Who doesn’t love a soaking in a warm bath with a good book and a glass of something delicious? Added bonus if you add a fragrant, fizzy bath bomb to your bath water.
Unfortunately, far too often store-bought bath bombs smell like you overdid it in the perfume aisle. Not ideal for the scent sensitive folks, or for those who want to avoid synthetic fragrances. Store-bought bath bombs can also contain toxic dyes which have been linked to UTI’s and yeast infections. And at $8 or more a pop, they’re far from economical.
Maybe it was a night of drinking. Maybe it was too much refined sugar, salt, or carbs — only to follow it up with a 2am bedtime.
Cue puffiness, bloat, and angry, inflamed skin the next morning. The kind of irritation that even the best face mist can’t quell. And the kind of carbohydrate-induced water retention that takes a day or two to resolve, sending your cheekbones on an extended vacation.
There’s a reason why there are so many options on the face mist market. Whether you’re looking to hydrate your skin or set your makeup, there’s something extremely refreshing about spritzing your face.
Judging by the price tag of mineral water in an aerosol can, it’s clear that brands know this too.
That being said, finding a mist that hydrates, nourishes and soothes skin (while giving your makeup extra staying power) is easier said than done. This is especially true for those who are sensitive.
