On the Go Moisture: Neocell Refreshing Herbal Mist

About a month ago, my husband and I whisked our kids away for a mini-vacation. We stayed in the Casitas (which were so nice and relaxing away from the main hotel) at Morongo, about an hour away from South Orange County.

Morongo is about 30 minutes from Palm Springs, so it's desert weather and extremely tough on anyone's skin because of the dry 100+ degree heat and super strong winds (there are sand storms on the regular!). Luckily, before we left for Morongo, Neocell sent me a bunch of press samples, including this dry weather essential, "On the Go Moisture Complex: Refreshing Herbal Mist". 

Any moment my face felt hot and tight under the sun, or while walking through the strong winds to the main pool from our casitas, I'd spritz a couple pumps on my face and my skin felt immediately refreshed and less tight. 

After I came home from our little vacay, I liked to use a couple sprays after applying my ELF translucent powder. I love how the mist makes my makeup look ever so slightly more natural. I get that nice finish with just a bit of dewiness -- like I just got my makeup done and did a few jumping jacks.

In addition to the general hydrating abilities that face mists provide, the Neocell formula has lots of other beneficial ingredients like collagen, skin balancing herbs like aloe vera and rosemary, and Vitamins A and E. It is also paraben and oil free! (yay!!)

summer necessities in my purse
The Neocell spray contains rosemary, an ingredient that stood out to me. So, I did a little research on the benefits of including that particular essential oil in the Neocell face mist. Well, I found out that rosemary is widely used in aromatherapy for stimulating the brain, improving memory, and mental clarity (my mommy brain is definitely needing all of that). It is also used in the treatment of congested respiratory tract problems, stiff muscles, and boosting liver and gall bladder. So, not only does the Neocell face mist refresh, it has a bunch of other health benefits like treating stuffy noses and waking your brain up! 

The only bummer is that it seems you can only purchase this online from retailers like amazon.com. So, it's not super convenient to obtain. Maybe order a couple at a time if you like it :)

Since, I started beauty blogging I have been introduced to so many wonderful products I would have never gone out of my way to try. I am a creature of habit, and would have been too shy to try face mists not knowing how my acne-prone skin would react. Thanks to Neocell, face mists are now an essential in my purse!

Have you tried face mists? What are your favorites? What ingredients do you look for?
