Facial Mist Guide

I went on a bit of a facial mist splurge while I was in Europe and I wanted to do a guide showing which ones are good for what.  I have a ton but applying a facial mist is really my jam.  They’re the easiest form of skincare, a quick spritz and you’re good to go on hydration and soothing benefits.

There are categories that the facial mists I own fit into: hydrating, skincare, soothing, perfecting, and makeup step.

Hydrating – Caudalie Beauty Elixir, Mario Badescu Rosewater

Facial Mist Guide | Born To Be Bright

Caudalie Beauty Elixir has that minty feeling and it looks a bit like a duo phase eye makeup remover at first glance.  The packaging is high quality with one of the best spritzers out there.  If you go to Europe, stock up, it’s so much less expensive there.  This is super hydrating and works like a dream before moisturizers to help lock in all the moisture possible.

The Mario Badescu Rosewater is much much thinner in consistency than the Caudelie but still is a good, less expensive option for before moisturizers.  It has a pretty intense rose scent but if you don’t mind, it’s quite refreshing.

Skin Care Step – Caudalie Beauty Elixir, Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water

These two are perfect for putting in your skincare routine if you have dry or sensitive skin.  Caudalie Beauty Elixir again is perfect for before moisturizers and hydrates really well on bare skin.

Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water is perfect for those with super dry skin that when right after you wash your face, your skin is already dry/sensitive.  Spray this over your face and tap it in after a few moments.  It’s perfect to soothe super dry skin after washing or throughout the day.  Also spritz this on right after you get out of the shower, it feels amazing.

Soothing- Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water, Caudalie Grape Water

Nothing is more soothing than Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water, it can be used to aid sunburns, razor burns, and general skin irritation.  It’s unscented so it’s great for those with sensitivities.  Also, this facial mist is ultra-fine.

 

Caudalie Grape Water does have a bit of a scent so if you’re against scents go for the Avene one.  This one has a smooth mist that feels comfortable on the skin, no stickiness or greasy feeling.

Perfecting – Caudalie Grape Water, Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water

Facial Mist Guide | Born To Be Bright

Caudalie Grape Water to me is like spray on makeup.  On a bare face day, I apply moisturizer and wait about 20 minutes for it to totally soak in.  Then I apply this generously and my skin looks perfect, glowing, and basically Gigi Hadid level gorgeous.  It’s like a layer of confidence on my skin.

Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water isn’t as good as Caudalie Grape Water for perfecting but again, it’s perfect for those with really sensitive skin. If you want a fine mist to spray over your sensitive skin for a glowing finish to bare skin, this is your guy.

All Around – Mario Badescu Rosewater

Mario Badescu Rosewater is the obvious choice for an all around facial mist, it’s inexpensive at $7 a bottle, hydrates, smells nice, and some even say it reverses signs of aging.  It’s one to try if you’re looking to plump up your skin and reverse some of the effects of being dehydrated.  Also, Kylie Jenner uses this, so what more proof do you need?  On top of all that, it’s cruelty-free.

Makeup Step – Smashbox Primer Water, Mario Badescu Rosewater

Facial Mist Guide | Born To Be Bright

Smashbox Primer Water is obviously a makeup primer, but I also use it as a setting spray.  I used to hate this as a primer but it looks amazing with a powder foundation over it.  Skin looks perfect every time.  This also has a nice spa-like scent to it.

Kylie Jenner uses Mario Badescu Rosewater as a setting spray and if it’s good enough for Kylie, it’s good enough for us.  I’ve also heard of people using this as a Mac Fix+ dupe, I have only used it as such once.

What are your top facial mists?  Any I should try?

    The Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water looks so good! My skin always gets so dry around winter so I might stock up on some facial mists to help me through x

    • Yes, facial mists definitely saved my life last winter! The Eau Thermale Avene Spring Water is awesome for no makeup people and it adds a gorgeous finish to makeup/ keeps you from getting dry also!

  • This post was honestly so helpful! Unfortunately I can’t deal with the Mario Badescu scent, but the Caudalie Beauty Elixir and the Grape both look perfect! You had me at Gigi Hadid! Thanks so much for explaining them all! Do any of them reduce redness or is that to much to ask for, lol? Amazing work!!! xoxo

    • Unfortunately the Caudalie ones are a slight pain to get in the US but they’re but available on the brand website (us.caudalie.com) and the Beauty Elixir is sold in Sephora. The Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water is definitely the best for redness reducing since it’s so gentle and soothing, it also says to use it for facial redness on the back of the bottle so that one would be the best!
