Joey New York Bye Bye Dry Chill Mist
The claim: Chill out and hydrate with this luxurious coconut-water-infused chill mist. The continuous mist technology delivers vitamins and minerals to the face, body and hair for hydration, soft, supple skin and radiance. Skin and hair will be healthy, fresh, pure and youthful looking, eliminating dryness, patchiness and dullness. It can be used over makeup to refresh.
I wasn't sure what to expect from Joey New York Bye Bye Dry Chill Mist. Was it going to be like those fragrant (read horrid-smelling) body sprays targeted at teens and 20-somethings? Was it going to be a glorified moisturizer? And how was it going to appear on my-tends-to-frizz-in-the-humidity blond hair?
Thankfully, the answers are: No, no and fabulous. While I found the Natural Paradise scent at little too coconut-y (although, for a spray with coconut water as the second-listed ingredient — after water — what should I have expected), the Natural Passion scent was lighter and less lingering.
As a moisturizer, Bye Bye Dry was effective and easy to apply: Spray it lightly and enjoy the “chill mist,” or go a bit heavier and rub it in to hard-to-spray spots like elbows. And on my hair, it impressively tamed the frizz faster than sometimes-expensive, single-purpose hair serums. Bye Bye Dry is a great multi-tasker.
During the sticky summer months, I want to shower at least five times a day. Any activity that makes me sweat the slightest bit — like sitting on my porch and reading, for instance — makes me feel instantly grimy and gross.
This summer, my wallet will be thanking Joey New York Bye Bye Dry Chill Mist ($18) for all the money it's saving me on my water bill. A quick head-to-toe spray of the mist leaves me feeling refreshed, revived and generally less icky. Plus, the smell is awesome, if you love coconut, which I do.
The mist's main claim is that it hydrates with minerals and vitamins, leaving your skin and hair healthier and “youthful looking.”
After a few days, I did notice an improvement in my skin's overall tone. A friend whom I see every week even remarked that my skin was looking good. Unsolicited compliments always get a product a gold star in my book.
I didn't see much change in my hair, but mine happens to be no stranger to drugstore bottle-blond dye and is, therefore, beyond just about any attempt at repair.
I'll definitely be keeping the mist nearby for the duration of the warm weather, even if I decide to spend it in the comfort of the AC.
Among the coolest products I've tried this summer is Joey New York Bye Bye Dry Chill Mist.
For the past week, during my workouts at the gym, I looked forward to hitting the locker room and dousing myself in this uber-soothing product, packed with vitamins and minerals to hydrate and rejuvenate the face and body.
Even though chill mist touts that its coconut-water-infused formula can be used on hair, I avoided that, admittedly, for no good reason other than I usually pull my hair up when it's hot. The Natural Passion scent I tried was fresh and smelled a bit like baby powder.
I was longing to take chill mist with me to a recent afternoon Buccos game that was a scorcher, but with it being a generous 7 ounces, I didn't have room for it in my purse. (Think aerosol can of hair spray!) For $18, I will continue to use the chill mist through the dog days of summer and hope to see a travel-size one before long. Get on that, Joey!
