Six of the Best Face Mists for Summer

Six Best Face Mists

As a rule, I’m not a classic toner fan, but a cool face mist spray? Sign me up! The very idea of a toner bores me because I really can’t bear being told to stick to a routine (cleanse, tone, moisturise? = #NoJo), so if there’s something I can chop out of a morning/evening session in favour of a more active product (such as a retinol or vitC) … I’m going to do it.

The ONLY time I DO choose a toner is…

if I’m using a cream cleanser, as it does help make sure you remove any residue from your skin after cleansing. Also, it’s great after wearing a clay-based or creamy face mask. BUT, if you prefer a wash off cleanser, exfoliator or dare I even say – face wipes (not my thing please understand – but if it’s that or nothing, as barbaric as they are to skin), you just don’t ‘need’ this layer.

Beauty In The Heat

However ‘need’ and ‘want’ are two very different things in beauty! And boy it’s hot and stuffy right now… maybe there are a few hot flushes going on too? So right now, a cooling mist to cool down your face, the nape of your neck, ankles and wrists: these lightweight extras just might be your best beauty friend for summer.

4 AROMA MIST Caudalie Beauty Elixir, with grapeseed extract, orange blossom, rose, mint and rosemary, smells so divinely fresh. I’ve never been a fan of the layer of oil that sits in this product…in case I forget to shake before spraying, but I can’t resist this aroma.

5 ANTI-AGEING MIST L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Mist is such a joy! It adds a dewy glow, a boost of radiance, super moisture hyaluronic acid boost (a molecule that holds more than 1000 times its own weight in moisture) and helps fix makeup in place in the heat. Love this smell too.
