Although I tend to shy away from face mists during the colder months, once April kicks in I like to add these mighty refreshers to my beauty routine. Here are my current favourites and how I tend to use them:
Every day after my morning shower, I like to spray the Eau Thermale by French skincare brand Uriage onto my freshly cleaned face. It's an ultra-fine thermal water mist filled with minerals that's great for soothing any dry or red patch caused by harsh water.I let it sit for a minute or two, then pat it down a bit before applying my morning serum. While I mainly use it in the morning, I also enjoy having this massive bottle around whenever I need a skin pick me up in the middle of the day.
Best thing about it: Its fine relaxing mist.
Eau Thermale by Uriage retails for $21/300ml and can be purchased in various drugstores.
My second pick is borrowed from the boys. It's the Clean Boost Soothing Antioxidant Toner from Jack Black. I have incorporated this gentle face mist as a toner during my nighttime routine. It is loaded with natural ingredients such as aloe vera to help revitalise skin and witch hazel to remove impurities, but it doesn't contain any alcohol, colorant or paraben.
Best thing about it: It's captivating scent.
Clean Boost Soothing Antioxidant Toner by Jack Black retails for $24/177ml and can be purchased at Sephora, Holt Renfrew as well at La Baie Centre-ville.
Since I have combination skin, my t-zone can appear quite shiny after a few hours once the days start to get warmer. I am thrilled to have recently discovered the Mist & Fix from Make Up For Ever, intendedto improve make-up's wearability and skin's hydration. With one spritz of this lightweight mist, my make-up now stays put and looks fresh as long as needed. Does this alcohol-free formula stay on for 12 hours has claimed by the company? I couldn't really tell you since I don't usually wear my makeup for that long. But that being said, what an improvement it has made on my appearance.
A word of advice: If you don't want to end up drenched, make sure not to hold the bottle too close to your face because the nozzle hole is rather large compared to similar face mists.
Best thing about it: It adds the most natural and radiant finish to the face.
Mist & Fix by Make Up For Ever retails for $34/4.22 oz and can be purchased at Sephora.
