[A'kin] Pure Rose Hydrating Facial Mist Review

If you have read my previous post on Mypure you all will know I’m looking to start using more natural beauty products and I’m pleased to be testing out a selection of products each month from the Mypure website.

My first review is the [A'kin] anti-ageing, moisturising, Pure Rose Hydrating Facial Mist.
[A'kin] is an Australian organic skin care brand that produces vegan and organic products which are free from sulphates, silicones, artificial colours, as well as many other nasty chemicals and ingredients that are found in many skin care products.

The mix of my car heater/air conditioning and the warm weather recently leaves my skin dry with patches (usually on my forehead and cheeks). I have been spraying this soothing facial spray after I have cleansed and before applying my makeup on a morning as I find it’s brilliant for waking me up. It can be used on the body as well as the face to tone, moisture and nurture skin. I also spray over my makeup through the day to refresh and moisturise my skin and makeup.

Usually I find rose-scented products a little bit ‘old-lady’ for me but I like this smell of delicate rose petals. It is quite overpowering when you first spray but as soon as the spray settles onto the skin the smell it leaves a light spa-like scent. The spray sinks in quickly and without leaving my skin greasy and leaves it wonderfully soft. On an evening this spray is calming and relaxing and with the mix of vitamins and antioxidants makes a good overnight treatment, in conjunction with the Rose Oil Serum (review of which coming very soon). I have been using these two products instead of my usual night cream and my skin feels soft and looks radiant and glowing.

This facial spray has so many uses and I’m sure is going to be my handbag essential this summer (as apparently in the UK we’re going to be having a heat wave!). This would be perfect to moisture and refresh your face during a flight, at the gym or when your skin is feeling dehydrated, flushed or heated. It is also brilliant on mature skin, as my mum has tried this spray on her dry skin and it looked more radiant and glowing. I can imagine that this spray would be brilliant on sunburn as it contains cooling and healing Aloe Vera.

The spray costs £12.99 for a 125ml sized bottle which is a little pricey in my opinion and is a available from the mypure website.
