Despite what we’ve all been led to believe, facial mists can do much more than just spray your face with some fancy water. Facial mists have gotten a serious upgrade and they now have the ability to brighten, hydrate, rejuvenate, soothe, mattify your skin and then some. I know, the last thing we need is another skin care product to add to our expanding collection, but I think you’ll be surprised at all a facial mist can do for you. Take a look!
1 Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist Intense (Limited Edition)

What do you think of these facial mists? Would you ever try one? I have really confused combination skin so if I were to pick one to try it would definitely be Dr. Jart’s Pore Medic. As you can tell, most facial mists cater mainly to dry skin so I’m excited to see something so different.
