Sometimes you stumble upon a product that is a true game changer. Enter May Lindstrom Skin The Jasmine Garden Botanical Mist. First of all, a few thoughts on facial mists: while many use facial mists as a toning step, I consistently use mine as a finishing step for makeup or as midday pick-me-up. Having tried all the mainstream products at this point, I was really looking for a natural alternative. Often mists are laden with parabens and high levels of alcohol, so they are actually doing the opposite and zapping hydration from your face. When you are generously using a facial mist, as I do, you don't want to be constantly spraying a load of chemicals on your face. So, I went to the Detox Market on Beverly in Los Angeles, a natural beauty emporium filled to the brim with makeup, and skincare galore for the conscious buyer.
I had heard of May Lindstrom's skincare line before, specifically her Blue Cocoon Balm, which gets rave reviews, so I was excited to be able to see her products in person. They are all exquisitely packaged in dark glass and the contents looked and smelled luxurious. On a whim, I misted the heavenly scented Jasmine Garden onto my face and continued to look around the store. Upon returning to my car, my sister said "wow your skin looks so glowy." I was sold.
After using the mist for the last month or so, I am completely hooked! I mist after makeup to take away any powderiness and bring luminosity back to the skin. I would like to say I keep it next to my desk for a refresh midday, but if I am honest, I use it all day long!
