Hydrating Elixir I
The nutrient-dense Hydrating Elixir I by Laurel Skin, formerly Normal/Mature Elixir, gives skin a nourishing and refreshing feel. An organic blend of ingredients helps to tone down signs of inflammation while offering a feel of healthy moisture for a youthful appearance. With potent botanicals of lemon balm, chamomile, helichrysum, and frankincense, your skin will look balanced and restored. In addition, rose hydrosols offer feelings of maximum all-day hydration. Mature and dry skin types will also benefit from the inclusion of therapeutic grade essential oils, such as rose geranium, sandalwood, and carrot seed, that provide a tightened, toned, and healed quality.
Formula Update: Higher concentration of house-made medicinal plant compounds, rich in humectants, acids, enzymes, mucilaginous compounds, polysaccharides, and botanical hyaluronic hydrates surface cells, in addition to deeply hydrating connective tissue. Additions and increases of sandalwood, frankincense, marshmallow, reishi, rosehip, hibiscus, hawthorne, and schisandra make this product smell more medicinal and spicy than before.

A former sommelier, she relies on her highly trained senses and deep knowledge of growing practices to craft therapeutic-grade, high-performance skincare. As a leader of the slow beauty movement, Laurel’s namesake brand, Laurel Skin, is the creative expression of her strongest conviction: that beauty should be a loving, ritualistic practice with the finest raw, organic, farm-sourced and handcrafted materials. She harvests her ingredients for her Laurel Skin products from organic farms within a 100-mile radius from her Northern California studio, ensuring that her oils and infusions, each vibrant in color and bursting with plant energy, meet her exacting standards for organic plant-based skincare products.

When I first used the reformulated version of this product, I disliked the scent and didn't think I would use it. But I find that a lot of toning mists don't really hydrate the skin very well, so I went back to this because it works so beautifully between the Effortless cleanser and either the Unburden or Sun serums. The scent is kind of medicinal, but when I use Laurel's products together, I get compliments on how youthful and glowy my skin is. I have even had someone compliment me on my "makeup" over Zoom when I wasn't wearing any. My skin stays plump, soft, and hydrated all day without needing a cream or balm after the oil. That is unique for me to Laurel products and I think this mist is an important step. The old version was lovely but not quite as effective. I want to try more of Laurel's mists too.
Addictive. The scent is different than what I expected, but I like the results. I use this to mix in with my serums to improve ***********, absorption, and make my serums last a little longer.
I wish I had read the notice about the change in the product more closely. The Normal/Mature elixir smelled more like crushed flowers. The new formula really is very medicinal smelling. Since I mostly use spray toners as part of a relaxing ritual, and not with treatment in mind, I won't repurchase this again.
I love all of Laurel's range - I've tried the body oil, sun damage repair serum, and facial elixir so far. I find her range incredibly hydrating without being greasy. Enchanting smell too. Total winner.
