Favourite Hydrating Mists!!

Favourite Hydrating Mists!!

Right first things first, there is a lot of confusion about the difference between Hydrating Mists/Sprays and Setting Sprays. Please lets be very clear, THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING… was that loud enough. Great, now that we are we clear about this, lets move on.

So here the thing, Setting Sprays do what they say on the tin, they SET the makeup. Setting makeup refers to keeping it in place thus increasing the longevity of your makeup. This is usually the last step to your makeup routine. Most setting spays usually come in 2 different types, Matte and Dewy Finish and depending on what type of finish you want either  of them will SET your makeup. I will do another post on Setting Sprays soon 🙂

So what are these Hydrating Mists also known as Hydrating Sprays? Again, they do what they say on the tin. They HYDRATE the skin, thus adding moisture back into the skin. Hydrating Sprays are probably one of the most versatile products which  are a must have for your makeup kit. You can use them before you apply your makeup and before you set with your setting spray. I will be doing another post on the many different ways you can use hydrating mists, trust me they are a  gem to add to your kit if you do not already own one. 

There are many different formulas out there, all with their own extra perk but the goal is the same, to hydrate the skin. Therefore depending on what you like you will find that you will prefer a certain brand over others. I have rounded up some of my favourite mists out there. Hope you love them as much as I do!

1. Mac Prep and Prime Fix Plus

Contrary to what you may think or have heard, this is not a setting spray, but a hydrating spray/mist. It is a lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals, infused with a blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber to gently soothe and refresh the skin. Gives an instant boost of hydration while delivering a soft sheen to refresh and finish makeup. MAC has been kind enough to bring out 3 more flavours permanently so it is now available in 4 different scents, Original, Coconut, Lavender and Rose. I personally love the Coconut one, smells divine.

2. Pixi by Petra Glow Mist

According to Pixi Beauty, the Glow Mist “is a spray-on, illuminating potion enriched with 13 natural oils, alongside soothing and hydrating propolis, aloe vera and fruit extracts. Instantly refreshing, this relieves redness and irritation while replenishing precious moisture post-cleansing, to leave your face feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. Just spritz over clean skin before make up – this acts as an ultra-lightweight, moisturising primer – or mist on top of make up to revive your ‘midday face’
