If you are a fan of glow-y skin, this product is for you. I saw many youtube beauty gurus rave endlessly about this product which convinced me to get it. Read on to know about my experience with the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist.
What it is formulated to do:
This silky liquid spray-on moisturizer of squalane, red algae, and HADASEI-3™ bioactive complex can be misted any time for a boost of soothing hydration, resulting in dewy, luminous skin. It contains an anti-aging complex of sonically extracted whole plant green tea, rice bran oil, and red algae — a trio of moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients that helps fight free radical attack. The specially designed pump evenly distributes a lightweight mist that is perfect as a setting spray, instantly softening and smoothing without streaking or disturbing makeup. This spray can also can be used to refresh bare skin or cosmetics throughout the day, without buildup or residue. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
What else you need to know:
Pro tip: the specially calibrated pump creates a very fine, lightweight mist perfect for setting makeup or giving bare skin an instant glow. It can also be used to prep skin before foundation for a flawless application. This product does not contain synthetic fragrance or high levels of alcohol, which can strip skin of its natural moisture.
$48 available at Sephora.
Packaging: Super luxurious glass bottle with a zen inducing lilac purple color. The spray mechanism is a luxe gold and sprays a super fine mist.
My Experience with Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist:
Feel and Look on skin: This skin mist gives a super luminous look to the skin. To me, it looks more glow-y and less dewy (which in my mind means “wet looking”). The glow looks very natural and makes your skin look healthy and plump. This spray can be used both before and/or after makeup. When sprayed on the skin, it leaves a slight tacky feel which does transfer unless you set it lightly. When I use it before makeup, I usually top it with a tinted moisturizer or a sheer coverage foundation and the glow is still visible through. It also works great under matte foundation to help the skin look not so flat.
When used over makeup, it provides a light and nice boost of hydration to the skin and makes my skin feel tight (like the feeling you get after you use a toner) and takes away the dull appearance and excess powdery look on the skin. You should go very light handed with this mist or it is very much possible for you to look like a grease ball. Around 1-2 sprays should be more than enough to give you a nice luminous look to the skin.
The thing I don’t like about this product is that it is really difficult to control the areas you want the glow on and the areas that you would rather have matte. For example, my eye area is usually very oily and I prefer the area to be shine free and for most people that area will be their T zone too. When I spray this, it inevitably also gets on to those areas unless I shield it with my hand or something else. Hence I do feel like I need to do a light dusting of powder even after I spray this only on some targeted areas.
Staying Power: This skin mist did not make me look greasy or sweaty by the end of the day, but the shine was still intact for 5-6 hours, after which I did feel a slight need to blot to look polished.
Fragrance: This skin mist has a very refreshing summery scent which I love.
Overall, since I am a fan of glow-y skin, I have been loving this product. This product gives the most natural-looking super celebrity glow-y look to your skin, which is incomparable to any other “glow-y” product I have used. I love the versatility of how you can transfer any makeup look to luminous with just a few spritz. I don’t see this product being loved by oily skin as it is too glow-y and dewy. Dry skin beauties will love this.
