You know all about the benefits of moisturizers, skin-loving serums, toners, retinol, eye creams… the list of topical facial saviors could go on and on. But, there might be one miracle worker you’re completely overlooking — facial mists. Maybe you’ve seen them at the beauty counter and thought the unassuming mist was nothing more than water in a can — they’re so much more than that! Trust us. With just one little spritz, it can take your complexion from lackluster to hydrated, radiant, dewy, bright and beautiful!

Facial Mists

Facial Mist Benefits

Not only do they vary in size, shape, color and scent, but facial mists also vary in purpose.

Brightening: If your skin is looking a little lifeless and dull, a mist packed with antioxidants and vitamin C like, The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz will instantly brighten your complexion and prep it for your moisturizers and makeup, giving you an all day glow.

Hydrating: If your skin is dry and your foundation is starting to flake, you can’t just wipe off all of your makeup at work and moisturize again, can you? No, but a calming and hydrating facial mist like shu uemura Deepsea Water Facial Mist with Chamomile will soothe irritated skin in just seconds — without messing up your makeup!

Makeup Setting: Does your makeup fall flat midday? Are you constantly retouching your foundation with a setting powder or translucent powder? There’s a facial mist for that! L’Oréal Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray locks in your makeup for a “just applied” look and feel that lasts all day. It even protects your eye shadow and lipstick!

Oil-Control: No more caking on makeup every few hours just to keep shine at bay thanks to oil-control and mattifying mists like Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray and NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray.

Refreshing: Sometimes your face just needs a quick pick-me-up! A refreshing spritz like shu uemura Deepsea Water Facial Mist with Mint will instantly leave your skin looking lively and glowing. And there’s no better time to freshen up your makeup than when you have to travel. An in-flight spray like Kiehl’s Refreshing Mist will give your skin a cool blast, while purifying and detoxifying skin from low-humidity conditions.
