Freshen Up with Facial Mist

what is facial mist, best facial mists

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?

    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.

      Once you started the habit of spraying, you'll be addicted Allison πŸ™‚

    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.

      Wish I can convince my hub that he needs facial mist too. He's so low maintenance, ugh!

      Believe it or not, I haven't tried anything from LUSH yet. Lame, lame, lame.

    • April 25, 2014 / 6:53 am

      I've heard nice things about Avene so I'm going to try that too

    Love you photo! I use a Rose Water spray from frownies. I used to use one from The Body Shop and also had my MAC Fixed Plus, which I stopped using… but I'm always looking for more.

      LOL, the OA photo! Gotta have a selfie no matter what, hahaha!

  6. April 24, 2014 / 12:46 am

    I have never tried a mist. But I have wanted to. I may have to try these!

  7. April 24, 2014 / 1:06 am

    I love rose water sprays!

  8. April 24, 2014 / 1:19 am

    I have a facial mist from Amore Pacific that I absolutely adore! I also have Breath of Fresh Air from LUSH that's amazing!

  9. April 24, 2014 / 2:20 am

    I'm a huge fan of the Evian but I definitely want to try out the others!!

  10. April 24, 2014 / 2:24 am

    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.

    • April 25, 2014 / 6:57 am

      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.

  11. April 24, 2014 / 3:50 am

    I'm obsessed when it comes to facial mist, I apply them every day for a any reason. I love the sensation of them!

  12. April 24, 2014 / 10:58 am

    I'm definitely in the market for a face mist, thanks for the great recs!

  13. April 24, 2014 / 12:34 pm

    I use one from Biolements and LOVE it! πŸ™‚

  14. April 24, 2014 / 1:21 pm

    I'm liking Too Cool For School facial mist, it actually looks like very runny gel πŸ™‚

    • April 25, 2014 / 6:58 am

      Not familiar w/ the brand but it does sound intriguing!

  15. April 24, 2014 / 2:26 pm

    I have never used sprays very much but I think I would like to try the Josie Maran, I like their products.

    • April 25, 2014 / 6:59 am

      You'll like Josie Maran; there are 2 varieties: lavender and rose

  16. April 24, 2014 / 2:47 pm

    I love my facial mist by Michael Todd. instead of water they use aloe juice as it's main ingredient which is both refreshing and healing. The guys in the office I work with saw me using it one day and I sprayed them and now they come to me asking me for a spritz…lol…i love it!

  17. April 24, 2014 / 3:46 pm

    I've always wanted to try a facial mist!

  18. April 24, 2014 / 5:14 pm

    I agree, it totally helps set makeup etc. I like to take a small one on the airplane and mist myself like a super fancy person. That's how a roll….(wink, wink)

    • April 25, 2014 / 7:00 am

      High five to super fancy person *insert chest bump here*

  19. April 24, 2014 / 6:32 pm

    LOL at the above comment, super fancy person

  20. April 24, 2014 / 8:22 pm

    I really donΒ΄t use face mists, but I think I should.

  21. April 24, 2014 / 8:37 pm

    I love facial mists! I need to try the Josie Maran one, now.

  22. April 24, 2014 / 9:16 pm

    I love Jurilique Rose Face mist!

  23. April 25, 2014 / 3:30 am

    I don't understand them. I've never used them before. Maybe I should try one and see what all the hoopla is!
