I love face sprays for an overall re-boot, especially in hot weather. I’ve been told that treating your face with any of the fine-spray refreshing mists out on the market (some of them simply thermal water) doesn’t ruin your makeup’it actually perks it up. And my colleagues assured me that it’s perfectly fine to spray your face at your desk (I was thinking that it doesn’t fall under good office etiquette, and could even look a little kooky).
Since they gave the green light, I’ve been spraying Etival Ener-C Mist ($25) with impunity, discreetly, late afternoons during the wilting hour. It’s designed to hydrate and energize the skin. For me, it simply has magic powers of resuscitation with its comforting, light scent of orange. But the way Etival’a new extensive skin care line at Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix’describes it, Ener-C Mist is like a nutritious drink for the face. It contains Actigen 02, which the company says is a ginseng derivative that ‘acts as a catalyst to improve cell function’. It also has a pack of vitamins and antioxidants. And, if that’s not enough multitasking for you,Vitamin C ester brightens and firms skin, too.
