Best Face Mists! My Current Faves

Close ×

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while but it’s so difficult to choose just a few! Facial mists have become one of my favourite skincare addictions and I’m showing the ones that I find myself repurchasing and always stocking up on despite there always being new ones to try. I also have a few new standouts that must be shared!

Share with me what your favorites are!

    Hi Renee,

    Thank you so much for running this channel! I have a lot of problem with hyperpigmentation and I recalled you might have gone through the same thing in your ordinary review video about the arbutin treatment. Can you film a video on how to get rid of hyperpigmentation? ๐Ÿ™ I used to have these tiny freckles on my cheek and it starts to spread to a patch really fast and nothing really works to reduce the pigment. The same thing happens to my mom. It would be nice if you could talk about OTC as well as prescribed treatments and how it works out for you. Thank you so much!

    Hi Renee! Love your channel and yes, I too am obsessed with your suggestions and my wallet often takes a hit after watching your videos but I am a self proclaimed skincare enthusiast and wouldn't have it any other way. I catalog my DIY recipes and this is one I also make often. It is wonderful, thanks so much for sharing. I am hoping you could suggest a DIY Jasmine facial mist. I am now on my third bottle of The Jasmine Garden which is AMAZING but quite pricey and with the way I go through it ( it's quickly become one of my very favorites!) I would love any recommendations you may have for a comparable DIY so I may be able to sub it out on occasion. Thanks so much for any feedback you may have. I take your word as gospel and know if I could get anywhere close to a great substitute potion it will be from you! Peace and love xo

    Love this! Can you share how you like to use facial mists and how they fit into your day to day skincare? PS I would love to see a series on specific ingredients, what they do, why you need them, how to use them, and great products that make the most of them. There are so many different individual ingredients out there and you're the only one I've seen with the focus on ingredients like you have…it's only the most important factor when choosing a skin care product! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love your videos so much! <3

    Do any of these also prolong and set your makeup?? I'm using the Urban Decay all nighter and want something else that will also hydrate and Give a subtle glow. (First time finding you and I'm not sure if you only dedicate to Korean lines, sorry. You seem so knowledgeable though and I enjoy your videos so far! Look forward to learning more from you!)

    After watching your previous video, I purchased the Oolu Mist…I LOVE how well it hydrates!!!
    I'm extra careful where I mist because it goes everywhere, I'm seriously considering using a shower cap every time I mist lol (not joking)
    I must get a hold of the Dr. Wu Hydrating Mist, but haven't found it yet.
    Thank you for another wonderful video!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Fresh rose toner is my baby – I love her so much. Anything with rose really. The herbivore and Jurlique rose mists are also fantastic. I also found one at Anthropologie from a brand called Miyu, I bought the mini bottle of the Hydrate Mi mist, which is rose and camellia based. I'm enjoying it.
