If you love a facial mist, these vegan and cruelty free offerings from London based brand, Delune, should be grabbing your attention. I’ll flag up straight away the residue sitting at the bottom of the bottle of Jasmine & Green Tea mist – organic materials don’t behave as nicely as non-organic so colour variants, and to some degree, residue is an inevitability. I’m not bothered by it and am hoping that a good shake will see it mixed up in the water, which is where it’s meant to be.
I don’t know a great deal about this brand to be honest, but the story is very impressive and very ‘now’. Orders are made up in their Kensington studio so each batch is fresh which means far less preservatives – in fact there are no ‘nasties’ at all in any of the Delune products. Ingredients are sourced locally (and I take it that they don’t mean the wild green fields of Kensington, ahem, but counties in and around London, as well as Grasse in France for roses to distill). The thing about the mists (£18) is that they’re perfect if you like a cooling spritz with a gentle waft of fragrance and the benefits from key ingredients – i.e. green tea for detox and vitamin E from coconut – or you like to use a setting mist after make up. They each have such an individual personality but I must flag that I didn’t find them hydrating, so personally I’d be using as a gorgeous waft of lavender or rose straight from the fridge on a hot day and be very thankful for it!
If misting is your thing, you definitely need to know about this kind to skin and soul brand, and also check out the (also organic) brush cleaner called Blue Cocaine. Just for the absolute sake of it I’d love that by my sink. The mists are £18 each which seems reasonable for their nature, and they’re HERE.
