We’re getting into the colder weather now, and while you may love your warm coats, it’s sure not the same as the summer sun! Depending on which type of heating you use, your skin can end up dry and sore. While there are a few things you can do, one of them is to upgrade your moisturiser… but let’s face it. You’re probably attached to your fav’ and not ready to swap just yet. In this case, we suggest just adding things that hydrate, such as a mist – we have quite a few. Something to add moisture during the day when you actually need it, rather than starting from scratch!
So, what have we added to our skin care routines? Check out our reviews and discover which things that hydrate are best for you also!

“When thinking of hydrating products for your skin, you tend to think of moisturisers or maybe a Hyaluronic serum, but hydration comes in many forms, the most important one comes out of the kitchen tap! But for my review, I decided to tell you about a hydration mist that I keep on my desk and use at work throughout the day. I’m a little like a lizard, I need to be warm to function properly, so at home and at work, I have the heaters set to a toasty 22 degrees. I should actually try and grow some bananas… Anyway, being in a warm room can dry out our skin, so this little mist is super handy at keeping me hydrated, and it comes from my favourite makeup brand, Jane Iredale. Behold the Jane Iredale Hydration Spray in Lemongrass Love! (there are actually a few to choose from, but lemongrass is my favourite because of the fresh citrusy smell, although our customers tend to like it in Pommist)
What is it?
The range of Jane Iredale hydration mists are a water based product containing botanical ingredients to support hydration in the skin cells. Completely natural and organic, like all the products we stock here, they contain no toxic chemicals and are not tested on animals. Also, as with all Jane Iredale products, they are vegan friendly!
What do they do?
Hydrate! By spritzing on to your face you receive an instant boost of moisture by plumping skin cells. They also contain antioxidants and antibacterial ingredients which help to protect and soothe your skin. Also great for minimising oil production. I use the Hydrating Mist D20 on my clients in the clinic after an abrasive treatment, such as a Dermafrac or Dermabrasion because of the soothing properties they contain.
How to use them?
Spritz a couple of times directly onto your face from arms length. Not only are they great for hydration, but also double as a setting spray for your mineral foundation, whether it be liquid or powder.
It’s the smell that really gets you loving these sprays and with four different scents, you’ll be sure to find one you love. I also like the dewy look they give.
Are they worth it?
Hydration mists are one of those ‘extras’ that you don’t really need, but if you had one, you would use it. Many people, myself included, like to take one when travelling on a plane or to have one sitting on your work desk (especially if in air conditioning). They make a really lovely gift, especially for a work friend or your child’s school teacher.”

“I’m always last to get my review in, sorry Pip, and I was feeling a bit stuck and scatterbrained, as usual, so I had a sneak peek at what the other girls had reviewed for ‘things that hydrate’. I figured, because Meg, Megan AND Pip included spray mists, I would be a copycat, and do one too. Well, at least it’s not the same product as their’s. 🙂
I’m quite sure I’ve spoken quite a bit about Osmosis MD Clear and it’s benefits in past reviews. Well I’m still using it and still loving it. I ALWAYS use after applying serums, and do you know, I very regularly don’t need to use any type of moisturiser or mask of an evening, I just feel like my skin has enough hydration after only two or three pumps of Osmosis MD Clear, so why waste product when I don’t need to. It furthers the intensity of your serums by forcing absorption, which in turn means you don’t have to use as much of your serums, it’s a win win.
Make your skin care go further with your mist!
Unfortunately the Osmosis MD Clear has been discontinued, but you can still purchase at a special price while stock lasts. The good news is it has been re-branded and reformulated as Osmosis MD Infuse, so I’ll be really interested to see if there much difference between the two once I need to replace my Osmosis MD Clear . A bottle seems to last forever, so that may not be for a few months, I think I’ve only used three bottles in two years!!.
If you don’t include a mist of any kind in your skincare routine, pop one in your next order and try, I am sure you will love it.”

“My hydration mist addiction is definitely Osmosis MD Boost! I thought it would be a bit of a lark using one as research for this article, but now I’m hooked!! I use it a few times a day!
I’ve used hydration mists before, but never one with so many active benefits as this. Initially I spritz my face after my serums. This helps my serums to penetrate further and also leaves me feeling more hydrated. I also find myself using it after I’ve cleaned the kids up following lunch. We’re all in the bathroom so i give my face a quick mist. What I’ve found is that by evening I’m not as dry, and I don’t use as much Vitamin A as I was. Without thinking too much about it, I’d been using 2 pumps of my CosMedix Serum 16, and now I’m back to 1 pump. If you’re like me, and your skin is starting to become dryer than you’re used to, then a hydration mist is definitely a quick fix!
Plus, I love knowing it has the extra growth factors as well as being antibacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal. I look better and am not planning on stopping anytime soon!!! ”

“For those days when my skin is feeling lifeless and zapped of plump, I use two things. One for an instant affect because I cannot handle looking and feeling like it anymore, and the second to fix and prevent the actual issue!First is Jane Iredale Hydrating Spray. If my skin is dry, adding makeup usually accentuates it, so I’ll spray this over my face all day. Almost obsessively.Second is Aspect Dr Hyaluronic Acid serum. Hyaluronic acid retains water, which is essential for dehydrated skin. Its a thick serum, almost gel like, and feels soothing and rich, especially when applied under a great moisturiser (like Osmosis MD Hydrate).”
