I've never before used misting my makeup much - only sometimes, when my makeup looked well and truly cakey did I grab the plaything I use to mist my plants and misted my own face as well. It's not as nice as when using this product - this one has an added bonus to it - a wonderful aroma.
What is an hydrosol? For explaining that I am going to use a picture from LisaLise's blog:
When producing essential oils (boiling plants and then cooling the steam) one ends up with water and oil - hydrosol and the thin layer of essential oil on top of it. Though essential oils are the main goal here, throwing out the water while keeping the "baby" would be a silly thing to do - hydrosol also retains those beneficial effects the essential oil has though in remarkably lesser concentration. Basically a wonderful skin tonic :). (Lise will correct me if I got this wrong :))
Lise produces these for herself and family and friends and you can also order one from her, here. After having such a good time with the Rose skin mist, I am seriously thinking about getting the Herbal one as well. They are custom made and you get to pick your own favorites. :) As it happens I am going away soon, to a rather warm place (no, not to hell) and I think a refresher such as this will be desperately needed. :) Also: winter is coming - and office air looses all humidity - I have a hunch I will be grasping for it during winter as well.

And - for all people who have difficulties getting up in the morning - you will not believe the effect spraying your face has when still groggy - instant alertness! Warmly recommend. :D
Ma võitsin! Esimest korda elus osutusin giveaways väljavalituks - ja nüüd on mul üks looduskosmeetika pärl endal olemas, LisLise Pure Rose hydrating Skin Mist. Luksuslik toode ja hind on kaunis karm kuid mõtlen, et peaks ühe sellise veel juurde tellima, Herbali. Ma olen ahvivaimustuses ja seda ei juhtu just sageli - iseenesest on toode ülilihtne kuid kasutusvõimalused kaunis laialdased: värskendaja, meigikinnitaja, nahatoonik - kõik ühes. Kui oled rikas, siis tasub täitsa vaadata. Vaesemad peavad alternatiive otsima hakkama - võibolla leiab midagi sarnast ka meie apteekidest või looduskosmeetikapoodidest. Ma arvan, et selle ostu pean siiski veel ära tegema. Päris palju variante tuleb ette, kui otsingusse panna lillevesi või hüdrosool.
Here's another tribute to Lise - the packaging was amazingly neat :) and posted on Friday it arrived in Tallinn by Monday. Well done, Danish and Estonian mail services!
Bottle itself is sturdy plastic and has a protective cap over the pulverizer (?). When sprayed there are no big drops, it all comes out in even mist.
PS! Lise is currently holding another giveaway - samples of her Bare Basic Body Butter. There will be 8 lucky winners this time:). To participate leave a comment under her blog post and agree, that you will give her feedback on the product should you be the lucky winner. Guess who's already listed ;)
