I suffer from eczema occasionally and other sensitivities that make my skin prone to barrier issues, so ceramides are a brilliant addition.

Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract
Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract is used in traditional Korean and Chinese medicine to treat skin inflammation. This study found that this herbal ingredient has almost the same hydrating effect on the skin as hyaluronic acid and protects against UVA radiation.
Furthermore, this study showed that Ulmus Davidiana root extract significantly inhibits wrinkle formation caused by UVB radiation!
Centella Asiatica Extract
Centella Asiatica, Cica, or Gotu Kola Extract is one of the most popular ingredients in Korean skincare products due to its powerful antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s a fantastic ingredient for soothing red and inflamed skin.
Centella Asiatica is a cute little plant with pretty little fan-shaped leaves. Centella Asiatica is the scientific name of the medicinal plant commonly known as gotu kola, tiger grass, or Indian pennywort. It’s a perennial herb with small fan-shaped leaves that grows in tropical and subtropical regions, including Asia, India, equatorial Africa, and Central America.
Centella contains many active compounds. However, researchers believe that saponins Asiaticoside, Madecassoside, Asiatic acid, and Madecassic acid are responsible for this plant’s broad therapeutic actions.
Centella Asiatica has strong antioxidant properties due to the above compounds, and it’s also a rich source of amino acids, flavonoids, phytosterols, and fatty acids
Centella Asiatica :
- improves the hydration of the skin’s barrier;
- reduces skin redness;
- decreases trans-epidermal water loss;
- allows the skin to return to optimal pH after exposure to irritants;
- increases collagen production;
- improves skin firmness and elasticity
- reverses photo-aging of the skin
- speeds up acne healing.
Dr. Shereene Idriss, MD, a New York City-based board-certified dermatologist, founder of Idriss Dermatology, and creator of the PillowtalkDerm skincare brand, says fermented ingredients are good for your skin because of three main reasons. Fermentation:
- “increases the potency of the active ingredient by utilizing the yeast, and through the fermentation process, that yeast secretes enzymes which make the active ingredient much more potent.”
- “enhances penetration of the active ingredient because, through fermentation, the ingredient gets broken down into smaller sizes. The smaller the size of the active ingredient, the better it can penetrate deep into your skin.”
- “increases the preservation of the active ingredient, because through fermentation a metabolite is created that prevents the growth of unwanted bacteria, therefore preserving the life of your product over time and making it safer for you to use.”
Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist includes four types of ceramides: Phytosphingosine, Ceramide Np, Ceramide Ap, and Ceramide Eop. Ceramides are a family of lipids that account for 50 percent of the skin barrier, so they’re essential, right?
- maintain the skin’s moisture levels;
- protect skin from external irritants making skin more resilient;
- help make skin more plump, juicy, radiant, and smooth;
- makes skin tolerate chemical exfoliation much better;
- skin is less likely to become irritated;
- because they prevent dehydration, ceramides are a great anti-aging ingredient;
- regulate the cell cycle and apoptosis (regulated cell death);
- beneficial for all skin types.
Heralded as skincare heroes, ceramides can now be found even in mists.
Ingredients not included in Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist
The Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist is 7 Harmful ingredients free, meaning it has no artificial colors, synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, Triethanolamine, Talx, Petrolatum, or Benzophenone.
Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist comes in a 4.05 fl. oz / 120ml spray bottle.
The scent is slightly citrusy, like its’ big sister, the Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Cream. I could go without the fragrance but appreciate the softening formula enough to ignore the smell.
It has a watery texture, similar to a toner. It is not sticky or greasy, and the results are similar to a light, moisturizing emulsion.
My Experience with the Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist
The Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist was awarded the first prize in the Glow Pick’s water-based mists category in 2022 and 2021. It is now the best mist in Korea. It was not a surprise for me to find out about this. I decided to buy this product before I knew about the awards, based on my fantastic experience with the Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Cream.
My skin type and concerns
I have a normal – dry skin type, and I live in a temperate-continental climate with cold and dry winters and hot and dry summers.
There are so many great things about the Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist that I’m unsure where to start. First, it is made specifically for dry and sensitive skin to moisturize and soothe the skin. It has a gentle composition and a skin-neutral pH of 5.5, making it an excellent pH-adjusting toner after cleansing.
The Holika Holika Ceramide Mist contains numerous natural extracts, oils, and ceramides that strengthen the skin’s barrier. This helps bring moisture to the skin and also ensures that the moisture does not evaporate from the skin.
What I particularly like about this ceramide mist is its incredibly fine spray. The mist brings a light veil of moisture to the skin but does not leave the skin greasy at all. Its natural extracts and oils give it a natural cosmetics-like scent, which can be felt for a moment, but then evaporates, at least beyond the reach of my nose.
Since the spray is so fine, it is light and spreads efficiently. When viewed against the light, the fine mist drops seem to rise to the heights instead of falling down big and heavy.
This mist works wonders as a sandwiched moisture layer between my moisturizers. It is not too moisturizing that it makes your skin oily but still gives you a lot of hydration, like a matte finish. It is excellent.
I also use it to set my makeup, giving it a good finish.
How to use Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist?
- I properly cleanse my face with an oil cleanser and a water-based cleanser;
- Shake the tube
- Spritz on your face from a distance with your eyes closed
- I wait one minute until I continue my routine;
- I will never skip sunscreen.
- convenient application
- suitable for sensitive and damaged skin.
The results are lovely. It helps with hydration, flakiness, and any tightness. So if you’re looking for an excellent new mist, I recommend giving this spray a chance!

Will I repurchase the Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist?
I enjoy this mist, but unfortunately, I’m a curious gal. I’m looking forward to trying new things, so I probably won’t repurchase.

Lastly, I was not paid for this review or received it as a gift.
As always, you do you; be kind to your skin and yourself! Remember that every person’s skin and skin type is different, so what might work for me might not work for you, and vice versa. So, before adding a new product to your skincare routine, it pays to do a little research first.
Before adding the Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist to your skincare regimen, ensure you are not allergic to it or its ingredients. You should also consult your doctor if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any medical conditions or medications that may interact with the Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist. Always do a patch test before applying the Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Mist on your skin to avoid adverse reactions.
I am not a dermatologist or licensed aesthetician, but I have sufficient experience and knowledge I gained by testing multiple products and self-exploration. Unsure? Best to consult your dermatologist.
Happy shopping, and don’t forget the sunscreen! Here’s to great skin in 2023!
