I’m definitely having a skincare hoarding problem at the moment. Last week I told you about my latest Clinique haul. I was tempted by bonus time and needed to replace my Take the Day Off Balm. As my second product I bought the Moisture Surge Face Spray on the back of Caroline Hirons recent approval of it.
I have quite dry skin even in summer so anything that helps keep moisture in the skin is a winner for me. I’m a big fan of Caroline Hirons skincare routine which is basically double cleanse, acid toner, spritz, serum then moisturiser. The spritz step is great for refreshing skin and locking in moisture under your serum. I’m currently using a pure rosewater for this but I thought I’d try this out.
This contains plant extracts such as Aloe, Gotu Kola and Cammomile to help soothe skin. It also contains glycerin to keep everything feeling moisturised. The water sprays that a lot of people use actually only help evaporate more moisture off the skin if something isn’t layered over them. This spray is perfect as it moisturises skin whether used under products or alone. When I apply this my skin feels instantly soothed and refreshed and leaves a perfect base for serums and moisturisers.
The only gripe I’d have about this is that the spray is a little bit fine for me. It’s very mist like which means I’ve to spray a few times for my face to feel covered. This isn’t a cheap spray at €28 but I really have grown to love it and have no doubt I will be replacing it when it runs out. I’d love to hear if you’ve tried this or if you include a face spritz as part of your routine.
