When opened for the first time January Tonic Mist restorative laboratories ($ 24), I was a little worried because the packaging looks a bit like something you see in a store start-up or Etsy. Combined with not being aware of this brand before October, I was a little nervous about using it in the face. I’ve spent recently 30 and have combination skin, so I’m willing to try anything that would make my skin look younger and healthier – but that desire to try new products sometimes backfires … and my face must deal with the consequences.
My first experience with the use of restorative Tonic Mist was a bit unfortunate, but mostly I blame myself for this – I should have thought to test spray mist first. Tonic Mist laboratories January restorative comes in a clear bottle with a spray cap (as seen in non-aerosol bottle of hairspray). He had already been warned that from January laboratories does not use any artificial flavors, fog could smell a bit medicinal. The ingredients are clearly listed in the product, however, and directions, and after checking the list of ingredients, I felt more comfortable using the product. So I washed my makeup, I made my regular cleaning routine, and then sprayed into the fog before putting on my moisturizer. I generally use a toner-based alcohol a day (good fashion Olay), but I have tried a variety of toners both alcoholic and non – despite all those with alcohol seem to be more successful (even harder) with maintaining my clear complexion. I’m a big fan of hamamelis toners as it gets colder, however, because it is less harsh on my skin than alcohol, but still provides the feeling of cleanliness. January laboratories Restorative Tonic Mist uses witch hazel, so I thought I could become a great toner. The fog did not have a medicinal smell when I sprayed, which was good news for me, and not really have much of a smell at all. This is an advantage for a product that could be sprayed on the face a couple of times a day.
Unfortunately, apart from the lack of smell, my first spray bottle Tonic Mist laboratories restorative January was disappointing and left me with product stains all over his face. So I washed everything out and tried again. The second spraying was much more uniform (less as if I had flicked water on the face). It was given a nice refreshing feeling to the face, but since I had just washed my face, looked a bit like overkill. I decided that henceforth, he would try to use it during the day, rather than after my regular routine of morning / afternoon. In the same vein, he had thought to use this product instead of my toner for a month, but after reading about the product, do not think that is intended for this purpose. Unfortunately, I was not thrilled with the idea of regularly spray anything on my face in 85 degree weather, so the product sat in my vanity for a couple of weeks. Then, as time began to cool, I could feel my skin tightening and drying. I started using the mist 2-3 times a day to keep my face moisturized. And suddenly I went “uh, I do not much care for this product” to “this product is great!”
will say, for a product with so many ingredients intended to minimize imperfections, such as witch hazel extract, aloe, licorice, and calendula extract, the product did not really seem to improve skin imperfection or grains. To this end, I went back to using my morning alcohol-based toner and night. Therefore, if you are looking for a product for problem skin, I’m not sure this is the product for you. However, if you have dry skin, live in a colder climate, or just like the idea of sprinkling his face at various intervals in the day, would give this product a try. My bottle has about one-third of the product to the left and I intend to buy more – to $ 24, which is a great price and, depending on how often you use it, it could take some time. It’s definitely refreshing and I can see quite a difference in sensation and skin elasticity in the days I use the spray versus days not. Overall, I recommend laboratories January Restorative Tonic Mist for use exactly as descriptors product name – a ‘fog restorative tonic “- not as a toner or other normal replacement routine, but as a good tonic for dry skin a cold day.
