Face mists can be the perfect drink your tired, dry skin may need. They also help give you a temporary mood & energy boost.
Here are my favourite face mists I’ve been enjoying this winter season.
Top Right going Clockwise:
Mac Prep and Prime Fix + – This one is a given and included in every makeup artists kit.
Water, Glycerin, Fruit extracts and Caffeine play a huge roll in hydration, and a great tool for refreshing any makeup application. It can also be used on hair to add shine and as a facial toner.
Avene Thermal Spring Water – A very gentle, fragrance free, pure spring water.
Perfect for travel and exceptional for flights. Flying is notorious for dehydrating skin and this stuff comes in very handy when it needs extra moisture. Also great to calm inflamed skin caused by acne, sunburn or excess heat.
Caudalie Eau De Raisin Hydratante Grape Water – This stuff rules. It’s 100% Organic, Preservative free and Fragrance Free. The grapes used come from Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte in Bordeaux, France. They use a specific technique when they’re extracting the juice from the grapes to separate water from the juice through an evaporation process. Added is a touch of grape juice to create the perfect formulation.
This makes a great toner and refreshing dull skin in need of a serious boost.
Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist – Smells amazing and helps keep skin hydrated with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin A. Plumps up the skin and creates a beautiful, youthful, dewy appearance.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir – Has a lovely fragrance from the essential oils and works effectively as a makeup setting spray. However, I don’t use it too often as alcohol is the second ingredient which can irritate and dry out skin which causes aging. This works great when sprayed on clothes as a hint of perfume.
Pur Minerals Miracle Mist Hydrate & Set – Do yourself a favour and pick this stuff up!
It smells of fresh oranges and is one of the best makeup setting sprays to achieve a fresh, dewy look. I also spray it when I’m tired and need a mood boost. Super refreshing!
