~Awapuhi Moisture Mist~
This hydrating moisture mist spray is part of the Paul Mitchells professional hair care range. It is available in a pump bottle and an aerosol can. I own the bottle which is a simple affair - white plastic with a spray top. The bottle can be recycled and this product has an 18 month shelf life.
This mist is promoted as being the perfect product to hydrate thirsty hair. It can reactivate any styling products in your hair allowing you to touch up your hair style quicker. This mist is also suitable for using on skin and promises to revive dry skin whilst leaving it soft and healthy.
Important ingredients include :
*Lactic acid and Hawaiian awapuhi - enhanced shine and deep moisture
*Sodium PCA - balances moisture
*Spirulina and plankton extracts - will leave hair smooth and silky thanks to the rich amino acids and vitamins in them
This product has not been tested on animals. There are other products in this range.

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 :)
Summary: a great moisture mist for hair and skin
