Love Letter Series: Mist You

Dear Immunocologie Vital Ionic Mist,

You're complex, but I like that about you. What with your 13 minerals that restore ionic balance in the skin, supporting the cell rejuvenation process and working your anti-inflammatory magic to help keep my skin clear and hydrated. Environmental stress is real, and knowing that you're going to increase my epidermal vitality and reduce cellular degeneration caused by free radical activity makes me feel like everything is going to be A-OK. Also, I really like your packaging. You look great in my beauty cabinet. 

xo,
Deenie

The Vital Ionic Mist is no stranger to Bourbon & Gloss, but I am feeling particularly in love over this product lately. Meant to hydrate and detoxify the skin, this mineral-chocked mist helps balance the skin from the inside out, which in turn keeps it hydrated and rejuvenated. I like to use it after my toner, before my moisturizer. Plus, it's perfect for plane travel, if you're looking for a pick-me-up mid flight. 

A little background:

IMMUNOCOLOGIE uses a unique delivery system, Vital Oligo Science, comprised of four refined raw earth clays which, when combined, generate a negative ionic charge. That may sound bad, but it's actually good. See, sunshine, computers, cell phones, all these things generate positive iconic charges, and while it sounds counter intuitive--positive ionic charges are negative for the skin. 

This negatively charged mineral composition reduces the cellular degradation caused by positive ion and free radical activity (UV rays, laptops, phones, life), which accelerate the skin’s metabolic process. IN SHORT, Vital Oligo Science (which is unique to Immunocologie) provides skin cells with the nutrients that are essential to reinforce immune response, while enhancing skin's ability to fight pathogens. The other perk? It works with all skin types.

It sounds complicated, I know, but the main takeaway: this will help your skin look awesome.

From February 1–14, I'll be posting love letters to the things I've been obsessing over lately. From sweets to slip-ons, these are the showstoppers that are picking up my pulse this winter.
