After working long hours, often make-up appears dull, drained and in need of a pick me up.
This is where the face mist comes in handy. I often have one on my desk and in my bag to freshen up during the day.
There are lots of different brands available but they pretty much all do a similar job.
The main ingredients in these products are generally a mixture of spring water and natural nitrogen. Some brands have other skin soothers in them such as Chamomile, and Vitamin E.
Some people claim that these mists will fix your make-up and make it stay longer. I am personally not convinced they will improve the longevity but they are perfect to revive a tired make-up look.
If you find your skin looks cakey by 3pm then spritz this over and re-buff in the foundation.
Also really handy to use as a mixing medium when wanting to turn a powder product into a creamy texture, some eyeshadows when mixed with a mist will give a more metallic finish.
Also good for people who suffer from Rosacea, Excema or dry dehydrated skin as many contain calming ingredients (although check with your G.P before spritzing on a sensitive skin!)
Grab a bottle in under 100ml and refresh your skin during a flight to ensure celeb refreshed skin on landing. (obviously not pressurised canister)
We have all been testing various face mists and here are a few of our favorites, check them out just in time for summer.
Avene Eau Thermal Spring Water
The best one for a very sensitive skin, sunburn and razor burn.
Very gentle and contains only Spring water and nitrogen so safe enough to use for children too. www.avene.co.uk
Packed full of skin nourishing vitamins Chamomile and cucumber to soothe this is a familiar backstage product.
Often used to freshen models skin or to turn a pigment into a cream this is a versatile product.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist
Good for a dry dull skin although I generally dislike any products that smell too much of rose which this does.
Also I prefer the nozzle style of the can spritzers as I find when you come to the end of this style of spray it just spits the product at your face rather than a gentle spray!
La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water*
Recommended by dermatologists this spray is slightly more medicinal in the fact that it's suggested it can be used on sensitive skin pre or post surgery.
Contains nothing but spring water and selenium which is an anti-oxidant.
Good for inflamed skin. Pop it in the fridge so its cool when you spray it on. Heavenly
Have you tried any of these?
