been a coincidence. But this was the only new product I was using and the breakouts were on my cheeks, where I usually have issues if I’m allergic to something. I can’t figure out which ingredient I’m allergic to though, since the ingredients list doesn’t contain any of my “red flag” ingredients that I know for sure I’m allergic to. Maybe it’s the rose oil?
