9 multitasking face mists to keep on your desk this winter
These do WAY more than just refresh your skin
Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / July 10 2019
Don’t listen to what your cynical ‘it’s just another unnecessary skin care step’ friend says. Face mists are the absolute jam. Whether you’re looking to calm irritated skin, add a boost of hydration, or brighten a dull, dry complexion (thanks, winter), a single spritz of a face mist has the ability to turn your skin around.
The best part? There’s now a whole new generation of face mists offering everything from antioxidants for pollution, aloe vera to minimise irritation, probiotics to balance the skin, and salicylic acid to keep your cute face spot-free…you name it, they do it.
Even better, with these guys you can literally hit refresh anytime, anywhere – keep one on your desk, in your handbag, in your travel kit – because who doesn’t want glowy, plump, healthy-looking skin at a moment’s notice?
Here are some of our favourite supercharged facial mist formulas that do WAY more than simply refresh your skin.
Murad Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist
Prebiotic skin care has become somewhat of a buzzword lately – and it’s totally worth the hype. Why? Because good bacteria is the key to healthy skin. And this little milky mist has got you sorted. Murad Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist is a peptide-rich, hydrating facial mist that can be used as a toner, makeup primer or setting spray. It replenishes the skin with prebiotics to balance its microbiome for healthier-looking skin.
Skinstitut Multi-Active Mist
Skinstitut Multi-Active Mist offers antioxidant protection, redness relief and radiance in one nifty little bottle. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid for hydration, vitamin C for glowing skin, niacinamide to minimise oil production, ginseng to boost circulation, and liquorice root to ease inflammation and help hide pigmentation spots. Impressed?
Caudalié Beauty Elixir
A refreshing and soothing spritz of rosemary and mint at 4pm? Yes, please. Caudalié Beauty Elixir is a natural cult-favourite mist known for its ability to reduce pore size thanks to rose extract. It also contains orange water flower to soften and hydrate skin so you don’t get that tight, uncomfortable post-toner feeling.
BYBI Beauty Mega Mist
There’s a lot to love about this vegan hyaluronic acid face mist. Not only does BYBI Beauty Mega Mist drench your face with a good, solid dose of hydration, but it’s also crammed with skin-soothing ingredients like rose, lemon balm and orange flower water (yes, it smells like heaven!) to help improve the tone and texture of the skin. If that’s not enough, aloe and a touch of algae help kick dryness and irritation to the kerb. Neat.
First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Vital Greens Face Mist
Yes, it looks like a healthy smoothie, and yes, we want to spray it on our face. First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Vital Greens Face Mist is fortified with green superfoods (can you tell?) including, kale, spinach and cucumber, to instantly quench, cool and nourish skin while staving off environmental factors like pollution. Aloe vera helps calm and soothe the skin, while rose of Jericho (a botanical extract) works to hydrate and cool the skin.
Fresh Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water
This energising spray is a total over-achiever and we can’t get enough of it. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water is enriched with a unique fruit complex of vitamins B5, C and E, lemon and orange extracts, and minerals, which help protect against free radicals and provide a boost of skin nutrition.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater
Made of gardenia, rose, and aloe vera, Mario Badescu Facial Spray is a serious crowd pleaser (one of these sells every 20 seconds at Mecca in Australia!). Perfect for dehydrated, uncomfortable skin, you can use it alone or mix it with your day and night creams to add a boost of hydration. You can even spritz it through dry hair for added hydration. Did someone say serious multi-tasker?
Herbivore Rose Hibiscus
Herbivore Rose Hibiscus is created with pure plant actives, such as witch hazel water, coconut water and rose water, which work together to instantly hydrate and replenish dry skin. We think it’s a real goodie for even the most sensitive skin types.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist
Crammed with a powerful vitamin and an antioxidant-rich superfood blend, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Miracle Hydrating Mist leaves your skin looking healthy and rejuvenated, while protecting against environmental aggressors.
