With the summer months in full swing, my dry skin can take a huge beating and require extra moisture. No matter the season, it seems like my skin needs the extra benefits of hydration and I love turning to products that can do so for me without compromising my skin care or my makeup that I may have spent some time to put together. When I need a little extra boost of moisture, I turn to a facial spray. I have used all kinds and different brands and I’m always impressed with each in their own right, but lately I’ve been really loving the Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist and Setting Spray.
The Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist & Setting Spray ($44.00 USD – 3.3 fl.oz / 97 mL) immediate caught my eye after having tried several different products from Farmacy in the past – and loving each one. The Skin Dew is formulated with Farmacy’s proprietary GreenEnvy Echinacea which you can immediately tell once you spritz or spray the product. This spray is made to hydrate the skin by toning and restoring the radiance of your skin as well as refreshing your makeup.

When it comes to hydrating mists or setting sprays, sometimes I notice that my skin looks overly dewy or greasy but I love the way my skin feels when I spray this essence on. My skin immediately feels moisturized and hydrated while eliminating the “powdery” look and feel that some of my makeup can leave my face feeling. This spray literally helps to moisturize and sooth my skin on contact and I love it.
Since I don’t use foundation or concealer daily – this works as a great refresher (especially in the morning) to really wake up and invigorate my skin without adding harsh chemicals or products that can really draw out my natural moisture. However, I found that with using this product prior to applying any BB Cream or tinted moisturizer can really help the product apply evenly and give my face a more luminous look. As a makeup setting spray – it leaves my skin looking glowy and leaves my skin looking fresh. Like I stated before, any powder products that I use on my skin looks airbrushed and doesn’t leave a powdery finish behind. While I have used many products for setting my makeup – I especially enjoy the Skin Dew because it feels wonderful on my skin, leaves my face feeling refreshed and cool and it’s not sticky – which is the biggest plus… I hate the feeling of sticky or heavy products on my skin.
So let’s chit chat about the benefits and all that important info provide by the company:
“A versatile hydrating essence mist that tones the skin, restores radiance and sets makeup.”
Powered by Echinacea GreenEnvy – A unique patent-protected variant of Echinacea Purpurea. GreenEnvy contains the highest known concentration of phytochemical Cichoric Acid which is a potent natural antioxidant which helps protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen. Cichoric Acid also normalizes the skin pigmentation process to promote a more evenly toned complexion. Farmacy Skin Dew is farmer cultivated and scientist activated. The distilled essence of the plant is the foundation of all Farmacy products.
The product as well as anything made and created by Farmacy includes naturally derived ingredients. The products are free of Parabens, free of Formaldehyde and free of Artificial Coloring. What I love the most is that Farmacy products are not tested on animals.
Over the last year, I have tried a handful of Farmacy products and I have really enjoyed each one, but I think the Skin Dew Setting Spray may be my favorite. It has a refreshing scent that really helps to awaken the senses, it kind of reminds me of an herbal or earthy fragrance with peppermint and rosemary. The color of the product in the bottle – that green hue, kind of freaked me out at first… but it also gave me the first impression that this product is all natural. I love the size of the bottle because it makes it easy to carry with me on the go, but still offers a lot of product since one to two spritz will cover my whole face. While the spray comes with a higher price tag than most, it really lives up to the cost in my opinion and I know it will be one that I’ll continue to repurchase when I run out.
Using the product is simple – simply hold the nozzle about eight inches from your skin and spray gently across the face. You want to start at the forehead and work down to the chin. Like I mentioned previously, use this mist to give you a vitalizing and energizing mist that helps to add the extra benefit of moisture or to refresh your makeup and use to seal in your the fresh look of your makeup when you’re done applying. This is a great spray for summer because it really feels great on the skin and smells awesome.
