Face Forward With Givenchy’s Mist Me Gently
Think about how much water you drink when the temperature rises and you find yourself treading through the thick summer haze. If you’re like most on-the-run women, you probably have a gigantic water bottle tucked in your summer tote. Now, why shouldn’t your skin get a hydrating pick-me-up as well? Givenchy’s Mist Me Gently allows you to do precisely that – you can slip it into your purse and spray it on whenever you feel those beads of sweat cropping up along your brow or hairline. You can spray it on whether or not you’re wearing coverage (in fact, it can actually help to set your makeup), making it all the more functional.
The clear spray is light, and it initially feels like dew drops on your skin, but it does have a slightly thicker consistency, like an aloe vera gel or a nice serum. The Mist Me Gently Instant Moisturizing & Relaxing Mist features hyaluronic acid, which is often used in moisturizes and anti-aging products since it attracts and binds water molecules and also helps to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Other ingredients include Egyptian lotus, sacred lotus, and magnesium salt. I love the fact that Givenchy utilized Egyptian lotus extract since this drought-resistant bloom can definitely seal in moisture, and it soothes and calms the skin.
Now, of course, this is a liquid you’re spraying on, so make sure to hold the spray at a good distance from your face (about 20 centimeters is considered ideal) and allow a few seconds for your skin to absorb it. If you’re wearing makeup and it’s a hot and sticky day, this might just prove to be your saving grace since it can keep your makeup from running and leaving your face looking as wilted as the clock in Dali’s “Persistence of Memory” painting. A couple of spritzes will not only take care of the immediate problem (freshening up), but will also treat the skin so that, when you remove your makeup, your visage will appear healthier and more supple.
