Our favourite year-round beauty product? Facial mists. And yes, of course, they smell great too.
We love facial mists to soothe our hot, sticky skin without resorting to a cold splash of water, which would ruin our makeup. And in the fall and winter, they’re a great way to add hydration when your skin gets parched given that season’s cold, dry weather and over-active office heaters.
But of course, they’re especially wonderful in steamy, record-breaking-hot summers, when our bodies crave cool and water in every form.
And the best part about them? They offer a light, scented experience midday, which is the perfect way to boost your mood with a little aroma.
Here are some of our current favourites when it comes to facial mists:
