La Bella Figura Jardin De Fleurs

I recently repurchased this hydrating facial mist. After finishing my first bottle I decided to try something new (and cheaper). Ah I should have known better. This is something I never realized I needed and first bought on a whim. It wasn’t until I was without that I realized – I can’t live without this!

What is is exactly?

From labellafigura.com:

A Hydrating Floral And Enzyme Mist With Super Low Weight Hyaluronic Acid

Jardin de Fleurs Skin Revitalizer refreshes and softens skin while gently restoring elasticity and promoting the renewal of damaged skin cells. Raw Coconut Water and super low weight Hyaluronic Acid deliver and hold intense hydration in connective tissue between cells leaving skin plump, moist and dewy. This awakened state of the skin helps for easy absorption of active serums and moisturizers and effective delivery for high performance. Edelweiss Extract and White Peony soothe and calm and help balance PH levels in the skin. Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Rose Damascena and Carrot Seed Hydrosols aid in reducing skin inflammation and help to create a protective layer for sensitive skin. Helichrysum, Licorice Root and Plantain Leaf target brightness in tone and help stimulate active cell growth.

Ingredients: Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Flower Water, Raw Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Juice/Water*, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower Water, Centaurea Cyanus (Cornflower) Water, Helichrysum Italicum Distillate*, Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Water, Daucus Carota (Carrot Seed) Water, Leontopodium Alpinum (Edelweiss) Extract*, Camellia Sinesis (White Peony) Extract, Hibsicus Sabdariffa Flower Extract*, Glycrrhiza Glabra (Licorice Root) Extract*, Cereus Grandiflorus (Cactus) Flower Extract, Plantago (Plantain) Lanceolata Leaf Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Vegetable Glycerin, Leuconostoc (Radish Root) Ferment Filtrate, Ethyl Alcohol (Non-GMO)*

*Certified Organic

Skin Type: Skin seeking deep cellular hydration and new collagen promotion. Excellent for mature, dry and acne prone skin. Not recommended for sensitive or allergy prone skin.

Suggested Use: Use before applying active serums, treatments or moisturizers or after applying makeup to set and create a dewy finish. Use anytime of the day to awaken dry or dull skin and boost hydration. After cleansing, mist onto face, neck and décolletage. May be used on a cotton pad as a toner or gentle cleansing treatment.

The effects of this remind me of Laura Mercier’s Skin Perfecting Water Moisture Mist, undoubtedly one of my most beloved skincare products of the past. I use it the same way: after washing and toning, I spray this on and immediately apply my serums/moisturizers. Without this I find my moisturizer is not quite enough even when applied on damp skin. I could get away without this in the summer but wintertime forget it. My skin feels less tight and my makeup applies smoother. It’s also wonderful to mist overtop mineral foundation if you’ve gone overboard and applied too much.

When I was younger (I’m 30 by the way), I wanted to wear as much makeup as possible to cover up my skin. Now that I’m older I want to wear as little makeup as possible – and products like this one allows me to do so.

By the way, this Clementine Fields video is what sold me on buying this the first time.

A Year of Green Beauty

It’s been a year since I read No More Dirty Looks and literally threw away all my beauty products to start anew.

Having always been obsessed with skincare and makeup, over the years I had found my “holy grail” products; Cle de Peau concealer, YSL Touche Eclat, Armani Luminous Silk, Shiseido’s liquid eyeliner, NARS Deep Throat blush, Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair, SK II Essence, Embryollise Lait Creme Concentrate, Aveda’s Shampure, my beloved Fracas perfume…

I did it all at once. I went to Whole Foods and bought one of everything I felt I needed – mascara, concealer, shampoo, blush and threw out all my old “bad” products. I kept the Fracas and Armani foundation for “emergencies” but finally threw them out for good a couple months ago.

I hated everything at first and debated going back to my old favourites. My skin freaked out. The natural mascara would smudge under my eyes and make my eyes burn. My hair never felt or looked clean. Even so, I soldiered on because of two things: the knowledge that these chemicals are bad for my health and most of these products are tested on animals.

I spent a lot of money and tried a lot of products throughout the year. After some trial and error, I found new favourites that challenge my old toxic ones. My skin is clearer. My hair feels healthier. My head hurts less (I suffer from migraines). I FEEL better.

I learned not every company claiming to be green really are. Many give the illusion they are good for the environment and you but if you examine their ingredients you’ll see it’s all a lie. Even Whole Foods sells products with toxic chemicals in them!

I look forward to sharing my new, clean and non toxic favourites with you. Stay tuned…
