Ghost Democracy Peptide-Packed Dewy Toning Mist Review

The minute my Moderna vaccine had her two weeks to marinate, I was back outside (emphasis on outside).

While being inside, in an enclosed spaced with no open windows, still freaks me out a little, I've been enjoying outdoor day parties, picnics at the park, and patio dinners — which means I've been spending a lot more time in the sun than I have in well over a year.

Of course, I'm slathered in at least SPF 30 at all times, but being out in the elements and then back into AC has made my otherwise dewy summer skin appear a little more dull than usual.

But Ghost Democracy's Peptide-Packed Dewy Toning Mist made a significant difference to my skin literally overnight, and now I can't get enough of it.

The clean formula has a gorgeous blend of high-powered ingredients to get the job done, including a 2.6% peptide blend to help with elasticity, blue-green algae extract for antioxidant support and smoothing, niacinamide for reducing the appearance of redness and irritation, as well as pure hyaluronic acid for lasting hydration.

To use, I simply wash my face, pat it dry with a clean towel, then close my eyes and give my skin a few spritzes of the toner before I layer on and massage in my serums and moisturizer.

Almost instantly, my otherwise dried out, dull skin feels more hydrated. And by morning my skin is smooth and glowy — which is exactly what I want.

Another major key: this toner is super light, so feel free to use it beyond your nighttime routine. Simply spray on your face in the morning before you layer on a vitamin C product and a cream, or use throughout the day to give your skin a little refresh.

This product is truly the perfect summertime clean skincare companion.
