The Edit: Face Mists

beauty edit facial sprays

So. It looks like I have an ever so slight obsession with facial mists. Not only does that word combination cause me to raise an eyebrow, it also is something I hadn’t quite realised I loved so dearly until I grouped them all together. Now I knew I was partial a spritz after cleansing oer but this is a whole other level. Thanks to the mammoth stockpile I thought I would do a quick run down of what I use each of them for oh yes I do and what are my currents favs. Let’s get spritzing!

Caudalie Beauty Elixir – not much to say here. Yes I still love it. Yes I’m onto my billionth bottle and yes I can’t see anything truly replacing this as the best hydrating toner/skin calmer/blemish banisher. It really does complete those multitude of tasks and I haven’t found anything better to re-balance my skin.

Kate Somerville Nourish Hydrating Firming Mist – saying that nothing will beat the Caudalie Beauty Elixir fame, Kate Somerville has given it a darn good run for it’s money. With hydration and sensitivity all covered, a few spritzes helps to lock in that moisture throughout the day whilst keeping dry patches at bay. My current go to pick I use this daily and sub in the Beauty Elixir when my skin flares up.

First Aid Beauty Vitamin Hydrating Mist – a second newbie onto the scene I picked this up on a whim keen to see how it would fare up in comparison. Promising hydration again, the small bottle size has travel written all over it however I just can’t get on with the scent. I struggle with the smell of most FAB products and sadly it makes me want to hide this away in the back of the cupboard.

Omorovicza Queen of Hungry Mista purchase that came as part of a trial kit, I was ready to finally give the much raved about Omorovicza range a try. Although it receives glowing reviews, personally I don’t understand the price tag. In my eyes the Beauty Elixir does the same job but better and cheaper and although it smells oh so fancy, it’s not something I would pickup again.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist* – whenever my skin is experiencing an unusual breakout or is just throwing a complete tantrum fit, I reach for this calming spray every time. Thanks to the inclusion of rose to restore and hydrate the skin it boosts a rebalanced complexion.

REN Tonic Moisture Mist* – sadly REN sits at the bottom of the list when it comes to my top facial sprays. I’ve never been wowed by the results this moisture mist gives and have struggled with the agressive and sharp spray that dispenses far too much product. Although I adore the rest of the REN skincare line it’s a shame that this doesn’t hold up to it’s skincare winning family.

  • I have a few that I really adore as well! I feel like they’re almost unnecessary, but they just feel so good spritzed over the face.

  • I really would love to try the Jurlique Balancing Mist, it looks lovely!

  • The Jurlique one and Caudalie one are two of my favourite. The others have definitely been put on my wishlist, I’m a sucker for a face mist x

    I love face mists – they’re just so strangely enjoyable to use! I’ll definitely have to give the famous Beauty Elixir a go. It sounds great :)

  • I was wondering which face mist to get for a while now since I’ve been intrigued by their claims and with no more doubts I’m going for the Beauty Elixir. Thanks for your always so helpful recommendations! xx

  • I am a mist noob so this kind of post is very useful. And I agree, to get the most out of a mist the difuser should make the particles as small as possible!

  • Love the Caudalie Beauty Elixir! I use it day and night, it’s just so refreshing and I think it helps with blemishes too. I also like the Lush Tea Tree Toner which doesn’t have a smell but it’s also refreshing and helps with blemishes cause of the Tea Tree in it.

    • I find it really helps with blemishes! Whenever spots decide to pop up a few spritzes bat it away!xx

  • Absolutely love the Caudalie elixir, but it is pricey. I have taken to using basic rosewater that you can buy in natural food stores! It’s super hydrating, smells great, is all natural… love!

    • I know it’s a shame about the price, especially as I have to keep repurchasing it haha! Love the idea of the rosewater will give it a try xx

  • I will definitely keep an eye out for the Caudali one! I have the grape water spray from them and that’s really nice xx

  • I like the Caudalie mist too but forget to use it – I’m a bit lazy when it comes to facial mists – I don;t know why. Do you think these can also work as a toner at night after your cleansing routine?

  • I recently got a bottle of the caudalie but haven’t tried it yet. Obsessed with the Omorovicza, so we will see who comes up trumps for me!

    It’s quite warm here in Ireland now (we might even get a whole week!) I am loving Eau Roma from Lush as a mist, but I am eager to try SeroZinc by La Roche Posay x

    • I’ve tried SeroZinc in the past but never noticed a difference – apart from a wet face!xx
