It didn’t seem all that long ago that the only mist anyone ever heard of was Evian Spray Natural Mineral Water, and frankly, what did it really do other than make your face wet and ruin your makeup? I never jumped on that band wagon. However, now it seems there is a facial mist for just about every skin-type and from every beauty company. Now it’s just darn confusing. Here I try to walk you through the top 10 beauty mists and maybe you’ll find one that suits your personal beauty needs.
1. La Mer The Mist, $60
This mist is also known as Miracle Broth The cleansers gently remove impurities while preserving the skin’s moisture barrier. Formulated with marine botanical extracts to instantly refresh, hydrate, and rebalance skin, it’s a soothing step after cleansing, the tonics help purify, refresh, and balance skin.
2. Caudalie Beauty Elixir Limited Edition By L’Wren Scott, $45
Inspired by Queen Isabelle of Hungary’s beauty elixir of youth, this treatment smooths the appearance of fine lines, tightens pores, and gives the complexion an instant boost of radiance. It’s meant to refresh the complexion for instant radiance with grape, orange blossom, rose, balm mint and rosemary. L’Wren Scott has redesigned iconic Beauty Elixir bottle with this limited-edition design.
3. Dermalogica Antioxidant Hydramist, $40
This is the one I use several times daily. Recommended for aging skin (ahem), this mist serves as an antioxidant shield with flash-firming properties to improve skin texture while intensely hydrating dry, dehydrated skin. It contains White Tea, Licorice, Rose, Clove and Vitamin E to fight damaging free radicals, while a patented polypeptide helps prevent the signs of aging.

8. Restorsea Recharging Finishing Mist, $100
If you have never heard of this new miracle brand, you will. Their products contain Aquabeautine XL® which is a natural enzyme derived from the hatching fluid of baby salmon. This enzyme only dissolves dead skin cells allowing living cells to flourish and thrive.

Suitable for all skin types it features a patented Temperature Control Technology which actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush, and concealer in place—even in hot and humid or cold and windy conditions.
