In case you’re wondering what the heck 촉촉 (chok chok) means you may have heard it in other terms such as ‘glass skin’ or ‘glow’. 촉촉 means moist and 촉촉하다 (chok chok hada) means to be moist which is the ideal makeup and skin appearance in Korea which varies greatly from the Western perspective that favors matte. This can be hard to achieve for those with oily skin (like myself) without looking greasy, but this mist does the job! It is a MUST HAVE in my makeup arsenal ♥
BANILA CO dear hydration facial mist
Although there may be some kind of facial mist in every Korean brand this particular one caters specifically to that coveted glowy appearance. When you think of a facial mist most of the time it is associated with skincare but this one is more of an aid to makeup than it is to overall skin health.
This is primarily applied after your skincare and before your primer but can also be applied after makeup application to remove any matte-ness from setting powders. This can also be applied for an extra glow on top of your skincare on days you want to go barefaced. I wouldn’t recommend wearing this to sleep as it’s not actually a skincare product.
I purchased two bottles in Korea because I couldn’t find it ANYWHERE online at the time. I found it online recently (and surprisingly) at RILEYROSE.COM! It’s the only online store I’ve seen it at and I don’t know how long they will stock it for. I’m planning to order a few next month because I’m half way through each bottle. Any of my acquaintances that have the opportunity to visit Korea I always tell them to pick up a bottle or two! I’m periodically checking websites to see if it pops up and if it does I’ll be sure to keep you guys updated!
