Skincare Review: Mad Hippie Hydrating Nutrient Mist

It’s already hot as hell so a mist feature is in order. The Hydrating Nutrient Mist from Mad Hippie aims to minimize the appearance of photodamage and leave the skin soft and supple. It contains hesperidin and gingko biloba to help reduce skin discoloration, sodium PCA, pomegranate seed extract, and white pine bark to hydrate, milk thistle to strengthen, sodium hyaluronate to moisturize, vitamin c to brighten, reservatrol to reduce the appearance of wrinkles & protect the skin from the effects of photoaging, and green tea to protect the skin from free radicals.

The mist is denser in consistency than other mists and smells like nothing I’ve tried before. Not to say it’s bad but it’s unique. It gives out a soft, fine spray that sometimes bubbles when it comes into contact with the skin. Because of that, this is best used when sprayed on a cotton pad or straight to a makeup sponge. It is not essence-like in terms of consistency but hydrating, nonetheless. It’s also extremely moisturizing so I like spraying this to my arms and legs, where my skin is dry, as well. This has helped in the evening out and brightening my complexion. I would definitely recommend this to those looking for a mist that will offer hydration and moisture, especially those who are in warmer climates.

Skincare Review: Red Earth Pink Coconut Cloud Cream

The Pink Coconut Cloud Cream ($24) from Red Earth has a whipped consistency with a creamy texture, which surprised me because I associate clouds with something much lighter. It a heavier cloud, I guess.

What I like about this though is how it sinks in quickly onto the skin and, while to moisturizes the skin, it doesn’t feel greasy on my oily skin even after a few hours.

It contains pomegranate extract, shea butter, and gingko biloba extract to protect and moisturize the skin.

It does contain coconut oil, though, so those sensitive to that might have to veer away from this. I also would not choose to use this in the summer as it’s to thick for my skin.
