Just over a month ago I received this new, first of it’s kind serum-mist from Skin Inc. As you know i’m a long term fan of the brand and this new addition was more than welcome to my skincare routine.
I have very sensitive skin, which is why Skin Inc products work so well for me. Their products are free from irritants such as fragrance and have always been well received by my fussy skin.
This new mist contains just 8 ingredients, one of which is Onsen water from the 1200-year-old Izumo Yumara hot springs in Japan, known for it’s healing properties. I’m intrigued!
The Pure Serum Mist comes in a weighty glass bottle sporting a minimalistic yet luxurious design.
To me the most striking feature is the nozzle. The best i’ve ever come across!
It feels so sturdy and well made. Something you come to appreciate when you rotate a lot of mists. But overall it’s the little things right? I truly appreciate well packaged products and this was a nice touch.
Prepare yourself for the finest, most even misting action ever!
The Skin Inc serum mist contains loads of skin loving ingredients to soothe and bring your skin to it’s natural equilibrium; and best of all, like I mentioned before, no unnecessary fillers. Just the few active ingredients in high doses.
- Hyaluronic Acid to capture and retain moisture.
- Onsen Water for it’s healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Glycerin to hold in moisture and regulate skins water balance.
Complete Ingredient List – Water (aqua), Butylene Glycol, Spring Water (aqua), Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate.
This mix is specially crafted to penetrate deep into the skin, hydrate and reduce sensitivity (in blemish prone skin) and overall promote and maintain a healthy skin barrier.
I mostly use this as part of my skincare routine. Straight after cleanser to refresh, hydrate and prep skin for serums that follow which are usually Skin Inc Licorice serum + Ceremide.
Used as a setting spray, this gives your skin a dewy effect (specially great for combatting the over powdered look) and as a desk companion to top up hydration levels while at work where the A/C is usually on full blast!
I don’t see this as something to carry around daily, it’s too weighty in my opinion.
Consider this as a luxury mist, more for skincare benefits than general misting to stay cool. It does great as a calming mist for whenever my skin gets itchy and also combats any tightness caused by dehydration. It’s definitely much more than ‘just another facial mist’.
A must try for skincare junkies and anyone who suffer from dryness, skin sensitivity and blemishes.
Available at all Skin Inc outlets retailing at SGD98 for 100ml.
Made in Japan.
