Mizon Essence Mist Twilight Facial Mist is a a gel formula that softens and hydrates skin with peptides and dragon blood. Essence Mist Twilight launched a bit ago in Korea along with a gel and regular moisturizer. Basically it was kinda a nod to Twilight as you can see from the blood red packaging and cute little bats.
No worries, this facial mist won’t make you sparkle like Edward though!
Apparently this has a combination of peptides and dragon blood which are apparently similar to snake venom. I know sounds scary but if you’re on the up and up in the Korean skincare world you’ve
likely had your run ins with snake venom, bee venom, placenta, even bird poo….! I wouldn’t take the snake venom thing too seriously, they are only likening it to it.
This comes housed in a red bottle with little bats decorating the cover. I’m not sure why they went with the vampire theme. Maybe just trying to gain some visibility during the Twilight craze? Who knows! But aside from the cute packaging I don’t feel this reminds me of vampires, Twilight, or blood anything in anyway!
None the less it’s still a very nice facial mist with some nice ingredients such as niacinamide.
I love Korean and Japanese facial mists because they are considerably better formulated and way more moisturizing than the ones you’ll find here in the US. This is a gel type mist so it’s thicker than your average liquid based mist and has an essence or serum-like quality to it that gives it a very hydrating feel. Once I mist it on I tend to pat my hands on my face to allow it to absorb more fully. It leaves my face very pleasantly moist and quite hydrated. It does have a subtle fresh floral fragrance that might upset sensitive users.
All in all this is a great little moisturizing facial mist. If you haven’t been privy to Korean or Japanese facial mists this is a good place to start. You’ll be quite surprised how much differently facial mists in Korea are formulated compared to US ones. I recommend this one for drier skin types! It adds plenty of moisture and leaves skin pleasantly plush and nourished!
I’m actually reviewing this after using it for a while because it recently popped up at www.urbanoutfitters.com. It’s actually kinda a rare product and hard to find at cost so I thought it interesting Urban Outfitters has it in stock!
Anyone every try it?
