- Best Hydrating Face Mists
The 15 Best Hydrating Face Mists of 2023
Rewind to a couple of years ago and face mists were once considered a fad; a product that was only ever good for a quick pick-me-up on a hot summer’s day. Fast forward to the here and now and they’re undoubtedly the most sought-after skin care product on the market.
Face mists have definitely proved themselves as the underdog. What was once brushed off as ‘just a fancy water spray’ has now become our ultimate skin saviour. Seriously, we challenge you to find a beauty desk without one.
Whether you want to achieve a dewy glow, mattified finish or protection from city-pollution, face mists are packed with the exact same ingredients and benefits as your moisturiser, the only difference being that they are suspended in liquid form.
If there’s one thing that a face mist can do really well though, it’s hydrate. They can transform your skin from dull and dry to seriously dreamy in just a few spritzes. Sounds, good, right? Well, it gets better.
