Review: Philosophy Hope Springs Eternal Hydrating Mist

What is it?
"Hope Springs Eternal Deep Sea Hydrating Mist by Philospphy is an ultra-fine, hydrating mist that helps replenish skin's moisture level to revitalize and restore skin, while enhancing your sense of well-being with a fresh, invigorating scent. Formulated with the rejuvenating properties of the deep sea, hope springs eternal contains over 250 minerals that topically feed your skin healthy nutrients for an astonishingly healthy glow. This instant skin pick-me-up is infused with hyaluronic acid to bathe the skin in hydration and beta glucan, a yeast extract that promotes overall skin health by helping to strengthen skin's natural rejuvenation potential. Philosophy suggests that you use this several times a day to maintain a gorgeous, timeless complexion."

Retail Price: $20 for 5 fl.oz.

Where to buy:, most beauty stores.

My thoughts and experience:  
The packaging is just a very simple plastic bottle with a spray mist and a cover. I fell in love with mists a while back and have been trying new ones every time I am finished with one. I love that the sprayer is easy to work, and that it actually "mists". Some of them spray too much out, but not this one, it's perfect!

This hydrating mist sets fairly quickly, about 15 seconds or less, and it absorbs right into the skin. It's not greasy at all, nor does it burn or tingle. It has a very light scent which kinda reminds me of tropical ocean scent. I use it after washing my face and after I apply foundation. It's been SO helpful during the cold months because my skin is always drier this time of the year. It helps get rid of dry patches, gives extra moisture where needed, acts as a pick me up when my skin feels dull, AND also a powder foundation setting spray. Another cool thing is there are 250 minerals in this spray, that's awesome!

I've been using this for several weeks now, and I'm extremely happy with it. It is definitely something I will repurchase! It's such a huge bottle for $20. I would recommend it for people who have dull or dry skin.

Have you guys used this before? Do you have a favorite hydrating mist?
