If you’re feeling dubious about the usefulness of facial mists, you’re certainly not alone. Let’s be honest: they look like fancy, expensive spray bottles full of water (and, in fact, some of them are. See Evian’s Mineral Water Spray.) But in spite of their appearance, facial mists can make a great addition to your makeup kit because of the essentials oils and other actives that they’re infused with. Not only do they set your makeup (adding a bit of moisture on top makes things look more natural and gets rid of that over-done look), they also help to hydrate and soothe your skin throughout the day. Oh, and if you keep yours in the fridge, they can be super refreshing on hot days. Just don’t go overboard with the spritzing. Soaking wet is rarely a good look.
