I’ve always been a little skeptical about face mists. Let’s face it, it’s just water you spray one your face – how revolutionary can it be? I’ve tried the odd face mist here and there as the years have gone by, but my favourite by far has to be the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist. Jurlique is an Australian company that was founded in 1985 with the purpose of creating the purest natural skincare possible. In the thirty years since the brand was created it has gone from strength to strength, landing many an endorsement from beauty and fashion magazines around the world.
Their rosewater mist comes in a beautiful sturdy bottle, as does all their mists. The rosewater mist in particular is described as such: ‘A daily hydrating mist featuring the relaxing scent of rose that restores and hydrates the complexion and is ideal for normal/combination skin types.’ Many mists tend to sit on the skin and that’s the most they ever seem to do; not so with the Jurlique. It sits lightly on your skin from the first spray and soaks into your skin. The first thing you notice is the hit of rosewater as soon as your spray it: it’s a light and refreshing scent that is wonderfully fragrant. Soon after the spritz the water soaks into the skin and helps to hydrate as well as provide a refreshing feeling.
The balancing mist manages to not only feel like a luxury product when you use it but also does what it says on the tin. At £18 for 50mL it’s not the cheapest facial spritzer or water but it’s still a reasonable price for an item which can last for over a year depending on how often you use it. I’ve had mine for almost two years now, and I probably spritz with it at least two to three times a week. Each spray is loaded, so that with one spritz on your hands you have enough to well cover your face. To me this is an utter hero product, one which is not just irreplaceable in my daily routine but which I would stay with even when it finished. Try it if you get the chance!
