Beauty Supply: JustBe Santal Mist


Like most things in life, you learn from your friends. My friend Elizabeth got me hooked on clean beauty and I still take her recommendations. When she told me that the JustBe Santal Face Mist reduced redness, hydrates and helps prevent blackheads, I couldn’t ignore it. I have to be honest, I bought the product a few months ago and just got around to using it within the past few weeks, but I am in love. I think it is better than my usual rose water sprays, especially for wintertime. Between the steam heat in our apartment and the brisk wind outside, my face needs all the hydration help it can get.

I use this spray between 2-4 times a day. After I wash my face in the morning or evening, I will generously spray my face with 1-2 mists. After it has absorbed and reduced the redness in my face, I apply my moisturizer. If I am going makeup free for the day, or heading to bed, I will mist my face once more to lock in the moisture. This keeps my skin supple and hydrated throughout the day/night. It’s also super refreshing when you need a mid-day pick-me-up, it’s not as strong as espresso but it might just be the next best thing.

I especially love the sprayer on this product. You have to keep it about 8-12″ from your face when spraying because it is so powerful. The smell is a bit woodsy, but perfectly pleasant. Over the past few weeks I noticed my skin has a smoother texture, reduced redness, less blackheads and breakouts in general. For the first January in years, my skin isn’t completely dehydrated and flakey.
