I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel that there have been so many new skincare launches this year compared to last year, and one of the newest skincare technologies is an aerosol SPF which you can mist over the top of your makeup without rubbing it in. One of such products is the Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin Moisturising Anti-UV Mist which has just launched over on Escentual, and I was excited when I was given the chance to give it a try as it sounded amazingly convenient but too good to be true at the same time. Priced at £9 for just 50ml, it’s not the most affordable sun protection product on the market but it certainly sounds like an impressive one according to its description..
The Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin Moisturising Anti-UV Mist is housed within a mini aerosol can which needs to be shaken vigorously prior to application. I don’t know how comfortable I’d feel taking this with me during the day if I was on holiday as it’s in an aerosol can which you have to be careful with in excessive temperatures but in the UK I’d imagine it’d be fine in the shade. The Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin Moisturising Anti-UV Mist has already been available to purchase in France since last year, but it’s only just reaches UK soils just in time for Summer and is described as being a rehydrating mist that will prevent skin-ageing and shield the skin from harmful UV rays.
“Providing an instant dose of freshness and comfort to the skin, the Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin Anti-UV Mist is enriched with patented complex aquagenium which stimulates the skin to rehydrate itself continuously. Invisible yet efficient, the fine mist contains a Cellular Bioprotection® patent and sunscreen patent, which reinforces the skin’s defence mechanisms, ensuring the skin is optimally protected at all times. Ideal for use on adults and children, the refreshing Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin mist will not stain clothing and can also be used to set makeup. After use, the skin will be stronger, better protected and have a healthy, radiant glow.”
The directions for the mist are as follows; shake well before use and hold the Hydrabio Mist spray 20cm away from the face and neck, spritz and leave to dry. Reapply throughout the day to rehydrate and reinforce protection, and the mist is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, paraben-free, alchohol-free and fragrance-free. The first time I used the spray, I tested it on my bare face as I was convinced it’d spray a thick white cream which would ruin makeup but I needn’t have worried as it’s more akin to a refreshing water mist which you really can spray over your makeup without smudging and smearing.
This mist is not designed to be a standalone facial sun protection which you could apply to sunbathe in. Instead it’s marketed as being more of an on the go option which allows you to top up your protection without having to remove all of your makeup which is just so convenient and it delivers a burst of refreshment at the same time which I’ve really been enjoying with the humidity we’ve been experiencing lately. Not only does the mist contain an SPF of 30, it also carries UV protection for extra peace of mind. I still apply my facial SPF as part of my morning skincare routine, but there’s no doubt that the Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin Moisturising Anti-UV Mist is an handbag staple for top ups throughout the day.
