I love me a good spritz. I am that person that douses their face in setting spray after I’ve done my makeup because not only does it feel delightful, it also melts all of the makeup together so you look like a seamless dream. Before my final setting spray, my face normally goes through at least two other sprays that I use for various purposes.
Toners in a spray form are super convenient and easy to apply. There are also a bunch of refreshing sprays that help hydrate the skin and are perfect for keeping cool during spring and summer!
While I love ALL of these mists, I ranked them in order of how I would generally recommend them, based off of price and usefulness. But it all depends on what your skincare concerns are and budget!
Kopari Coconut Rose Toner ($24 for 5.1 ounces) : This toner is here to make everyone happy: cruelty-free, phthalate-free, non-GMO, vegan AND organic! Phew! I’ve only had this for a few days but am already a big fan. The rose fragrance isn’t too overwhelming and the coconut definitely helps balance out the scent. Another toner with Witch Hazel, this mist is ultra-fine and the packaging is super luxe.
Kaplan MD Clarifying Toner ($35 for 3.3 ounces): This toner is great for all skin types with its calming aloe and clarifying Witch Hazel. It really helps to tighten your pores without leaving your skin feeling dry. I love how convenient toners are in a spray and find that it helps me from wasting product by dumping too much onto a cotton pad. This one smells very herbal and leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed.
Dermalogica UltraCalming Mist ($37 for 6 ounces): This spray can be used much like a toner and claims to helps calm down redness and inflammation with it its oat extract. My face is quite sensitive and can get very red, so I wouldn’t say that this is going to erase redness, but it does feel very cooling and hydrating on the skin and use it a lot to give my skin an extra boost of moisture.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Face Mist ($17 for 3.3 ounces): This mist is infused with vitamin E to help hydrate dry skin. I use this interchangeably with the Dermalogica spray after washing and before moisturizing, then sometimes again before makeup (I’m a big fan of the whole Vitamin E line, especially this serum).
e.l.f. Post-Workout Cool Down Mist ($8 for 2.7 ounces): This mist isn’t going to offer your skin a tone of treatment benefits but it has an ultra-fine mist and is super refreshing. Glycerin is the 3rd ingredient, so it might work out well for priming before makeup. Maybe I’ll try and test that theory…
Pro tip: keep your facial spray in the fridge for extra cooling power!
