7 Face Mists That Make Your Skin Prettier
“A face mist a day keeps the dryness away”—so said a very wise group of beauty editors. There’s a reason why everyone on Team Byrdie has at least four face mists scattered about her desk at any given moment; the new versions aren’t just dainty sprays that smell nice, they're also filled with active, exquisite ingredients like hydrosols, olive leaf extract, and hyaluronic acid. All of this means that your skin is just one spritz away from a dewy, ethereal, Gigi-level glow. Spritz, spritz.
Keep scrolling to see seven new face mists that hydrate as well as your serum.
Wildcare Ojai White Sage Hydrosol ($18)
Wildcare founder Courtney Herrera creates her line of “skin tonics” batch-by-batch using organic, wildcrafted plants, like rosemary and Hawaiian sandalwood, and mountain spring water. Drop by drop, the fragrant floral waters create hydrosols, which boast a number of hydrating, soothing benefits (i.e. balancing your skin’s natural pH). Our favorite is the Ojai White Sage, which promises to encourage mental focus while cleansing your energy and your skin.
Skin Inc. Pure Serum-Mist ($55)
Give your parched skin a tall drink of water with this refreshing,super-hydrating mist from Skin Inc. Made with mineral-rich water from Japanese hot springs, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin, this soothing mist can easily replace your toner, or be used throughout the day to give your skin a moisture boost and freshen your makeup.
SK-II Pitera Mid-Day Essence ($80)
We recently dubbed SK-II's Essence ($99) one of the beauty products every woman should try before she dies, and this mist version is just as life changing. All of the potent ingredients in the original are stored in a handy spray bottle, so you can plump up your skin and balance your complexion anytime throughout the day.
Whamisa Organic Flowers Olive Leaf Mist ($38)
Other than the fact that this face mist from Korean natural brand Whamisa comes with a real olive leaf in the bottle (10 points for aesthetics!), the water-free formula ensures your skin is being hydrated with nourishing ingredients like olive, green tea extract, and aloe vera instead.
Caudalie Grape Water ($13)
This 100% organic mist is made primarily of grape fruit water, extracted directly from grapes in Bordeaux that are rich in moisturizing polysaccharides, mineral salts, and potassium. According to the brand, a few spritzes can increase skin’s hydration levels by 127%, and decrease sensitivity by 61%—so spray generously.
