As a makeup artist you tend to have your tried and tested, reliable products that are perfect for any shoot or bridal booking… I also love trying the new ranges available on the market and updating my bag of beauty tricks with new inspirational beauty products.
I’ve just tried out these Hydrolats from Base Formula in Rose Otto and Orange Flower. I love the fact that they are in a pump-action spray and totally plant and flower-based. The Orange Flower one smells amazing and when I sprayed it onto my skin it felt like a refreshing and revitalising mist. The neroli fragrance is quite calming but uplifting too, especially on aching flip-flopped feet coming into Summer. It’s in my bag and ready for my next early morning!
The Rose Otto Hydrolat feels quite moisturising and light. The rose fragrance is comforting and although it is distinctive, it is not at all overpowering. I like to use this one in the evening, either a quick spritz on my skin, or as a refreshing body mist after my shower or as a room spray. I love the fact that these aromatherapy sprays are natural and can be used with other natural products and creams. I don’t know about you, but I do love a bit of every day luxury and these sprays feel like a mini-holiday after a few hours on set. I will certainly be recommended these for brides to pack in their honeymoon case too.
