This moisture mist was another product given to me by my sister during one of her clearouts. My sister has an expensive obsession of buying stuff, using them once or twice and then getting bored. I can't complain though as I get a load of treats to review! This is one of a few hair mists that I own so I have a few to compare it to. This is the only one which is also suitable for use on my skin too so is a little bit different.
My hair is thick and becomes dried out easily even if I am conditioned it. This mainly happens when the weather is either too hot or too cold for some reason and my hair is often left feeling icky and horrible. I seem to break out in sweats when I am stressed or in certain situations and this often causes my head to feel warm and uncomfortable. This spray is ideal for these situations as I can used it all over my head and face.
The spray bottle is easy to use and one push down on the pump releases a fine but well spread mist which leaves a damp but non-sticky feeling on the surface of my hair. The mist has a pleasant, light smell which is almost aquatic. It is very fresh and clean smelling and the scent lingers on my hair leaving it smelling refreshed. This mist offers an instant cooling sensation which is very relieving for my warm and itchy scalp. The mist leaves my scalp feeling soothed. These effects last well and I only need a few sprays to gain the maximum results from this mist.
Whilst the mist is still damp on my hair, my hair feels much easier to restyle. I don't use hairspray or mousse but I do find that I can fix my hair a bit better when damp. The mist takes very little time to fully dry and it doesn't leave any residue on my hair. My hair feels soft and smooth with a healthy appearance. This mist is very effective at hydrating and giving moisture to my hair but without leaving it greasy feeling.
I have dry, sensitive skin so was unsure if my skin would be able to cope with this product. Thankfully this mist is very gentle and hasn't agitated my skin. I don't tend to use it often on my skin as I do prefer a seperate facial mist (Evian is my favourite) but it does well. I tend to spray it on my forehead as I have an issue with dryness there which becomes worse as my scalp becomes hot for some reason. A fine spritz of this mist leaves this area cool and hydrated but not to the same extend as a facial moisturiser. The mist is non-drip so very practical to apply on the go and I find it best just to rub over the surface of my skin once I've sprayed it to allow it to absorb easier.
Whilst expensive, this moisturise mist is very effective and little is needed per use so one bottle lasts for quite some time. I find this to be a good product which leaves my hair is great condition and is so light and easy to use. I do find it be perfectly suitable for my dry hair type but I would imagine it would be light enough for other hair types. Paul Mitchell recommend this as being great for summer time use and state that it can be chilled in the fridge.
Thanks for reading :)
what lured me into using this product was the fact that it could be used on skin as well as hair. the smell, which is very fresh and light, lured me in even more. i purchased a bottle and fell in love. as a hair conditioner, it is very light and is obviously a leave in. it gives very light moisture and can be used in place of regular conditioner. it helps in the aid of detangling hair. i especially love it as a body moisturizer. you can spray it anywhere including the face and it gives light moisture and a very fresh scent. i will never be without this stuff. great product.!
I love my hairdresser John. I first went to him about 8 years ago. My hair was in terrible condition through perming, highlighting, etc. My hair was greasy at the roots and very dry at the ends which was also split. He recommended that I use Moisture Mist every time I washed my hair. I was a bit dubious because this Moisture Mist stuff was mainly water!! But after every shampoo - before blow drying my hair I would spray this over my hair. (It is important to cover clothes before spraying this as it can stain delicate items) After about 3 weeks the difference was amazing. My hair shone like never before. I didnt need to use conditioner any more which in turn reduced how greasy my hair was. It is important to use a good shampoo in conjunction with Moisture Mist or the benefits can be lost. But used regularly on dry hair you will notice a difference. It has a fresh smell that doesn't overpower, and once on the hair the frangrance enhances that just washed smell. Moisture Mist is also good because it can be used to moisturise skin. I have always suffered from dry skin on my legs through years of shaving. Now whenever I shave my legs I dry them and then spray them with Moisture Mist. I allow this to dry naturally (can be a bit uncomfortable in winter Brrrrr!!), and I must say that I have noticed a difference in how soft my legs are. (until the stubble reappears that is!). Moisture Mist is also gentle enough to use on children's hair and Charlotte's hair is in better condition now that I use it on her also. It is quite expensive - I pay £4.50 for 250ml, but it does last around 3 months - thats using it on Charlotte's hair and my legs and hair. I can thoroughly recommend this if your hair is dry or generally in bad condition. You too will notice a difference. Go on - try it!!
