Spritz your way to hydrated skin

Add these must-have facial and body mists to your beauty routine for luminous, refreshed and sweet-smelling skin.

Once simply a fancy way to spritz water on your face, mists have expanded to become so much more than that.

So what’s behind the phenomenon? It all comes down to their multitude of uses.

Evian Eau Mineral Brumisateur Spray has long been feted by the beauty industry. Essentially spring water in spray form, its original purpose was to refresh skin.

But then make-up artists realised it was equally effective as a finishing spray, adding dewiness to makeup and eliminating cakeyness in the process.

Fast forward to 2018 and there’s now a facial mist for each and every beauty concern.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourites:

Supple skin

Perfect for the time-poor, Paris Hilton’s Unicorn Face Mist Limited Edition helps refresh the face and add suppleness thanks to rejuvenating rosewater extract.

Mask alternative

If your skin needs a detox but you’re not a fan of masks, LeQure’s Detox Spray offers an effective alternative – combining the healing powers of fulvic and humic acid to fight off free radicals while infusing the skin with essential nutrients.


A’kin Hydrating Mist Toner is a great way to introduce toning into your skincare routine without using something too astringent that can strip the skin of its natural oils.

Body mist

Fragrance in a can – the sophisticated 2018 equivalent of the body sprays of the ’90s.

Missguided is leading the pack with its debut body mist, Babe Power. Its blend of marshmallow and citrus notes quickly becoming the fastest-selling perfume in the UK.

Hair perfume

Now your skin is sorted, how about something for your hair?

My.Organics Hydrating Hair Perfume refreshes the hair, hydrates and polishes the follicles in addition to giving the hair a light scent, thanks to notes of rose, lemon and sweet fennel.
