Beauty Review: Chanel Hydra Beauty Essence Mist


Empowered by the moisturizing Camellia Alba PFA*, and the antioxidant Blue Ginger PFA*, this luxurious, lightweight spray hydrates with a fresh, cool, comforting mist of enriched moisture. Vitamin C and E, along with Hyaluronic acid, boost skin with a dose of nourishment that restores, strengthens and ultimately sustains skin at its most optimal state. Use under or over makeup for a refreshed look.

*PFA: Polyfractioned Active. An ultra-pure, ultra-powerful ingredient created through an exclusive purification technique developed by Chanel.

So this is a new product (for me) that I decided to try because I actually enjoy the Chanel skincare line.  A lot of companies use pretty packaging and a ton of marketing to make a product seem more than it is.  But Chanel, for the most part, keeps things pretty real.

I will say that my skin felt supple and refreshed when using the Hydra Mist and I actually enjoyed how well it worked both under and over my makeup application.  But don't get confused, this is just a rather pricey toner.  I won't say it worked better than Dermalogica or even MAC's FIX+.  I couldn't really see a difference in all honesty.  Which is both good and bad.

For $90 a bottle at 1.7oz, I have to say you can find cheaper alternatives that do the same.  That being said, if you are a fan of Chanel and you can afford it, then I say no harm in using it.  Just remember you are paying for the name.

I give it 4 lipsticks.
