Have you heard of Mukama Botanica? I love trying products that come from businesses here in Hawaii and I’m excited to share this brand with you. If you’ve been a long time follower of this blog, you may have seen a variety of skincare products from brands that were started right here in the islands. Today, I’m ecstatic to share with you this new to me company – Mukama Botanica. And, their High Vibe Face Mist.

High Vibe Face Mist

I’m all about a great face mist, especially when it has ingredients that will help to heal and balance out my sensitive skin. This face mist has become my go-to in my skincare regimen over the last few weeks. I love its lightweight feel on my face and fresh scent. If you are a lover of rose tonics or rose water but don’t like the strong fragrance that it can have, this is the mist for you. Lightly scented and perfect for year-round. I’ve been using it daily to combat my dry skin. It has also been a savior to help me feel pampered while going through this pandemic lockdown. I tend to gravitate towards products that are lightweight and this mist is IT!

Did I mention how gorgeous the packaging is? Totally luxurious and such a pretty addition to any vanity.

High Vibe Face Mist retails for $55.00 (4.05 fl oz / 120 mL) and is a facial mist that boosts your skin and mood. This mist is a pH-balanced potion that is formulated with high vibe ingredients and aromatics inspired by sacred Hawaiian plant healing. I love that it is perfect for all skin types and my sensitive skin LOVED this product. It’s created with 100% natural and organic ingredients and handmade in the USA.

Using the High Vibe Face Mist is as easy as pressing the spray button. Simply mist your face a few times after cleansing and rub the product into the skin prior to using your moisturizer. You can also use it as a refresher during the day. You want to make sure that you shake the bottle before using it and store it at room temperature. Keep it out of direct sunlight.

Is it worth the price?

I know what you’re thinking… and I know you’re going to ask me this question, so I figured I’d answer it for you. At the $55 cost, is this facial mist worth the price tag? Well, I’ve been using this mist daily for about a month now and using it generously I might add. I still have most of the bottle left considering how much I’ve utilized so far. The mist is fine so it will cover a broad area. That’s what I like about it. I think this mist will last quite a while even with daily use. Considering there are so many luxury skincare products on the market today – yes, I think this is definitely worth the price tag. You are not just getting a product, but a mission and key ingredients that are so beneficial to your skin.


Key Ingredients include Rose Water (to help calm and improve your skin’s hydration. Tangerine to give your skin some love and protecting antioxidants. Sandalwood to regulate the skin’s oil production. Main Ingredients: Hamamelis Virginiana (Organic Witch Hazel), Rosa Damascena (Organic Rose) Water, Santalum Spicatum ((Organic Sandalwood), Citrus Reticulata (Organic Tangerine), Rosa Damascena (Organic Rose), and Arginine.

Mukama Botanica’s two best-selling products include their multi-purpose Skin Superfood Serum (which I can’t wait to get my hands on) and their High Vibe Face Mist (pH-balanced toner/face mist). Their Skin Superfood Serum is packed with rich antioxidants and vitamin C from guava (one of my favorite fruits). Both products have been covered in the January, February and March 2020 issues of Vogue.

Overall – I’m definitely impressed and loving my Mukama Botanic High Vibe Face Mist. It has been the one product in my skincare regimen over the last month that I’ve used consistently. Being on lock-down due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, I’m constantly wanting some consistency in my life. This facial mist has been my place of zen for pampering during a time when it’s not really feasible. It’s rare for me to say “Go out and pick one up for yourself…” but in this instance, I say – “Do It!”

Today I’m excited to finally bring you my thoughts on a few skin care products from ZenMed.  I have had these products in my possession now for about 2 months (or more) and I am happy to say that I can finally discuss my results with all of you.

As many of you know, I have started to really live my life differently.  Daily workouts and exercise and cutting out things like rice and soda from my diet (eating healthier in general) have been a part of my norm the last two months.  Because of this, trying out new skin care has been a huge challenge.  As your body starts to really purge the junk stuff from your system, sometimes your skin can get really good quickly or completely freak out.  For me, it freaked out and really went bonkers with some of my skin care products.  So, it took longer to try out products that I would normally be able to experience results with within a month or so.  That’s why it took me so long to get this post up – I wanted to make sure it was not the product that caused my eczema flare up.

With that being said – let’s talk about ZenMed.  ZenMed offers a plethora of products that they call:  Reconstructive Skincare.  It’s basically a product line that offers support to your skin.  They claim that you can get healthier skin when following their pH balanced cleansing and moisturizing regime.  I had the opportunity to try four different products from the line and I’m going to share my thoughts on each of them with you.

The Gentle Cleansing Cream is a light cleansing cream that feels really nice on the skin when applying.  You apply this product to your wet face using circular motions.  Once done, rinse it off with warm water and pat your skin dry.  This cleanser is gentle enough to be used on your skin twice a day – though I only use it once a day at night.  This cleanser removes impurities from your skin and leaves your face feeling refreshed.  No irritations or over-drying which is great for my sensitive skin.  This product is vegetarian formulated so that it leaves your skin clean without stripping it of your vital oils.  The formulation is pH balanced and preserves your natural pH so your skin is left feeling soothed and nourished.  ZenMed states that this is a product that is ideal for Rosacea sufferers.  I love how soft my skin feels but it is left hydrated and clean when I’m done cleansing with this product.

ZenMed’s Anti-Redness Mask is next on the list.  This is a pretty cool product because ZenMed says that this is ideal for minimizing the after-effects of a sunburn since it contains Certified Organic Aloe Vera Gel.  The Anti-Redness mask has a very effective anti-inflammatory agent included called Willow Bark Extract.  The ingredient has long been know to provide anti-irritant and anti-redness effects to sensitive skin.  It’s soothing and non-comedogenic using Green Tea and Cucumber to offer a quick solution for getting redness out of the skin and fast.  This product can even be used on sensitive areas like eyelids to help calm the skin.

I have been enjoying all of the products I’ve tried, but the Anti-Redness Mask still intrigues me.  When you use it, your skin feels immediately cooled and calm.  I find that this is one of my favorites for soothing my dry skin from the colder months.  I noticed that the redness around my nose and on my cheeks are not there as much as they normally would be.

Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 30 – Well, I honestly wasn’t sure if I would like this product once I squeezed it out of the tube.  Here’s the deal, when something says “lightweight and sheer formula”, I kind of expect it to be as such.  But squeezing it out of the tube, it seemed to be a bit thick.  But, I was relieved when it smoothed onto my skin quickly and felt like it was lightweight on.  Looks can be deceiving (that’s for sure).  This product is lightweight and sheer on the face.  It’s oil-free with an SPF of 30 which is awesome, but it does leave your skin looking a bit dewy.  But, that didn’t bother me one bit, since I really liked that it was gentle on my skin and super easy to apply.  This cream absorbs quickly which I love so it’s also recommended for use under concealers or foundations (which I don’t really use).  I love that I can use it on its own.  I LOVE that it has sunscreen in it so it’s great for days like today when I need to run out of the house.

Like other products I’ve tried from ZenMed, this moisturizer has Green Tea and Certified Organic Aloe Vera which helps to calm the skin and moisturize.

Retail: $24.95

The Organic Cream Exfoliator is free of parabens, abrasive particles, soap, oil and animal testing.  This product was formulated and created to help oxygenate and revive the most sensitive skin types.  This exfoliator utilizes rounded jojoba microspheres that work to help scrub and get rid of the surface of dead skin cell build-up while allowing for maximum penetration of your skin serums and moisturizers.  It helps to visibly smooth and refine your skin’s texture.

I am very picky about the type of exfoliators I use and I was amazed at how much I enjoyed this one.  The product is very creamy based but as you work it onto the skin, the jojoba microspheres massage and exfoliate the skin.  This product can be used daily, though I only use it on my face once a week because while it’s gentle, I think it’s too much for me to use more than that.  After the first use, I noticed my skin was definitely softer and smoother and I noticed a big difference in the texture of my skin after using it the last month.

Retail:   $34

Overall, I continue to use the  ZenMed products I was sent to try as a part of my skincare regimen.  I use it in combination with other products from other brands that I love and enjoy.  The Skin Support products for Dry Skin have been a great addition to my skincare routine and while they aren’t particularly drugstore priced, they are reasonable in cost and fairly affordable in comparison to other products I’ve tried before.

I’m not quite sure yet if I will be continuing the use of these products once I run out of my current stash, but I definitely have some favorites.  The Anti-Redness Mask and Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 30 have been some of my go-tos lately, so I may continue using them.  I also hope to purchase the Support Serum and Nutrient Boost Spray to try out for myself, so if I do – I’ll be sure to share my thoughts with all of you.

Have you heard of ZenMed before?  If so, comment below and tell me what you think.  If not, are there any products I’ve tried that you may be interested in?

Happy Aloha Friday!
