Pink Julep Loves: The Mist by Creme de la Mer

I received The Mist in a gift bag at the Creme de la Mer master class at Harvey Nichols a few months ago and I've been using it now for about a month. I love this product! It's so different than other water mists I've used and though it doesn't replace my favorite, Avene Thermal Water, it's a great addition to my beauty arsenal.

I normally use thermal water sprays when I need to cool down or to hydrate my skin a little after a face mask, on a super hot day or after a hot bath. They're so refreshing! You could certainly use Creme de la Mer The Mist the same way - I do sometimes. However I prefer to use The Mist on a more regular basis. It's very refreshing, though not as cool, so I love to use it every morning after my shower. The scent is calming and it's the perfect way to start the day. When the educational director said in the master class that French women keep this product on their bedside tables and spritz their faces every morning, I decided I would have to do that too!

My favorite way to use The Mist is to spritz it on cotton pads and hold them on my eyes. As a blogger, I get tired eyes a lot from looking at computer screens all the time and occasionally, there's just not enough time to sleep. This is a great way to perk up sleepy, tired eyes and relax for 10 minutes when I need a bit of refreshing. At £50, The Mist is one of the more affordable products by Creme de la Mer, so if you're hesitant about spending a lot on your skincare, this is a great product to start with if you're interested in getting acquainted with the brand!

What products do you love for perking up tired eyes and skin?
