This holiday season has me STRESSED to the max! Between work (crazy schedule!), my shoulder (I had surgery, now I need PT), holiday shopping, and of course, COVID… I need a vacation.
Remember those old Calgon commercials? “Calgon…take me away.” I wish!
Sometimes during your day you need a bit of a “pick me up.” That can be a long walk, a cup of coffee, or even a “cat nap” if you are lucky. Sadly, that is not always possible, but we still need a little something to help us through our day.
I received to review an interesting set of skin refreshers from the brand HollyHoux.
I have used skin mists in the past (different brands). They can be very refreshing. They can cool your skin, or add much needed moisture. I had one I sprayed on my face each morning before putting on my face products. I felt like it gave my skin more moisture.
HollyHoux sent me a set of their Refresher Mists, in an assortment package. That way I was able to try them all out. There are five different Refresher Mists in the package.
- REFRESHER MIST Citrus
- REFRESHER MIST Green Tea
- REFRESHER MIST Rose
- REFRESHER MIST Lavender
- REFRESHER MIST Crystal
The mists come in decent sized bottles. They might look tiny when you see them on the computer screen, but in person, they are bigger. They each contain 53ml of product. They are an ideal size for traveling or to pop into your purse or backpack when you are on the go.
Each Refresher Mist is a different scent and gives off a different “vibe” (for lack of a better description). For example, the Lavender Refresher Mist;
A spritz of this anti-inflammatory formula helps calm and soothe skin, controls oil and smoothes skin’s surface.
The spray smells like lavender. It’s a light scent (not like a perfume). I find it very soothing to use. I have used this several times at work over the past couple of weeks because work can be stressing, and sometimes I need to calm down. This spray helps.
The sprays smell true to their name. The Rose DOES smell like roses (it’s such a beautiful scent!), Green Tea smells like green tea, but I find this scent a little perfumey. It’s still a nice scent.
Citrus is a nice scent too. It’s not too strong. It’s more on the light side.
Crystal is nice because it doesn’t have much of a scent. It has a clean, fresh scent. .
These mists are easy to use. Simply close your eyes and spritz a couple of pumps of the spray onto your face. It’s that easy. You could even spritz the mists on your body if you’d like.
The mists all have benefits that are great for our skin including antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and improving the signs of aging. All of the mists serve a different “purpose.” That is why the gift set with all five scents is a great option. That way you can try them all to find out which are your favorites. All of the scents are available in bigger spray bottles and refills.
Right now I have lavender in my tote bag I bring to work, citrus on my desk and the other scents in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom. I spray them as needed or when I need a “pick me up.”
The HollyHoux five piece Refresher Mist set would make a great gift and stocking stuffer. I think this would be a great gift for a teen and “Secret Santa” too.
Another interesting and unique product form HollyHoux is their Cool Liquid Cushion product. I wasn’t even sure what it was suppose to do.
According to the brand;
Unlike powder, never cakey, flaky or obvious. Just a lightweight compact miracle. This refreshing cushion taps on to instantly cool skin, as it whisks away sweat. sebum and shine. Pores appear smaller.
Skin is left hydrated with a noticeably smoother, brighter look.
What is not to love about that?!
The Cool Liquid Cushion comes in a compact. It also comes with it’s own “puff” applicator.
To use, remove the “puff” that comes with the compact. Next, life up the cover on the compact to expose the spongey part on the bottom of the compact. Then tap the puff on the spongey part so that the liquid inside the sponge gets on to the puff. The next step is to tsp the puff all over your face.
The product leaves a cooling sensation on your skin, which is very refreshing. I’m not sure about my pores, or the “airbrushed look” the product can achieve, but what I can tell you is that it feels really nice on your skin (refreshing) and I used it on my face without any make up. Another words, I apply it to my face and nothing more, then I go to work. I’m not a big fan of make up to begin with. I believe “less is more” when it comes to make up. With the Cool Liquid Cushion product, I can tap it on my face, apply a little mascara, and go.
