Skin Care 101 - Skin Food Steam Milk Essence Mist

by - July 27, 2014

There's something about facial sprays that makes them undoubtedly refreshing.  When the mist comes in contact with my skin, I couldn't help but feel perked up.  I very much like the idea of having your complete skin care routine in just one spray.

I saw a lot of Korean celebs endorsing facial mists and it seems that it's really a part of their well-known, rigorous skin care regimen.  They like dewy skin and the product really does the job.

I found it difficult to choose my first spray.  I didn't know which brand should I try first until I saw this one from Skin Food.

It's called Steam Milk Essence Mist.  Look at that packaging.  Cow spots in a milk carton box.  So clever. :)

They even added the Nutrition section to list the ingredients.  I can't throw it away!  HAHA!

The aerosol spray holds 150 ml of milk product.

Skin Food is known for it's concept of creating cosmetic products using food as a key ingredient.  #foodtherapy

Sadly, there's paraben in the formula.  And it's not just one, not two, not three, but five.

This is actually a 3-in-1 product that combines toner, serum and emulsion/moisturizer.

I've seen milk used as a key ingredient in many skin and body care products.  They say it hydrates the skin and helps retain moisture.  For sure you're familiar with milk bath as well.

What I love about it:

  • a pick-me-upper
  • smells great
  • quick and convenient to use
  • smoothens, moisturizes and softens the skin
  • no more dryness on the cheeks
  • no breakout/irritation
  • makes the skin dewy (in a good way, not greasy and shiny)

It's really an amazing product but personally, I think it's more of a moisturizer and semi-serum.  I haven't seen it's benefits as a toner.

  • you might want to avoid this if you don't like dewy skin
  • doesn't dry up fast
  • feels a little sticky while it dries

I use it day and night, after applying my eye cream or sunscreen.  After spritzing it onto my face (horizontal on the forehead and like drawing a U on one cheek to another), I use a light patting motion rather than wiping it totally.

Others say that putting it inside the fridge will make it even more refreshing. I haven't tried but I will.... later.  HAHA!

Overall, I like this product but I also can't wait to try the others from brands like The Face Shop, Etude House, Innisfree and more.  This one works well - perfect for those who have dry skin.  I just can't imagine using this during summer.  Maybe I'd look for another one which can dry up very fast but still, re-energize my skin at the same time.

What do you think?

your sweetest drug,
