Prep Priming Spray, $50, from Urban Decay
If you’re familiar with Urban Decay, you’d have likely already heard about their B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Priming Spray, which is an absolute godsend for combo-oily skin types. It’s great for balancing out your skin, reducing oil, and prepping your skin with antioxidants and vitamins to restore radiance to a dull complexion.
This year, the brand has added a brand new spray to their collection called the Quick Fix Hydra-Charged Complexion Prep Priming Spray, which is more for dry or dehydrated skin types.
It’s a coconut water-based spray with vitamin B3 that smells like a day at the beach. Like the B6 spray, this one is meant to boost the radiance of your skin and reduce the appearance of your pores, with a way more intense hydration kick.
Face Mist, $12.90-%24.90, from La Roche-Posay
It’s not the first time we’ve raved about this baby, and it isn’t exactly a brand new product, but the brand only launched this in Singapore in the last few months, and our faces have never been so grateful.
It works best for oily skin types, acting as a mattifying face mist, which essentially makes it the first oil-blotting face mist we’ve ever sampled. It’s also meant to soothe your skin if you have acne, razor burn or superficial skin irritations. It contains water, sodium chloride, and zinc sulfate which is great for sebum control, soothing acne, and tightening your pores.
If your skin has gotten shiny over the course of the day, simply mist your face with some Serozinc, wait a beat or two, then blot off the excess with a tissue.
Face Mist, $50, from Herbivore Botanicals
Sephora.sg stocked this brand fairly recently, and the products are just beautiful from a packaging perspective.
Presentation aside, the brand also prides itself on using all-natural products and high quality ingredients, as well as being cruelty-free and 100 per cent vegan.
To wit, this Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist contains pure plant actives. It has a base of coconut water which is infused with hibiscus flower petals (for maintaining youthfulness) and Bulgarian rose to tone, hydrate and soften the skin.
The hibiscus flower also contains acids that promise to gently exfoliate and speed up the cell renewal in your skin, while the rose has antioxidants to reduce inflammation, alongside aloe vera to soothe. There is a smaller travel-sized one available as well.
Face Mist, $30, from First Aid Beauty
You’ve probably heard of how wonderful green smoothies are for your body, but what if they were bottled into a mist for your skin?
First Aid Beauty has just released a new Hello Fab line, and one of the key launches is this face mist packed with ingredients like kale, spinach, cucumber, and spirulina, all of which are not only going to nourish your skin, but protect it from environmental aggressors like pollution and dirt.
The mist also throws in aloe leaf juice to soothe and hydrate the skin, as well as a botanical extract from a desert rose that’s said to survive the most dehydrating conditions. It’s also supposed to help set your makeup, so you can use it after you’ve put your face on, or as and when your skin needs a boost throughout the day.
Setting Mist, $42, from Supergoop
This mist is rather unique. While it touts itself as a setting spray, we prefer it as just a sunscreen mist. It smells amazing thanks to the antioxidant-rich rosemary and mint, which is one of the best things about it, but it also gives your skin a matte finish and helps with oil control throughout the day.
You just have to make sure you give it a good shake before you spray it. We love that the mint provides a nice pick-me-up while the actives get to work at reinforcing your UV protection. It’s available for shipping from Sephora.sg at the moment, and is set to launch in stores in June.
Face Mist, $24, from Pixi
Pixi also launched on Sephora.sg in recent months. It’s a cult beauty brand sprung from London over 10 years ago, and is best known for its award-winning exfoliating toner called Glow Tonic.
This hydrating milky mist is meant to plump up your skin with a blend of hyaluronic acid (which we and our skin can’t live without), provitamin A, linoleic acid, and oat. You just have to give it a shake and get to spritzing anytime your skin needs a hydration boost.
It’s quite affordable and great to have on standby at your desk to shield your skin from the harshness of air-conditioning.
Face Mist, $53, from Elizabeth Arden
Created in 1930, Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is something of a legendary cult beauty product today, with celebrity endorsements by the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria and more.
The line has since evolved with additions like face oils, lip balms, hand treatments, and sunscreen.
This hydrating mist is the latest installment in the brand’s miracle moisture series, and what better way to do so than a face mist?
It’s packed with a blend of powerful antioxidants and superfoods like pomegranate fruit extract, acai, mangosteen, goji and coffee seeds.
Face Mist, $27, from Laneige
Think of this as Laneige’s Water Bank Moisture Cream in a mist form. It takes the larger viscous cream particles and transforms them with a micro emulsification technology into smaller liquid particles that are easily dispersed.
If you have really dehydrated or dry skin, you will love this mist. It’s packed with vitamins A, C and E, natural vegetable squalane, and three types of fatty acids as well as hyaluronic acid.
