Feeling a little drained and in need of an uplifting boost? Then just reach for facial sprays or facial mists.
Facial sprays are the best pick-me-up beauty products that come in a mini size for portability and larger size for home use. They are also easy to use, even without a mirror.
Just press and spritz! It can be used by anyone, and “even on your favourite pooch to cool him or her down on a hot day”, according to Evian Facial Spray US.
Are they necessary? Yes, if you want to feel refreshed, ensure your makeup lasts a wee bit longer into the night, or have that something extra to perk you up during a long hot day.
Whether you’re frolicking on the beach in Langkawi or running from one appointment to another, the facial spray can be relied on as a mood and skin saver.
Facial sprays are not just plain water spraying products, they come with various ingredients and formulations. Some function to refresh and hydrate your skin while others offer longer staying power for your makeup.
Some facial sprays are multi-purpose and can be used for the body and to moisturise or re-shape your hair. For two-way powder foundations you can also spritz the facial spray into the foundation puff to apply it as a wet foundation. For a more intense eyeshadow texture, some eyeshadows can also be used wet so the facial spray comes in handy.
There are a variety of facial sprays in the market, from luxury level ones that include all the scents and goodies from nature, to affordable ones that do decently well minus the pricey extras.
Sure, we love that unusual herb that only grows in Siberia and claims to offer incredible hydration but not everyone has an unlimited beauty budget, so we looked at facial sprays that are easily available.
