The Drugstore Face Mist You'll Want to Spritz On All Day
What’s not to love about a skin care product that can be applied at any time of day, and at any type of frequency? Not all skin care products can claim such, but most face mists can. Face mists can deliver a bevy of skin care benefits—soothing, hydrating, refreshing, balancing, cooling…you name it. Best of all, they don’t have to be pricey to work wonders for your skin.
Skin care benefits with just a spritz here and spritz there? It doesn’t get much simpler than that. Think of a face mist like a breath of fresh air for your skin, able to make hot and humid conditions more bearable in addition to hydrating your skin. To hit the refresh button on your skin, invest in Garnier’s new SkinActive Balancing Facial Mist with Green Tea. We’re sharing everything you need to know about this face mist, below.
GARNIER SKINACTIVE BALANCING FACIAL MIST WITH GREEN TEA
If you’re a fan of affordable face mists from Garnier, like their Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water, or the Hydrating Facial Mist with Aloe Juice, then you’ll be equally as excited about the Garnier SkinActive Balancing Facial Mist with Green Tea.
The main benefit of this facial mist, formulated with green tea, is its ability to clarify the skin and lightly hydrate it. The result? Skin that’s left feeling balanced and refreshed. If that hasn’t convinced you to *add to cart* yet, this likely will: the formula is free of parabens, dyes, and silicones, and is suitable for sensitive skin. It’s also a vegan formula (doesn’t contain any animal by products) and formulated with 96% naturally-derived ingredients. As a reminder, Garnier considers an ingredient to be naturally-derived if it is unchanged from its natural state or has undergone processing yet still retains greater than 50% of its molecular structure from its original plant or mineral source.
HOW TO USE GARNIER SKINACTIVE BALANCING FACIAL MIST WITH GREEN TEA
- As a moisturizer: Since this facial mist can hydrate the skin, you could use it as a moisturizer. Your skin benefits hugely from regular hits of moisture and hydration, especially on dry days and cold mornings. If your skin is particularly dry, you’ll likely want to combine a hydrating face mist with regular applications of a cream or lotion to keep your skin quenched.
- As a makeup primer: A light layer of facial mist before applying makeup helps ensure a hydrated canvas. There’s nothing better than fresh makeup on hydrated skin, so don’t hesitate to use this mist as a way to prime your skin before makeup.
- As a setting spray: If your makeup looks a little cakey or dry after applying, spritz a bit of this facial mist for that effortless, live-in look we all wish to achieve. Use it to calm down the mattifying effects of powder for a dewy glow.
How to Use: Mist in one continuous press, 12-15 inches from the face while keeping your eyes and mouth closed. No need to rinse!
