The Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist is the second piece in their water collection (for my review of the mask, see here). Before using this, I held the opinion that all mists are created equal. Sure, some have scents, but they seem to perform the same on the skin – fun at first squirt but tingling dryness later. I've tried cult classics like Evian and Shu Uemura and (relative) beginners like Amorepacific and have never went beyond the first couple of spritzes. They just don't do anything for me. In fact - and I hate to admit this because it seems like such a waste - sometimes I use my Evian spray to wet my hands.
The Dewy Skin Mist smells strongly of ginseng (to me, that's a draw) and my favorite use for it is as an extra nourishing base before I put on my face makeup. Sometimes I also do a couple of spritzes before I apply the Moisture Rich Silk Cream. I've used it on a couple of my friends and both asked to examine it immediately after. I know there's alcohol listed in the ingredients, but it doesn't dry out my skin when used, as opposed to other mists I've tried. That said, mists are not a substitute for moisturizers, especially in the winter months.
Now, for disclosure's sake I need to tell you that Tatcha sent me a bottle for review, but if you read my first feature on them, I mentioned near the end that I purchased one before I had any contact with them. I'm secretly glad I now have another because I have less than half of my current bottle left. On a side note, I'm so proud that I'm making progress in finishing my products!
