Far from being water in a bottle, facial sprays and mists these days are loaded with skin-happy benefits that can help put your best face forward for those wedding photos. Here, we pick six you’ll want to keep in your bridal bag.
#1 Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin SPF 30 Moisturing Anti-UV mist
This multi-tasking spray is perfect for brides getting hitched outdoors – the formula’s infused with SPF30 and antioxidants to keep those harmful UV rays at bay, while deeply hydrating your skin with the brand’s Aquagenium patent, a combination of apple seed extract and Vitamin PP (aka Vitamin B3 which keeps skin and hair healthy).
The superfine spray nozzle delivers an ultra-fine mist that settles weightlessly and gives a subtle sheen – and it smells fantastic, too.
$19.90 for 50ml, available from 1 April 2018, at major Watsons and Guardian stores, Unity, Robinsons, Welcia-BHG, Lazada and Zalora.
#2 Mario Badescu Skincare Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea
Aloe vera, cucumber and green tea sounds like the perfect pick-me-up, and that’s what this facial spray does. Aloe, cucumber and peppermint leaf water soothe and invigorate, while green tea supercharges your skin with a hydration and antioxidant boost. Hello revitalised complexion.
It can be used over or while you’re applying your makeup too – for the latter, spritz your makeup brush or sponge with it before blending in your foundation or concealer for a dewy radiance.
$17 for 118ml, from Sephora.
#3 Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist
This all-natural mist has a base of coconut as well as aloe leaf water, which possess anti-inflammatory and soothing properties to calm your skin. Then there’s hibiscus for firmer, smoother and overall more youthful skin as well as rosewater for toning and hydration.
$25 for 60ml or $50 for 120ml, available from Sephora.
#4 Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist
Brides with dry skin woes, this is for you. Or if you’re going to be in an air-conditioned environment all day. It contains hyaluronic acid, the holy grail of moisturising products, so it’s just the thing to quench parched skin. A blend of black oat, provitamin A and linoleic acid then works to reduce redness and sooth irritation, for skin that feels calm and contented. Pat it in on after cleansing and before you apply serum, and it’ll help your makeup glide on like a dream.
$24 for 80ml, from Sephora.
#5 L’Occitane Aqua Reotier Fresh Moisturising Mist
L’Occitane packs the goodness of the calcium- and magnesium-rich water from the Reotier spring in France into a spray bottle, which promises to maintain the skin’s barrier and natural moisture. Add hyaluronic acid to the mix for a spray that drenches with skin-plumping goodness.
$23 for 150 ml, from L’Occitane.
#6 Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50
It’s no secret that Singapore’s humid climate is no friend when it comes to shine-free skin. If you’re looking for oil control, this mattifying mist fits the bill. It’s got antioxidant-rich rosemary and mint that protects your skin cells from free radicals and improve your skin’s condition, and dispenses a lightweight mist that won’t muss up your makeup, all while offering serious UV protection.
$18 for 30ml or $42 for 100ml, from Sephora.
