It is getting *hot* outside guys.
Although my skincare routine is quite lengthy, I love to use a facial spray at the end of my routine, as well as throughout the day to provide a burst of hydration. Over the past year I have collected a number of these sprays and although there are so many formulas on the market, they really are all quite different. There’s sprays for nighttime, for daytime, for tanning… I can go on and on.
If you haven’t gotten one already, I do recommend picking up a facial spray to incorporate into your routine, especially in the summer months. If you are at a loss for which one to try, then keep reading…
The one to use in the morning
For the morning, nothing lifts my spirits more than the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist (C$37). This ultra-fine mist (and I really mean it when I say “ultra-fine”) is formulated with 84 per cent watermelon, hyaluronic acid, and hibiscus to hydrate and fresh skin and enhance your makeup. The hibiscus also gently smooths the look of your skin’s texture and softens and hydrates it, leaving it prepped for your makeup. Finally, it also contains apple cider vinegar to balance oil production, and rice germ oil to protect your skin against free radicals.
I love using this spray as a last step in my morning skincare routine since it smells magazine and is really hydrating. Although I don’t wear much makeup anymore, it’s also great as a base for your makeup as it helps to prep your skin for the most flawless application.
The one to use at night
If you want to feel like you’re at the spa (since nothing is more relaxing), then take a look at the Cadaulie Beauty Elixir.
The Beauty Elixir (C$59) is a cult-classic spray is inspired by the youth elixir that the Queen of Hungary used in the 16th century. It contains 100 per cent natural-origin ingredients, including plant extracts, to reveal radiant and visibly smooth skin. I have been using this spray for years and it’s one of my all-time favourite beauty products. Not only does this smell amazing, but it also leaves your face glowing and hydrated all night long.
The one to keep with you wherever you go
For some extra hydration throughout the day, give the Laneige Cream Skin Mist (C$36) a shot.
This refreshing mist spray is great for touchups throughout the day since it gives your skin a blast of hydration for up to 12 hours. This mist is great for all skin types and contains white leaf tea water to support the skin’s moisture barrier while hydrating and soothing.
I love this spray since it’s so handy to keep with you for on-the-go hydration. I like to use it a couple times throughout the day (especially with the warmer weather), since it’s so refreshing and instantly brightens the mood. I also want to note that the bottle mists this out perfectly, which I know if a weird thing to say, but honestly, I’ve tried a lot of these sprays and sometimes the packaging is so hit or miss.
You can also wear this just on bare skin or over makeup to give you a hydrated glow.
The one for more sun…
Okay, so ladies we should all be wearing our SPF everyday but the struggle is we still want that beautiful glow. Thankfully there are so many facial tanning products available on the market nowadays and one of my new favourites is by Sunnatan.
The Sunnatan Face Water (C$39) is a spray formulated for facial wear. This spray adds a warm and subtle glow to your face with regular use and is formulated with anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid, witch hazel water, and red maple extract. It also contains a natural scent of vanilla fruit water and will leave skin hydrated and glowing.
i love using this at night (since that’s when I usually apply tanner). After I spray it, I like to use the Sunnatan Face Brush to help blend it in and make it all even. Sunnatan also offers a bundle with the facial spray and the brush for C$48, so it makes the cost more affordable to pick up both of the products.
I’ve used a bunch of different facial waters over the year but I have really been enjoying these ones and have included them on constant rotation for the past month or so. There’s just something so refreshing about spraying these on your face and truthfully, I can never get enough.
What’s your favourite facial spray?
