Face mists are one of those multi-tasking skincare products that everyone should have in their beauty arsenal – especially when the weather is as sticky as it is right now. But not all facial sprays are made equal, so it’s a good idea to do your research before you place a (next day) order.
It’s true that some face sprays are glorified floral waters that do nothing more than cooling you down (not to be sniffed at when you’re overheating), but if you’ve got a little bit more to spend, you can also find face mists that’ll nudge you on your way to achieving your skincare goals while lowering your body temperature. Two birds; one stone.
Whether you suffer from irritated skin, need something to brighten a dull complexion or you want to breathe in the soothing scent of lavender and feel a little more zen, we can guarantee that there’s a face mist in this edit for you.
There are face mists that contain SPF sun protection, and face mists that inject a punch of skin-brightening antioxidants or vitamin C to add glow to your complexion . Some level-up your tanning game, and others contain hydrating glycerin or hyaluronic acid to give dry skin the TLC it deserves. Dr. Jart’s Cicapair soothing face mist contains Tiger Grass, Yarrow Oil, IIex Coarnuta and Houttuyinae to shield skin from environmental aggressors, while Mario Badescu’s facial spray with aloe, herbs and rosewater is loved by dermatologists for loosening tight complexions.
The mineral-rich healing waters in Omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary Mist work to reduce redness, and the Disciple Skincare Balancing Mist combines oil-balancing pure geranium water with collagen and elastin-boosting copper peptides to address blemishes, eczema and oily skin.
