I have such a strange relationship with facial mists, and regularly go from using them religiously to not bothering with them at all, then finding a new batch, falling in love again, and so on, and so forth. At the moment I am fully into a facial mist phase and I’ve got some great ones to get through, with a couple of luxury stars alongside some true bargains, but the one thing they all have in common is that they do a lot more than just temporarily wet your face.
Starting with the luxury ones, you might have read my review of the Omorovicza Magic Moisture Mist, which is a brilliantly hydrating mist that’s particularly lovely for adding a touch more hydration to night time skincare routines. It has a worthy place in this list because it could take the place of a moisturiser for oily skin types, thanks to it’s bi-phase, oil and water formula that leaves skin feeling lightly hydrated without any greasy residue. It’s a lovely product and can be found here for £65 – link. The second luxury mist in my list is the Z Balance Prebiotic and Probiotic Facial Mist, which is a product I’d rate as essential for anyone who suffers from tight/dry/sensitive skin as I find this great for quickly soothing and hydrating skin, especially straight after a shower when my skin can often feel horrendously tight – a few sprays of this settles my skin right down and leaves it looking and feeling gently soothed. It’s £48 here – link.
The Garnier Moisture Bomb range totally filled a gap in the market for a decent, budget range of good quality and fuss-free hydrating products, with the Garnier Moisture Bomb Hydrating Mist being the most innovative member of the family. It’s such a great product that provides a multitude of benefits beyond hydrating skin, thanks to the fact that it includes an SPF30, plus you can use it over or under make-up (or both!) and it’s also a decent size for travel. It’s usually around the £10 mark, but Feel Unique have it on special offer here – link – for £6.95. The final product is the truly budget-friendly B. Vitalised Vitamin Spritz, which is another handbag-friendly product that’s great for perking up tired, lacklustre skin as the mist not only hydrates, but energises, boosts radiance and generally awakens the skin. It’s usually around £8, but currently on special at Superdrug for £3.95 here – link.
