Face mists are packed with soothing ingredients that offer an antidote to fatigued complexions and they can be used at multiple points throughout the day: packed in your bag for a midday pick-me-up or stored in the fridge for a post-workout blast of cool. They also work to help tame a myriad of concerns: they can calm irritated skin, hydrate and brighten a dull, dry complexion, or simply boost your mood. An added plus is that they can be spritzed under or over makeup as a perfect pick-me-up, whatever the weather, no matter the season.

And really, there are two types of people in this world: those who swear by?face mists?and others who brush them off as overpriced bottles of water. ?Most probably fit into the second group, but we’re here to change all that. ?Because while there are plenty of options out there that might just feel like a wasted purchase, you can occasionally stumble on a gem that is so much more than that.
