Sorry, this is going to be a dumb question. I am new to mineral makeup.

I just got my samples of JI pressed from skin-etc.com. What is spritzing? And is it necessary?

Thanks

Spritzing is applying water, or hydrosol, or something to that effect after you apply your minerals.

JI has a D20 spritzer I believe. I think spritzing helps set the minerals and helps keep your face from feeling tight.

I carry around a little aloe spritzer spray bottle in my purse (from Aloette) and it's a great pick me up during the day, very cooling and it sort of rehydrates my skin.

Some girls use plain 'ol H20 in a spray bottle to set their minerals as well.

Oh, I also love to spritz with Burts Bees Carrot spray when I'm feeling especially dry!

Thanks Mariav. That really explains it.

I still am wondering whether spritzing would remove part of the sunblock. Another thing, you mentioned that you spritz during the day. Do you re-apply sunblock, and re-spritz, or just re-sprtiz.

Thanks a bunch!!

Spritzing won't remove the sunblock if you ensure that you leave your sunblock some time to sink in. (about 10mins will be good).

Well, I don't think it would remove the sunscreen, but I am sure it could displace it, and lessen your UV protection in some areas.

I use JI pressed, and I don't spritz. My makeup looks fine and stays put. I think if you are careful to build up your coverage slowly (and check it in natural daylight) then you won't get the heavy cakey look - and then you don't need to spritz. If you want to try it, you could use rosewater instead of buying one of the expensive sprays. I think spritzing is a matter of personal preference. Some JI users swear by it!

Thanks a lot tynkerbell, faith, and Nickle. Since I have melasma, I am concerned about even removing 10% of my sunblock. I tried my JI pressed today, without spritzing, and it looked fine, and not cakey.

Thanks a bunch everyone. You've been a great help!

Also, the spritzing issue may be one of skin type - maybe the ladies with drier skin feel better to spritz than oilies like me? Wink
