Wet n Wild It’s My Cheat Day Refreshing Hair Mist ($8.99) is a new hair refresher mist that can be used anytime, anywhere to instantly freshen up hair with a light, subtle fragrance. This launched with Wet n Wild’s new Pump Collection for Spring 2019 which, insert rolling eyes here, is a new Athleisure Makeup and Beauty Collection. We’ve already discussed that I’m not really a big fan of these gym to street collections. Maybelline teamed up with Puma to create one but prior to that Tarte had one as well as E.L.F. not to mention any other number of brands.
I sort of get the idea they are trying to sell here. You’re working out, maybe you see a hot guy, you want to look good. Or maybe they are selling the fact that your makeup will be long-wearing and can take you from a sweaty workout right into an evening out without the need for touch ups. Who knows?! I like the idea of long-wearing makeup that could be waterproof or even sweatproof. Something I can wear on a Summer day without it melting away. However, I’m really not into the idea of wearing makeup at the gym! Mind you, I have my own home gym which means this really defeats the purpose completely for me. That being said I don’t knock anyone who wants to look good at the gym! I just don’t always get the idea of wanting to wear a bunch of makeup while you’re sweating to the oldies you know?
I can get behind products like It’s My Cheat Day Refreshing Hair Mist though! I mean, granted, I tend to work out early in the AM and I shower after. But if a shower isn’t possible for you this might be a nice one to tuck in your bag to freshen up your hair after a work out. Or if you’re a smoker you can mist it on to mask the small of smoke.
I probably sound like a broken record as you’ve heard me mention it before but Pantene used to make this amazing hair refresher that smells amazing. Sadly, this isn’t even close to that formula! This is a really subtle fresh scent which adds a little softness to my hair a hint of fragrance. It’s not overpowering if you’re sensitive but could be disappointing if you’re looking for a heavier and longer lasting fragrance.
I actually have it stashed in my desk drawer as at the end of the day when I’m headed out I’ll take down my hair, shake it out, mist this on, and I’m good to go about my evening. I tend to tuck my hair back as you know when I’m at work. This is a nice way to freshen up my hair at the end of the day. Although, at 1.7 oz at $8.99 it is a bit expensive!
Do you need it?
Probably not. Like I said, it’s a bit expensive at this size! I’m sure someone at the drugstore has hair refresher that will set you back $5 or $6 bucks and it’ll be a bigger size. And it’ll likely mask the smell of smoke a lot better!
