Here's a brief review on a new product from one of my favorite skincare brands, St. Ives. I'm not really sure whether or not it's new in the global market or it has been everywhere and I just missed it. Knowing commercial brands who migrates to online selling, sometimes what you think is new has been out in the market for quite awhile. I've never been to the drugstore lately so pardon me if this is a mistake. Nonetheless, it was only recently when I saw this on St. Ives Shopee account - it was on sale - so I grabbed it.
St. Ives Facial Mists collection comes in three variants: Zing! Face Mist Energizing Orange, Ohmmm...Face Mist Relaxing Lavender and Yaaas! Face Mist Happy Grapefruit. This particular variant sells out the fastest, at least based on where I bought it from. It was sold out in less than 3 minutes from the time it went on a flash deal.
Brighten your day with St. Ives hydrating face mists, made with fragrances designed to provide mood-boosting benefits. Spritz YAAAS for an instant boost of happy thanks to vibrant notes of grapefruit, peach, and orange. Get glowing with good vibes! Made with 100% natural hydrators. Paraben-free. Dermatologist tested. Cruelty-free.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Close your eyes and mist 10-12 inches away from skin, before or after make-up for hydrated, glowing skin (think face setting spray!). Spray throughout the day while on the go.
I like the colorful packaging and the presence of too much visuals is very playful but not irritating to the eyes. It sprays on well and the long, slim bottle is sturdy and travel-friendly.
SCENT, CONSISTENCY AND EASE OF APPLICATION
This product has a strong citrus scent. The smell of grapefruit is very prominent. It lingers for quite a while then gradually disappears after a few minutes. I like it to be honest however, it's heavily fragranced that those with sensitive noses may find offensive.
The consistency is water-like. It feels refreshing upon spritz and it also hydrates the skin very effectively. Thanks to the combination of natural hydrators it's equipped with. This product absorbs easily without any stickiness or discomfort.
I'm not really into face mists but with this kind of temperature we have during summer, I find myself reaching out to this product more often than usual. My skin feels drier and tighter probably because of the heat so it's nice to have a bit of refreshment and hydration at the same time. It's quite inexpensive for a 120 ml bottle so I wouldn't mind repurchasing over and over.
St. Ives Spritz A Little Yaaas Facial Mist can be used under and over makeup for a natural, dewy finish! It's very lightweight and the best thing - I did not breakout from using it! The list of ingredients is very minimal and I do not find them threatening to any skin types. After finishing my first bottle, I'm planning to buy the Lavender variant next! So what do you think of this product from St. Ives? Good or not?
