I recently discovered the Canadian brand Saje, which sells products that promotes natural wellness. I had never heard of the brand until I encountered it at its new location inside Toronto Eaton Centre. Although the primary focus of the store is on their essential oils and aromatherapy, I was immediately drawn to their skincare section. I was half in the market for a new facial spray since I was finishing up my favourite Sukin one and I was out of facial mists – I was all set to simply buy a replacement of the Sukin rather than try something new. But then I spied a host of facial mists at Saje and was so won over by them that I bought 2:
Rose Hydrating Euphoric Mist ($14.95 for 100ml) and Jasmine Exotic Mist ($12.95 for 100ml). I keep the Rose at home and the Jasmine for the office.
The bottles are made of high quality tinted glass for that old fashioned apothecary look. My favourite part of the bottle is the spray pump – it delivers the perfect ultra-fine mist that make most other facial mists feel like taking a hose to the face.
I’m definitely keeping the empty bottles to reuse.
I love how short the ingredient lists are:
Rose Hydrating Euphoric Mist: distilled water & essential oil of rose
Jasmine Exotic Mist: purified water; essential oil of jasmine.
They’re both nice mists to add a bit of moisture to the skin – they’re not as hydrating compared to mists that contain glycerin or hyaluronic acid, but I would say they are akin to using an Avène or Evian spray. The Rose one I use as my morning skin prep, just before I apply my serum, and the Jasmine one I use to refresh my face if it’s getting dehydrated from the dry office air. I was instructed to inhale deeply when I spritz them to get the added aromatherapy benefits – they both smell AMAZING!
Bonus: I impulse purchased this “Relax O Ring” ($4.95)
It’s coiled spring with irregular spikes and according to the enclosed literature, by rolling the ring up and down various fingers, it will stimulate different internal organs. For instance, rolling it up and down the middle finger will stimulate the liver and gall bladder, and help with haematopoiesis, detoxification, conversion of nutrients. I’ve tested it out a few times and it does feel relaxing (not painful) – I mainly got the ring to keep at my desk so that when I’m on conference calls I have something with fiddle with. 😉
(The nail polish shade I’m wearing is Essie Comfy in Cashmere – I’ll be posting about the baffling Cashmere Matte formula later this week.)
I can’t wait to try more skincare from Saje next year! On my list are Sensitive Elixir Calming Skin Serum ($19.95 for 30ml) and Herbal Balm ($9.95 for 15ml). And I’m considering getting their natural deodorants after reading this post from Style Domination – I’ve been wanting to use more natural underarm products and this sounds great.
Do you use facial mists? Have you ever heard of Saje?
