It’s no secret that I love a good beauty product. Love to research them, try them and buy them. I love to pamper myself at home or in salons, I would particularly love to go to somewhere like Rush Hair in London, that’s if I ever manage to get there for a visit. And as of lately, my go to website is Beauty Bets. I love to learn about the latest and the greatest and also those products that have stood the test of time. Elizabeth, Beauty Bets author, knows her stuff. And what is even more is that she has created her own products . . . her very own line, By Elizabeth Dehn. I’m pretty smitten to have Elizabeth on la la Lovely . . . sharing some of her favorites (+ a giveaway)!

I know exactly when my love affair with facial mists began. In middle school, my BFF Martha got an Evian Facial Water Spray in her Christmas stocking. Her mother was—and still—is one of those timeless beauties who do elegant things like buy holiday gifts at Neiman Marcus. The original face spray was a revelation. It felt so FRENCH to spritz our faces with spring water. In the 90s, when toners were all the rage thanks to Sea Breeze and Clinique’s three-step program, I went to work for Aveda and became fanatical about the Botanical Kinetics Toning Mist. It moisturized, smelled like the Curt Cobain generation (in a good way), and looked so cool on my bathroom shelf. When I became a magazine editor, a whole world of beauty products opened up to me, including a new generation of face sprays. Heavenly, hydrating things that makeup artists were using to give models’ skin a dewy finish and spa were spritzing spas throughout facials to soothe and calm complexions (Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist is the bomb for this). I kept a chic-looking bottle of Caudalie Beauty Elixir at my desk to combat the dry cubicle air and for a quick skin pick-me-up in lieu of layering on more makeup before heading to happy hour. So smitten was I with the ritual that when I got the opportunity to create my own skincare line, BY ELIZABETH DEHN, the first product I made was a Face Spray. Yep, that’s exactly what it’s called because that’s exactly what you do with it: Spray it on your face. Anytime your skin—or your mood—needs a boost. It won’t disrupt makeup; it actually reinvigorates it. Likewise, you can spritz it on to keep powder or foundation from looking too cakey. Distilled with organic essential oils of bergamot, sweet orange, and lemon balm, it smells as juicy at it feels. And if were the kind of girl who had a motto, it would be that skin should always feel juicy!
