Skinfood: Royal Honey Mist

So, you guys know I’m into honey in beauty products. When I found this brand at Urban Outfitters, I did some research, and decided I had to try the Royal Honey Mist from Skinfood. Said to include royal black honey (from South Asian forests, no big deal) and royal jelly, that hyper-nutritious Queen Bee food, this natural mist is meant to hydrate and add a dewy glow to your complexion. This Korean brand works on the premise that delicious, nutritious food is also delicious and nutritious skincare, and I can definitely get behind that.

The ingredients and text on the bottle are not in English, so you kinda have to trust that it is what it says it is. The mist definitely has oil in it (you can see it when you shake the bottle) so if you have oily skin, it’s probably not right for you. It does have a really mild, honey-floral scent that I like, and it comes out in  very fine mist. A couple spritzes on your face and décolletage (that’s the first time I’ve ever written that word) at night leaves you feeling fresh and moisturized. I recommend using it after you wash your face and before you use any other moisturizer or cream. I think this could also be a great airplane refresher – contrary to popular belief, water-based sprays like those Evian sprays you can get at Sephora actually dry you out more on airplanes, as the extremely dry air pulls the moisture out of your skin. Using an oil-based spray helps keep the moisture in.

Royal Honey Mist is a fun, healthy, and affordable addition to my skincare collection, and I really enjoy the unique products Skinfood comes up with: I can’t wait to get my hands on their Steam Milk Essence Mist and the Parsley and Mandarin toner next!

Have you tried any Skinfood products? Let me know what you think in the comments!

    Mon – funny you should ask, and you know we’re BFF’s because: Yes, I tried to eat it. LOL. Well, I got some on my lips and tried to lick it off, and no, it doesn’t taste as good as it smells. I do not recommend it.
