I bought this cute little pink bottle at Hachi Hachi, a Japanese 2-dollar store (similar to Daiso). It is Sana Hadanomy collagen mist, comes with an eye catching sticker and tight plastic wrap over the bottle.
With a moisture retention formula, 1000mg of micro collagen, hyaluronic acid Na (Nano), honey and Acelora extract (great source of vitamin C), this mist sounded promising
Collagen molecules in skin care products are normally too large to be absorbed through the skin. I am not sure how micro is the micro collagen in this formula, but I did not expect the mist to do miraculous things other than a boost of hydration to the skin.
Even with that, it still manages to surprise me The first spray hit me pretty hard on the face, literally.
Turns out, inside the bottle is not a liquid but a clear gel, which comes out of the nozzle a lot thicker, nothing near the fine mist magic of Tatcha Luminous dewy skin mist.
And that means patting/ massaging action is needed to help the gel absorb and disappear into the skin. It also means it is best to be used under makeup, not over it. When I am settled with that fact, I actually enjoy the “mist” a bit more.
I opt to use this product before foundation, like a primer, and at night between my toner and my moisturizer/ oil, like a serum/ essence. It is lightly scented, floral I think, but it does not stick around, so I am fine with that.
With the gel texture, I doubt that I could obtain a finer mist with a smaller hole on the nozzle so I’ll continue using this mist as it is.
Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol, Glycerin, Hydrolyzed collagen, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Methylparaben, Carbomer, Gellan Gum, Acrylates/c10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Hydroxide, Honey, etc.
The mist contains no colorant/ mineral oil. The bottle is 8.5oz/ 250ml, cost me about $15. The Hadanomy line also has a lotion (i.e. toner), milk and cream.
