I received BRAD Biophotonic Skin Care Anti-Fatigue Mist as a gift last year, and never really tried it because I thought the spray was only meant to be used whenever you felt physically or emotionally fatigued, not understanding that your skin can be fatigued as well. Nevertheless, its invigorating, spa-like aroma actually does calm the mind, while soothing the skin.
WHAT IT DOES/INGREDIENTS
The regenerating serum mist is meant to sooth, hydrate and revitalize skin with an impressive list of ingredients. Its star ingredient is colloidal silver, which acts as a natural anti-microbial to promote healing. After doing some research, I found that the jury on colloidal silver is still out. Some websites rave about the wonders of its ability to heal skin conditions such as eczema, while others warn there is no scientific evidence that proves the many benefit claims. Moreover, it could potentially be harmful if large doses are absorbed by the body’s tissues…but you would really have to practically bathe in it for anything serious to happen to you. Nevertheless, for anyone concerned about this, instead of using the product on your skin, you can carry it around while traveling to protect against airborne bacteria by misting onto the air around you or pillows.
The ingredients list also includes bio-fermented plant acid blends, meant to minimize the look of pores and brighten the skin; vitamin C, which aims to protect skin from photo damage caused by UVA and UVB radiation; noni, which may stimulate the immune system; camu camu berry for improved circulation; and, lavender and geranium, both of which soothe irritation and have aromas that calm the nerves and balance the mind.
You know that traditional calming scent you always smell when you enter the spa that allows you to drift off into a tranquil state of bliss? That’s what this mist smells like. It’s relaxing and warm; however, the scent doesn’t linger. I once sprayed it liberally all over my body after getting out the shower and the fragrance dissipated within minutes; however, this is not advertised as something to use for scent purposes, and I’m OK with not smelling like a spa everywhere I go. In fact, if the scent did linger, I wouldn’t wear it during the day, and would restrict it to bedtime use. When I need a daytime boost, I spritz a little bit onto a scarf or tissue and will inhale the soothing aroma.
I think I’ve said enough about how great it smells. As for the hydration factor, it does do a good job. I first used the product on a day when the temperature was unusually low, resulting in my skin feeling dry, and the mist immediately revitalized the dry patches on my face. I did apply it a few times throughout the day to make sure my skin was well hydrated; this is something I find I have to do with almost every face spray I’ve ever tried. That said, I would love it if this came in a smaller size for easy transport.
It costs about $65 online.
