After loving the last Sircuit Skin product I tried, I thought I’d try another designed for acne-prone, oily skin, Sircuit Skin Immaculate Mist. It’s what they call a “moisturizing mist.” But to me, it felt much more like a toner (though not as drying).
Yes, it feels good to apply it on a hot day, but it didn’t give me the light moisture I was hoping for (since that’s what it claimed to give). Spraying it on isn’t really the most effective method either, especially if you want to feel like the product is working. I ended up spraying it on a cotton pad and wiping it all over my face for more complete coverage.
What makes it more like a toner and less like a moisturizer is not only its liquid formula, but also its astringent ingredient witch hazel. It may not be as drying as alcohol, but it’s definitely not moisturizing.
That said, I want you to know it’s actually a very good toner for oily skin. If only Sircuit Skin had marketed it that way. Just look at some of it’s ingredients: L-Sodium Hyaluronate (known for retaining moisture), Heavy Water that sits on the skin longer for soothing and calming, Olive Leaf Extract and other antioxidants, and essential oils for stimulating and refreshing the skin. And like all Sircuit Skin products, it’s free of artificial colors, fragrances, and chemical preservatives.
So, if you’re looking for a nice, lightweight moisturizing mist, this isn’t the best (I’d recommend Avene’s Thermal Water Spray instead), but if you’re looking for a good-for-your-skin toner, then this product is a great choice.
