So this is a rather exciting and different new skincare launch. Immediately I am interested in this because it is a mist. I am obsessed with stuff you can mist! I have no idea why, but I think it must be mainly to do with convenience, and probably quite a lot to do with fun! When I find out that a product I love comes in a mist format, I get very excited! When it comes to combining 2 products I love – serum and moisturiser – then my enthusiasm goes off the scale! Well that is what we are looking at with the new NEOMIST Face Formula Global Anti-Ageing Cream-Serum Mist.
I featured this ‘first of its kind’ in my most recent beauty news video, and I have been using it for a few days. Not only am I benefiting from some serious time saving in my beauty routine but it actually gives very nice instant results too.
They are calling this ‘the mother of skin’ which does make me giggle a little bit! But it’s made by a French lab so I don’t think there’s any humour intended. I am hoping this can deal with the mother of all skincare problems – wrinkles and dehydration – it sounds like it has its gloves on and is ready to go!
The instructions say to mist 2 to 3 pumps over your face being careful to avoid spraying into the eyes. Because I always like to feel the product on my skin, I find that I need a few pumps more – probably 6 – to get a nice comfortable finish. You can spray it into your palms and then press on to the skin, but where’s the fun in that?

Neomist uses a technological innovation called Water Plant Emulsion which is a patented ‘micro-emulsion procedure’ which allows oil and water to be effectively mixed. This micellar technology enables a super concentrated yet ultra light dose of active ingredients (of which there are 50) to be optimally effective. All the good stuff is contained within tiny droplets of water which are able to absorb into the skin super fast. With this technology, there is no need for micro-encapsulation of the actives and therefore, they are more readily available to the skin.
Tests have shown that NEOMIST Face Formula increases levels of the protein filaggrin which works to protect the skin’s barrier function and combat dehydration. It has also been shown to increase levels of glycosaminoglycans (polymers represented primarily by hyaluronic acid) which help to maintain skin hydration. So hopefully we are looking super plumped juicy skin.
It is also packed full of antioxidants to fight environmental aggressors, and soothe, repair and renew the skin.
I feel this has an instant softening and smoothing effect on my skin as it sinks in immediately. It has the lightest texture yet is super nourishing and hydrating. It makes a lovely base for makeup and everything goes on beautifully.
I would need to use this for longer to assess any actual anti-ageing benefit, but the trials look good and it is definitely lovely to use with great instant skin smoothing benefits. Also, just one product to pack when you are travelling? Amazing!! Plus it’s perfect for people who want to look after their skin but don’t want to faff around with a tonne of different products and steps.
NEOMIST Face Formula Global Anti-Ageing Cream-Serum Mist is available exclusively at Selfridges for £135 50ml. What do you think?
