Best calming face sprays and mists to boost your mood and skin

Posted by for Beauty

Struggling to stay upbeat throughout the day? We round up the best face mists and sprays that will help give you – and your skin – a comforting boost.

Are you struggling to concentrate right now? Often find yourself feeling completely drained during the 3pm slump? Or do you feel like you’ve just hit a brick wall altogether? If you responded yes to any of these, that’s completely normal. Many of us are struggling with a decline in motivation and ailing spirits and so, some days will naturally feel harder than others.

In response, you may be practicing self-care more frequently. Self-care can cover a number of things and there’s no right or wrong way, as long as it makes you feel good. For me, I’ve found pockets of comfort in face mist. I didn’t really use face sprays much before. When we were in the office, I always appreciated the scents my colleagues would spray around us, encasing our desks in an aromatherapeutic cloud – but it wasn’t something I ever did for myself. Yet now, I subconsciously reach for them, spritzing my face at various points throughout the day. 

As well as containing beneficial skincare ingredients, many face sprays are also developed with mood-enhancing scents to give a much-needed boost with every use. It’s a win-win, really. Here, we round up our favourite face mists to give your mood and mind a little pick-me-up…

  • Disciple Skincare Juicy Mist


    Created by psychotherapist Charlotte Ferguson, Disciple Skincare products are created for stressed-out skin, body and mind. This particular spray contains aloe vera and hyaluronic acid to leave skin plumped and hydrated. While the addition of orange blossom water will make you feel revived from the moment the spray leaves its nozzle.

  • Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist


    This popular spray was inspired by the Queen of Hungary Water, the world’s first recorded perfume specially formulated for Queen Elisabeth of Hungary in the 14th Century. Hence its name. It contains a patented mineral concentrate, which includes Hungary’s mineral-rich thermal waters to heal skin. Meanwhile, added apple pectin, rose, sage and orange blossom waters refresh tired complexions.
