POLLEN; Illuminating Mist

When I am thinking about trying a new product, the first thing I do is read the ingredients list. I know that seems weird to some people, but I truly believe in being aware and knowing exactly what you are.. or are no way in hell.. putting on your skin.


When I read the ingredients list on the H is for Love – POLLEN Illuminating Mist, I had really high expectations. Every single thing that goes into this bottle has numerous benefits to your skin. Every. Single. Thing you guys. Nothing is a filler. Not one thing. Knowing that, I was expecting my skin to love it. I was expecting my skin to drink that shit up like no tomorrow. I expected my face to be calm, balanced, glowing, hydrated, and dewy. Nothing less. I was probably most excited to try this mist. I waited very impatiently for it to arrive. And when it did. It blew every expectation that I had out of the water. I, one time, did not reorder before my bottle ran out, and let me tell you that I will never, ever, evvvvverrr make that mistake again.

POLLEN has found it’s forever home.

I use it after I use the RAPHA Cleanser. Just a light spray after I remove the cleanser with a warm cloth. It feels so refreshing. If you feel like you’re a little extra, you can also use it again after you use the Nourishing Face Oil, or to set your makeup. (Just make sure you use it before you put your mascara on!) I also will use a spray if I need a pick me up throughout my day!

Scott has used it when his beard gets itchy, or after he shaves. And the first time he was skeptical. I mean, I basically had to sneak attack him in between his itching. He is not a “skin care routine kinda guy”, even being with me and having tons of products around, you’d think the opposite..so  if he is sold, that is saying a lot!

In one bottle they have managed to jam pack all of these ingredients that your skin is just dying to drink up!

Rose Hydrosol: The base of this beautiful product. Rose Hydrosol has so many great benefits. Balances the pH level of your skin. Hydrates. It has anti-inflammatory AND anti-oxidant properties, which means it relieves + calms redness while the astringent like properties will help to clean + tighten your pores.

100% Fractionally Distilled Aloe Vera: I actually searched on their ingredients list on their website to see if they explained what 100% Fractionally Distilled meant because I did not really understand it myself, and they explain it perfectly as “fractionally distilled to isolate only the most beneficial strain of this organically grown aloe.” Aloe is great for your skin. Nourishing. Moisturizing. Soothing. Healing. Antibacterial. Antiseptic. Anti-inflammatory. The list goes on.. and on.. and on.. and on. I won’t include it all here just trust me, and thank me later.

Witch Hazel Extract: A natural astringent – thanks to the tannins – will help to remove excess oils from your skin.

Colloidal Silver; (do not use if you are allergic to silver): Super anti-bacterial. Super effective.

Vegetable Glycerine: Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate. Vegetable glycerine is derived from plant seed oils. When it becomes mixed, or used with natural oils, or other ingredients, it will seal the moisture on the top layer of your skin, letting the other ingredients work their magic underneath, deep down in your pores, undisturbed. That gorgeous, plump, hydrated, glowing, dewy look you have? ..Oh, you can blame that on this ingredient.

Essential Oils of; Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium: Essential oils contain all types of good vibes for your skin.”H IS FOR LOVE uses only the highest quality essential oils that are the product of steam distillation or CO2 extraction. We believe these oils to be safest for use on the skin.” – H is For Love Ingredients List

Also guys, with all of the shit that people try to sell you, that are being intertwined with our social media, and every single thing you click on bringing up more and more ads online these days to make money I feel like I need to tell you this: I am in no way being paid for writing about this product. I do not make any type of commission off of telling you about it, or trying to “sell” you on it. If you buy it, that’s great, but it does not benefit to me at all, except in my KARMA bank, which is a REAL THING PEOPLE! I really do enjoy this product so much, and wanted to share the love! It makes me so happy to share wonderful products that I find with you and this line just might be the best yet!

Okay, let’s be honest.. It’s Monday of the long weekend so this is going to be brief! I promise I will be back tomorrow to fill you in on all of the juicy bits about this tea though, so make sure you catch part 2 of this one!

My first go-to tea facial, and probably the one that I do the most is using “The Glow”, from David’s Tea (check it out HERE). Not only is this one of my favorite go-to skin products, it’s one of my favorite go-to’s for drinking! It tastes SO good! Anyway, back to what you came here for.. It’s great at the end of a long day, or when you find your skin is feeling “sluggish.” It’s so refreshing on your skin! The second it touches your skin, you can just feel all the good things happening!

I will chat with you tomorrow about other brands of tea that will give you similar results, and why this mask makes your skin feel so good because there are a TON of reasons why, but for now..

I brew a VERY strong batch of “The Glow” tea, then once it is suuuper dark, not just a few minutes brew.. but like a “EW! I would never drink that!” kinda dark! I cut strips of paper towel and dip them into the tea.. this will help them stick to your face.. then I put the strips all over my face (one across my forehead/eyes, one down each side & cheek, one across lip/chin, and one on neck), then LAY DOWN! If you try to wear this while you do something else, or be upright in general… your paper towels may start to fall off! It’s a very good excuse to just put them on and take a well deserved break! Lay back, breathe, and just enjoy a good relax!

Secret: I have also been known to double dip those strips, and redo this mask a couple times in a row for an extra boost!

You can store this mask in your fridge for a couple of days, and that way you can do this mask a couple times a week and the next time it’s all ready to go! After it’s been in the fridge and gets nice and cold, it feels amazing on tired/sore eyes!

Another secret: When I run out of face toner, When I want my skin to look and feel amazing, I use this! I know it might sound crazy, but it really does make your skin feel SO good! People pay big bucks for a rosehip toner!
