Hyaluronic acid toner Mega mist by ByBi- just another toner?

Today I am very excited to talk about toners and particularly one: the ByBi Mega mist toner formulated and launched by the clean Beauty Co team, Elsie and Dominika.
Toners have an important place in my beauty routine: I never skip them! I have been using the ByBi Mega mist for weeks now and I just even finished the last drops this morning. Did this toner meet my expectations? Find out below.



My opinion

With its lovely and fresh packaging, the Mega mist seems to have been created for me. It is housed in a glass spray bottle that delivers a fine transparent liquid solution. The smell is quite fresh and pleasant although nothing that reminds me of flowers or sweet scents.
The pH of the skin usually varies between 4 and 6 and one beauty step that is very pH disruptive is cleansing. That is why using a toner after face cleansing helps to preserve the acid mantle of the skin and to maintain its skin barrier function.

What does it do? 
The Mega mist features a lovely blend of some great beauty ingredients- soothing Rose flower water, calming Lemonbalm water,  bitter Orange flower water, and a few interesting plant/fruit extracts such as Pomegranate extract. To boost the moisturizing properties of the toner, you can also find Sodium hyaluronate- the salt of the highly praised hyaluronic acid.
Bare in mind that this toner is not organic certified, so I am not sure whether some of the ingredients have been organically grown or not.

How do I use it?
I usually use it every evening after double cleansing. It is very refreshing and hydrating. I make sure to not overspray as it can leave the skin slightly sticky.

What are the results/conclusions?  
I have finished the bottle this morning and I can tell you: I love this mist! It really gives my skin a gentle illuminating boost without being "too much". My skin is left really happy and glowing after each application. What I also like is that it provides a little bit more than what I expect from a simple toner.
On a more practical side, I really like that the toner volume is not too big- quite handy I would say to transport.

Any downsides?
I noticed that if I spray too much product, my skin become a little bit sticky which is not something I particularly like. Perhaps it is due to the presence of caprylyl/capryl glucoside which acts a natural foaming surfactant. This has put me off to spray this mist on the top of my make-up.

Bottom line
Retailing at $36.00 for 100 ml, the price tag is quite high. Having said that, this alcohol-free and refreshing toner offers a lot of benefits for the skin. It is a great addition to your routine if you are looking for that sophisticated toner that aims to bring a bit more than a just a single ingredient- traditional toner. Overall, it works really well and is really gentle. Did I say that the packaging looks really cute? In short, I would be very happy to repurchase another flacon!
