Are you a fan of face mists? Oh I know I am. Before, I didn’t really see the use of them and had been wondering why one would need such. But there’s a lot to love about face mists and I am an eternal convert to them.
In the past, the only face mist I’ve ever tried was Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray, which I’m still using right now as my favorite makeup setting spray of all time. I’m in love with that setting spray, and it does set my makeup to last for hours, but there were times when I needed to use something to refresh my skin in the middle of the day, or to make it glowy. I also wanted something to keep my face hydrated during long haul flights, which can really suck the life out of your skin. I’ve tested several face mists a couple of times lately, and it’s true that not all face mists are created equal. Some are meant as primers, while some are meant to be used only during dry seasons, while there are also some that are only meant to refresh and hydrate skin.
As someone with a somewhat oily skin, I still use a face mist regularly to make my skin look fresh and slightly dewy. There’s a couple of face mists that I like during my tests, and they will be slowly reviewed here in the blog. For now, my go to, every day, all around face mist is the Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Sleek Mist. I know, the packaging is SO cute and there’s substantial product in its decent-sized container. There’s two kinds of this particular face mist; The Sleek Mist (absorbs excess oil) and The Moist Mist (provides lasting hydration). I have the Sleek Mist, which suits my skin better.
The Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Sleek Mist not only absorbs and controls oils, but it also hydrates, evens out powder foundations, non-drying, and sets the makeup as well. It has a nice and relaxing baby powder scent to it. It is also formulated with antioxidants and hydrating ingredients to keep the skin light, fresh and never greasy. The only downside is that you may need to apply this often as it tends to dissolve or evaporate fairly easily, specially during cold or dry seasons. Also, the bunny cap may not be secure enough to cover the spray nozzle with time, which luckily hasn’t happened to me yet, although I know some people who complained about it. On the other hand, another great thing about this face mist is its price. It is priced well at $15 for 60 ml. It’s not very pocket size, but it’s great enough to be a travel size. Also, it’s a K-beauty staple. I mean, who couldn’t resist admiring K-beauty brands and products?
