Anyone who likes to use a hydrating mist. :) We especially recommend Liquid Hydration, if your skin prefers multiple, light hydrating layers, is prone to dehydration, or is sensitive, or you are using strong actives (e.g. anti-acne such as benzoyl peroxide or anti-aging such as tretinoin) known to dry the skin or compromise the skin barrier.

how to use it?

After cleansing, apply mist morning and/or evening. Close your eyes and spray all over your face from about 20-25 cm (~9 inches) away. Let it sink in and follow with the rest of your routine. 

If you also use a liquid exfoliant (such as Smooth Out, Cheer Up or Calm Down), we recommend to start with the exfoliant and follow with the toner spray. If you use C-Glow with Liquid Hydration, we recommend to start with C-Glow and follow with Liquid Hydration mist.

Liquid Hydratation

Produkt používam už tretí rok a som veľmi spokojná. Oceňujem, že sa začal predávať s rozprašovačom. V kombinácii s A-pad ho používam v rannej rutine na moju zmiešanú pleť. Pleť sa mi zlepšila, ustúpilo mastenie pleti aj akné.

Good product but...

I'm very disappointed to see that there are PEG/PPG in some of your products, including this one and the c-glow among others. So i won't buy back, unless that ingredient disappears.

Perfect for dry cold winters

I used this while visiting with my sister in Colorado, it's so dry and cold but this saved my skin.

In love with Geek&Gorgeous products.

I’ve been using Liquid Hydration for the first time but been using almost all other G&G products for about 2 years now and can honestly say that I can see huge difference on my not always perfect skin. Liquid Hydration is a perfect extra step in the routine I have learned since started with G&G and I am very happy to be a bit of a Geek now thanks to such an education and help like cheat sheet from G&G and many great helpful posts on social media. Many thanks for doing such a great job to women all around and I am more than happy to share my secrets with friends who realized that my skin looks much better now. Big fan of yours! Good luck and all the best! With love Denisa from Slovakia 🇸🇰

Not for me

I found this product irrited my skin. My skin is naturally sensitive and I tried to use this toner to calm and soothe my skin. Unfortunately it only made things worse, it stinged my face and would turn even redder. None of these ingredients bother me in othed products but this mixture is not for me. Still love G&G and their other products but I would not recommend this one. Stress less is way better in soothing and calming. Still giving 3 stars because the texture and absorbtion are great.
