Facial mist plays an integral part in my skincare routine. I keep one on my vanity, makeup bag, and office drawer. I use it pre-makeup application for supplemental hydration, to freshen my face post-biking or workout, or as perk me-upper whenever I need extra boost. I had the opportunity to try the newly launched Bellatora Uplifting Activating Mist ($165, 1.85 of oz/ 55 ml, Barneys/ company website) from luxury skincare brand Bellatora, keep reading for more details!
Nestled inside a sturdy box, the bottle is hefty and opulently packaged similar to a designer brand perfume. According to Bellatora, this Uplifting Mist is your “skin hangover cure” as it claims to refresh, energize and hydrate skin the morning after missy painted the town red. But you don’t need to limit its use to such because really, this is a facial mist packed with all the nice ingredients to prep your face anytime of the day.

I can see why this works for those with dehydrated skin post-nigh out: it renders a dewy effect few minutes after spraying it. With that said, it can be used as a standalone moisturizer-slash-toner especially as we transition to colder months. I also love the subtle green tea fragrance, very spa-like and inviting. I just wish it delivers fine mist rather than spray because I don’t like the idea of wetting my face (especially when I already have makeup on). But other than that, I am glad to have discovered this product!
