Product Review -- BECCA Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder

I've mentioned before that I have a very difficult time finding a setting powder.  My skin's gotten drier as I've gotten older, so most powders, whether they're loose or pressed, just accentuate all the flaky, dry patches or wind up looking cakey.

And I try them all with a variety of foundation so it's not just the combination that's the problem -- it's just that my skin doesn't play nice with powder.

So I was intrigued when I heard about BECCA's Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder because they claimed it has "a revitalizing mist-like effect on skin."

When you've got dry skin, that sounds pretty promising.

The powder comes in the usual plastic tub with a silver metallic lid, which contains 10 grams of product. Inside, there's a second hinged plastic lid that locks in place to keep the powder cool and moist. There's also a soft mesh screen over the entire tub that allows you to shake out a small amount of the powder.

The powder is translucent, though it has a slightly pink tone to it. I think it would work on most skin tones, though, because it also melts into the skin so there's no real color left behind.

Because it really does have a cool, almost wet feel when you apply it to your skin, and since it's so finely-milled, it doesn't look heavy or cakey on the skin. I don't find that it really clings to dry patches either.

Which is to say, me and my dry skin love this powder.

Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I'm not wearing much in the winter because my skin is even more dry than usual and I never really need setting powder in cold weather, but I am still using it to set the concealer under my eyes and anywhere else on my face that might need it.

The one thing I don't love about this powder?

It costs $39, which is pretty steep for a setting powder if you ask me.

But if you want an indication of how much I love this stuff, I'm fully prepared to shell out another $39 when I run out.

You can purchase it on the BECCA website, at Sephora, and Ulta.

Have you tried the BECCA Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder? Are you a fan? What's your favorite setting powder these days?
