Post-Makeup Recovery Workout with Skindinavia [product review]

Skindinavia post-makeup recovery spray

Post-makeup recovery spray. Never heard of it? Me either. However, I’m familiar with Skindinavia and their spray-on primer (which I LOVE, by the way) so I didn’t hesitate to try out their newest product.

So, what is it?

In any skincare regime you employ you’ll use some element of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Where does post-makeup recovery fit in—toning? Well, sort of. It’s kind of a new category.

The big idea with this spray is infusing your skin with zinc, magnesium, and willow within five minutes of cleansing. This is supposed to help your skin recover from a long day of makeup wearing (I read zinc helps reduce puffiness) as well as help prevent breakouts and clogged pores.

I was most eager to see if it would make a difference to my lifelong blackhead collection. Could Skindinavia post-makeup recovery spray help me?

Short story: yes, yes it can. I’m so happy.

And here’s the long story

A man stopped me as I walked through the mall and asked if I had a skin cleansing routine. He was holding a jar of face cream and I felt my shoulders rise with anxiety in anticipation of the hard sell.

But he blocked my footpath so I engaged.

“Why?”

We got into a conversation about skincare—consisting of my deflecting questions about my age, amount of sun damage on my face, etc—and the next time I looked around I was inside the store. Oh boy. Shoving samples in my purse I backed out of the store mumbling about passing through this way on my way out (yeah right). I hated everything about the experience. I get the tactic—make the person feel bad about herself so she’ll purchase your magic cure. But…there has to be a better way!

Part of my issue is I’m not confident in my skincare routine. I try loads of products but have no real idea if they’re helping or not. Perhaps you can relate. All these anti-aging serums and creams and firming agents all look and sound good but which one will work for me? Who can I talk to who’s not financially invested in the product? I mean, YouTube reviews of course but where else?

This is why I’m telling you about post-recovery makeup spray today. So when you get hauled inside the face cream mall store you can say with confidence “I don’t need your $800 system, I have the $26 spray.”

(Because it costs $26.)

Most of all, I don’t want you to walk around feeling like an old fogey like I have been for the past few months. This little spray has added a lot of, well, recovery. My skin feels fresher and healthier. It may all be in my mind but I like how I feel.
