Facial sprays are a popular little nook of the skincare industry but their use and purpose can sometimes be a bit puzzling. I remember back when I first bought the Caudalie Beauty Elixir I didn’t fully ‘get it’ so instead of it being spritzed all over my face it sat rather unloved in the back of a cupboard. However, determined to see what all the fuss was about I put it to the test and now (4 mini bottles later!) I’m hooked. The key to facial sprays I think are to find ones that work for you and work how you want them to. The Caudalie Beauty Elixir has become my staple bad skin saviour and anti-redness soother as it helps to clear and calm down my skin. My initial confusion quickly dispersed and after some trial and error I have found a way this works perfectly for me. This has encouraged me to try out other facial sprays and see whether they can work wonders too.
L’Occitane are a brand I always used to look at on the high-street and chuckle away to myself as I tried to pronounce their name. My Mum has been a fan of their products for a while and I have popped in on occasion with her to pick up a Christmas present for relatives. The products on the shelves used to bypass me but recently I have been taking a closer look and there are some real gems sneaking around Almond Shower Oil I’m looking at you! One range L’Occitane has is Immortelle – the everlasting flower. This range contains essentials oils from this flower to deliver anti-aging properties on the skin. The newest addition is the Brightening Facial Mist, already launched in the US and coming to the UK shores 11th March, this alcohol free toner can be used as a toner alone or to help set your makeup.
As I already have a toner that works well for me I have opted for using this as a setting spray. Seems a waste for a product that packs so much, but I find this really helps to finish off my makeup. Also the brightening element really pays off. Being a fan of all things natural at the moment using this mist helps remove any cakeyness and gives a more dewy finish. It sinks into my skin and leaves a slight glow. Not just that it smells divine! Something that illuminates and fines skins texture whilst helping my makeup stay in place? Sounds like a winner to me!
