Skin Care 101 - Skin Food Steam Milk Essence Mist
There's something about facial sprays that makes them undoubtedly refreshing. When the mist comes in contact with my skin, I couldn't help but feel perked up. I very much like the idea of having your complete skin care routine in just one spray.
I saw a lot of Korean celebs endorsing facial mists and it seems that it's really a part of their well-known, rigorous skin care regimen. They like dewy skin and the product really does the job.
I found it difficult to choose my first spray. I didn't know which brand should I try first until I saw this one from Skin Food.
It's called Steam Milk Essence Mist. Look at that packaging. Cow spots in a milk carton box. So clever. :)
They even added the Nutrition section to list the ingredients. I can't throw it away! HAHA!
The aerosol spray holds 150 ml of
Skin Food is known for it's concept of creating cosmetic products using food as a key ingredient. #foodtherapy
Sadly, there's paraben in the formula. And it's not just one, not two, not three, but five.
This is actually a 3-in-1 product that combines toner, serum and emulsion/moisturizer.
I've seen milk used as a key ingredient in many skin and body care products. They say it hydrates the skin and helps retain moisture. For sure you're familiar with milk bath as well.
What I love about it:
- a pick-me-upper
- smells great
- quick and convenient to use
- smoothens, moisturizes and softens the skin
- no more dryness on the cheeks
- no breakout/irritation
- makes the skin dewy (in a good way, not greasy and shiny)
It's really an amazing product but personally, I think it's more of a moisturizer and semi-serum. I haven't seen it's benefits as a toner.
- you might want to avoid this if you don't like dewy skin
- doesn't dry up fast
- feels a little sticky while it dries
