The Hardest-Working Facial Mists That Keep Skin Glowy From 9–5
By Danielle Fontana , Associate Editor |
Before bed and in the morning aren't the only times you can care for your skin. These toteable mists can be used alongside any skin care routine or alone (you can find a minimum of three at my desk at any given time) to add a dose of hydration whenever your skin needs one, even over your makeup. Here are the latest launches we can't keep spritzing (you're welcome, office neighbors).

The classic wallet-friendly rosewater mist recently got an upgrade (don’t worry, the pink-hued spray is still available) with the addition of calming lavender water, chamomile extract and vitamin C to brighten skin and hydrate it throughout the day or first thing in the morning (or both!).
MDNA Skin The Rose Mist ($120)
Created to be used as a facial toner or anytime mist, this lavish option bottles up thermal water, ribose, spirulina and a blend of wild rose and Damascus rose fragrances—and Madonna’s stamp of approval, of course—to make this the new gold standard of rose-powered facial elixirs.
Free of alcohol and crafted with an instant filtering effect, this aronia berry–, rose water– and ascorbyl glucoside– (a stable form of vitamin C) infused tonic is a must for smoothing skin and softening the look of large pores.

MAKE Succulent Mist ($25)
Relying on the succulent’s ability to stay cool and hydrated in even the harshest conditions, this calming mist comforts exasperated, overheated or irritated skin with a cocktail of cactus extracts, aloe vera, prickly pear and hyaluronic acid to encourage cell renewal and lessen redness with each spritz.
Infused with alphahydroxy acids and a grape extract to gently exfoliate and resurface a dull complexion, this toner-meets-mist works to brighten skin after cleansing or throughout the day as a quick pick-me-up.
