January Labs Restorative Tonic Mist: Review

January Labs is a newer brand to me. I grabbed a few items from them late last year. I’ve been working my way through a few of their products. I like that they’re a natural brand that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. It’s affordable and with good ingredients. Always a good beginning with a brand for me. I just finished my bottle of their Restorative Tonic Mist so it’s up first for review. Details per January Labs:

Our essential mist creates a powerful Stratum Barrier to protect and repair your skin, maintain hydration and prevent moisture loss. Use often throughout the day to reset proper Ph, minimize pore size and prevent breakouts.

  • Sodium PCA: A natural humectant responsible for binding moisture to the skin cells.
  • Olive Oil: Helps maintain the elasticity and softness of skin.

January Labs is a small company with basic packaging. The Restorative Tonic Mist comes in a clear plastic bottle that looks like a very basic bottle. January Labs believes in ‘Less is More’ which I like. I’m perfectly happy not paying for a luxe bottle and having an affordable skincare line with good ingredients. At $24 for 4 oz you can afford to buy this face mist.

Honestly, I like the idea of a face mist toner because it’s easy and feels nice and refreshing to randomly spray it on. In essence face mist sprays are just fancy water so I love it when they’re priced accordingly. I hate alcohol in toners and I love witch hazel for it’s astringent properties. Add in some aloe, rose flower water, olive oil, calendula and you have a nice refreshing mist with a little bit of everything. It smells light with a hint of lime and rose. I liked it overall and I would buy it again.
