My Facial Spray Collection
I am constantly on the hunt for facial sprays to soak my face in moisturized happiness. I currently have a collection of 5 sprays on my desk and wanted to share my thoughts on them with you. MAC Fix+ has been a spray that has stayed in my collection for 4+ years, and is a product I will continue to repurchase over and over. It acts like a primer spray, makeup setting spray, and face refresher all in one. I preferred the scent of the limited coconut version that they teased us with last year, but I will always love the traditional smell of cucumber too.
The more affordable alternative facial spray is the Mario Badescu Rose Water Spray, which I discovered this year in the shelves at Urban Outfitters, and am already on my second bottle! If you like the scent of rose and want a facial spray that will save you a buck, this is the one for you.
Another long-tme favourite of mine is the Caudalie Grape Water Spray. I find that this version brings the most hydration out of all of the sprays in my collection, and smells beautifully fresh when sprayed. I keep a full bottle on my skincare shelf and a travel sized version in my purse for daily use. If you have dry skin this is a must have!
The Avene Thermal Water Spray is another wonderful option if you're looking for a spray to refresh you throughout the day. The ingredients are truly just water, so it doesn't necessarily contain any extra hydrating ingredients like some of the other options. I use this to wake myself up in the morning or to just give me a boost midday.
The final spray in my collection is the Anthroposophe Rose Water Spray, which hails from a natural company in San Francisco. I love their packaging, it smells like a fresh rose when you spray it on your face, and makes the skin feel very plump and refreshed. This would be my choice for an alternative to the Mario Badescu -- it has all of the wonderful benefits of rose but without any added chemicals. This is one to try if you are a rose fan and want to add a natural spray to the mix!
And those are all of the facial sprays / setting sprays / hydrating sprays and so on in my collection! Let me know in the comments below what some of your favourite facial sprays are; I'm always on the hunt for a new addition! XO
