Test-Drive a Techie New Facial Mist

Some days I literally spend hours responding to pitches about new beauty products. You should see the things people send me. Crystals blessed by goddesses. Toeless boots for winter pedis. Homemade mind freshener (yes, mind—not room—which wouldn’t been much better in this case). It’s really rather hilarious. Then there’s the ‘maybe’ pile. This is where the actual testing happens. Obviously I don’t use the Scientific Method, but I’d like to think I’ve seen and tried enough to sift out the winners. In the case of the AquaLiv Infotone Face Mister, however, I’m at a bit of a loss. I really WANT this thing to work. I want to believe that its BioT™ advanced water technology truly does “turn regular water into a powerful tonic that when misted over the face encourages optimal hydration and clear, youthful, glowing skin.” Doesn’t that sound impressive? I thought so, too. I’ve also fallen for the cute little mineral clay ball inside that gives the water its super powers. And yet, I’m still no scientist. The only way to deduce whether Mr. Mister can deliver all of the dewy hydration it promises is to create a test case. I need five volunteers with parched skin who are willing to spritz their faces for one week and report back with their findings. Lab coat not required. Who’s in?

UPDATE: Congrats to Gigi, Laura, Shannon, Sandra and Martina on winning this giveaway. We are looking forward to hearing all about your well-hydrated skin.
