I Mist You Much: A Guide to the Obsessive Nature of Facial Misting

My favorite time of day is misting time. And the best part of misting time is that it can be any time. Summertime necessitates frequent facial misting. Nothing feels better, especially on a hot and humid day. I mist in the morning before applying makeup. I mist myself and others at work. I mist on-the-go. I mist at night after washing my face. Basically, I mist constantly. As such, I’ve grown to rely on a few favorites.

Best in Botanics: AmorePacific Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System. This water-free hydration mist contains the brand’s signature blend of indigenous Asian botanicals, including bamboo sap, a blast of antioxidants via red ginseng and a blend of mineral and amino acids to increase the skin’s defense against environmental stressors. It does a great job at keeping moisture locked in, and is very calming. $35 for 2.7 oz, available at Sephora.

Best in Scent: Benefit Cosmetics Ultra Radiance Facial Re-Hydrating Mist. I seriously love the packaging of Benefit’s b.right skin care line, and this mist is no exception. The smell is refreshing with a hint of floral — I call this one the “facial perfume.” It does a good job at soothing and hydrating, thanks to the magnesium PCA and white & blue lotus extracts. Worth noting – the nozzle on this mists out perfectly. In the world of obsessive facial misting, this is important. $26 for 4.5 oz, available at Benefit boutiques and counters.

Best in Energy: By Elizabeth Dehn Face Spray. Not only is this Face Spray uber-hydrating, misting it gives me serious energy. It’s my summer alternative to an afternoon coffee run. That energizing effect is thanks to the burst of organic essential oils of Melissa, Bergamot and Sweet Orange. Available at By Elizabeth Dehn for $28 (1.7 oz.)
 
Best in TravelCaudalie Beauty Elixir To-Go. This mist is loaded with plant active botanicals and essential oils, including rosemary, peppermint and grape extracts. It’s like a visit to the spa with every mist. It also comes in a convenient travel size that makes this a purse essential. $16 (1 oz.travel size), available at Sephora.
