Facial Mists

Facial mist sprays are just what they sound like: misting bottles or atomizers filled with a liquid designed to soothe, moisturize, relax or rejuvenate your face. They may contain sunscreen, minerals, antioxidants or other ingredients that nourish and protect your skin. They are great to have, especially in the heat of summer or the extreme cold of winter. Using a hydration mist is great no matter what makeup you are wearing since they hydrate, refresh, protect, and can even help to set your makeup.
Facial mists also moisturize the skin and help you feel more refreshed in the morning before you wear make-up.
TIP: Mist your face with a visible layer of your facial spray before applying your moisturizing cream for SPF 15 sunscreen. This way, your moisturizer will lock the dewy texture delivered by your facial mist.

Whether you have oily, dry, combination or sensitive skin, I think everyone can do with a facial spray to keep our skin constantly refreshed.  They do not cost too much and you have various choices in the market to choose from; like Vichy Thermal Spa Water, La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, Shu Uemura Depsea Water and Evian Mineral Spray. And they’re great for setting makeup as well!
You can also mist your eyeshadow brush a little to apply your eyeshadow so that they can stay longer or look more vibrant/dramatic.
Mists are beauty lifesavers and can take you from looking tired and lackluster to bright and dewy in seconds.
Mists that are simply mineral water usually cost around $10 to $15. Others contain herbs, oils and extracts to firm up, moisturize, invigorate or protect your skin. Many mists also contain sunscreen -- always a good idea -- so that you can moisturize and add some extra skin protection on top of your makeup. If you're a fan of aromatherapy, you can look for a spray with essential oils or herbal extracts. Which one you choose is primarily based on what smells good to you and what mood or feeling you're trying to conjure.
