Kate Somerville Nourish Hydrating Firming Mist

OK I know I’ve already posted my Top Spritz’s but this hadn’t been in rotation for long enough to make the grade. 🙂

Kate Somerville are one of my Desert Island brands. No surprises there for regular readers but they are. Top 10 picks from all of my favourite brands are in the making – in Kate Somerville’s case, my only problem would be narrowing it down. This new Mist is part of the Nourish family – Nourish being one of my favourite moisturisers of all time.

What is it?

‘A weightless alcohol-free formula that delivers a surge of hydration to your skin.’

Who is it for?

Anyone. It contains actives suitable for older skins and combination skins alongside the hydrating ones.


What’s in it?

Water/Aqua/Eau, Polysorbate 20, Glycerin, Propanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Limonene, Beta Vulgaris (Beet) Root Extract, Hydrolyzed Starch, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Butylene Glycol, Algae Extract, Linalool, Ethylhexylglycerin, Montmorillonite, Adenosine, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Carbomer, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 


Possibly acne/allergy/troubling for some ingredients?
Essential oil
Glycols


Natural? Organic? Man made? Vegan?
Man made with natural ingredients. 


Tested on animals/sold in China?
No/No.


What’s not in it?
alcohol
parabens
mineral oil
phthalates

How do you use it?
Mist after cleansing or as and when needed throughout the day.

What’s good about it?

This is actually a really good choice for an older person with adult acne/combination skin. It contains Montmorillonite clay and peptides – it’s a nod to the Far East ‘essences’ rather than a straight-up ‘spritz’. While I don’t see it being a problem for other ages or skin types, if you are someone that is oily by lunchtime, or a greaseball by 3pm, this would help that situation calm itself down. It’s a way to give you a hydration boost without any greasy residue or ‘shiny-face-syndrome’.


What’s not so good about it?
It’s not cheap. It’s great if you can afford it, but $48.00 on a spray mist is no walk in the park. Hence, my thinking that the peptides etc push this more into the older market. 


Where to use in your routine?
As above.
