Bold claim, I know. But after trying MANY face mists, I have a lot to say about my Top 3.


Like lip balm, I have tried a LOT of face mists. Face mists aren’t a go-to product for most, but I’m convinced it’s because they haven’t found the right one. A good face mist doesn’t have to be expensive to be an essential part of a skincare routine, and an opportunity to hit pause on your day for a few soothing spritzes while simultaneously refreshing your makeup. The products included in today’s post range from $6 to $94 and all work very well for me, but as with all skincare, you should still do your due diligence to make sure they’re suitable for your skin type and condition.


This isn’t the first time I have mentioned the Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence on the blog, and it won’t be the last. I love this mist for many reasons, of them being that it’s just as gorgeous when used as skincare as it is over makeup. The Floral Essence contains so many powerhouse hydration ingredients alongside antioxidants that protect against pollution AND minimize fine lines and pores. I’ll use this mist before and after serums and moisturizers at night, and I also keep a bottle in my handbag for midday makeup refreshes. It has a super fine mist, which is something I look for, and the glass packaging takes an already luxe product over the edge to covetable. It is priced accordingly, ranging from $72 to $94, so this is the ‘investment mist’ of the 3 included in today’s post. That said, having been through several bottles, believe me when I say the Hydrating Floral Essence is worth saving for.


The AMOREPACIFIC Skin Energy Mist is an oldie but goodie, and happens to be the first K-Beauty product I ever tried. I fell in love with this mist close to 5 years ago, but as I experimented with other products, sadly lost track of it. I’m happy to report that I rediscovered this cult-favorite, and have happily added it to my mist rotation. The Skin Energy Mist places third for fineness out of the 3 mists I’m writing about, but is still a top 3 out of ANY face mist I’ve tried, which should tell you how incredible the product itself is. Similar to the Tata Harper mist, the Skin Energy Mist has hydration, anti-pollution and anti-aging properties. What sets it apart from the other 2 is its brightening property! Bare face or over a full face of makeup, my face looks energized, as the name suggests, after a few spritzes. For that reason, I use this mist more in the cooler months (because ‘energized’ in the summer can just look oily) but if you have normal or dry skin, this could be a great year-round product.


I will always reach for something if it’s light purple (like this lilac bottle), which is how I discovered the Zero Chill Face Mist, so judging this book by its cover resulted in discovering a great face mist at a drug store price point. Please pay close attention to what I’m about to say: This is a GREAT alternative to the Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence. Take the hydration and anti-pollution properties from the Tata Harper and AMOREPACIFIC mists but price it at $6 to $10 and you have the Zero Chill Face Mist! It is on the fragrant side, but if you enjoy earthy notes like thyme, rose and lavender, you will LOVE this superfine, moisturizing mist.

Are you a face mist lover, or have you been unconvinced until now? As I have said before, I might have my favorites but I still like trying out new products, so I’d love to know if you have any favorite face mists!
