Let me tell you a short story about how I found the serum that completely changed my skin...
Past-me was constantly in a battle with eczema on my temples and near my ears. It wasn't the worst case of eczema, but it was enough to bother me on really bad days.
Then, on an otherwise ordinary evening, I decided to live a little and try double cleansing... with a spicy glycolic acid cleanser. Cue, an incredibly painful perioral dermatitis flare up all over my face.
It was actually Adore's Beauty Editor Joanna who suggested I try a soothing routine, including a bright green serum that smelt... herby.
That serum was SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel and after a week of using it, my skin was essentially back to normal.
That was two years ago, and my skin and I have never looked back.
Redness? Almost gone. Flare ups on my temples? Haven't seen them since. Although this serum isn't a cure-all for redness and irritation, I still genuinely think my skin would look and feel much angrier if I ever decided to stop using it.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I was asked if I'd like to road-test the brand new essence mist version of my all-time favourite serum. I'm a team player, so naturally, I agreed.
So, from someone who would really hate to live without the original redness-reducing serum, here's my SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Essence Mist review.
What Is SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Essence Mist?
SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Essence Mist is a hydrating botanical essence in a handy (and hygienic) mist form.
Even though it's especially great for anyone who is concerned about inflammation and redness (say, from rosacea or acne), literally any skin type can benefit from the extra hydration this mist delivers. Same goes if you've just had a professional skin treatment.
Use it in the morning after cleansing before applying serums, over makeup to keep skin hydrated throughout the day, at night before bed - whenever you want, really.
