It’s called Clarifying Witch Hazel Facial Mist, from The Beauty Bakery.
Honestly, this is the first facial mist that I’ve tried, so, I couldn’t compare it with other brands. But I’m pretty sure you’ve seen or heard Korean celebrities including facial mists as part of their beauty regimen, right? That was basically what I had in my mind when I purchased this product. No doubt, Korea has certainly become the beauty and skincare Mecca. They have even made their way to the Philippine market; however, most of their best-selling products could break your bank.
But nothing to worry about, my fellow digital damsels, we’ve got our very own local products that you’re definitely going to love and be proud of. The Beauty Bakery is one of the top sellers from Beauty MNL. They sell awesome beauty and skincare products at an affordable price! From the LOCAL FINDS tab of Beauty MNL’s website, you can see the entire list of other Philippine brands.
While I was browsing the website, I got curious about the name of the product, so, I checked out the health benefits of witch hazel. Apparently, during the old times, people used witch hazel to cure different sorts of diseases. It was like a topical medicine. They used it to reduce pain, swelling or inflammation on the skin. From minor burns to stings, itching (due to insect bites) or hemorrhoids, this has been the go-to medicine!
Nowadays, we would normally see skincare products with ‘Witch Hazel Extract”. The leaves, barks and twigs of the witch hazel plant are used to create a distilled water which then adds wondrous effect on the beauty products.
Three important things that I have learned about witch hazel extract:
1) It reduces swelling
2) It repairs broken skin and
3) It fights bacteria
No wonder why The Beauty Bakery always needs to restock on this product – it’s everyone’s favorite! You will feel the soothing and calming effect right on the very first spray. The citrus scent will simply melt your stress away. It could be used as a toner! (I know I do!) It gives the right amount of hydrating effect which is perfect for the hellish humidity in our country. By the way, this is an all-natural, homemade, handmade AND cruelty free product!
I use it anytime I need a pick-me-up moment during the day. Feeling sleepy? *mist mist* Sweating after a long walk? *mist mist*
So, I can’t wait for you to try this!
