I hate men. Yup, I said it. And I’m not worried about being politically incorrect or hurting anyone’s feelings right now. I’m generalizing, stereotyping, and being extremely prejudicial because this epidemic of the f*boy has gotten out of control. Lately I’ve witnessed too many women lose their self-confidence and hope because the men they’re dating aren’t being honest. This new-age selfish and unkind approach to dating that men are embracing has me extremely frustrated (among other emotions). Men are proud to wear this title, mostly due to social media. And it’s causing a downward spiral in this generation’s potential and proclivity towards healthy relationships. But now I’m fed up, and it’s time to get my confidence and optimism back using face mists.
My desire for companionship and real love has led me to fall into situations with people that didn’t deserve me. Even if it’s not obvious, I can feel that it’s definitely taking a toll on my mental health and self-esteem. I try to be a good woman and enter all of my relationships with an honest tongue and open heart. And frankly, it angers me that I have to be aware of men that are intentionally doing the opposite. My friend must’ve been also stewing in her own frustration because one day she randomly sent me a hilarious text. She jokingly told me that she was going to invent an F*Boy Spray. Something we needed so that we could know immediately when a guy was going to be no good to date.
I was ready to invest ASAP for her to get the company off the ground. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could spray a magical mist onto a new suitor and instantly know their intentions? Or at least know if they were an undercover f*boy? Unfortunately, that’s not real life. So how vexed I’ve been lately has me constantly frowning up my face. And if there’s anything that can snap me out of my feelings ASAP, it’s the threat of wrinkles forming. This made me remember that although there isn’t a magical spray for f*boys just yet, amazing Face Mists do exist. And Face Mists formulated with rose in particular provide calming effects while also improving your overall skin health. And that’s exactly what I need.
CAUDALIE BEAUTY ELIXIR
The CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir face mist touts itself as being inspired by Queen Isabelle of Hungary’s infamous Elixir of Youth. This is because it almost immediately gives you a beaming glow, using 100% natural and plant-based ingredients. It uses green grape to moisturize the skin and boost its natural radiance. The peppermint and rosemary essential oils refresh your face and help tighten your skin, and visibly minimize pores. Additionally, it has rose essential oil which soothes and heals skin, and also has anti-anxiety effects that mellow you out. So it’s perfect to spray on anytime you need a calming and skin-refreshing boost throughout the day. You can also use this Face Mist as a toner after cleansing or even as a setting spray after makeup. And its therapeutic scent from the combination of all of the essential oils is the cherry on top.
LANCOME ROSE MILK FACE MIST
The LANCOME Rose Milk Face Mist combines the powers of rose water and Hyaluronic Acid to provide all day hydration. The rose water also soothes your skin and leaves it feeling softer and looking smoother. It has milk in the name because of its lotion-like original texture but it sprays out like a misty cloud. This is great because the mist is super moisturizing, and smooths and re-blends your makeup mid-day. The Face Mist also uses acacia honey to give your skin a nice subtle dewy glow. Use it before or after makeup, or honestly anytime during the day when you need a little extra hydration.
DERMALOGICA ANTIOXIDANT HYDRAMIST
The DERMALOGICA Antioxidant HydraMist works hard for your skin after cleansing, or as a reviving mist throughout the day. The Face Mist uses pea extract and Vitamin-C to firm the skin, and clove extract to refreshen it. It also uses white tea, licorice and Vitamin-E to form a shield of protection from antioxidants and signs of aging. And while working to fight against damage, it leans on rose extract to hydrate and also comfort your skin. Balance is key.
THAYERS ROSE PETAL WITCH HAZEL FACIAL MIST
The THAYERS Rose Petal Witch Hazel Facial Mist combines its renowned and proprietary witch hazel with rose water for success. Witch hazel provides antioxidant and antibacterial protection to rid your face of impurities and let your natural glow flourish. The rose water not only cleanses your pores and smooths them out, but it also hydrates your skin. And the Face Mist also uses aloe vera for added moisture and retention. It’s a simple and classic, refreshing mist.
I can speculate endlessly on the reasons as to why dating is like this right now, but I won’t. As long as I’m always putting forth the best version of myself and treating others well, I’ll be fine. I know the universe will reward me with what I deserve. And in the meantime, no man is worth stress and bad skin. Sadly F*boys may never go away any time soon, and we may never get that magical spray. But I’m certainly going to use these face mists to refresh, and spray no-good men, wrinkles, and dry skin away. You should too, sis.
