Facial sprays are often under-rated and not taken seriously among the other glamorous skincare offerings out there. However, these sprays are one of the best multi-taskers and should be part of your makeup arsenal for many reasons: They act as toner, hydrator, make-up setter and a pick-me-up when the mid-day slump hits.
What’s perfect about these sprays is that it’s for both hot or cold wintry weather, and the boys are probably going to steal this mid-flight when their skin starts feeling all wrinkly and dehydrated. Best of all, a light spritz is all it takes to saturate your face with goodness as many sprays are packed with essential oils, fruit extracts and hydrating ingredients!
We’ve done the research, spoken to countless people and have come up with 10 of the best facial sprays to help you mist your way to perfection!

It has a light rose fragrance and is a great everyday staple to tone, set your makeup or when you require a pick-me-up. Read this review here which describes the scent in great detail!
