If you’re finding your skin feeling a bit dry and dull around 3pm then it might be time to introduce a face mist into your life.
“Hang on….is this ANOTHER skincare step?!?” I hear you ask…
Stay with us.
No, they're not just water.
If the face mists you've been using feel like water on your face, you're obviously not using a Korean Beauty one!
Korean face mists are packed with hydrating, soothing and calming ingredients. They're designed to be spritzed on your face at the first stage of your skincare routine after cleansing or after you've set your makeup. You can even use them as a pick-me-up throughout the day.
K-Beauty face mists have a range of benefits including:
These little life savers usually come in small bottles that you can pop in your handbag or keep at your desk. We recommend having them within arm’s reach so that you can spritz throughout the day when your skin needs some TLC.
They are perfect all year round as they soothe dry skin in winter and help cool your skin's temperature in summer.
We personally never leave home without one, especially if we have a long day ahead. When your makeup is starting to look a little tragic, a few sprays of a face mist will have you looking refreshed and revived.
Toners are used to help prepare the skin for the next steps in your beauty routine. In particular, they help to prep the skin for your moisturiser. A setting spray is a makeup product rather than skincare and uses ingredients that focus on holding the makeup in place. Face mists are generally made of organic, natural ingredients and are gentle and calming to the skin.
That is totally up to you.
While they aren’t an essential step in your skincare routine like cleansing, SPF and moisturiser, they can be incredibly beneficial. This is because they give your skin a little boost throughout the day.
The most important thing when adding a face mist into your routine is to choose the one that’s right for your skins needs. And the best part is that Korean face mists don't cost $130 like some of the ones at Australian beauty retailers!
Below, we have curated some of our favourite and affordable mists which are perfect for all different skin types.
With ingredients including white truffles, lotus and avocado oil it’s no wonder this serum is a best seller in Korea. It's literally sold by the multi-millions.
Beloved by Korean Air Hostesses who rave about its hydration benefits, this spray creates dewy, glassy skin while firming the skin. It also keeps it elastic throughout the day. Best of all, it comes in a beautiful bottle and was the winner of STYLE STORY’s Best of K-Beauty Awards.
Made from a base of 92% Centella asiatica this mist toner supplies nutrition and hydration to the skin while also protecting the skins barrier. Perfectly balanced with a PH level of 5.5, the light spray soothes and calms the skin. It is ideal for acne, bacne and chest pimples. It also comes in a 150ml bottle so you really get bang for your buck.
Dr Jart’s mist cream combines 5-Cera Complex Ceramides which provides long-lasting moistures and improves the condition of an irritated skin barrier, particularly in extreme climates. Hello, Australia!
Ceramides are our skin’s natural protection barrier. They are composed of intercellular lipids that act as skin’s defence against environmental aggressors and maintain moisture levels. As we age, we lose ceramides, leading to a decrease in elasticity and moisture. Simply shake the bottle to mix the layers and spray on the face as needed throughout the day.
Filled with Jeju Aloe extract which has been a skin superstar since ancient times this beautiful mist helps soothe and energise the skin. It aids in brightening dull complexions and reducing the appearance of fine lines. The Innisfree formula is free from colorant, mineral oil, artificial fragrances and animal ingredients making it ideal for those with sensitive skin.
Much like Laneige's cult Cream Skin Refiner, this mist is perfect for keeping skin hydrated on the go. With star ingredients like White Leaf Tea Water this mist works to protect the skin barrier while instantly providing a hit of hydration. It is perfect for achieving that dewy, glassy look.
Another added bonus?
The unique misting valve of the bottle releases the mist in an ideal circular shape. This means it doesn’t clump makeup, leaving you with refreshed, hydrated skin on top of your makeup.
Heimish’s mist serum is filled with rose water and comes in a beautifully packaged bottle that will keep you hydrated throughout the day. The rose water, along with niacinamide and portulaca oleracea extract work to minimise pores, reduce fine lines, provide added hydration and brighten the skin. Giving this added hit to your skin not only feels amazing and revitalises makeup but it’s slowly working to improve your skin's tone and texture. Now, do you see why we love our mists so much?
We personally love our facial mists and the instant hydration and relief they provide to our skin. They are some of the most beloved products on the market and if you can find the right one it’s a match made in heaven!
