I love face oils, but I really do have a thing for toners.
Without a spritz pre-oil, I feel a little undone. I love the way a good toner hydrates and preps skin to receive additional moisture.
But what if your moisture could truly come from just your toner?
Throughout the entire period I tested my full-size sample of TATCHA’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, I was enamored with it. I could go without face oil after spraying on this milky mist, and would frequently do so just to see how my skin would feel.
It felt plump and soft!
I’m a creature of habit, though, and really love my oils, so I worked them back into my routine, but TATCHA’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mist seriously could have you second-guessing your facial oil addiction.
My skin drank this mist up pre- and post-makeup application, and the mist delivered this, well, dewiness that didn’t appear wet or messy — just ripe skin that was lit from within.
As for scent, I really couldn’t detect much; it just smelled clean, neutral and light. Some people with sharper noses have said they can smell the ginseng, but I don’t get that at all.
I’m going to take that back. I will definitely repurchase this toner. It’s just that good.
Here’s a look at the full ingredients list:
(TATCHA, please list your entire ingredients list online! I typed this up from my packaging and tend to misspell long, cumbersome words!)
Glycerin, squalene, cyclopentasiloxane, propanediol, triethylhexanoin, polyglyceryl-2 diisostearate, PPG-5-Ceteth-10 phosphate, trideceth-12, sodium lauroyl lactylate, sorbitan stearate, ethylhexylglycerin, phenoxyethanol, rice germ oil, behenyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate SE, fragrance, camellia japonica seed oil, alcohol, inositol, sericin, camellia sinensis leaf extract, chondrus crispus extract, licorice root extract, zizyphus jujuba fruit extract, panax ginseng root extract, scutellaria baicalensis root extract, algae extract, royal jelly extract, thymus serpillum extract, sodium hyaluronate
As I mentioned in my previous review of TATCHA’s Sampler Set, TATCHA’s committed to clean ingredients in its luxury line.
Individual ingredients in the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist didn’t rate higher than “4″ on the EWG Skin Deep Database, and TATCHA products are formulated without mineral oil, synthetic colors, fragrances, sulfates, parabens, PEGs, PPGs, urea, DEA, TEA or phthalates.
Of the entire ingredients list, cyclopentasiloxane rated “3″ and everyone’s favorite, phenoxyethanol, rated “4.” TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist also contains fragrance, though TATCHA says its fragrance is natural.
Though TATCHA Luminous Dewy Skin Mist isn’t perfect for purists (again, phenoxyethanol and alcohol raise some red flags), I had nothing but a superior experience using this toner. It came along with me to New York Fashion Week, and since I’ve been without it for a few days, I’ve been underwhelmed by my current traditional lavender hydrosol.
