Review: Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist

  Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist 150ml 
 ( Price MYR 141 )

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I am a regular user of certain Dermalogica products. My staple from them are the Ultracalming Cleanser and the Skin Hydrating Masque, which is great for my sensitive and dehydrated skin. Their Multi-Active Toner fell out of the love zone when I discovered Hada Labo's Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion. My skin has never been better when I made the switch...which I am glad!

Though I am using that one on a regular basis, I thought of going full fledge on anti-aging products for my night time routine. Now, this is where this Antioxidant mist comes into the picture. When I read the description given on the product, I was sold! Those are the areas which I want to target and I greatly hope that this product will be able to do all that it claims.

Product Description

A refreshing antioxidant shield with flash-firming properties to improve skin texture while intensely hydrating dry, dehydrated skin. Convenient mist-on formula supplements skin's protective barrier by creating an active antioxidant shield of White Tea, Licorice and Vitamin E to fight damaging free radicals, while a patented polypeptide helps prevent the signs of aging caused by Advanced Glycation End-products. A highly-active Vitamin C complex, combined with collagen-stimulating peptides, encourages firmness and elasticity to help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Hyaluronic Acid acts as a hydration magnet to quench dehydrated skin while Pea Extract creates instant firming action to lift and tighten. Rose and Clove extracts comfort and refresh skin.

My Experience

Texture and colour: Watery and clear.

Scent: Faint rose scent, which is bearable.

As always, Dermalogica's packaging always scores points from me. The nozzle spray spritz the mist very finely unto my skin and I think if I ran out of the product, I will definitely recycle the packaging. 

The mist acts like any ordinary toner for me, which is used to prep my skin before I massage my anti-aging oil and serums. Before I bought this product, I was a little hesitant in the beginning, in fear that I may develop the same allergy reactions when I used one of the products from the same Age-Smart series. My face literally developed rashes the next day and I had to consult my own doctor to calm the allergy down. Took me 4 days for it to subside! So, using this product is a 'huge' step for me.

Thankfully, my skin is able to tolerate this mist and I did not experience any burning sensations while using this. This mist does provide hydration to my skin...but, if I were to compare it with Hada Labo, of course the latter wins hands down. Other than the hydration, I somehow don't see remarkable changes on my skin , even though with 4 months plus of usage. Though 'visually' there isn't much, I am hoping it is working deep down the layers of my skin....which, perhaps....will tell a different story in the future?


I can't really say I am in love with this mist...or hate it either. The reason I like it is because of it's anti-aging properties, which I am able to incorporate into my night time routine. However, it does not provide enough hydration for my dehydrated skin...unlike my favourite Hada Labo. One more gripe, I don't understand why Dermalogica products in Malaysia is more expensive from the rest of the countries?

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.
