Freshen Up with Facial Mist

So is facial mist really that necessary or is it another marketing tactic to lure you to spend for a baseless want rather than absolute need? From a beauty enthusiast point-of-view, I say it's a face-saver! First, let's understand the basics.

Depending on the brand, a facial mist is basically water with essential oils and fillers. Of course, the lesser the fillers, the better. Josie Maran Rosey Mist, a current must-be-in-my-bag-all-the-time, lists rose oil and purified water as main ingredients.

I consider facial mist a multi-tasker because I use it to set my makeup, as a toner, as a mid-day glow booster, and whenever I feel like my skin needs extra hydration. And yeah, while writing this post, I just sprayed my face with The Face Shop Cooling Mist (exclusively sold in The Face Shop standalone stores).

I don't know who's that OA lady above but she just confessed that she's addicted to face mist. Here are some must-try's, according to her:




Do you use facial mists? if so, what's your go-to brand?

  1. I love the idea of facial mist but I can't stand spraying something on my face. I have a beautiful rosewater spray that I spray on a cotton pad and dab on my face like toner.

  2. I am an avid face mist user. For myself, I like Caudalie and Mario Badescu rose water. On clients, it really depends on the skin, I might use Kiehls oil free toner or Mario Badescu rose water. Male skin also screams for facial mist, if I have to groom someone I always use it on set.

  12. Maybe I'm weird but these mists hardly ever set my makeup. I had the best luck with Skindinavia and Urban Decay. However, I love to use the water ones in the Summer. I keep them cool and it's SO refreshing after you come in from outside in the heat.

    1. I like that Skindinavia too! Maybe I should have a mini fridge in my makeup/office room to keep all these mists, masks and even perfumes.... Decisions, decisions.
