As you may already know, I tend to use oils and gels versus water based lotions. The main reason is because I found that some lotions were coating my skin causing icky build up. Cocoa Butter and baby oil gel works great, I sometimes miss the hydrating effect of a water based product (especially on extremely dry skin).
Not willing to go back to lotions, I sought out alternatives. Turns out that the solution was already in my midst.
I raved about using Missha's essense in a spray bottle as a facial mist? If you recall, I said that, unlike my other facial mists, this version was very moisturizing. Much more moisturizing than simply misting some water on the skin. The consistency was thicker than water and the effects lasted much longer.
So I was like "hey, why don't I use this stuff all over?" They give you enough product to experiment. Without hesitation, I grabbed one of my glass spray bottles, poured a little in (undiluted) and began to mist my hands and feet. Once I rubbed the watery serum in, I experienced immediate relief. Then to seal it all in, I sealed with a little oil and voila!
That has to be one of my favorite DIYs of the winter. For the past few weeks, I've been plagued with dry, itchy skin. Now, I apply this serum water where ever excess dryness occurs. Not to mention how luxurious it feels to mist First Treatment Essence all over your body. I feel like queens of old would bathe in milk for healthy skin. I'm not slathering some drug store lotion on my skin, I'm misting with nourishing yeast and various healthy skin extracts. Very upper echelon. But at an affordable cost.
Today I checked Amazon and discovered that Missha actually released a facial mist. Of course I had to buy it. Once it arrives, I plan on misting my face with it every hour, on the hour. Review coming soon.
