I’d always though face mists were a bit of an unnecessary product. After all, how good could what seemed like water in a spray bottle really be? But after realising the wonders of micellar water, I decided to give the poor product a go – and I’m so glad that I did.
Far from my initial assessment, face mists aren’t just water; they’re a calming and hydrating mix of delicious smelling, smoothing and effective ingredients that your skin is crying out for. Particularly in the warmer months.
