The One Product You Didn't Know Your Makeup and Skincare Routine Needed

The One Product You Didn't Know Your Makeup and Skincare Routine Needed

Facial mists can be a tricky thing to figure out... Do you want a mist to give you a dewy look, or do you prefer one that mattifies your complexion? Perhaps you like a fine grain aerosol, or you don't mind a pump spray that you manually blend. Once you determine exactly what you'd like out of a beauty spray, the opportunities for hydrated, happy skin open up. Not only are facial mists great in your cleansing and hydrating routines, but they serve as excellent pick-me-ups during the day. A few simple spritzes and you'll see your skin revived and your makeup refreshed. We've begun the work of sorting through the best ones on the market, and all you have to do is match your desired pick to whatever ails you. We assure you that you'll look like a tall drink of water afterward.

Rank & Style Approved


Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist

BEST FOR: A dewy glow

USERS SAID: "This product was amazing! I used it with foundation and without foundation. Without foundation, it made my mixed/oily skin even more oily/shiny looking. With foundation, it worked amazing!! It added a beautiful, dewy look back into my matte face."

Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist

LOVED FOR: The intoxicating smell

USERS SAID: "This is my new favorite skincare item. I use it every morning and sometimes also if my face feels dry throughout the day. It smells amazing and you can definitely feel the difference it makes. I've used it under and over makeup."

First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Vital Greens Face Mist

LOVED FOR: The superfood formulation that includes kale, spinach, cucumber, and spirulina

BEST FOR: The pretty, sensitive faces that need irritant-free formulas

Fresh Rose Floral Toner

BEST FOR: Makeup fanatics—use this with your beautyblender instead of water for added hydration.

USERS SAID: "Having dry, sensitive skin, this really helps with hydration and clarity. Spritz, add your moisturizer and boom, nicely hydrated and ready for the rest of your makeup routine."

CLINIQUE Moisture Surge Face Spray

LOVED FOR: Refreshing your visage without any sticky residue

USERS SAID: "I'm not even sure what this does exactly. All I know is that when I stop using this, my skin definitely feels and looks worse. It is definitely hydrating and is just a pleasure to use right after I wash my face and before I put on a face cream."

Evian Mineral Water Spray

BEST FOR: Those who don't want any surprises when it comes to the ingredients list

USERS SAID: "I use this by spraying my face mid-day at work to perk up my makeup- it works great. I wear a cream foundation set with powder and my dry skin can look and feel parched late in the day. This helps my foundation look like I've re-patted it all with a damp beautyblender."
