Let me start by saying that I was a face mist sceptic. I used to be one of those people who think that it's nothing more than a gimmick and that I can douse my face with water and still get the same effect. However, one day, I got to try it on a hectic day while on the go and it changed my perspective altogether. I then began using face mists when I prep for makeup. I later moved on to using it as an alternative to toner once in a while and it has eventually become a habit to spritz it on whenever I need that dose of refreshment at any time of the day, whether I'm outside or just stuck to my desk. It's definitely come close to serums and lipsticks as my favourite beauty product. And now, I'm battling out three face mists of varying price points to see how each one fares.
But first, for those who are still a bit iffy about face mists, let me backtrack a bit. This trend is highly attributed to K-beauty, with Korean women being heavy on hydration to achieve chok-chok (luminous) skin. Dermatologists have claimed that while it's not an essential part of one's skincare, it definitely has added skin-caring benefits that get absorbed and spread better onto the skin given its finer concentration. It also helps with aromatherapy, anti-inflammation, and quick rejuvenation, depending on the variant that you're using. With that said, let's get on with the review.
