The Allies of Skin Molecular Saviour Probiotics Repair Mist is marketed as a daily multi-use, handbag and travel skincare essential that is nutrient rich, and an anti-bacterial supercharged ‘treatment’ facial mist that refreshes thirsty skin on the go. The packaging is a sleek, matte black bottle that fits in your handbag or carry-on luggage, and comes with a laundry list of power-packed ingredients beneficial for your skin. Scented like the prettiest of rose water, the mist – which also has aloe vera as its base – is infused with a blend of antioxidants and probiotics that supposedly ‘cling’ to the skin due to its anti-evaporation formula.
What drew me to it was its promise of probiotics and 6 Antioxidants like Lactobacillus Ferment, Niacinamide and Acai Berry for “glowing and dewy” complexion. Who wouldn’t want that for their skin, especially when stuck in the drying draft of an airplane for hours? It also promises to fight signs of fatigue and protect from the damaging effects of everyday exposure to stress and pollutants.
I followed the instructions: to spritz on a layer after cleansing over my face and neck, also multiple times during the day, while sat at my work desk. The feeling of refreshment in instantaneous, although I found the scent of rose water a tad too overwhelming. Great that I was at my desk, and fairly far away from the person next to me. Thinking about my impending long flight coming up, I was hoping to bring this nifty bottle in my carry on; But because of the scent, I might just opt for regular ol’ – if I might say, mildly scented – aloe spray instead. Considering how close airplane passengers are seated in cattle class, the strong scent might cause more stress from an agitated fellow traveller to offset the benefits of having dewy skin throughout my journey.
The list of ingredients in the Molecular Saviour Probiotics Repair Mist is impressive enough to list; And this writer would recommend getting it if you’re a lover of rose-based scents… and glowing, dewy skin:
