3 facial mists I'm loving right now!

Lads, I think I have Notions 11.  I've gotten mad into my facial mists over the last few weeks and have taken a liking to spraying them all day every day.  I blame Jen Rock and her spritz o'clock but she'd be fierce proud of me for all the misting I'm doing these days!  Now maybe it's the cold weather followed by the central heating on constant rotation (ok maybe less of the heat at home, followers on Snapchat will know what I'm on about!), but I've been loving using my mists to give my skin a hit of moisture between cleansing and seruming (it's a word).  I use them throughout the day over makeup and on weekends where I don't wear much makeup, I spritz as I do my bits.  My work bits.  Not the other bits.  Ok this paragraph has taken a turn...

I've been using these three on rotation recently and thought I'd report back in case your poor scaldy face was looking for a bit of extra hydration station across the nation.  I don't find these affect my makeup at all, but I'm careful about how much I spray on at any one time.  So if you go heavy handed, you might see a bit of movement south with all of your makeup.  So start with a bit and see how you get on. 

YonKa Lotion Invigorating Mist - €32

The YonKa Lotion Invigorating Mist is pure luxury and while the glass bottle isn't very transportable, decanting it into a small plastic bottle with a pump will do the job.  The mist on this bottle though is so fine and delicate that each spritz is like a breeze... A wet breeze, but a breeze nonetheless.  It helps balance the skin and prepares it for the rest of your skincare routine, but can we have a second for the scent... I know J Rock, smells don't change cells, but this smell has me nearly horizontal with how soothing and relaxing it is.  It's a spa in a bottle, so I've been having at it when I want to take a break from the laptop and just have a minute or two of peace to myself.  This will last me for ages as the bottle is 200mls and a very reasonable €32 on the Millies website.

PS... Hydration Boost Face Mist - €6

Last year I got to work with Penneys on a skincare campaign and I still use some of the products I tested out, this one included.  The PS... Hydration Boost Face Mist is a wet one in that if you're going to spray this over makeup throughout the day, give yourself a good arm's length or you'll soak yourself.  But it dries quickly and the coconut water, aloe vera extract and hyaluronic acid makes for a really cooling mist that I think I'm going to bring away on holidays with me.  If you want to try out hydration mists and see what the fuss is about and don't want to spend a lot, this is a great one to start with.

Kiehl's Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist €22.50/75mls

This mist has a really wide wingspan in terms of the spray itself and by holding it directly in front of my face, the spritz covers the entirety of my massive mush.  It's one of those really strong, concise yet lightweight sprays and I'm going to have to show these on Snapchat or Instastories to explain what I mean, but if you spray it, you'll know what I mean!  Cactus Flower and Tibetan Ginseng is said to help skin maintain essential moisture and lavender, geranium and rosemary oils help to detoxify and protect the skin.  Again, this is a good one for on the go because of the plastic bottle and can be used as a skin booster throughout the day.  It can be bought in Kiehl's shops and from Debenhams too.

Now with all of these, and any sprays I use really, I cover my eyes just in case.  I can have sensitive eyeballs sometimes and I'm not willing to give these sprays a go without protecting my eyes, but I just wanted to give you the heads up in case you spritzed willy nilly.

So tell me, are you a spritzer?
