Why You Should Use Face and Body Mists — and 7 to Try

If the only thing you’re misting on your person is perfume, you’re missing out on the goodness of body and facial mists. Not only are they a refreshing treat to spritz on in the heat of the summer months, they work their hydrating and nourishing power all year round to encourage supple, smooth skin.

Plus, the facial mists can also pull double duty as a makeup primer and finisher. They lock in moisture after you wash your face and add a dewy finish that keeps your skin looking fresh and radiant all day. Spray one of these mists on any time of the day or night to reap the benefits.

1. Captain Blankenship Aloe & Rose Toner

For an all-natural, one-stop-shop product, Captain Blankenship’s Aloe & Rose Toner is a refreshing, soothing, and organic potion that will leave your skin hydrated, dewy, and smelling rosy. The rose essential oil uplifts, heals, and soothes while lemongrass essential oil balances oily skin and fights blemishes. Plus, it has astringent properties thanks to witch hazel while the white willow extract is a natural source of salicylic acid that helps clear pores. It can even be used as a cooling after-sun spray thanks to that aloe vera. We told you it had a lot to offer.

2. Plant Re: Fresh Organic Toning Facial Mist

Re: Fresh Organic Toning Facial Mist | Plant Apothecary

A twofer of sorts, Plant Apothecary’s Re: Fresh Organic Toning Face Mist can be used in two ways. First, it acts as a refreshing, pick-me-up mist for the face. Secondly, it doubles as a toner to gently sweep away any leftover dirt or debris after you wash your face and before applying moisturizer. It hydrates and nourishes skin with soothing cucumber, rosewater, and aloe vera — while toning and refreshing with witch hazel and antibacterial lemongrass.

3. Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist

Deep sea water is taken from the depth of the ocean where sunlight doesn’t reach for the Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist. Natural aromatic extracts, such as refreshing mint, are then added to the mist, which rejuvenates and hydrates the skin, hair, and body.

4. Caudalie Grape Water

We love Caudalie Grape Water for its simple ingredient list that’s composed entirely of organic grape water from fruit in Bordeaux, France. But, don’t let the simplicity fool you. This signature formula packs a punch with the dual power to increase hydration and reduce sensitivity, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin. It’s like a glass of wine for your face!

5. The Gnarly Whale Body Tonic

The Gnarly Whale Body Tonic is like the best of both worlds, between a body oil and a body mist. It contains a boosting blend of oils, including avocado oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and jojoba oil, which are all filled with healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants that aid in moisturizing the skin. These same powerful ingredients help improve the appearance of dry skin and help combat irritation. With scents like Thai coconut, lemongrass mint, and lavender, you’ll want to spray this on all day long.

6. Philosophy Amazing Grace Body Mist

The message on the bottle of Philosophy Amazing Grace Body Mist is reason enough to add this product to your regimen: “Grace is one simple act that makes an amazing impact.” But the multipurpose, fine mist also moisturizes and conditions skin with natural oils that leave a luxuriously soft, satin finish and a clean, floral fragrance of bergamot and muguet blossoms.

7. Sigil Aura Room + Body Spray

Speaking of good scents, Sigil Aura Room + Body Spray features notes of agarwood, palo santo, and grapefruit. The plant-based spritz is free of harsh chemicals and synthetics so it’s suitable for the skin. Think of it as nourishment for your body, mind, and spirit, as it’s meant to evoke peaceful contemplation, the still air of the desert, and star-filled midnight skies. If that’s not reason enough to mist it on, then we don’t know what is.
